SPENCER – The Spencer/Columbus Catholic football team has become a fixture in the WIAA postseason during the past decade.


This season, the Rockets move into a new conference with a strong senior class.

Spencer/Columbus opens its season Friday, Sept. 25, at Nekoosa before its home opener Oct. 2 against Manawa and a big matchup with Stratford at Spencer High School on Oct. 9.


Head coach Jason Gorst said the team is focused on staying healthy to ensure it can play a full season.


“We are going above and beyond the WIAA protocols to do everything in our power to get on the game field,” Gorst said. “We have a terrific senior class that is very talented and committed. We are hoping to have a good experience for them.”
