SPRING VALLEY, WI - When nature decides to agree, spring golf season can be spectacular! This year, even when nature hasn’t always agreed, it has been just that for the Spring Valley golf team as they have dominated opponents week in and week out. Last week was no exception as the Cardinals won the Whitetail Invite in Colfax last Tuesday, then hosted and won their own Invite on Saturday here at home.

  • The Spring Valley School Board of Education has officially recognized the academic accomplishments of the Class of 2017 Students Graduating with Honors.

    Zachary Maier, son of Craig and Tonya Maier; Kaitlyn Schreiber, daughter of Matthew and Kelly Schreiber; and Tatum Huntress, daughter of Scott Huntress and Annabelle Christianson, share the designation of Co-Valedictorians of the Class of 2017, based on their respective cumulative grade point averages (GPA’s) of 4.0. 

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - This group of seniors had never known anything less than a conference title in baseball, and their come-from-behind dramatic win here last Friday sealed at least a share of their fourth straight title.

    It wasn’t easy though, of course neither was the past week as they lost to Eau Claire Immanuel Lutheran on May 8, then topped Pepin/Alma last Thursday.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - While the weather has been up and down for the spring golf season, the Spring Valley golf team has been pretty steady.

    Led by junior Tyler Leach and senior Zach Boisen, the Cardinals have won six of seven conference meets with just this past Tuesday’s conference meet in Mondovi before the conference finals in Glenwood City on Tuesday, May 16th.

  • COLFAX, WI - Youth has been leading the track program for the Cardinals this season with sophomores leading both boys’ and girls’ teams in individual points in most meets.

    Last week was no exception as those same sophomores led each squad in individual points again.

    Erin Stans led the girls’ team when she took a second place in the 200 meter dash, as the top individual finisher for the girls’ team.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - The Cardinal baseball team responded to a 13-0 loss to Elk Mound with an 11-1 win over second place Pepin/Alma to establish the pecking order in the Dunn-St. Croix Small Division Conference. For now, the road to the conference championship still goes through Spring Valley.

    Unfortunately, the Cardinals followed that up with a loss to a tough Clear Lake team last Friday night by a 12-3 margin.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - Consistent play is still elusive for the Spring Valley softball team. They may put an inning or two together, but there also seems to be one or two bad innings that start with an error and snowball into something worse.

    Last week the Cardinal softball team dropped two games to some tough conference teams, dropping their record to 1-10 overall, 1-8 in conference play.

  • GLENWOOD CITY, WI - The Spring Valley track team competed at the GC Invite last week despite missing a number of key runners for the boys’ team. As a result, the girls’ took second place of five teams while the boys’ finished in fifth place of five teams.

    The girls’ were led by two first place finishes in the relays, the 4x100 and 4x200. Tatum Huntress, Erin Stans, Brianna O’Brien and Maddie Jacobson combined to take first in the 4x200 relay, then Camryn Wegner joined up with Stans, O’Brien and Jacobson for the 4x100 relay win.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - The cardinal girls Fastpitch team has struggled in the field with errors in their recent games in conference play. One bad inning her game has wreaked havoc for the Cardinals with one error snowballing into multiple errors by multiple players, leaving the girls team lacking the confidence to overcome those errors.

    The Cardinals have shown solid play at times, with the potential for much more. Last week, the Cardinals fell to three conference foes.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI – The eighth ranked Spring Valley baseball team finally ran into a tough foe, getting shut out by Elk Mound. How the senior heavy team responds after such a tough loss will show their character. It's the first time a Spring Valley team has lost by the 10-run rule since May 14, 2013..

    The Cardinals did have success last week with a come from behind win over Plum City, and a shutout win over Glenwood City.

  • PLUM CITY, WI - It was a bittersweet week for the Spring Valley softball team last week as they notched their first win of the season over Elmwood for first-year coach Hannah Zurn.

    “We really put things together to get the win,” Zurn said about the Elmwood game. “It showed our girls’ what they need to do to win, how they need to put it all together for a complete game.”

  • BALDWIN, WI - The questions about track meets are always centered around the weather and last week the weather made things really questionable. Snow and sleet on Monday gave way to warmer weather on Tuesday, warm enough for the Spring Valley track team to compete at the Baldwin-Woodville Invite.

    Both boys’ and girls’ teams finished in 11th place of 12 teams in the meet.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI -With a pair of games against conference foes under their belt last week the Spring Valley baseball team has put themselves in first place by not allowing a single run.

    Sean Borgerding, Patrick Cipriano and Brock Bune all pitched shutout innings in a pair of wins last week and the offense managed to 10-run both opponents.

  • HAMMOND, WI - Even with snow on the ground, the spring sports season is here and last week the track team opened their season like all the other spring sports teams did, with a meet on a beautiful day.

    The Cardinal track team, led by coaches Debbie Bowman, Rob Bosshart and Greg Dieckman, got some of their jitters out early with a number of athletes competing for the first time, and returning players easing into the season.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - The golf season may get derailed a little here and there due to weather, but returning individual state champion Tyler Leach is hitting his stride right away.

    The Cardinals competed at the Western Wisconsin Invite at Pheasant Hills and Bristol Ridge last Friday and Saturday, along with 21 other teams.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - The Cardinal baseball team started their run for a fourth straight conference title last week with a split of non-conference games to open the season.

    The Cardinals had solid hitting to offset surrendering some early runs in the opener against Somerset, then struggled to get timely hits in their loss to Baldwin-Woodville.

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - New coaches bring a new sense of hope and new attitudes, new way of doing things and new ideas. It is a change and that is exactly what first year head coach Hannah Zurn is stressing to the Spring Valley softball team this year.

    “There are three words that I am stressing this year; Change, Attitude and Effort,” said Zurn. “I have told the girls over and over again, that this year is going to be a year full of change. There is nothing we can do about the past but learn from it and change. It is water under the bridge. We all need to change together and create a solid foundation."

  • SPRING VALLEY, WI - Repeating a title is never easy, so getting a three-peat is quite a feat. The Spring Valley baseball team will be going for their fourth straight title as Dunn-St. Croix Small Division Conference champions.

    “Our expectations are to play hard and up to our capabilities for seven innings each game,” said Head Coach Brad Baker, now entering his fifth year at the helm of the Cardinals. “ If we do that we should be right in the thick of things for winning another conference title.”
