From Coach Judy Harms:
“Whippets fall to McFarland in a tight contest 52-54 Friday night in their 2nd round match-up. At the half Whitewater was up by only 2 points 20-18, but it was quite a fiery after the break. Whippets fell behind by as much as 10 points, playing catch up the remaining time. The team was still down 10 with 2:30 left, when an impressive comeback took place. Whippets brought it within three, with a chance to tie from the line, unfortunately coming up short. Free throws was definitely a negative factor for the Whippets, going 16 for 29 on the night. Allison Heckert managed one last steal with 1.7 seconds left to present a missed buzzer beater. Allison Heckert led with 13 points, while Ali Ketterhagen had 10, including 12 boards.”
The Whippets will travel to Oregon on Monday night for a non-conference match-up.
