From Matt Majkrzak - "The Wisconsin Jets are officially closing the doors. Starting the Jets is without a doubt the most important decision of my life. I apologize about the length, but it's a story worth sharing. I also can't guarantee there might not be another long emotional post coming in next week or two... 😉
At 18 year old I was a bad player on a bad HS basketball team. There was a tournament called the Deans Food Classic. I wanted to play, but this was for good players...
The Second Half of the AAU season has officially started. All three teams played in the State Summer Invitational in Appleton this past weekend. The 17s went 3-1 with a close 6 point loss to TP Elite. The 16s and 15s each went 2-2. Big tournament coming up in two weeks in Milwaukee....NY2LA Next Level Invite July 10-14.
Jets win the Dakota Showcase, with an average margin of victory of 18 points per game. In semi-finals against a tough Blizz-Hawley team we won by 26. Then in the finals against the Blizz-Elite-Kellet squad we jumped out to a 24-4 lead before winning 64-49. With a 6-0 performance in Dakota our record is now 17-5. Tim Wagner was tournament MVP averaging 17.7 points, tying the tourney record for 3's with 26, and doubling his closest competitor.

The 16U Jets play on Saturday and Sunday in Ankeny, IA. Our first game is at 9:10 on Saturday morning and then again at 12:40 on Saturday afternoon. After those two games we enter bracket play.
17U went 2-2 against really tough competition. We beat the 9th ranked team in Minnesota and a TX D1 Ambassadors team with 5 D1 players. Our losses were against the #22 ranked team in the country and an impressive Fundamental U team with 4 D1 players.
Great weekend by both teams!!! 16U went 4-2. Making it to the finals in the gold bracket. Michael Woggon was fantastic, an absolute star. All 11 guys on the team stepped up to help us win 4 games by less then 4 points.
