Feb. 2, 2017 – There’s a chance to see Madison Baker in action tonight as the West Bend West girls basketball team hosts Wisconsin Lutheran. Tip off is at 7:15 p.m.
Check out a nice article on Baker by Lily Mottet in the latest issue of The Current.
Mottet sat down with Baker, who has become a valuable center for the girls varsity basketball team. “Wisconsin Sports Network reports Baker is the third best rebounder in the state,” according to Mottet.
A portion of her article is below….
According to WisSports, Baker averages 16.7 rebounds per game. As there are still four games left in the season, there may be some fluctuation in the rankings before season’s end.
According to head coach Bernie McCarthy, this season is the second best season West girls has had in the past 10 years. One reason for this success is Baker’s ability to rebound.
In the four years that McCarthy has been coaching girls varsity basketball, he has not had a player that has been on any of the WisSports ranking lists. Baker’s achievement is made more remarkable because she is a ninth grader playing varsity.
