Viking women end season with home win, road lossThe Lawrence University women’s basketball team finished their season this past week with a big home win against Carroll, and then a road loss at Beloit. The Vikings finished the season at 11-11.
Saturday, against Carroll, it was the Clare Getzoff show. The Vikings kept the game close in the first half taking a 29-24 lead at the half. The second half was started by Getzoff, who give LU an insurmountable lead. For that game Getzoff was 7-9 from three point range, and 6-7 in the second half. The Vikings went on an 11-2 run early in the second half, and eased to a 80-69 win. Getzoff led all scorers with 29 points, and Felice Porrata added 22 of her own for the Vikings. Christine Brice had 11 to round out the Vikings in double figures.
The Vikings ended the year on a sour note with a 70-58 loss to Beloit. The Vikings again kept the game close in the first half, actually taking a 24-21 lead at the half, but Beloit stormed back in the second half. The Vikings did not shoot well, and Beloit took advantage of LU’s missed opportunities. Getzoff again led LU with 20, and Porrata and Maggie Miskowicz had 11. It was the final game for two seniors, Ashley Stanton, and Heather Brendemuehl. Ashley Cargile, who didn’t play due to injury, and student assistant coach Ryan Brunswick also had their last games for LU.
