Westmont Women Roll to 8th Straight GSAC Win

Four Warriors scored in the double-digits to lead third-ranked Westmont Women’s Basketball (18-1, 8-0 GSAC) to a 67-25 victory over the Hawks of San Diego Christian (13-6, 3-5 GSAC).

 Lauren McCoy led all scorers with a double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds, Kayla Sato put up 14 points, Cora Chan had 12, and Aysia Shellmire had 10.

The Warriors started off the game with an 8-2 run. Nyadoup Lan of San Diego Christian had the first two points of the game with two made free throws, and then Westmont answered back with eight points. Sato hit a jump shot and a layup, Joy Krupa, who was the game’s leading rebounder with 11, added on a jump shot, and Chan put up a layup. By the end of the first quarter, Westmont led 15-6. 

In the second quarter, Westmont improved upon this lead with a 14-2 run that lasted from 7:53 minutes remaining until halftime (29-11). McCoy had nine of these points with a free throw and four layups, and Sato had five with a jump shot and a three-pointer.

For the majority of the third quarter, the Warriors went on a 17-0 run to improve their lead to thirty-three (48-15).

In a week, the Warriors will continue conference play in Fullerton with an away game against Hope International on January 28 at 5:30 p.m.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
