Lady Jays establish two new records in lopsided win

It was a record-setting night for the Minnesota West Lady Jays on Wednesday as the nation’s third-ranked team rolled to a 115-46 triumph over Ridgewater at the Center for Health and Wellness in Worthington.

Dasia Potter’s 3-pointer with roughly 10 seconds left allowed the Lady Jays to shatter the team’s previous record of 114. Additionally, by picking up their 26th win of the year, the Jays set a new team record for most wins of the season. Ironically, both of the old marks were held by the 1991-1992 Minnesota West women’s team, of which current head coach Rosalie Hayenga-Hostikka was a member.

The Lady Jays were unquestionably way too much for Ridgewater, which has won just once this winter. Minnesota West led 30-11 after one quarter and its lead continued to grow the rest of the way. The Jays shot 59 percent from the floor as a team and got a team-best 26 points from Olivia Hayenga, who also had 11 rebounds, eight assists and eight steals.

Tia Murray added 24 points and three blocked shots for Minnesota West, while Dannyn Peterson contributed 21 points and nine rebounds. Madisyn Huisman chipped in with 12 points and Dasia Potter had 11.

In the men’s game, the Bluejays opened the game with an 11-0 run but wound up falling 96-61 to Ridgewater. The Warriors outscored the Jays 60-44 in the second half after trailing by one at the half.

Elijah Williams had 29 points for Minnesota West, now 5-20 overall. Bie Ruei had 18 points and Sam Daho 11.
