Saints Sweep Geoducks in Crosstown Exhibitions
Saint Martin’s 73, Evergreen 41 – Box Score
Megan Wiedeman made her senior season debut in style on Monday night scoring 19 points and pulling down 12 rebounds to lead Saint Martin’s to a 73-41 exhibition game win over Evergreen at Marcus Pavilion. Krista Stabler and Elin Johnansson each scored 17 points and the big three for the Saints combined to go 22-for-36 (61%) from the floor with 20 rebounds and seven assists.
Evergreen, with just two returning players from a team that set the program record for winning percentage, tied the record for most wins and hosted a playoff game for the first time, was led by Peninsula College transfer Gabi Fenumiai’s 13 points and ten rebounds from Uriah Thomas. The Geoducks shot just 29.6% from the field and turned the ball over 22 times.
The Saints head to Division I Eastern Washington on Friday night before returning home for another exhibition game against UPS next Tuesday. Meanwhile, Evergreen gets some time to get used to each other. They won’t play again until November 20th at Division I Seattle University.

But over the next six minutes, the Saints went on a 16-2 run capped off by a three pointer by Trey Ingram that gave them an 11 point lead at 67-56.
