“Caroline Houtman and Saige Arnold also scored points when we needed them, and Ashley Wiggins grabbed some key rebounds late in the game,” added Herriage. “Caitlyn (Dickerson) continues to lead our team with great ball handling and worked hard to get us 14 points while facing intense (defense) all night.”
