Cadott’s consistentency gives good chance for success
Coming off their first winning record in two decades last season, the Cadott girls basketball squad looks to keep up that intensity. It helps that the Hornets have a strong senior group, with four of the girls playing together through their high school careers.
“We can put pressure on teams to guard us inside,” said coach Dave Hazuga.
Seniors Meadow Barone and Jada Kowlazcyk are a strong combination to score, with Kowalczyk a high-impact rebounder. Meanwhile second-year sophomore point guard and all-around player Elly Eiler, continues to improve. She also shows strong leadership and creates offense, while sophomore Lauryn Goettl should prove to be a strong impact player yet again.
Seniors McKenzie Prokupek and Hailey Wellner played significant roles last year, and Hazuga feels it will be that way again, along with newcomers who could make an impact.
“We should play smart, hard and together,” said Hazuga.
The Hornets feel that working to maintain a consistent level of competing gives the team a chance to have even more success.
“We look at each team as a challenge,” said Hazuga. “ The one we play that night, is the one we compete to beat.”The Cadott Hornets Girls Basketball team athletes and coaches, left to right, in front, are sophomores Eva Enestvedt and Morgan Moldrem; freshmen Emma Kowalczyk, Makenna Harel and Imara Mackie; and sophomore Lucy Lindeman.
