BRYN MAWR, Md. – Kim Acton (Severna Park, Md./Severna Park) netted a career-high 15 points to lead McDaniel to a 57-32 victory over Bryn Mawr in Centennial Conference (CC) women's basketball action on Saturday.

Nicolette Parmese led the Owls (0-9, 0-6 CC) with 12 points.

Two Rachael Rybak (Reisterstown, Md./Franklin) baskets and an Acton jumper staked McDaniel to a 6-0 lead in the first 2:40 of the game.

Parmese and Jackie Handy closed the deficit to 6-4 just 1:28 later before a Thompson basket and Acton 3-pointer pushed the lead to seven with 14:24 on the clock.
