It was a Senior Night to remember at the BDHS Fieldhouse Thursday night as the three-time defending state champion Beaver Dam girls basketball team blew out Reedsburg 90-42. Beaver Dam trailed 7-5 about four minutes into the game and then exploded out on a 42-6 run to close out the half with a 47-13 lead. The Golden Beavers (Overall: 19-3, Badger North 14-0) buried 17 three-pointers on the night, which is one shy of the school record. Jada Donaldson led the way with 17, while Natalie Jens added 12 and Maty Wilke 11.
Beaver Dam has now won 86 straight conference games and 11 straight conference championships.
On Senior Night, the team honored players Carley Burkhardt, Grace Madeiros, Anna Streblow and Jada Donaldson for all they have done on an off the court during their involvement in the basketball program. Senior manager Andrew Wallace was also honored for all he does for the program.
The night also was the first game that coach Tim Chase was officially back on the bench after taking medical leave to recover from colon cancer surgery.
Beaver Dam has the #1 seed and a first round bye in the WIAA Division Two playoffs which begin on Tuesday. They will host either Port Washington or West Bend East on Friday, February 28th.
