Bonds and Toole Record Double-Doubles, but Lady Hawks Fall to Salem, 69-61

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.—Senior Lori Bonds and sophomore Whitney Toole each recorded their first respective double-double of the season, but Kelsey Rector scored a season-high 27 points for Salem, as the Huntingdon women’s basketball team fell to the Great South Athletic Conference newcomer, 69-61, on Monday.

Bonds finished with a season-high 20 points and pulled down 11 rebounds, while Toole recorded 11 points and 11 boards for the Lady Hawks (2-14, 1-6 GSAC).

Huntingdon raced out to a 38-30 halftime lead, but a cold-shooting second half proved to be the difference. In the second period, the Lady Hawks converted just 8-of-34 shots, while the Spirits (7-7, 4-4 GSAC) opened the half with an 18-4 run in the opening nine minutes to take the lead for good.

The Lady Hawks closed the gap to just two points, 63-61, on a pair of free throws by Toole, but Salem answered with the final six points of the contest to provide the final margin.

Senior Kayla Schuran also finished in double figures for Huntingdon, posting 12 points and nine rebounds.

Along with Rector, Sarah Smith finished with 12 points for Salem, while Michala Michaux added four points, five rebounds and a game-high nine assists.

Huntingdon will look to rebound on Wednesday, when it hosts Covenant at 5 p.m.
