Mount Horeb’s boys soccer team has high hopes and great aspirations this fall. And the Vikings kicked off their season in style last Thursday.

It’s been quite some time since Mount Horeb-Barneveld had a win like this. A victory over a traditional state power. A win over a team expected to do great things once again. That’s why the Vikings’ 37-30 victory at Racine St. Catherine’s on Aug. 19 was so impressive. MH-B raced to a 13-0 lead,...

Kurt Owen has never paid much attention to Divisions inside high school sports. For example, Mount Horeb’s girls volleyball team — which Owen coaches — typically plays in Division 2.

Someone once coined the phrase that you learn the most from losses. If that’s truly the case, Bret St. Arnauld is tired of learning. St. Arnauld, the football coach at Mount Horeb-Barneveld, has watched his Vikings go just 2-12 the past two seasons. That followed a 12-year run in which the coaching...
