Ramstein still unbeaten after rolling to easy win over Patch
Unbeaten Ramstein posted its sixth straight double-digit victory Saturday, completing a weekend sweep of visiting Patch 41-20.
The victory, fueled by 12 rebounds from Crystal Richardson and eight assists from Sierra Stayberg, boosted the Lady Royals’ overall record to 10-0 and their Division I mark to 3-0.
