Rebuild or reload?

Nine starters from last year’s conference championship team are gone.

A senior class that took Sauk Prairie’s boys soccer to new heights has graduated.

When it comes to expectations, though, nothing has changed for the Eagles.

Eagles hoping to soar again

Clay Iverson has had success coaching football wherever he’s gone.

Iverson inherited a 2-7 team at Pewaukee, then proceeded to have seven consecutive winning seasons. He took over a Mukwonago program that had gone six straight years without reaching the playoffs, then led the Indians to the postseason three out of four years.

Sauk Prairie’s girls swimming and diving team notched a thrilling 89-81 win over Baraboo on Sept. 8.

The Eagles won six of 11 events and used their depth to prevail.

There is experience up and down the roster.

There is talent throughout the gym.

And there’s a head coach who’s certainly done her share of winning.

Is it any wonder that expectations for Sauk Prairie’s girls volleyball team are sky high this season?

Melani Guentherman decided to experiment a bit last Tuesday.

Guentherman, Sauk Prairie’s girls swimming coach, mixed up her lineup against host Watertown on Sept. 1. What Guentherman found is her 2020 Eagles have both talent and depth and can be successful with multiple lineups this fall.

Eagles’ girls tennis team shining early

Sauk Prairie’s girls tennis team hosted its first match of the year on Aug. 31.

And the Eagles put on a show for the home crowd.

Sauk Prairie rolled past Baraboo, 7-0, winning six of the seven matches in straight sets.

Sauk Prairie runners start strong

Years from now, Sauk Prairie cross country coach Andy Sherman probably won’t remember the final results of the Eagles’ dual meet with Waunakee on Sept. 3.

What Sherman will remember is after a lengthy hiatus from sports, the Eagles were competing again. And that alone was glorious.

Heights hands out awards

Wisconsin Heights’ girls basketball team was unable to have a postseason banquet to the COVID-19 pandemic. But the Vanguards did have several awards to distribute, including:
