Kewaunee High School

Kewaunee girls best bitter rival

Kewaunee and Algoma High Schools have one of the oldest rivalries in the state and that carried onto the hardwood Monday night. The Storm got the better of the matchup on the road, 55-27. Late in the first half the game remained close, Kewaunee nursing a 20-15 advantage before rattling off 15 straight points to win going away. 


Mackenzie Tlachac led Kewaunee with 20 points, near her season average, to go with six rebounds and four assists. Ashley Pawlitzky also got to double figures for Kewaunee, netting 10. Algoma was led by Sydney Zimmerman’s nine. Algoma scored 12 of its first 15 points from behind the three-point line but when Kewaunee clamped down defensively, the Wolves were lost trying to find offensive production.


Kewaunee faces Gibraltar Friday at home. Algoma’s next game is against NEW Lutheran.

 

Severin wins Herb Tyler Invite

Other place winners for Kewaunee included Logan Steinhorst (2nd place) Matt Wery (7th place), Max Severin (4th place), Mitchell Thompson (5th Place), Jason Reinke (4th place) and Jacob VanGoethem (7th place).

Lucky 13 for Kewaunee girls

Don’t tell the Kewaunee High School girls basketball team that 13 is an unlucky number. Thursday night the Storm dialed up some rough waters for the visiting Sturgeon Bay Clippers in a 58-35 win. Kewaunee improves to 13-0, 8-0 in the Packerland Conference. 


What has been impressive about the Storm this year, outside of their sterling record, is the ability to adapt to the game being played on any given night. Kewaunee seems just as comfortable winning a 43-29 game against Southern Door as they do streaking towards 80 points offensively like they put up against Sevastopol. That versatility should be an asset come the state playoffs.


Kewaunee returns to the court Monday at Algoma. Sturgeon Bay hosts NEW Lutheran.

 

Packerland clash lives up to the hype

Tuesday night in Brussels the first and second-place boys basketball teams in the Packerland squared off in what lived up to the hype as a marquee matchup. Kewaunee High School edged Southern Door 44-43. As you can imagine, the box score isn’t the prettiest. Alex Rohr and Tanor Bortolini paced the Storm with 11 and 10 points, respectively. Southern Door star Ryan Claflin was held in check for the most part, netting 21. Alex Daoust added 13. 


Kewaunee remains unbeaten while Southern Door picks up its second loss of the year in the conference dropping the Eagles to third place. Kewaunee’s tough week continues at Sturgeon Bay Friday. Again, first place in the conference is on the line as the Clippers only have one loss against the Storm’s unblemished mark. Southern Door will need some help getting to the top of standings but they do have rematches against Sturgeon Bay and Kewaunee later in the year. The Eagles’ next game comes Friday when they host NEW Lutheran.

 


Kewaunee girls dominate Kiel

The Kewaunee High School girls basketball team remains perfect over halfway through the regular season. The Storm had been dealing with some offensive struggles recently, putting up 44 against Peshtigo on the 10th and 43 against Southern Door last Thursday. They made it rain against Kiel though, cruising to a 64-42 final. Kewaunee’s next game is Thursday against Sturgeon Bay before renewing an old rivalry against Algoma on Monday.

Kewaunee boys drown out Sevastopol

The Kewaunee High School boys basketball team blanketed Sevastopol’s offense like a summer thunderstorm. The Pioneers could never get into a rhythm attacking the basket in an 83-48 loss. 


Kewaunee improves to 9-2 overall with their two losses being by less than five points to nonconference opponents. Kewaunee was lucky to catch Sturgeon Bay early in the season before the Clippers gelled into the championship threat that has been on display the past three weeks or so. The other challenger in the Packerland to hand Kewaunee a defeat is Southern Door. Kewaunee travels to the Eagles and Sturgeon Bay this week in consecutive games. If the Storm can pass that herculean test, a nonconference game against Shiocton and a return engagement with Southern Door on the final night of the regular season are the last challenges remaining this year.


Sevastopol travels to Green Bay for a 5:30 start against the Northeast Wisconsin Christian Home Schoolers. The game takes place at Holy Family School located at the intersection of Fisk Street and 9th Street. 

 


Storm girls' basketball clips Eagles

Kewaunee remains perfect on the season after beating Southern Door Thursday night 43-29.

 

Nursing a five-point lead at the break, the Storm outscored the Eagles 23-14 in the final stanza to put the game away. The two top scorers in the Packerland Conference once again led their respective teams with Kewaunee's Mackenzie Tlachac collecting 17 points and Southern Door's Nicole Norton registering nine points of her own.  

