Road woes continue for Tiger women

By The Hays Daily News

PITTSBURG -- The road continued to be unkind Saturday for the Fort Hays State University women's basketball team. The Tigers, ranked No. 24 in NCAA Division II, suffered their fourth road loss in MIAA play this season after a 74-60 setback against Pittsburg State University.

The Gorillas, after leading by five at halftime, were able to pull away in the second half after the Tigers had tied it at 45.

Pittsburg State went on a 14-2 run that began just under the 14-minute mark, and never looked back. Standout Lizzy Jeronimus ended with 16 points for the Gorillas.

The loss dropped the Tigers to 13-4 overall and 6-4 in the MIAA. Pittsburg State improved to 13-6 (6-3 in the MIAA). Junior center Kate Lehman led the Tigers with 17 points and seven rebounds, while Katelyn Edwards added 13 points. The Tigers finished 14 of 23 from the free throw line and just 22 of 65 (34 percent) from the field.

Fort Hays is off until Thursday when it plays host to perennial power and No. 2 ranked Emporia State University. Game time is 5:30 p.m. at Gross Memorial Coliseum.
