2/25/21 WIAA Division 5 State Semi-Final Basketball: (3) Wisconsin Rapids Assumption 46, (2) McDonell Lady Macks 43

At the WIAA State Tournament for the first time in program history, the Lady Macks (12-4, 6-2 Western Cloverbelt Conference) had a severe height disadvantage but battled gamely against the Royals (15-8, 8-3 Marawood South Conference), who led by just three at the half.

In the second, McDonell watched Assumption gradually create separation, leading by as many as 14 before a magnificent run by the Lady Macks cut the deficit to one late in the game. The Royals held on however, bringing a historic McDonell season to a close just shy of the ultimate goal.

WOGO "RadioActive" Award Watch:
Junior guard Lauryn Deetz again led the way, scoring all 11 of her points in the second half, while senior Anna Geissler played hard in her last game in a McDonell uniform and finished with eight. Sophomore Marley Hughes added seven points.
