After an impressive win, 68-43, over Minnewaska Area in their West Sub-Section 6AA opener last Thursday night, the WCA Lady Knights suffered a tough overtime loss, 72-65, to Benson on Saturday night to end their season.

In the loss to Benson, the Lady Knights had another impressive comeback as they erased a 16-point deficit in the second half to tie the Braves, 60-60, and force overtime. Benson, however, got the best of the Lady Knights in OT, outscoring them 12-7 for the win.

The Lady Knights finished another hugely successful season with a 19-7 record. They placed third in the always tough Heart O’Lakes Conference and earned a number three seed for the playoffs.

During the win over Minnewaska Area, Liza Torgerson became WCA’s all-time leading scorer, breaking Megan Ronhovde’s career point total of 1,714 set in 2003. Torgerson’s new record now stands at 1,742 career points.
