ONTARIO, Ore — Walla Walla Community College rolled to its 13th straight win here Saturday in NWAACC East Region women’s basketball action.

The Warriors led Treasure Valley 40-25 after the first 20 minutes and cruised home with a 68-42 win.

“It’s a tough game as it is a long trip,” Warrior coach Bobbi Hazeltine said. “We have a lot of family in the area and you don’t know what focus they will come out with. For the most part, it was pretty good. It’s a good win on the road.”

Michelle Seitz led the Warriors’ effort, as she posted a game-high 13 points, grabbed a game-high 12 rebounds, and dished out seven assists.

“Michelle is always solid,” Hazeltine said. “She was really good tonight. Her rebounding and scoring were good and she dished off really well.”

The Warrior defense never let the Chukars into this one. The Chukars made 5-of-27 shots from the field in the second half.

The Warrior defense limited Treasure Valley to 15-of-55 (27 percent) shooting from the field for the game.

The Warriors dominated the glass, as WWCC, behind Seitz’ 12 boards, outrebounded the Chukars 56-37.

Caitlan Duncan added 11 to the Warrior attack, and MeShel Rad and Josie Jordan came off the bench to score eight and seven, respectively.

In all, 11 different Warriors broke into the scoring column.

“Caitlin had a really good second half,” Hazeltine said. “Josie came off the bench and gave us some good minutes.”

WWCC improves to 3-0 in East play, 14-1 overall, and hosts Yakima Valley Wednesday at the Dietrich Dome.
