(WAOW) - Each year, the W-I-A-A recognizes the top student athletes in Wisconsin and Sunday, five from our area were honored for their achievments on the field and in the classroom.
Merrill's Sam Arneson, Liz Breu from Auburndale, Newman Catholic's Megan Connolly, Rib Lake standout Daniel Petkau and Gilman's Corey Tallier were five of the 32 scholar athletes honored today at the Jefferson Street Inn.
Nearly 800 students were nominated statewide. The five from central Wisconsin combined to earn 48 varsity letters and each finished with a GPA over 3.5, so it's no surprise they're all excited about their accomplishments.
