Girls hoops roundup: North wins FRCC opener


Sheboygan North girls basketball coach Eric Spielman told his team earlier this season that he wanted to see how the squad would respond to some adversity.

The first test came Friday night at home against an inspired Green Bay Preble unit. It wasn’t always pretty, but the Golden Raiders persevered for a 34-26 victory to open the Fox River Classic Conference season.

North, the defending FRCC champion, trailed by as many as eight points in the second quarter and trailed 23-22 going into the fourth quarter. But the Raiders (3-0, 1-0) outscored the Hornets (1-1, 0-1) 12-3 in the final frame led by sophomore Kiara Dallmann and senior Madison Wolf.

Dallmann connected on both of North’s field goals in the fourth, and Wolf shot 5-of-6 from the free throw line to seal it.

As a team, North was only 10-of-25 from the line.

“Preble is a very good defensive team, and made it very difficult for us to get shots where we wanted to get them,” said Spielman.

“I told our girls, we’re going to see some adversity, how you respond is going to determine how the season is going to go,” he added. “I was happy with how we kept our composure.”

Wolf finished with 12 points, 13 rebounds and six blocks, all team highs. Jaelyn Walter added seven points.

GREEN BAY PREBLE — Harris 9, Winzenried 5, Samuels 2, Malcore 2, Giesler 8. 3-pt: Harris 1, Winzenried 1, Giesler 1. FT: 1-6. F: 18.

SHEBOYGAN NORTH — Walter 7, Barth 3, Mac. Wolf 2, Dallmann 4, Mad. Wolf 12, Gentine 6. 3-pt: Walter 1, Barth 1. FT: 10-25. F: 9.

Plymouth 51,New Holstein 45

Sophomore Gwen Streblow scored a game-high 18 points, as Plymouth built a big lead, then lost it before rallying and holding on in a back-and-forth Eastern Wisconsin Conference game at New Holstein.

The Panthers (3-0. 2-0 EWC) led 29-17 at halftime, but the Huskies stormed back and took the lead going into the fourth after a 21-8 run.

But Plymouth responded, retook the advantage then hit free throws down the stretch.

Lydia Rhude added 13 points and Kalei Herring had 11 for Plymouth; both players are also sophomores.

Karissa Preston scored 12 points, Taylor Doherty had 11 and Brady Faber added nine for New Holstein (0-5, 0-2).

PLYMOUTH — Herring 9, Pieper 4, Rhude 13, Mauk 4, Majerus 2, Sippel 1, Streblow 18. 3-pt: Herring 1, Streblow 1. FT: 9-16. F: 19. Fouled out: Pieper, Herring.

Waupun 57,Sheb. Falls 33

Leading 18-17 at halftime, Sheboygan Falls surrendered 20 points in each of the final two quarters and couldn’t muster more than 10 points in each of the final three quarters of the road loss.

“They outplayed us in the second half,” Sheboygan Falls coach LeRoy Hamilton said. “They got more physical and we didn’t. We didn’t match their intensity.”

Erika Van Engen was the only player to reach double figures in scoring for the Falcons (2-3, 1-1 EWC) with 18 points.

Waupun (6-0, 2-0 EWC) finished with a trio of 3-pointers while holding the visitors to zero.

SHEBOYGAN FALLS — Van Engen 18, Preder 4, Quasius 2, Benzchwal 4, Raeder 3, Meyer 2. 3-pt: None. FT: 9-14. F: 17.
