Held to five points in the first half Monday night, Union Grove High School senior Brooklyn Bull scored 12 of her game-high 17 points in the second half and made history in the process.

The 5-foot-8 Bull became the all-time leading girls scorer in school history, surpassing Kaleigh Veltus’ record of 1,133 points in Union Grove’s 63-40 Southern Lakes Conference victory over Elkhorn at Elkhorn.

Bull needed 10 points to tie Veltus’ record. She reached that in the third period, then added another seven points to take over the top spot with 1,140 points in just three seasons on the Broncos’ varsity team.

“She’s been such a huge part of our program,” Union Grove coach Rob Domagalski said of Bull, who transferred to Union Grove from St. Catherine’s before her sophomore season. “It’s been a pleasure watching her grow as a player.

“This is just a huge achievement. We’re proud of her and proud of her accomplishment.”

With Bull and fellow seniors Baylie Weis and Alyssa Kus leading the way, the Broncos (17-3 overall, 11-1 SLC) maintained their lead over Burlington (10-2 SLC) atop the SLC.

Union Grove, which moved up a spot to ninth in Division 2 in this week’s Associated Press state poll, plays at Delavan-Darien Tuesday, then finishes regular-season play Friday at Lake Geneva Badger. Burlington finishes with games Tuesday at Westosha Central and Thursday at home against Delavan-Darien.

“You’ve got to give Elkhorn credit,” Domagalski said of the Elks (9-11, 4-9 SLC). “They slowed the pace of the game down. It just seemed like we couldn’t gain momentum in the first half.”

Domagalski credited Weis and Kus for sparking the team in the first half. Weis came off the bench and scored 10 of her 14 points in the first half and Kus added four points in the first half as the Broncos took a 30-25 lead. Weis also led the team with nine rebounds.

Bull wasn’t the only Bronco to step up big in the second half. Angela Slattery scored 11 of her 16 points in the second half to help Union Grove pull away.

MILTON 74, WATERFORD 49: The Wolverines had a 20-16 lead late in the first half, but Milton grabbed momentum with the help of a couple of 3-point baskets and went on to beat Waterford in a nonconference game at Milton.

Waterford coach Dena Brechtl said Milton (9-11) took advantage of the Wolverines’ “lack of discipline and lack of ball control” during that stretch to turn a deficit into a 10-point halftime lead.

Milton hit five 3-pointers in the first half. Emma Martin had two of them and added another 3-pointer in the second half en route to her game-high 21 points.

Kat Fitzgerald helped get the Wolverines (5-14) off to a solid start, scoring 10 of her 12 points in the first half. Annie Benavides sparked the team in the second half, scoring six of her 10 points.

“We did get a little outmuscled,” Brechtl said.

FRANKLIN 51, HORLICK 36: The Sabers made seven 3-pointers to pull away in a Southeast Conference victory over the Rebels at Horlick.

Five of those 3-pointers came in the first half as Franklin (12-9 overall, 10-3 SEC) raced to a 31-14 lead.

Horlick coach Ambrial Miller said the Rebels (8-11 overall, 6-6 SEC) tried to battle back in the second half.

“Every time we would chip away and get back in the game, they would hit a big 3 and pull away,” Miller said.

The game was called with 2:31 left because of water leaking onto the floor from the roof, Miller said.

Olivia Pitrof led the Rebels with 14 points, including a 3-pointer in the second half. Jordann Ellison added 13 points and Ellison and Pitroff led the team in rebounding with five each.

DOMINICAN 69, PRAIRIE 48: A cold spell early in the first half wiped out a 12-8 Prairie lead and the Hawks couldn’t recover in their Metro Classic Conference loss to Dominican at Whitefish Bay.

“We had our moments,” Prairie coach Alan Mills said. “We had an early lead at 12-8, but then we just went cold shooting for awhile and started turning the ball over.”

Mills said Dominican (16-4, 11-3 MCC) was missing four players from when the teams played earlier in the season. But Mills said “they’re just phenomenally fast” and utilized that speed to pull away from Prairie (5-16, 3-12 MCC).

Abby Decker led Prairie with 19 points. Brooke Foster added 11.

“It was nice to see Abby Decker shoot the ball well again,” Mills said.

Jolie Larson led Prairie with eight rebounds.
