WASHINGTON, Pa. -- The Grove City College women's basketball team dropped a 69-50 decision at Washington & Jefferson Wednesday night in Presidents' Athletic Conference action at the Henry Memorial Center.

Grove City trailed 50-33 early in the second before charging back with a 13-2 blitz that slashed the lead to six. Sophomore guard Cayley McClean (Airville, Pa./Kennard-Dale) ignited the comeback with a jumper and freshman forward Mary McDonald (Slippery Rock, Pa./Portersville Christian) followed by going 4 for 4 at the foul line.

Senior guard Alicia Maust (Natrona Heights, Pa./Cheswick Christian) drilled a three-pointer to cut the lead to 52-42. Layups by freshman forward Kathryn Erbelding (Rochester, N.Y./Greece Olympia) and McDonald closed the run.

W&J (15-7, 10-5) countered by scoring 11 straight points, though, and reclaimed command of the game.

Junior forward Annie Wells (Waterville, Vt./Lamiolle) led Grove City (7-12, 6-9) with 13 points and McDonald added 11. Maust finished with nine points. Erbelding added eight points, six rebounds, five steals and four assists.
