GROVE CITY, Pa. -- Senior guard Abby Moose (New Wilmington, Pa./Mercer) fired in 23 points Wednesday night, helping lead the Grove City College women's basketball team to a 74-63 win over Waynesburg in Presidents' Athletic Conference action at the Grove City College Arena.

Senior guard Jocelyn Kempema (Fort Atkinson, Wis./Edgewood) added 15 points and five rebounds while freshman forward Rachel McCoy (East Liverpool, Ohio/Beaver Local) posted 14 points, seven boards and four assists.
