Gibraltar's Reinhardt shines in WFCA 8-Man Football All-Star game

Former Gibraltar quarterback Trevor Reinhardt had an impressive end to his high school football career in the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association All-Star Game Saturday in Oshkosh.

 

Reinhardt had a hand in all three WFCA South scores in a 21-6 win cut short due to weather. Reinhardt scampered for a one-yard score in the opening five minutes and threw a 48-yard touchdown pass to Port Edwards' Addison Gibbs a few minutes later. He would cap off his offensive production with another touchdown, ending the day completing 12 passes for just 205 yards while rushing for another seven.  Reinhardt's cousin and Gibraltar lineman Griffin also played in the game.

 

The three-game WFCA All Star Weekend raised over $370,000 for Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, including $15,015 by Door County athletes.

A look back at Gibraltar boys basketball playoff run

Now that the school year is over, it's time to look at some of the best moments from the past sports year. For Gibraltar, that means looking back at the magical run the boys basketball team made in the playoffs and a surprise regional championship. The Vikings were the fifth seed in the region and knocked off Lena, Florence and Phelps all by at least 29 points. A big key (and I mean big) for the team was the defense from big guys Evan Henry and Brady Ash who dominated the paint against a couple of prolific offenses in Florence and Phelps.

 

Those two big guys were the correct answer to Saturday's trivia question. Congratulations to Doris Moore for answering the question correctly! They will win a $25 certificate to the Sister Bay Mobil.

Bizarre events sink Vikings against Blue Jays

In a game filled with bizarre events, the Gibraltar Vikings came up just short of heading to the state tournament, falling 5-3 to Athens in the WIAA Division 4 Sectional Final in Crivitz.

 

The first break of the game went in favor after freshman third basemen Sam Lindenberg was able to temporarily force Seth Coker off the mound after a long but great at-bat. With Dayne Diethelm on the mound for the Blue Jays, Dominic Krauel fouled off a pitch that appeared to be caught by the first baseman Dakota Willhemssen, but the ball bounced off the fence with a second chance in Krauel in hand. He responded with run scoring triple and was later driven home by Alex Laughlin on his RBI double.

 

The Blue Jays, who had already made one two-run comeback earlier in the day in the sectional semifinal, scored on an errant throw by Luke Steebs and a drop third strike charged to catcher Andras Szakala. The Vikings would give up the lead on sacrifice squeeze bunt by Cobie Ellenbecker, but would get it back an inning later on another RBI hit by Laughlin. The Vikings would threaten to break the game wide open in the sixth inning, but came away empty handed after a couple miscues.

 

The Blue Jays would take the lead for good in the top of 7th after Szakala made a diving catch on a bunt, only to see his throw to third bounce off the base runner's helmet into left field. One batter later, the Blue Jays would score an insurance run on an RBI single.

 

Trevor Reinhardt followed up his perfect game with another gutsy performance in his final game as a Viking, going 6 1/3 innings, giving up three runs but only one earned, and striking out five.

Big second inning sends Vikings to sectional final

Gibraltar only needed one inning to make its case for a sectional final appearance as they beat Niagara 9-2 in Crivitz.

 

Thirteen batters came up to bat in the second inning thanks to a handful of walks and hit by pitches collected by the Viking hitters. Doubles by Griffin Reinhardt and Luke Steebs drove in two runs a piece while bases loaded walks and hit by pitches accounted for the other tallies in the nine run inning.   Niagara scored their two runs on an RBI single by Elliot Peterson in the bottom half of the inning.

 

Steebs grinded it out for the victory, striking out three and giving up two runs in the complete game win.

 

Gibraltar faces Athens in the sectional final in Crivitz with a chance to qualify for the state tournament in Grand Chute on the line.

 

 

Gibraltar looks to clinch state berth on 105.1 The Viking

A successful year for Gibraltar athletics hopes to continue this afternoon when the Vikings baseball team takes on Niagara in the WIAA Sectional Semifinal. Many of the players on the team have already been a part of postseason runs this season including a quarterfinal appearance in the 8-man football tournament and a trip to the sectional semifinals in basketball. The Vikings have won their last two games by a margin of 21-3 after accepting a forfeit from Gresham in the playoff’s first round. It is very similar to last year’s regional championship team that also found its bats late in the season. Coach Jay Kita says the offense is coming around at the right time.

Tim Kowols will have the call beginning at 1:00 p.m. with the first pitch at 1:30 p.m. from Crivitz High School on 105.1 The Viking. The winner of the contest between the Vikings and the Badgers will face either Athens or Greenwood for a chance to play in the state tournament at Fox Cities Stadium in Grand Chute.
