G-E-T sophomore Cody Schmitz ran through the midcourt in the first half of a nonconference win over Sparta on Tuesday. Schmitz broke the school record for points with 61.

From the time he was just an elementary-school-aged boy tucked into the bleachers at Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau High School watching the Red Hawk boys basketball team play, Cody Schmitz has idolized the Wagner family. He grew up watching Tim, a 2013 graduate, and Nick, a 2016 graduate, lead G-E-T to...

After a rough start offensively in the first game, the Independence girls basketball team rebounded with a win. The Indees managed just 34 points in a loss to Whitehall last week Tuesday (see story elsewhere in Sports), but responded by scoring 25 in the first half of a 63-20 win over Coulee Region...
The Whitehall boys basketball team is returning most of its roster, looking to make a run at the Dairyland Conference Large Division title. After a slow start to the season, the Norse finished third in the DC-Large last year at 5-5 and had an overall mark of 13-9, eventually losing to Blair-Taylor...
The Arcadia girls basketball team was right in the game, but Altoona took control over the final 11 minutes. The game was tied late, but Altoona outscored the Raiders more than two-to-one down the stretch to pull away for an 18-point win. It won’t get much easier for Arcadia from here. On Monday...
Few Independence players have brought more intensity to the court than Brett Brandenburg did when he suited up for the Indees and now he hopes to use that to take the program to another level as its head coach. “I hope to bring a different energy to this program as the head coach this year,”...
As the Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau High School boys basketball team prepped for its season opener against Sparta last Tuesday, the Red Hawks understood well what it will take to have success this winter. After a 2020-21 season that saw G-E-T finish with a 3-10 record, including a 3-5 run in the Coulee...
Randy Storlie has seen and experienced a lot as a head basketball coach. Entering his 40th year on the bench at Blair-Taylor High School, this year will bring with it more changes and adjustments for the longtime coach as Storlie works to recover from losing a handful of talented starters over the...
Just two years ago, the Arcadia High School boys basketball team won a single game, but progress was made last season, as the Raiders worked their way to an 8-9 record (6-4 Coulee Conference).  Coach Ryan Sonnentag knows there are more questions than answers as he works to continue building his...

With wins over Independence and GIlmanton last week, the Whitehall girls basketball team has started a season 2-0 for the first time since 2012-12. Defense proved to be a strength for the Norse in both games. They held the Indees to less than 30 percent shooting and 34 total points last week...

It took a bit for the offense to get going, but Blair-Taylor’s defense didn’t allow Black River Falls a chance to stay in the game. After both teams scored on their first possessions, neither team did much until about five minutes into the game when defense led to offense for B-T. They took a 34-10...
