Softball put up a fight in the first half of the game but ultimately lost 3-8 to Viroqua. Fortunately, the JV team played three innings after the varsity game and ended with a 7-1 win.

In a game that looked like it was going to end early, the baseball team held Viroqua for an additional five innings to take a 3-9 loss.

Softball and baseball will be traveling to Viroqua tonight for a rematch.

ETTRICK — The varsity golf team traveled to Ettrick for an outstanding match. The Tigers tied for first with Luther, both teams shooting 175. Sophomore Chris Antonelli shot the best for the team after shooting a 42.
