Morton Lady Potters 22-23 Varsity Team
Last season the Potters finished 29-6 and 3rdPlace at the State tournament. They won their own Thanksgiving tournament, earned another Mid-Illini title and preserved through tough regional, sectional and super sectional play to advance to the final four for the 8th time in Potter history. Each step of the way the team showed more and more determination and connectedness. This was the 6th time in the last 7 state tournaments the Potters have played on the last possible day of the season. In 2020 the Potters finished with the 2nd most wins in IHSA history (37) finishing 37-1, including a Regional Championship, a Sectional Championship, a Super-Sectional Championship, IHSA Class 3A State Runner-up, as well as Undefeated Champions of the Mid-Illini Conference, State Farm Classic Large School Champions & Morton Thanksgiving Tournament Champions.
This year the Potters will look to return 10 players from last season’s State 3rd Place campaign. They are hoping to build a team driven to work hard and improve daily. The mission, in part, for every Lady Potter team is to respect the Potter traditions and successes of the past yet forge ahead to work and leave their own positive legacy. Expectations are always high and we are optimistic we have what it takes.
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!

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.
