The dream season rolls on.

A championship is quickly moving from fantasy to reality.

Now, Sauk Prairie’s Home Talent League team wants to be sure it continues to do one thing — focus.

Eagles win Janesville Tournament

Sauk Prairie’s girls volleyball team won the Janesville Cougar-Viking Tournament last weekend.

Sauk Prairie’s girls volleyball team has high hopes and great aspirations this fall.

And the Eagles kicked off their season in style last weekend.

Sauk Prairie won the Janesville Cougar-Viking Tournament Gold Division.

The Eagles went 11-0 on the weekend and defeated Edgerton in the finals, 25-17, 25-10.

It was a perfect night to open the prep football season when the Sauk Prairie Eagles and first-year head coach Randy Wallace traveled to Monroe for a non-conference battle last Friday.

However, the final numbers on the scoreboard made the trip home a little less rewarding.

Heights runners aim high

There are standouts at the top of the lineup.

There’s strength in the middle. And there are newcomers that could help.

That’s why Wisconsin Heights’ cross country teams have high hopes this fall. The Vanguards begin their new season Saturday at the Iowa-Grant Invite.

Division 1 or 2?

Really, Andy Sherman doesn’t care.

Sauk Prairie’s cross country teams have bounced between the two divisions for years, and will be in Division 1 this fall. While that certainly creates greater challenges, Sherman — who coaches both of the Eagles’ teams — doesn’t mind one bit.

Heights spikers have lofty ambitions

Nothing about girls volleyball in the spring felt “normal” to Wisconsin Heights coach Kala O’Connell.

The Vanguards were among the 26% of schools that elected to move volleyball from the fall to the spring due to COVID-19 restrictions. And Heights never could get in a groove.

Heights football faces challenges

Every high school football team faces challenges when a new season rolls around.

It would be hard, though, to imagine many obstacles tougher than what Wisconsin Heights has recently gone through.

Eagles’ spikers aiming for the top

Twelve months ago, Sauk Prairie girls volleyball coach Amy Schlimgen stood in front of her team and offered up a simple message.

“I said, ‘I think we are on our way to be a state-contending program,’ ” Schlimgen said.

Getting their kicks

When we saw them last, there were hugs, tears of joy and one massive celebration.

Sauk Prairie’s boys soccer team came within one win of the WIAA Division 2 state championship, falling to Roncalli/Two Rivers in the title match. Now, with the majority of that team back, the Eagles will have extremely lofty goals in 2021.

Twins rally, reach Final Four

Sauk Prairie’s Home Talent League team clinched a spot in the Final Four thanks to a 10-9 win over Ashton in 10 innings on Sunday,

SAUK CITY – Alex Mayer strode to home plate with two outs and Benjamin Lenerz on second base in the bottom of the 10th inning, intent on delivering the game-winning hit for the host Sauk Prairie Twins on a warm and sunny Sunday afternoon.
