Future looks bright for Eagles’ XC teams

It was arguably the busiest week of the season for coach Andy Sherman and Sauk Prairie’s cross country teams.

But with the conference meet and postseason rapidly coming into view, the future is looking bright for the Eagles.

Business as usual as Eagles’ soccer team rolls

With upcoming Badger North Conference matches against Waunakee and Mount Horeb looming on the schedule, Sauk Prairie’s boys soccer team couldn’t be blamed for peeking ahead.

Just don’t mention that to Sauk Prairie coach Drew Kornish and his senior-heavy squad.

Soccer Vanguards split two

The Wisconsin Heights/Barneveld boys soccer slipped to fourth place in the 10-team Capitol Conference with a loss to Lake Mills and a win over Lakeside Lutheran last week. The Vanguards are now 3-2 in the conference.

The Vanguards fell to Lake Mills, 3-2, on Sept. 24, in a game played at Breese Stevens Field.

They wanted more.

And who could blame them.

There are still three weeks until girls volleyball teams begin their postseason.

But the way Sauk Prairie is trending, it will be a tough out when tournament season arrives.

Luke Francois began his love affair with wrestling in kindergarten as a member of the Baraboo youth program in 1976.

Spring forward four decades later and the Middleton graduate and two-time state qualifier said he had to reach out to his first coach to share some good news.

Facing Waunakee is inevitable playing in the Northern Badger Conference.

Sauk Prairie knows it has to see the perennial powerhouse every season, and the Eagles’ time came last Friday.

What’s a defensive coordinator to do?

When it comes to stopping Wisconsin Heights’ high-powered offenses, no foe has come up with a good plan yet this year.

Badger Conference realignment set

All of Sauk Prairie’s sports programs will head to the Badger West Conference’s North Division in 2021. The only sport not affected by the new realignment plan is football. File photo

Conference realignment for high school football in Wisconsin goes into effect beginning in 2020.

So what about the other sports that area schools like Mount Horeb and Sauk Prairie are currently offering?

Their turn will come sooner than you might think.

Eagles’ soccer team splits a pair

Sauk Prairie reached the midpoint of the boys soccer regular season last week hoping to make a run at the Badger North Conference title, then chase postseason greatness.

So that made the Eagles’ quadrangular event last Saturday an important barometer on the state of the program according to first-year coach Drew Kornish.
