Cargal’s Hot Start Leads Sheridan past Gillette




Saturday night the Bruce Hoffman Golden Dome was rocking as the Sheridan College women's basketball team avenged their quadruple overtime loss to Gillette College earlier in the season with a 71-62 victory.


The Generals got off to a great start thanks to sophomore guard Brooke Cargal, a Gillette native, who went 4-4 from behind the arc in the first half. Cargal hit her first shot in the opening possession of the game to help the General's take a quick 3-0 lead and they would never look back. Sheridan was able to sustain a lead throughout the game with their largest margin being 16 points in the middle of the second quarter.


Gillette would make a strong run in the middle of the fourth quarter but the loss of two key players, center Toni-Ann Cameron at the end of the third quarter and point-guard Rickie Engesser in the middle of the fourth quarter, to foul trouble hurt the Pronghorns already depleted roster.



the free-throw line. Freshman Aloma Solovi (Salt Lake City, UT) also had a strong performance in her first start of the season, as she contributed 16 points and 3 assists to the General's efforts. Raelynn Keefer (Forsyth, MT) added to her already impressive resume this season, almost recording her first double-double with 13 points and nine rebounds.


The Generals are back on the road this Wednesday, Feb 21. They are headed to Casper to take on the nationally ranked T-Birds of Casper College at 5:30 PM followed by the men's match-up and 7:30 PM.
