Nothing N.E.W About It

by Nick Vitrano

Prolonged success in any athletic discipline is no easy accomplishment.  Though seemingly effortless at times, winning (more often than not) proves fleeting, no matter how much sweat one dedicates…no matter how much talent one possesses.  Winning on any given night is tough; a winning season – tougher; a title – tougher still; a repeat – the toughest.  So let’s collectively tip our caps to this week’s WIXX Preps Pick: the Green Bay N.E.W. Lutheran boys basketball team.

With a 4th quarter rally over Algoma this week, the Blazers kept their conference mark unblemished (11-0) and improved to an overall 16-1, good for at least a share of their 4th consecutive Packerland Conference title…4th consecutive.  Solid.

Congratulations to all the folks at Green Bay N.E.W. Lutheran for your outstanding season and incredible run of success.  Keep your nominations coming HERE and don’t forget to #WIXXPreps your photos on Instagram to see them automatically appear on our website.  Good luck to all of our area teams this weekend.
