Algoma High School's Champion of Champions Series: 1983 Algoma Baseball

Algoma's girls sports teams have carried the torch in recent years, but in 1983 its was the boys' baseball team that gave the school its state championship.


The Wolves beat Waunakee and then Big Foot to claim its first and only state championship not just for baseball but for boys in general. A little luck went a long way to help the Wolves get into the championship game when they battled Waunakee. Pitchers and defense got themselves out of jams, forcing Waunakee to leave 13 people on base. The Wolves were also able to take advantage of three errors by Waunakee's Tim Price, which is in WIAA record books for second-most errors by one player in a game. Algoma's John Jones is also in the record books, recording two of his three sacrifices in the tournament against Waunakee to help the Wolves face Big Foot in the championship game. 


The Wolves won their title game against Big Foot 9-3 thanks in part to their work on the base paths. They hit two triples and stole six bases in the game that clinched the title for Gerald Guth's team in Division B. 



Algoma prepares for second eight-man football season

Things could not have gone better for the Algoma Wolves in their first season of eight-man football.


The Wolves steamrolled teams with a strong running game all season long with their lone blemish coming against the eventual state champion Newman Catholic. Unless the WIAA makes some changes, it is still unlikely Algoma would make the playoffs not because of a lack of talent, but because of its higher enrollment.

Algoma boys bounced in first round of WIAA Tournament

The Algoma High School boys’ basketball team ended their campaign with a loss at Cedar Grove-Belgium Tuesday night in the opening round of the postseason tournament. The Wolves fell, 86-47, and had only one scorer reach double figures. Carter Zimmerman’s 13 points were not enough to offset the scoring depth of Cedar Grove-Belgium.


Algoma wraps up their season at 2-21 overall. They failed to win a contest in conference play.

Stockbridge trips up Algoma boys in nonconference play

The Algoma High School boys’ basketball team lost a nonconference matchup Thursday night, falling to Stockbridge at home, 77-53. Guard Trevor Nell led the Wolves with 16 points, and Carter Zimmerman chipped in 13. 

Algoma’s regular season ends Friday when they travel to Sevastopol. Algoma lost to the Pioneers at home on January 7th, 87-59. 


Algoma girls defeated in first-round matchup

The Algoma High School girls’ basketball team traveled to Kohler for a first-round contest Tuesday night, losing a close matchup, 41-36. Senior guard Chloe Spitzer has been at the forefront of Algoma’s improving offensive play the past three weeks, but she was held in check by the Bombers. Spitzer finished with only four points, and Algoma had only four players tally a score. Luckily for the Wolves, Sydney Zimmerman had a game-high 21 points. 

Kohler advances in the Division Four tournament to take on second-seeded Mishicot.


Algoma boys lose road nonconference game

The Algoma High School boys’ basketball team fell at Reedsville Monday night, 75-61. The contest was scheduled for December originally but had to be made up due to poor weather. Algoma still has one game left outside of Packerland play against Stockbridge on the 27th. The Wolves are 2-3 nonconference and winless in the conference for the 2019-2020 campaign.

Algoma’s next game is Tuesday at Sevastopol. The Pioneers are 1-11 in the Packerland, with their only victory being against Algoma earlier in the season. That game took place on January 7th and was not particularly close. It is Algoma’s best chance of winning a conference game this year as they wrap up with Southern Door and Sturgeon Bay, who are a combined 21-4 in league play.


Algoma girls throttle Sturgeon Bay

The Algoma High School girls’ basketball team continues to round into form at just the right time. They picked up another win Monday night, this time against Sturgeon Bay. Chloe Spitzer led Algoma with 18 points, most in the first half of an eventual 58-39 victory. Sturgeon Bay did not have a player reach double figures.

Algoma has evened their overall record at 11-11 and their conference record (8-8). The Wolves have finished their Packerland schedule and are a half game back of NEW Lutheran and Southern Door. Algoma still has a chance to finish in the top half of the conference standings, depending on results later this week. The Wolves open the postseason against Kohler in one week.


Algoma boys make up Reedsville game

It's been well over a month since it was originally scheduled, but Algoma will finally play Reedsville in Monday's only boys' basketball contest.


The Wolves hope to win their third game of the season with their only victories coming from the non-conference slate. Carter Zimmerman has been a focal point of the offense, leading the team in scoring, rebounding, and assists (16.1 ppg, 8.5 rpg, 2.4 apg) this season. The Wolves lost their last game out, a 70-55 decision to Peshtigo. Reedsville is coming off a 20-point loss to St. Mary Catholic and are led by Brennen Dvoracheck. Similar to Zimmerman, Dvoracheck also leads his team in all offensive categories.


