Local prep sporting events to watch this week


Girls basketball: Almond-Bancroft at Tri-County, 7:30 p.m. Tuesday: In one of the feel good stories in the area during the winter sports season, the Penguins are off to a 9-1 start and in contention for a Central Wisconsin Conference-10 championship. Tri-County will look to continue its outstanding play against its rivals from 5 miles down the road. Freshman Amber Baehman and senior Isabella Weekly have been the catalysts for the Penguins. A-B would like nothing more than to play a spoiler.

Wrestling: SPASH at Wisconsin Rapids; 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln High School: A Wisconsin Valley Conference championship — at least the dual meet portion of the title — could very well be on the line when the lone remaining unbeaten teams take to the mat. The Raiders edged the Panthers 34-33 last year after SPASH recorded just its second dual meet win in the series since 1964 a year earlier.

Boys hockey: Sauk Prairie at Pacelli, 7 p.m. Friday, Ice Hawks Arena: After running off six consecutive victories the Cardinals suffered through a tough week that included losses to Waupaca and Oshkosh. Pacelli will look to get things straightened out on defense after surrendering a combined 15 goals in those losses. Luke Yenter, who has a team-high 19 goals, and Chris Karch continue to pace the attack with 31 and 22 points, respectively.
