The 10U Johnson team bounced back from a tough Saturday schedule to play some of their best basketball of the summer on Sunday to place 2nd at the Noah's Ark End of Summer tournament in Wisconsin Dells. WHS came out firing, on Sunday, on both sides of the ball as they beat the Midwest Wildcats by 12 points, a team that would tie for 1st place with a win. Strong defensive pressure, along with making the extra pass on the offensive side of the ball, sealed the victory. In their second game, WHS controlled the game from the opening tip against the Wisconsin Academy; leading by double digits for most of the game. Again fueled by an outstanding defensive effort, WHS put together another solid offensive performance to claim 2nd place on the weekend. Great job boys and have a great rest of the summer. Go Hoops!

Conference Player Of The Year:
First Team All-Conference:
2nd Team All-Conference:
Honorable Mention All-Conference:
As Per Wisconsin Sports Network: Mark Miller
Roemer is a 5-11 point guard who can also play on the wing. A gym rat who developed into a consistent performer for coach Steve Collins at Memorial this season, Roemer averaged 6.6 ppg for a balanced and extremely talented team.
Roemer helped Memorial to the Big Eight Conference title and a 20-4 overall record.
"Reggie improved so much during the season, both offensively and defensively," Collins said. "Not only did he improve his outside shot, but, as the season progressed, he took the ball to the basket with a lot of strength and confidence. Defensively, he made a lot of improvement guarding the ball. He can guard bigger players. He also does an outstanding job guarding off the ball.
"I think Reggie will quickly work his way into a leadership position. He does a great job of being the conduit between coaches and players. He asks the follow-up questions ... the hows and whys ... and then does a great job of reinforcing those things with his teammates. He'll be that voice behind the scenes."
Conference player of the year Billy Bull took to the court this season to show the conference he meant business. The 6'3" Senior backed it up as he averaged 13.3 ppg with game high's of 28pts against Deerfield and 21pts against both Wayland Academy and Johnson Creek. Great job Billy, we can't wait to watch you at Edgewood College next year.
Reedsburg's Nate Runde finished off another stellar senior season averaging 14.2ppg and scoring 825 total points in his high school career. Nate will be taking his talents to Ripon College next season under the direction of Head Coach Ryan Kane. Congratulations on an outstanding year Nate, the Wisconsin Hoops Select family couldn't be prouder of your accomplishsments.
Nick Ptaschinski who is the states #34 leading scorer at 21ppg signed a letter of intent to play at NAIA Division 2 Northwestern College in Iowa next season. Nick is having a break out season for Wayland Academy shooting 45% from the three point line and hitting 60 three's already this season. Nick has 9 games with 20+ points including a 34pt night at Kenosha Christian Life. Congratulations Nicks, the WHS family is proud of you.
Madison Memorial's Daurice Fountain has signed a National Letter of Intent to play football and run track at the University of Northern Iowa. Fountain a 6 foot 3 inch wideout caught 48 passes for 782 yards and 10 touchdowns in 10 games last season. Fountain is also a solid contributor on the basketball team with his lock down defense, scoring 6ppg for the Spartans. Great Job Reece, we can't wait to watch you at the next level. #WHSproud

17u Johnson - Milwaukee Spring Shootout Champions
5-10 – Madison Memorial HS – Fitchburg, WI
Roemer did a nice job of creating offense for himself Friday afternoon. The 5-10 point guard excels at breaking down his defender off the dribble and either getting all the way to the basket, or pulling up for a jumper. Roemer scored 24 points in the loss to Quad City Elite.
Jake Grebe - WHS Alumni going up for 2 of his team high 7 points at the WBCA All Star Game
WHS Basketball Alumni Jake Grebe (Fall River) was selected to this year's Division 5 WBCA South All Star team. Jake led the South squad in scoring with 7 points in a narrow loss to the North team in a game played in Wisconsin Dells. After the game Dennis Semrau of the Wisconsin State Journal posted on Twitter "Player I wish I could have seen more of this season: Fall River 5-10 guard Jake Grebe, a scrappy player with an endless motor".
