Algoma finished the season 7-16 overall and 3-13 in the Packerland conference. The Wolves will be without the Packerland Conference leading scorer from last season Carter Zimmerman, who graduated last season.

Algoma hosts Spartans for early season test

The Wolves got a strong output from their projected top scorer Ryley Zimmerman as she scored 10 of those 30 points. Algoma trailed by four going into the break, but were not able to turn the tides in their favor, as they were outscored 22-16 in the second half. Ella Madden was the next highest scorer, as she chipped in five of her own. The Wolves had all seven of their players in their box score score, but none of them more than Madden’s five.

Overcoming changes in store for Wolves Boys Basketball season

The Wolves of Algoma saw themselves in a bunch of close losses last season in the men's basketball season. They will look to turn those close losses into wins, without the leading scorer in the Packerland conference returning this season. 


With a 3-13 record last season in the Packerland, and a 7-16 record overall, Algoma will look to take the multiple close losses and turn the record into a more positive outcome this season. It will all be without Carter Zimmerman however, as he was a part of the four player senior class the Wolves had last season. Zimmerman averaged 21.1 points per game on 54.3% shooting from the field. 


Expect Kaden Vardon and Owen Robertson to take the biggest steps and take over the running of the offense for the Wolves. Algoma also has seen their head coaching position undergo some changes with their former head coach Corie Zimmerman stepping down. Eric Schneider has taken over the head coaching position and role for the Wolves, and will lead the team for the 2022-2023 season. 


Algoma opens up their year against NE Wisconsin Christian Home School on November 22nd, and takes on their first conference opponent on December 1st against the Kewaunee Storm. 

Wolves travel to Ashwaubenon for opener against Tigers

The Wolves of Algoma will pay a visit to the Ashwaubenon Tigers in their season opener of their Girls Basketball season Tuesday night. 


Algoma could find themselves having another strong season, potentially finding themselves towards the top of the Packerland conference after a 9-7 performance in conference play last season lead to an overall record of 11-14 overall. A good start against Ashwaubenon could instill some confidence in the team in non-conference play, and end up starting the season off the right way. 


Ashwaubenon found themselves around .500 basketball last season, with their overall record being finalized at 13-12. Although the Tigers only lost two seniors from last seasons roster, those two seniors found themselves in the top three of the scoring averages from last season. Ashwaubenon will look from some more production from their underclassmen against the Wolves Tuesday night. 


The game is set for 7:00 P.M.

Algoma Girls Basketball sees familiarity going into season

Algoma Girls Basketball will have a smooth time getting back into the flow for the 2022-2023 season, as the Wolves only lost two seniors this past season. 


The Wolves get back all of their leading scorers, as Rylee Zimmerman and Halle Panger return for Algoma, as well as the whole starting core. The Wolves went out in the second round of last season's playoffs, as they lost to St. Mary’s Catholic 59-24. Algoma’s record last season should be improved upon, as they finished last year 11-14 overall, but 9-7 in the Packerland. 


Zimmerman was able to earn herself some Packerland conference honors last season, as she went home with Second Team All-Conference. Zimmerman was joined by teammates Emily Kirchman and Sierra Slaby who were honorable mentions in last season's All-Conference teams. 


The Wolves will open up play on the road for the new season, as they take a non-conference trip to Ashwaubenon to take on the Tigers. On November 29th, they will take on their first conference opponent, as they welcome in the new look Kewaunee Storm.
