The Lady Wolverines opened the first game tentatively on offense. As
with most games, their defense feeds their offense, and in the
second half the Lady Wolverines pulled together and forced turnovers
to create their offensive attack. The Lady Wolverines defeated the
Lady Hawks of Crescent City by a score of 24-16.
Kaelyn Froebe led
all scorers with 11 points. Ali Wilson and Autumn Hofffert
contributed with four each. Kennedy Lolling and Emma Konczyk helped
on the boards by pulling down seven each. Konczyk also stepped up
defensively as she was able to snag nine steals, and Morgan Lolling
picked up nine steals as well.
With this win the Lady Wolverines had already made history for
the program and had positioned themselves for a "final four"
appearance, but that wasn't their mission.
Next up for the Lady Wolverines were the aggressive Timberwolves
of Okaw Valley. The Lady Wolverines were not coming out tentatively
this time as they jumped on the T’wolves and never looked back. The
Lady Wolverines went on to beat the T’wolves by a score of 33-15.
Kaelyn Froebe led all scorers with 15.
