Sarafina Arthur-Williams also had a strong showing, grabbing eight boards for the team. In the assists column, guard Jody Chickey led the team with four. While the Mount played hard, the final score was in favor of Maryland-Eastern Shore, 58-43.
In the Loyola match, the lady Mountaineers came closer to the victory, with a score of 56-49. Leading the points column was guard Katrice Dickson, with nine. Also on the stat sheet we Brewer with six boards, and Arthur-Williams with three assists. Next up, the Mount returns to Emmitsburg to battle Coppin State on Wednesday the 10th.
