The LBCC women’s team finished their weeks series 0-2 in both games, and look forward to sending their seniors off right.  The Roadrunners started the week off by losing to the Clackamas Cougars 69-58. The Cougars currently rank fourth in the southern division, and currently hold a 12-9 record overall with an 8-4 record in conference. LBCC then started their road trip, heading to Mt. Hood Community College to face the St. Bernards, who edged out a win against the Roadrunners, 72-60. Mt. Hood currently holds a 21-7 record overall, with a 12-3 record in conference. Both were quality opponents for the 11-14 Roadrunners, and both games were competitive.

Against the Cougars, Kalli Frieze scored 12 points for the Roadrunners offense, and complimented it with seven rebounds and two steals. LBCC was only able to shoot for less than 31 percent overall, but went 11-13 from the free throw line, taking advantage of the opportunity. During their match with the St. Bernards, Amyr Lowe provided help off of the bench, scoring a team high 16 points accompanied by four rebounds and three steals. The Roadrunners once again impressed at the free throw line, shooting for 79 percent.

Up next for the Roadrunners are the Lane Community College Titans. They stand at 23-2 overall on the year, with an undefeated 10-win record at home and complemented by an 11-1 record in conference play. Their record gives them the number one spot overall in the NWAC. The last time the two teams met, Lane took an 85-46 win on the road.
