The Westminster College women’s basketball team hit the road to California and Colorado, playing Adams State Friday and Fort Lewis Saturday. By the end of the weekend, junior Hunter Krebs hit a career record of 1,000 points scored.

The team started the weekend with a win, beating Adams State with a final score of 63-47.

The Griffins outscored the Grizzlies in the first half, setting up the score to be 31-14 by the end of the second quarter.

Junior Mariah Martin, junior Sarah McGinley and junior Kaylee Carlsen each added 10 points. Krebs ended the game with 991 career points, nearly reaching the 1,000 point plateau.

Heading into the Saturday game against Fort Lewis, Krebs scored 25 points — surpassing the 1,000 point career record. Krebs was also the lead scorer for the entire game.

Despite the milestone, the Griffins were defeated by Fort Lewis with an final score of 72-74 in overtime.

The Griffins led by 10 points at halftime and by eight heading into the final quarter, but Fort Lewis outscored Westminster 14-6 in the fourth quarter to force overtime.

With the game tied, the Skyhawks’ Sydney Candelaria scored with one second remaining in overtime to give Fort Lewis the victory.

After the weekend, the Griffins have an overall record of 17-4 and a Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference record of 12-3.

The team returns for two more road games, facing Colorado Mesa — the first-place team in the conference — Friday night. They’ll face Western Colorado, who is third in the conference, Saturday night.
