Girls hoops roundup: De Pere downs North, South rolls, Christian beats Lutheran in OT

By

Midway through the second quarter of Thursday night’s Fox River Classic Conference match-up, Sheboygan North’s girls basketball team was tied with the No. 1 team in the state at 15-15.

But De Pere proved why it’s the top-ranked team in Division 1 in Wisconsin, closing the half on a 10-0 run to seize control en route to a 45-35 win at North.

“They did a much better job getting to the free-throw line in the first half than we did,” North coach Eric Spielman said.

Indeed, the Redbirds shot 14 first-half free throws compared to zero for North (15-7, 9-7).

The Golden Raiders were able to get the line 13 times in the second half, but connected on only five.

“In the second half we did a better job of continuing to attack and going stronger to the basket,” Spielman said. “We got to the free-throw line, we just didn’t make ours.”

Kayla Dawson led De Pere (22-0, 16-0) with 16 points.

Connor Dlugopolski had 12 points for North, while CJ Usadel added 10. Mackenzie Wolf pulled down 11 rebounds and twin sister Madison added eight boards.

“Both teams, I thought, got the ball inside fairly well,” Spielman said.

Kimberlee Weimann scored 15 points, Molly Burkard had 11 and Erika Trumm added 10 more for South (8-14, 5-11 FRCC), which led 37-7 at halftime.

“We had a very good start. The eight seniors really came out and played a nice game for their last regular-season home game,” said South coach Tyler Thomas.

South, which had 17 steals on defense, hosts East (1-21, 1-16) again on Tuesday in the opening round of the WIAA Division 1 playoffs. South is the No. 8 seed, East the No. 9.

Sheboygan Falls 57, Kewaskum 47

Erica Duda had 13 points and Staci Hasler added 13 rebounds, and the rest of the Falcons roster helped accomplish a first-time feat in Sheboygan Falls girls basketball history Thursday.

The Falcons rushed out to a lopsided halftime lead and kept up enough pressure the rest of the way to claim their 14th Eastern Wisconsin Conference win of the season at home against Kewaskum.

The victory capped an undefeated campaign through the conference, the first time the team has ever finished perfect in its conference, coach Leroy Hamilton confirmed.

“It’s a great feat,” he said of the milestone. “I told the girls to enjoy it tonight, because tomorrow it doesn’t matter, because we’re 0-0.”

The Falcons capped their regular season with a 19-3 overall record and a 14-0 mark in the EWC. They’ve earned a first-round bye in the upcoming WIAA tournament.

Mallorie Kreis scored a game-high 18 points, and Marisa Stahl added 17 for Kewaskum (6-16, 3-11 EWC).

But the Indians didn’t get enough scoring from the rest of their players to keep up with the Falcons, who led 33-16 after two quarters.

“We got out early,” Hamilton said. “… And then the second quarter, we were able to pretty much take control of the game.”

Duda led Falls on offense, with Nicole Fenner pitching in 12 more points.

The Huskies led by five entering the final quarter, but the Warriors rallied to earn the road EWC win.
