Heights spikers have up and down day at Deerfield

It wasn’t the outcome they were hoping for.

But Wisconsin Heights’ girls volleyball team made the best of it.

The Vanguards lost their first two matches at the Deerfield Invite last Saturday and fell into the Silver Bracket. Heights responded with three straight wins, though, to capture the Silver Bracket title.

Sauk Prairie falls to 0-5

The Randy Wallace-era is off to a rough start.

And whether Sauk Prairie’s football team can reverse course in 2021 remains to be seen.

The Eagles dropped a 28-0 decision to visiting Reedsburg last Friday. Sauk Prairie, in its first year under Wallace, fell to 0-5 overall and 0-3 in the Badger Small Conference.

Heights keeps on rolling

Four weeks ago, they were a group that had just lost their head coach and were looking high and low for answers.

Today, Wisconsin Heights might be playing as well as any 8-man football team in the state.

Like mother, like daughter, Emma-Ray Kalscheuer isn’t afraid to try new things.

A junior who competes in basketball and soccer for the Wisconsin Heights Vanguards, Kalscheuer has become a trailblazer of sorts for the school’s eight-man football program.

Sauk Prairie swimmers 2nd at Baraboo Relays

Sauk Prairie’s girls swimming team finished second at the four-team Baraboo Relays last Saturday.

Monona Grove won the meet with 248 points, while Sauk Prairie was second with 166 points. Baraboo was third with 152 points, while OHA/GET was fourth (108).

On paper, the 4-4 record Sauk Prairie’s boys soccer team possesses won’t wow anyone.

But considering the Eagles have played one of the tougher schedules in the state, those in the know have been impressed.

Fort routs Sauk Prairie

Clay Iverson, who led a brief resurgence of Sauk Prairie football two years ago, is now an assistant coach at Fort Atkinson.

Many of the Eagles that once played for Iverson in Sauk Prairie wanted nothing more than to beat their old coach last Friday.

Unfortunately for those Eagles, that didn’t happen.

Sauk Prairie’s girls tennis team split a pair of dual meets last week. 

The Eagles rolled past Lodi, 6-1, on Sept. 7. Madison Edgewood then nipped Sauk Prairie, 4-3, last Thursday.

Here’s a recap of the Eagles’ week:

Heights XC teams fare well at River Valley

The Wisconsin Heights/Barneveld cross country programs fielded full teams at the River Valley Invite last Saturday. And the Vanguards had several solid performances.

Heights/Barneveld’s girls finished ninth out of 14 teams.

Sauk Prairie’s XC teams shine

Jack Boerger keeps running past the competition. And in the process, Sauk Prairie’s boys cross country team keeps impressing.

Boerger won the River Valley Invitational last Saturday and led the Eagles to a fourth place finish at the 16-team event.
