The Kirkwood Classic was a time for the Kirkwood women’s  basketball team to show progress in the early season.  In their first game, the Eagles crushed Oakton Community College, 111-19. 

The Eagles tenacious defense and high-flying offense could not be contained. The players flew up and down the court with precision, not once losing focus on the defensive end. 

The ladies shot over 60 percent for the game while holding Oakton to less than 20 percent.

All members of the Eagles played at least eight minutes in the contest and each player scored. The Eagles were led in scoring by Caitlan Sudduth with 18 points, followed by five more players in double figures, including Deleya Harris with 15, Rylee Voss with 12, Mesha Wheatley with 11 and Amber Lemons and Madison Wood, each with 10.

Rebounds were led by Adie Oberman, Adriana Dampier and Wood, each with five. Leading in assists was Cyerra Hutchins and Wheatley with six each.

Cyerra Hutchins popped in 17 points on Nov. 21 as the sixth-ranked Kirkwood women's basketball team cruised to an 83-42 victory over Waubonsee in the final round of the Kirkwood Classic.

Deleyah Harris collected 13 points and six rebounds for Kirkwood. Arianna Dampier contributed 12 points and four steals.

During the Kirkwood Classic, the women had three wins and one loss. In addition to winning against Oakton and Waubonsee, the Eagles took a victory over Parkland College, 72-50. The women lost to Illinois Central College, 76-64.

So far this season, the lady Eagles’ only losses have been to top competition and highly- ranked programs and each game was close. The team had a one-point loss to State Fair Community College on Oct. 30, 53-52 and a seven-point loss to Moberly Area Community College on Oct. 31, 51-44. 

The Eagles are currently 6-3 after a 67-56 win against the South Australian Institute of Sports on Nov. 24. The women are poised to have a strong season, according to the current NJCAA rankings.
