Both Arcadia High School girls golf coach Mike Sobotta and Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau coach Scott Hovell believe they have a shot at the Coulee Conference title despite losing their best golfers from last year’s teams. The scores from the first conference meet last Wednesday show that such confidence...

The Whitehall football team was driving for what could have been the tying score, but lighting flashed and that’s where the drive and the game ended. The Norse trailed Colfax 14-6 at halftime, but received the opening kickoff in the second half. They picked up a first down near midfield when Brock...

A long field goal put the Independence/Gilmanton football team ahead in the first quarter, but it was all downhill from there as Boyceville scored 47 unanswered points in the season opener. The game began Friday night as the Indees rattled off a big run, but that was the lone offensive highlight...
A 52-point lead in the first half for host Ellsworth stood up as final in the Arcadia High School football team’s 2022 season opener on Friday. The powerhouse Panthers scored eight touchdowns in the effort, including six on the ground. Ellsworth went 12-1 last season, losing to Catholic Memorial 21...

            Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau's Ben Peterson took hold of Mondovi running back Dawson Rud in the first quarter of a 20-10 loss to the visiting Buffaloes last Friday. The game was the first of the 2022 season for new G-E-T coach Paul Anderson's team and featured a two-hour weather delay.                        (Times photograph by Benjamin Pierce)

Most coaches don’t soon forget their first game running a new team, but Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau head football coach Paul Anderson’s debut on Friday should probably be circled on a list of memorable firsts somewhere. Anderson and the Red Hawks opened the 2022 season with a game that featured just...

Whitney Sonsalla showed she has no plans of slowing down in her senior season of high school golf last Friday, cracking the top 10 in a loaded field at the season opener at the La Crosse Country Club in Onalaska. But it could be just the beginning for a player who coach Mike Sobotta described as...

            Blair-Taylor’s Colton Koxlien found running room on a kick return during their game against Onalaska Luther on Friday night.             (Times photograph by Andrew Dannehy)

A fumble recovery in the first quarter helped Blair-Taylor take the lead, but four turnovers of their own let the Onalaska Luther team run away with the win. B-T took a 6-0 lead in the first quarter after a fumble recover put them deep in Luther territory and they capitalized with a touchdown. The...

A new starting quarterback, a new running back and trying to replace three all-area players on defense. It sounds like a lot to handle for one high school football team, but over at Arcadia High School coach Derek Updike has liked what he has seen in the early going for his 2022 squad. The Raiders...

The 2022 Blair-Taylor football team enters the season with many players from the 2021 playoff team returning, but is still in a completely different situation. The 2021 Wildcats entered the season with a lot of inexperienced players looking to fill positions, but they had a returning senior...

            New Independence/Gilmanton football coach Todd Fischer looked on during a drill at practice on Thursday.            (Times photograph by Andrew Dannehy)

While he is new to the Independence/Gilmanton football program and the Dairyland Conference, coach Todd Fischer said there will be no surprises with how he runs his program. Fischer began his coaching career when he was 18 years old at Colfax High School in the 1980s while he was attending college...
