Although the Madison College women’s basketball team is off to a 1-3 start to the season, one bright spot has been the play of Courtney Spangler.

The sophomore post player has proven to be a consistent scoring threat for the WolfPack, netting double digits in each of her team’s first four games.

In Madison College’s most recent game, Spangler had 29 points and 16 rebounds in a 75-67 loss to Gogebic Community College at the Men’s and Women’s Classic in Milwaukee on Nov. 10.

The game was a close battle, with Gogebic taking a 28-24 lead at halftime and holding off the WolfPack late in the game for victory.

Chelsey Schulenburg added 11 points, hitting three of four 3-point shots, and Terissa Bierd scored 10 points to provide some scoring balance for the WolfPack.

On Nov. 9, the WolfPack rallied to defeat Anoka-Ramsey, 56-53. Madison College outscored Anoka-Ramsey 32-24 in the second half to overcome a five-point halftime deficit.

Spangler and Alyssa Anding led the WolfPack with 12 points each, while Bierd added 11 points.

Madison College lost both of its game in the Sanford Worthington Regional Classic in Worthington, MN, Nov. 3-4.

In her team’s first game of the tournament, Spangler opened the season with a strong performance and scored 31 points in her team’s 68-55 loss to Minnesota West.

Ellyn Hayden added 12 points, but it wasn’t enough to overcome Minnesota West’s balanced attack. West had four players score in double figures.

In the second game of the tournament, Bierd scored 13 points and Spangler added 12, but it wasn’t enough avert a 63-48 loss to Riverland Community College.

The WolfPack opens its home season this week against Sauk Valley Community College at 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 14.
