Warning... not a garden post!
Congratulations are in order for one of our school's winningest teams ever, even in the off-season. The Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association Academic All-State Team Award for student athletes was awarded to the Wild Rose Boys Basketball Team in Division 4. The guys managed a 3.69 grade point average. This was the second highest in the entire state across all divisions. What it doesn't say is that the team also included our Senior class' Valedictorian and Salutatorian (and probably next year's as well). They were two of our starters.
Not only were the guys back-to-back Conference Champs (21-4), they beat the only team to beat the Division 4 State Champions.
This team has been our school's dream team. We had high hopes of something a bit more golden sitting in our display case at the end of the season, but this is just validation for us here, during what was an incredibly long winter in central Wisconsin, that our boys are winners both on and off the court.
