Trojan Athletics

The winter athletic season is off to a great start. Good luck to all the athletes as they continue to perform at a high level!

Boys Basketball

Our boys basketball team is currently 1-1. We fell to a very tough opponent in Martin Luther at home, but followed up with an impressive conference win over McFarland. The boys look to defend their conference title for the 2018-19 season. Best of luck guys!

Girls Basketball

Our girls basketball team is off to an outstanding start of their 2018-19 season. Currently we have an overall record of 3-1, but have won our last 3 games in a row to give us a 3-0 record in conference. We are currently tied with Whitewater as the only 3-0 teams in the conference standings. Best of luck to all of the girls as they continue with a great start.

Wrestling

Our Wrestling team started off strong against New Berlin. Though they gave up 18 points due to missing weight classes, they were still able to pull off an impressive 42-33 victory. They look to continue their success as they wrestle at their home tournament where they will see some of the best teams in the state. Good luck gentlemen!
