Bauder is averaging more than 15 points per game, and in Woodmore’s last three games, she has scored 18, 19 and 22 points against Genoa, Lake and Otsego.

ELMORE, Ohio – The Woodmore girls basketball team is gearing up for a big contest on Saturday, a battle for first place in the Northern Buckeye Conference.

The Wildcats are 10-0 this year, and a big reason for that is their senior star Macy Bowder.

Bauder was first team all-league and first team all-county last year as a junior. We expect the same this year.

She is averaging 15.5 points per game and has really come into it lately. In the last three games, she scored 18, 19 and 22 points against Genoa, Lake and Acego, respectively.

“I’ve definitely grown, I’ve got a lot more confidence in my shot this year, so I’m more of a threat offensively,” Bauder said. “Instead of just driving, I’m able to pull up and shoot. It’s helped me a lot to have coaches with that confidence.”

“She’s been an important player in our program since her freshman year,” Woodmore head coach Kyle Clare said. “This year, she took on a leadership role. I think she took some responsibility for the team, was a little more active than last year. It’s just been a great career for her and she’s really putting the finishing touches on it as a senior.”

Woodmore would like to finish the league schedule undefeated and win the NBC title outright, but they will have to get through this tough test in Fostoria first.

“We’ve wanted this for the last four years,” Bauder said. “Sophomore year we tied it, but we want a chance to get it for ourselves this year. It’s really exciting that we have this opportunity.”

Macy Bauder is Dave’s Athlete of the Week.
