Wausau West took home some t-shirts Monday night after fighting their way through Stratford, Merrill, and finally Mosinee to win the 18-team end-of-the-summer tournament. With a pair of 2018 Wisconsin Valley All-Conference selections, West is a program to keep an eye on. West competes in Division 1, as well as in the Wisconsin Valley Conference, where they come toe-to-toe with some of the toughest programs in central Wisconsin, including Merrill.
West started the tournament as a 4-seed after going 9-2 in regular league play. West clearly wasn’t satisfied with just making it to semi-finals. They battled through a tough Merrill squad, including Kelly Page (2021 – 5’5 – Setter/Pin Hitter) and Ellie Hartson (2020 – 5’9 – Setter/Right Side Hitter) who saw a lot of court time in 2018. This team did not have any 2022s on their roster last season, but with graduating 6 seniors, there should be quite a few spots to fill.
West is highlighted by one of only two all-conference 1st and 2nd team honorees with Robyn Kirsch (2021) of Wisconsin Ice 16 Purple. She is a 5’7 pin hitter
