Morton Lady Potters 21-22 Varsity Team

The 2020-21 Morton Lady Potters persevered during a challenging COVID pandemic season in which an entire conference schedule, along with a season ending Mid-Illini Conference tournament, was squeezed into an abbreviated six week whirlwind of a journey. The Potter varsity finished with a record of 14-3 with an 11-3 mark in the Mid-Illini which earned 2nd place. The team played their best while sweeping the inaugural, and hopefully only, conference tourney beating Washington in overtime 49-44 to finish the season as Mid-Illini Conference Tournament Champions. The team celebrated by cutting down the nets on our Potterdome floor.

Last season brought an end to the high school careers for graduated seniors Raquel Frakes, Caitlyn Cowley, Faith Hostettler, Sedona McCartney and Claire Reiman. The Potters will return 9 players from last year’s team, including Mid-Illini first team and All-State selection Senior Katie Krupa and 2nd Team Mid-Illini selection senior Maggie Hobson along with fellow seniors Paige Griffin, Paige Chapin and Maria Lopko, juniors Gaby Heer, Abbey Pollard and sophomores Addy Engel and Graci Junis. In addition to our returning players the Lady Potters add Mid-Illini first team transfer Tatym Lamprecht (Jr), Lydia Rogers (Jr), Isabella Hutchinson (So), Emelia Miller (So), Madgda Lopko (So), Anja Ruxlow (Fr) and Ellie VanMeenan (Fr). These 16 players will strive to carry on the traditions of Sisterhood and Excellence.

The team is excited about the prospects for the opportunity to play a full schedule of basketball and competing in front of cheering fans in the stands. Our Potterdome has a fresh look with new floor design and brand new bleachers! As always, your support and encouragement for our Lady Potters means so much to our student athletes and our program. We cannot wait to see and hear you back in the PotterDome!

Morton Lady Potters 68, Normal West 48 The idea is a Lady Potter throws a high lob toward the hoop. There Katie Krupa rises to catch it and drop it in. It’s a play called “Bradley” and everyone south of Chicago and north of St. Louis has seen it lots of times, way back to […]

The Morton Lady Potters have an educated eye watching and cheering them on this season!

davekindred2The renowned sports journalist, Mr. Dave Kindred has only missed a handful of Lady Potters games since he began attended them in 2010. Since moving back to the area after spending the last 45 years traveling the globe in search of yet another sports story, Dave has found comfort in being a "fan". He isn't sure how many times he had to repeat the line "I'm not a fan, I'm a writer" throughout his career. Being a fan can cloud the objectivity of capturing those wonderful sports stories we often read. But now, Dave feels at peace with just enjoying Morton Lady Potters basketball.

Lest you think Kindred’s work is a story of the past, think again. He has just finished writing 'The Un4gettables', which is the 4th book to chronicle the Morton Lady Potters' State Championship Seasons.  As director of the National Sports Journalism Center at Indiana University, he recently wrote for a weekly on-line column that has dealt with, among other topics, Twitter. For more information on Dave Kindred, the columns he's written, the books he's published and more, click here.
