Nickname: Fighting Cardinals

Head coach: Tom Weinkauf (320-54, 15th season)

Enrollment: 156

Miles from Resch: 97

Season Record: 20-7 (10-4 Marawood Conference, third place)

State appearance: 10th

Last time at state: 2012

Notes: After a slow start to the season, Wausau Newman has won 12 of its last 13 games, including eight straight coming into its State semifinal matchup with fellow Marawood Conference South Division foe Assumption. Newman Catholic and Assumption split the season series, each winning on its own home court. The Fighting Cardinals are quite balanced on offense, with six players averaging 6.5 points or more, led by senior guard Kimberley Steif. Steif averages 13.3 ppg and is the only player averaging double figures for the Fighting Cardinals. This is Wausau Newmans fourth straight State appearance and 10th overall , winning the Division 4 title in 2010 and the Division 5 championship in 2011. The Cardinals earned this trip to State by defeating Phelps in the Sectional semifinal before defeating Hilbert 60-32 in the Waupaca Sectional championship. Wausau Newman is the only team in the field unranked, as Assumption, Barneveld and South Shore are ranked 2, 3, and 4, respectively in the latest Division 5 rankings.

Quote: Weve never had a game at the Resch Center so I really dont kow what to expect there. But you know, once 1:35 p.m. on Thursday rolls around its still a basketball game and well just have to play good basketball. Coach Weinkauf on playing at the Resch Center at State for the first time.
