Hannah Kath tallied 17 points and Vicki Jansen 10 points as the Muskego girls basketball team downed Kenosha Indian Trail 54-33 in a WIAA Division 1 regional contest March 4.

The victory was the first of the season for the Warriors, who had lost 13 games by 10 points or less this season.

This time, Muskego took control early, outscoring Indian Trail 26-12 in the first half. The Warriors then wrapped up the game with a 16-4 fourth period.

Chelsey Witkowiak added eight points and Dani Abella seven points for Muskego.

On Friday night, Muskego faced top seed Janesville Craig and was again competitive before falling 46-35.

The Warriors fell behind 16-4 after one quarter but then steadied and played Craig basically evenly the rest of the way.

Kath scored 11 points, Emily Schulte 10 and Abella nine points for the Warriors. Alison Hughes collected 18 points for Craig, which improved to 20-4 and will face Mukwonago in a sectional game March 13.

Kath, a freshman, led Muskego in scoring this season with 8.2 points per game and Schulte was next at 7.4.
