Aquinas' Wettstein earns scholarship to West Point


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW)  National Signing Day is about 10 days away.

But one local star athlete secured a scholarship Monday.

Aquinas' Robert Wettstein has accepted a scholarship to run track for Army at West Point.

Wettstein tells News 19 that the offer came out of the blue, although he was being recruited by the Army for a couple of weeks.

He said the Army was his top choice and that he always wanted to go to a service academy.

Wettstein is a two-time state track meet participant and Aquinas High School record-holder.

He expects to compete in the long jump, sprints and relays.
