Sponsors sought to cover the cost of the trip

Tyler Daehn from Elkhorn Area High School has been invited to represent Wisconsin on the 2017 Wisconsin Central Conference Track and Field Team. He will depart for Queensland, Australia on July 2 to compete down under for individual honors and a team championship title.

A major source of funds comes through voluntary contributions of family, friends and business sponsors. Your sponsorship will be a very important part of fundraising for me and my team… and will help us fulfill this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” Daehn wrote on a sponsorship letter.

About Down Under

Down Under Sports was founded in 1989 based upon the dream of a New Zealander by the name of George O’Scanlon, who fell in love with athletics, especially American football (gridiron) as a young man growing up in his native country of New Zealand.

His desire over the years has been to promote gridiron, not only to the people of New Zealand, but also to Australia where he lived for many years. That is why George started the Down Under Bowl, which eventually led to the establishment of the Down Under Hoops Classic and the Down Under International Games.

The Down Under Sports programs use the common language of sports to bridge the continents and provide a forum for athletes from around the globe to compete head-to-head in the sport they love.

During the past 27 years, Down Under Sports has had the opportunity to share the land down under with tens of thousands of individuals from across the United States. Some prior standouts of the Down Under Bowl include Jake “The Snake” Plummer (Denver Broncos), Ahman Green (Green Bay Packers), Rob Morris (Indianapolis Colts), Dave Dixon (Minnesota Vikings) and Jesse Williams (Seattle Seahawks).

The 2017 Down Under Sports program will include competition in wrestling, football, cross country, golf, track and field, basketball and volleyball. Down Under Sports’ goal is to continue to provide athletes who excel in their sport the opportunity to experience the culture, beauty and grandeur of the land down under all within the framework of spirited and intense competition.
