[December 17, 2013]  CLINTON -- The eighth-grade team from West Lincoln-Broadwell will compete in the 8-1A third-place game on Thursday after defeating an undefeated Tonica team but then falling to Danville Schlarman, the same team that defeated WLB in the championship game last year.

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.

Kaelyn Froebe 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.
