The Knights girls’ basketball team have been at home for three straight games, including two games last week. First, they enjoyed a 75-33 blow out win over Clinton-Graceville-Beardsley Feb. 12. WCA could not make it a perfect three-game homestand when they lost to Minnewaska 64-53 Feb. 15.

The Knights treated their home fans to an easy win for WCA over Clinton-Graceville-Beardsley Feb. 12. The girls had five players score in double figures, leaving the Wolverines guessing where the scoring was going to come from. By the end of 36 minutes, the Knights finished with a 22-point victory.

The Wolverines hung around for the first few minutes, but it did not take long for the Knights to start to exert their will. Eight minutes into the game, WCA held a 22-10 advantage. 

Soon the Knight lead grew to 20 points in the first half. CGB was able to get a couple points back before halftime, but WCA still held a 45-27 advantage.

WCA had a comfortable lead all the way through the second half and outscored the Wolverines 30-26 in the final 18 minutes to secure a 22-point win.

Unofficially, Mya Foslien led the team with 16 points, four assists and three rebounds. Addison Staples chipped in with 14 points, eight rebounds and four assists.
