1000 points!!!

The Spartans battled to the wire to earn a 49-44 victory over Walnut Hills and moved back into a first-place tie in the ECC.  Cecelia Hilgefort scored a game-high 23 points and added 18 rebounds.  C needed 19 points to get to the 1000 point mark for her career, and she got that in the third quarter.  Rachel Reichard had a near double-double with 10 points and 9 rebounds.  Sophia Schiano added 9 points.  Sophia drew an offensive foul and made 2 big free throws down the stretch.  Rachel added 2 more big free throws to put the game away in the final seconds.  Clutch play from those two and a dominating performance from C spelled victory tonight for the Spartans!  Turpin now moves to 8-1 overall, 6-1 in league (1st place).
