The Ranger College women's basketball team continued its impressive start to the 2019-20 season this past weekend with a sweep of its three games at the Coastal Bend Classic in Beeville.
Paige Granstaff helped RC pull off its biggest victory of the season in the first round, downing highly-touted Blinn College by a 71-70 margin on Thursday.
