Ozaukee High School guard Becca Schauer reached 1,000 career points as a junior and added another accolade to her season in being a unanimous choice for the Big East All-Conference team.

Schauer led the conference in scoring at 17.3 points per game, edging Player of the Year Makaylee Kuhn of Hilbert, who averaged 16.3.

Schauer also led the league in assists with 96 (6.0 per game) nearly doubling the next best total. Samanthan Renzelmann of Kohler and Ashley Gruman of Random Lake each had 54 (3.4 per game).

When Schauer wasn’t passing the ball, she was swiping it. She led the conference in steals with 82 (5.1 per game). That was 19 more than the second most, Renzelmann’s 63 (3.9 per game).

“She had a great season. In my opinion, she deserved to be the player of the year in the conference, although she didn’t win it,” coach Tim Wolff said.

For the Warriors, Schauer made things go.

“She was the person who made our offense run. Her court vision and unselfish play is what makes her so effective,” Wolff said.

This was the second consecutive year Schauer was a unanimous choice among conference coaches. She made the second team as a freshman.

Kuhn led the league in rebounds at 11.3 per game.

Schauer’s teammate Gabby Klas made the second team as a freshman.

Klas led the Big East in three-pointers, making 35. She shot 40.2% behind the arc — going 35-for-87 — which was third among players with 50 or more attempts.

“She exceeded the expectations I had for her being a freshmen coming in,” Wolff said. “Not only is she a really great shot, I was really happy with her ball handling skills and what she allowed us to do at the end of games. I think this is just the tip of the iceberg for her in our program.”

Cedar Grove-Belgium senior post player Ellie Felsinger made the second team after earning honorable mention last year.

She was eighth in scoring in the conference at 12.5 points per game and her 53.1% shooting was the best among players with more than 62 shots. Felsinger went 69-for-130.

“She was just a consistent scorer for us,” coach Jason Jones said.

Besides scoring, Jones said his inside force was competitive and a good passer, racking up 28 assists on the season.

Felsinger and senior Alex Mentink, Jones said, helped improve the team with their work in the offseason.

“They really kind of helped our program turn in a positive direction,” he said.

Mishicot won the 14-team conference with a 15-1 record. Howards Grove was next at 14-2. Ozaukee was fifth at 10-6, and Cedar Grove-Belgium was ninth at 8-8.
