Kaylie McCracken matched her career-high for the third time in four games on Friday night, scoring 24 points as the Whitman Blues returned to action after two weekends of postponements.

The former Arcata Tiger shot an impressive 10-of-13 from the floor and added seven rebounds, as the Blues fell 85-79 at Puget Sound.

McCracken added 12 points and seven rebounds the following night, as the D-III Whitman women got back to winning ways with a 61-53 victory.

McCracken has begun her junior season in spectacular fashion and is averaging 19.5 points and 7.3 rebounds for the 5-1 Blues.

Whitman hosts Whitworth on Friday and Saturday.

Also in action over the weekend, former St. Bernard’s standout Makenna Schoenhofer continued to play a key role for the D-I Seattle University women.

Schoenhofer had a big impact off the bench for the second straight weekend, scoring eight points in 11 minutes to help the Redhawks split a weekend doubleheader with the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley on Saturday night.

The former Crusader added three rebounds in the 71-64 overtime win.

The Seattle women, who lost 84-74 on Friday night, play two games at Grand Canyon University this weekend.
