The Prairie du Chien girls basketball team made sure that they overlooked their only scheduled game of the week when they traveled to Spring Green to take on the River Valley Blackhawks.

PdC used a 34-7 first half to build lots of space between themselves and the hosts before extending the game out in the second half on their way to a 63-20 victory.

A balanced scoring attack led the way for the Hawks as Greenlee Krahn  scored a game high 14 points to go along with her 7 rebounds, 6 assists, and 4 steals. Tessa Czajkowski Higgins (13 points and 5 steals), Tannah Radloff (8 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 steals), Karly Kramer (8 points and 14 rebounds), Rita Achenbach (7 points and 8 rebounds), Claire Kennedy (7 points), Camryn Knap (3 points), Brecklynn McCumber (2 points), and Emory Campbell (1 point) rounded out the Hawks attack.

The Hawks improved to 15-4 overall, and 6-1 in the Southwest Wisconsin Conference. Prairie currently sits a half game behind Platteville (7-1) with three remaining for the Hawks.

Two of the final three conference games take place this week as the Hawks will host Lancaster on Friday night and Dodgeville on Saturday night. Tip-off for the Lancaster game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m., while the Dodgeville game is scheduled for 8 p.m. 

The Hawks are also hosting a benefit at Friday’s home game with Lancaster for coach Jeff Sjoberg, who was bitten by an infected mosquito and contracted West Nile encephalitis. There will basket raffles as well as a 50-50 raffle to help raise money towards Sjoberg’s recovery and medical bills.
