Lady Statesmen drop another GRAC game to Olney Central, 70-54
Sports Editor

A familiar story played out for Lincoln Trail College's women's basketball team Wednesday night.

The Lady Statesmen struggled in the first half on the road at Olney Central College, then played better in the second half, but unfortunately, it was not enough to find the win column.

A 14-point halftime deficit was too much for LTC to overcome in a 70-54 loss in Great Rivers Athletic Conference play.

Lincoln Trail dug themselves a 39-25 deficit at halftime, then the Lady Statesmen were outscored 31-29 in the second half, ending any thoughts of a comeback.

Olney Central made as many two-point baskets (20) and LTC made total field goals, while the Lady Knights nearly doubled up the Lady Statesmen at the free throw line (15-8).

Kelsie Coleman led LTC with 19 points, while Gabrielle Duncan also reached double figures with 11 points. Danielle Nettleton and Andrea Rivera tossed in eight points apiece, Kristin Henry netted four and Lara Benningfield and Ted'ra Taborn each scored two.

Hannah Ware led OCC with 22 points, while former LTC player Samantha Beatty posted 12. Also for OCC, former Palestine-Hutsonville standout Brooke Callaway netted seven points in the win.

Lincoln Trail (1-26, 0-15 GRAC) will play a GRAC contest at Wabash Valley College to close out the regular season Saturday at 5:30 p.m.
