Division 4 preview capsule: Racine Prairie

Mar. 12, 2013
 
  • Filed Under

Nickname: Hawks

Head coach: Melody Owsley (299-239, 23rd season)

Enrollment: 265

Miles from Resch: 142

Season record: 24-2 (14-2, Metro Classic Conference, tied first)

State appearance: second

Last time at state: 2004 (Won D4 title over South Shore, 57-44)

Notes: The Hawks are looking to make it 2-for-2 at the state tournament after winning the D4 title in its only other appearance in 2004. ... Junior guard Gabrielle Ortiz averages 21.0 points and 4.5 assists per game to lead the team. ... Ortiz is considered by many to be the best player in the state and has 14 Division I college offers, having received her first two from the University of Wisconsin and Marquette before she played a high school game. ... In addition to Ortiz, juniors Kate Andreucci (11.9 ppg) and Megan Wolf (7.4 ppg) have also started since their freshmen seasons. ... Andreucci averages 7.1 rebounds to lead the team. ... Freshman guard Sammie Woodward (6.7 ppg) has returned to the starting lineup after missing 14 games with a hip injury. ... Forward Anna Gaertig (3.5 ppg) is a first-year starter and the only senior on the team. ... Racine Prairie shared the Metro Classic Conference title with Racine St. Catherine’s, who handed the Hawks their last loss (55-54) on Feb. 12.

Coach’s take: “She’s our go-to player but were not just a one (player) team of Gabbi Ortiz. We have good balance, and she makes us better across the board.” – Melody Owsley, Racine Prairie
