Algoma's Taylor Schmidt has been selected as the top senior Point Guard as part of the WSN Senior Girls Basketball Awards.
Algoma has been ranked No. 1 in the Division 4 WisSports.net Coaches Poll for much of the season and Schmidt has been a big reason for that. The 5-5 senior fills up the stat sheet for the Wolves and will do whatever it takes to get the win.
She averages 12.5 point per game, including hitting the game-winning three-pointer to beat Packerland rival Kewaunee in December. The Wolves qualified for the state tourney this year and Schmidt was the Packerland Player of the Year. She averaged 4 assists per game as well.
After suffering an ACL injury in last year's playoffs, Schmidt battled back and played in every game this season. Schmidt also helped the Wolves to state runner-up finish in 2011.
"She's one of the toughest kids I know," head coach Mark Zastrow said of his senior point guard on the WIAA state conference call. "She really dictates how our team goes."
Finalists for the award were Schmidt, Riley Budde of South Milwaukee, Samantha Murray of Waunakee, Chelsea Nooker of Bay Port, and Jenny Tuttle of Mukwonago.
Nicole Bauman of New Berlin Eisenhower received the award last season.
