Irish get conference win
By Greg Seubert
Finding a way to score points has been a problem this season for the Waupaca girls’ basketball team.
The Comets hosted Freedom Dec. 19 in North Eastern Conference play and came out on the short end of a 58-30 score.
Freedom scored the game’s first 11 points and took a 34-17 lead into the locker room at halftime.
Waupaca never got any closer than 16 points in the second half.
Emma Smidt led Waupaca with 16 points, while Taylor Haase led three players in double figures for the Irish with 19. Callie Genke and Gabby Johnson added 11 and 10, respectively.
Waupaca will host Denmark at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 5.
