Okay, so usually I don't put much thought into the girl's side either mostly because there are only two teams in the conference with any ability...BUT as usual IM BORED.

Cuba and Mp, same story every year. Can Mp finally win? All I know is they have a very talented player in Kacy Sporle! The Cubans of course will be led by Pustina, Gleason, Pustina, Moore, oh hell, EVERYONE!

Mp will be led by Sporle, Schmitz, Lawinger, Bennett, those four are the ones with the most experience coming back from last year....
Just what The Dr. ordered!

Oostburg beat Division 1 #3 ranked Sheboygan North last night 46-39. So, I know the Lady Cubans are a very good team but, any team is beatable on any given night

From the TH[/align] [/align]Cuba City back for more[/align]Cubans have shot at 3rd straight state title[/align][link=http://www.thonline.com/contactstaff.cfm?articleid=139057]by ERIN MURPHY[/link][/align] [/align]














The 2006-07 Cuba City Cubans girls basketball team is long on two things: experience and accomplishments.

So coach Jeff Pustina was concerned that, coming into this season, he might have to invent ways to keep his players - most of whom played key roles on consecutive WIAA Division 3 state championship teams - focused and unsatisfied.

As it turns out, that has not been a problem.

"Coming into this year, I thought I would have one of the toughest jobs I've had in a while as far as trying to keep these kids motivated, keep them hungry," Pustina said.

"But dealing with the quality of kids we have, they just go about their business and I've been very impressed. I don't think I have to do as much as I thought I would.

"The work ethic is there, the determination and the desire are there."
Well, so much for about the only hope Cuba City opponents had left to cling to this winter. While Pustina and his team will certainly maintain their focus on the present, everyone else wearing black and gold is thinking history: the Cubans












can - and will be favored to - join Milwaukee Washington (1994-96) as the only school in WIAA history to win three consecutive girls basketball state championships.

Cuba City is already the only team in state history to repeat twice (1990-91, 2005-06). In the past two seasons, the Cubans were a combined 53-1.

"The kids seem to be focused and working hard at the things we're throwing at them," Pustina said.

Only one starter, Elizabeth Wisdom, is gone from last winter's powerhouse. Back are five players who started at least 12 games, including past TH players of the year Tami Gleason (6-foot-2 post who averaged 9.2 points per game after returning at mid-season from a shoulder injury) and Molly Moor (point guard who averaged 8.3 ppg).

Also back are guards Kaitlyn Pustina (9.6 ppg) and Brianna Droessler (6.3 ppg) and 5-10 post Briana Kaiser (5.6 ppg).

First-year coach Damian Droessler inherits a veteran Southwestern team, led by returning first-team all-SWAL guard Chelsey Droeszler. Also among the seven returning seniors is 5-11 forward Brittany Batteram.

Droessler takes over for longtime coach John Klein, whose contract was not renewed after a 2005-06 season during which he earned his 400th career victory.

Mineral Point is a popular pick to give Cuba City its biggest conference challenge. The Pointers' only two league losses last season came to the Cubans, and Point returns first team all-SWAL players Kacy Sporle and Liz Lawinger.

Darlington, led by 5-10 senior forward Danielle Ruf, is also a popular preaseason pick as a much-improved squad.[/align]
