Chi-Hi senior wrestler Ross Kaz battled through the consolation bracket to take second place on Saturday at 160 pounds and advance to next week's Division 1 state individual wrestling championships. Bloomer/Colfax's Sawyer Best and Bowen Rothbauer, Stanley-Boyd/Owen-Withee's Blaine Brenner and Cadott's Brayden Sonnentag, Nelson Wahl and Brady Spaeth also took home sectional championships on the way to state.
Six goals in the second period and tight defense pushed the Chi-Hi boys hockey team to an 8-1 win over Wausau West on Tuesday in a Division 1 sectional semifinal matchup, moving the Cardinals one game away from state.
The Chi-Hi boys basketball team outscored Menomonie in the second half by a 43-17 margin to pull away to a 70-39 win, securing the program's first outright Big Rivers Conference championship since 1980.
Ian Olson, Cooper Porzondek, Gabe Vargas and Andrew Olson have years of experience swimming together, a factor that has helped the Chi-Hi competitors advance to this weekend's Division 1 state championships in two events as a team.
