Milton junior earns Badger South honor
Morgan Blumer’s incredible season didn’t go unnoticed in Badger South Conference girls basketball.
The Milton High junior is one of three unanimous selections to the All-Badger South first team. Blumer joins Monona Grove sophomore Ashley Nelson and Madison Edgewood junior Amanda Kelm as unanimous picks. Milton sophomore Sydney Harms was also named to the first team.
Blumer started the season strong and ended with a flourish. The 5-foot-11 forward had 32 points in the season-opening win against Monroe and finished the year with 35 points in a sectional loss to Fort Atkinson. Blumer had a career-high 44 points in a regional win over Stoughton and finished with a 20.3 scoring average. This is the second straight year Blumer was named to the first team.
Harms helped lead the Red Hawks to a second-place finish in the Badger South. The 6-0 center reached double figures in scoring in 12 games, including a career-high 20 in a nonconference win over Elkhorn.
Milton juniors Liz Westrick and Stephanie Stair were honorable mention, along with Fort Atkinson’s Lauren Pfeifer and Amber Foerster.
