The winter sports season is rolling along in the Stateline area for our local high school sports teams.
We’re looking for who had the best week and awarding them our Team of the Week honors and a $100 Visa gift card to use towards their program.
Is your team up for this week’s award? Vote in the poll below and share it so they can get their due recognition.
Another big shout out to Rock Valley College for sponsoring this winter long contest.
Each weekend through the winter season we will be taking nominations for the team of the week. You can nominate a team from Friday afternoon till Sunday night. Every Monday we will gather up the nominations and then put it up to a vote on the 1440wrok.com website.
The winning team will be announced during the morning show on WROK with RIley and Joe and receive a $100 Visa card for their program. At the end of the season, all weekly winners will go up against each other to be named Team of the Season and receive a $500 Visa card for their program.
Here are this week’s finalists:
- Freeport Wrestling
The Pretzel wrestling team made NIC-10 history when sophomore Cadence Diduch became the first female wrestler to win an individual wrestling championship.
- Boylan Girl’s Basketball
Paul Perrone, the long-time coach of the Boylan Girl’s, and Harlem Girl’s before that, basketball team secured his 500th varsity win with a victory over East Friday night. You can listen to some of Rockford’s basketball royalty talk about him here.
- Harlem Boy’s Bowling
The Huskie rollers find themselves on this list for a third straight week, and for good reason. The Huskies had another successful trip down state last weekend, placing second as a team and adding more hardware to the already stocked Harlem Bowling trophy cabinet.
Which team should win Team of the Week and the $100 prize?
