Leading scorer for Waldorf was co-captain and senior Isabella Fraim who scored 16 points. Two of the teams non-starters scored their career highs with 10 points apiece.

Sophomore Emma Wallace scored her 10 points with some well taken outside shots.
Veteran players senior co-captain Carolyn Smalls and junior center Ajanai Miller-Randolph chipped-in with 6 points each. Both players played exceptional defense, controlling the boards and setting-up the offense. Junior starting guard Jaclyn Proctor continues to be the team’s assist leader, getting the ball inside with quality passing.
