Gibraltar High School

Best year in Gibraltar girls track and field history

The Gibraltar girls track and field team had some fine performers during the 2019 season including Abbey Fitzgerald and Abby Sitte.

Gibraltar softball season over after loss to Sevastopol

Gibraltar's softball season is over after falling in the opening round of the regional playoffs to Sevastopol on Thursday. The Vikings were unable to defend their home field and lost 11-1 to the Pioneers.

Playoffs about to begin with conference foe for Gibraltar

The regular season is over for Gibraltar after a 10-3 loss at Sturgeon Bay on Tuesday. It's now playoff season and the Vikings will open the postseason with a familiar foe. They'll host Sevastopol on Thursday for a 4:30 PM first pitch. The two teams split their two matchups this season each winning on the other's home field.




Gibraltar baseball can't hold big lead

After the top of the third inning Gibraltar had an 8-0 lead over Sturgeon Bay. That lead wasn't big enough as the Clippers scored six runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to beat the Vikings 9-8. Abram Abeyta got the walk-off hit to complete the comeback. 

 

Sam Lindenburg was great at the plate for Gibraltar in the game going 3-4.

 

The Vikings will host non-conference opponent Valders on Thursday at 4:30 PM.

Henry sweeps distance events, Sitte and Fitzgerald dominate Packerland Track Championships

With seven individual event titles, if only Gibraltar had complete teams to see where they would have ended up in the final Packerland Conference Track Championships standings.

 

Evan Henry continued his distance dominance in the conference, sweeping the titles in the 1600 meter (4:44) and 3200 meter (10:31) events. He also took third in the 800.

 

Whether you spell with an -ey or an -i, those named Abby had an amazing day for the Vikings. Abbigael Sitte won titles for the 100 and 200 meter dashes, Abbey Fitzgerald won the long and triple jump events, and the two combined to bring home a title in the 4 x 100 meter relay.

Gibraltar baseball earns split against Southern Door

Gibraltar baseball rebounded from a game one 5-2 defeat to claim the second contest by a 10-0 score over the Southern Door Eagles.

 

In game one, Alex Laughlin and Trevor Reinhardt each doubled while Spencer Krause and Luke Steebs collected the RBI for the Vikings, but ultimately could not recover from a tough three-run third inning. Reinhardt took the loss for the Vikings, giving up all five runs on seven hits in four innings of work.

 

In game two, Steebs didn't need a six run outburst in the second inning, but it clearly helped him keep a mental edge in a five inning, one hit shut out of the Eagles. Brandon Stillman and Andras Szakala collected three RBI a piece while Reinhardt drove in a pair. Dominic Krauel and Alex Laughlin also had RBI as well. The Vikings had four extra base hits and four stolen bases in the win.

Gibraltar softball schedule getting very tough

The Gibraltar softball team will certainly not have an easy go with it the rest of the season. In their final five games, all are conference games and each team is at or above the .500 mark in the Packerland. They start that schedule off with a doubleheader at Southern Door on Monday with game one scheduled for 4 PM. The Vikings will follow that up the next day at Algoma.

 

After that grueling schedule is over, Gibraltar will have a chance to win some games in the playoffs which the Vikings last did in 2017. In the first round of regionals, they defeated Stockbridge/Hilbert 15-5 to advance. 

 

Stockbridge/Hilbert was the correct answer to Saturday's trivia question. Congratulations to Paul DeWitt for answering the question correctly! Paul will win a $25 certificate to the Sister Bay Mobil.

Head baseball coach Jay Kita is in his 17th season and this is the 14th year he has run the Youth Baseball Camp. Kita says it has grown tremendously since the very first one.

 

 

Kita also talked about what he has liked about his team so far this season and the players that have really stood out.

Gibraltar football has its coaches

Members of Gibraltar's football team should be familiar with its new head coach and assistant coach.

 

Back in January, the Gibraltar School Board named Mike Peck as its new head football coach. The Gibraltar Elementary School physical education team helped coach the defense last year under former head coach Jim Laughlin, who decided to not pursue the vacancy after Scott Biemeret left the position right before the 2018 season. Rejoining Peck on the staff will be Tom Sawyer, who will likely continue his operation of the offense as the assistant coach after being formally approved by the district board in March.

 

The Vikings went 7-4 last season, making it to the first round of the WIAA eight-man football playoffs.

Gibraltar's offense couldn't be stopped against Sevastopol

Gibraltar softball just kept on scoring in a thrilling game against Sevastopol on Tuesday. The Vikings went on the road to win 12-10 over the Pioneers. Neither pitching staff could keep the other off base much but Gibraltar was able to do it a little more.

 

The Vikings will host Algoma on Friday with the first pitch scheduled for 5 PM.

Gibraltar baseball knocks off Sevastopol

Gibraltar was able to come back against Sevastopol after trailing early in the ballgame. Trevor Reinhardt allowed 3 runs in the first inning but only allowed one more the rest of the way to help lead the Vikings to a 7-4 victory. Reinhardt also contributed at the plate going 2-4 with a double and 2 RBIs. Sam Lindenburg scored twice in the ballgame.

 

Gibraltar will host the Algoma Wolves on Friday evening with the first pitch scheduled for 5 PM.

Gibraltar falls at home to NEW

Gibraltar's pitching and defense were stellar on Saturday at home against Green Bay NEW Lutheran. The problem was they couldn't get anything going offensively. The final score was 2-0.

 

Back in 2010, Gibraltar's baseball team did everything right going undefeated in the Packerland Conference. The top hitter that season was Tom Sawyer who was the answer to Saturday's trivia question. Congratulations to Sally Pfeifer for answering the question correctly! She will win a $25 certificate to the Sister Bay Mobil.