Tip is set for 7:15 p.m.

Algoma girls continue hot stretch

The Algoma High School girls’ basketball team beat another team ahead of them in the Packerland standings Friday night, defeating Southern Door, 54-46. The Wolves have struggled offensively in recent weeks even as their fortunes have improved on the court. They had to turn that around after trailing 26-18 at the half. Algoma exploded for 36 in the second frame.

Senior guard Chloe Spitzer led the way with 20 points. Nicole Norton had a team-high 15 for Southern Door. Algoma has now won four straight conference games and is only a half-game back of fifth place. Southern Door is fourth in the Packerland, a game back of Gibraltar and Peshtigo.

Algoma’s next game is Monday when they host Sturgeon Bay. An Algoma win gets them back to .500 after a terribly slow start to the season. Southern Door plays at Gibraltar Monday.


Algoma boys can't take bite out of Peshtigo

The Algoma High School boys’ basketball team dropped a home contest Thursday night to Peshtigo, 70-55. Cade Tackmier netted 28 points with Landon Lemke notching 19 in support for the Bulldogs. Peshtigo focused on shutting down Carter Zimmerman, holding him to only eight points on the night. That opened up opportunities elsewhere on the floor with nine Wolves contributing to the scorecard. It was not enough to overcome Peshtigo’s one-two punch though.

Algoma’s next game is Monday at Reedsville which is a makeup game from earlier in the season.


Algoma girls find offense against Sevastopol

The Algoma High School girls’ basketball team has been making a late-season run the past week but it has consisted of hard-fought defensive victories. The offense finally found a rhythm Tuesday night against Sevastopol. Characteristically for the Wolves, their offense was generated off of defense early on. Algoma allowed the Pioneers just six points in the first half and was able to transition into a balanced scoring attack. 

Three players hit double figures including Chloe Spitzer (13), Emersyn Wallace (11), and Halle Panger (10). Wallace continues to transition to being a major cog in the Wolves offense. Algoma meets Southern Door on Friday.


Algoma girls see win streak snapped

The Algoma High School girls’ basketball team had their three-game win streak snapped Monday at Bonduel, 52-33. The Wolves struggled again offensively on the road and this time they could not keep their opponent down. Algoma managed only nine points in the second half as the Bears tightened the screws to pull away. Algoma had seven players score and no one netted more than seven points. 

Algoma has just three games left and all of them are conference matchups. They get Sevastopol on the second half of a back-to-back Tuesday.


Algoma girls spring upset

The Algoma High School girls' basketball team shocked Peshtigo on the road Saturday afternoon, winning 35-31 in overtime. Algoma improves to 8-10 overall and is stealthily climbing the Packerland Conference standings. Peshtigo came into the game 9-2 in league play, good for second place, so this was a surprise.


As you can imagine in a game where the score was 28 apiece at the end of regulation, individual stat lines weren't the prettiest. Algoma had one scorer in double figures. Senior guard Emersyn Wallace netted 13 points off of free throws and four buckets.


Algoma's next game is a non-conference road matchup against Bonduel (16-3 overall). The Bears had a 13-game winning streak snapped Saturday by Crivitz so they may be ornery.



Algoma boys bedeviled by Oconto

The Algoma High School boys’ basketball team could not find an answer for Oconto’s Josh Woller Friday night, falling to the Blue Devils 74-54. Woller netted a game-high 26 points and was supported by seven other Oconto scorers. That more than offset the 18 from Algoma’s Carter Zimmerman and Trevor Nell’s 13 points. 


Algoma’s next game is Thursday when they play host to the Peshtigo Bulldogs.

Algoma girls notch road nonconference win

The Algoma High School girls’ basketball team knocked off Gresham Community School on the road Thursday night, winning 51-31. The Wolves had stellar defense for the entire game, but particularly in the second half when Gresham was limited to 13 total points. Entering the contest Algoma was 6-10 overall while Gresham was 9-7. Gresham plays in the Central Wisconsin – North Division.

Algoma returns to Packerland play Saturday afternoon at Peshtigo. The Bulldogs currently occupy second place in the conference.


Algoma girls sweep Oconto season series

The Algoma High School girls’ basketball team has four wins in the Packerland Conference with two of them now being against Oconto. The Wolves topped the Blue Devils, 47-39, Tuesday night. Algoma sprinted out to a 16-4 lead and kept their advantage until the final whistle. Chloe Spitzer had 16 with Hanna Weise picking up a double-double in the form of 15 points and 11 rebounds.

