Senior forward Ella Grote will be counted on for a little more offensive production for the New Prague girls’ basketball team during the 2013-14 season.
Grote averaged a little more than five points as a junior. She scored a season-best 11 points on two different occasions.
She already topped that output this season with a 12-point performance in a 61-51 victory over Jordan in a nonconference matchup. She is averaging a little more than six points per game through the first two weeks.
The Trojans, coming off a 22-7 season in 2012-13, have won three of their first four games this year. They are ranked No. 12 in Class 3A by Minnesota Basketball News.
The 5-8 Grote is also a member of the Trojans’ cross country and track teams. Here is a closer look at Grote:
