Athletes of the Week: Witt-Birn. Chargers


The Wittenberg Birnamwood girls basketball team is two games from the state tournament.  

The Chargers' leading scorers in the two playoff games so far has been junior Savanah Vera and senior Danika Decorah.  The duo has benefited from coach Mike Baliett's pregame preparation.  

The team watches tape before heading to practice in the gym.  When they're there the Chargers play against former players, who return to help toughen up the girls.  

Another key to the Chargers' success is the depth.  Witt-Birn. runs a bench that goes ten deep with a balanced scoring attack.  

This pair was part of the Chargers team that reached the sectional final just two seasons ago.  
And they said that experience will help them this weekend at sectionals.
