The Columbia College women’s basketball team opened its season Monday night by beating Purdue-Calumet 74-51 in Hammond, Ind. Columbia College led the defending Chicagoland Conference champions by 13 at halftime and held on for an easy victory in the second half.

It was the seniors who led the No. 13 Cougars. Forward Mindy Mitchem led Columbia College on defense. She recorded 12 rebounds and six blocks. Four other seniors scored in double figures for the Cougars. Guard Tiffany Foote led the team with 18 points, and forward Charliss Ridley scored 15, followed by guard Lisa Kowalewski with 13 and forward Tilly Payne with 12.

The Cougars stay in the Chicago area for their second game tonight against Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbannais, Ill.

HIGH SCHOOL SOCCER: Hickman’s game against Smith-Cotton in the first round of the District 10 tournament was postponed Monday because of rain.

The game will be played at 5:30 p.m. today.

Monday’s other first round game between Camdenton and Jefferson City was also pushed back to today, meaning Rock Bridge will play in the semifinals against the winner on Wednesday. Thursday’s championship game was moved back to Friday.
