Former Wahlert High School basketball first team all-state selection Scott Plondke died earlier this week following an extended illness. The 53-year old Plondke was a 1983 Wahlert grad and went on to play college basketball at Wisconsin, Northern Iowa and then U-W Platteville. Plondke led the Golden Eagles in scoring and rebounding in 1982 and 1983. After his playing career, Plondke was a high school coach in Wisconsin at Wauzeka, River Ridge and Fennimore High Schools.
Funeral services for Plondke were held yesterday in his hometown of Prairie du Chien
