Whitewater handed Elkhorn a 57-44 defeat in Southern Lakes girls basketball Monday to set up a regular-season grand finale against Division 2 sixth-ranked Delavan-Darien for a share of the conference championship.

Whitewater (16-3, 9-2) put Elkhorn away with a 14-0 fourth-quarter run. The Whippets led 39-37 after three quarters, but they stung the Elks (10-8, 6-5) with a 18-7 advantage in the final period.


Whitewater’s Megan Theune sank three of her five three-point goals in the fourth quarter and finished with a game-high 19 points. Courtney Trewyn had two key baskets in the final period for her only points, while Leah Harms had a 14-point game. Harms and Chelsea Heil also made two key steals during the winning surge.


Elkhorn’s Carly Larsen scored 15 points and Cassi Weiler chipped in 11.
