W&L Women's Basketball Cruises to 85-48 Victory Over Randolph College

LEXINGTON, Va. – Sophomore guard Meg Ingram (Greensboro, N.C./Ragsdale) led four Generals in double digits with a game-high 18 points and W&L tied the program record for most three-point shots made in a game in a 85-48 victory over Randolph College on Saturday at the Warner Center.

W&L shot 63.2 (12-19) percent from behind the arc en-route to connecting on 12 three-point shots, tying the program record for three-point shots made in a game. The Generals also made 12 three-pointers in an 86-61 victory at Guilford on Feb. 21, 2008.

Randolph (2-10, 1-7) recorded the first points of the contest on a three-point shot from senior guard Katie Rechnitzer (Burke, Va./James W. Robinson), but the Generals (4-6, 3-3) then outscored the WildCats 38-13 in taking a 38-16 at the half, and cruised to their fourth win of the season.

The Generals limited the WildCats to just 32.7 percent (17-52) shooting and forced 23 turnovers. W&L shot 48.4 percent (30-62), including 61.5 percent (16-26) in the second half.

In addition to her 18 points, Ingram added four assists and three rebounds. Sophomore guard Kari Ann Pfannenstein (Littleton, Colo./Heritage) added a season-high 13 points. First-year forward Rachel Warrick (Herndon, Va./Langley) chipped in 12 points and eight boards and junior guard Allie Long (Hastings-on-Hudson, N.Y./Hastings) notched a season-high 10 points. All 11 Generals’ players dented the scoring column in the contest.

Randolph was led by senior forward Lindsay Cross (Asheboro, N.C./Asheboro), who tallied 17 points and 14 rebounds while Rechnitzer (Burke, Va./James W. Robinson) added 14 points.

The Generals return to action on Tuesday as they host Eastern Mennonite for a 7:00 pm contest.
