As we begin the new year we get closer to High School Basketball Tournament time.  Sports Director Mike Baker has his Wisconsin Dells Regional Tournament Backetology picks for this first week of January.  This is far from official but it is fun to prognosticate who the local teams will square off against come tournament time. Right now Mike has 1. Stratford, 2. WI Dells and 3. Mauston all receiving first round byes into the regional semi-finals.  Likely this will change over the weeks leading up to late February when the WIAA releases the official brackets.

  1. Viroqua 3-5
  2. Black River Falls 2-8


  1. Westby 6-3
