The 2018 season hasn't been kind to the Spring Valley Cardinals softball team record-wise. Yet, the Cardinals have been able to recognize their small accomplishments as the losses continue to pile up. The 0-12 Cardinals hosted the Boyceville Bulldogs on Tuesday, May 8, to begin their four-game week and were defeated 27-14, but rallied back from a 13-0 deficit with an eight-run fourth inning to avoid being 15-runned.
The Elmwood Raiders went 2-3 in the first week of May, giving them an 8-6 record heading into the final week of their regular season. Glenwood City 5, Elmwood 0 Elmwood's five-game winning streak came to a halt on Tuesday, May 8 when the Raiders were taken down 5-0 by the Glenwood City Hilltoppers. The Raiders (6-4, 4-2) recorded three hits on the night, two of which came from Alyssa Hanson singles. Kendra Kern claimed the Raiders' third hit with a second-inning double. Anna Blanford gave up five runs on 11 hits and struck out six batters while in the circle.

Friday's 9-3 win over the Wolves brought the Cardinals to a 6-4 overall record and put an end to their early May slump. The Cardinals exploited the Wolves with an Alex Johnson double in the top of the third inning, which brought Aaron Borgerding home for Spring Valley's first run of the game. Spring Valley expanded its lead in the fourth with RBIs from Jaydon Nyeggen, Santana Schlegel and Craigen Anderson.
The Prescott Cardinals girls' track and field team found an equally-matched opponent in the St. Croix Falls Saints at the Glenwood City meet where both teams claimed six first-place finishes. The Cardinals managed to nudge past the Saints by claiming 130 team points to SCF's 121 to win the Thursday, May 10 meet. Abby Syverson, Tori Benck, Kjerstin Carlson, the Prescott 4x400-meter relay, Katie Burmood and Haylee Yaeger were Prescott's five champs at Thursday's meet.
The accolades speak for themselves. With a No. 2 state ranking and an undefeated record, it's clear to see that the Prescott Cardinals softball team is multi-talented. The Cardinals (14-0, 6-0) proved just how talented they are on Friday, May 11 when they 10-runned the Ellsworth Panthers (9-4, 8-2) in six innings. Though the Cardinals have shown just how capable they are throughout the season, their 17-4 win over the Panthers was surprising to some. Even to All-State pitcher Kaili Wescott.
