Reaching the 20 foot barrier seven times in 2019, he leapt 21' 5" at state to capture a medal. Sargent missed out on state in the 100M dash, but improved from his 2018 sectional time.

Algoma Baseball Senior Day: Gavin Miller

It has been our pleasure to have Gavin out for baseball.  He sets a good example of what hard work can do, especially in his training for football.  He gained a lot of strength by hitting the weights along with increased speed and agility by spending numerous hours in the Wellness Center.  It is great to have an athlete so dedicated to football come out and give baseball a try.  He has been fun to have on the team and we are hopeful Gavin is a trailblazer for other hard working athletes to take on new challenges.


Sevastopol Track Senior Day: Kelton Couperus

Kelton Couperus' career as a Sevastopol track athlete might be as short as his time at the school itself.

 

Coperus started the year at Mellen High School, located near the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest in northern Wisconsin. According to Athletic.net, he had a personal record of 20:28 in the 5K event at the Indianhead Conference Copperud Open in Solon Springs. Sevastopol Track Coach Dennis Ploor said in the school's spring sports video that Coperus was an inspiration.

 

After this year, Coperus will be attending Brigham Young University and studying Biophysics.

 

 


Luxemburg-Casco Baseball Senior Day: Bryce Hanmann

nger playing days. Bryce also credits his uncle as well for teaching and coaching alongside his dad and giving him pointers and tips as he was coming up. Bryce has lots of fond memories from his playing days with friends, family, and being coached by his father and Uncle. He cites that once as a youngster they lost a game to a talented Green Bay Sluggers, and the opportunity presented itself to play them the following day. Bryce was not a fan of the decision, and in fact was put on the mound to pitch in addition to his lack of interest to play this team again. He ended pitching a one hit, three inning gem, but credits the loss to fellow Senior Jake Cravillion for giving up a Grand Slam to a future Clemson commit. His fondest moment of this was the opposing coach after the game driving by just pointing at him and smiling as he drove away. The recognition may have been little and unseen to others, but affirmation from an opposing coach has stuck with Bryce to this day. This can remind us that simple acts of good can go a long way and mean a lot more than we know. So fast forward to 2020 to a young man with a big heart and a bright future. Bryce is heading to UW-Madison in the coming year to enroll in the Kinesiology program where he hopes one day to find himself on the training staff of a professional sports team. Helping others and being around sports will be a great fit for Bryce. In his leisure he also enjoys fishing, boating, and napping. The napping probably ensues after he downs a plate of his favorite ribs. Outside of baseball, Bryce is a decorated student have been named at one time the class president. Bryce thanks his dad for the past entirety of his life for being his role model. From coaching, teaching, to just supporting him. Bryce told us that when he looks down the road 30 years, he wants his life to mirror that of his father’s and everything his father has accomplished. Bryce, we’re going to miss the positive spirit, the joyful laugh, and the big heart you shared with us over these past years. Good Luck to you moving forward 21! Everyone, join me in congratulating Bryce Hanmann!

Algoma Baseball Senior Day: Justin Dragosh

As a junior, Justin jumped head first into the Varsity Baseball program.  As expected, a late start did not phase Justin.  He is one of those players you wish you had one more year to work with.  Justin made so much progress and had a lot of momentum, energy, and excitement coming into his senior season.  He worked extremely hard and became one of our most coachable athletes.  Justin possess the perfect combination for an AHS baseball player; reliable, dependable, punctual, and team oriented.  The coaching staff is saddened for this loss of opportunity, but grateful for his contributions.  We expect big things for Justin in his future.


Luxemburg-Casco Soccer Senior Day: Natalie Haen

Our final senior to honor is Natalie Haen. Natalie is a hardworking and motivated player. She is selfless and always puts the team first. Her sophomore year the team was in need of a goalkeeper; Natalie stepped up into the role even though she had no prior experience. This position can be very difficult to play but Natalie was fearless in that position and put in a lot of work to continuously improve. Her strong work ethic led her to being voted the hardest worker on the team the past two seasons and being selected as honorable mention all-conference. Her selflessness and leadership will be missed.


