Sauk Prairie’s swimmers shine

It had been two weeks since Sauk Prairie’s girls swimming team had a meet.

So when the Eagles got back in the pool on Oct. 6, they were ready to roll.

Sauk Prairie won every event and had the top two finishers in 10 of 11 competitions and defeated River Valley/Richland Center, 134-31.

Ready for the push

The WIAA Division 1 cross country subsectionals are on Oct. 20. Sectionals will be held Oct. 24.

And it certainly appears that Sauk Prairie is ready.

The Eagles’ boys won the thrilling Baraboo Triangular on Oct. 16. Sauk Prairie finished with 30 points to edge Watertown (31) and host Baraboo (72).

But there was improvement, and these days, that’s something for Sauk Prairie’s football team.

Host Watertown toppled Sauk Prairie, 43-16, last Friday. The Eagles fell to 0-3 on the young season.
