Dana Feyen reached for her phone, exhausted and still trying to comprehend what she had just accomplished at the Big 12 Conference outdoor track and field championships in Lubbock, Texas on May 15. The 2019 Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau High School graduate found the contact for her mom and hit ‘Dial’...

The Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau High School legion baseball team played seven games in six days last week. Post 354 split a pair of high octane games with Arcadia on Tuesday and edged West Salem 11-7 on Thursday. They suffered losses to both the Onalaska 19U and 17U teams on Saturday before closing...

Jake Dunn

Jake Dunn was ticked off as he pushed a tee into the dirt on the tee box of the ninth hole at Ettrick Golf Club last Wednesday. Dunn had just missed a birdie putt on his eighth hole, a gaffe he thought would keep him from getting to the course record for lowest score. “I was pissed,” Dunn told the...
When did local sports become more about those perched in the stands than the kids wearing the jerseys? They haven’t. But at a recent summer baseball game, I watched parents berate an umpire over his strike zone before later taunting calls they didn’t like, eventually escalating to screaming and...
After struggling to start the season, the Arcadia Tickfer-Erickson American Legion Post 17 baseball team picked up its first win last week Monday. Arcadia’s 0-4 start included two losses by 10 runs or more as they gave up at least six runs in each game. But last week, Post 17 limited Tomah to just...

The first two games of Genna O’Neill’s junior softball season were hard to stomach. Her team lost the 2019-20 season to COVID the year prior, and G-E-T was headed into the season without a starting pitcher. She had worked the entire offseason on her pitches, throwing before and after school and...

After taking a big lead, My Second Home needed a late blast to seal the championship in the annual Pleasantville Fourth of July Fastpitch Softball Tournament held last Friday-through-Sunday. Aaron Berg smashed a grand slam in the second inning to help My Second Home take a 7-0 lead over Cushing...

The Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau Post 354 baseball team hit two home runs last Thursday in a Coulee Region Legion game at Logan High School but fell 4-3 at the hands of the North Stars.  They avenged the loss with a tight 7-6 win in game two, which also saw a Red Hawk home run.  Post 354 hosted Arcadia...
  The annual Fourth of July fastpitch softball tournament hosted by the Pleasantville Lions Club begins this Friday with six teams competing. The first game will be played at 6:30 p.m. when the Pleasantville Lions team plays Ritter Hardware. My Second Home and Foster Fireside will then play at 8 p....

 

 

Dan Stuhr remembers clearly the first time someone asked him how he handled coaching girls as the head softball coach at Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau High School. His response? “I said, ‘I don’t coach girls. I coach ball players. I don’t care if they’re a boy or girl, I expect them to wear their hats,...
