Oregon sophomore Andrew Jicha has been selected as the RallyAroundUs Athlete of the Week for the week of January 10-16 after a statewide vote on WisSports.net.
There were 4,078 total votes this week. Jicha topped all vote getters with 1,416 votes. Whitnall's Danilo Jovanovich came in second with 1,264 votes.
Jicha is one of the top point scorers in boys hockey in the state of Wisconsin and continued that trend last week in a pair of victories. In a high scoring, 9-7 win over the Monroe Co-op, Jicha netted six of his own goals and assisted on two others. The sophomore forward followed that up by scoring another four goals in a 6-0 win over Monona Grove. Jicha was extremely efficient in those games as all scored on all ten of his shot on goal attempts.
Despite a 6-5 loss to Sauk Prairie Thursday, Jicha continued to shine on the ice, compiling two goals and two assists.
