Kewaunee High School

DKHS.com's Champion of Champions: 2010 Kewaunee Football

After being the bridesmaid in four state title games, Kewaunee finally prevailed in 2010.

 

The Storm played at Camp Randall in 2001, 2006, 2007, and 2009 only to fall in the season's final game. In each one of those years, the Storm entered the game undefeated. They were able to hold onto their perfect season in 2010, beating Brodhead/Juda 42-13 under the leadership of Kurt Flaten. Kewaunee set title game records with four interceptions by the team, and three interceptions individually by Jordan Schmidt. The Storm had 11 players on the Packerland-Olympian All-Conference team, lead by Doug Delebreau (2332 yards passing), Craig Christman (1937 yards rushing), and Schmidt (831 yards receiving). Those three players led the conference in passing, rushing, and receiving respectively. The offense rolled all season, averaging almost 40 points a game, but their defense was not a slouch either, pitching five shut-outs during the course of the season. Beating their two peninsula rivals in Sturgeon Bay and Southern Door by a combined score of 105-10, the Storm beat Winneconne, Wautoma, Roncalli, Baldwin-Woodville, and Brodhead/Juda in the playoffs to claim their first only state title in football.

WIAA State Championship at Camp Randall Stadium

WIAA's spring season hangs by thread

What was thought to be a death sentence for the WIAA's spring season is now clinging to life support.

 

Governor Tony Evers shut down school buildings until the end of the school year, canceling extracurricular activities in the process. That could have been enough for the WIAA to drop the hammer on its spring sports season. Instead, the WIAA left the door open just a crack, saying on its website that "will discuss the membership’s options for the remainder of the spring sports seasons and for summertime regulations at its scheduled meeting on April 21 via video conferencing." The WIAA will face an uphill battle moving forward to start the spring sports season since the order postpones all interscholastic practices, scrimmages, and events. It also lost UW-Madison as a state championship host site earlier this month when the campus announced it would be shuttering its campus until June 30th.


Kewaunee's Tlachac receives All-Star invite

The reigning Packerland Player of the Year will see her high school basketball career get a one-game extension in June.

 

Kewaunee's Mackenzie Tlachac will play in the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches All-Star game for the Division 3 North squad. The UW-Oshkosh recruit averaged 19.1 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 3 steals per game during her senior season for the Storm. In addition to her conference accolades, the WBCA named Tlachac to its Division 3 All-State team.

Kewaunee football prepares for 2020 season

With playoff victories coming in recent years, the Kewaunee football team is hoping to continue its success in 2020.

 

The Storm are coming off another Packerland Conference championship season, but will have to rely on its underclassman to step up after the graduation of seniors like Tanor Bortolini and Ryan Carmichael.

Kewaunee's Severin leads Packerland Wrestling honors

Jack Severin was one of seven Kewaunee Storm wrestlers to earn All Packerland honors after it was announced over the weekend.

 

Severin swept the competition at Packerland duals this season before carrying that momentum all the way to a state title in Division 2 at 126 pounds. He was also named the Packerland Wrestler of the Year. Southern Door had four wrestlers and Peshtigo had three to round out the roster which celebrates the best at each weight class over the course of the dual season.

Kewaunee drops regional final to Kewaskum

Another special Kewaunee girls' basketball season ended in heartbreak Saturday night in a 49-34 loss to Kewaskum.

 

Down by just one at the break, the Indians outpaced the Storm 27-13 in the second frame to give the home team just its second loss on the season. Averaging around 20 points a game for most of the season MacKenzie Tlachac was held to just 10 points in the loss. Madilyn Dogs led the way for the Indians, scoring 15 points to secure the sectional berth.

Kewaunee girls survive second-round scare

Coming off a bye, the Kewaunee High School girls’ basketball team got a taste of postseason play Friday night. Kewaunee survived against Denmark, 50-46. It was close throughout, the Storm nursed a one-point halftime lead and never could pull away. Denmark plays in the North Eastern Conference, against larger schools. Sharpened by a tougher level of competition, the Vikings were able to give state-ranked Kewaunee everything they could handle.


Kewaunee’s leading scorer was Hailey Gaedtke (15 points), followed closely by Mackenzie Tlachac (14). Denmark’s Jessica Heraly had a game-high 21 points. Kewaunee returns to the court Saturday, another home game against Kewaskum. The Indians wrecked Brillion Friday, 55-28.

 

Severin opens WIAA State Wrestling Tournament action

The road to another podium finish for Jack Severin begins today in Madison as the Kewaunee senior wrestles his first match at the state tournament.

 

Severin will face Somerset's Tommy Hantsbarger at 126 pounds in Division 2 when the session begins at 11:15 a.m.

Kewaunee girls prepare for first WIAA Playoff game

The road to Green Bay finally begins for the Kewaunee girls basketball team Friday night when they host Denmark Friday night.

