ELMWOOD - Elmwood/Plum City head football coach Jerry Hannack will be inducted into the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association (WFCA) next March in Madison. Hannack will be one of eight coaches to be inducted into the hall that night, along with assistant coaches, collage coaches and others to be honored at the event which will be held at the Marriott West hotel on March 29, 2014. He had been a long time assistant at Spring Valley and Elmwood high schools and became head coach at Elmwood in 1998.
SPRING VALLEY - Despite losing game one, Spring Valley High School's volleyball team dominated games two through four for a 3-1 win over Mondovi Thursday evening. The Buffaloes had outscored SV 10-3 to win game one 25-20 but the remainder of the match was dominated by the Cardinals with good serving and control of the net area with kill after kill coming SV hitters Emily Boisen, Becky Fesenmaier, Aly Lee and Nevada Schlegel. Mondovi also hurt themselves with a good number of net violations.

Call it a playoff to get into the playoffs. If Elmwood/Plum City wins Friday's game at Clayton they will do no worse than 3-3 in the Lakeland South Conference and should get a bid to the WiAA Playoffs as they did last year with a similar record. That would make it four Pierce County teams with playoff berths. Of course EPC would still be able to clinch a bid the following week but they would prefer not to have to go into a ballgame against the state's No. 5 ranked team in Division 7 in undefeated Alma/Pepin in th elast game of the regular season with so much at stake.
MENOMONIE - UW-Stout's Jessop Keene< http://athletics.uwstout.edu/roster.aspx?rp_id=2981 > (Sr, Ellsworth/Prescott) was the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference's top finisher at the UW-Eau Claire Blugold Open and was selected as the WIAC men's cross country runner of the week. Keene shaved off 16 seconds to set a new personal best, finishing in a time of 24-minutes, 49.61 seconds, for a third place finish.
Prescott's Amanda Murphy had another top place finish at the Amery Invitational Tuesday. Murphy finished fifth in a time of 17:04. Teammates Annika Carlson and Emmie Carpenter were also in the top 25 as they finished 23rd and 25th respectfully. As a team PHS took seventh out of the 16 teams competing. Elmwood/Plum City was 11th led by a 43rd place by Josie Tiffany in 19:09. EPC's Noah Wells finished 18th in the meet in 18:49.
SPRING VALLEY - "Just win baby," as the old Al Davis phrase goes, is really all Spring Valley has to do from now until the end of the regular season if it wants the Dunn-St. Croix Conference title outright. And so long as the Cardinals keep doing so, tonight against Mondovi at home and Tuesday at Colfax that's exactly what will happen. The match against the Buffaloes will start at 7 p.m. and is SV's final regular season home match this season. Valley knocked back Boyceville on Tuesday with an impressive 3-0 sweep on the road. The game scores were 25-17, 25-19 and 25-23.
