Central Women Fall in Texas 82-62

A pair of local standouts turned in strong performances, but it wasn’t enough for the Central women’s basketball team, as the Dutch fell 82-62 against Southwestern University last night in Texas. Pella natives Haley Brillhart and Kelsey Schuring each had a team-high 17 points, and the Central women led by two at halftime, but a scoring run by the Pirates and cold shooting by the Dutch in the second half allowed Southwestern to put the game away. Schuring also led Central with 7 rebounds, and the Dutch out-rebounded Southwestern 43-38, but also committed 25 turnovers. The loss drops the Central women to 2-9 overall, going into tonight’s consolation game against Pitt-Greensburg.
