2/24/23 WIAA Division 5 Basketball Regional Semi-Final: (2) McDonell Lady Macks 65, (10) Owen-Withee 34

After a snowstorm cancelled school and prevented practice, the second-seeded Lady Macks (21-5, 14-0 Western Cloverbelt Conference) started a little slower than they might have liked against the youthful and talented Blackhawks (9-15, 5-9 Eastern Cloverbelt Conference), but soon saw their relentless pressure defense pay dividends.

In the second half, McDonell rotated subs often, and again every player who suited up saw action. Also for the second game in a row, ten Lady Macks entered the scoring column, as they pulled away from Owen-Withee and punched their ticket to the Regional Final.

WOGO "RadioActive" Award Watch:
Junior center Aubrey Dorn scored 16 of her game-high 20 points in the first half to pace the Lady Macks, while junior guard Emily Cooper returned to action and finished with 13 points and a trio of threes. Junior guard Maddie Geissler tallied all 8 of her points in the second half.
