Each week, WIAA coaches around the state submit to us their nominations for the PBR Wisconsin Player of the Week honor. On Wednesday, we awarded the first 'Players of the Week' awards of the year, representing Weeks 1 and 2, to RHP Elijah Niemiec (St. Thomas More, 2023; Wisconsin-Stevens Point commit), who has K'd 28 batters in 11 innings, including an 18 K performance in a one-hit shutout and earned 'Pitcher of the Week' honors. INF/RHP Zach Wolfram (Menomonee Falls, 2023) earned 'Player of the Week' honors after tallying five extra base hits to help Menomonee Falls to a 4-0 record.
