Grantsburg School District superintendent Josh Watt outlined his pride in not just the recent WIAA Division 4 State championship by the Pirate girls fastpitch softball team, but also noting the people behind the scenes and the other athletes and coaches who have distilled so much pride in Grantsburg athletics in recent years:

“We are proud of all of our Grantsburg School District student athletes and coaches (all teams in each season). It takes a great team effort and a lot of hard work to be successful,” Watt said.  “We have experienced coaches who care about the students and really understand the game. The student athletes are determined and committed to being their best.”
