Kewaunee girls basketball opens season with win

Practices began last Monday for winter sports with a scrimmage this past Saturday and the first regular season game Tuesday night for Kewaunee High School's girls basketball team. That condensed schedule was not an issue for the Storm. They were the only area team in action, picking up a victory against Denmark on the road. The Storm won, 60-46.


Denmark was led by Abby Maricque who scored 21 points on 9-15 shooting. Maricque's performance helped the Denmark team overall to shoot 47 percent from the field. That made this year's game a lot closer than the opener to the 2018-19 season which saw Kewaunee dispatch the Vikings easily, 73-39. 


Kewaunee's next game is Monday night at home against Menasha.

Luxemburg-Casco captures state volleyball title on 96.7 WBDK

Luxemburg-Casco fought off a furious rally by McFarland in the third set to capture its first-ever state volleyball title at the Resch Center Saturday afternoon.

 

Finding themselves down early in the first set 8-2, Luxemburg-Casco was able to regroup and took control late to win 25-21, capturing seven of the final 10 points.

 

Luxemburg-Casco made McFarland dig out of 13-6  hole, but never let them get within striking distance in the second game, winning 25-17.

 

Championships are not meant to be easy and Luxemburg-Casco found that out in the third game. McFarland got out to a 13-7 lead before head coach Jeff Frey called his first time-out to stem the tide. It worked as Luxemburg-Casco captured five of the next seven points before McFarland showed a burst of its own, forcing Frey to call another timeout. Luxemburg-Casco would score 11 of the final 15 points to clinch the title.

 

Hannah Derenne showed nice touch in many of her team-leading 14 kills while Grace Holschuh added another 11. Bekah Day registered 39 assists in her final match for Luxemburg-Casco while Alli Routhieaux led the team in digs with 13. A relatively even game statisically between the two teams, Luxemburg-Casco outpaced top-seeded McFarland in kills 45-27.

Kings of the pitch

The Sturgeon Bay High School boys soccer team won the Division 4 State Championship Saturday afternoon at the Kohler Engines Stadium located within the Uihlein Soccer Park in Milwaukee. The Clippers scored in the second overtime period to defeat The Prairie School, 2-1. Overtime in soccer is not sudden death so Sturgeon Bay had to hold on for another two minutes after the go-ahead goal to secure their second State Title in school history. 


The Prairie School took the lead in the 28th minute thanks to a goal from Max Yde, his 19th of the season. Nicholas Hawkins got the assist thanks to a superb near-side cross that Yde was able to head in past Clipper goalie Joe Wind.


Sturgeon Bay's Eli Dietzel answered in the 41st minute. Dietzel was kept in check by the Hawks for the most part. He had just one shot the entire game but he made it count to get his 32nd tally of the season. Dietzel's goal came off of a corner kick situation. 


Late in the second half Nicholas Hawkins was shown the gate after a red card. The Hawks were put in a tough situation playing one man down into overtime. Sturgeon Bay bided their time until Carson Dvorak finally put one home in the 108th minute to notch the Clippers the golden ball.


Spartans volleyball sweeps Wisconsin Lutheran, plays McFarland for title Saturday

The Luxemburg-Casco Spartans girls volleyball team came out fast and beat the Wisconsin Lutheran Vikings 3 sets to none on Friday afternoon in a Division 2 State Semi-Final at the Resch Center in Green Bay.  The Spartans jumped out to a 9-1 lead in the first set and cruised to a 25-15 win.  Set two saw the Spartans control most of the game and led from start to finish to win 25-22.  The final set was a see-saw affair which saw the Vikings take a three point lead only to have the Spartans come back and prevail 25-23.  The Spartans will now take on the McFarland Spartans Saturday at 2:30 pm in the state championship match.  Tyler Thrune and Tim Kowols will have the call on 96.7 FM WBDK with the pregame starting at 2 pm.  The broadcast will also be streamed on DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com.

Luxemburg-Casco set for huge following Friday

The High School office has been selling tickets since Tuesday with hours extended until 5 PM yesterday due to demand. At some points, they had run out of supply and were forced to request more. As of 24 hours ago, over 700 tickets had been purchased. 


The matchup is at the Resch Center in Green Bay, a multi-purpose arena with seating of approximately 9,900.

