  • Girls’ team falls to 4-8 with pair of losses last week

    SPRING VALLEY, WI - What started off a season with a lot of promise has lately seemed like a nightmare for the Spring Valley girls’ basketball team as they have suffered seven straight losses in and out of conference play.

  • DURAND, WI – Going into last week’s games, the Spring Valley boys’ basketball team knew it was going to get tested by two tough teams. But this team has been tested all year and they have shown that when it gets down to crunch time, they aren’t going to be the ones to fold.

    The two wins improve the Cardinals to 9-2 on the season with games this week against second place Elk Mound this past Tuesday and against Elmwood/Plum City tonight, both big games for the Cardinals. Elk Mound sits in sole possession of second place in the Dunn-St. Croix Conference at 4-1, and they would love to move into a tie for first with the Cardinals. E-PC is a game back of Elk Mound after losing to them last week, and they would like to move back into a tie for second place as well with an eye on first.
