Girls Basketball Thursday night in a non-conference matchup against Elkhorn, the Angels girls basketball jumped out to a 10 point lead in the 1st half and also took a 7 point lead into halftime. In the 2nd half the Elks of Elkhorn would cut that lead to within 4 points before the Angels turned it back on to cruise to a 56-43 victory. Aniyah Price and Laila Collier-White each led the scoring with 20 points a piece while Emmerson Davidovic and Ariana Green played a fantastic game defensively. Saturday afternoon the Lady Angels traveled to Racine Lutheran for a Metro Classic Conference game. Unfortunately for the Angels the ball didn’t fall the way they wanted and couldn’t get any momentum as they lost to the Crusaders 56-32. Lailia Collier-White led the team with 13 points, Kennedee Clark added 7 and Ariana Green had 5. Clark led the team with 7 rebounds while Green and Collier-White each had 6.

Boys Basketball Wednesday night the boys basketball team traveled west to face off against Westosha Central in a non-conference basketball game.

Davion Thomas-Kumpula led all players with 15 points, 5 rebounds and 3 steals. Dominic Pitts added 13 points and Evan Moherek had 8. After suffering a tough loss on Wednesday night the boys basketball team was looking to bounce back with a great performance, and they did just that on Friday night at home against Racine Lutheran. The Angels got off to a hot start as they led 48-24 at halftime. From there they only gave up 13 points in the 2nd half to cruise to a 88-37 victory. Lamont Hamilton led all scorers on the evening as he poured in 23 points, Davion Thomas-Kumpula followed with 19, Evan Moherek had 17 and Isaiah Wray had 12. Isaiah Wray led the team with 13 rebounds while Dominic Pitts led the team with 5 steals and 5 assists.
