WATERLOO, Ont. (November 13, 2016) - The Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks women’s basketball team held off a late push from the Algoma Thunderbirds as they improved to 3-0 following a 78-74 victory on Saturday afternoon.

Leading by eight points heading into the fourth quarter, the Hawks allowed the Thunderbirds back into the game and found themselves trailing by two points with just over a minute to play. However, a key three-point shot from Kaitlyn Schenck of Kitchener, Ont., restored Laurier’s lead and they never looked back as they moved into a tie for first place in the OUA with the Western Mustangs.

Schenck was the offensive catalyst for Laurier once again on this night as she poured in a career-high 23 points, highlighted by a very impressive 11-for-12 performance from the free throw line. She also added five assists, four rebounds and four steals in the victory.

Through three games this season, the fifth year psychology major currently finds herself fourth in conference scoring, averaging 17.7 points per game, and also sits in the Top 10 for both steals per game (3.3) and assists per game (4.0).

NICOLE MORRISON of Hamilton, Ont., and Irena Rynkiewicz of Mississauga, Ont., also hit double digits in scoring as Morrison finished with 15 points to go along with six rebounds, four assists and three steals while Rynkiewicz had 10 points and 11 rebounds.

For Algoma, the visitors were paced by Sydney Resch of Guelph, Ont., and Karissa Kajorinne of Thunder Bay, Ont., who each had 14 points in the loss.

The Hawks will look to extend their season-opening win streak to four games on Friday, November 18 when they travel to Kingston to take on the No. 7 Queen’s Gaels (2-0). Tipoff is set for 6 p.m.
