"We executed our offense better that we have in the past," said Ridge View coach Ken Slater. "We had an 11-point lead with three minutes to go and Woodbury Central was able to come back by making some big shots and playing good defense. We got a little flustered, but we were able to hold on to get the win."
Clayton and Nicole Snyder paced the Raptors to the win over MV-AO, each scoring 16 points, while Grundmeier tallied 12. Clayton and Grundmeier led Ridge View's rebounding with five boards apiece.
The winners cashed in 19-40 shots for a warm 48 percent, including a 5-7 effort for three-balls. They sank 7-14 free throws.
"We were able to hang on for the win thanks to good shooting from the field and a strong defensive effort in the second half," said Slater. "I'm proud of the girls effort."
