Kylee Doherty (6) and Wisconsin Heights’ girls volleyball team are excited to begin their new season.

Iverson steps down at Sauk

Clay Iverson was optimistic things would work themselves out.

Iverson, Sauk Prairie’s football coach in 2019 and 2020 and a Business teacher at the high school, was driving every day from Waukesha. Iverson loved what he did, liked where the football program was headed and hoped to eventually move his family to the community.

Double trouble

Wisconsin Heights girls basketball standouts Hana King (top) and Kylee Doherty were both named all-Capitol South Conference.

King received second-team all-conference honors, while Doherty was named honorable mention all-conference.

End of the road

Wisconsin Heights boys basketball coach Zack Colby knew the challenge was immense.

The Vanguards needed to slow down Fennimore’s 6-foot-9 center Adam Larson in their WIAA Division 4 regional semifinal last Friday.

When Heights couldn’t stop Larson, he stopped their season.

Sauk Prairie drops a thriller

A season to remember came down to one final shot for Sauk Prairie’s boys basketball team last Friday night.

When a last-second attempt from three-point range for senior guard Tyler Uselman came up short, though, the lights went out on a memorable career for nine Eagles seniors.

But the Eagles’ thrilling campaign ended on Feb. 9.

Sauk Prairie boys basketball coach Sean McGann knows the situation isn’t ideal.

Still, McGann has plenty of faith in his Eagles as the postseason arrives.

Ready for the playoffs

The regular season brought some impressive highs for Wisconsin Heights’ boys basketball team.

It also saw rough patches.

With the postseason set to begin Friday, though, the Vanguards believe they’re more than capable of making a run.
