Waterville, Maine – The Colby College Women's Basketball team cruised to a win against cross town rival, Thomas College, with a 79-41 victory.

To start the second quarter, the Terriers came out looking to close the gap. A Kaylee Ravagli (8 points) 3 point field goal with 7:10 remaining helped Thomas cut the deficit to 27-6.
