WITTENBERG — Wittenberg-Birnamwood High School girls basketball player Abi Fraaza was named to the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association honorable mention team in Division 3 after a big junior season.

“It means so much to me to be able to be named WBCA honorable mention being a junior because with a great support system consisting of my parents, coaches and teammates, all the hard work pays off in the end,” said Fraaza. “But also I am going to keep pushing myself to work harder everyday to achieve the next level of first team all-state next year.”

Fraaza posted averages of 16.1 points, 10.8 rebounds, 5.7 assists, 3.5 blocks and 2.4 steals per game for a Witt-Birn team that went 22-2 overall and made it to the regional finals.

The junior scored in double figures in all but three of the team’s contests, shooting over 50% from the field along the way.

She scored 30 points in two games — a Central Wisconsin Conference-East Division game against Menominee Indian on Jan. 30 and in a regional semifinal playoff game against Clintonville on Feb. 28. Fraaza hit the game-winning shot as time expired against Clintonville.
