Cardinal Newman’s Hannah Dobbs scored 13 points and helped the homestanding Lady Cardinals grind out a 45-41 win over a determined Heathwood Hall squad Tuesday, February 10.

Mya Parter seemingly scored at will for the Lady Highlanders driving to the basket time after time eventually racking up a game-high 21 points. She scored six in the first quarter alone to guide Heathwood to a 12-10 lead.

Dobbs scored on a fast break at the 6:30 mark of the second quarter, and Mary Emma Dayhuff got a layup to give the Lady Cardinals their first lead of the game. Parter then put Heathwood back on top at 15-14 with a conventional 3-point play. Dobbs answered with a drive, but Rachel Whittaker got fouled as she downed a layup and made the subsequent free throw to give the Lady Highlanders an 18-16 advantage. Parter then led a 6-2 run with four more points, and Heathwood led 24-18 at halftime.

After Whittaker’s driving basket with just under three minutes remaining in the third, the Lady Highlanders had built a 28-23 cushion, but Regan Fosmire got a steal and a layup to start a 12-1 Cardinal Newman run. Back from injury, Madeline Schimmoeller came off the bench to convert on a conventional 3-point play. Fosmire drained two more layups, and Dobbs added a free throw and a jumper.
