Sparta’s Matt Biever lands on top of Holmen’s Troy Knutson while making a catch in the fourth quarter of Friday’s game. Biever would maintain his balance, avoid spin off of Knutson to add a few extra yards to his recpetion before being tackled. Biever finished with two catches for 52 yards. The Spartan offense as a whole, however, was held to just over 200 total yards in a 41-21 loss Friday night. Herald photo by Nate Beier.

Little did people think that when the baseball and girls soccer state champions were crowned in June of 2019, it would be the last time in nearly two years that we’d see some sort of spring sport at the high school level. Sure, most track and field teams practiced for a week or so last year. Some...

In a pivotal set during a regional final against your archrival, the last thing a coach wants to do is make an avoidable mistake that costs their team a point and gives the opponent a reprieve.  That’s exactly what happened to first-year Cashton head coach Luke Lukaszewski Saturday against Bangor....
