Orange’s Brenna Mehl and Samantha George talk senior night win

Updated: February 14, 2020

As usual, the Orange women’s basketball team was short handed on Friday night. This time, it was on Senior Night against Northern Durham. Despite some early offensive problems, the Lady Panthers defeated Northern 45-36 at Panther Gymnasium. Orange trailed 7-6 at the end of the first quarter, but Samantha George hit two key 3-pointers in the second quarter. George raced down the floor in the waning seconds of the third quarter to hit a lay-up at the buzzer. It was a special night for senior Brenna Mehl, who played her final game at Orange High. Mehl hit the first jump shot of the game. Brenna has a 4.6 grade point average and plans to study biomedical engineering at UNC or N.C. State. She has also been accepted at Notre Dame. The Orange women end the regular season 11-11, despite playing most of the year without sophomore Mary Moss Wirt, who was the only returning starter from last year. Orange will travel to Chapel Hill for the opening round of the Big 8 Conference Tournament on Tuesday night at 7.
