MONROE - The Cheesemakers won the Badger Challenge for the fifth time in the last six years and coach Dave Hirsbrunner will get to keep the traveling team trophy on his shelf. In a race that is scored based on the top-five times, the Cheesemakers (91 minutes, 8 seconds) edged Fort Atkinson for the title by 35 seconds."We weren't given a chance by anyone at the beginning of the season," Hirsbrunner said. "I don't think a lot of people thought we could win this. Now it (the trophy) will be on my shelf five of the last six years."
