Storm-West a family affair down at state in Madison


By Russ Owens

(WAOW)-  The Central Wisconsin storm is set for their third straight trip to the state tournament in Madison.  The ladies are one of three local teams heading to compete in the boys and girls brackets.

As For the Storm, several players share more than just a spot at state with one boys' team.

Three Storm players have brothers who play for Wausau West.  Claire and Sarah Poirier have brother Rob, while Haley Fochs has her brother Troy.

It makes for some pretty good sibling rivalry on the ice.

Says Haley Fochs, "Yeah Troy and I both kinda fight against each other and compete to see who can do better."

Says Sarah Poirier, "There is a little bit of a rivalry, we both want to do as good as we can, but we both want to see both of our teams do well."

Says Claire Poirier, "I think there's more of a rivalry between Sarah and Rob but we just want to see each other do good."

Sarah, "It will be fun to cheer each other on."
