January 14, 2019

JOHNSON CREEK — Freshman forward Kaitlyn Kuhl scored 14 points for Johnson Creek’s girls basketball team in a 54-14 Trailways South victory over Madison Country Day School on Friday.

Johnson Creek (2-10, 2-4 in conference) led 20-2 at halftime, allowing Country Day School (0-13, 0-6) just two free throws over the first 18 minutes. Junior forward Hannah Constable added 10 second half points.

“Being able to get everybody some good minutes is never bad thing,” Johnson Creek girls basketball coach Jake Wedig said. “We started a little slower than I hoped, but once we got into the flow of the game, we played well. The biggest thing is we’ve got to maintain this. We have a big game coming up. We have to have a good week of practice.”

Johnson Creek plays at Williams Bay on Thursday.

WATERLOO 50,

CAMBRIDGE 47

WATERLOO — Senior point guard Samantha Battenberg blocked a game-tying 3-point attempt in the final minute of regulation to help Waterloo’s girls basketball team preserve a 50-47 Capitol South win over Cambridge on Friday.

Waterloo (11-3, 2-2 in conference) led by 11 at halftime, but Cambridge (4-10, 0-4) rallied to get within one and had possession with 56 seconds left. The Pirates got a stop and a rebound and senior guard Brittney Limoseth made both free throws to push Waterloo’s lead to 49-46.

“They had a shot with 30 seconds left, and Sam had a huge block,” Waterloo girls basketball coach Gabe Haberkorn said. “She’s 5-foot-2 (closing out) on a 6-1 girl shooting from the elbow. We got the rebound and ran some clock and made a free throw after that.”

Senior forward Melanie Renforth scored 15 points and Limoseth added 13 for Waterloo.

“Renforth battled hard,” Haberkorn said. “Between her and Brittany and Ashley Caraballo, we were strong on the boards.”

Limoseth led the Pirates with eight rebounds, while Renforth and Caraballo each added seven.

“If Ashley doesn’t get in foul trouble, things are probably a little different in the second half,” Haberkorn said. “They pounded the post and hurt us in the post and hit some shots. The girls really gutted this one out. We didn’t play our best, but a lot of the girls are sick and I know they are gutting this out. They should be proud of this big win.”

Waterloo hosts Markesan on Monday.

HUSTISFORD 69,

WAYLAND 34

BEAVER DAM — Junior guard Julia Leinen and senior forward Cassidy Ewert each had 12 points in Hustisford’s 69-34 Trailways East win over Wayland on Friday.

Leinen scored all 12 of her points in the first half, while Ewert had six in each half for Husty (7-6, 5-1 in conference). Senior forward Brittney Fredrick added 10 points to give the Falcons three players in double figures.

“We came out early running the ball,” Hustisford girls basketball coach Julia Leinen said. “Our three starters in double figures played less than half the game. It was nice to get all the girls in tonight. Eleven of our 13 girls scored.”
