Eagles capture own triangular

Amy Schlimgen didn’t like what she saw. Neither did her Sauk Prairie girls volleyball team.

The Eagles suffered a tough five-set loss to Madison Edgewood on Oct. 1 — one they felt got away.

“The general feeling from the team, and I agree is we didn’t play as a team,” Schlimgen said.

That changed last Saturday.

Onward and upward for Eagles

Sauk Prairie’s girls tennis team had three players advance through the WIAA Badger Subsectional Monday.

Senior Olivia Joyce, who plays No. 3 singles, along with the Eagles’ No. 3 doubles team of junior Faith Holler and freshman Ava Andres all advanced to the Oconomowoc Sectional, which will be held Wednesday.

Sauk Prairie’s cross country teams were running on fumes.

But the Eagles still ran well enough to cruise past Lodi on Sept. 21.

Sauk Prairie’s boys downed Lodi, 21-35, while the Eagles’ girls rolled to a 21-38 win.

The Eagles had competed just 48 hours earlier in a dual meet at Beaver Dam.

Unfortunately for the Eagles, they couldn’t break through in singles play.

Rough start for Sauk Prairie

On one hand, Sauk Prairie’s football team was thrilled to begin its season last Friday. After months of uncertainty, the Eagles were just happy to have football back.

On the other hand, this certainly wasn’t the debut they were looking for.
