DONALDSON, IN – The Lady Charger basketball team captured the win over Wilbur Wright College Saturday afternoon, claiming a 97-52 victory and moving their record to 6-2.

“Our focus was to get off to a really good start after the trouble we had in the first quarter of the Hope JV game. We were able to accomplish that due to our defensive play. We had six defensive stops in a row for the first six possessions, which set the tone for the game,” remarked head coach Tom Robbins on his team’s success.
