Wausau West girls team heads to state tournament


By Heather Sawaski

WAUSAU (WAOW) -- The Girl's WIAA state basketball tournament kicks off Thursday. And for one Wausau team, the road to Madison is making school history.

It's the Wausau West girl's first ever trip to the tournament. Wednesday morning, the community came together to give them a proper send off. The girls are hoping the cheers, signs, and support will follow them down to Madison.

"We're all really excited about making history by being the first team to go down," said Jessica Waldvogel. "We just want to get down there and hopefully keep playing, not just go down and play one game."

"It's very exciting," said Alex Nickel. "The girls haven't had that in awhile and it's a great experience because you always get to watch the Badgers on TV. It's a big court and a big place."

The Warriors play Middleton in the first round Thursday night at 8:15 p.m.
