The Little Town That Could

By Keith R. Schmitz

Congrats to Marathon, Wisconsin, my wife's home town, population -- not a lot of people.

They won not one but two championships yesterday. Thanks to a strong finish in the 4th quarter, their boys basketball team took the WIAA Division 4 Championship trophy. It was their first state championship since 1977.

Great as this was, it was the second win that reached way out of their league. This public, small town school that has to essentially work with what it gets in terms of students, won the Wisconsin Academic Decathlon. They beat Brookfield Academy, a private school that can recruit practically any one they please by an incredible 4,000 points.

Good work you lazy, overpaid, union thugs.
