Playing By The Slogan

by Nick Vitrano

“There’s no substitute for excellence,” say the folks in and around Oostburg High School.  Judging by her start to the 2013-’14 hoops season, this Lady Dutch senior has fully bought into that mantra.  In this week’s WIXX Prep Pick, we turn our attention to the Central Lake Shore Conference, spotlighting Maranda Huibregtse.

Huibregste tipped off this year's campaign in impressive fashion, compiling a double-double (12 points, 10 rebounds) in Oostburg’s season opener against Whitnall, a 52-24 team victory.  She followed it up with another double-double against Waukesha West (17 points, 10 rebounds).  Game #3?  Well, not a double-double…nope…a TRIPLE-double (22 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists).  Next up, Ozaukee.  Another double-double (18 points, 10 rebounds).  Just four games in, Huibregste has compiled a season of statistical highlights. 

Congratulations to Maranda Huibregtse for her tremendous beginning, and to all the Lady Dutch for their 3-1 (2-0) start.  By the way, Huibregtse is up for the WisSports.net Athlete of the Week. Pop on there and give her a click.
