They Pack A Powerful Sting

by Nick Vitrano

The unmistakable grayish-brown, honeycombed material of the paper wasp is a fairly easily remedied nuisance to the homeowner.  A little spritz of wasp/hornet spray, wait a few minutes to make sure nobody returns angry, then flick away what remains with a stick.  Done.  Disposing of the 2013-’14 Kimberly Papermakers girls basketball team?  A bit more difficult…impossible, in fact.  To date, no one has been able to do so.  As a result, they once again top the WisSports.Net Coaches Poll in Division 1…and are this week’s WIXX Preps Pick.

A well coached team by Troy Cullen, Kimberly possesses a balanced offense and smothering D, capable of quite literally shutting out opponents for entire quarters (just ask Oshkosh West).  Congratulations to the Papermakers on your unblemished start [14-0 (10-0)].  Best of luck this weekend, and the same to all of our area teams.  Keep the nominations coming HERE  and don’t forget to #WIXXPreps your pics on Instagram to have them instantly appear on our Prep Picks Page.