Kewaunee boys pick up nonconference win

The Kewaunee High School boys team evened their nonconference record by notching a 69-56 win against Brillion Tuesday night. Kewaunee remains perfect in conference play and they are a strong 8-2 overall. The Storm will be back on the court Friday when they host Sevastopol. The Pioneers boast one of the Packerland’s most prolific scorers. Robbie Pollman became the first Sevastopol boys player ever to reach 1,000 career points this past Saturday against Gibraltar.

Kewaunee blows past Peshtigo

The Kewaunee High School girls basketball team handed Peshtigo their first loss in conference play on Friday night. The Storm enjoyed some home cooking with a 44-28 triumph. Kewaunee and Peshtigo meet again on the other side of Green Bay on February 14th. With Kewaunee’s undefeated start now stretching to near the midpoint of the season, two games against Southern Door and a road trip to Valders of the Eastern Wisconsin Conference are the other games that look like potential trouble spots for the Storm.

Kewaunee boys blow out Oconto

The Kewaunee High School boys basketball team became the first Packerland team to get to five conference wins in 2019-2020. The Storm are the only squad with an unblemished record in conference, beating Oconto 70-48 on Tuesday. The Blue Devils fell to 3-3. Kewaunee’s next game is against Peshtigo who squeaked by Gibraltar Tuesday night. Kewaunee has proven itself as one of the conference’s best but Peshtigo remains an unknown commodity. The Bulldogs are 5-2 overall but don’t yet have a signature victory. Their conference wins have been against Sevastopol, Algoma, and Gibraltar who sport a combined 1-14 mark in the Packerland. Saturday afternoon’s matchup is definitely an intriguing one.

Storm doubles up Blue Devils

Ashley Pawlitzsky hit four three-pointers to lead Kewaunee to a 55-26 victory over Oconto Monday night. 

 

The Storm was able to build up a 30-13 lead by the half and did not let up too much, nearly matching that effort in the second half by a margin of 25-13. Mackenzie Tlachac led the Storm with 22 points, doing most of her work inside the arc. 

Kewaunee basketball teams both pick up wins

The Kewaunee High School girls basketball team remains perfect for the season, now 7-0, after a win against Seymour in a nonconference tilt Friday. The Storm’s defense was a blanket of cold rain on the Thunder offense, with the final score 51-39. Only one Seymour player got to double digits. Rilee Powless paced the squad with 12 points. Kewaunee, by comparison, had three players net at least 13. Katie Metzler led the team. Kewaunee’s next game is Monday at Oconto.


The Kewaunee boys sprinted out to a 10-point halftime lead at NEW Lutheran and were able to maintain it in the final 18 minutes. Kewaunee prevailed, 66-53.  It was not a characteristic Storm win. Ryan Carmichael was limited to 13 points but Tanor Bortolini exploded for 21 at center. NEW Lutheran was led by Marshall Bukowski with 21. Elijah Lange chipped in 13. Kewaunee improved to a league-leading 4-0 in the conference.

 

Boys basketball preview: Teams return to action

For the first time since winter break began, almost all local high school boys basketball teams will be in action Friday night.

 

In Packerland Conference action, Kewaunee travels to NEW Lutheran, Gibraltar makes the trip to Oconto, Algoma battles at Peshtigo, and Sevastopol hosts Sturgeon Bay. All of those games tip off at 7:30 p.m. Southern Door will have to wait one more day for its game when it hosts Little Chute Saturday night at 7:30 p.m.

 

In Northeastern Conference play, Luxemburg-Casco travels to Appleton for a 7 p.m. tip against Fox Valley Lutheran.

Kewaunee's Severin leads short-handed line-up

Kewaunee's Jack Severin was the only Storm wrestler that brought home hardware from the Lourdes Academy On The Water Classic over the weekend.

 

Severin lost his two matches in heartbreaking fashion, one in overtime in the quarterfinals and another close one-point decision in the 3rd place match. Otherwise, Severin won five times, collecting three pins in the process. The Storm only brought six wrestlers to the tournament.

Kewaunee boys flip the script

The Kewaunee High School boys basketball team has had two nonconference losses this season by a combined six points. Friday night, it was the Storm picking up a win in a close contest outside of the Packerland when they defeated Denmark 63-59. 
The Vikings have played some familiar opponents this year including Marinette and Southern Door, winning both of those games. The result would suggest the January 21st showdown in Brussels between the Storm and Eagles has a legitimate chance at deciding the conference’s regular season champion. 


Kewaunee’s next game is Friday, January 3rd against NEW Lutheran.

 

Storm wrestlers nearly take own title

Three Kewaunee Storm wrestlers nearly led the way for the team to claim their own tournament's championship on Saturday.

 

For the second place Storm, Jack Severin (126), Logan Steinhorst (132), and Jason Reinke (195) each went 5-0 on the day to win their weight classes. The team also had four other wrestlers finish in the top three.
