MORROW, GA -- Catawba held North Georgia under 50 points in claiming a 63-48 win over the Lady Saints in women’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at the Athletics and Fitness Center in the Chick-fil-A Southeast Region Challenge. The Catawba Indians even their record at 1-1, while North Georgia falls to 1-1.

Merritt pushed the lead to 26-16 on a jumper and May’s basketball at the buzzer of the half lifted Catawba to a 37-30 lead at the break.
The Lady Saints cut the margin to 39-34 early in the second half, but if was all Catawba from that point. Anna Dellapenta (Thomasville, NC/E. Davidson HS/Elon) canned a three-pointer to end a 16-4 run for a 55-38 advantage with 7:12 remaining. A Hicks jumper with 2:23 remaining gave the Lady Indians their largest lead at 61-42.
