MARINETTE — The Wausaukee girls basketball team capitalized on all its scoring options and the limited number available to the opponent.

Facing a St. Thomas Aquinas Academy team with just five players available, the Rangers more than tripled the Cavalettes’ total in a 69-19 win on Monday.

Madelyn Schlies scored a game-high 18 points for Wausaukee. She scored nine first-half points; teammate Natalie Schroeder scored 13 of her 15 points before halftime.

Meanwhile, the Cavalettes got much of their offense from outside shooting from Alexa Pristelski. She scored six of their 13 first-half points and sank all three of the team’s 3-pointers in the game. Livia Benson scored four of her five points in the first half but Wausaukee entered halftime with a 38-13 lead.

St. Thomas Aquinas was limited to just two baskets in the second half, both from Pristelski. Schlies led the Rangers with nine points in the second half while the team went 10-for-14 from the line in the game.

Alyssa Edlebeck had 10 points for Wausaukee; Courtney Messar added eight points.

¦ The Stephenson girls basketball team opened the 2018-19 season with a dominating win on Monday.

Superior Central had little chance against the Eagles, who got out to a double-digit lead in the first half then essentially shutdown the Central offense in the second half of a 66-17 win.

Carly Kuntze had a game-high 21 points and outscored Central on her own. Autumn Rasner added 16 points while Emily and McKayla Johnson had 10 points each.

The Eagles play at Carney-Nadeau on Friday.
