MARYVILLE, Mo - The Northwest women kept it close, but senior Katrin Roenfeldt led the Western women past the Bearcats, 66-56. The win earns Missouri Western a ticket to the MIAA tournament in Kansas City next week. 

The Griffs were led in scoring by Roenfeldt who couldn't miss her patent step-back jump shot, scoring 18 points on the night. Two more Griffs were in double-figures, senior Brittany Atkins had 17 and senior Jessica Davies had 10.

The Bearcats were led in scoring by sophomore Jaelyn Haggard and junior Kendey Eaton who both score 18 points.
