Wolverines have a young team with experience
Having just lost one senior to graduation, the West Bend-Mallard Wolverines girls basketball team will come back to the courts this year with an experienced group of three seniors and an astonishing seven juniors.
The team had an extremely difficult season last year winning just five of their 21 games. The final game closed with a hard loss to West Hancock, who ended their season with a loss in the State Championship game to the states best Newell-Fonda squad.
This year is different though. With the upcoming players who saw action last year at a very young age in their high school career, the sights are set on improving to a respectable record. Rachel Fehr, one of the many Fehr’s on the team, led the team in scoring by ending with 156 points averaging 7.4 points per game. R. Fehr was also able to celebrate the teams best 3-point shot with 16/48 made and a 33.3% accuracy. Rachel also found some sticky hands when she was able to take away the ball from the opponent 90 times which earned her 5th most steals in the Conference.
Another Fehr on the list is Monika who contributed a total of 139 points to the team. Monika did some damage for the team below the hoop by securing a total of 112 rebounds; a 5.3 rebounds per game average.
With the 2019-2020 season underway, the girls will be set to play in their first game on December 3rd at home against Graettinger-Terril/Ruthven-Ayrshire.
