The Sheboygan South Redwings have been selected as the Week 2 WSN Team of the Week following a statewide vote on WSN. The team posted a historic win over Notre Dame, in shutout fashion no less. The Redwings were chosen from a strong group of nominees in Week 2. A total of 3,579 votes were cast, as Sheboygan South's 2,264 votes edged Verona's 1,170 votes.
Sheboygan South has struggled for many years, with just three playoff appearances in school history and none since the 2010 season. The team has won just one game each of the past four seasons. A game against perennial powerhouse Notre Dame last Thursday didn't seem like a good matchup for the Redwings, but it proved to be a night for the program. South shutout Notre Dame 14-0, scoring just the third victory over the Tritons in program history. Erik Gonzalez-Serna found Colin Brennan for a second quarter touchdown, and Dylan Foth scored on an 11-yard run in the fourth quarter to help put the game away, as the defense stifled the Notre Dame offense for the shutout.
Remember folks, the only way your favorite team can be named WSN Team of the Week is to vote and share the word. Look for the Week 3 nominees to be posted Monday afternoon.