Algoma returns to the court on Thursday with a winnable nonconference game against Gresham Community High School. 


Algoma girls let road game slip away

At halftime on Friday night, the Algoma High School girls basketball team led by 10 but NEW Lutheran flipped the script in the second stanza to pull out a close game, 42-39. Algoma has lost three in a row and Friday’s defeat was almost solely due to the performance of Blazer role player Josie Nelson. She had a game-high 19 points for NEW Lutheran. Chloe Spitzer led Algoma with 14.

Algoma hosts Oconto on Tuesday night. Both teams are in the bottom half of the conference standings.


Algoma boys can't douse Blazer offense

The Algoma High School boys basketball team kept it close Thursday night but could not make a late rally against NEW Lutheran. The Wolves dropped a Packerland Conference matchup to the Blazers, 80-74. Thursday’s contest comes after allowing 100 points to Kewaunee on Tuesday. 

Carter Zimmerman was again the leading scorer for Algoma with 22 points. Marshal Bukowski followed up a sterling performance against Sturgeon Bay with another good one for NEW Lutheran. Bukowski had 23. 

Algoma’s next game is in one week at Oconto as the Wolves will try for their first league win of the season.


Second half sparks Algoma's win

Algoma used a big second half to earn its second win of the season Monday night.


Tied at 21 at the break, the Wolves outscored NEWCHAA 32-20 in the second half to earn the 53-41 victory in Algoma. Owen Robertson led the Wolves with 16 points while Trevor Nell chipped in another 11 points, Robertson did his damage from behind the arc, drilling four three-pointers in the win. The Wolves hosted Gibraltar in their next game on Friday night at 7:30 p.m.

Algoma boys basketball face NEWCHAA

The Northeast Wisconsin Christian Homeschoolers Athletic Association boys' basketball team continues their tour of Packerland Conference schools with a game at Algoma Monday night. 


The Wolves come into the game a week removed from their first win of the season, a 47-43 road decision over Gresham last Tuesday. NEWCHAA hosted Sevastopol over the weekend after losing to them earlier this month 100-69. Carter Zimmerman continues to be a bright spot on the team, leading the Wolves in points, rebounds and assists. (15.9/7.8/2.8).


Monday's game begins at 7:30 p.m.

Algoma boys win first game of the season

The Algoma High School boys basketball team has a tally in the win column for the first time in the 2019-2020 season. The Wolves defeated Gresham Community School, 47-43, on Tuesday night. Gresham entered the game with three wins on the year out of the Central Wisconsin Conference. Algoma returns to the court on Friday against a hot Sturgeon Bay squad, the first of three consecutive home games for the Wolves as they try to build momentum and turn around a 0-9 start.

Algoma girls scrape by Sturgeon Bay

The Algoma High School girls basketball team won a hard-fought, defensive battle at Sturgeon Bay Tuesday night, 36-31. Senior guard Chloe Spitzer led the team with 14 points, the only Algoma player in double figures. Algoma improves to 5-7 overall and 3-5 in the Packerland Conference. For Sturgeon Bay, Sarah Bridenhagen led her team with 14 points and was the only scorer in double figures. Sturgeon Bay is also 5-7 overall but they have played one fewer conference game and sit at 3-4 in the Packerland.

Algoma claws back against Sevastopol

Down by five at the break, the Algoma Wolves used a 31-17 run in the second half to beat Sevastopol 46-37.


The Wolves were paced in scoring by Halle Panger with 11 points and Hanna Wiese with 10 points. They also hit two more three-point shots than the Pioneers and took 12 more free throw attempts, going 14-28 from the line. Zoe Kuehn led the Pioneers in scoring with 14 points. 

Algoma boys can't collar Peshtigo

The Algoma High School boys basketball team is still looking for its first win of the season after falling at Peshtigo, 57-41, on Friday night. The Wolves had the game’s leading scorer overall in Carter Zimmerman. His 21 points were not enough to offset the balanced attack of the Bulldogs. Luke McMahon dropped in 17 with Seth Davis chipping in 13 and Tanner Marquardt contributed eight points. Algoma’s next game is against Sevastopol. Looking at their schedule, if the Wolves fail to pick up the win against the Pioneers they may be searching for a while. Games against Southern Door and Sturgeon Bay make the middle of January a tough stretch on the calendar.
