The Whitehall boys basketball team wasn’t able to recover from a slow start as it fell to Durand last week. The Panthers scored 20 of the first 25 points in the game before the Norse got back into it. The Norse got the lead down to single digits before halftime and were within six at 31-25 early in...

For much of a nonconference girls basketball game at Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau High School last Tuesday, the host Red Hawks were doing their part to keep a bigger and more physical Altoona team from gathering rebounds and limiting the visitors to a single chance. But timely turnovers and defensive...

The Independence girls basketball team had a chance late, but a turnover clinched the win for Eau Claire Immanuel Lutheran. The Indees had the ball trailing by a basket, but a turnover in the closing seconds gave it back to the Lancers, who clinched the game with a free throw.  The loss put...
Coming into the season, Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau High School boys basketball coach Jared McCutchen wasn’t sure what to expect.  Now three games — and three wins — into the year, McCutchen said his team is proving itself. The Red Hawks beat Cochrane-Fountain City 79-68 last Monday before beating...
After leading through the first six matches — the lightweight wrestlers — in a season-opening dual at Cadott High School, the Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau/Melrose-Mindoro wrestling team saw its lead vanish quickly. Cadott would go on to win the match 43-30. Cadott won four straight matches by pins in...

As the gymnasium at Westby High School slowly emptied on Friday, screams from the visiting locker room erupted and echoed through the far end of a nearby hallway — the Arcadia girls basketball team was winless no more. The Raiders (1-3, 1-0 Coulee Conference) overcame a strong run by Westby in the...

Less than three full games into her junior season, Steien scored the 1,000th point of her career last Friday against Whitehall. The basket that put her at that mark...

If the first two games are any indication of what the Blair-Taylor boys basketball team will bring to the table this season, one thing is for certain — the scoring will come in droves. The Wildcats scored 81 points to down Greenwood in their season opener last Thursday before keeping the offense...

Two pins and five forfeits gave the Independence/Gilmanton wrestling team a win in its first match of the season last week Tuesday. Facing former coach Chad Risler, the Indees began the match with two pins in new coach Ryan Guza’s debut. The Buffaloes came back to take the lead, but three forfeits...

A balanced scoring attack helped the Whitehall girls basketball team take a big lead as they moved to 3-0 on the season. The Norse scored 35 points to take a 20-point lead into halftime then held Coulee Christian to just two baskets in the second half as they went on to win 69-19. With a 3-0 record...
