In WIAA Division 2 girls basketball, Jefferson defeated rival Fort Atkinson 51-40 in a regional quarterfinal Tuesday night at Jefferson High School.
“Our girls battled back,” Fort Atkinson head coach Michael Rajsich said. “We were down 18-2. It was probably the worst start we could have had. Anna (Schoenike) got two quick fouls and Tyla (Staude) got injured. But we settled in and found a way to claw back. Really proud of the effort.”
Up next for Jefferson is a regional semifinal at Elkhorn Friday at 7 p.m.
