Coach Gary Schmidt’s team faces Wauwatosa West and Shorewood this week and should get back on the winning track.

Freshman Anna Mortag continues to improve as she had 22 points and Caroline Busch had 12 vs the Indians. Point guard Amanda Miller and forward Ellery Nordling as also picked up their games.

Claire Haynes, who suffered a severe injury (back) in the second game of the season, has been given the green light to slowly work her way back onto the court. Her presence and leadership alone could be a boost to this club.

5. Brookfield East (8-8, 3-5) – The Lady Spartans have a 5-game losing streak going with games against West Allis Hale and and West Allis Central this week. They need to get back on track or see a good season go down the drain.
