16.    Congratulations to Grant Fischer, our Badger Athlete of the Week.  Coach Larsen says Grant is a great leader for us on and off the court.  He makes sure he gives it everything he has every day as well as motivating others to do the same.  He is a great student, player and role model for all of our student athletes.

17.    Congratulations to Logan Cate for being our Badger Scholar of the Week.  Mrs. Kilmer says Logan has, without question, been unbelievably dedicated in his pursuit of scholarships.  This is not always an easy process, and often students will submit application after application not knowing if they will be rewarded for their diligence.  He hasn't given up though, and I admire his tenacity.  His work was just rewarded with the prestigious Horatio Alger Association Scholarship.  Congratulations - I am so proud of you, Logan!  You certainly deserve it!
