The St. Louis Community College women’s basketball team has rebounded with three consecutive victories after sustaining its first loss of the season.

The Archers dropped an 87-74 decision to State Fair Community College on Nov. 11.

Currently, the Archers are 8-1 this season with an average win margin of 26 during their current three-game win streak. The momentum is increasing for the Archers as they prepare to have their next six games at home.

Since the program adopted a districtwide format in 2011-12, the Archers have never run into trouble playing at home, posting a 33-8 record. The Archers played their first home game this season Nov. 19 against McKendree University junior varsity and claimed a 73-59 win.

Three players reached double figures in scoring for the Archers, including Deborah Holcomb, who led all scorers with 25 points. Khalia Miller netted 11 points and Brandy Ward came off the bench to contribute 10 points. Miller also grabbed seven rebounds to lead the team.

Included in the current home stand are matchups against Jefferson College (5-0) on Dec. 3 and Mineral Area College (5-1) on Dec. 5.

With a high power offense, the Archers show no signs of slowing down. Leading the pack is Holcomb, a two-year starter who leads the team in scoring with an average of 23.8 points per game. Miller is next with an average of 12.6 points per contest. Ward has been the top contributor off the bench, chipping in 7.6 points per game.

The Archers are averaging 78.1 points per game.

The Archers will seek their fourth straight win when John Wood Community College (3-2) visits the Forest Park gymnasium at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 25.
