The morning game Saturday against the undefeated Lady Braves of
Tonica started out slowly for the Lady Wolverines as the score
after the first quarter was 4-4. But WLB exploded in the second
quarter, scoring 15 points and allowing Tonica only three. The
Lady Wolverines would go on to win the game by a score of 39-17
and solidify a place in the state final four.
led all scorers with 15. Ali Wilson added eight, and Morgan
Lolling, Autumn Hoffert and Emerie Wieber put in four points
each. Wieber found herself in great rebounding position as she
was able to pull down nine boards. Froebe and Lolling helped by
pulling down eight boards each. Lolling and Froebe also led on
the defensive side, both picking up six steals.
The Saturday evening game was a rematch of last year’s 7-1A
state championship game as the Wolverines were up against a very
talented Danville Schlarman team. As the Lady Wolverines found
themselves down by almost 30, they battled back, outscoring
Danville in the second half, but it was just too much, as the
final score was 58-40.
Thirteen 3-pointers were made in this game: eight by Danville
and five by WLB.
Kaelyn Froebe led WLB in scoring with 16 points, including
four 3-pointers. Ali Wilson contributed with eight points,
Kennedy Lolling with seven and Morgan Lolling with five. Morgan
Lolling also led on the boards with seven as Emerie Wieber
pulled down five. Kennedy Lolling and her quick defense picked
up four steals.
With the loss, the Lady Wolverines are now 20-3 and will
compete for third place at 6 p.m. Thursday evening at Clinton
Junior High School. This game is a chance to come out and
support the team one last time and show appreciation for what
they have accomplished, with back-to-back state appearances and
finishing in the final four both years.
