Resch is 'perfect setup'

Local fanatic pleased with debut

Mar. 14, 2013
 

ASHWAUBENON John Cardoni is serving as an unofficial welcome wagon at the Resch Center today.

As someone who lives a block away and is a self proclaimed “basketball junkie,” Cardoni is a welcoming presence for visiting fan bases at the first WIAA girls state basketball tournament held at the facility.

He spent a good portion of the first game at the tournament greeting and talking with the fan bases of Wisconsin Rapids Assumption and Wausau Newman Catholic, who were competing against each other in a Division 5 semifinal.

“It’s a perfect setup,” said Cardoni, who has lived at his nearby residence since 1969.

“There’s plenty of parking, there’s restaurants close by, there’s hotels. It’s just a great place for it.”

Cardoni has attended boys and girls state basketball tournaments in the past and feels the WIAA and PMI Entertainment Group made a strong first impression.

As a season-ticket holder for the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay women’s basketball team, he said his weekend is set between watching the girls state tournament and the Horizon League tournament at the Kress Center.

“Between here and watching the (UWGB) girls plays, this is a beautiful weekend for basketball.”
