MOVE OVER, SIS
Christian basketball player Michael Modahl is now the second-leading scorer – boys or girls – in school history after passing his sister, Hannah.
Even though the senior missed all of last year because of injury, Modahl entered the weekend with 1,246 points, second only to Chad Wisse’s 1,436 in the early 1990s.
Modahl is averaging 26 points per game. He has scored at least 30 four times this season, highlighted by his varsity-best 38 on Dec. 9.
Three Sheboygan hockey players made the all-Fox River Classic Conference team. Senior defenseman Kip Humke, senior forward Blake Allen and freshman goalie Zane Vande Hey each earned honorable mention for the Red Raiders, who finished with a 5-19 record (0-6 in the league).
Humke led his team in goals (10), assists (11) and points (21).
Allen was second in all three categories (seven goals, 10 assists, 17 points).
And Vande Hey was, who had an .899 save percentage, is one of just four freshmen to earn all-FRCC (the others also received honorable mention).
PLAYOFFS ARE SEEDED
Despite being ranked eighth in the state, Lutheran was seeded fourth in the Division 5 playoff bracket that was determined by a computer for the first time.
Top-ranked Randolph got the No. 1 seed and was followed by No. 2 Oakfield and No. 3 Oshkosh Lourdes, but those two schools weren’t in the top 10 coaches poll as of last week and the Knights even had two more losses than the Crusaders.
Lutheran opens the playoffs Tuesday against visiting 13th-seeded Green Bay NEW Lutheran and barring an upset, will take on fifth-seeded Eastbrook Academy on Friday.
The winner of that game will most likely get Randolph in a regional final on Saturday.
Christian is seeded 15th and visits Oakfield in the first round.
DIVISION 1: North and South could meet in the playoffs if they each win on Friday.
Sixth-seeded North hosts No. 11 Milwaukee Riverside, but 14th-seeded South has to visit No. 3 De Pere.
