The effects of the cold temperatures apparently lingered for Swenson's basketball team yesterday.
Just off the bus, the Lions took a full half to warm up inside Strawberry Mansion's gym, but once Mia Waring got hot, she stayed that way in a 51-47 nonleague road win.
Waring scored all 36 of her points in the second half to almost single-handedly account for the victory.
Waring scored 21 points in the fourth quarter for the Lions (1-0).
