SAUKE CENTRE – The Mainstreeters blew out the Wolverines 64-46 in Sauk Centre on Saturday., ending WDC’s 2022-23 regular season. The Wolverines finished 15-11 overall, 2-6 in section play and 9-5 in the Park Region Conference for a fourth-place finish.

“Tough one in Sauk Centre today,” WDC head coach Jordan Cresap said. “First half was a tale of runs. Started out slow, went on a run of our own, then had a couple of mental miscues that lead to a Sauk Centre run and a 31-31 halftime score. Second half we ran out of gas and couldn’t get any rhythm offensively while Sauk Centre’s guards kept putting a lot of pressure on our defense. Still think it’s a great learning experience for us as we head into playoffs next week. Glad we were able to make this game happen.”

WDC’s Addyson Gravelle finished with a team-high 19 points. Madison Carsten ended her night with 11 points.

Sauk Centre’s Cierra Kortan had 22 points and Torry Keufeld concluded the night with 18 points for a combined 40 points of the Mainstreeters' 64 points.
