By Greg Seubert
Lizzie Steingraber had the hot hand for the New London girls’ basketball team in the Bulldogs’ Bay Conference opener.
The senior connected on six three-pointers – including five in the first half – and scored a game-high 20 points Dec. 6 in a 49-36 win over Seymour.
New London led 28-17 at halftime behind Steingraber’s 17 points and seven from Shelby Glodowski.
Heather Krause’s basket cut New London’s lead to 29-19 early in the second half, but the Bulldogs responded with a 15-3 run to put the game out of reach.
The Thunder scored the game’s final nine points to erase a 22-point deficit.
Jensen Mix scored 12 of her 13 points in the second half for the Bulldogs, while Keira VandeHei led Seymour with 12 points.
New London improved to 4-1 with the win and will host Green Bay East at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9.
