Wisconsin Sports Network is proud to showcase the WSN High School Basketball Awards.
The finalists for the top senior point guard award have been selected. Winners are announced the week of the state tournament.
Bailey Butler, Black Hawk - Butler has an amazing 101-1 record as a varsity basketball player at Black Hawk, with the only loss coming in her freshman year when the Warriors fell to Bangor in the Division 5 state title game. She averages more than 29 points per game as a senior, with 7.8 rebounds and 8.5 assists per contest as well. She had a quadruple-double on January 4th against Albany with 23 points, 16 rebounds, 15 assists, and 10 steals, and added a triple-double later in the year.
Nikki Dienberg, New Berlin Eisenhower - Dienberg helped the Lions to a share of the Woodland-West conference championship and trip to sectionals, as Ike is 22-4 heading into its game against Kewaskum. A 5-7 senior point guard, she leads the team with 13.6 points and 3.1 assists per game, averaging 6.0 rebounds per contest as well. She's an excellent shooter, making more than 41% of her three-pointers and 76% of her free throws.
Olivia Gamoke, Onalaska - Gamoke, a 5-6 senior committed to Division 2 Sioux Falls, has led the Hilltoppers to a 15-3 record heading into sectional action. A 1100-point scorer for her carrer, she really picked things up this season, averaging more than 20 points per game. Her versatility shows as she averages 5.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 4.1 steals per game for Onalaska.
Natalie Jens, Beaver Dam - Jens is a four-year varsity contributor at Beaver Dam, where the Golden Beavers have experienced an incredible amount of success. Her role increased substantially this year after the injury loss of Maty Wilke, as Jens became the primary scorer, averaging nearly 17 points per game. The Division 2 Minnesota-Moorhead recruit averaged 2.7 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game as well.
Isabella Lenz, Prescott - When it comes to production, few can match the output of Isabella Lenz. With more than 1800 career points, she's averaging 21 points per game as a senior. She also adds 7.6 rebounds, 5.0 assists, and 2.8 steals per game.
Olivia Rangel, Franklin - Not only has Rangel been on varsity for all four years, she's averaged double-figures each season as well. That includes a career-best 18.7 points per game as a senior, with the Sabers sitting at 13-5 in advance of tonight's sectional semi-final against Kenosha Indian Trail.
CJ Romero, Brookfield Central - Romero has seen plenty of action on varsity in four years, but her senior season has been a true breakout. Increasing her scoring average nearly ten per game, she is averaging 19.2 points per contest while shooting 53.9% overall, 43.9% from behind the three-point line, and 74% from the free throw line.
