Good athletes show up.
Great athletes turn it up.
Exceptional athletes help others rise up!
Our Middle School G-E-T Cross Country Team is Exceptional!Thank you to our fabulous fifty strong who volunteered their time today to help the Galesville Public Library. Boxes upon boxes needed to be carried up from the basement to the meeting room - and when we asked our team if they wanted to help they said YES!! They said: "Can we carry more than one box?" "What else is there to do?" "How else can we help?" As coaches we see all kinds of strength - today we saw strength of heart and community. KUDOS Ladies and Gentlemen - ye may be small but you are mighty and your acts can change the world!
Coach Gold, Coach Sorenson & Coach Swift
- Congrats to the Varsity Baseball team:
What a great season baseball had. They lost in extra innings to the number one seed in the sectionals tonight. But to appreciate this you really have to start at the beginning. A brand new first year head coach, assisted by another new young coach, and the worst spring weather we have seen in a decade with lots of snow and canceled games. After a few struggles in the beginning, they really started to put it together. They won I think 11 out of their last 12 games before the sectional game today. Every time I was around these young men they seemed to be enjoying themselves and loving the game. Thank you to these young men and amazing coaches for providing such a great atmosphere to come and watch some tremendous baseball. You are setting the example of what G-E-T baseball has become and will continue to remain.
Red Hawks won their semi-regional game against Altoona 5-2. They will play Black River Falls @ home on May 30 at 5:00pm in the Regional final.
G-E-T won their sub-regional game against La Crosse Logan 3-0.

- 'I can really only use one word to describe our track teams performance yesterday at regionals. "Domination" There are 18 events in track including relays. The boys sent a sectional qualifier out of 15 of those (and missed a tie in shot for another). They had multiple qualifiers in several events and easily won the regional as a team
The girls will be represented at sectionals by 6 girls in 6 events.This included several first places as well. Dana Feyen will continue her run to defend her state titles.Both teams will now compete in sectionals on Thursday in Lancaster. Good luck and way to represent Red Hawk Nation!' Pete Peterson, AD

- ‘I want to take a second and congratulate the Wrestling Team on their trip to the state tournament. Unfortunately, they lost to the eventual state champions Luxemburg-Casco. As a coach, you find it hard to handle these losses. I saw this same thing in the girls game the other night. The coach is proud of your team and all the effort they have put forth and at the same time disappointed in the outcome and think about what you could have done better or different.At times like this, you need to take a step back and appreciate what we have. We have a great group of parents that I couldn’t be prouder of. We have amazing fans and know they had our backs win or lose. Most importantly, we have awesome kids. They are always respectful and willing to go the extra mile. On behalf of the Titan Wrestling Family, “Thank You!” for a great year.’ – Pete Peterson
- Congratulations to Ben Behan and Nathan Riehle. They have been selected to participate in the 2018 WFCA All-Star Charity Football Game benefiting Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. They will be playing in this prestigious event on July 21, 2018 at J.J. Keller Field at Titan Stadium on the campus of UW-Oshkosh. Over the past eleven years, the partnership between WFCA and Children’s Hospital has raised more than $3.5 million.
The honor of being chosen to play in this game is twofold. They will have the opportunity to play football with some of the best high school players in the state; every year more than 400 athletes are nominated, but only 220 are chosen to play. Second, and more importantly, they get to make a difference in the lives of other kids by helping to raise money for the patient care programs at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. Last year, there were more than 350,000 patient visits to Children’s Hospital — some are your classmates, some are in your family, and some of these kids could be you. Way to go Ben and Nate!
