It was an unforgettable season for the Lady Wolves.
Clarkston Girls Varsity Basketball team.
The Clarkston Girls Varsity Basketball team lost six seniors from their 2011-2012 season. Many saw it as a rebuilding year as they saw it as keeping the momentum going.
They won 20 consecutive games before their season ended, with a 22-2 record.
They claimed their third consecutive district championship by defeating Oxford, 36-17, and Lake Orion, 50-16.
Before they began the playoff season they won their second consecutive OAA Red league title after winning the last game of the regular season against Pontiac. The win put them undefeated in the OAA Red, 14-0.
"I am really proud of them," said head coach, Tim Wasilk. "They had to beat teams twice and go on the road to some tough opponents' gyms."
The Lady Wolves finished their season in the regional finals with a 40-37 loss to Birmingham Marian.
"It was a great season," said Wasilk. "Our girls far exceeded expectations I had for them and they probably had for themselves. The team chemistry was great. It was a great team to coach. I couldn't be happier for these kids."
The team graduates three seniors - Erin Davenport, Delaney Kenny and Patrice Matthews.
"Our seniors did a heck of a job," Wasilk added. "What those girls have meant to our program is beyond words. We wouldn't be even in this game if we didn't have those three on the floor and in the program. They are great kids. I am excited for their future."
They have nine returners coming back - freshman Mariah Hood; sophomores Jessica Altene, Erika Davenport; juniors Remia Bryant, Alaina Cook, Haley Daugherty, Carly Giroux, Katelyn Kuenzel and Kacy Robinson.
