There were no pearls of wisdom.
Nothing you’ll hear the next time Hollywood chooses to make a football movie.

Sept. 15, 2022.
That date will forever be a memorable one for Mount Horeb’s girls swimming program.
The Vikings went to the McFarland Triangular and notched a 109-34 win over Portage. After years of forming a co-op with Verona, that marked the first win for Mount Horeb as an independent program.
They were more competitive.
They were in every game.
But Mount Horeb’s boys soccer team couldn’t get over the hump and dropped three games last week.
The Vikings fell, 2-1, to Sauk Prairie on Sept. 13. Milton toppled Mount Horeb, 2-0, on Sept. 15.
And Sugar River bested the Vikings, 3-0, on Sept....

Mount Horeb’s girls golf coach was thrilled his Vikings set a new school-record when they shot a 183 on Sept. 8 at Norsk Golf Club. Unfortunately for Mount Horeb, visiting Oregon one-upped the Vikings and carded a 165.
“Unfortunately, there’s no defense in golf,” Krentz...
