The Red Hawk women shook off a tough loss from a night earlier to defeat Luther College 67-64 Sunday.
The win came on day two of the La Crosse Thanksgiving Classic Tournament.
“It was a gut check for our players,” coach Julie Johnson said. “We followed through and showed character.”
Ripon led for most of the first half before Luther came back to take the lead briefly with seven minutes left in the period. The Red Hawks answered quickly, though, as Carissa Zuercher had a 3-point play which led to a 10-2 Ripon run.
