The LCC women's basketball team had its first loss of spring semester, 63-54 to Jackson College on Jan 9.

The loss was the third conference game of the season, putting the Stars record in the MCCAA West at 0-3, and the overall record at 4-10.

At the moment, the Stars are on a three-game losing streak, but according to LCC Head Coach Layne Ingram, the Stars will rise this season.

Despite the loss, sophomore Jaylynn Williams put up 27 points for the Stars, and also led LCC with 13 rebounds.

Sophomore Jessica Taylor added 13 points for the Stars. Sophomore Jacqulyn Kolnitys paced LCC with four assists.

Ingram said that for the rest of the season, he will be focusing on moving players off the bench and changing up the lineup.

He also stated his disappointment in the performance over the recent game, but shared his goals and plans to improve moving forward.

"It's been sort of a pattern with this team, playing games has been a struggle," Ingram said. "It comes down to mental toughness, playing hard, not taking any plays off."

According to Ingram, one of the team's major struggles has been filling the roster, as five players have been lost to numerous factors, including injury and ineligibilities.

Ingram said new team members are currently being considered for the current season due to the lack of available players.

The next home game will be against Glen Oaks Community College on Saturday, Jan. 19. The action starts at 1 p.m. in the Gannon Gym. Spectators are welcome.
