ASHWAUBENON, Wis. -- Success during last Spring's WIAA Girls State Basketball Tournament leads to a long term agreement to host the high school tournament at the Resch Center for the next seven years.
Ticket sales for the first tournament, held in March, reached nearly 40,000 for the weekend tournament. That is about 10,000 more than sales in Madison for the 2012.
Brown County leaders say the 2013 tournament brought an economic impact of $3 Million to the region.
