When Mount Horeb is firing on all cylinders, there aren’t many teams that can match up with the Vikings’ long range shooting. Beaver Dam learned that lesson when the teams met in the annual Badger Conference Challenge, a two-day event hosted by Mount Horeb High School last Friday and Saturday....

Believe. That’s the message the coaches for Mount Horeb’s girls basketball team have been preaching to the Vikings. And even though Mount Horeb dropped a 60-58 overtime decision to visiting Sauk Prairie last Thursday, that message had clearly resonated. The Vikings played arguably their best game...

Mount Horeb’s boys swimming team hung tough, but fell to Oregon, 117-42, on Jan. 17. “The meet went amazing,” Vikings coach Bryce Hoppe said. “Oregon is a meters pool, and our team is used to swimming in yards.

That was the Vikings’...
