Wildcats fall to Mustangs
Bay Path College junior center Jessica Hunt of Madison, CT, registered another double-double with a game high of 23 points and team high of 10 rebounds. Despite Hunt’s efforts, which included four blocks, four steals and three assists, the Bay Path College Wildcats were unable to stifle the Mount Ida College Mustangs. The Wildcats fell to the Mustangs (64-40) in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division III women’s basketball action during a home game at Holyoke Community College on December 2.
The Mustangs took advantage of poor ball handling scoring 25 of their points off of the Wildcats 37 turnovers. Mount Ida had 23 turnovers with Bay Path notching 14 steals. Rebounding was about even with the Wildcats having 41 to the Mustangs 43 for the game.
Wildcats junior forward Kathleen Rodrigue of West Stewartstown, N.H., pitched in eight points and nine rebounds. Junior guard Christina Calabrese of Hamilton, N.J., totaled six rebounds, four points and three assist in her 36 minutes of play. Senior guard Sarah Wright of Canterbury, N.H., rounded off the scoring with four points.
Bay Path Head Coach R. J. Toner managed to clear the bench this game, giving freshmen Stephanie Winn of North Attleboro, MA, Caitlin Ferland of Vergennes, VT and Audrey Rowen of Topsfield, MA, some court time.
Bay Path is now 2-4 for the season, and they will travel to Cambridge to play MIT on Saturday, December 6, at 1 p.m.
