VandeCastle named to WBCA All-Star Team

Wild Rose senior Alec VandeCastle was recently selected to the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Asso-ciation All-Star Team. Van-deCastle will be a member of the North team for Division 5.

It is an honor to be named a participant in the WBCA All-Star games as this event showcases seniors of each division who possess great talent and tremendous character. The WBCA All-Star games started in 1978 and each year the purpose of these games is to raise funds to help fight against childhood cancer. 

Since 1978, the WBCA has donated over $2.5 million to the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer (MACC) in the effort to combat childhood cancer. When the games started, the success rate of saving a child with cancer was down near 10 percent. Now, with the help of WBCA All-Star games and many others, the success rate of saving a child is up to around 80 percent.
