Three new champions were crowned Thursday at the state high school football finals in Madison.

Edgar was the only returning champ to repeat, as the Wildcats survived a 6-3 defensive battle against Fond du Lac Springs for the Division 6 crown.

Kyle Schueller had a four-yard touchdown run on Edgar's opening drive. The Wildcats finished 14-0 while holding 11 opponents to under seven points.

The only other returning champ to play yesterday was Burlington Catholic Central - and they got crushed by Gilman 42-13 in the Division 7 final. Cody Rosemeyer ran for 218 yards and four touchdowns for Gilman.

In the Division 5 title game, Brillion beat Colby 31-10 in a battle of previously-undefeated teams. Justin Zeamer broke a 3-3 tie by scoring on a reverse play for Brillion during the second-half kick-off.

Thursday night, Kewaunee won its first state title by topping Brodhead-Juda 41-21 in the Division 4 contest. Craig Christman ran for 169 yards and three touchdowns.

The three divisions with the highest enrollments will play their championship games today at Camp Randall Stadium - and at least two new champs will be crowned. Unbeaten West De Pere plays Waukesha Catholic Memorial at 10 a.m. for the Division 3 title.

Returning champion Waunakee plays Cedarburg at 1 p.m. for the D-2 title. At 4 p.m., Stevens Point takes on Waukesha West for the Division 1 championship.
