Accolades keep coming for hockey players and coach
space
The 2013-14 Antigo Red Robins hockey season was one of the most successful in recent years.

As the Great Northern Conference champions, the Robins demonstrated great teamwork, incredible resolve and tremendous coaching to complement their already natural talents.

On the cusp of the WIAA State Hockey Tournament, the Robin men fell short on paper but won the respect of sports fans everywhere in Wisconsin for their accomplishments this season. To their own credit as standouts amongst standouts, the following recipients have displayed exceptional human attributes both on and off the ice.

From the Wisconsin Hockey Coaches Association (WHCA), 2014 first team honors were awarded to forward Alex Nagel and defensemen Matt Wolter, a senior, and Jackson Charlesworth.

Also compiled by the WHCA, Ryan Schmidt was chosen as an honorable mention goaltender of the year.

For Antigo’s personal Tony Koszarek Award, presented to the Red Robin’s best example of camaraderie, resolve and overall team respect, senior Joe Kubacki was elected.

In addition, Kubacki was honored at the Antigo Area Youth Hockey Association recognition banquet with the Mel Anderson Award.

Receiving the Hobey Baker Award for recognition of athletic ability, academic prowess and local service to one’s community was senior Blake Kirsch.

Lastly, Matt Borneman was named the recipient for WHCA Coach of the Year Award.

In just one season, Coach Borneman’s accomplishments outweighed any difficulties he encountered tenfold. Antigo’s coaching staff, assisted by Cory Beaulieu and Eric Schroeder, proves to be directing the program in an outstanding manner.

In his usual, jovial way, when told congratulations about the WHCA Award, Coach Borneman replied with a laugh, “Well, it must have been a short list.”