'It's All About the Athletes' for Algoma High School's Yaeger

For Algoma High School Athletic Trainer Kim Yaeger, there’s no such thing as a typical day – and that’s the way she likes it. 
For more than a decade now, Yaeger has made her work home (one of them, anyway) in the high school’s athletic training room. She’s there for everything from taping to addressing acute issues, coming up with practice plans and covering home athletic events. No two athletes and no two days are alike. 
“I never know what will walk into my athletic training room on a daily basis,” Yaeger said. “I love working with high school athletes because they are a very motivated group. And they’re a fun group to work with! You never know what they are going to do or say. It keeps me on my toes and I like to think it helps to keep me young.”
Yaeger initially considered physical therapy but ultimately discovered it wasn’t the right career path for her. She remained interested in the medical profession and she enjoyed watching sports, so athletic training seemed like a natural next step. 
She’s also a people person. Hands down, working with people is the best part of Yaeger’s job, she said.
“I get to work with a very diverse group of people,” she said. “Whether it’s working with the doctors, my coworkers, school administration or the athletes at school, everyone brings something different to my day. So definitely, my interaction with people is the best part.”
When she’s not at the high school, Yaeger coordinates pre-participation exams for athletes at various Bellin Health clinics. It keeps her plenty busy, but not so busy that she doesn’t find time to have fun traveling and, in the summer, watching her dad race stock cars. She’s also a music lover who attends as many concerts and live music events as she can, totaling about 50 each year.
Asked how it feels to make a difference in the lives of the students she works with, Yaeger pauses, then offers an unassuming answer.
“I guess it feels pretty good,” she says. “I don’t necessarily think in those terms – I’m just doing my job the best I can, whether that is helping an athlete with an injury or just listening to them on a good or bad day. It’s all about the athletes.” 

 


Luxemburg-Casco volleyball gets state pairing

The Luxemburg-Casco volleyball team knows its opponent when it opens the WIAA State Tournament at the Resch Center in Green Bay on Friday.

 

The WIAA announced Sunday the Division 2 state volleyball field, which places the Spartans playing against Wisconsin Lutheran in the semifinal round at 2 p.m. on Friday. The winner of that match would play the winner of McFarland and Bloomer at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.

 

This is the second time Luxemburg-Casco has advanced to the state tournament in three years, defeating Merill before falling to Lakeside Lutheran in 2017.

Gibraltar proud of season's accomplishments

Gibraltar head football coach Mike Peck is not quite ready to look ahead to 2020.

 

The Vikings saw their season end last Friday night almost the same way it did in 2018: a lopsided 61-25 loss to eight-man football powerhouse Newman Catholic. The loss does not take away what the team was able to accomplish in 2019, which included its first football conference championship in 45 years and the school's first playoff win. Peck says watch the film over again as he prepares for the team's annual football banquet with fond memories of being at least one game better than they were last year.

 

 

The team will graduate only four seniors from this year's team: Connor Duffy, Brandon Stillman, Paul Hartmann, and Dominic Krauel. 

 

 


Sturgeon Bay will play Northland Pines

The Sturgeon Bay soccer team now knows who they will play in the state tournament on Thursday. Northland Pines from Eagle River is the three-seed after the final four teams were reseeded on Sunday. The Clippers are the two-seed and those two teams will battle at 1:30 PM on Thursday in Milwaukee at Uihlein Soccer Park for a chance to play in the Division 4 State Championship Game on Saturday. Sturgeon Bay won a thrilling overtime game over Oostburg on Thursday while the Eagles of Northland Pines had a much easier time with Columbus Catholic winning 8-2. Whoever wins will take on the winner of 1-seed The Prairie School and 4-seed Lake Mills.

 

Sturgeon Bay v. Northland Pines will be broadcasted on 103.3 The Clipper and DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com with the pregame beginning at 1 PM.


Stenzel competes at state cross country

Sevastopol's Olivia Stenzel was the only local runner participating in the state cross country meet on Saturday at The Ridges Golf Course in Wisconsin Rapids. Stenzel put up a very good showing placing 53rd out of 149 runners in Division 3 with a time of 21:07.1. The star Sevastopol runner will be back running next year and will hope to make a return trip to state as Stenzel is just a junior.


Luxemburg-Casco volleyball headed to state

Luxemburg-Casco rallied after losing the first set to beat Xavier in the sectional final at Little Chute on Saturday night. The Spartans then took the next 3 sets and will play in the state semi-finals on Friday. Bekah Day had 47 assists and 9 digs. Grace Holschuh led the team in kills with 18 and blocks with 4. Hannah Derenne added 16 Kills and 16 digs and Kenzie Hanson Kenzie contributed Hanson-11 Kills and 14 digs. Alli Routhieaux had a nice match with 15 digs. Luxemburg-Casco Head Coach said, "Xavier did a great job of putting pressure on us early in game 1, but I thought we started to settle in late in game 1 and carried it into the next 3 games.  Proud of the way our girls didn’t panic and went back to playing the way we wanted.  We did a great job of spreading the ball around.  So proud of our girls and excited for them."

 

Luxemburg-Casco will now have to wait until Friday to play in the state semi-final game. The Spartans will take on Wisconsin Lutheran at the Resch Center in Green Bay with the match starting at 2 PM.

Sturgeon Bay wins sectional in overtime thriller on 103.3 The Clipper

Sturgeon Bay soccer passed their most difficult test of the playoffs so far by beating Oostburg for the sectional championship in Kohler on Saturday afternoon. The Clippers needed overtime to take it 2-1. Owen Stevenson scored both of Sturgeon Bay's goals including the game-winner with just 1:25 left in the second overtime period.

 

Sturgeon Bay controlled play for most of the first half. Stevenson got the Clippers on the board in the 14th minute after a corner kick from CJ Fairchild.

