Phoebe Lehman had two points, one rebound and one assist. Caroline Chubbuck scored two points.
“SVSM challenged us in many areas,” said Dalton’s head coach Katie Miller. “SVSM has the ability to beat you off the dribble, strong post play inside and the ability to shoot the 3 at a high percentage. We could have done a better job overall. We will get better from the loss.”
The Lady Dawgs defeated Northwestern 52-41 Dec. 1 on the road. Lunsford recorded 12 points, five rebounds and four assists. Geiser had a double-double with 11 points and 10 boards.

“This was a very good road league win for us,” said Miller. “We did a nice job putting together four quarters. Northwestern’s Caydence Scale and Josie Wright have the ability to score a lot of points at a quick rate. We did a good job keeping tabs on them. A great team win for us in league play.”
