New Regime Arrives for MHS Girls Basketball


First year Head Coach Erik Loose has arrived, and he’s ready to get to work.The Muskego High School girls basketball team began conference play last Tuesday at Waukesha West, and they return home December 9th, to take on Mukwonago in their conference home opener.

The main goal for the Warriors this season is to create a strong bond between teammates, and learn to play together. Sophomore Autumn Dibb said “Our main team goal is to build chemistry and create a bond between all of our teammates.”“We’re a younger team and it’s a building year for us.”

Junior Addy Zacher added, “A lot of that will come from bringing in the younger players, building the chemistry, and creating a team like atmosphere.”

As advertised, the Warriors are a young team. They have just two seniors on the team, five juniors, and six sophomores. With all the young talent on the team, new Head Coach Erik Loose is very excited about the future of this program.

Having spent the prior 11 years at Waukesha South, Coach Loose is looking forward to becoming a part of Muskego’s system. “The culture of athletics here is huge” he said. “We’ve got a lot of excited and talented athletes ready to get to work and play together.”

One challenge Coach Loose acknowledged was the high level of play the Warriors will face in the Classic 8 conference. Arrowhead and Waukesha West are expected to provide tough competition, and the defending state champions, Kettle Moraine are expected to win the conference.

Despite the strong opposition, Loose is optimistic about the season, and expects to compete for a conference title. You can next see the Warriors play tomorrow at 7:00 against the rival Mukwonago Indians.
