Brian McIntyre isn't messing around. As Mount Horeb’s cross country coach discusses his goals for the 2022 Vikings, there is no “coach speak.” There’s no tap dancing. McIntyre and the Vikings have extremely high hopes — and they don’t care who knows it. “The potential to have both teams win...

There is no indoor pool in the Village of Mount Horeb. Building numbers remains a work in progress. And there are multiple day-to-day challenges that come with starting a program.

It’s a good news, bad news scenario for Mount Horeb’s girls golf team this fall. First, the good news. The Vikings, who reached the WIAA Division 1 sectionals for the first time in school history last fall, return four of their top six golfers from that team. Mount Horeb, which set several program...
