LaFleur Fills Rykken’s Shoes

Dawn LaFleur had some large shoes to fill this year as the new PE teacher at the Black River Falls High School.

After Mary Rykken had a strong impact in Black River Falls for 28 years, this year it was time to find new feet to take Mrs. Rykken’s spot.

LaFleur came to BRFHS from Alaska. She has two kids who are currently enrolled in West Salem.

LaFleur is excited to revamp the PE program by buying new equipment for the school and bringing in a positive attitude to the high school. She has new curriculum to teach and is eager to continue her teaching career at the school.

Football team keeps winning streak

Fire up, get hot, will the football boys go to the top?

Coming off of a two-game winning streak, the high school football team is feeling pretty confident. After a long season of losses in 2016, the Tigers were getting frustrated, it was hard for them to want to stay in the game.

The coaches kept them working hard by starting their “chop wood and carry water” warm up, where the boys do push-ups and carry water across the field. This led them to two victories in 2017, homecoming vs Luther, and their last game against Arcadia.

Do the Tigers have what it takes to continue this streak?
