Eau Claire North senior Arik Skifstad broke the Huskies’ school record in the 200-meter dash, racing to a 22.11-second place finish at Monday’s WIAA Division 1 Regional in Superior.

Skifstad and Pick weren’t done. They won a pair of relays, including a

Eau Claire North has clinched a share of the Big Rivers Conference championship. That’s not good enough for the Huskies. “I told the kids that Big Rivers baseball is best in the state and offered my congratulations,” coach Bob Johnson said. “But I’d like to see only one name on the plaque and we want to take care of that business tomorrow (today).” After sweeping Hudson 7-2 and 14-2 in five innings Monday at Carson Park, the Huskies get that chance when
CADOTT — The race for the boys Division 3 110-meter hurdles state championship might take on a green hue this June. At least that’s the goal for Regis hurdlers Isaac Michels and Jack Nicolai. The Ramblers juniors have posted two of the fastest times in the event in Division 3 this season, and flexed their might at regionals on Monday. Michels won the regional championship in the 110 and 300 hurdles, and Nicolai finished in second place in both events. “I think we’re

Glenn St. Arnault, affectionately known as the “Good Saint,” was a mighty big man — not only in physical stature. How big? “He is on the Mt. Rushmore of Eau Claire baseball,” is the way it was put by Mark Faanes, who has been involved with city American Legion ball for three decades. For nearly 60 years, St. Arnault played a key role at all levels of the sport from Little League on up. And as a board member of the Eau Claire Cavaliers, he was still active at

INDIANAPOLIS — Ed Carpenter and Danica Patrick got exactly what they needed in qualifying Sunday. Now comes the hard part: Finding a way to victory lane next weekend. After crashing Roger Penske’s front-row party by claiming his third Indianapolis 500 pole-winning run and watching his teammate, Patrick, qualify seventh for the final start of her career, Carpenter quickly turned his attention to hosting a bigger family celebration at the track his stepfather’s family owns.
