Franklin Seventh Grade Boys Make Final Four at WSICT

April 21, 2014


The Franklin 7th grade boys basketball team participated in the Wisconsin State Invitational Championship Tournament in La Crosse on March 29 and 30, 2014. This tournament, which was organized by The Great Northwest Basketball League, brought together 94 of the top community-based 7th grade boys basketball teams from all across the State of Wisconsin. State champions were crowned in four divisions: Division 1, Division 2, Division 3 and Division 4/5, based on the enrollment of the high school into which each team feeds.

The Franklin 7th grade boys team played in Division 1, finishing in 4th place. The results of Franklin’s seven games were as follows:

Pool Play
Kimberly 62, Franklin 34
Franklin 53, Bay Port 30
Franklin 68, Superior 31

Round of 16:
Franklin 57, Muskego 44

1st – 8th Place Quarterfinals:
Franklin 48, Waukesha West 47

1st-4th Place Semi-Finals:
Green Bay Southwest 51, Franklin 43

3rd Place Game:
Kimberly 41, Franklin 26

Brookfield Central defeated Green Bay Southwest to win the Division 1 Championship.

The Franklin team is coached by Keith Decker. Franklin’s Jacob Vonderwell was named to the All-Tournament team for Division 1.


The Wisconsin State Invitational Championship Tournament is an annual event, held in February, March or April of each year, pitting the top community-based teams in the State of Wisconsin against each other. The tournament is organized by size of communities, much like the WIAA state high school tournaments, so that top teams can compete on a level playing field with other programs their size.
