GLENWOOD CITY — Third-year head coach Dean Fayerweather knows that in order for his Glenwood City girls’ basketball team to realize more wins this season he needs players that not only want to lead the Hilltoppers’ squad but be among the Dunn-St. Croix’s top performers especially in rebounding and steals.
“I return six seniors, and would like to see some players compete in the conference as leading rebounders and steals,” stated the Hilltoppers’ head coach.
Fayerweather and the Lady Hilltoppers, who are just 6-40 during his tenure including a 3-11 conference record and a 4-19 finish last season, will need that senior leadership for the 2018-19 hardwood campaign in what is a very talented field of Dunn-St. Croix girls’ teams.
Last year’s team leaders in rebounds and ball handlers for the Toppers, Jenesa Klinger and Mariah Voeltz, were lost to graduation in the spring.
Klinger earned a second-team all-conference honors and was 50 of 92 from the free throw line during the 2017-18 season and finished with 177 points to lead the Hilltoppers. She also dished out 65 assists.
Voeltz rebounded the ball 127 against the Toppers opponents with 40 field goals and five three-point baskets in her 21 games played.
Also graduating last May were Emily Hill, Cortney Lawson and Makayla O’Brien.
Letterwinner and senior Delaney Quinn returns after finishing as the Toppers second leading scorer with 54 field goals in 175 attempts, nine three pointers and was 46 of 95 from the line.
Joining Quinn fellow senior and returning forward, Hannah Strehlo, who scored 110 points overall with a high of 13, 123 rebounds and 12 assists.
Also returning for the Lady Toppers are Alexys Curvello, Olivia Scalze, Maggie Wallin and Delanie Fayerweather.
Coach Fayerweather will expect the girls to be committed to being competitive on the court and become mentally tougher against their opponents.
“Our top competitors are Colfax with their returning varsity players and Durand who has good shooters and are well disciplined,” coach Fayerweather commented.
The Lady Toppers will start their season with several away games, beginning with Ellsworth last evening (Tuesday, November 13), Prairie Farm this Thursday, November 15 and in Grantsburg on November 27. Glenwood City will open up conference play against the Mondovi Buffaloes on November 29 in Mondovi.
