The Sevastopol girls’ basketball team will look to pick up a victory this Friday. The Pioneers will welcome Lena High School from the Marinette-Oconto Conference to Institute. The Wildcats are 1-13 on the year, and 1-10 in their own conference, and have averaged 34.2 points per game this season. Maddy Herald leads Lena in scoring at 11.6 points per game, but perhaps a bigger threat to Sevastopol will be forward Mackenna Porteir, who averages 8 points a game but also adds an average of 10.6 rebounds per game to her post-game totals. Sevastopol head coach Dan Judas doesn’t think records will mean much on Friday. He said Lena plays in a tough conference and will give his team a challenge at home.
Judas said his team would need to establish their style of play early and not allow the Wildcats to dictate the flow of the game offensively and defensively. Following the matchup with Lena, the Pioneers will take the weekend off before traveling to Stockbridge on Monday. Sevastopol is 2-11 on the season and 0-10 in the Packerland conference.
