Marathon Baseball– The Red Raiders got a big Marawood-South win in walk off fashion over Assumption on Friday to keep things tight in the conference standings.
SPASH Softball– The Panthers seem to be coming into their own as they continue to pound Wisconsin Valley Conference opponents and find a way to win against some of the best non-conference squads in the state. SPASH’s wins over Bay Port and Chippewa Falls, respectively, represent a high-water mark for the Panthers this season.
Assumption Softball– Assumption has had a remarkable season so far. They have dangerous hitters up and down their line up and have been getting good pitching from Kendall Schill. The Royals are currently undefeated and looking to keep up the momentum as they head into the second half of their schedule.
Athens Softball– Athens picked up a 8-3 win over Rib Lake as Kenadi Diedrich, Kierra Penney and Bernie Lira led the way. Coupled with wins over Prentice and Chequamegon, Athens is on a roll. The Blue Jays are currently at the top of the Marawood-North standings with a 4-0 conference mark.
Weyauwega-Fremont Softball– The Indians are at the top of a tough field in the CWC-8 with a 7-1 mark in the conference as of April 30. Kiley Akey led the way in the circle for W-F as they came up with a 1-0 win over Pacelli last week.
D. C. Everest Girls Soccer– The Evergreens currently own a 5-0 mark in the Wisconsin Valley Conference and have an important tilt with also-unbeaten Wisconsin Rapids on May 2. The Evergreens picked up a nice win over SPASH last week to keep their conference record unblemished.
