Four recruits to join Green Bay Phoenix women’s team
GREEN BAY – Head coach Kevin Borseth and the Green Bay women’s basketball program announced the addition of four recruits from the 2021 class.
Bailey Butler, Callie Genke, Jenna Guyer and Maddy Schreiber will join the Phoenix next season.
“We’re excited about our 2021 class,” Borseth said. “These young ladies demonstrate the skill level, work ethic and character consistent with Green Bay basketball.”
Butler, from Black Hawk High School in South Wayne, is a 5-foot-7 guard.
“I chose Green Bay because of the atmosphere, location and educational programs,” Butler said. “Growing up in a small community, I’ve been supported and well-known throughout my high school career. The Green Bay women’s basketball program feels like a family.”
Butler was an all-state selection in 2019 and was a part of her team’s WIAA Division 5 state championship the same season.
“Bailey has a high basketball IQ and a great ability to pass,” Borseth said. She’s a tireless and unselfish worker. She also has an infectious personality that her teammates gravitate toward.”
Genke is a 6-foot guard currently attending Freedom High School.
“I chose Green Bay because the coaching staff is great, on and off the court,” she said. “They have a great winning tradition and care about the players off the court. Green Bay is also close to home, so I can be close to family.”
Genke is a two-time all-state selection.
“Callie is highly motivated and continues to seek out challenges to make herself the best she can be,” said Borseth. “She’s a student of the game who understands the importance of bringing passion to the court. When I think of Callie, I think of shooting and defense. Her size and versatility on both ends of the court make her a perfect fit for our program.”
Guyer attends Centennial High School in Circle Pines, Minnesota.
“I felt a connection with the Green Bay coaches,” said Guyer, a 6-foot-2 center/forward. “As soon as I talked with everyone about their vision for me, I knew I’d love to play for them. They will push me and help me excel in my basketball career.”
Guyer was a AAAA all-state honorable-mention choice last season.
“She’s a great leader who her teammates look up to,” Borseth said. “She drives and challenges herself daily to be her best. While she exhibits phenomenal basketball skills and output, her devotion to her teammates and team play makes her a perfect fit. She embraces the back-to-the-basket mentality, yet is versatile with how she can stretch defenses with her ability to shoot from the perimeter.”
Another local talent, Maddy Schreiber, currently attends Kimberly High School.
A 6-foot guard/forward, Schreiber was an all-state honorable-mention selection last season.
“Green Bay felt welcoming and is a family environment,” Schreiber said. “I know I’ll be pushed to be my best. I love their style of play, the winning tradition and the way the community supports.”
Borseth said Schreiber’s athletic ability drew the team to her.
“She can score on all three levels,” he said. “Her basketball IQ and work ethic make her a special player. Her versatility on both ends of the floor makes her a matchup nightmare. Her work ethic has put her in the spot she’s in today.”
