UWS Women’s Basketball honored by Chancellor, Mayor

Brad Phe­now — The Stinger

Even though their sea­son con­cluded nearly three weeks ago, the team was brought together again on Tues­day. The team was rec­og­nized by the Chan­cel­lor of the Uni­ver­sity, Dr. Renee Watcher, as well as Supe­rior Mayor, Bruce Hagan.

The Lady Yel­low­jack­ets were being hon­ored for their record-setting sea­son. The Wom­ens Bas­ket­ball team set three records this year, win­ning the most games in a sea­son (19), host­ing their first-ever home-playoff game, and fin­ish­ing as one of the top four teams in the Wis­con­sin Inter­col­le­giate Ath­letic Con­fer­ence (WIAC). This years impres­sive sea­son included wins over UW-Whitewater, UW-Stevens Point, and two over UW-Eau Claire (first time since 1987 that they had beaten the Eau Claire).

Mayor Hagan announced that March 12, will now be “UW-Superior Women’s Bas­ket­ball Day” in the city of Supe­rior, WI.
