WAUKESHA – After watching an eight-point second-quarter lead all but evaporate in the final three minutes of the first half Friday, the Catholic Memorial High School girls basketball team said goodbye to all the momentum it had gained to that point.

However, it didn’t take long in the second half for momentum to find its way back on the Crusaders’ sideline.

Outscoring Kettle Moraine 12-2 during the middle part of the third quarter, Memorial pushed its lead to double figures and won going away, upsetting the Lasers 59-37 in a Classic 8 Conference game at Memorial...


...Junior forward Karly Lentz led the way, making all three of the 3-pointers and finishing with a team-high 14 points.

In fact, it was a key 3-pointer and a fast-break layup by Lentz early in the third quarter that helped fuel the Crusaders’ decisive run.

“We were really pumped for this game and we just worked as hard as we could to get this win,” Lentz said. “At halftime, we tried to calm ourselves down and talked about just keeping things under control but still having intensity.”

While Lentz helped ignite the key third-quarter run, sophomore guard Alison Mueller kept it going, scoring seven of her 11 points in the period.

In the first half, the Crusaders were led by senior center Elizabeth Guhl, who had four of her 10 points and six of her game-high 12 rebounds in the first quarter, and by junior forward Jenny Benash, who scored six of her eight points in the opening period.
