Algoma High School

Algoma girls continue hot stretch

The Algoma High School girls’ basketball team beat another team ahead of them in the Packerland standings Friday night, defeating Southern Door, 54-46. The Wolves have struggled offensively in recent weeks even as their fortunes have improved on the court. They had to turn that around after trailing 26-18 at the half. Algoma exploded for 36 in the second frame.

Senior guard Chloe Spitzer led the way with 20 points. Nicole Norton had a team-high 15 for Southern Door. Algoma has now won four straight conference games and is only a half-game back of fifth place. Southern Door is fourth in the Packerland, a game back of Gibraltar and Peshtigo.

Algoma’s next game is Monday when they host Sturgeon Bay. An Algoma win gets them back to .500 after a terribly slow start to the season. Southern Door plays at Gibraltar Monday.
