VERONA - Monroe senior Gwen Sutter and Brodhead senior Dana Lewis are AAU basketball teammates in the summer. Come the winter and tournament time, the two are rivals. Sutter and Monroe senior Jamie Armstrong sparked the Cheesemakers to a 54-41 win over Lewis and Brodhead to win the WIAA Division 2 Verona regional championship Saturday. "It's definitely a double-edged sword to win this game," Sutter said. "It's fun to win, but tough to beat a friend. We were excited to come back to Verona. We had a really bad game the last time we played here. We wanted to have a second shot playing in this gym."
