One rebound.

One shot.

One possession.

Sometimes, that’s all it comes down to in the postseason. And when those little things didn’t go Wisconsin Heights’ way last Saturday night, the Vanguards’ season came to an abrupt end.

In a year of uncertainly, Sauk Prairie’s girls basketball program took some positive steps forward.

So, while the second-seeded Eagles’ season ended with a disappointing 72-67 loss to visiting third-seeded McFarland in a WIAA Division 2 regional semifinal game last Friday night, there certainly were no regrets.

They haven’t won a game in three weeks. 

They’ve lost five in a row — with four coming by double digits.

But Wisconsin Heights’ girls basketball team still believes it can cause some havoc this postseason.

For one night, Hakon Peterson played hero.

And boy, was it enjoyable for both Peterson and Sauk Prairie’s co-op hockey team.

Gymnasts have record night

It was a record-setting night for Sauk Prairie’s girls gymnastics team on Feb. 3. Even more exciting was it came in a win.

The Eagles downed Reedsburg, 128.450-123.30 in a dual meet. 

“They looked like they deserved to break the record with so many more hit routines,” Sauk Prairie coach Justine Anderson said.

Eagles wrestlers fall short of state

Sauk Prairie’s four remaining boys wrestlers gave a valiant effort at the WIAA Division 1 Mukwonago Sectional last Saturday. The four Eagles fell just short of state, though.

Carson Saladis, a 132-pounder, and heavyweight Nolan Vils both finished in fourth place. Colton Uselman (132) and Luis Elizondo (145) failed to win a match.

Hoping for a playoff run

Amazingly, the postseason in already here.

And perhaps Sauk Prairie’s girls basketball team has ironed out some of the kinks that plagued them in recent weeks.

The Eagles snapped a five-game losing streak with a pair of wins last week.

Sean McGann knows there are no guarantees. No promises.

But McGann, Sauk Prairie’s boys basketball coach, likes the position his Eagles are in for the postseason.

WAUKESHA — It had been more than a decade since the Sauk Prairie/Wisconsin Heights swimmers notched a top-five finish at state.

That drought ended last Friday when the Eagles finished fourth at the WIAA Division 2 state meet held at Waukesha South High School.

Sauk-Heights swimmers shine at sectionals

It’s been a wild, wacky year in the world of high school sports.

It’s also now a historic one for the Sauk Prairie-Wisconsin Heights boys swimming team.

The Eagles won the WIAA Division 2 Baraboo/Fort Atkinson Sectional last Saturday. That marked the first time in school history Sauk-Heights won the sectional title.
