Casey Weber

2021

Multi-sport athlete in basketball, softball, soccer and volleyball, Casey Weber made her biggest contributions on the basketball court, leading the Rice Lake Warrior girls basketball team to a period of excellence in the seasons before she graduated from Rice Lake High School in 2008. The prolific-scoring guard averaged more than 20 points per game as she guided the Warriors to two Big Rivers Conference championships, earning All-Big Rivers first team selection as a junior and senior in ’07 and ’08. By the time Weber finished her 4-year varsity career, she had scored 1,293 points for a school record at the time, shattering scoring marks that had stood for 50 years, and helped the Warriors to a 39 and 9 record in ’07 and ‘08 including 21 and 4 in ’07. She was a Division 2 All-State selection by the Associated Press and Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Assoc., and was selected Northwest Basketball Player of the Year by the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram in the 2007-08 season. She also earned Big Rivers All-Conference Academic Honors. Veteran girls basketball coach Jim Bartlett of Barron said, If I were selecting an all-star team, Casey would be included. She was extremely gifted and could score from anywhere. She was the ultimate competitor, but when the game ended she demonstrated exemplary sportsmanship. Weber went on to play college basketball at UW-La Crosse until an ankle injury, which eventually required tightrope surgery, ended her collegiate basketball career. She then attended UW-Eau Claire and earned a nursing degree. Casey was then recruited to play professional basketball for the White Rings of Hannau, Germany for one year. She is currently a massage therapist in Anoka MN.
