Coleman/Gillett/Suring Lead Girls Basketball All-Conference Selections

Issue Date: April 21, 2021

The 2020-2021 M&O girls basketball all-conference selections were made with three schools leading the balloting. Coleman, Gillett, and Suring all added four players to the prestigious list. Lena claimed three spots while Wausaukee, Niagara, and Oneida Nation notched two. Crivitz and St. Thomas Aquinas both had a single spot.

The Coleman Cougars saw sophomore Aubrey Bintz make the list while also adding seniors Cameron Compe, Michaela Zeitler, and Hailey Ziemer.

Coleman Coach Todd Olsen commented on his foursome of all-conference athletes.

"In any game, each one of these girls could be the leading scorer or lead in steals or rebounds. The great thing about these four student-athletes is they would tell you that the team comes first. Each one of them would credit their teammates' hard work for the great season and success we had as a team despite all of the adversity this year brought."

Coach Olsen went on to talk about each of his all-conference selections. "Aubrey really improved from last year as a freshman in both offense and defense. She is a versatile player on offense that could play any position and led the team in assists. Defensively she led the team in steals and rebounds even though she often guarded the other team's best ball handler."

"Cameron reached the 1,000 point milestone for her high school career this season. Offensively she could score from behind the three-point line or she could attack the rim and shot over 37% from the three-point line for the season. Defensively, she was a great defender and worked very hard at that side of the game. Cameron was also a team captain and is the Class of 2021 Salutatorian."

"Michaela is a great athlete. She used her athletic ability and quickness to get to the rim often and was second on the team in assists. Defensively she was second on the team in steals and she led the team in blocked shots. Michaela had some very impactful plays during big games."

"Hailey really worked hard to improve her game from last season. She could score at all three levels, the three-point, mid-range, and at the rim. She ran the offense and led the team in scoring. Defensively Hailey was tough, she usually guarded the other team's tallest player despite giving up a few inches in height. She was also a team captain."

The Gillett crew was composed of sophomore Carliegh Kaczmarek, junior Macy Franti, and seniors Aubrey DeBauch and Karissa Schaal.

Gillett head coach Justin Daul had this to say about his quartet of all-conference players.

"What Aubrey has done throughout her career will last in Gillett for a long time. She is the all-time girls leading scorer and only player, boys or girls, to be over 1000 in points and rebounds! Undoubtedly would have been the conference player of the year if we would have gone that route! Aubrey is a Division 5 WBCA all-star game selection, and valedictorian of the 2021 class, and the list of accomplishments goes on and on but she's just truly is a great person and a joy to be around!"

Coach Daul had this to say about his other senior standout, "We asked Karissa to do so many different things this year, that she selflessly did for the betterment of the team! Karissa might be one of the best pure athletes I've ever personally coached. She did so many things well but her specialty was defense and being a disrupter. Karissa is special on the defensive end and took the challenge head-on every night of getting the other team's best assignments regardless of position!"

Daul had this to say about his returning all-conference selections. "Macy really came into her own this year finding her niche as the third scorer, a jitterbug that plays bigger than the program will tell you. She really took steps in leadership and knowledge of how we are running things on the court. Macy is a dependable kid that gives you her best and wears the game on her sleeve! Love her competitive nature!"

"Carleigh was our wildcard this year" Coach Daul wondered if Kaczmarek could come onto the team as a sophomore and find her place. "At the start of the season I think it was a struggle early on but man when she started getting comfortable and commanding the team as a point guard should she was fun to watch! I can promise you this, there is not one kid in northeastern Wisconsin that works harder than Carleigh. She is a coach's dream when it comes to working ethic! I'm excited to see her take major steps in her next two years!"

Suring's four selections are junior Kate Mahoney and Seniors Kelsey Smith, Kylee Stelzer, and Paige Krueger.

Suring head coach Mitch Woulf couldn't say enough about the cabler of his team, "This was a very good season for us. While our conference decided they were not going to formally recognize conference champions, it was definitely gratifying that we finished with the best record in the conference, despite being projected to finish 6th by wissports. That along with winning a regional, and winning more games than any Suring girls team in school history contributed to a very successful season"

Woulf went on to describe the talent that was packed into his roster, "Kylee was a tremendous gamer and player. She has meant so much to this program and the future of this program. This whole year, she has been our main ball-handler, a knock-down three-point shooter, and physically strong defender. Also, Kylee is the only Suring girls basketball player to hit the 1000 points milestone."

