Crivitz/Wausaukee/Oneida are M&O Tri-Champions

Issue Date: February 21, 2019

Wausaukee Girls Grab Share of Title With Hard Fought Win Over Oneida Nation

The Wausaukee Ranger girls, have fought for everything they have earned this season and last Monday night they finished their season string, Grabbing a share of the M&O girls title with a 41-38 win over the Thunderhawks.

The Rangers needed the win, with it they would have been left in the cold looking in at the champions, instead they they took down the Onieda Nation Thunderhawks to split the title in a three way between themslevs, the Thunderhawks and the Wolverines of Crivitz.

Oneida came out a bit stronger than the rangers in this one, building a 20-19 lead before the intermission. That lead was keyed by M'Kenzey Ackley who fired in 10 first half points. Her teammate Mali Jacobs ensured the first half dead with a couple treys.

Wausaukee kept their heads in the game though and saw Courtney Messar help create an opportunity with her two first half three pointers.

It was the Ranger defense that would turn the tide over the second though as they held the Thunderhawks to 18 points, while covering the gap with some great shooting from Madelyn Schlies. Stiles got the tempo to raise over the second, striking for eight points. Teammate Kaelyn Schlies helped to make up the rest of the dividend with a eight point closing frame effort.

"It was an intense game from jump to final buzzer," said Wausaukee Head Coach Dave Messar. "It was exciting to end the season in this way." I was extremely happy for this team and especially my three seniors who started this journey way back in third grade. Hopefully this win will propel us deep into the tournament. I'm prude to sharer this conference title with Crivitz and Oneida Nation.

By games end Oneida's Ackley had earned top scoring honors with 18 points while teammate Jacobs posted eight points.

The Rangers saw both Schlies girls share in the lead with 12 points each. Messier followed up with eight points.

Crivitz Stays in M&O Race With Big Comeback Win over Wausaukee

Things were going so well for the Wausaukee Rangers until the final seven minutes of their game against the Crivitz Wolverines.

The Rangers were in the M&O Conference driver's seat until the loss. With seven minutes to go, they led by 12, 49-37. However, Crivitz then turned it on and came screaming back to end the game on a 15-0 run and win 52-49.

The Wolverines started turning the Rangers over on the press, which had a big impact down the stretch.

"I've got a team that slows down and all the sudden the light switch turns on and we take off. A 12-point lead is a lot of points, but when you've got players that can score and they figure it out and get in a rhythm, then the scoring takes care of itself," Crivitz coach Brett Meyers said. "It's difficult, because you don't know what you're going to get from any minute to the next and luckily those minutes came at the right time."

It also helps when you have a "dynamic" player in Chloe Gruszynski, who scored 16 in the second half to help lead her team to a win.

"Chloe is so tough. Everybody in that gym knows she's going to carry that team and she did it again," Wausaukee coach Dave Messar said.

She scored 26 in the game. That doesn't make it any easier for Messar to take, however.

"It was a tremendous gut punch to me, because we probably outplayed them for 34 of 36 minutes," he said. "We didn't play to win, we played not to lose."

Crivitz also got 13 points from Sianna Guns and Emalee Johnsen chipped in 9. For Wausaukee, Madelyn Schlies led with 16. Natalie Schroeder had 14 and Kaelyn Schlies had 10.

The win kept the Wolverines' hopes alive in the M&O despite a Thursday loss to Gillett that was a negative for the team's chances.

"The rivalry made a big difference and the second part as they've got a pretty short-term memory and they just want to play," Meyers said. "They could have very easily given up, but it's a testament to the type of kids they are and the community they come from and it's what they do. They play hard."

Suring Slaps Lena With Loss

The Suring Eagle girls basketball team took a hard fought win over the Lena Wildcats last Thursday night in Lena 59-42.

The Wildcats had a good second half, scoring 26 points but found themselves starting a bit slow over the first half as the Eagles took the lead going into the intermission 27-16.

Lena's Portier was on point during the matchup. She consistently scored all game long, helping to keep her Wildcats within comeback range. By games end she had amassed 18 points. 10 of which came from the free throw line in a 10 of 14 showing.

Kyle Stelzer was the games leading scorer though, capturing that honor by one point with a 19 point final readout. Following Steelier on the score sheets was Ryann Wagner with 12 points. Smith and Linzy Runge both merged a seven point night.

Lena's Maddy Herald chipped in a nine point effort on the night while Brooke Peterson and Spratlin both got five points each.

Bobcat Girls Find Themselves Short by One

The Florence Bobcats nearly had enough to bag another win on the season last Thursday night when they took on the Three Lakes girls, but ended up coming up a buck short on the payment 51-50.

The game was decided by a single point first half differential, while both teams plugged out a 26 point second frame effort.

Kathleen Selden led the charge for the Bobcats with 11 points while Jenna Springer made her way into double digits with 10. Jordan Springer and Cassie Larson both fired in eight points each.

Crivitz Girls Suffer Breakdown in Important Matchup

The Crivitz Wolverine girls, who find themselves locked up in a heat conference crown race suffered a huge setback in their final week of play as the Gillett Tiger ran up a 65 point tally while holding the Wolverines at 56.

The huge win for the Tiger's was keyed by Karissa Schaal who was undaunted by the importance of the contest, firing in a game leading 16 points. Teammate Sidney Young added 12 to the total while Aubrey DeBauch chipped in 11. Long joined her double digit teammates with 10 points.

The Wolverines had three starters hit the double digit column with Emalee Johnsen and Chloe Gruszynski leading the charge with 14 points. Morgan VanLanen added 11.

37 points over the first half by the Thunderhawks was just about all they needed to set down the Eagles, who by games end only surprised the Thunderhawk first half tally by four.
