The Oglethorpe University women's basketball team lost to Hendrix College in the SCAC Tournament quarterfinals on Friday night in Jackson, Mississippi, 73-52. The Petrels held an early 8 point lead over the Warriors and only trailed 35-30 at the half, but Hendrix managed to extend the margin in the second half for the win.
The Petrels fought valiantly but come up short despite the team effort that had the number one seeded Warriors frustrated most of the night.
Junior Chelsea MacDonald led the Petrels with 10 points on the night and sophomore Katie Weeks added 11 over he own in the loss. Oglethorpe shot 49% from the field in the first half but only made 22% of their shots in the second half en route to the season ending loss. Oglethorpe also missed all 12 of their three-pointers in the contest.
