Zakowski ’82 takes-on Boyer-Rohde ’04 Thursday night

An astute Log reader pointed out a big game for Phoenix alumni. One of the WIAA girls sectional semifinals Thursday night will see Green Bay Southwest’s head coach Casey Zakowski against Notre Dame Academy’s head coach Sara (Boyer) Rohde. The game will be played at 7 pm, Thursday, March 5 at Green Bay Preble. Zakowski’s squad advanced with a half-court buzzer-beating win over Pulaski (where ’05 Chandra (Johnson) Francis serves as an assistant coach) on Saturday. All three of these coaches played basketball for the Phoenix and graduated from UWGB. Further connections — Kayla and Carli Borseth, twin daughters of Green Bay women’s basketball coach Kevin Borseth, are members of the NDA Tritons. Both teams are No. 2 seeds entering the sectional. NDA is the current back-to-back Division 2 State Champion.
