Gatson’s team advances
Van-Far graduate and current Wesminster College freshman Kasey Gatson enjoyed a taste of the postseason last week when the Lady Blue Jays traveled to Indianola, Iowa to participate in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Women’s Basketball Division III Tournament. The Lady Blue Jays battled the No. 12 ranked Simpson College and lost 91-58 in the first round.
Gatson played 10 minutes and scored two points with two rebounds and one assist. In her first season, Gatson appeared in 20 games and scored 35 points. She also had 11 rebounds, seven assists, and four steals.
Before the tournament, the Lady Blue Jays took first place in the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SLIAC) and went on to win the SLIAC Tournament, earning them an automatic bid to the NCAA Division III Tournament.
Westminster College finished the 2012-13 regular season with a 15-10 overall record and a 14-2 SLIAC record.
