Seymour's firepower too much for Pulaski
PULASKI (WLUK) -- It's pretty clear this season, when the Seymour girls basketball team steps on the court get ready for an onslaught.
Entering Tuesday's non-conference game with Pulaski the Thunder had scored at least 80 points in each of its first two games. With the likes of Hailey Oskey and Jenna Krause, Seymour's offense is one of the best in the area.
However, Tuesday the Thunder didn't reach 80 points, but there was plenty of examples of how good this team is offensively.
Oskey scored 20 points, Krause and Aubrey Buchholtz added 16 apiece and Raven Vandenlangenberg chipped in with 10 as Seymour beat Pulaski, 68-48.
"It's nice to have everybody be able to score," Krause said. "Anybody can hit any shot, we're all confident. We can all score. Everybody on our team has worked really hard in the offseason."
Seymour, ranked No. 4 in the FOX 11 Top 11, opened with a 19-9 run and later in the game, when Pulaski crept to within 43-40, the Thunder went on a 15-3 run to put away the game.
Oskey, a Green Bay commit, and Krause, a McKendree University commit, are the catalysts. Both can score form anywhere and do a good job of setting up others.
"They have to be two of the best in the area, for sure," Seymour coach Bobby Kuchta said. "The biggest thing is to keep them on the floor, out of foul trouble. They can both drive, they're strong and they can shoot the three."
Seymour's win Tuesday was the third straight over a Fox River Classic Conference team -- Seymour previously beat Ashwaubenon and Green Bay Southwest.
"To get this win gives our kids confidence going forward and into the playoffs and later in the season, too, knowing we may see this team again," Kuchta said.
Friday, the Thunder plays at West De Pere in a battle of the top Bay Conference title contenders. The Thunder is ready.
"Seymour hasn't won the Bay Conference since 1991," Kuchta said. "To do it, we know we have to knock off West De Pere. We know it's a big test for us."
"Playing West De Pere is always good," Krause said. "We're always really, really excited to play them. They're our conference rival."
