Sturgeon Bay girls basketball earned quite possibly their biggest victory in a decade last night. A 47-27 win over Algoma is the type of win that could start to turn a program around. The Clippers have been marred in futility for over a decade since the likes of Sierra Spaude, Lauren McCormick, Jennifer Nesbitt and fellow classmates led the Clippers.
On Thursday it was Sarah Bridenhagen leading the way. She tallied 19 points to lead all scorers. Kenzye Hassenjager added 12 points. Coach Eric Taushek said, "Our seniors led us tonight, Brenna Zuehlke, Anna Fischer and Kenzye Hassenjager.
Taushek continued, "This is a huge win for the program and something as a team we can build on. The girls gave everything they had last night. The girls proved to themselves that we can play and beat anyone on any given night. The underclassmen we’re able to a part of this and see how much fun this was, it didn’t come easy, but the hard work they put in tonight was definitely worth it. I am extremely proud of the girls it was a great night of basketball for the Sturgeon Bay program!"
Kewaunee wrapped up an undefeated run in the regular season to win the Packerland Conference championship without a blemish on their record. The Storm topped Sevastopol 48-33. Zoe Kuehn led the Pioneers with 13 points and Amber Roalkvan added 11 points in the loss.
Southern Door fell to Gibraltar 57-43. Payton Pluff led all scorers with 18 points. Karlee Kita and Sage Krause added 11 points apiece in the win. Grace LeGrave led the Eagles with 12 points.
