Goodhue vs. Caledonia

6:45 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 14

Goodhue has a much different look to its lineup a season removed from advancing to the Class 1A state championship.

The Wildcats (4-1, 2-0) graduated all-state center Lexie Lodermeier and all-state honorable mention guard Mention Kate Opsahl, but they've shown they have enough returning talent to win.

Elissa Lodermeier, a junior guard, has helped shoulder the load, averaging more than 13 points per game this season.

Caledonia will provide Goodhue an early season test as its opponent in the HVL-TRC (Hiawatha Valley League vs. Three Rivers Conference) Showdown at the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester on Saturday.

The Warriors (2-3, 1-2), who graduated seven seniors last spring, won 26 games a season ago, advancing to the Class 2A state championship. 

Haley Jennings, one of the team's returning regulars, averages more than 15 points per game.
