DARLINGTON — The New Glarus/Darlington rivalry has brought upon some high-quality basketball over the past few years. Darlington held an 12-4 advantage in the series, dating back to the 2008 playoff matchup. The last time the Knights beat the Redbirds was Feb. 6, 2018, just a month before New Glarus won the school’s first ever state championship.
