Wild Rose boys edge closer to conference title


By Russ Owens

(WAOW)-  The Wild Rose boys basketball team finds itself a game and half up in the Central Wisconsin 10 conference, the Wildcats coming off a big road win over Rosholt on Thursday night.

That same Rosholt team beat Wild Rose the first time around handing the Cats their only loss of the season.

The team is now 17-1 on the season and glad to have the momentum at the right time heading toward a conference title.

Says Head Coach Jim Komp, "When you have a two game lead coming into the last couple weeks of the season, we have to play extremely well to finish it. We didn't come this far not to finish it, so we talked about it in the lockerroom, don't relax, don't celebrate, we won a big game but we haven't won the season yet, but it does give us a lot of momentum heading into the tail end."

Says Junior Jake Thompson, "It's big, but we gotta close out the season though, it's a big win, but we gotta get conference so we gotta get four more wins. We're a tough team so we gotta play hard and keep our head up."
