Limoseth eclipses 1,000-point scoring mark, Pirates move to 9-1

December 19, 2018

HORICON — Senior guard Brittney Limoseth scored a game-high 24 points and went over 1,000 points for her career as Waterloo’s girls basketball team improved to 9-1 with a 55-32 nonconference win over Horicon on Monday.

Limoseth reached the milestone early in the second half.

“It’s a credit to the entire team,” Waterloo girls basketball coach Gabe Haberkorn said. “They are a part of her success. We have a great group of seniors. To have one of them reach a milestone like that is phenomenal.”

Waterloo took a 26-14 lead into halftime and extended it down the stretch.

“They came out in a 2-3 zone,” Haberkorn said. “We started to destroy it. The girls worked it really hard. We were getting a lot of rebounds. We got up by 17 points and they got out of it. They went man and it was over. They couldn’t stop us.”

Waterloo collected 40 rebounds. Senior guard Kaitlyn Filter had eight of those rebounds. The Pirates came up with 13 steals while committing just four turnovers compared to 25 for Horicon. Senior guard Katie Kuhl added nine points. Senior point guard Samantha Battenberg had eight points and four assists. Senior forward Melanie Renforth had five assists.

Waterloo hosts Wisconsin Heights on Friday to open Capitol South play.
