RICHLAND - Waitsburg-Prescott's girls capped off an undefeated regular season here Saturday night with a 53-36 triumph over Southeast 2B League rival Liberty Christian.

"It was a great win for us," said W-P coach Jerry Baker, whose team went 12-0 in league and will enter the postseason 19-0 overall. "It's been three or four years since we've won over here."

Megan Withers and Ronnie Hulce led Waitsburg-Prescott with 12 points apiece. Genesis Pearson and Dionna Baker were next with eight points each.

W-P led 17-10 after one quarter and maintained the lead throughout. The Patriots got as close as six in the second half, according to Baker, but went no further on the comeback trail.

"The girls came out and played hard. They started off strong," Baker said. "I give them all the credit in the world. They worked their butts off. It (the successful season) was not handed to them. They can look back and be proud. I knew we'd be competitive, but I didn't think we'd run the table. Our league is tough."

W-P's next game is a district tournament encounter on Tuesday at 6 p.m. against either Dayton or Liberty Christian. The Bulldogs and Patriots square off on Monday.

"We'll start 0-and-0 next week," Baker said of the upcoming postseason. "We've got to take care of business next week."
