The Clark College women’s basketball team needed a win in the worst way and Kayla Morgan of Aniak helped make it happen.

The 5-foot-9 freshman was inserted into the starting lineup and just missed a double-double as the Penguins snapped a nine-game losing streak with a 71-43 road win over Portland in the NWAC.

Clark (5-13) moved to 2-0 when Morgan starts.

Morgan, of Aniak High fame, scored nine points and ripped down a season-high eight rebounds in 23 minutes.

The 5-foot-9 freshman just missed her sixth double-figure scoring effort.
