Girls’ hoops searches for “40 for 40” team

The upcoming 2013-14 Wildcat girls’ basketball season will mark the 40th year of the program at WHS. To celebrate this milestone, the Wildcats are asking fans and community members to nominate players to be named to the “40 for 40” team.

A committee of Wildcat basketball historians will convene in early November to sift through the nominations and select the top 40 players of the first 40 seasons of Wildcat girls’ basketball.

The “40 for 40” team will be announced in a November issue of the Waconia Patriot, and the players will be recognized at the Wildcats’ Dec. 28 game against Waseca.

Nominations need not consist of only the top scorers or ‘star’ players, but fans are also encouraged to nominate players that may have made an impact with their hustle, work ethic, or team spirit.

Please email nominations to coach Carl Pierson at [email protected] or via US Mail to Coach Pierson, Waconia High School, 1400 Community Drive, Waconia, Minn. 55387.

When submitting a nomination, please include the player’s maiden and/or married name, what years she played for WHS, and a line or two about why she stands out as one of the top players in Wildcat girls’ basketball history.

The deadline to submit nominations is Friday, Nov. 1.
