The Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau High School boys basketball team put an end to a four-game losing streak last week.

The Blair-Taylor High School girls basketball team is quickly approaching 20 wins on the 2021-22 season after racking up three more victories last week, and a big reason for that success came as the team’s leader hit a career milestone in the process. The Wildcats (18-1 overall, 10-1 Dairyland...
G-E-T/Mel-Min/C-FC junior gymnast Abigail Miller won three of four events in a dual against West Salem/Aquinas last Thursday, but the host Panthers took both of the top spots in the all-around to lead them to a win. West Salem/Aquinas won 135.975-132.15 behind all-around champion Taliyia Michlig’s...
A five game winning streak for the Blair-Taylor High School boys basketball team came to a close last Saturday in a tight loss at Royall. The Wildcats started the week with a win over Alma/Pepin on Tuesday and followed the effort by nearly doubling up Eleva-Strum on Friday. Blair-Taylor (12-7...

A sloppy start and a matchup with one of the best teams across Wisconsin was a sinister combination for the Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau High School boys basketball team last Tuesday. West Salem (18-1 this season, 9-0 Coulee Conference) was all over the visiting Red Hawks from the opening tip,...

The Whitehall girls basketball team lost two games to a couple of the best teams in the area, but also scored a Dairyland Conference win last week.

The Independence girls basketball team failed to top 30 points in two losses last week.

The next day they were neck-and-neck with Gilmanton, but the Panthers pulled out a 34-30 win....
The West Salem girls basketball team is officially in the driver’s seat of the Coulee Conference race after defeating G-E-T (9-11, 6-3 Coulee) last Thursday. A loss to the Panthers was preceded by a second-half push from the Red Hawks and multiple players hitting key shots in a win over Tomah on...

Convincing wins in the final Dairyland Conference dual of the season left the Whitehall wrestling team alone on top for the third straight season. The Norse entered the day needing wins over Independence/Gilmanton and Blair-Taylor and they got just that, cruising in both matches to clinch the...
