Eagles Soar to 50-42 Win Over Wolverines

Issue Date: February 9, 2022

Area Girls Basketball

Suring Soars to 50-42

Win Over Crivitz


Crivitz fought their hearts out but couldn't overcome Christine Sleeter and Suring in a 50-42 loss on Friday.

Suring led 11-5 early, with Macyn Garrigan getting a putback layup to give her team the six-point lead. That would be the biggest lead of the first half.

Crivitz took a 17-15 lead on two free throws by Nilea Guns, and they would take a 19-17 lead into halftime.

Suring scored 33 points in the second half, however, propelled by Sleeter, who had 14 of her team-high 16 points in the second half.

She also had 19 rebounds, dominating the glass throughout the game. She's improved in all areas of her game, Suring coach Mitchell Woulf said, not just rebounding.

"Christina is a huge player for us, and she's matured a lot," Woulf said. "She's been dribbling confidently, she's been drawing fouls, she's been rebounding, she's been scoring a lot. She's been huge for us all season really."

Crivitz led 25-19 on a steal and score by Guns. With the lead 28-23, the Suring comeback began. The Eagles went on an 8-0 run and took a 31-28 lead on a bucket by Bunny Cramer.

Suring kept its foot on the gas offensively, but late in the game, the lead was just three, 42-39. Suring made its free throws to close the game, with MacKenzie Bailey making four of four in the final 20 seconds.

Bailey scored 12, including five of seven free throws, and Kate Mahoney and Cramer scored nine each.

It doesn't show up on the stat sheet, as she didn't score any points, but Woulf also credited Hailey Thomson for her ball pressure in the Suring press.

"We had to find a way to speed the game up, and we were going to do that with our press. The girls came through. Hailey Thomson came into the game, and that's kind of her role. We use her on that press because she's really good at ball pressure, and she was able to force some bad passes, force turnovers, and that's where we were able to get steals and scores," Woulf said. "We did a really great job of forcing turnovers and capitalization off of turnovers, that was huge. We're always going to come after teams, we're going to pressure the ball, and we're going to take away drives. That's the key to our defense."

Cilena Guns finished with 18 points on 7-10 shooting to try and push Crivitz over the line. Nilea Guns, McKenna Sellen, and Kylie Chilcote scored six apiece.

"We play 30 good minutes in a game, and that other six minutes, we just have to find a way to overcome that last six minutes wherever they fall. We're just not there yet. They're young," Crivitz coach Brett Meyers said. "I will always give them credit that they always play hard, and I'm feeling like we're getting deeper and deeper as the year goes on. Players that were less confident are now becoming more confident, and I'm happy for that. Despite a lot of turmoil, we're still getting better, it's just that other people are getting better too. It is what it is. We're trying."



16 Point Run Helps

Menominee Cruise to

Win Over Gladstone


The Menominee Maroons set the tone early for a big win over Gladstone on Thursday, scoring the first 16 points of the game in a 36-12 win.

Kennedy Olson scored seven of the first 11 points of the game. By halftime, the lead was 25-5, with Gladstone getting one basket in each of the first two quarters. That trend continued into the second half, as the Braves scored three points on one made field goal and one free throw in the third quarter and four points on one made field goal and one free throw in the fourth.

"We talked about coming in and being consistent, especially for the entire four quarters defensively, and if we're able to do that, I like our chances no matter the night, how our offense is going," Menominee coach Lucas Chouinard said. "I'm very proud of them, how we came out of the gates, held them scoreless. You couldn't ask for a better start tonight and we continued to put pressure on them the entire four quarters defensively."

Menominee scored eight points in the third quarter, and had a quiet fourth quarter, with three free throws by Hanna Drifka providing all of the Maroons' scoring.

Olson finished with a game-high 10 points. Drifka and Anna Nerat scored six apiece. The Maroon defense was what stuck out, however.

"I thought we did a great job. We've really been focusing on closing out on shooters and I thought we did a great job closing out on their wing players, not letting them get rhythm shots, forcing them to either dribble-drive or pass it to the next girl," Chouinard said. "I thought we did a tremendous job of that. We just need to continue doing that because we're going to face some great shooters coming up in the next couple weeks. It was a great night for us doing that."

Chouinard said if there's one place the Maroons could find some improvement, it's on the offensive end of the floor.

"We just have to work on better cuts, better screens, finding the open player," he said. "And as long as we're able to do that in practice and simulate that the best we can, I like our chances of doing that in a game as well."



Oconto Secures

Packerland Conference

Title With Win Over

GB NEW Lutheran


Oconto moved to 21-0 on the year with a dominant win over Green Bay NEW Lutheran on Tuesday to lock up sole ownership of the Packerland Conference title.

The Blue Devils are 14-0 in Packerland play. Second-place Peshtigo is 11-3 following a 48-42 loss to Kewaunee, and with just two more Packerland games, the best they can finish is 13-3 in conference play.

After securing the conference title, the Blue Devils now face their toughest stretch of the season in the final three games.

Oconto faces Bonduel (9-1 Central Wisconsin, 16-4 overall) on Feb. 11, Peshtigo (11-3 Packerland, 15-5 overall) on Feb. 14, and Sevastopol (8-4 Packerland, 15-5 overall) on Feb. 17 to end the season.

Oconto has scored 70 or more points in six of its last seven games. On Tuesday, it was Lianna Baxter again leading the way with 24 points. She made eight of 14 shots from the field, three of four 3-pointers, and 5-10 from the free throw line. She grabbed a staggering 17 rebounds, led the team with five assists, and swiped a team-high seven steals.

Leah Allan had a strong game, as she scored 18 points on 7-14 shooting, and Hannah Moe was 6-11 for 13 points, adding eight rebounds and four steals.

Addisyn Viestenz had nine points.

Loss to Kewaunee


The Peshtigo Bulldogs saw their hopes of capturing Oconto and the Packerland Conference title disappear Tuesday night when they took on the Kewaunee Strom who handed them a 48-42 loss.

Leading the way for the Bulldogs was Sydney Lund who shot her way to 20 points. Emma Gilligan got nine while Akira Smalls posted 5. Jaci Tonn also posted five points.

Mykenzie Uhlers lead Kewaunee with 16 points.

Three Lakes Too

Much for Florence

Florence was 16-55 from the field (29.1%). The Bobcats did make nine of their 20 3-pointers, led by Kamdan Johnson, who made five of nine 3-pointers and would finish with 17 points.

Isabella Millan scored 12 points on 4-19 shooting, and Leah Young scored six. Paige Uren added five.

Millan's eight rebounds and five assists both led the Bobcats.
