Verona soccer leading the Big 8 near the midway point of the season

Verona is 3-0 atop the Big 8, with three big conference matches coming up in the next week or so against some of the other conference contenders, including Madison Memorial, Sun Prairie, and Thursday's big match against another state-ranked program, Madison West.

Coach Chris Handrick says the Big 8 is fantastic in its depth and talent, and that the area provides plenty of opportunities to play top teams without having to travel far, citing Verona's loss to D3's McFarland, ranked in this week's Coachs' Poll.

Looking at the conference, after a runner-up finish last year, Verona is right in the thick of things again in 2018, currently leading the Big 8 but with a series of huge matches coming up between Thursday night and next Thursday, with a non-conference date against a solid Sauk Prairie program thrown in for good measure.
