The Wolves opened last week with a 65-43 loss to Southfield.
“Southfield was a heck of a team,” said John Weyer, head coach. “We were able to hang with them the first quarter, but they are listed as the best team in Division 1 right now.”
They defeated Stoney Creek for the second time this season, 43-37.
“Stoney gave us a hard fought game which was really good for the girls going into districts,” Weyer added.
The girls received a bye for the first round of districts and will play in the semifinals on Wednesday against Waterford Kettering at Lake Orion High School, 7 p.m.
“If we are shooting and our shots are on, we have a really good chance to win it,” Weyer said. “Kettering is probably the favorite with their leadership and they have been playing together for years. But they have had an up and down season, too.”
The winner plays in the district final on Friday, 7 p.m.
