The first meeting between Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau and Arcadia on the gridiron since Sept. 28, 2018 went down to the wire on Friday.

When Shaka Smart was announced on March 25 as the 18th head coach in the history of the Marquette University basketball program, many including myself were hesitant to believe it. We had been through this dance before with this exact coach, seven years ago. At the time, I was a sophomore at...

Arcadia’s offense slowed down after a quick start, but their defense and special teams helped them pull away for a 34-14 win on Friday night. It took just two plays for Arcadia’s offense to score, but it stalled down after that. The team’s defense and special teams helped get more scores and turn...

A return to football for the first time in just over 500 days came with every bit of the excitement, as well as perhaps a bit of the rust, anticipated on Friday at Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau. In a battle of big plays early, three sustained drives across the fourth quarter and into overtime enabled...

            Lane Huebner (19) and Ben Weltzien (65) combined to sack Menominee Indian quarterback Devin Beaulieu-Morgan during their game on Saturday. The Raiders held the Eagles to 39 yards of offense.            (Times photograph by Andrew Dannehy)

Not much went wrong for the Arcadia football team — or right for Menominee Indian — as the Raiders were working substitutions in before the end of the first quarter in a 54-7 win on Saturday. Helped by a blocked punt and a defensive touchdown, the Raiders scored 27 point in the first quarter and...

In an unusual season, the Arcadia football team is hoping to improve each week and stack some wins along the way.

Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau football embraced the challenge of a new conference home in 2019, but this year the Red Hawks will adjust to playing in an entirely new season. After making themselves comfortable in a temporary realignment to the South Central Conference to the tune of a 7-0 conference...
In advance of the start of the fall alternate schedule this week, Arcadia and Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau released spectator protocols to ensure safety for all participants. Both schools will require masks to be worn at all times while on school grounds, as well as for members of the same family of...
