Wausau— Take a look at the Team of the Week candidates and vote today!
Voting ends on Wednesday at approximately 5 p.m.
If you come across a great performance this upcoming week and feel that a team (or two) should be recognized, shoot us a tweet @centralwisco or drop us a comment on Facebook and we’ll take your nomination into consideration. Also check out past nominees and winners on the CWS Featured Athlete Page.
Marshfield Gymnastics– Marshfield came away with a first place finish at the Wisconsin Rapids invitational on Saturday as junior Grace Holland won the all around.
SPASH Boys Basketball– A lot of the preseason hype in the Wisconsin Valley Conference surrounded D.C. Everest, but the SPASH boys weren’t having any of it on Friday night as they toppled the Evergreens 75-51. SPASH is currently the only unbeaten Valley team at 3-0 as of January 6.
Newman Boys Basketball– Nominated on Twitter, the Cardinals picked up a big win against Abbotsford on Friday. The final for that one was 76-68 and Newman will look to use this victory as a springboard as we head into the meat of the season.
Wausau East Boys Swimming– The Lumberjacks picked up a big Wisconsin Valley Conference win over Wisconsin Rapids on January 3. The Jacks won by the score of 93-77.
Pacelli Boys Basketball– Don’t look now, but the Cardinals have won two in a row, knocking off Amherst on Dec 29 and downing Weyaywega-Fremont on January 4. next up for Pacelli is Wild Rose, holders of a 2-2 record in the CWC-South.
Wausau West Hockey– The Warriors were nominated once again this week, and it’s easy to see why. Down 0-2 to Marshfield on January 3, the Warriors fought back to secure a 4-2 win. A huge showdown with SPASH is on the schedule for this week.
Assumption Girls Basketball– The Royals are 9-3 overall after drilling Chequamegon 79-22. With a 6-2 record in the Marawood South, Assumption will be facing a huge test this week when they travel to Stratford to take on conference-leading Stratford.
Medford Boys Basketball– Medford got 20 points from Blaine Studinger as they came up with a big victory over Lakeland. The Red Raiders limited Lakeland to just 11 first half points in that contest.
