Bauer wins Athlete of the Week

High School Sports

WATSEKA (WCIA) — Watseka basketball standout Kennedy Bauer is the WCIA 3 Athlete of the Week. The Lady Warriors senior recently scored her 1,000th career point, leading the team to a No. 5 ranking in the state and a 20-2 record.

“It’s actually really cool because I’m only like the eighth or ninth person to do it for the girls in Watseka Community High School, so that’s kind of cool, I get to leave my name back in the record books,” Bauer said. “This is one of our best years, we just kind of all click, and it’s really like a team game for us this year.”

Bauer is now eligible for a $500 scholarship we’ll give away to one weekly winner in December. To vote for the next Athlete of the Week, click here:
