The Superior High School boys basketball team has been on the doorstep of the Wisconsin state basketball tournament several times during the past three or four years. To take the final step, Spartan coach Dave Kontny said his team has to play its best basketball at the end of the season. To help achieve that goal, he has put together a schedule that could match up with any in the area. "This is the toughest schedule we've had since I've been here," Kontny said.
Despite starting off the season with three losses by a combined score of 26-2, Superior High School girls hockey coach Scott VanDamme said the Spartans are leaps and bounds ahead of last year. After all, the Spartans started off last season getting shutout in their first eight straight games. During that span, Superior's goaltenders were forced to make 254 saves, an average of 42 a game. "You can look at it like we're off to the same kind of start, but we've already scored a couple of goals, and we have cut the number of shots allowed by more than 10 a game," SHS coach Scott VanDamme said.

Just three days later they were playing their season opener at Hudson, which they won 62-51. Now they're in the middle of a three-week wait until hosting Proctor on Dec. 17. "That was a good win and a real good start to the season," SHS coach Dan Schulz said.

The University of Wisconsin-Superior Yellowjackets defeated the Marian College Sabres 5-3 Friday night in a non-conference hockey game at Wessman Arena. After three goals total were scored in the first two periods, things got wild in a five-goal third period, including four goals in the final five minutes of the game.

A balanced scoring attack led the University of Wisconsin-Superior men's basketball team to a shocking 93-80 victory over the University of Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs Tuesday night before 479 fans at Romano Gymnasium.

Jake Smith had a huge night for UWS, scoring a game-high 33 points and grabbing 11 rebounds. "This is big, so big that I used to hear they played these games at the DECC because there were so many people who came out," Smith said.
Behind Garrett Tinkham's first collegiate shutout, the University of Wisconsin-Superior men's hockey team defeated the UW-Eau Claire Blugolds 3-0 Saturday night at Wessman Arena. Tinkham's shutout didn't come easy. Not only did the freshman from Paradise, Tex., need to come up with 22 saves in the victory, but the Yellowjackets had to kill off eight Blugold power plays in the process. "This is definitely a great experience, something I'll remember for a long time," Tinkham said.
