Back To Back Champs!
St. Mary’s Springs won their 2nd straight WIAA Division Six state football championship with a 24-14 win over Eau Claire Regis on Thursday afternoon at Camp Randall Stadium. Senior Even Henderson ran for the team’s first score of the game and then threw 2nd quarter TD passes to Eric Feldner and Ryan Grandlic.