 

It was a different story in the second half. Oostburg showed why they were the number-1 seed in the region and were undefeated until this game. Marco Gonzalez Moreno scored not even two minutes into the second half to tie the game at 1. The Flying Dutchmen kept the pressure on Sturgeon Bay for much of the rest of the half. They hit the post once and had other good opportunities for goals that they just couldn't put past Clipper keeper Joe Wind. Sturgeon Bay also missed some opportunities in the second half.

 

In overtime, both teams squandered chances early and Ben DeNamur deflected a shot on the goalline to preserve the tie. Gonzalez Moreno hit the crossbar on another shot attempt. Spencer Hubbard's shot early in the first overtime period went just wide of the net for Sturgeon Bay. In the 109th minute, Eli Dietzel set up Stevenson for the goal past Oostburg keeper Braden Van Ginkel for the deciding goal.

 

Sturgeon Bay will advance to the state semi-final for the third year in a row and the 8th time in 10 years. The Clippers will play on Thursday in Milwaukee. They will play either at 11 AM or 1:30 PM depending on the seeding of the final four teams. The game will be broadcasted on 103.3 The Clipper and DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com with the pregame starting a half-hour before the game begins.

 

 


Kewaunee football continues success

The Kewaunee football program still continues to move in the right direction even after a loss to Chilton in the playoffs Friday night. They took home another conference championship and one more playoff win for the 2019 season. Last year the Storm went one round further after finishing the regular season undefeated. Kewaunee knocked off conference rival Southern Door in the Level 2 playoffs last year before falling to Stratford. Owen Kudick clinched the win against Southern Door by scoring the game-winning touchdown in the fourth quarter. The Storm eventually won 31-28.

 

Owen Kudick was the correct answer to Friday's trivia question. Congratulations to Pete Kline for answering the question correctly! Pete will win a $25 certificate to The Grove in Kewaunee.


Gibraltar can't catch Newman Catholic on 105.1 The Viking

Newman Catholic's firepower proved to be too much for Gibraltar as they fell 61-25 in the second round of the WIAA Eight-Man Playoffs Friday night on 105.1 The Viking. 

 

The Cardinals once again got off to a fast start, going up 21-0 in the first quarter thanks to two touchdown passes from Ben Bates and a rushing score by freshman Thomas Bates. Alex Laughlin would get the Vikings on the scoreboard in the second quarter from over 20 yards out to make it 21-6, but the freshman Bates would score three unanswered touchdowns to put the game even further out of reach. Laughlin would score again on the ground before Ben Bates capped off the final drive of the half with a nine-yard quarterback keeper. Laughlin would add two touchdowns in the third quarter including a 60-yard rushing score to open the second half, only to be matched by Newman Catholic each time.

 

Despite the final result, the Vikings still finished one game better than last year with an overall record of 8-3 while collecting its first-ever playoff win against Suring last week and its first conference championship in 45 years.


Kewaunee falls to Chilton 41-26 on WBDK

The Kewaunee Storm’s season came to end on a bitterly cold Friday evening as the Chilton Tigers pulled away late to come away with a 41-26 victory in Kewaunee. 

 

The Division 5 Level 2 playoff game started out very similar to last week for the Storm as they fell behind early 13-0.  Chilton’s star running back Gavin Lisowe scored on long runs of 80 and 97 yards as the Tigers took a 19-13 in the first half before the Storm scored on a Ryan Carmichael 1 yard run to recapture the lead 20-19 at the intermission.

 

The Storm suffered a setback when running back Owen Kudick left the game late in the second quarter with an apparent shoulder injury and did not return. 

 

The third quarter is when the turning point occurred.  Kewaunee took over after a fumble at the Tiger 15 yard line but was stopped on a fourth and one at the five.  Chilton then went on a long 95-yard drive to score on the final play of the third quarter to take a 27-20 lead into the fourth quarter. 

 

The Tigers kept the momentum going by scoring twice more to take a commanding 41-20 lead with just 5:34 left in the game.  Kewaunee managed to score on a 1-yard pass from Carmichael to Max Hanrahan but it was not enough at Chilton (9-2) will now advance to take on #1 seed Amherst next Friday in a level 3 playoff in Amherst.  Kewaunee (9-2) finishes a successful season having claimed the MNOLP Conference championship with a 5-0 record.  


Sturgeon Bay soccer plays for sectional championship on 103.3 The Clipper

Sturgeon Bay soccer is looking to make its third straight trip down to Milwaukee when they play Oostburg for a sectional championship on Saturday. The game features the top two teams in the region. Sturgeon Bay has been dominant in the playoffs so far outscoring Howards Grove, Omro and Lourdes/Valley Christian by a combined score of 22-2. The Clippers are coming off an 8-2 win at home over Lourdes/Valley Christian.

 

Oostburg has not lost a game this season and has one tie. The Flying Dutchmen beat Kohler in the sectional semi-final on Thursday 4-1. Oostburg had one close call in the playoffs. They needed overtime in the regional final to beat 9-seed Saint Lawrence Seminary 1-0. 

 

Whoever wins this game will earn a trip to Milwaukee for the state semi-final on Thursday. You can hear the broadcast on 103.3 The Clipper and DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com with the pregame show beginning at 12:30 PM.
