Few teams get to experience a 14-game winning streak in a season. New London-Spicer's run of success heading into this week puts the Wildcats in rare company as they race towards the postseason.
New London-Spicer, which lost 55-50 to No. 1-2A Sauk Centre on Dec. 19, has been dominant and unblemished ever since. A stellar defense has helped the No. 4-2A Wildcats hold opponents to an average of just 40 points per game.
The offense isn't so bad for the Wildcats, either. With Emma Hanson, Erin Kinsley and Mackenzie Rich each averaging double-digit point totals, New-London-Spicer (20-1, 11-0) looks to keep its win streak going, and take a big step toward wrapping up the Wright County Conference West Division title with a win Friday over Watertown-Mayer.
The Royals (17-5, 9-1) have had a solid season of their own, going on a seven-game winning streak since losing 73-60 on Jan. 16, which was when they last faced New London-Spicer.
Junior Maggie Czinano can help Watertown-Mayer hold off opponents with her scoring abilities. She has reached the 30-point mark in multiple games this season.
