More Love For The Pozolinskis

As mentioned in the previous post, Brett and Nate Pozolinski have had quite the busy few weeks. After qualifying for the NCAA National Championships in Eugene, Ore., the Pozolinskis had a media day of sorts up in their home town of Kimberly, Wis.

Two written stories - one in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and the other in the Appleton Post-Crescent - hit newsstands Wednesday morning. You can see both of those stories here.

But that wasn't all. Time Warner Cable's JP Cadorin also made the trip to talk to the two soon-to-be-crowned All-Americans, with his story debuting Tuesday night on Sports Weekly. That video is now available online and can be seen here: http://www.twcsportschannel.com/videos/2016/06/10/wi-pozolinski-brothers-training-for-national-meet

Pozolinski Media Day

Late last week, after brothers Brett & Nate Pozolinski both punched their tickets to the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships, the brothers essentially held an impromptu media day of sorts while preparing to compete at nationals.

Now, those interviews have turned into previews and feature stories about the brothers as they get ready for the biggest meets of their young lives.

First, the Appleton Post-Crescent's Tim Froberg caught up with both brothers while practicing at their home track in Kimberly, Wis. about what it means for both brothers to make nationals at the same meet. Check out his story, including video interviews with both brothers, here: http://www.postcrescent.com/story/sports/college/2016/06/07/pozolinski-brothers-compete-ncaa-meet/85568964/

The Pozolinski's also chatted with Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Lori Nickel. Nickel writes about the brothers' connection, passion for a sport that doesn't always get the most praise and what the future holds for the talented duo.

"Two-Sport Steph"

Milwaukee sophomore Steph Kostowicz garnered lots of attention during the women's basketball season; and rightfully so! The Franklin, Wis. native helped lead the Panthers to their best season in 10 years, being named First Team All-Horizon League along the way.

But, while the basketball season has been finished for a little over a month now, Kostowicz hasn't slowed down. That's because she's now turned her attention to track & field, where she excels in throwing events for the Black & Gold.

Fox 6's Tim Van Vooren caught up with the busy Kostowicz earlier this week to see just how she is able to do it all.

Pozolinski Breaking High Jump Records

Milwaukee senior Brett Pozolinski has quickly made quite the name for himself. While he's been a
notable high jumper for the Black & Gold the past 3-plus years, Pozolinski has taken his game to the next level in his last collegiate season.

The senior from Kimberly, Wis. has broken both school records in high jump and posted the team's best ever finish at the NCAA Indoor Track & Field National Championships earlier this year, being named First Team All-American after finishing fifth in his event.

Time Warner Cable's JP Cadorin caught up with Pozolinski and his talented coach, Garrett Huyler, at practice last week to talk about what has made this season so successful.

Koss Doesn't Let Deafness Slow Him Down

Don't try to adjust the volume. When the Horizon League Network met with Taylor Koss earlier this year, they wanted to try to tell his story in a unique way - just as he would hear it.

Koss - a senior on the Milwaukee track & field team - is deaf. But that hasn't slowed down anything. Well, except how he almost missed out on a chance to join the team.

Lindner, Roenneburg Helping Rebuild Panther Program

The Milwaukee women's basketball team has had loads of success this season, and they certainly wouldn't have gotten where they are with out two underclassmen from Northwestern Wisconsin.

Sophomore Jenny Lindner and freshman Emma Roenneburg have both played big roles for Milwaukee over the season and ready for the start of the Horizon League Tournament with the semifinal on Saturday.

With Lindner and Roenneburg hailing from the same part of the state, their local paper recently caught up with the hometown heros heading into Saturday's big game up in Green Bay.

"But another program is quietly ascending as two local players, Neillsville native Jenny Lindner and Adams-Friendship graduate Emma Roenneburg, have helped the Panthers to their best season in a decade," writes Mitch Skurzewski of the Marshfield News Herald.

Skurzewski talked to the two young Panthers and head coach Kyle Rechlicz about a variety of topics, including playing AAU ball together, recruiting and what it's been like moving to a big campus in a bigger city.

Vote For Jenny!

Last week was a big one for Panther basketball player Jenny Lindner. The Neillsville native was named Horizon League Player of the Week after a career week on the court. Now, Lindner has the chance to earn even more hardware, but she needs your help.

HeroSports.com has their weekly list of the top performances in college from the previous week and Lindner is on the list.

Fans can vote for Lindner as one of the 10 candidates for the weekly award.

Lindner was huge for Milwaukee last week, netting a career-high 32 points - including 16 in the final quarter - to help spark UWM past Oakland in a 98-95 thriller. She was also big on the defensive end, grabbing six rebounds and nabbing three steals. All of that was part of Milwaukee's clinching win that locked up the No. 2 seed in this weekend's Horizon League Tournament in Green Bay.

Then, with the seedings already locked in, Lindner had yet another impressive showing in a narrow loss at Detroit. The sophomore had a team-high 20 points to go with seven rebounds and another three steals in just 29 minutes.

Fans can vote until next Monday at HeroSports.com.
