Prairie girls trounce Platteville

The Prairie du Chien Lady Blackhawks clinched an opportunity for the sectional championship by dismantling the Platteville Hillmen 70-52 in a Division 3 sectional semifinal at Baraboo High School Thursday night. 

A close first half was succeeded in the second half by an avalanche of Blackhawk field goals that thwarted any chance of a Hillmen comeback.  

Brooke Trautsch led the Hawks with 24 points while Kelsey Achenbach added 21 points. Once again, Lindsey Welter contributed significantly off the bench, adding 15 points.
