Kewaunee football dispatches Crivitz 48-12 Friday night

The Storm offense was almost as potent on the gridiron Friday night as Mother Nature was this past week. It started on the ground for Kewaunee with running back Owen Kudick averaging nine yards per carry. Kudick was the workhorse handling all 31 rushing attempts on the night for 279 yards and four scores. Quarterback Ryan Carmichael had three touchdown passes of his own balanced against an interception. Carmichael finished the night with 12 completions on 16 attempts for 108 yards. 

A concerning thing for Coach Randy Charles and his staff is that big plays reared their head again against the Kewaunee defense. Crivitz’s two touchdowns were a 36-yard pass and a 70-yard run. Crivitz only ran 25 plays on offense which makes that stand out even more. Kewaunee is off this week. Originally they were scheduled to line up against Sturgeon Bay but that game has been forfeited by the Clippers and Kewaunee was unable to swap in another opponent.


Kewaunee girls cross country trying to repeat

Elizabeth Lamack and company on the Kewaunee girls cross country team are looking to repeat as conference champions. Now a junior, Lamack was on last year's conference-winning team and hope to leads the Storm again in this campaign. Both the boys and girls teams will be at Roncalli today along with Howards Grove, Manitowoc Lutheran, Mishicot, Roncalli, Saint Lawrence Seminary, Sevastopol, St. Mary's Springs and Two Rivers.


2014 was the correct answer to Friday's trivia question. Congratulations to Joe Kassner for answering the question correctly! Joe is the winner of a $25 certificate to The Grove in Kewaunee.

Kewaunee football at Crivitz Friday night

The youth movement for Kewaunee football in 2019 continued last week. Junior running back Jack Severin and sophomore receiver Ben Heim played pivotal roles in keying the Storm's 4th quarter comeback against Coleman. In Week Four, Kewaunee travels to Crivitz. The Wolverines lost at Southern Door last week. Head Coach Randy Charles says being able to watch film featuring Crivitz and a team Kewaunee knows very well is an advantage in this week's preparation.


Crivitz allowed Southern Door's Nick Baudhuin to run for over 400 yards last week. Kewaunee likes to have a balanced attack but after numbers like that they may skew towards the ground game Friday night.

Volleyball preview: Sturgeon Bay, Kewaunee in action

Kewaunee football nips Coleman Friday Night

Kewaunee had to come from behind Friday night against Coleman. Ryan Carmichael found sophomore Benjamin Heim from ten yards out for the go-ahead score in the fourth quarter. The Storm added a two-point conversion to take a three-point lead which held up as the final score 21-18. It was Heim's first varsity game and he showed up on the stat sheet in a big way, 8 grabs for over 100 yards in total. Carmichael was 13-22 for 167 yards and two touchdowns. He also threw an interception. On the ground, Owen Kudick led the way for the Storm with 140 yards but Jack Severin picked up the rushing touchdown. Severin gained 77 yards on seven carries.


Coleman was on the board first, Cayden Bintz to Tyler Blanchard from five yards out. The Cougars did not convert for two. Before the end of the first, Severin notched his rushing touchdown to make it 7-6 Kewaunee after one. Carmichael completed a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jason Selner but missed the extra point. At the half, it was Kewaunee up 13-6.


The only score of the third was a 29-yard scamper by Coleman's Zach Cops. The Cougars failed on another two-point try and Kewaunee clung to a 13-12 lead. In the fourth, Coleman took its first lead on a 4-yard run by QB Cayden Bintz to make it 18-13 Cougars before Kewaunee's comeback.

Kewaunee drops three straight to Oconto

The Kewaunee Storm could dig themselves out of holes Thursday night as they dropped their match to Oconto in three straight sets.


The Blue Devils won the sets by scores of 25-19, 25-11, and 25-15. No statistics were available for Kewaunee.


The Storm heads back into action on Monday when they face Roncalli, Reedsville, and Brillion at home beginning at 5 p.m.

