HOUSTON, Michigan – The Michigan Tech women’s basketball team had an outstanding 2022-23 season, posting a 25-7 record and advancing to the NCAA Midwest Regional. Despite suffering their only back-to-back losses in their final two games, the Huskies showed resilience and determination throughout the season.
With a strong core of returning players and a promising group of newcomers, the Huskies are poised for another successful season. Their goal is to win the GLIAC Tournament and go far in the NCAA Tournament.
Veterans Return to Lay a Solid Foundation
The Huskies have an experienced lineup that includes four of the top five scorers from last season. While they will miss guard Ellie Mackay and her 13.5 points per game, a trio of starting guards in third-year senior Isabella Lenz, fifth-year senior Alex Rondorf and fifth-year senior Katelyn Meister have returning. Senior forward Sarah Dacus joins the trio to provide the Huskies with a strong starting lineup.
Lentz emerged as the team’s leader last season, becoming the team’s scoring leader with 13.8 points per game. Rondolph’s poise and defensive urgency make her a valuable asset to the team, while Meister’s unselfishness and footwork make her a threat on both ends of the court.
Despite standing at just 6-foot-1, Dacus excels as an inside player. Her hard work, toughness and versatility make her a key factor in the Huskies’ success.
Newcomers bring new energy and talent
Alyssa Wypych, Dani Nuest, Maggie Napont and Brittney Mislivecek are all vying for playing time and could make a big impact this season.
Wypych’s versatility and defensive prowess could earn her a consistent spot on the roster, while Mislivecek’s shooting ability and Nuest’s potential as a point guard make them valuable additions to the team.
Home opener for new season
The Huskies’ season will kick off this weekend when they host William Jewell and Lewis. Both games will tip off at 6 p.m. at SDC Arena.
With talented players, an experienced coaching staff, and a strong home-court advantage, the Michigan Tech women’s basketball team is expected to make a big splash in the 2023-24 season. Fans are encouraged to cheer on the Huskies to another championship.
