The Lady Chargers lost the first game against Parkland Community College ended 89-35 and fell in the second game against the Northwestern University club team 54-41.
Taylor Pope led the way with 16 rebounds and eight points followed by Knox alum Hope Wagner’s nine rebounds and 13 points as the Chargers struggled to convert from the field in the opener.
