(WAOW) - Wittenberg-Birnamwood High School Senior Rick Parker has signed with UW Marathon and will join the men's basketball program. Parker averaged almost 19 points and 9 rebounds a game for the W-B Chargers. He shot 60% from the field and had a season high game against Gillett where he scored 42 points. Rick's impressive numbers helped earn him 1st team honors in the CWC-8, as well as being selected as a Channel 7 All-Star.
The Huskies are coming off a struggling 14-11 season but it was highlighted by a Western Division title in the Wisconsin Collegiate Conference (WCC). "Rick will be a tremendous asset to our program. He brings in size and experience" remarked Huskies mentor Bill Gibbs. "Rick is not unfamiliar with our gym. He's played four years of high school summer league basketball here".
Parker is an honor roll student at Wittenberg-Birnamwood high school. He plans to major in Biology. He is the son of Rick (Sr) and Tammy Parker of Wittenberg.
