RICHMOND, Ind. – The Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College women’s basketball team moved to 2-2 on the year after falling to Earlham College on Wednesday, 103-83.
The Pomeroys had three players record double-digit scoring, with junior Desiree Irizarry leading the way with 19 points.

Parmer recorded a game-high eight assists, while freshman Jordan Lloyd grabbed a team-high four rebounds. Irizarry led the team in steals with three and also recorded one block.
The Pomeroys jumped out to a quick 6-0 lead to start the game, as Irizarry and senior Alaura McKemie made back-to-back 3-pointers. It would be SMWC’s largest lead of the game.

The United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) is a national organization that exists to provide quality athletic competition on a regional and national level. The USCAA focuses specifically on smaller institutions of higher learning and their student-athletes. The association believes that all athletes and programs deserve the same national opportunities as larger institutions. SMWC is an organization that can provide those opportunities.
SMWC's teams are known as the "Pomeroys." Their name was chosen in memory of alumna and faculty member Sister Mary Joseph Pomeroy, a Sister of Providence, who was a great advocate of athletics and physical fitness. The name "Pomeroy" is not so much a thing, but a spirit of athletic excellence and sportsmanship.
