They’re just two games into the Big Rivers Conference football schedule and the Superior High School Spartans already find themselves with their backs against the wall.
The reason? With only five games remaining, the Spartans must win three of those games for an automatic bid into the WIAA playoffs.
The Northwestern High School volleyball team was seeing triple Thursday night when the Tigers played the Ladysmith Lumberjacks. All three games in the Tigers’ 3-0 victory over Ladysmith were won by a score of 25-11.
Only two football teams in the Heart O’ North Conference remain undefeated. Northwestern High School takes on one of them tonight when the Tigers travel to Bloomer to play the Blackhawks.
“I think Bloomer is the real deal,” NHS coach Dennis Scherz said. “I would put them at the top of the conference right now.”
The Superior High School cross country team competed in the 33rd annual Menomonie Relays Saturday afternoon. The Spartan boys finished fifth while the SHS girls fell victim to an injury and illness in finishing eighth.
A sense of urgency hangs in the gym at Superior High School. Little more than a week and a half from its first day of practice, the Spartan volleyball team will open Lake Superior Conference play tonight in a road game at Proctor.
Chris Stovern and Nate Nelson, pole vaulters for Northwestern High School, were overjoyed with their practice site Wednesday afternoon. The sky was clear, the air was warm and the Tigers were preparing for the WIAA Division 2 state track meet in the parking lot of Iron River Elementary School.
“This here, is a lot better than what we’ve had,” said Nelson, a sophomore.
“What we’ve had has been inside the gym. Being out here is great,” Stovern said.
