The Ashland University women’s basketball team did not just pull off an 83-59 win over the Hillsdale College Chargers, but they clinched the conference regular season championship with the win.

With an overall record of 27-0, the Eagles swiftly downed the Chargers with little struggle.

In the first quarter, the Eagles outscored the Chargers, 26-15, with guard Morgan Yoder downing three huge three-point shots to give them early momentum. Unfortunately, after lighting it up from beyond the arc she would go down with an injury that would remove her from the remainder of the contest.

Right before halftime the Chargers started to gain momentum and brought the game within single digits before the Eagles separated themselves once again. They went on an 8-0 run to finish the first half, putting the Chargers down 17 points.

The major flaw for the Eagles however was their inconsistencies from beyond the arc.

To start the second half, it was prevalent that the Chargers would need to make drastic improvements.

They were unable to do so, resulting in the Eagles pulling off an 83-59 victory. They were led by forward Annie Roshak who contributed a stellar 18 points, eight rebounds, six assists and five blocks.

The team shot a solid 49% from the field, but from beyond the arc, they struggled heavily shooting just 27%.

The win clinched the Great Midwest Athletic Conference regular season championship, making Kate’s Gymnasium the host site of the postseason tournament.

They look to take on the Malone Pioneers this coming Thursday, Feb. 23, at Kate’s Gymnasium in the regular season finale.
