QUICK NOTES:  After a disappointing end to 2010, the Lake Erie women open the new year with a return to conference play against fellow GLIAC newcomer Ohio Dominican... the Storm (2-8, 1-3 GLIAC) has dropped six straight, most recently a pair of closely contested setbacks at the Notre Dame Holiday Tournament.  Lake Erie lost to Shawnee State (68-66) and host Notre Dame (79-74)... junior Jen Caiola (Chagrin Falls) was named to the All-Tournament Team at NDC after averaging 16 points and 7 rebounds in the two games... classmate Stephanie Rogers (Mentor) had her third double-double of the year against Notre Dame with 19 points, a career-high 16 rebounds and also tied her career high with 8 blocked shots... LEC ranks sixth nationally in free throw shooting and eighth in blocked shots per game... Ohio Dominican fell to 2-10 and 1-6 in the GLIAC with its 61-57 overtime loss at home Thursday night to Hillsdale... the series between the two schools is tied 3-3, including a split of last year's two meetings. Each won on their home court, including an 84-53 Storm win on Jan. 30.
