The Luxemburg-Casco Spartan girls dominated the Little Chute Mustangs 82-56 in a North Eastern Conference basketball game Friday night in Luxemburg on 96.7FM WBDK.
Luxemburg-Casco (10-1, 12-3 overall) was not able to shake the Mustangs early on. Little Chute (6-5, 9-6 overall) was within three points in the last seconds of the half before Spartan’s Jenna Jorgenson was fouled at the buzzer on a half-court attempt. Jorgenson made all three free throws and the Spartans took a 40-34 led into intermission.
The Spartans pulled away in the second half behind Freshman Lauren Adams who scored 17 of her 23 points including three three-pointers. Jorgenson led Luxemburg-Casco with 25 points while Cassie Schiltz added 19. 6’ 2” Hannah Vandenberg was the only Mustang player to score in double digits as she finished with 23 points.
The evening included the 1988 team that won the Spartans' first girls basketball state championship being recognized at halftime. Eight members of the team who was coached by the late Mike Schanofer were in attendance.
The next Spartan girls’ basketball game broadcast on WBDK 96.7FM will be next Thursday at Freedom. Matt Piesler and Paul Schmitt will have the call starting at 7:00 p.m. with the pregame show and tip-off at 7:15 p.m. Game audio can also be streamed on DoorCountyDailyNews.com.
