Racine Lutheran High School’s Caroline Strande etched her name in the school record book with authority on Thursday night.

The junior guard nearly had a quadruple-double and set the school record for most career points in a 79-28 nonconference win over Living Word Lutheran at Racine Lutheran.

Strande scored 30 points, grabbed 11 rebounds, had eight assists and nine steals. She has 1,135 career points, eclipsing the previous record of 1,111 held by Kelly Sorenson since 1998.

“I saw the potential in (Caroline) when she joined the team her freshman year,” Crusaders coach Steve Shaffer said. “She does everything so well and it’s crazy to think that she still has another year left to play with us.”

Morgann Gardner and Jayden Davis added 20 and 13 points respectively for the undefeated Crusaders (6-0).

“Jayden had the best game of her career with us tonight,” Shaffer said. “She was playing hard on both ends of the floor and it was great to see.”

The Crusaders will face their toughest challenge of the season Saturday against undefeated Metro Classic Conference opponent Shoreland Lutheran, which features standout senior guard Chelby Koker.

WATERFORD 51, WILMOT 41: The Wolverines used a 13-0 run in the second half to win a Southern Lakes Conference game at Waterford.

Katie Rohner got in early foul trouble for the Wolverines (5-1, 2-0 SLC), but still scored a team-high 21 points and grabbed eight rebounds. Kathleen Fitzgerald added 17 points, eight rebounds and six blocks.

“The offense got a little stagnant when Katie had to come off the floor,” Waterford coach Dena Brechtl said. “We didn’t want to risk her picking a third foul in the first half so we sat her and got off to a great start in the second half.”

HORLICK 95, MILWAUKEE RONALD REAGAN 56: Marquise Milton had a game-high 21 points in the Rebels’ nonconference victory at Horlick.

After leading by just six points at halftime, Horlick broke the game open in the second half by turning up the defensive intensity, said Rebels coach Jason Treutelaar.

“We were taking too many chances on defense in the first two quarters,” Treutelaar said. “I told them to keep their guy in front of them and it paid off in the second half.”

The Rebels (1-2) also made a season-high 17 3-pointers. Haden Sollman had a game-high five 3s.
