"I was impressed with the way we started out on Friday," Kettle Moraine first year head girls basketball coach Janine Emmer said. "This was a game where we went to the bench and players responded, giving us big minutes."
Emmer said she loved the tenacity of Fuller on the defensive end.
"Morgan Fuller continues to play extremely hard," Emmer said. "She's a tough defender.
Still without senior forward Olivia Weber, who suffered a high ankle sprain, have their work cut out for them with a trip to Arrowhead on Tuesday, but the team has been steadily improving.
