Chilton senior guard Olivia Hoerl erupted for what is believed to be a school-record 42 points, but her Tiger squad came up one-point shy in a 76-75 home loss to Ozaukee as the girls basketball season opened this week. It was also the debut of new Chilton coach Stacy (Riemer) Woelfel, a former Chilton and Wisconsin Badger standout player. Chilton had dropped its season opener last Tuesday, 71-53, at Manitowoc Lutheran.

New Holstein was very impressive in their opener last Tuesday as they went to Plymouth and stunned the Panthers in an 86-66 NH win. The 86 points is a New Holstein single game record as the Huskies had five players score in double figures led by Grace Schisel's 21 points. Payton Grenzer and Brianna Guelig recorded double-doubles, each with 14 points and ten rebounds. It snapped a 12-game losing streak to Plymouth with last Huskies win coming in February of 2008.

Kiel opened with a pair of tough non-conference games. On Tuesday in Kiel, Winnebago Lutheran pulled away in the final four minutes for a 64-51 win, but the Raiders bounced back on Friday with a dominating second half on their way to a 61-31 home win over Kewaunee. Kiel trailed 25-22 at halftime, but held the Storm to just six second half points. Coryn Fromm came back from a twisted ankle suffered in the first half to score 16 points and Emma Adleman added 13 as Jamie Vandermeuse earned his first win as Kiel coach.

Josh Forstner's debut at Stockbridge did not open on a good note as state-ranked Sheboygan Lutheran opened up an 18-0 lead and cruised to an easy win over the young and inexperienced Indians playing without top returnee Katelin Kramp.
