2/29/24 WIAA Division 4 Basketball Sectional Semi-Final: #1 McDonell Lady Macks 78, #2 Phillips 46

On the road at a neutral site for their first Sectional game, the Lady Macks (25-2, 13-1 Western Cloverbelt Conference) came out of the gates firing against the Loggers (24-3, 15-1 Marawood North Conference), who struggled to find a rhythm offensively against McDonell's relentless D.

The Lady Macks took a 24-point lead into the locker room at the break and never gave up control in the second half, continuing to maintain and even stretch their advantage. Four players scored in double figures, two had 20+ point nights, and McDonell rolled into a rematch with Fall Creek in Saturday's Sectional final.

WOGO "RadioActive" Award Watch:
Senior center Aubrey Dorn absolutely controlled the paint throughout the game, grabbing rebound after rebound and scoring a game-high (and her season high) 25 points. Freshman guard EllaMay Cooper was brilliant both from beyond the arc and the free throw line, tallying 22 on the night, while senior point guard Emily Cooper was the consummate floor general and scored 13. Fellow senior guard Isabel Hartman was also very impressive as she contributed her own season-high in scoring, finishing with 12 points.