"Paige was constantly matched up with talented post players who had several inches on her, but that didn't matter. It was nearly impossible to score in the half-court against Paige this season as her strength, instincts, and her high motor was always a huge advantage for us. We believe she wins defensive player of the year if they gave out that award this year. Her offense also came through for us in huge situations. Her 26 point performance in a come from behind win against Coleman was definitely memorable," said Woulf

"Kelsey really embraced rebounding and believed that she could get every rebound that was available. She was a huge reason why despite being smaller than the majority of the teams we played, we usually would outrebound our opponent. Her heart and hustle led to her being amongst state leaders in offensive rebounds. Kelsey was also versatile for us on defense sometimes having to cover guards," Woulf continued.

"Kate was a lights-out shooter for us in conference play this year and a very versatile defender. Kate also has a very high basketball IQ which not only helped her get opportunities to score but also helped her teammates as well. We lose three very good players to graduation, but are in very good hands with Kate stepping up into more of a scoring role next year."

Lena showed well in this year's polling with three of their Wildcats added to the selections. They were sophomores Chaela Rabas and Natalie McNurlen and senior Kennedy Marquardt.

Lena coach Tim Goldschmidt credited Marquardt, NcNurlen, and Rabas with "carrying the team" throughout the season each averaging over nine points per game.

"Kennedy was our most consistent player and made great strides year after year having a very good final season. She is probably the most aggressive player I have coached. She always hustled and played the game to her fullest," Goldschmidt continued. "Natalie has improved tremendously after playing as a freshman last year. She has good length and plays the game with high intensity. She is our ball-handler and has expanded her game to be able to score going to the basket, she shot the three well and shot a very high percentage from the free-throw line." "Chaela is the type of player a coach dreams of when it comes to knowledge of the game. She understands the game to its fullest and uses it as an advantage. She has progressed over her two years as our most versatile player. She is that player on the press that is able to read what the opposing team is going to do and intercept that pass for a turnover. She has progressed to being our back up point guard which adds to our being able to change things up."

Wausaukee Coach Dave Messar had this to say about the 2021 season and his two All-Conference selections.

"We were very privileged to have our season with all that went on this year. I'm very thankful for the opportunity to have two players receive All-Conference awards. Autumn Schroeder and Rachel Schlies are very active within the school system and in the community. Any team would be lucky to have both of these girls for what they bring on and off the court," said Messar.

"Autumn is a post player that improved every week of her junior season. She is a great defender and rebounds well by using the perfect fundamental boxing out technique. Her offense also got better and she became a scorer as the season progressed. She is a very dedicated, hard-working player who always encouraged her teammates in a positive manner. I am very happy to have her back again for her senior year and her role on our team can be expanded for additional growth and prosperity."

"Rachel came into this year as our only returning starter as a sophomore. She has a tremendous work ethic and a desire to achieve team success. She had to do a little of everything for our team and stepped up to any challenge that she was asked to do. She was our leading rebounder, scorer, and one of our best defenders. She had to handle the ball a lot as well. I think Rachel established herself as an elite player in the M&O Conference with the luxury of 2 more years to refine her basketball skills. She is a very driven athlete and she will be asked again for her team leadership as well."

Niagara also had two names placed onto the prestigious list with sophomore Josie Rock and Senior Alyssa Cretton.

"Alyssa is a four-year varsity player. She leads our team, and the conference, in scoring average this season at 17.1 points per game. She averaged over six rebounds and three steals a game. She was a player other teams game planned to stop," said Niagara head coach Karl Lamoreaux. "Alyssa had a special athletic career at Niagara in multiple sports. She will play college basketball at Bay College."

Lamoreaux continued, "Josie was our second-leading scorer and had the fourth-highest average in the conference at 14.4 PPG. She lead our team with 52 made three-point shots. Josie also leads our team in assists and steals. I look forward to coaching her two more seasons and watching her develop even more."

For Crivitz, there was a lone selection in senior Riley Mueller. "Riley led in all categories for our team," said Crivitz head coach Brett Meyers. "She played as hard as she could game in and game out. Without her, our season likely would have turned out different. Her energy and defense will be missed. Overall Riley was a great player to coach and have part of our program."

St. Thomas claimed Livia Benson as their one and only selection. STAA Head Coach, Cindy Powers, said this about Benson. "Livia was a four-year player for St. Thomas and team captain. She is a complete team player and it was a pleasure to have coached such a fine young lady. Livia will go very far in life with whatever path she chooses to pursue."

Oneida Nations two were junior Raenna Ackley and senior M'Kenzey Ackley.

This season there was no player of the year or first team/second selections. Due to that fact, there are no photos.
