The Foresters started their season off with big accomplishments.

As of November 21, HU has seen tremendous success thus far in Forester basketball this season. Women’s basketball certainly started the season strong, currently holding an 8-1 record while being undefeated at home. The lady Foresters have managed to hold a 5-game winning streak, collecting several achievements and recognition along the way.

The team cruised to a 81-36 upset against Holy Cross in early November, which is the largest margin of victory the girls have seen since 2016. Head coach Lori Culler received her 600th career win against IU Southeast on home turf mid-November, which puts her at the top of the NAIA as the most wins held by an active coach in all of division II. 

The accomplishments don’t end there, though. HU’s own senior, #12 Sarah Fryman, earned not one but two “Player of the Week” awards from the Crossroads League within just the month of November. The forward averages 24 points per outing, as well as 5 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 3 steals. Fryman also picked up a spot on the All-Classic team to add to her repertoire.

Moving forward in the season, the female Foresters will begin their conference play promptly and continue to fight for a chance to compete in tournament ball.
