Pilots Flight Report: Women’s Basketball - November 22 to 24

"I was very happy with how we competed in the second halves of both game two and three. It was nice to see different players contribute off the bench, which we will need more often down the stretch. I think there are areas that we need to work on, but we found success at times and were able to come home with a pair of wins." Joel Coursey

"This weekend we got to travel to Iowa and play a lot of basketball in a short period of time. This will always be my favorite trip because of the amount of ball I get to play. You find yourself having to push through many obstacles over a few days stretch. We started the weekend off by poorly executing but getting an easy win against Faith Baptist.
Next came Ozark Christian. We were dissatisfied from the day before and found ourselves delivering a much higher quality of basketball. Ozark led by double digits but we were able to cut that to a one point lead at halftime. Shooting well from the free throw line and shooting a high percentage in the second half, helped us pull off the 11 point win.
Grinnell was able to play a strong 40 minutes, while we outscored them in the second half, 20 minutes of good basketball isn't enough to beat an opponent of their quality. This is a team that we need to be close with, if we want to land at the NCCAA National Tournament." Katelin Thiessen
