Porath leads New London over Green Bay East

NEW LONDON – Leah Porath passed a personal milestone in leading the New London girls’ basketball team to a 69-30 Bay Conference victory Thursday over Green Bay East.

Porath, a senior, scored 32 points and eclipsed the 1,000-point barrier for her career in New London’s victory.

The 5-foot-8 Porath is averaging 21.8 points and 7.3 rebounds per game this season and has played varsity all four years of her career, including as a starter since her sophomore year.

“I’m very happy for her,” New London coach Troy Krause said. “It’s well-deserved. From her freshman year to senior year has been phenomenal. She’s probably having the best year I’ve ever had from one player in scoring the basketball.”

Kate Christian added 12 points and Jessica Halvorson chipped in 11 for New London (7-6 overall, 4-2 Bay).