Sevastopol Track Senior Day: Madison Duginski

Madison Duginksi's track career was only six days old when COVID-19 canceled the rest of the season, but she can still look back at the cross country season with high regard.

 

According to Athletic.net, Duginski tried her hand at distance running last fall, running a 34:24 in her first 5K race. She improved the whole season, cutting off two minutes on her time her next two meets before running sub-30 minute races the rest of the year. Her personal record was at the Packerland Conference meet with a time of 28:13. That was a six-minute personal record on Gibraltar's home course. Head coach Dennis Ploor said in the school spring sports video that it was fun six days with Duginski.

 

After this year, Duginski will be joining the United States Navy and doing Nuclear Mechanics.

 

 


Algoma Baseball Senior Day: Bryce Duerst

Bryce came into spring with high excitement and expectations.   He planned open gyms, utilized the weight room, and worked hard in the off-season to prepare for his final season.    Bryce is the type of leader that I hope others aspire to be like.   His personality, enthusiasm, work ethic, and passion was second to none.   Bryce has certain intangibles that cannot be replaced.   

During the off-season, after working double shifts on Charter boats, Bryce would always find time to volunteer helping the Youth program on weekends as well as umpire little league games on weeknights. 

 

There is no question; Bryce will be a future leader someday.  The coaching staff could not be more proud to call Bryce our Team Captain.


Luxemburg-Casco Soccer Senior Day: Ally Zimmerman

Today we are honoring senior Ally Zimmerman. Ally is a hard working player that always gives 100% when she’s out on the field. Throughout her high school career she improved and became more aggressive and confident throughout each season. She is the definition of a true team player and was always supporting her teammates whether she was on the field or sidelines. She knows the meaning of being a part of a team and creating a family like atmosphere. She has stepped up as a leader and was always welcoming to the younger players. Her kindheartedness and hard work will be missed.


Sevastopol Golf Senior Day: Tyler Kiehnau

The golfer that caused Sevastopol head coach Dan Sanborn to take over the reins in 2020 will be the one he will get to coach the least.

 

One year removed from being the team's and the area's only All-Packerland Conference honoree, Tyler Kiehnau was the Pioneer's lone senior. He was hoping to build on last year's success to clinch a berth to the state golf tournament in Madison. He scored an 86 in last year's Crivitz sectional, which was good for ninth place. Sanborn hopes golf is something he is able to take with him through life.

 

After graduation, Kiehnau is attending St. Norbert College to study marketing.

DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com will highlight the seniors from all of the schools as a part of its Senior Night Series brought you by Culver's, Door County Medical Center, and Nicolet National Bank.

 

 


Sevastopol salutes spring sports athletes

The coaches at Sevastopol High School took to video to thank their athletes and give special shout-outs to their seniors.

 

In a video posted Friday morning and kicked off by athletic director Jennifer Wiesner, golf coach Dan Sanborn, baseball coach Kent Berkley, track coach Dennis Ploor, softball coach Brooke Bittorf,  and soccer coach Chad Andreae each gave special messages to their teams that had their season cut short or not even start in some cases due to COVID-19.

 

We will highlight the seniors with special Senior Day posts in the near future on DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com.

 

 


Luxemburg-Casco Soccer Senior Day: Madi VandenBush

Today we are honoring Madilyn VandenBush, the first of our three seniors. During her soccer career, Madi has overcome a lot of obstacles but has maintained a positive attitude. Right before her junior season she tore her ACL. However, she did not let this stop her from being a part of a sport she loves. Madi put in a lot of hard work to rehab and get ready to play again. The coaches were very impressed with Madi’s work ethic this off-season and the positive role model she became for the other players. Unfortunately, Madi tore her ACL again right before her senior season of soccer was supposed to start. Once again she remained positive and immediately said she still wanted to be a part of the team as a manager this year. Sitting on the bench watching teammates play can be difficult but I think this shows a lot about Madi’s character that she was willing to still be there for her teammates. Madilyn's positive personality will be greatly missed next year.
