ASHWAUBENON, WI (WSAU) Local officials say hosting the Wisconsin high school girls basketball tournament next March could mean as much as three million dollars for the economy in Ashwaubenon.
The head of the Greater Green Bay Convention and Visitors Bureau says the three day WIAA tournament at the Resch Center would be equal to about six large conventions coming to town.
Twenty teams from all over Wisconsin will compete in five classifications from March 14th to the 16th.
As it stands now, the tournament is scheduled to be played in Brown County this year and next. Negotiations past 2014 have not been started. The tournament was held in Madison in the past.
