Coming Soon To A High School Near You

by Nick Vitrano

Last night was the end of the road for the Shawano boys in the WIAA 2014 Basketball Tournament, falling 45-32 to Rhinelander.  So let’s deliver some good news Shawano way this morning.  Today’s WIXX Preps Pick comes from Kylee Jones who wanted to spotlight some youth who are not yet high schoolers, but hey…they’ll be there soon enough.  Why are we always in such a hurry to grow up?

Our Shawano Hockey Squirt B Team is playing in Our State Tournament this weekend. I want to give a shout out to the coaches Eric Steffen and Tony Steffen and of course our AMAZING Squirt Hockey team. These kids are 9-10 year olds giving their all out on the ice. If anyone is in the area this weekend and wants something to do come on down to the Crawford Center in Shawano and watch these Squirts play their hearts out. I love our Hockey family.

Thanks for the nomination, Kylee!  Best of luck to all of our area teams and athletes this weekend.  Keep the nominations coming HERE  and don’t forget to #WIXX Preps your photos.
