  • Stars of the future learn from heroes of the past, present
    A considerable collection of accomplished athletes contributed on the Spring Grove baseball diamond this summer. Surely, there were stars and heroes of the future among the 100-plus boys and girls playing the game in the summer of 2017.

  • High school boys enjoy second summer of baseball
    One outgrowth of varsity high school baseball returning to Spring Grove as a standalone program has been the opportunity to play summer Junior Legion, age 16 & under, baseball in town as well.

  • Rosaaen returns home, accepts coaching opportunity
    There’s an old saying that “you can’t go home again.” But, if you’re from Spring Grove, Minnesota, then it’s okay. You can go home again.

  • Solie catch secures long-awaited win for 12U boys
    Braedon Solie made a sprinting, back-handed catch in right field that saved the day - and in one respect, the season as well - for the Spring Grove 12 & under baseball boys. With the bases loaded and two outs, that great grab ended the inning, prevented three runs, preserved the Lions’ 9-7 lead and paved the way for a long-elusive victory.

  • Spring Grove defense, O-line shine at football camp
    The Spring Grove Lions football team recently returned from summer camp at Dakota State University in Madison, S.D. The team camp featured 11 teams coming in from different areas.

The Lions finished last season at 9-2 overall, 7-1 in the East Sub-District standings. 

  • SG girls learn, compete at ISU volleyball camp
    The Spring Grove Lions volleyball team finished up preparations for fall practice with their final camp of the summer. Spring Grove volleyball finished last year 17-12 overall, 10-4 in the Southeast Conference, good for second place in the East Division. The Lions bring back a lot of familiar faces from last year’s squad.

  • The Southeast Conference will have one fewer member this coming school year (2017-18), but the league may be adding a team for the next year (2018-19). But there could also be another loss.

  • Junior Legion Lions drop last two
    Spring Grove (4-6) was far too charitable against St. Charles and was out-hit late by a Winona squad that improved to 11-3-1 as the Junior Legion (16 Under) summer baseball season ended with a pair of home losses on July 17 and 20, respectively.

  • Basketball boys pay back G-E-T, stun Minneapolis Southwest late

The Lions closed their La Crosse summer league season at 5-3 with a July 18 split before facing three high-level teams at a July 22 Breakdown Tournament in Rochester.

  • Spring Grove girls close with three wins, tournament championship at Viterbo University last week
    The Spring Grove girls (5-6) avenged two previous setbacks while sweeping all three games and a tournament championship as summer basketball ended at Viterbo on July 18.
