SPRING VALLEY, WI - Some opponents are just too good to overcome; that was the case last Thursday as Mother Nature was able to beat both Spring Valley and Elk Mound and cause the game to be rescheduled to February 19th.

The Cardinals also suffered a loss to former D-SC rival St. Croix Central in their lone game of the week. The non-conference loss dropped the Cardinals to 4-7 overall, while keeping them at 1-3 in conference play.

  • CHIPPEWA FALLS, WI - The wrestling season is hitting stride and many of the Spring Valley/Elmwood wrestlers are beginning to take their experience and get some wins.

    The Cardinals had their best tournament showing of the season yet as they place fifth at the Chi Hi Invite here this past weekend.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - It wasn’t all a total loss for the Cardinal boys’ team in the last few weeks. While they lost two games last week, including a conference tilt, they did manage a nice win over Northwood at the Clayton Holiday Invite and have had some good variety in scoring on the team.

    The final score was closer than the game was as Northwood managed to limit the Cardinals to just two points over the final 11 minutes of the game, and those came from the free throw line with just 2.2 seconds left in the game.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI – Coming out of the holiday break, the Spring Valley girls’ basketball team is still working hard for their first win of the season.

    Unfortunately, they faced the number three ranked and undefeated team in the state in Durand, and a team with a Division One basketball recruit in Stanley-Boyd last week. It was an uphill battle.

  • NEW RICHMOND, WI - New Richmond Invitational
    The Spring Valley/Elmwood wrestling team finished ninth of ten teams at the recent New Richmond Invitational meet here last week against some really tough competition.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - While the wins have been hard to come by for the Spring Valley girls’ basketball team, the effort has been there every step of the way in every game.

    Last week the Cardinals first win of the season continued to elude them as they fell in non-conference action to Independence High School, then suffered a tough loss to Mondovi in Dunn-St. Croix Conference action.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI – The Spring Valley boys’ basketball team may have just a 1-2 record in the Dunn-St. Croix Conference, but they have the potential to be right on top of the conference with one of the teams they lost to.

    Last week the Cardinals lost to Colfax on Tuesday and then beat Mondovi on Friday to see their record set at 1-2 in conference play and 3-4 overall. In three of their four losses, the Cardinals have been within striking distance of taking the lead within the last minute of the game, including the loss to Colfax last week.

  • WISCONSIN DELLS, WI - In their second week of competition, the Spring Valley/Elmwood wrestling team made significant strides towards improving.

    The Cardinals entered the Dells Duals in Pool E with Lomira, Adams-Friendship, Whitnall and New Lisbon, as well as the opportunity to wrestle Iowa Grant/Highland.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - The week started well enough for the boys’ basketball team last week, and despite playing well in the next two games dropped both by just a single basket.

    The Cardinals opened up with a big first half, jumping out to a 30-17 halftime lead and never really looking back.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI – The development and improvement is there for the Spring Valley girls’ basketball team, according to Head Coach Sean Hoolihan.

    “We are seeing the improvements we need to see, we have the effort,” he said. “We need to see it from the beginning of the game to the end of the game, for 36 minutes, not 28.”

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - The improvement is coming from game to game for the Spring Valley girls’ basketball team, even if the wins aren’t coming yet.

    “I am proud of the improvements the team is making,” said Head Coach Sean Hoolihan following the Cardinals’ 44-37 loss to Ellsworth last week.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI – What an up-and-down week for the Spring Valley boys’ basketball team in their first week of play.

    Valley opened the season on the road with a big win over Eau Claire Immanuel Lutheran on Tuesday, then got a reality check from a very good Clear Lake team on Thursday.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - The growing pains continue for the young Spring Valley girls’ basketball team.

    Head Coach Sean Hoolihan is still sorting through his bench to figure out who works best with who on the floor consistently.

    “We have some players that do some things well, but we need to get consistent play,” the Coach said. “We also need to get a sense of urgency defensively.”

  • Leach signs National Letter of Intent with Marquette University

    SPRING VALLEY, WI – It isn’t every day that a student in a small school signs a letter of intent to play a college sport at the division one level, very rare in fact.

  • PEPIN, WI – The girls’ basketball season is underway, and unfortunately for the Cardinals, it started with a loss. Pepin/Alma came out of the back-and-forth game with the win that was closer than the final score showed.

    The two teams battled evenly throughout the game, each taking a little run to get a few points up on the other, and vice versa. In the end, the Cardinals struggles at the free throw line and the Eagles making their shots from the stripe more consistently was the difference.
