No. 7 Lady Kits tip-off against No. 6 New Trier tonight

No. 7 Lady Kits tip-off against No. 6 New Trier tonight


After falling to No. 6 New Trier in the beginning of the season, the No. 7 Wildkits will look to even the season series against the Trevians and capture the CSL South title.

The Wildkits have had an impressive 2015-2016 campaign, maintaining a dominant 20-3 record. The Kits are 8-1 in conference play, their only conference loss was to New Trier on Dec. 16. To add to their impressive resume, the Kits won the Lady Saxons Thanksgiving Tournament, and took home fourth place honors in the Montini Holiday Tournament.

Juniors Leighah Wool and Krystal Forrester, both SIU-Carbondale recruits, have made a big impact in the girls success this season. Wool and Forrester, who are both above six foot, have been a dominant force on the boards and in the post.

Allysah Boothe, a 5’2 junior guard, has been another major contributor for the Kits, scoring 18 points in the Wildkits’ 60-35 blowout of Waukegan on Jan. 22.

A key focus for the Kits tonight will be locking down 6’3 forward Jeannie Boehm. Boehm, a Harvard commit, was recently named to the 2016 McDonald’s All-American team. A beast on both sides of the ball, Boehm has been unstoppable this season, leading the No. 8 Trevians to a 21-4 record.

“We’ll probably double team her in the post to keep her scoring to a low,” said junior guard, Allysah Boothe.

If the Kits can keep Boehm’s dominance to a minimum, a CSL South title will be in their reach.
