Kewaunee graduate Teresa (Teske) Bortolini ’88 is the focus of this week’s “Alumni Spotlight.” Bortolini participated in basketball, volleyball and track during her distinguished high school sports career. She attended the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where she received a basketball scholarship. Bortolini was named to UW-Milwaukee’s All-Century Team in recognition of her great accomplishments on the court. Graduating in 1992, Bortolini received a double major in business administration and real estate and urban development.
As far as her favorite high school memory, Bortolini can’t narrow it down to just one game or play; rather, the entire experience of playing with her teammates sticks out in her mind.
Facing a tough conference schedule throughout her high school career, Bortolini remembers some of the toughest matchups she and her teammates faced throughout the basketball season.
Today, Bortolini stays involved with sports by helping coach her children’s grade school teams. She also coached girls basketball at Kewaunee from 1994 to 2002. Her advice to current student athletes is to “play hard and enjoy each and every minute of it.”
Bortolini and her husband, Scott, reside in Kewaunee with their three children, Tanor, Toni and Blake. She owns her own title insurance company, Title Trends, which has offices in Kewaunee, Green Bay and Sturgeon Bay. The next time you visit the halls of Kewaunee High School, you will see she is an honoree of the 2013 class on the “Wall of Fame.”
