Third Gold Ball In Basketball For Hilltoppers
It took 20 years, but Onalaska has another gold ball in its trophy case for a state basketball championship...
The Hilltoppers captured their first basketball title at state since 1992 over the weekend, and they brought the trophy to the high school at a welcome-home rally on Sunday.
Onalaska head coach Craig Kowal said the fans were crucial to winning the championship. This is the third state title for Onalaska in boys basketball. Their first championship occurred in 1988. The rally was held outdoors in summer-like weather at the high school football field.
