WAUSAU (WAOW)- The Wausau East boys swim team just won its sixth straight conference title.
A big part of that team's success has been junior Billy Brebrick, and we feature the Lumberjack star as our Newsline 9 Athlete of the Week.
Brebrick took home four first place finishes over the weekend at the Wisconsin Valley Conference meet in Stevens Point, two individuals in the 50 free and 100 fly, and two relays.
Those are certainly the types of performances he wants to have heading into the postseason.
Says Billy Brebrick, "It was really nice to be able to get a feel for the water and have some nice races, gain some confidence heading into sectionals. I think it was good to see everyone perform the best they could with how hard they've been training."
Says Brent Zinkel, "It is nice to have a guy like Billy who is very consistent and drops a couple seconds off his time each meet, he's dropping a little bit here and a little bit there. It is really nice to have a guy you can rely on to bring home a first place and pick up some points for you."
