The Nyack College Women's Basketball team traveled to take part in the CACC-ECC Challenge, hosted by Roberts Wesleyan College where the Redhawks topped the Lady Warriors by a final score of 94-73. 

With the loss Nyack opens their season with an 0-1 overall standing and Roberts Wesleyan improves to 1-0 on the season.

How It Happened:
Three Warriors scored in double figures as Jessica Logemann (Seminole, FL) led Nyack with 17 points on the evening while classmate Jamie McKeither (Laurel, MD) scored 12 points. Mariah Brown (Stockton, CA) chipped in with stats all across the board, bringing in 10 points of her own to go along with a team-high of 8 rebounds, 5 assists, and 3 steals.

The first quarter saw competitive play between the Warriors and the Redhawks of Roberts Wesleyan.  The Warriors landed the first shot of the game and maintained the lead through the first 5 minutes of play.  From that point forward the Redhawks and the Warriors exchanged the lead, breaking ties back and forth, before concluding the quarter 18-16 in favor of the Redhawks.  In the second quarter the Redhawks emerged with fervor, preventing the Warriors from garnering any momentum, and establishing their lead permanently.  The second quarter would close with a score of 50-31.  The third and fourth quarters reflected the second quarter as the Redhawks continued to expand their lead with a score of 47-73 and then a concluding score of 73-94.
