    As third-year guard for the Lady Hornets, Maggie Quarles mentioned, “We are capable of being a great team!  When we are playing together as a team, we have a balanced attack and demonstrate our grit and toughness at getting the job done and pulling out a win.”

 

    Three Lady Hornets showed their shooting accuracy in the past three games. Second-year forward, Erin Green, scored a career-high of 24 points and came up with 12 rebounds in the win against Colorado College.
