Division 3 preview capsule: Lodi

Mar. 12, 2013
 
  • Filed Under

Nickname: Blue Devils.

Coach: Kristi Paskey (87-81, eighth season).

Enrollment: 531.

Miles from Resch Center: 133.

Season record: 24-2 (9-1, Capitol North Conference, first).

State appearance: First.

Notes: The Blue Devils are the only team among all the divisions in the tournament field making its first state appearance. … Lodi, who goes with a seven-player rotation, favors playing zone defense and is limiting teams to 37.5 points per game. … The team starts a pair of sophomore guards in Taylor Baker (12.2 points per game) and Meredith Gallagher (6.7 ppg), while junior Gretchen Schutz (11.1 ppg) and seniors Autumn Paulson (9.9 ppg, 6.3 rpg) and Sierra Jiran (8.4 ppg, 8.9 rpg) make up the frontcourt. … Baker was the Capitol North Conference player of the year. … Paskey said her team struggled against pressure defense in a 63-32 loss on Jan. 4 against Lakeside Lutheran, who it beat later in the regular season and in a regional final. … Lodi rallied for an overtime win over fourth-ranked Brodhead by forcing overtime with a pair of free throws. … The Lodi boys basketball team made its second state tournament appearance last week, finishing as the D4 runner-up.

Coach’s take: “(Kewaunee) has gotten that gold ball, it’s going to be a tough game for us. We’re pretty excited just to be there, and when you have a defensive-minded and well-coached team, it’s going to be a struggle. We’re looking forward to it.”
