A balanced scoring attack helped the Whitehall girls basketball team take a big lead as they moved to 3-0 on the season. The Norse scored 35 points to take a 20-point lead into halftime then held Coulee Christian to just two baskets in the second half as they went on to win 69-19. With a 3-0 record...

Despite a bit of a sloppy start and an early injury in a nonconference game at Sparta on Monday, the Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau girls basketball team headed into halftime down a single basket.  But after watching Sparta nail back to back three-pointers to open the second half, the inexperienced Red...
There didn’t look to be much of a difference on the scoreboard, but the Independence girls basketball team’s defense wouldn’t let Boyceville threaten late in the game. The Indees had a five-point lead at halftime, but it might as well have been twice as large considering the teams had combined for...

Arcadia coach Lucas Passehl was hoping La Crosse Aquinas would miss, but that didn’t happen nearly enough and the Raiders couldn’t keep up with the Blugolds.  Aquinas ended up shooting 54 percent — including 15-for-29 from three — for the game after a first half in which they scorched the nets with...

G-E-T sophomore Cody Schmitz ran through the midcourt in the first half of a nonconference win over Sparta on Tuesday. Schmitz broke the school record for points with 61.

From the time he was just an elementary-school-aged boy tucked into the bleachers at Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau High School watching the Red Hawk boys basketball team play, Cody Schmitz has idolized the Wagner family. He grew up watching Tim, a 2013 graduate, and Nick, a 2016 graduate, lead G-E-T to...

After a rough start offensively in the first game, the Independence girls basketball team rebounded with a win. The Indees managed just 34 points in a loss to Whitehall last week Tuesday (see story elsewhere in Sports), but responded by scoring 25 in the first half of a 63-20 win over Coulee Region...
The Whitehall boys basketball team is returning most of its roster, looking to make a run at the Dairyland Conference Large Division title. After a slow start to the season, the Norse finished third in the DC-Large last year at 5-5 and had an overall mark of 13-9, eventually losing to Blair-Taylor...
The Arcadia girls basketball team was right in the game, but Altoona took control over the final 11 minutes. The game was tied late, but Altoona outscored the Raiders more than two-to-one down the stretch to pull away for an 18-point win. It won’t get much easier for Arcadia from here. On Monday...
Few Independence players have brought more intensity to the court than Brett Brandenburg did when he suited up for the Indees and now he hopes to use that to take the program to another level as its head coach. “I hope to bring a different energy to this program as the head coach this year,”...
As the Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau High School boys basketball team prepped for its season opener against Sparta last Tuesday, the Red Hawks understood well what it will take to have success this winter. After a 2020-21 season that saw G-E-T finish with a 3-10 record, including a 3-5 run in the Coulee...
