Wausau (WQOW) -- Western Wisconsin was well represented during the 2015 WIAA Scholar Athlete Award Banquet held Sunday.
Of the over 800 students who applied, just 32 were selected. Western Wisconsin boasted three recipients, including: Kal Gerber (Cameron), Chloe Wanink (Cameron), and Bryce Niemi (Owen-Withee). Gerber says it's rewarding to be honored for his work on and off the field.
"It's an awesome honor." says Gerber. "When I was a freshman, I finished the year by making it to state in wrestling and with a 4.0 GPA. My father put this goal in front of me, saying if you keep your grades up and you keep doing well in sports you have a chance to win this honor. Being here is just a perfect end to my high school career."
