Janesville Craig stand tall in Big Eight

Janesville Craig stand tall in Big Eight

This year, Janesville Craig girls basketball won their first Big Eight championship since 1980.

A conference championship is a tall order, especially considering the Cougars don’t have a player taller than 5’10”.

Craig has used their on-court chemistry to offset their lack of height. Senior Alison Hughes says their chemistry was obvious from the start of the season. 

“Even before our first game, just from last year, we knew there was just a click with this team.”

That chemistry has paid off in the form of a number one seed in this year’s high school basketball playoffs. Now, head coach Kerry Storbakken says they have their eyes on another championship.

“They want nothing more than to make a good run in the tournament and get to Green Bay.”

The state tournament is in Green Bay March 12-14.
