Six M&O Teams to Play in Regional Semis

Eagles' Nest No

Place for Wildcats

In the opening round of the WIAA Division 5 playoffs, the eighth seeded Suring Eagles earned the right to host the ninth seeded Lena Wildcats Tuesday night.  The defensive battle came to a deadlock after the first 18 minutes, but in the second half the Eagles found their stride. A 19-19 halftime tie turned into a 51-33 victory for Suring thanks to a large second half run.

For the entire first half, both teams exchanged baskets back-and-forth.  Neither team scored any more than four straight points for the first 18 minutes of play.  Suring's Wylee VanBellinger opened the game's scoring with a bank shot from just inside the arc for the 2-0 Eagle lead.  Lena's Ally Demmith tied the game at 2-2 with two free throws.  Eagles Katie Stegeman and Jenna Reed started their big nights with layups to grab a 6-2 advantage.  Madysen Herald came off the bench and answered for Lena with back-to-back baskets and the Wildcats regained the lead, 8-7.  After another five-minute stretch of back-and-forth baskets that featured four lead changes, Brooke Peterson and Kaitlyn Hodkiewicz put in consecutive buckets for Lena to take a 16-13 lead.  Suring answered right back with four points of their own from Reed.  Reed then gave the Eagles a 19-17 lead with just under a minute left in the half, only for Herald to knot the game at 19-19 just before halftime.

"We were pretty pleased defensively.  The girls really play a good team defense.  They know their responsibilities, they can count on each other and it's pretty effective," said Suring Coach Shaun Wagner.

Out of the break, Suring came out with aggression.  VanBellinger knocked down the triple, Blake Seppel sank two free throws and Reed added another before Stegeman secured a rebound put-back for a 27-20 lead.  Lena's Kaylee Huberty cut the lead down with a short jumper, but Suring answered back with five straight points.  Sleeter hit a free throw and VanBellinger and Reed each scored a hoop, pushing the lead to 32-22.  Brooke Peterson made a layup and Demmith drilled her two shots at the charity stripe to trim the lead to 34-27 at the 8:53 mark. 

Suring iced the game with a 12-0 run over the next four minutes of game time that extended the lead to 46-27.  During the run, Seppel, Reed, and Courtney Heimerl all made baskets and Stegeman connected on two free throws.  The Eagles added five throws at the end of the game to reach the 51-33 final score.

"We talked about it during a time out at that exact juncture in the game, if we kept them off the line, rebound on the defensive end, they're going to struggle to score.  It was effective, the team pretty much stuck to that, we took less chances, we weren't trying to make steals, we were trying to protect that basket.  They were unable to score and it just turned into points for us," said Coach Wagner about the 12-0 run.

Jenna Reed paced the Eagle attack with 16 points, Katie Stegeman and Wylee VanBellinger each scored nine points, and Courtney Heimerl chipped in with seven.

When asked about the change between the first and second half, Coach Wagner said, "The biggest difference between the first and second half was that I felt like my girls were playing tentative in the first half.  In the second half, they were more willing to assert themselves, take some chances and take the open looks that the defense was offering."

Lena's Maddy Herald led the team with seven points, Brooke Peterson added six, and Ally Demmith, Kaylee Huberty and Kaitlyn Hodkiewicz each pitched in four.

Suring advances to round two to take on the one-seed Wausaukee Rangers Friday night in Wausaukee, Coach Wagner says they are excited about another chance at the Rangers, "We're going to go up there and give them our best shot.  The girls know we can play with them.  We look forward to the chance, we won this one, knew we got to play them and we look forward to it."



Crivitz Bags Regional

Win Over Spencer

The Crivitz Wolverine girls advanced to the second round of the WIAA State tournament Tuesday night by handedly defeating the Spencer Rockets 57-51.

It didn't take the aggressive and hard hitting Wolverines to build a large lead as Lexi Oyer struck at the 12 minute mark to give the Crivitz girls a 15-5 lead.

Sianna Guns hit next, racing to the hoop after stealing the ball from a Rocket attacker.

Spencer narrowed the lead with four consecutive free throw points before Taylor Bemis helped to extend the lead with a three point bucket for the 20-11 lead.

Guns posted another steal and score moments later while Bemis followed up with another three point bucket to push the Wolverines ahead 25-13.

Spencer's Lexi Baehr hit her first three to make it a 25-16.

With less than two minutes left in the half the Wolverines began to full court press the Rockets which caused a turnover that Morgan Vanlanen brought to the hoop for the 27-16 lead.

Emalee Johnsen scored the final points of the half off a put back making it 29-18.

Starting the second half was Bemis who hit on her fourth three point bucket of the evening.

Spencer's Baehr answered with two consecutive three pointers to narrowing the lead to 32-24.

Bemis wasn't done yet, hitting her fifth and final three of the night to raise the Wolverines tally to 35-24.

"We shot well," said Meyers. "Bemis came out and had one the best shooting games in the past few weeks. But we didn't get the ball in the post as much as I wanted to which hurt us. They kept pressuring us up top, but when it comes down to it, they get the job done."

Chloe Gruszynski, who experienced considerable success in the paint Tuesday night, drove through a packed lane for two more Wolverine point and was followed by teammate Talor Long on a behind the arc jumper to make it 39-27.

Over the next three minutes the Rockets took flight narrowing the Wolverines lead to 43-33 with just over nine minutes left in regulation.

"Our girls just get tentative,' said Meyers. "They play not to lose sometimes, and that isn't good. We need to think and keep the responses coming and know when to lay it on a team."

Guns cut into the rally with a couple well placed free throw shots and Johnsen extend the narrowing lead with an in close jumper to make it 49-37.

After three trips to the charity stripe the Rocket had shrunk that 12 point lead to a five point lead 49-44.

Desperately needing a little buffer, Crivitz's CeCe Johnsen hit from baseline to make it 51-44.

Guns helped to build that buffer with two free throw points. Oyer and Bemis both took trips to the free throw line in the final seconds, making all their shots to give Crivitz the 57-51 final readout.

Gruszsynski took top scoring honors for the Wolverines with 22 points and was followed by Bemis with 17. Emalee Johnsen recorded six.

Spencer was led by Baehr with 15 points and Liz Endreas with 12. Courtney Buss got 10 on the evening.

"We brought a win back to our gym during tournament time," said Meyers. "I look around this gym tonight and I see so many new faces. Last year this place was nearly empty. Now we have people from Wausaukee, Peshtigo, and people from the community that have never been to one of our games. We are changing the environment around here, giving this place a new atmosphere. We play for our community and I get excited when i see people who have nothing to do with the program coming to our games. Its just a a great thing for us."

I can't say enough great things about this group of young women. they've poured their hearts and souls into this season and it's paid off. Coach Ruleau has been a great asset for me this yaer. Having im and his knowledge of the game helped me become a better coach and the girls better players on both the JV and varsity levels."
