Girls Basketball Team to Honor 1984-1985 Team

On Friday, February 17th the Eagles will battle the Bangor Cardinals in an end of the season conference battle.  At halftime the team will honor the first ever team in school history.   The 1984-85 basketball team started and ended the season with 19 girls.  There were two teams, both coached by Kirby Wong.   The tradition started by these student-athletes has continued to grow for the past 27 seasons.  It is hard to imagine a winter in Cashton without girls basketball.  Fans are encouraged to dress in 1980's attire in honor of "retro" night!

Brian Swiggum Recognized by National Volunteer Organization

Senior Brian Swiggum has been named one of the top runners-up in  The 2012 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards in Wisconsin.  As a result, Brian will receive an engraved bronze Distinguished Finalist medallion and he also is qualified for the President's Volunteer Service Award.  In addition, to being an excellent student Brian has raised nearly $1,000 and collected 5,000 personal items to donate to the poverty-stricken children in Bogota, Columbia through the organization Children's Vision International.  Brian began making and placing donation cans in local stores in 2010 and had created partnerships with Walmart and Dollar General to collect needed items.  This is a great honor for Brian, for our school, and for our community.

For the 11th Time In 13 Years, Cashton Wrestling Is Conference Champs

In the mezzanine at the Cashton Varsity Athletic Facility, a sign hangs high on the wall, reminding Cashton wrestlers of the legacy of the program.

With the tenacity and determination that has come to define the program, our wrestlers once again proved their domination in the region.  We can add "2012" to the list!  Congratulations to the student-athletes, coaching staff, and parents on this hard earned recognition.  We are proud of you.
