Follow Christ, Lead the Way

CIRCLEVILLE, OH - One day prior to taking their team into the River States Conference championship against Indiana University Southeast, Staci Pertuset (1st Team) and Rachel Gillum (2nd Team) each were named All-RSC members on Monday afternoon. The nominations came from each head coach around the conference.

 

Pertuset has put an exclamation point on her career at OCU, averaging mindboggling numbers of 20.8 PPG, 8.2 RPG, and 4.4 APG. She also currently ranks #1 in NAIA DII for steals (153) and steals per game (5.1). On February 8th, Pertuset set a new career high with 40 points against the University of Rio Grande.

 

As Pertuset sets her sights on graduating this spring, a new face has emerged as a leader of the Lady Trailblazers. Averaging 15.9 PPG and 11.0 RPG, Rachel Gillum quickly asserted herself as a key role player in OCU's starting lineup. Gillum currently ranks in the top ten for offensive rebounds per game in NAIA DII.

 

Ohio Christian will now rely on two of their stars to punch their first ever ticket to the NAIA DII National Tournament, as the Lady Trailblazers will face the Grenadiers on Tuesday evening in the championship game.
