Steingraber beats pair of buzzers
Senior leads Bulldogs to wins
By Greg Seubert
Lizzie Steingraber has hit plenty of big shots in her four seasons with the New London girls’ basketball team.
Two of her biggest came in the Bulldogs’ recent wins over Stevens Point and Winneconne.
Steingraber’s jumper at the buzzer gave New London a 57-55 win over Stevens Point Jan. 30 at New London High School. The other game-winning shot came Jan. 24 in a 48-46 win over Winneconne.
New London also improved to 7-1 in Bay Conference play Jan. 26 with a 69-17 win over Green Bay East.
New London 57, Stevens Point 55
New London improved to 16-2 overall with a win over the Panthers, a team that headed to New London with a 13-5 record.
The Bulldogs headed to the locker room at halftime with a 29-20 lead after Caitlin Stroesenreuther connected on a three-pointer as time expired.
New London led by as many as 15 points in the second half, but several three-pointers helped the Panthers get back in the game. Stevens Point’s Lauren Strasman tied the game with a pair of free throws with five seconds on the scoreboard, which left Steingraber and Bulldogs with one last chance for a win.
