Arcadia coach Derek Updike complemented the grit his team showed as they held on to even the season series with a 14-12 win over Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau on Friday. “We’re not pretty, but we get the job done somehow,” Updike said. “The kids just don’t give up and they play together.” The difference...

 

 

Standing on the sideline of a spring high school football game two Fridays ago, one year after we had no prep sports at all to attend, was a strange feeling. I found myself pondering how much things can change in a year as I looked back, as well as forward. In the rear view were painful memories of...

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.

The bus breaking down on the way to Galesville might not have been the worst part of the evening for the Kingdom Prep Lutheran football team as Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau scored five touchdowns in the span of seven offensive plays to help open a 50-point lead by halftime on Thursday. KPL’s bus broke...

 

 

As Women’s History Month draws to a close, a recently-concluded 30-year study on the coverage of women’s athletics feels especially poignant to discuss. A University of Southern California and Purdue University joint study conducted every five years since 1989 found that in 2019, “95 percent of...
