Lincoln's Hackmann named HTR Media Player of the Year


It was quite the productive year for Manitowoc Lincoln’s Kali Hackmann.

In addition to reaching the 1,000-point plateau en route to a first-team All-Fox River Classic Conference selection, the Lincoln standout signed her national letter of intent to continue her basketball career at Winona State University in mid-November.

In her final season with the Ships, Hackmann — this year’s HTR Media Girls Basketball Player of the Year — became even more a student of the game Lincoln coach Jamie Ullman said.

“Kali’s always been smart when it comes to knowing what’s going on on the court,” Ullman said. “She just took it a step further this season at analyzing strategy and the gameplan.”

In addition to scoring 12.5 points per game, Hackmann handled most the dirty work inside the paint in one of the state’s toughest conferences while leading Lincoln to a No. 5 seed in the WIAA Girls State Basketball Division 1 Tournament.
