Lake Superior State Women’s Basketball Prepares for 2021 Season

SAULT STE. MARIE – Lake Superior State is hoping for better fortunes in 2021-22 after an injury-riddled 2020 season resulted in a 1-18 record.

Traverse City Central alum Margot Woughter was one of the key players who went down early last season. She is back this year and so is Mattison Rayman, who was Second Team All-GLIAC last year.

“It was a tough year. We were no different than everybody in the country. It was tough for everybody dealing with coronavirus and all the protocols,” said head coach Brandon Lokken. “The one thing I say is I’m so proud of our girls. Easily, in the midst of that type of season and the injuries we faced, they could have quit. They could have said they wanted to be done for the year. And we didn’t. They were resilient. They came back every day. I know it didn’t show up in the record, but I’m really proud of them for that.”

Lake Superior State lost its lone exhibition game 79-70 to Alma College. The regular season begins Nov. 12 against Cedarville.
