Monticello football coach Cully Welter was worried about the Olympia Spartans in week 1, so much so, he thought his team played well in a 42-32 win.

 

The Sages were looking to replace a lot of key pieces to a 2018 3A state champion squad and Coach Welter felt like his team had a good showing against a squad he thought would be much improved in 2019.

 

 

Tonight's opponent, IVC defeated Tolono Unity last week and returns almost their entire team. Coach Welter says there is no clear cut favorite in the conference and there is no clear cut bottom-dweller either.
