The Lady Eagles went 1-2 over the weeked in a trip north to Casper, Wyo. CEU beat Colby 56-54, then dropped one to Miles Community College 67-61. They finalized things with another loss to Casper 73-61.

The weekend sweep started off well as the Lady Eagles started off with a game against Colby CC on Thursday Nov. 13. CEU jumped out strong and were up 33-24 by the half. Colby took control in the second half, but the Eagles held on for the two point win in the end.

Kaylie Robinson was the team leader with 11 points and 16 rebounds. She was the only Eagle in double figures on the night.

It was Friday that saw the weekend take a turn to the worse. CEU founf themselves down 13 by the half. The Eagles shot just over 24 percent in the first half. They came out from the break, but could not hit their shots any better. They did out play Miles in the second period 33-26, but the hole in the first half was too great and the Eagles lost the game by six.

Kaylie Robinson was on fire on the boards as she pulled in a record 22 rebounds. She was equally as dangerous on the offensive boards as the defensive end. Robinson was also the leading scorer for the Eagles with 12. Savana Gines added 10 points in the losing cause. Gines went three for three from the line.

On Saturday, Nov. 15, the Casper game was within reach. Coach Dave Paur summed it up, "We lost to Casper, a very good team, 76-61. With a minute left in the game it was 65-61. We played well against a good team, but missed too many free throws."

In the second half of the game CEU could only hit 47 percent from the line while Casper was on an 80 percent tear. CEU still struggled with their shooting with a 29% effort. Megan Garvin was the high scorer for the Eagles with nine, all were from beyond the three point arc. She hit 3-4 from downtown. Veronica Siqueiros hit eight points. The Eagle bench outscored Casper 37-21 in the effort but it wasn't enough.

This weekend will be a great chance to see the Lady Eagles as they hone their skills against an all-star team. Game time will be at 3:00 on Saturday afternoon at the BDAC.
