With time running out on their season, the Sauk Prairie Eagles didn’t panic.

UW-Green Bay commit Katelyn Fishnick jump-started the offense with an amazing second half goal, and the Eagles’ defense continued their stellar play.

Eagles headed back to state

It was a road trip that the Sauk Prairie Eagles will never forget.

For the second consecutive year, the Eagles met River Falls in a WIAA Division 2 girls soccer sectional championship game, this time in Rhinelander.

Doherty shines at state


Wisconsin Heights senior standout Kylie Doherty had a tremendous weekend at the WIAA Division 2 state track and field meet. Doherty finished fourth in the discus with a throw of 131 feet, 1 inch. Jefferson’s Ayianna Johnson won the event with a throw of 146-7. Doherty was also 12th in the shot put with a throw of 36-2 ¾. “Kylee had a great weekend at state,” Heights coach Kelly Payne said. “While she was aiming for a higher finish than fourth, there was some very strong competition in Division 2 with four of the top five of all girls discus throwers coming out of Division 2. “All in all, it was a successful way to end her high school track and field career. I am excited that she was able to have all the success she did this year.” Photo by Aaron Jacobus

The competition was fierce.

The talent level was sky high.

And in the end, it was too much to overcome.

Exiting in style

Alexis Klemm achieved a rare feat last Saturday night at Eagles’ Stadium.
