Wildcat women end season with loss


The Wayne State College women's basketball team saw their season come to an end Friday in the opening round of the Northern Sun Conference tournament with a 79-72 loss to University of Mary.

The game, which was moved from Bismarck, N.D., to Sioux Falls, S.D. due to the weather, was close early on, but Mary outscored the Wildcats 18-9 in the second period to build a 41-31 lead and never trailed after that.

Five Wildcats scored in double figures, led by Lauren Zacharias' 18 points. Ashly Gustavson added 13 points, Kassidy Pingel had 12 and Maya Fitzpatrick and Abby Kopecky each added 11.

Wayne State ends the season 11-16.
