Story By Joe Dufek


- The Winter Sports season is beginning to wind down. It's time to announce some of the Newswatch 12 Players of the Year for the Winter sports season.

In boys hockey, Chequamegon/Phillips junior Pierce Pluemer had quite a year for the Seals.

He scored 37 goals and added 35 assists for 72 total points. That's among the state's best.

He's also a 4.0 student and part of the National Honor Society.


Marshfield girls hockey star Paige Johnson was named Ms. Hockey at the state tournament. The senior defenseman scored 37 goals - had 21 assists for 58 points. In addition she has a 3.99 PGA and is also a member of the National Honor Society.

In Nordic Skiing, Lakeland's Delaney FitzPatrick dominated the competition. She was the state champion in both the pursuit and sprint events. She is also among the best in the classroom. She has a 3.94 grade point average.

In snowboarding, Rhinelander's Emily Babcock also captured gold this year. She won the girls state championship - just the second time in school history. Her sister Amy won the other one back in 2009.

The winners will each receive a plaque.

Next week, we'll announce our Players of the year in boys and girls basketball, gymnastics, wrestling, and boys swimming.
