Seventeen years is a long time to wait between conference championships.
Monticello wrestling was one team win away against St. Joseph-Ogden from another sweep of the Okaw Valley Conference duals.

Following a disappointing loss to Tuscola in the Holiday Hoopla – one that kept the Sages out of the tournament championship game – Monticello has ripped off a stretch of really good basketball, one that has led to five straight wins since that defeat shortly after Christmas.
