KIMBERLY (WLUK) -- Maddy Schreiber and Callie Genke had impressive freshmen seasons on the basketball court, each averaging more than 11 points per game and with their success they became Division I college prospects.

Genke's first offer came from Louisville and she has followed with offers from Green Bay, Wisconsin, Iowa and Marquette. Meanwhile, Schreiber has offers from Green Bay and Wisconsin.

According to jrallstar.com, Genke is the top-ranked player in 2021 class, while Schreiber is No. 2 and Kaukauna's Chloe Van Zeeland No. 5.

This week, all three are in California at an All-American camp and likely will gain more recruiting attention.

"I enjoy it a lot but I have to keep myself calm and collected, I guess you can say," said Schreiber, who averaged 11.8 points per game last season. "It's kind of nice because it shows that I've been working hard and it pays off."

"I wasn't really expecting the first one (Louisville offer), I was really surprised and it was really cool to get the first one," said Genke, who averaged 13.6 ppg. last season. "I'm excited for the future and look forward to play in college."

Schreiber said she's only reached this point because of hard work.

"I knew I had to work hard to get where I wanted to be," Schreiber said. "I've been trying to work harder. I felt like last season was pretty good and if I keep working hard something good can come out of it.

Freedom coach Mike Vander Loop has a front row seat for Genke's games and is also impressed with Schreiber.

"I've watched the kid play," Vander Lopp said of Schreiber. "She's got the frame and the athletic ability. Watching those two go at it is good basketball and is good for each of those two girls."
