Whitewater’s long Rock Valley Conference winning streak came to an end Friday night when the Whippets were upended, 47-33, by Jefferson.

It snapped a 56-game conference winning streak for Whitewater (0-2), winners of four straight Rock Valley North Division titles.

“We made some nice improvements since our loss against Marshall, but (we’re) still not performing at the level we are capable of,” Whitewater coach Judy Harms said. “Although it’s been a rough start, we have an entire season ahead. Keeping that in mind, we need to stay positive, gain confidence, and strive to improve in all areas of the game.”

Olivia Ganser scored 13 points to lead Jefferson. Abby Grosinske, Kacie Carollo, and Miranda Reynolds each had eight points to lead the Whippets.
