Best Spectator Sports Team

1st Place: Eau Claire Express
2nd Place: Chippewa Valley Roller Girls
3rd Place: UWEC Hockey

Good news, sports fans: After a six-year hiatus, this poll question is back! The Eau Claire Express were the original winners of this category in 2007 and have returned to overwhelmingly claim that spot in your sport-loving hearts. Whether it’s the appeal of the all-you-can-eat-and-drink Fan Deck, the team’s zany mascots (Trax and Trix) and their antics, or just the sound of the crack of the bat on a warm summer evening, something is drawing over 2,000 of you to Carson Park each time the Express take the field. The second-place finishers, the Chippewa Valley Rollers Girls, were not yet established in 2007, but have since become a local favorite. UWEC’s hockey program skates into third place, proving that one of the best ways to beat the cold of winter is to put it on ice. –Paul Brandt
