Area Girls' Basketball

M&O Teams Begin Conference Play

Great Second Half Propels

Wolverines Past Badgers


The Crivitz Wolverines hosted the Niagara Badgers for area girls basketball action last Tuesday evening, coming away with the home court win 50-38.

Niagara went up 13-9 early in the first half but were quickly met by the the Wolverines when Emalee Johnsen bagged a two point bucket for the 14-13 lead.

Jasmine Racine helped to bring the Badgers back to the lead 17-14.

With five minutes left in the first, Crivitz's Chloe Gruszynski went off. She drew a foul and made her free throw for a 19-20 deficit then scored on a breakaway to give the Wolverines 21. A short while later Gruzynski worked her way in-between a Badger pass which she stole and brought home to make it 23-22.

At the half the game was knotted up 26-26. That tie did not exist for long as the Crivitz girls blasted their way to 24 second half points while holding the Badgers to just 12.

Sianna Guns and Gruszynski added eight points apiece in the dominate second half performance.

Gruszynski led all scorers with 19 points while teammate Sianna Guns chipped in 8 for the Wolverines.

Niagara was led by Sarah Nawn with 10 points. Madeline West recorded eight.



Lena Lunges into

the M&O Season


After a long wait for their first M&O conference win last season, the Lena Wildcats wasted no time securing a win for the 2016-17 season. When Coleman traveled to Lena Tuesday evening, the youthful Wildcats showed the potential they have.

Brooke Peterson, one of two Wildcats seniors, secured a rebound and scored a basket underneath as Lena jumped out to a 18-8 lead forcing a Coleman timeout. Out of the timeout, the Cougars went on a 5-0 run thanks, in part, to back-to-back baskets from Ashlee Mayer, trimming the lead to 22-15.

Lena's Ally Demmith's rebound and put back increased the Wildcat lead to 26-17 at the 2:35 mark in the first half. Both teams traded free throws until halftime when Lena grabbed a 29-19 lead at the break.

"She's a special talent. She understands the game of basketball so much and has so much natural ability. She's a special athlete and can dominate a game when she wants to," Lena Coach Tim Goldschmidt said of Demmith.

Coleman came out of the half ready to play. After a three-point play from Demmith that extended the lead to 32-19, the Cougars responded with a 7-0 that included and basket and a foul from Mayer. The pressure of the Wildcat defense forced two quick turnovers that turned into easy baskets for Demmith and her teammate Maddy Herald, pushing the lead back to 37-26.

"That's our game plan is to put pressure on the other team. We're twelve deep, we have twelve returning letter winners. We only have two seniors so we're young, and our philosophy is to run a lot, use our depth, and wear the other teams down," Goldschmidt said of their pressure defense.

Another Mayer basket underneath the hoop brought Coleman to as close as they would come the rest of the game, 37-28. From there, Lena used a 10-0 run, capped off by a three-point play from Brianna Sylvester, to obtain a 47-28 lead with 5:45 remaining. The Wildcats coasted the final five minutes of the game to a 53-39 victory.

Ally Demmith led Lena with 16 points, while Brianna Slyvester added 10. Maddy Herald and Brooke Peterson each pitched in with seven points.

Coleman's Ashlee Mayer led all scorers with 22 points. Marianna Meissner recorded five points for the Cougars and Maria Nowak and Clara Yoap each had four.

When asked about the youthful team, Coach Goldschmidt says they're a determined group, "We kind of bit the bullet last year and let the young girls play JV. I thought it was really important for them to establish a winning record on JV. They all got time on varsity where we played a lot of girls and I thought it was good for them to get that experience as well. I give the girls a lot of credit, they worked very hard over the summer and it's paying off."

Tigers Fly High

Over Eagles

The Suring Eagles played host to the Gillett Tigers Tuesday evening in their M&O conference openers. Gillett jumped out to a 27-21 lead at halftime before holding Suring to just 13 points in the second half, winning the matchup 49-34.

Two three pointers from Gillett's Taylor Yonker helped lead to 12 first half points and a six-point halftime lead. Yonker kept up the pressure in the second half with nine more points to a game-high 21 points. Willow Pecha added nine for the Tigers and Erin Balthazor had seven.

Greta Sleeter recorded 11 points to lead the Eagles, while Katie Stegeman pitched in with six. Blake Seppel, Courtney Heimerl, and Wylee VanBellinger each had five points

Wausaukee Brings

the Thunder on Oneida

Madelyn Schlies' 13 first-half points helped the Rangers to their 28-22 advantage at halftime. In the second half, seven different Wausaukee players scored within two to five points as the balanced attack helped the Rangers win the matchup.

Madelyn Schlies finished with 17 points to paced the Rangers and Kaelyn Schlies scored eight points. Maddison Renikow chipped in with seven points and Sam Zlomaniec had six.

Elcho's Kenzie Novak was game one's top scorer with 21 points off six two pointers and nine free throws. Brianna Sylvester led the Wildcats with 15 points off five twos and five successful free throws.

Three Lakes entered the winning bracket with a 76-37 shellacking of Sevastopol.
