Heatin’ Up The Ice

by Nick Vitrano

With temperatures being what they have been over the last week, it’s only fitting that today’s WIXX Prep Pick takes us to the ice.  So don the pads, lace up your skates, grab a stick, and head out to the Cornerstone Community Center – the home sheet of the Bay Area Ice Bears. 

The Bay Area Ice Bears are a co-op girls high school hockey team, featuring the talents of 11 area high schools…and they are having one heck of a season.  Presently sitting at #2 in the rankings, the Ice Bears (11-1, 5-0) assumed sole possession of first place in the Eastern Shores Conference with a 2-1 victory over University School of Milwaukee last weekend.  Congratulations to all involved with the Ice Bears program and to Courtney Wittig whose go-ahead goal in that contest netted her a WisSports.Net “Athlete of the Week” nomination.

Best of luck tonight to the Ice Bears and to all of our area teams.  Keep the nominations coming HERE and don’t forget to #WIXXPreps your pictures on Instagram.
