Madison Edgewood’s boys swimming and diving team has won back-to-back WIAA Division 2 state championships.

Sauk Prairie/Wisconsin Heights knocked out the champs, though, on Dec. 15.

The Eagles finished first in six of 11 events and used their superior depth to topple the Crusaders, 100-68.

Eagles fly high

Four games into the young season, it’s clear where Sauk Prairie’s boys basketball team will hang its hat this winter.

“The identity of our team is our defense,” Eagles coach Sean McGann said. “We hold the standard very high on that end of the floor, and this group is so coachable.”

Boy, are they ever.

Girls basketball team splits a pair

Every practice is a blessing.

Every game is a godsend.

That’s how Sauk Prairie’s girls basketball team is looking at the 2020-21 campaign. So the fact the Eagles began their season — and split a pair of games — last week was thrilling to everyone inside the program.

The Sauk Prairie/Wisconsin Heights boys swimming team knows there are no guarantees. Nothing is promised.

In this COVID world, their season could be halted at any team.

So the Eagles are approaching the year with the mantra of racing as hard as they can every moment of every meet.

Gymnasts have great expectations

Justine Anderson knows that if Rome wasn’t built in a day, then turning Sauk Prairie’s girls gymnastics program into a force will take time.

But Anderson — the Eagles’ head coach — knows her team is making the necessary strides. And that’s what has her so fired up about the 2020-21 campaign.

Eagles’ wrestlers have high hopes

Something beats nothing.

Making adjustments is better than staying home.

That’s how Sauk Prairie’s wrestling team views the season that lies ahead.

Wrestlers will have to wear masks. Only dual meets are allowed. And depending where a meet is being held, either limited fans or no fans will be allowed.

Off and running

It’s been said first impressions are the often the most lasting.

If that’s the case for Sauk Prairie’s boys basketball team, the Eagles could be in for a memorable season.
