MINERAL POINT – With the likes of Prairie du Chien, Fennimore and Mineral Point competing at last Saturday’s SWC/SWAL Clash, Lancaster coach Brad Sturmer knew the chances of a team title were unlikely.

In the latest team rankings, Prairie du Chien is ranked third in the state’s division 2 field, while Fennimore is ranked second in D3 and Mineral Point sixth.

It’s only fitting then, that Prairie du Chien won last Saturday’s clash with a team score of 272.5, with Mineral Point (249.5) taking second and Fennimore (239) third.

“It’s a tough tournament when you look at the top teams in both conferences,” coach Sturmer said. “Prairie had a nice tournament and has a solid team. I could see them making a pretty good run at a team state title this year.”
