Summer Gillespie added nine points and 13 rebounds for Saranac, while Kaitlyn Bowman contributed eight points, six rebounds and six steals.

“Saranac Lake is a much improved team,” Chiefs coach Tim Newell said. “They are a physical team and play a strong zone defense. We did a nice job with ball movement and Tori Trim caught fire in the first half to break the game open.

“I was very pleased with our rebounding. We had 22 offensive rebounds which gave us a lot of second-chance points.”
