Pius X celebrates the induction of the 1992 girls basketball team as one of the best basketball teams in the history of Thunderbolt athletics.

The Class of 1992 finished their career as part of a 94-4 varsity stretch that included four trips to the state championship and back to back state titles in 1991 and 1992.

The 25-0 campaign of 1992 came via an average per game score of 59-41. Seniors Steph Schug and Maura Dawson both averaged over 14 points per game to finish scoring careers of 805 and 788 points, respectively.

The skillful duo was joined by fellow seniors Carmen Easley, Michelle Metzger, Dana Seiler, and Lynde Thelen and underclassmen Maggie Easley, Joanne Groth, Chris Kapler, Cari Ortmeier, Michelle Rowe, and Emily Schultz. The 2016-2017 school year will be the 25th anniversary of the legendary 25-0 season that culminated with a 63-42 state championship over St. Paul.

Carmen (Easley) Sanchez Andrade – Class of 1992: “Two state championships and Coach Kelley. How lucky can a girl be? To be coached by a legend and play in some of the finest moments in Pius X women’s basketball is unbelievable for anyone who played in 1991 and 1992.”
