Homestead wrapped up the outright North Shore Conference title for the second straight year with a 64-53 victory over closest challenger Cedarburg to put a bow on a 18-0 NSC campaign. Madison Fitzgibbon led all scorers with 17 points and Emma Wolf contributed with 12 points. Sarah Helm led the Bulldogs with 14 points.
“They’re the ones playing. Of course I see things out there, but they’re the ones playing and seeing how the girls are defending them. I probably asked them 10 or 15 times tonight, ‘What do you want?’ They would tell me what they want to run. I have the trust in them that, even though we might not score, I trust them and want to run what they want because they’re the ones out there doing it.”

With a victory, the Lasers (22-1, 15-0) would win their third straight conference crown and become just the second program in Classic 8 history to finish a season unbeaten in conference play. But a West (20-3, 13-2) win would’ve forced a split of the title between the two top-5 programs in Divisions 1 and 2 respectively.
With about four minutes to play, Kettle Moraine led, 65-57, with Torres on the bench with four fouls. She checked back into the game and before she did, Hansen shot a non-verbal message at her by pointing at his cranium. The message was received, as Torres immediately hit a right wing triple to put the Lasers up 11 with 3:32 to play and then almost stole the ball away on the other end of the floor with a deflection out of bounds.

Natalie Meaux paced the Sabers with 20 points in the clinching victory, while Vanessa Ahmad contributed with 15 points, Taylor Wojcinski scored 13 points and Lauren Capstran chipped in with 12 points. Neveah Thomas led all scorers with 25 points for the Red Devils.Girls Basketball goes undefeated in North Shore Conference play!! All three seniors scored on senior night to wrap up the regular season. The team will play next Friday, February 24 in a regional game at home. #RiseWithUs #GoHighlanders #TeamTogether In the Metro Classic title race, Dominican clinched at least a share of the championship with a 87-17 win over Milwaukee Carmen Northwest. Four Knights scored in double figures, led by Brooklyn Love’s 23 points. The defensive display was just as dominant as the offensive display was for the Knights with 30 steals and 11 blocks. “It’s always been there with us,” Torres said on her player-coach communication with Hansen. “He understands that we know the game well and that he doesn’t need to say anything sometimes. We know what he wants out of us and what’s going to happen for us in the game. It really helps us in the moment of the game.”

Two of West’s three defeats came at the hands of the Lasers and the other in their season opener against Union Grove, a potential Sectional 3 sectional semifinal opponent.
“I think they’re really good,” Hansen said on the Wolverines. “I will not be surprised if they go to state, in fact, I think they will go to state. I know Union Grove is really good, but if they shoot like they did and play how they did tonight, I just don’t see how they don’t make it.”Hansen was quick to give the Wolverines a heap of praise after the blistering duel in which they battled back from an 11-point deficit in the final four minutes.Franklin defeated Kenosha Bradford, 66-49, and sealed up the outright SEC crown for the first time since 2006, ending Oak Creek’s historic title streak in the same season they ended the Knights’ string of 135 consecutive conference victories. In typical fashion, Kettle Moraine’s version of Batman and Robin took center stage in a wild 74-72 triumph for the top-ranked Lasers. Grace Grocholski, who has committed to West Virginia, led all scorers with 29 points and five rebounds, while Braelyn Torres, who will head to Northern Michigan, did just about everything on both ends with 24 points, five rebounds and five assists. There’s much more to play for, but the playoffs appeared to start early for both Kettle Moraine and Waukesha West in what was seemingly a Classic 8 Conference title game.

With WIAA regionals starting Tuesday, girls basketball teams around the Milwaukee area have wrapped up their regular seasons. Here’s a look at some of the action Friday.”There was many times in this game, I said to them, ‘What do you want on offense?’ They’re the ones playing,” coach Todd Hansen said of Grocholski, who can take over a game with her sharpshooting from deep, and Torres, who turns defense into offense.

“We’ve all found our homes for next year and I think we can just play comfortable and be our ourselves,” Krohn said. “Especially for our teammates, just letting them know this is what we want to do and this is what we’re here to do. I think we all wanted it really badly.”
“Sometimes it’s like, ‘Oh, you’ve got so many good players.’” Busalacchi said. “That comes with its set of issues, too, because those kids want to play and think they should play, and then you’ve got a determination about who’s going to play.”Yow, who’s now playing at NCAA Division II Metropolitan State University of Denver, settled into the starting point guard role. But despite all that talent, West once again struggled out of the gates in 2021-22.

Andersen, who will play collegiately at UW-Whitewater, may have been self-deprecating with that remark. But she’s carved out a stellar high-school career at West — where she chose to attend for a number of reasons, including getting the chance to continue playing with fellow senior forward Caden Krohn.
Krohn led the team in scoring, Andersen had a memorable buzzer-beater against Kettle Moraine, and while the Wolverines finished 8-8 in conference play, they made a run all the way to the Division 2 sectional final. West took a 20-14 lead into halftime against Oregon but couldn’t hold on from there.FINDING A COMFORT ZONE College decisions can weigh heavily on high school students, which made it all the more important that West’s quartet of seniors was able to get those decisions out of the way before the home stretch of the season.

For the second straight season, Hellendrung wasn’t among the team’s top-five scorers as the Wolverines got off to yet another slow start and fell to Union Grove in the D2 sectional semifinals. Boy, has that changed her senior year.

Junior Navaeh Thompson, who led the Wolverines in scoring last season, tore her ACL and transferred to Waukesha South. Lilly Hanke, who will play goalie collegiately at Drake University, also suffered an ACL injury and chose to focus on soccer her senior year. And fellow senior Emersyn Tranel, who will be attending the University of Tennessee, recently decided to move back home.“I think we all found our roles,” Hellendrung said. “I think last year was a bit questionable what everyone’s roles were and I think that we found a clique that we didn’t have in the past like we did this year. So I think that everyone stepped up to their role, which really helped us.”
