WIAA Girls Basketball: Area teams get top seeds


The tiny Sheboygan Christian girls basketball team has picked up a mighty No. 1 seed in the WIAA Division 5 postseason bracket.

Ditto for Howards Grove (Division 4) and Kiel (D3), which will start their playoff runs with first-round byes against yet-to-be-determined opponents.

The WIAA released girls basketball postseason seed brackets on Sunday, offering clues about the paths local girls teams will have to take en route to a potential state tournament.

Sheboygan North earned a No. 2 seed in Division 1. Random Lake got the same berth in D4.

A few other local teams — including Plymouth (D2), Sheboygan Falls (D3), Ozaukee (D4) and Sheboygan Lutheran (D5) — got No. 5 seeds.

Christian has played the season with a shorthanded roster — just eight girls — but has soared to the top of the Central Lakeshore Conference standings and has enjoyed regular attention in weekly Division 5 state polls.

Howards Grove has ridden much of the regular season neck-and-neck with Christian in the CLC. Kiel has been a regular in state polls and is in a chase for at least a share of the Eastern Wisconsin Conference title.
