The Whitehall boys and Blair-Taylor girls shined above the rest last Thursday in a meet hosted by the Wildcats. The Norse boys accumulated four event wins, while the B-T girls tallied six to take the top positions in their respective fields. The Wildcats were scheduled to compete Monday at home, as...

It proved to be a difficult week for the Whitehall softball team, losing two games by a combined score of 40-2. The first loss came to a team that has beaten several opponents by similar scores as the Norse lost to Blair-Taylor 23-0 last Thursday (see story elsewhere in Sports). On Friday, the...

 

 

Major League Baseball has an offensive problem, and it is not White Sox designated hitter Yermín Mercedes swinging away at a 3-0 pitch for a home run in the ninth inning of a 15-4 ballgame. In fact, that swing only helped address the actual biggest problem in baseball right now, the lowest league-...

It was a story of two extremes for the Arcadia baseball team last week as they lost one game by the mercy rule before winning one. Little went right for the Arcaida baseball team as they lost to West Salem 14-0 last week Tuesday. On Friday, however, they took an early lead and remained in control...
Competing against some larger schools, the Arcadia boys and girls track teams both finished sixth at the La Crosse Logan A-B-C Invitational on Friday. Friday’s meet was unique in that it separated competitors into A, B and C fields with the top–ranked athlete from each school competing in the “A”...

Struggles at the plate led to three losses for the Arcadia softball team as they lost to two teams they previously defeated this season. The Raiders opened the week with a 6-2 loss to Black River Falls last week Monday. On Tuesday, they managed just two runs against a team they scored 12 against...

A lopsided win was followed by a loss as the Whitehall baseball team split two Dairyland Conference games last week. The Norse took control of their game against Blair-Taylor in the third inning on Thursday. It was that same inning, however, that they surrendered control to Melrose-Mindoro on...

            Emerson Pronschinske delivered a pitch for Independence/Gilmanton during last Thursday’s game against Augusta.                        (Times photograph by Andrew Dannehy)

After one high-scoring game, the Independence/Gilmanton softball team’s offensive struggles returned last week. The Indees broke out offensively in a 13-1 win over Alma Center Lincoln last week Thursday. But their hot bats didn’t carry over to the next day as they managed one run in a 4-1 loss to...
The Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau golf team won one of three events last week among Coulee Conference teams, thanks in part to an accomplished player returning from injury. Sawyer Schmidt, the 2019 Coulee Conference Medalist, made his season debut after recovering from an injury sustained during spring...
Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau baseball split a pair of Coulee Conference games last week, as they maintained an even conference record. The Red Hawks were held to one hit in a loss to West Salem last Monday, before an explosive late-game effort on Thursday against Black River Falls. G-E-T moves to 5-6...
