WILLMAR -- The Ridgewater Lady Warriors ran their record to 4-0 against NJCAA Division III teams Saturday by drilling Mesabi Range 61-48. Ten players scored for Ridgewater in a game played at a rather deliberate pace. The Lady Warriors (4-3) led 21-16 at half. Jamie Munson led a balanced Lady Warriors' attack with 11 points. Katie Johnson added 10, Jenny Cunningham nine, Terra Billiet eight and Sarah Primus seven. Point guard Kayla Karnes made six assists.
WILLMAR -- Courtney Davis worked the paint for 29 points and nine rebounds to lead Mesabi Range to a 75-67 victory over the Ridgewater College Warriors on Saturday. Davis also plunked in a pair of treys while downing 12 of 18 shots overall. Ridgewater was unable to dig out of a nine-point hole, 45-36, at intermission. The Warriors (2-5) were off line from 3-point range, making just 5 of 22 (23 percent). Forward Dante Bogard scored 20 points for the second game in a row.
New London native Aaron Barber shot his best round -- a one-under par 71 -- on Saturday, then withdrew form the PGA Tour Q-School at Winter Garden, Fla. Barber was four-over-par after four rounds with about 100 golfers between him a score that would have won him a Tour card for 2006. The six-day tournament concludes today.
Jon DeRock, Hamline freshman who played for Buffalo Lake-Hector last season, scored 22 points to lead the Pipers (1-1, 2-3) to a 81-75 victory over Carleton in Northfield on Saturday in MIAC basketball. DeRock sank 9-of-12 shots, pulled down nine rebounds and had six assists. The Pipers are under second-year coach Barry Wohler, a native of Bird Island.
GROVE CITY -- The dominant performance is just what would be expected of a wrestling juggernaut opening the season with a top three ranking. Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City, ranked third in Class A, reached eight finals and won four to run away with the trophy at the 38th Annual ACGC Classic Saturday. The Falcons finished with 208 points, 83 more than runner-up St. James at 125.
BENSON -- Hastings pulled away in the last two minutes to beat Benson 56-51 for the championship of the Benson Invitational on Saturday. MACCRAY beat Hancock 59-45 for third place. Down by eight late in the game, the Braves rallied to tie the score at 47-all with two minutes left. But the Raiders repelled the rally at the free throw line, where they were 20 of 31 for the night. Benson launched 23 treys. Nikki Linn (nine points) and Emily Jensen (16 points) each made three. Jensen also had nine assists and four steals.
CLARA CITY -- MACCRAY held Morris to nine first-half points en route to a 60-41 win in the season opener for both teams Saturday. The Tigers (0-1) struggled without starting guard Taylor Witt, who broke his elbow during the football season. The Wolverines (1-0) controlled the boards 32-22 with Matt Condon grabbing a game-high seven. Justin Koenen, Andrew Meyer and Matt Leese followed with six each. Condon also scored a game-high 14 points and had six steals.
