THS seniors DeKiep, Stromberg sign Letters of Intent
For the Tomahawk Leader
TOMAHAWK – Tomahawk High School (THS) recently celebrated National Letter of Intent signings for two members of the Class of 2024.
On Thursday, Dec. 21, THS seniors Paige DeKiep and Scout Stromberg were surrounded by family, coaches and teammates as they declared their intentions to continue their athletic careers at the collegiate level after high school.
Paige DeKiep signed to be a member of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Women’s swim and dive team for the fall of 2024.
DeKiep will finish her swim career at THS with three individual WIAA State Tournament appearances.
In 2021, during her sophomore year, she qualified for the state tournament in the 200-yard freestyle, ultimately taking 10th place, and 100-yard butterfly, finishing in 9th.
During her junior year in 2022, DeKiep again qualified for the 200-yard freestyle and took 8th place. She also qualified for the 100-yard butterfly, which resulted in an individual state runner-up finish.
As a senior in 2023, DeKiep capped off her Hatchet career by returning to state in the 50-yard freestyle and the 100-yard butterfly, taking 7th and 4th place, respectively.
Along with her Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) individual medals, DeKiep was also a frequent podium participant at the Great Northern Conference (GNC) tournament, finishing her career with five conference championships, one runner-up honor and one honorable mention.
Scout Stromberg, a member of the Hatchet boys’ hockey team for the past three seasons, has committed to continue her hockey career at Concordia University Wisconsin in Mequon.
Stromberg was a regular starter for THS while also playing for the Team Wisconsin Girls’ Program throughout high school.
Last season, Tomahawk had the most wins in school history while enjoying some state recognition.
As of Thursday, Dec. 21, Tomahawk was undefeated in the GNC and had seen Honorable Mention state rankings in the early part of the current season.
Stromberg had a career stat line of three goals and 22 assists for 25 career points as of signing day.
The THS Activities Department congratulated DeKiep and Stromberg and thanked them for “representing our school and community to the highest of standards.”
“Everyone wishes you the best of luck on your next journey, and Go Hatchets!” the department said.