Cullen brothers, Lamack outkick storms at De Pere Invitational

More than one storm participated in Thursday's De Pere Invitational featuring Kewaunee.


Heavy rains and lightning in the area made finishing one 5k race at the De Pere Invitational questionable let alone four, so at the suggestion of Green Bay West's most senior head coach, all the schools agreed to have all the kids run together -- boys and girls from the varsity and junior varsity. In the end, Kewaunee boys' team finished in sixth place and did not have enough runners to score on the girls' side. Kewaunee's James (18:38) and Cameron Cullen (18:58) broke the tape in less than 19 minutes while Kewaunee's Elizabeth Lamack (23:08) was the girls' team top finisher.



6. 125 Kewaunee ( 20:36 1:42:57 4:22)

Kewaunee football looking for complete game

Last Friday night, Kewaunee evened its season at 1-1 with a roller coaster win at Manawa. The Storm responded well to the week one loss by putting together a great first quarter. After 12 minutes of play it was 21-0 Storm. At halftime though, it was tied. Head Coach Randy Charles says he is not concerned, yet, about his team's inability to put together a complete football game.


That doesn't mean it isn't on his wishlist though. To open conference play, Kewaunee faces Coleman. The Cougars like to prowl on the ground. Expect Tyler Blanchard and Owen Kinziger to both get carries. They are each over 100 yards rushing on the season. Kewaunee is more balanced. In the win against Manawa, the Storm threw for 242 yards and ran for 180. Owen Kudick remains the threat on the ground with Max Hanrahan the receiver of choice for QB Ryan Carmichael. 

Kewaunee soccer picks up first victory

Kewaunee soccer picked up their first victory of the season in the home-opener on Tuesday. The Storm took down Denmark by a final score of 8-2. They are now 1-2 on the season. Kewaunee will have another home game on Thursday when they take on Green Bay West, kickoff at 4:30 PM. 

Kewaunee football holds on in Manawa

In the first quarter Friday night, a running clock looked like a foregone conclusion as Kewaunee jumped out to a 21-0 lead over the Wolves. Kewaunee opened up its bag of tricks early with running back Owen Kudick delivering a pass to receiver Max Hanrahan for 70 yards. The rest of the way it was Ryan Carmichael throwing for Kewaunee. He ended the night 12-24 for 172 yards and a TD. Kudick returned to the run game and was equally productive with 180 yards on 25 attempts and 2 TDs. 


Manawa wouldn’t go away though. They flipped the script in the second quarter, blanking the Storm 21-0 and at the half it was tied up. Manawa took its first lead of the game in the fourth when quarterback Mason Wiesner connected for 24 yards to Riley Krenke. The extra point was unsuccessful and Manawa led 30-28. Kewaunee wrested the lead back with Kudick’s second TD run and a Carmichael two-point conversation scamper to make the score a 36-30 final.

Kewaunee Volleyball 4-2 in Hilbert Tournament

The Storm ran the gauntlet Friday with six volleyball matches at the Hilbert Invitational. After dropping both matches in Stevens Point earlier in the week, Kewaunee took four of the six in Hilbert to put their overall record at 4-4. Kewaunee swept Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah twice, with the first matchup ending 25-20, 25-14. The second was 25-19, 25-18. Kewaunee topped Cambria-Friesland 25-10, 25-27, 15-7. The first set against Cambria was the Storm’s best of the season so far.


In the second half of the day, Kewaunee swept Kohler, grounding the Blue Bombers 25-23, 25-23. Kewaunee would lose the next two matchups, falling 16-25, 19-25 to Oconto Falls and 21-25, 25-22, 10-15 to Brillion.

