Algoma boys can't douse Blazer offense

Gresham entered the game with three wins on the year out of the Central Wisconsin Conference. Algoma returns to the court on Friday against a hot Sturgeon Bay squad, the first of three consecutive home games for the Wolves as they try to build momentum and turn around a 0-9 start.

Algoma girls scrape by Sturgeon Bay

The Algoma High School girls basketball team won a hard-fought, defensive battle at Sturgeon Bay Tuesday night, 36-31. Senior guard Chloe Spitzer led the team with 14 points, the only Algoma player in double figures. Algoma improves to 5-7 overall and 3-5 in the Packerland Conference. For Sturgeon Bay, Sarah Bridenhagen led her team with 14 points and was the only scorer in double figures.

The Wolves were paced in scoring by Halle Panger with 11 points and Hanna Wiese with 10 points. They also hit two more three-point shots than the Pioneers and took 12 more free throw attempts, going 14-28 from the line. Zoe Kuehn led the Pioneers in scoring with 14 points. 

Algoma boys can't collar Peshtigo

The Algoma High School boys basketball team is still looking for its first win of the season after falling at Peshtigo, 57-41, on Friday night. The Wolves had the game’s leading scorer overall in Carter Zimmerman. His 21 points were not enough to offset the balanced attack of the Bulldogs. Luke McMahon dropped in 17 with Seth Davis chipping in 13 and Tanner Marquardt contributed eight points. Algoma’s next game is against Sevastopol. Looking at their schedule, if the Wolves fail to pick up the win against the Pioneers they may be searching for a while. Games against Southern Door and Sturgeon Bay make the middle of January a tough stretch on the calendar.
