« Prep Picks

To The Ice

by Nick Vitrano

With Sochi in full swing, it’s only fitting that we take to the ice this morning.  Just a couple of weeks ago, today’s WIXX Preps Pick sat at 8-11-1.  Today, they sit atop the Badgerland Conference Tournament standings, following a dominating 5-0 blanking of Springs in last weekend’s final.

Congratulations to the Fond du Lac boys hockey team!

The Cardinals’ offensive numbers of late have been...well…downright offensive, outscoring their tournament foes 17-2 over three games.  As with any competition, it’s all about outscoring one’s opponent, though that end is best achieved by keeping one’s opponent from doing precisely that.  Equally as impressive as the team’s ability to put the puck in the net has been the manner in which they have minded their own. 

Momentum is certainly on Fondy’s side as they gear up for the WIAA State Tournament.  Their first crack at action will be next Thursday, though they still face a head-to-head with Bay Port tomorrow evening.  Good luck to the Cards and to all of our area teams.  Keep those nominations coming HERE  and don’t forget to #WIXXPreps your photos on Instagram.
