PEPIN, WI – The spring sports’ season has been decimated by weather so far this year, with Mother Nature winning most games in all sports throughout the state.

Fortunately, the Spring Valley softball team was able to get one game in last week before the massive snowstorm that came in over the weekend forced more postponements.

  • DURAND, WI – The Spring Valley baseball team has been the conference champions for the past four years in the Dunn-St. Croix Small Conference. This year, however, there is just one D-SC conference, not a large and small. The Cardinals also only return one-starter from last year, so there are a lot of fresh players in new places and new opportunities for the team.

    Unfortunately, the team started with a tough 4-2 loss on the road in Durand last week with sophomore Aaron Borgerding taking the loss in the game that had four pitchers take the mound for Valley.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - For what was supposed to be a rebuilding year, the Spring Valley boys’ basketball team shocked a few teams with a second place finish in the Dunn-St. Croix Conference this year with an 8-6 record.

    Junior Dylan Bosshart and sophomore Aaron Borgerding led the Cardinals with second-team all conference honors. It is the second year in a row for both players to receive all-conference recognition. Bosshart was a second team selection last year and Borgerding received honorable mention status as a freshman.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - Record-wise it wasn’t the best season for the Spring Valley girls’ basketball team, but it wasn’t for any lack of effort given.

    The Cardinals finished the season with a 1-22 record and some tough losses in conference play (three overtime losses).

    Despite the losses, there is much to build on with this team. They lose just two seniors and will hopefully return a completely healthy squad that will include sophomore Lexi Johansen.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - For the first time in many years, there was not a D-SC/BRC wrestling challenge this year, which meant the conference coaches had to meet to select All-Conference teams.

    The top two teams in the conference (there are only five teams in the conference) dominated the All-Conference selections. Boyceville and Glenwood City had nine and seven All-Conference selections respectively.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - When it comes to the WIAA tournament, anything can happen. Unfortunately, that ‘anything’ happened to the Spring Valley boys’ basketball team last week when they encountered a hot-shooting Chetek-Weyerhaeuser team. The end result was a 68-52 loss to end the Cardinals 2017-18 campaign.

    The Bulldogs came into the game after a thrilling 55-54 win over Spooner to end the regular season, while the Cardinals were coming off a lackluster loss to Boyceville, 68-60.

  • MADISON, WI - No wrestler wants to be a one-and-done at the WIAA State wrestling meet, unfortunately, many are. But, for many, taking away that state experience is the most important thing.

    Spring Valley junior Carter Merth was able to get that experience last week when he earned the right to wrestle at the WIAA Individual State Tournament in Division Three at 170 pounds.

  • BOYCEVILLE, WI - For the first time in a very long time, the Spring Valley boys’ basketball team swept the season series from Elk Mound to be give them some momentum going into the playoffs. Just last-place Boyceville stood in their way. Unfortunately, the Cardinals had one of their worst games of the season at Boyceville where nothing seemed to go right.

  • CAMERON, WI - All good things must come to an end, even when the season is not as good as you think it could have been.

    The Spring Valley girls’ basketball team finished their season this past Tuesday with an opening round loss in the WIAA Tournament to end their season with a 1-22 record. The Cardinals struggled in many games for points, but the effort this team gave, from the opening tip to the final buzzer, of every game is something to be commended.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - A pair of conference wins has thrust the Spring Valley boys’ basketball team into a tie for second place in the conference with just two games left to play. The wins also guaranteed Spring Valley the opportunity to host the opening round of the WIAA playoffs on Tuesday against Chetek-Weyerhaeuser.

  • OSCEOLA, WI - The Spring Valley/Elmwood wrestling team is going to be represented in Madison this weekend as junior Cater Merth earned the right to make the trip.

    Merth has been flirting with success all season long for the Cardinals, as well as struggling through some injuries also.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - It has been a different season for the Spring Valley/Elmwood wrestling team this year. It hasn’t been a dominant season like it has in previous years, but the season is still going on for two wrestlers from the SV/E team.

    Senior Nick Hofacker and junior Carter Merth are both advancing to the individual sectionals after taking second place last week in their respective weights. Unfortunately, this puts an end to the season for the team, as the Cardinals string of regional wins comes to an end.

  • Girls’ hoops drops pair to conference foes, travel to Cameron for WIAA opener

    SPRING VALLEY, WI - The Cardinal girls’ hoops team struggled in their pair of games last week, but anytime you open the week going up against the fourth ranked team in the state and you only have one win, well that kind of sets the tone.

  • SVHS students participate in the All-Conference Honors Choir and Band

    SPRING VALLEY, WI – Select members of the Spring Valley High School Choir and Band participated in the Dunn-St. Croix All-Conference Honor’s Project this past January 24 and January 27, 2018 at Mondovi High School.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - In the final week of competition prior to the WIAA Regional action, which is this Saturday in Spring Valley by the way, the Cardinals earned a split of their final two duals of the season.

    SV/E 37, Durand 28
    It was closer than it needed to be, but neither team could fill out a full roster and the Cardinals were able to dress more wrestlers than the bigger Durand school could for the win.
