Morton Lady Potters 20-21 Varsity Team
The 2019-20 Morton Lady Potters put together a historic season that included a school record 37 wins (2nd most in IHSA history) & a return trip to Redbird Arena for the Final 4 & a State Runner-up finish. The 2019-20 Lady Potters won 6 Championships, along the way to their 37-1 season, including the Morton Thanksgiving Tournament Championship, State Farm Holiday Classic Championship, Mid-Illini Conference Championship, Regional, Sectional & Super-Sectional Championships.
Last season's Lady Potters team graduated 7 Seniors, including All-Conference/All-State players Lindsey Dullard (C), Courtney Jones (C), Peyton Dearing & Maddy Becker (C), as well as prime time reserves Olivia Remmert (C), Makenna Baughman & Abby Steider. This Senior Class of 2020 had unprecedented success for the Lady Potter Program, finishing their careers with a record of 135-8, including 2x IHSA State Champions & a Runner-up trophy. Jones, Dullard, Becker & Remmert had a perfect Conference record (56-0) in their 4 years with the Potters, which had never been done before. Some pretty big shoes to fill indeed!
However, it seems that each year, the Lady Potters graduate great players, and then a new batch of Lady Potters step into those roles and achieve their own success. This season the Lady Potters will return All-Conference/All-State Junior starter Katie Krupa, as well as Seniors; Raquel Frakes, Cailyn Cowley, Sedona McCartney, Claire Reiman & Faith Hostetler, Juniors; Maggie Hobson & Paige Griffin & Sophomore Gaby Heer. They will be joined by first year varsity players Paige Chapin (Jr), Maria Lopko (Jr), Abbey Pollard (So), Addyson Engel (Fr) & Graci Unis (Fr). They will look to carry on the traditions of Sisterhood & Excellence.
With the adversity & challenges that 2020 has presented, we are all very hopeful that these Lady Potters get the opportunity to show what they can do. As always, your support & encouragement for the Lady Potters means more than you can imagine. As you have proved every year... Potter Fans are the BEST!!!
Morton’s Lady Potters 55, Dunlap 44 We could start with the Potter dad who came out of the bleachers during live action and loaned his mask to his freshman daughter, Addy Engel, after hers fell apart. Dad’s nice work was rewarded when Engel made three big plays when the Potters most needed three big plays. […]Read More
The Morton Lady Potters have an educated eye watching and cheering them on this season!
The 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.
