The Spring Grove volleyball team has been busy preparing for the upcoming season after posting 17 wins a year ago and finishing second in the Southeast Conference East Division before the season closed out in the quarterfinal round of the Sub-section 1A East Tournament. The good news for Lion fans is a lot of experience is returning for this season’s campaign.

The good news for Lion fans is a lot of experience is returning for this season’s campaign.

  • Murphy, Olerud deliver for Luther defense
    Athletes from Spring Grove are continuing to step up their level of competition and playing well in collegiate sports. Last school year (2016-17), there were two women and four men spread across four college sports - softball, volleyball, football and basketball. Four of the six athletes from Spring Grove played college sports at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa.

  • Soccer boys depend on a veteran defense
    Defense will be an early season strength for the Caledonia/Spring Grove/Houston boys soccer team this fall. The Warriors bring back a lot of experience on defense and have a couple of experienced players to build the offense around.

  • Volleyball, soccer open season; gridders scrimmage this week
    Local autumn athletes will face foes this week with season openers for high school volleyball and boys soccer. Guys on the gridiron look forward to annual preseason scrimmages. Look for the complete Spring Grove schedules on the Fall Sports Salute in this issue.

  • Bratland, Ellingson earn athletic acclaim at Luther College
    Former Spring Grove High School athletes are continuing to step up their level of competition and playing well in collegiate sports. Last school year (2016-17), there were two women and four men spread across four college sports - softball, volleyball, football and basketball. Four of the six former Lion athletes competed for Luther College in Decorah, Iowa.

  • State title, All-State honors highlight Lions sports last year
    As some 2017-18 sports teams begin practices this week, this is a look back at Lion athletic teams last school year (2016-17). Spring Grove High School athletes participated in 10 sports - six stand-alone squads (volleyball, football, girls basketball, boys basketball, trap shooting, baseball) and four programs shared with and hosted by Caledonia (softball, boys soccer, girls soccer, boys track).

  • 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.

  • Lions make championship finals, overtaken late by Lanesboro
    The Spring Grove 7th grade & under team never trailed in three tournament games until being overtaken late in a 3-2 loss in the championship game of the Fillmore and Houston County Little League Tournament in Spring Valley on July 27. 

  • 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. Spring Grove took 18 players and four coaches over to South Dakota to get some work in before official fall practice begins. 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.
