WIAA Girls Basketball Roundup: Sheboygan Falls rallies in victory

By

The Falcons got rid of their postseason jitters in a hurry.

Down 23-22 at halftime, No. 6-seeded Sheboygan Falls rallied to outscore visiting No. 11 Watertown Luther Prep 36-23 in the second half for a 58-46 Division 3 regional-opening win in the WIAA girls basketball tournament.

“We started to press them, made a run and pulled away from that point on,” Sheboygan Falls coach Leroy Hamilton said.

The Falcons (9-14) were led by by Becky Raeder’s 18 points while Erika Van Engen added 13 points.

Sheboygan Falls, which advances to play at No. 3 Laconia (12-10) on Friday, went 18-of-27 on free throws while Watertown (7-14) was 9-of-14.

Ashli von Heimburg had a game-high 15 points and three 3-pointers for the Rockets while teammate AJ Caldwell had nine points on three 3-pointers. Cedar Grove was 6-of-10 on free throws.

Delaney Sinnen scored 12 points, Jessica Mueller added 11 points and a 9-0 Random Lake run to open the second half helped push the 11th-seeded Rams (5-16) to the upset win over No. 6 Deerfield.

“It was just a great win to come here and defeat a sixth seed,” Random Lake coach Ryan Faris said.

The Rams’ Emma Schimberg clamped down defensively on Becca Albrecht, the Demons’ usual leading scorer. She escaped the game with just two field goals.

The game was close at halftime, but the strong run early in the third quarter set a new tone for the rest of the game.

DIVISION 5 Sheboygan Lutheran 61, Hustisford 46

Britley Grulke poured in 21 points to lead the Falcons (12-11), but more consistent production in its own lineup helped Sheboygan Lutheran stay alive in the regional opener.

Erin Quam scored 19 points and hauled in 10 rebounds, and Lori Herdic pitched in 17 more points for the Crusaders (13-10), who jumped out to a nine-point lead at halftime and kept the pressure on in the third and fourth quarters.

Nobody besides Grulke scored in double figures for Hustisford.

Sheboygan Christian led 17-2 after the opening quarter and kept up the pressure the rest of the way.

“It was a good all around team effort,” Christian coach Paul Modahl said in a statement. “Defensively, we did an outstanding job and our scoring was balanced.”

Nicole Nadler led Stockbridge (11-11) with 16 points.

Oakfield 48, Elkhart Lake 45

Visiting No. 6 Elkhart Lake (7-14) built a 19-15 halftime lead but couldn’t hold on as No. 3 Oakfield (15-8) rallied for the win.

“It was a hard-fought game, close throughout, it had a great atmosphere and I just thought both teams played really hard,” Elkhart Lake coach Don Kulow said. “It’s unfortunate one team had to come up on the short end and that it was us.”

The Resorters, led by the 11 points of Emily Holzmann and 10 points of Mariah Ausloos, were held without a 3-pointer and went 9-of-21 on free throws.

Oakfield, which advances to play at No. 2 Sheboygan Christian (14-6) on Friday, finished 19-of-29 on free throws.
