Story By Joe Dufek


ANTIGO - Only one other time has the Phelps girls basketball team won their regional final. That was in 2006.

The next game, the Lady Knights lost in the sectional semifinals.

Last night in Antigo, they had another shot at making history.

But unfortunately for Phelps, history repeated itself. The Lady Knights fell 48-30 to Newman Catholic in the Division 5 Sectional Semifinals.

Newman Catholic scored the first nine points of the game and never looked back.


Phelps cut the lead to 9-4 in the first quarter. However, that is as close as the Lady Knights could get. They trailed 13-4 after the end of the first quarter.

Newman Catholic improved to (19-7) and will face Hilbert in Saturday's Sectional Final in Waupaca.

Phelps ends the year at (18-8).
