LUXEMBURG, Wis. — The Luxemburg-Casco football team went 3-6 in 2019, missing the playoffs. Their longtime head coach, Dillon Maney, left to take a new job at Bay Port. Then, the COVID-19 pandemic hit, surrounding all high school sports with a wave of uncertainty.

Through it all, the Spartans have lost only one game. They are 10-1 since the start of a COVID-shortened 2020 season and off to a 4-0 start in 2021, vaulting to a No. 5 ranking in the Division 3 coaches poll.

Players credit new head coach Neil Seering for steering the ship through the uncertainty.

Luxemburg-Casco plays Little Chute Friday night in "The Battle for the LC Trophy." You can watch that game on Sports Showdown, with coverage beginning at 7:00 p.m. on WACY.
