Southern Wisconsin Open: Preview

By Wisconsin Staff

On Saturday, Oct. 16, the PBR Wisconsin team is headed back to STiKS Academy in Waukesha to host its annual fall showcase, the Southern Wisconsin Open . Since 2013, we’ve hosted this end-of-the-year showcase as we all prepare for the offseason ahead. This showcase is open to all high school graduating classes and registration remains open.

Amongst last year’s roster, was recent Arkansas commit RHP Jonah Conradt (P27 Academy, SC, 2023), formerly of Hortonville. This event provided an opportunity to identify need-to-know prospects headed into the offseason, as players who should be on the radar next spring. 

Here are some more familiar names that attended last year’s Southern Wisconsin Open: C/RHP Reece Stangel (Roncalli, 2022), 3B/RHP Ethan Brown (Waukesha West, 2023), INF/RHP Colton Angell (Oshkosh North, 2024), and OF Dylan Mass (Franklin, 2022; Saint Leo commit). This year’s roster contains a mix of graduation classes, ranging from classes 2022-2025.

We’re excited to get an end-of-year look at this year’s roster full of new faces, right before the intensive seasonal development window.

Here’s a two-way we’re looking forward to seeing this weekend: RHP/OF Kegan Schlichting (Oshkosh North). 

One of the arms to keep an eye on at this weekend's event is 2023 RHP Tristan Arnold (Mukwonago).
