L-C Spartan boys basketball game postponed

The regularly scheduled Luxemburg-Casco Spartans boys basketball home game for Thursday night against Marinette has been cancelled due to the weather.  No make up date has been scheduled at this time.  The Spartans next game is set for next Tuesday when they host Clintonville.

Sevastopol boys dropped by Peshtigo

In just the second game of the season for the Sevastopol High School boys basketball team, the offense still failed to click Tuesday night against Peshtigo. Sevastopol fell to 0-2, losing 61-50 to the Bulldogs. Last year’s squad saw a similarly slow start with the offense coming to life after Christmas. Before the holiday in 2018, Sevastopol scored under 40 points in three of their first six games. That happened once in their last 14. 

If this year’s team stays true to form, they should be rounding into shape come the Lena Invitational. Before then, the Pioneers play NEW Christian Home School Thursday and are at Southern Door next week.


Kewaunee boys win rivalry game

The Kewaunee High School boys basketball team rose to the challenge of a rivalry game on the road Tuesday night. The Storm rode the hot hand of Ryan Carmichael. He dropped 30 points on the Algoma Wolves in a 78-32 victory. Yes, Carmichael almost outscored Algoma by himself. He almost outscored the rest of his teammates too. Tanor Bortolini was the Storm’s second-highest scorer at 11.

Kewaunee is 2-1 and undefeated in the Packerland. Their next game is Friday hosting Gibraltar. Algoma is still looking for the first win of the season. They match up with NEW Lutheran on Friday in Green Bay.


Southern Door boys win Tuesday night

The Southern Door High School boys basketball team soared Tuesday night against previously undefeated Oconto. The Eagles gave the Blue Devils their first loss of the season, 77-64. Ryan Claflin had 27 points, Nick Baudhuin netted 15 and Alex Daoust chipped in 14. Southern Door improved to 2-1 on the season while remaining unbeaten in Packerland Conference play. So far, Southern Door is winning their conference games by an average of 20 points. 

The Eagles are back on the court Friday when they travel to Peshtigo.  The Bulldogs are 1-1 without a conference game so far in 2019-20. They defeated Marinette by 27 before losing by two in a tight road game against Northland Pines. Peshtigo is averaging 76 points per game while Southern Door has yet to give up 70 points in a contest so far.


Luxemburg-Casco girls get first win

The Luxemburg-Casco High School girls basketball team is replacing a ton from last year’s playoff squad and it has shown early this season. After struggling against Wrightstown and Notre Dame where the Spartans yielded 80 points, the defense is beginning to lock opponents down. L-C gave up only 35 points to the Waupaca Comets last night while scoring 44 of their own in a win.


L-C’s next game is against Fox Valley Lutheran. The Foxes are winless in the NEC so far this season which gives the Spartans a chance to start their first winning streak this campaign.

Sturgeon Bay girls lose to Green Bay West

The Sturgeon Bay High School girls basketball team lost to Green Bay West on the road in a close, low-scoring game. The Clippers are now 2-4 overall after falling 41-37 on Tuesday night. Sturgeon Bay has shown impressive team defense this season. The Clippers have held four teams to under 50 points. In those games, the Clippers are 2-2. When Sturgeon Bay allows over 50, they have yet to be victorious

L-C drops game against Notre Dame

Luxemburg-Casco lost the only local game yesterday, losing to Green Bay Notre Dame at home Monday night 79-64.


The Spartans kept it close early, heading into the break down 34-32. The Tritons came out firing in the second half, outscoring the Spartans 45-32 to capture the victory. The Spartans next play on Thursday night at home against Marinette.

Southern Door wrestling wins pair at Stratford

The Southern Door Wrestling 2019-2020 season has begun.  This years' teams consists of Freshman Alec Guilette, Jonas Jandrin, Cody Nellis, Jacob Zettle, Christian Counard, Reese Vanryzin and Ethan Rouer.  Sophomores Austin Farley, Dylan Wessel, Thomas Grosbeier, Shaun Tooley, Josh Ditello, Riley Phillips and Brodie Overbeck.  Juniors Austin Falish, Griffin Slezewski, Kyle Conard, Katelyn LeCloux, Brad Skippon, Brady Tooley, Drew DeFere and Grant Englebert.  Our only returning senior is Blake Jensen, who wrestled part of last season, and is joined by first year senior Ben Slezewski and exchange student Corentin Valette.

We are a young team again this year but with some valuable experience.  We have two returning state place winners with Grant Englebert (5th last year) and Griffin Slezewski 6th in 2018.  We also have two returning sectional qualifiers in Austin Falish and Kyle Conard.  Because we have been young the past couple years our Juniors and Sophomores have a lot of varsity time.  I expect the freshman are also going to make an impact this season.

Saturday we wrestled at the Schoenherr Duals in Stratford.  For several wrestlers this was their first high school competition and for some the first time ever wrestling.  No better way to let you know just how you stand than by wrestling a perennial power like Stratford (State runner up last year).  Like most seasons our new comers, and the team as a whole, will take some losses early in the season as we gain experience.  That said, I feel all of our returning wrestlers showed improvement from last season which was good to see.  We ended the day 2-3 as a team.  Not bad considering we were missing 10 wrestlers for various reasons.  We also moved wrestlers in an out of the line up to get as many close matches as possible.  As coaches we were able to see some of the techniques we've been working on pay off and some areas we need to re-emphasize.  We were also able to see the heart and determination this group has.

SD dual scores were as follows:
SD 36 Watoma Wild Rose 24
SD 28 Barron 51
SD 42 Crandon 30
SD 6 Stratford 58
SD 36 Phillips 39

Top individual finishers were Kyle Conard and Brodie Overbeck both placing second.

Team results were as follows:
Stratford 5-0
Phillips 4-1
Barron 3-2
SD 2-3
Wautoma Wild Rose 1-4
Crandon 0-5

Next Saturday the Varsity heads to Bayport for the "Battle on the Bay" and JV head to Luxemburg.  Bayport is another measuring stick as it is one of the toughest tournaments in the state.  Luxemburg is a tough JV tournament that can provide the mat time needed to develop skills.  Already looking forward to both tournaments.
