NGM Football to Open 2019 Season Friday, August 23, Against Dodgeville
2019 State Champion Knights Basketball Team to Receive Championship Rings and Sportsmanship Award During Half-Time Presentation
August 22, 2019
Unless you have been in a state of comatose inaction, you are no doubt aware that the 2019 football season is upon us. NFL, College, and yes high school teams are busy in their pre-season camps. The WIAA high school season officially kicks off statewide Friday, August 23. NGM opens the season by playing host to the Dodgers of Dodgeville.
Dodgeville is looking to avenge last year's opening night loss to the Knights. Both teams are looking to start the year with a victory. Patrons can expect a game high in energy and rich with intensity. Game time is 7:00 p.m.
This game will feature two very special half-time presentations. First, your 2019 State Champion New Glarus Knights basketball team will be receiving their championship rings. Most players, including the recently graduated seniors, are expected to be in attendance for the presentation. Second, the WIAA will be presenting to both the school and the community the very coveted WIAA Sportsmanship Award (as given by Rural Mutual Insurance Co.). This award is given to only one school/community that participated in the state basketball tournament this past March. It is given to the school/community that has best exhibited the ideals of true sportsmanship and is only given after meeting strict criteria as voted on by multiple independent sources. You are invited to come celebrate this very special set of accomplishments!
