Spring Valley 2011 Football Team Advances Playoffs
Coached by our Cousin Matt Ducklow
Published November 3rd, 2011
The Spring Valley 2011 football season has been quite successful and it is not over yet. Coach Matt Ducklow has the Cardinal's advancing into the third round of the Wisconsin State High School football playoffs. In the first round of the tournament, Spring Valley traveled to Minong in far northern western Wisconsin. They easily handled the Evergreens out scoring them 39-0. The following week Spring Valley played host the Marathon Red Raiders. Marathon is a small community not far from Wausau. The game was one-sided rout with a score of 42-6. On November 4th, the Cardinals take on the Ramblers from Regis High School. The game is to be played on Friday night Carson Park under the lights in Eau Claire.
If the Cardinals defeat Regis, they advance to the semi-finals in Level 6 play. (Level 6 indicates the student body size of the schools, matching liked sized schools in the tournament). Two more wins and they become crowned state champions! Below is a link to a short interview of Matt Ducklow done by TV station WEAU out of Eau Claire and a nice play-by-play article published by the Spring Valley Sun (under mygateway.news).
Matt is cousin to all Ducklows. He descends from George and Emma Ducklow. Oh, and who is the Cardinal's assistant coach? That happens to be a Ducklow too -- Matt's brother Corey. Congratulations to our cousins Matt, Corey and the entire community of Spring Valley!
