Springs Championship Football Team Honored At FDL City Council Meeting

City and state officials honored the St. Mary’s Springs Football team at Wednesday night’s Fond du Lac City Council meeting. Council President Lee Ann Lorrigan presented Coach Bob Hyland and some of his players with a proclamation for their second straight WIAA Division 6 State Championship and 6th overall since becoming a member of the WIAA. Then State Senator Rick Gudex and State Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt presented them with a state resolution in honor of the accomplishment. Gudex congratulated them on the feat. Thiesfeldt noted Springs shares the WIAA record with six titles, but has only been at it since 2000 and had a number of WISAA titles before that. He congratulated Hyland and coaxed him to stay on for a few more seasons.
