Denver, Colo.: (By Dylan Docker) Seniors Kari Ameling and Bri Simbeck took the Regis Fieldhouse court for the last time Saturday night against Chadron State. Following a pre-game ceremony honoring the two seniors, the Rangers (10-15, 8-11 RMAC) took care of business with an 81-72 win over the Eagles (8-15, 8-11 RMAC).
The Rangers took immediate control in the first half with four early points from Ameling. Sophomore forward Tae'lor Purdy also provided a spark for the Regis offense, allowing the home team to open up a nine-point lead with 7:11 to play.
If Ameling was feeling the emotions of Senior Night, she certainly didn't let it show. The senior post from Greeley, Colorado picked up seven total rebounds to lead the team and scored 13 points.
