NORTHHAMPTON, Mass. — Former Woodinville High School Lady Falcon Elle Jo Whalen recorded a double-double 20 points and 15 rebounds to lead Smith College to a hard-fought 70-56 victory over two-time defending champion MIT, on Sunday March 1.
“It’s a great feeling,” Coach Lynne Hersey told the Daily Hampshire Gazette. “I’m just so proud of our team, our players, they really dedicated themselves throughout the last five months trying to be the best version of Smith basketball we could be.
“LJ has been our leader from day one and I’m really excited for her that she was able to have such a monstrous game. Her leadership is what has helped this group get to this point.”
