Morton Lady Potters 2019-20 Varsity Team
The Morton Lady Potters finished the 2018-19 Season with a record of 33 wins and 3 losses and captured their 4th IHSA Class 3A State Championship in the last 5 years!!! The 2019-20 Morton Lady Potters team returns 8 players from that State Championship team, including All-Conference & All-Area players Lindsey Dullard, Courtney Jones, Maddy Becker & Katie Krupa. Prime time reserves Peyton Dearing, Raquel Frakes, Olivia Remmert, & Makenna Baughman also return and will be asked to help fill the void left by All-State guard Tenley Dowell (now playing for Butler University) and the Seniors that graduated last year. As with each season, all of the returning players will be asked to accept the responsibility of setting good examples for the younger players and pass along the Championship habits and Lady Potter traditions.
The Lady Potters will once again look to use their superior size, length, speed, shooting skills and relentless defense to help them dominate opponents as they try to battle their way back to Redbird Arena. This should be a very fun team to watch and we hope you all can come out and cheer on the team this season!!!

Morton’s Lady Potters 70, East Peoria 11 After a quarter, it was 25-2. At the half, 42-5. After three, 65-7. Yes, it sounds cruel. But what’s the good team supposed to do? Wear silver heels and prom dresses? Put on boxing gloves the last half? I guess they could carry umbrellas and before shooting ask, […]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 Unbelievables', which is the 3rd 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.
