Second verse, same as the first

The sequel was no better than the original.

And that was bad news for Sauk Prairie’s football team.

The Eagles hosted Baraboo last Friday and fell to the Thunderbirds, 35-0. The game was moved to Sauk Prairie’s new turf stadium due to poor field conditions at Baraboo.

Boerger sprints to state


Sauk Prairie sophomore Jack Boerger qualified for the state cross country meet, which will be held Saturday at Hartland Arrowhead High School.

Hard work.

Determination.

Talent.

Jack Boerger has them all. And now, Sauk Prairie’s cross country standout is headed to the WIAA Division 1 state meet.

Boerger finished second at the Portage Sectional last Saturday and earned a trip to the state meet, which will be held at Arrowhead High School this Saturday.

Two steps from state


Quinn Baier (11) and Sauk Prairie’s boys soccer team cruised through regionals last week and are now just two wins from reaching the state tournament for the first time since 1996.

Two down.

Two to go.

Sauk Prairie’s boys soccer team cruised through their WIAA Division 2 regional last week. The Eagles rolled past Mauston, 6-0, in a regional semifinal last Thursday, then posted a 5-0 win over Portage in a regional final last Saturday.

Eagles storm into sectionals

Call them giant killers.

Goliath slayers.

And be sure to call them regional champions.

Sauk Prairie’s girls volleyball team just completed one of the greatest weeks in program history and will now be hosting a WIAA Division 1 sectional this week.

Sauk Prairie swimmers go unbeaten in duals

It’s been a wild, wacky year when it comes to high school sports.

But it’s also turning out to be a remarkably satisfying one for Sauk Prairie’s girls swimming and diving team.

The Eagles rolled past Portage, 134-29, last Tuesday and finished their dual meet season undefeated.

Clay Iverson knows there won’t be as many wins this season.

Sauk Prairie’s football coach understands his team won’t match the six victories the 2019 team produced and won’t head to the playoffs like last year’s team did.

But Iverson continues to see improvement. And for now, he’ll take it.

Speed demons

The Badger Conference cross country championships looked a little bit different this year.

The number of teams were down. There were fewer runners than normal.

But that didn’t stop Sauk Prairie’s runners from enjoying what was a magnificent day.

Olivia Breunig enjoyed a memorable night last Friday.

Now, Sauk Prairie’s girls volleyball team hopes to make the next couple of weeks notable.

Eagles will have winter sports

Play ball.

That was the message from Sauk Prairie athletic director Josh Boyer last Friday when it came to winter sports.

Earlier in the day, the Badger Conference — which Sauk Prairie is a part of — announced it would not have an official conference winter sports season.
