Division 4 preview capsule: Colfax

Mar. 12, 2013
 
  • Filed Under

Nickname: Vikings

Head coach: Joe Doucette (456-80, 23rd season)

Enrollment: 231

Miles from Resch: 207

Season record: 25-1 (16-0, Dunn-St. Croix Conference)

State appearance: third

Last time at state: 2008 (D3 semifinal loss to Markesan, 41-35)

Notes: Notes: Colfax enters the Resch Center on a 17-game winning streak and is looking for its first win at state after falling in the semifinals in its previous two appearances. ... The Vikings’ starters are seniors Hannah Hover (7.0 points per game) and Ryleigh Prochnow (6.5 ppg), juniors Mallie Doucette (11.6 ppg) and Braanna Steen (9.4 ppg), and sophomore Dannielle Dachel (4.2 ppg). ... Players that see significant minutes of the bench include senior Brittany Rothbauer (2.6 ppg), junior Taylor Shipman (3.6 ppg) and sophomores Alexis Rudi (4.2 ppg) and Cheyenne Olson (3.6 ppg). ... Doucette, the coach’s daughter, leads the team in scoring, rebounds (4.5) and assists (1.8). ... Coach Joe Doucette’s other two daughters were on Colfax’s 2008 state team and both went on to play college basketball. Courtney wrapped up her senior season at Minnesota-Duluth, while Samantha was a sophomore for St. Scholastica this year. ... Prochnow, the team’s best defender, will likely be given the task of guarding Racine Prairie junior Gabrielle Ortiz in the semifinals. ... The Vikings shoot 32.3 percent from 3-point range (119-for-368).

Coach’s take: “If we’re going to have any chance at all it’s going to have to start with defending and rebounding,” – Joe Doucette, Colfax coach
