Indians cruise in conference opener
Weyauwega-Fremont opened up Central Wisconsin 8 Conference girls’ basketball play Dec. 13 with a 42-11 win at Manawa.
The Indians improved to 5-0 on the season and led 13-2 after one quarter, 23-5 at halftime and 33-11 after three quarters before holding the Wolves scoreless over the final eight minutes.
Morgan Wilson led the Indians 16 points and also hit nine of 10 free throws, while Karissa Akey added nine points and had a team-high eight rebounds and five steals.
We started out well,” coach Joe Titus said. “Between Hailey (Krause), Karissa and Morgan, we did a good job of controlling a lot in the paint. Morgan got a lot of attention down low and did a great job getting to the line and making them when she got there.”
On the other hand, there’s also room for improvement, according to Titus.
“We still need to get better at finishing down low, but we are getting good looks down there,” he said. “Alyssa (Goode) and Cara (Volz) did a good job handling the ball for us and it was good to see some of our reserves get a chance. Sadie (Kaminske) did a nice job for us off the bench, as did Rachel (Knorr) and Miranda (Potratz).”
The Indians played at Amherst Dec. 17 and will host Wittenberg-Birnamwood at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 20. W-F is then off until the Indians host Winnebago Lutheran Friday, Jan. 3.
