Waterloo High School senior basketball player Rick Wiegand is this week’s Republic-Times Athlete of the Week. Wiegand, who led the Bulldogs in scoring this season, poured in 17 points in Monday’s regional loss to Mascoutah, and exploded for 26 points in Friday’s senior night home win over Civic Memorial. Last Tuesday, Wiegand scored 22 points in a win over Jerseyville. “I thought Rick really played his best basketball late in the season and he helped lead us to some victories late,” Waterloo head coach CJ Cruser said.
Great job, Rick!
