Julianna Wadsworth’s 15-foot jumper with just 0:03 left lifted third-seeded Waubonsee Community College to a 57-55 victory over fourth-seeded South Suburban College in the Region IV Division II District L Championship game. Wadsworth’s clutch basket sends the Chiefs (26-7) to the NJCAA Division II National Tournament for the second straight year. Unranked Waubonsee will begin play in the 16-team, double-elimination tournament at Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, Kansas against a yet-to-be-determined opponent on March 15. The title win extended the Chiefs winning streak to 18 games as Coach Jim Sury’s crew also established a new Waubonsee single-season mark for wins with their 26th victory. Jenae Rowe led Waubonsee with a double-double, scoring 19 points and grabbing 10 rebounds to go along with five steals. Wadsworth added 15 points, seven boards, four assists and three steals. Libby Love chipped in with 10 points, Elizabeth Skaggs tallied nine points and snagged eight rebounds, and Coriesha Bailey contributed six assists and five rebounds.
