Maybe it's because I'm in Fond du Lac for the day, but an enormous amount of Fondy Pride has come over me in the last day in a half. I know many of you don't care about Fond du Lac High School athletics, some of you may have never even heard of Fond du Lac High School, and I'm sorry for that. But to my Fond du Lac faithful, just wanted to throw out a couple of updates about how our winter sports teams are doing.
Unfortunately, they are losing. The boys basketball team lost yesterday afternoon to Oshkosh West, a school you may remember from the honorable mention they received on my list of top ten teams I hate. Their season ended with a 72-68 loss.
The boys hockey team lost as well to Appleton United, 4-3, ending their season. The girls hockey team, however, with is combined with Waupun and called the WarBirds, has earned another trip to state. However, in Wisconsin girls hockey, there are only like eight teams and four make it to state. Those numbers aren't completely accurate, but they are pretty close, and forgive me for not spending more time researching girls hockey.
Not to be lost in the shuffle of this weekend is the fact the football team has hired a new coach! We're hoping for a bright future from Nate Lehman, especially after his 1-17 performance the last two years with the North Fond du Lac football team (we can't blame him however, as he was working with North Fond du Lac kids, never easy).
So that's your Fondy Cardinal update for the weekend! (and if you were annoyed by this, just wait until soccer season!!!)
