The Wisconsin Heights/Barneveld co-op boys soccer team is off to a 1-4 start.

“We’re a young team in the middle of the rebuilding process,” Vanguards’ coach Tommy Lancaster said. “We have the talent to score goals and we’re working on the discipline and organization needed to defend better.”

The end result isn’t what they hoped for.

But Wisconsin Heights’ girls volleyball team showed resiliency and grit while losing its home opener to Marshall on Aug. 31.

Marshall toppled the Vanguards, 25-20, 25-23, 25-20 in a match that saw Heights fight tooth and nail throughout.

Tennis Eagles win two of three

Sauk Prairie’s girls tennis team won two of three matches last week.

The Eagles dropped a 6-1 decision to Madison Edgewood on Aug. 29. Sauk Prairie rebounded, though, with a 5-2 win over Reedsburg on Aug. 31 and a 5-2 victory over Stoughton on Sept. 1.

Here’s a recap of the Eagles’ two matches:

Eagles’ defense never rests

It wasn’t a work of art, but Sauk Prairie’s 26-0 victory over visiting Portage in a Badger Small Conference opener last Friday night was further proof that this is a whole new flock of screaming Eagles.

It’s been said first impressions are the most lasting.

If that holds true for Sauk Prairie’s boys soccer team, it could be a big year for the Eagles.

Sauk Prairie scored once in each half and keeper Thiago Vieira posted a shutout as the Eagles toppled Sun Prairie East, 2-0, on Aug. 24.

Heights spikers aim for improvement

Emersyn Schaefer and Wisconsin Heights’ girls volleyball team competed at the Monroe Invite last Saturday.

They are young.

They are largely inexperienced.

And they hope to grow throughout the 2023 campaign.

That’s exactly what happened for Wisconsin Heights’ girls volleyball team at the Monroe Invite last Saturday.

Eagles’ tennis team upended by Oregon

Sauk Prairie’s girls tennis team did everything it could to beat the heat.

Beating Oregon was an even tougher tack.

The Eagles moved their meet with the host Panthers to the morning of Aug. 22 due to a heat advisory. While that helped the players a bit, Oregon still had too much firepower and edged Sauk Prairie, 5-2.
