Week 1 Rushing Leaders

Lodi posted a 32-11 victory over Edgerton to open the spring football season, and the Blue Devils' defense certainly came up big. Also key to the victory was the impressive rushing performance by junior Lucas Heyroth, who looks to be the latest in a long line of star running backs at Lodi. He carried the ball 27 times for 261 yards to go with four touchdowns, including a pair of 26-yard scores in the second half to help put the game away.

Week 1 Receiving Leaders

Belleville has had some outstanding receivers in recent seasons and Anthony Nolden is adding his name to the list. The junior wideout caught four passes in a 19-12 win over Benton/Scales Mound/Shullsburg, with three of them going for touchdowns as he finished with 152 receiving yards. His 32-yard scoring catch from Trevor Syse in the fourth quarter proved to be the game-winner.