Kewaunee Volleyball drops two to start year

The Kewaunee Storm failed to generate any lightning on August 27th, dropping their first two matches of the year at the Stevens Point Invitational. The host Panthers kept Kewaunee in check 17-25 and 18-25 for a two-set sweep. The second match of the day against the Berlin Indians got off on the wrong foot with Kewaunee dropping the first set 14-25. The Storm stabilized, taking the second set 25-17 but it was all Berlin in the deciding frame, 5-15. Kewaunee made adjustments and fared better in a tournament at the end of the week.

Kewaunee's second game last season was a success

Kewaunee played their second game of the 2019 football season last night and the second game of last season was a great success. The Storm rolled into Two Rivers and won 47-14. Owen Kudick and Travis Reinke each scored three touchdowns in the game.


Two Rivers was the correct answer to Friday's trivia question. Congratulations to Bradley Klatt for answering the question correctly! Bradley is the winner of a $25 certificate to The Grove in Kewaunee.

Storm fall to NEW Lutheran/Providence Academy

The Kewaunee Storm soccer team could not stop the offensive onslaught by NEW Lutheran/Providence Academy before losing 8-2.


Jose Diaz scored both goals for the Storm in the first half, but entered the second stanza down 6-2 thanks to a hat trick by the Blazers' Luke Bantamoi. It could have been even more lopsided if it wasn't for goalie Paul Rosinsky, who had 10 saves for Kewaunee in the loss.

Kewaunee girls post top 5 finish at Chief K

Kewaunee football looks to rebound

After giving up 49 points to Kiel, Kewaunee hopes for a return to normalcy. The Storm didn't lose a game in the regular season in 2018 but this year has already proven to be a different animal. Kiel scored in just about every way possible. A 93 yard kickoff return, a fumble recovery, two pass plays of over 50 yards...and that was just the first half. Kiel's three second half scores were from outside the red zone too. Head Coach Randy Charles says it's important not to panic.


Kewaunee is back on the field for non-conference action Friday at Manawa. Manawa won its opening contest but scored a pedestrian seven points in doing so. That's closer to normal, just what the Storm are seeking.


Kewaunee soccer drops opening game

Kewaunee struggled in their opening game of the season on Tuesday. The Storm traveled to Roncalli to face Roncalli/Two Rivers and lost 8-0. Kewaunee will play at Green Bay NEW Lutheran on Thursday with a 4:30 PM kickoff.

Kiel keeps Kewaunee off-balance in opener

Going into Week One, Kewaunee Storm head coach Randy Charles was concerned about the matchup in the trenches. It turns out, Kewaunee was done in by special teams and big plays. The Storm fell 49-21.


Kiel boasted a strong defense in 2018 and is anchored by two defensive ends who are set for a special year in 2019. Kewaunee's 21-point first half had to have been a best-case scenario for the Storm, and yet, they still trailed after 24 minutes. 


The Raiders hit on a 67-yard pass play, returned a fumble, and a kickoff for their first three scores en route to 28 points of their own by the half. Three more touchdowns of over 20 yards in the third quarter gave Kiel a decisive victory to open 2019.


Kewaunee gets Manawa in Week Two. They won a rather different affair Friday night, beating Markesan 7-0.

Kewaunee Storm face stern test in opener

Kewaunee rattled off 11 straight wins to open 2018 and, this year, they return a bevy of skill players including running back Owen Kudick and QB Ryan Carmichael. Coach Randy Charles is in a pretty good position but nerves exist before every season opener. The Storm open up at home against Kiel :: KEEL::, a 2018 playoff team that returns a lot out of the powerful Eastern Wisconsin Conference. Kiel's defensive ends are the strength of the unit going up against an untested Kewaunee offensive line. That matchup is Charles' greatest area of concern:


Kiel favors the run offensively. Combining a clock-eating rushing offense with a great defense could threaten to limit the opportunities for Carmichael and Kudick to work their magic. Kewaunee is a playoff-tested program with a rich tradition. Pedigree says they'll be ready. The top-notch non-conference matchup kicks off Friday night.

Kewaunee prepared for tennis opener

The peninsula's only tennis team is ready for its 2019 campaign.
