Lutheran’s Hahn finishes with likely first triple-double in program history

It’s a safe bet Rose Hahn recently had the first triple-double in the history of the Sheboygan Lutheran girls basketball program.

Crusaders coach Mike Scheele has been at the school for 13 years and he does not recall it ever happening. He also talked to the current athletic director and a former one – who also coached the girls – and both were unaware of the accomplishment.

So she is likely the first girl at Lutheran to finish with at least 10 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in a game, right?

“I think we’re all thinking yes to that,” Scheele said.

The junior, who leads the team in scoring with 13 points per game, totaled 14 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists in a victory over Stockbridge in late January.

“Rose was just really aggressive that night, offensively and defensively,” Scheele said. “Rebounding, she was extremely aggressive crashing the boards. And from an assist perspective, she did a really good job finding her open teammates. It was a combination of aggressiveness on Rose’s part, dishing to her teammates and her teammates paying her back by making some shots.”

Hahn, however, did not find out it was a triple-double until her coach added up the stats afterward and texted her two days later.

“I was like, ‘oh, that’s kind of cool,'” she said.

But it was not the only outstanding game Hahn has had recently.

Against Ozaukee, she scored her varsity-best 29 points and was two assists and three rebounds shy of having her first triple-double then.

Four days later against Reedsville, Hahn tallied a double-double: 25 points and 15 rebounds to go with seven assists.

Not bad for someone who switched from a shooting guard last season to a point guard this year.

“She’s kind of taken additional responsibility of playing point this year and leading us that way,” Scheele said. “She’s adjusted really nicely. She worked really hard in the offseason on her shot and ball handling.

“I think we’re seeing the impact of that this year.”

But is there another triple-double in Hahn’s future?

“Yeah, I think I could do it again. I just gotta keep working at it,” she said.
