The RV Golf team began it’s season on April 27 at the Prairie du Chien Golf Course, RV scored 182. Individual scores include, Eli Johnson’s one over par 37, followed by Ashton Price – 46, Connor Fields – 48, Luke Snow – 51, and Jackson Thier – 52. Eli Johnson and Lancaster’s Noah Kirsch tied as medalist for the match.
One of the surest signs that Spring has arrived is the opening of the local golf course. In the absence of a winter golf trip to a warm climate, most golfers put away their clubs for approximately five months. Seeing the snow melt and weather turning for the better leads golfers to a happy place, knowing golf at our local course is not far off. Instead of just watching golf on television, we can actually go out and play golf with our friends. The Spring Green Municipal Golf Course is now open for play, and on good weather days has been quite busy.
Following four games on the road, the RV Boys Basketball team took on Regionals Tuesday against Westby, and went home with a 56-52 win.
Next, the Blackhawks go back on the road to take on the Richland Center Hornets Feb. 19 at 7 p.m. in another WIAA Regional match-up.
RC Hornets defeat RV Blackhawks 43-46 in late game score.
In a normal year it would be surprising to play a team with six more games played than their opponent. In the 2020-21 season, it’s just one of many unusual circumstances surrounding high school athletics. Lancaster came to River Valley last Tuesday night with a record of 10-2, going against the 2-2 Blackhawks.
The River Valley boys basketball team has a history of playing – and often winning – close games against Dodgeville. Last Monday night was no exception, as the Dodgers travelled to the River Valley gym to open their season. While the Blackhawks had played several games, this was both a season and SWC opener for Dodgeville, due to COVID precautions. Those who have grown accustomed to tight games between these rival schools would not be disappointed in this contest, whether they were watching in person or on RVTV.
