Welcome, new recruits!

Evan Rathke

4/16/13: UW-Washington County Men's Basketball program recently received a commitment from one of the area’s top players. Evan Rathke, a 2012 graduate of Random Lake High School, has committed to play basketball at UW-WC next season.

A first time all-conference player during his senior year at Random Lake, Evan is a 6’2 forward that averaged 16.3 points per game, 5.3 rebounds per game, 3.2 assists per game, 2.6 steals per game and 2.0 blocks per game as a senior in the 2011-2012 season. He brings an inside/outside game to the Wildcats offense, which fits Coach Thull’s philosophy of pulling the posts out -as well as pounding the ball inside. “I am very excited to add Evan to next year's squad. Offensively, Evan brings a lot to this team -from his ability to score - to his ability to make others around him better, but equally as exciting, is his ability to play on the defensive end," said Coach Thull. Coach Thull was also impressed beyond what Evan can do on the court. “As I started to recruit Evan, I asked three of his former teammates at Random Lake, "What can you tell me about Evan Rathke?" The one thing that all three mentioned was that he is a great teammate. Thull knew instantly that Evan was a special player that will work well for the Wildcats team!

After graduating from high school, Evan took a year off and worked for his dad. Excited to begin his college education and play basketball again, Evan's intended major is animal science.

Christopher Gough

Mountain Top High School senior, Christopher Gough will be joining the UW-WC Wildcats team this fall. The 6'3" player from Horicon is known for his ball handling and routine 23 foot shots. His stats are impressive, scoring 720 points in 19 games at Mountain Top. Coach Thull is excited to have a player with Christopher's ability on the UW-WC team.