 

The Storm enters the game 21-1 on the season and on a 16 game winning streak. The Vikings were the first matchup of the season for the Storm, beating them on the road 60-46. Denmark outscored Two Rivers by 15 in the first half in its 56-41 victory on Tuesday to advance to the second round. The winner of the game will advance to Friday's regional final against either Kewaskum or Brillion. A Storm win would ensure one more home game for the Storm. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.

Kewaunee boys ready for conference championship game

The Kewaunee High School boys’ basketball team did what it had to do Monday night against Sevastopol, easily defeating the Pioneers, 79-39. Kewaunee ends the regular season against Southern Door in a rematch of a 44-43 nail biter from earlier in the season. That lone point is the difference in the Packerland standings with Kewaunee in first and the Eagles trailing close behind in second. The game tips at 7:30 PM.

Severin punches ticket to state

Going up from Division 3 to Division 2 did not mean much to Kewaunee's Jack Severin.

 

Severin won the 126 pound weight class at the Oconto Falls sectional on Saturday, punching his ticket to the state tournament in Madison. He will await his opponent when his route to another state medal begins on Friday.

Kewaunee boys win as showdown takes shape

The Kewaunee High School boys’ basketball team controlled Peshtigo from the start Friday night en route to a 75-47 victory. Kewaunee stretched an 11-point halftime lead to the final commanding margin of victory. The win pushes the Storm to 13-1 in the conference, a game ahead of Southern Door with two games to play. One of those contests just so happens to be against the Eagles. Before Thursday’s potential championship contest, Kewaunee has to make a trip to Sevastopol Monday night. The Pioneers edged Gibraltar Friday in a mild upset.

Kewaunee boys survive scare at Oconto

The Kewaunee High School boys’ basketball team maintained their slim one-game lead in the Packerland standings…barely. The Storm eked past Oconto on the road, 60-57, in a seesaw affair Tuesday. It was the only Packerland varsity contest that was played as scheduled due to the morning’s winter storm. Kewaunee Schools operated on a two-hour delay, and that may have affected the Storm. Earlier in the season, Kewaunee beat Oconto handily, 70-48, as a comparison.


Both teams had three players reach double figures. Ryan Carmichael netted 23 to lead Kewaunee while Oconto was paced by 16 from Josh Woller. Kewaunee is back on the court Friday against Peshtigo.

Kewaunee girls roll past Sevastopol

The Kewaunee High School girls’ basketball team rolled against Sevastopol Monday night, 76-42. Four players reached double figures as the Storm continue to work in more and more rest for key players, gearing up for the postseason beginning next week. That trend started in a comfortable victory at home against Gibraltar on January 31st when Mackenzie Tlachac had just eight points in limited minutes. 


Kewaunee is ranked number five in the state at the Division 3 level with a 20-1 record. Their only loss was at (10) Valders. Kewaunee remains perfect in the Packerland Conference with one game left, Thursday at Southern Door.

 

Kewaunee qualifies trio to sectional wrestling

Denmark provided tough matchup for defending regional champion Kewaunee in Division 2. The Storm had Jack Severin win his weight class along with Mason Jeanquart.  Mitchell Thompson clinched his sectional appearance with a second-place finish.

Kewaunee girls pull away from Peshtigo in the second half

After 18 minutes of play Friday night, the Kewaunee High School girls’ basketball team found themselves leading tenuously in what can only be described as a slugfest. A strong second half allowed the Storm to improve a 15-13 advantage to a 49-25 final score. Mackenzie Tlachac was the only Kewaunee player to crack double figures, finishing with 17 points. 


The Storm has two regular-season games remaining against Sevastopol and Southern Door. Kewaunee has already clinched the championship as they hold a five-game edge over Gibraltar and Peshtigo in second place.

 

Kewaunee boys tattoo NEW Lutheran

The Kewaunee High School boys’ basketball team defeated NEW Lutheran, 81-53, on Thursday night. The win pushes the Storm to 15-3 overall, 11-1 in the Packerland Conference with four games left in the regular season. Kewaunee saw several great performances Thursday including 24 points from Alex Rohr. Ryan Carmichael added 18 with Tanor Bortolini chipping in 14 points. 


Kewaunee has retaken sole possession of first place in the conference but there are plenty of potential hurdles between now and the final game. The Storm will face Oconto and Peshtigo who are both in the upper half of the Packerland standings, and they end the season against Southern Door who remains only a game back of Kewaunee.

 

Kewaunee girls heat up against Blue Devils

The Kewaunee High School girls’ basketball team rolled Tuesday in a complete effort against Oconto, topping the Blue Devils 72-41. Kewaunee yielded only 13 points to Oconto in the opening frame and still outscored the Blue Devils after the break while cycling in reserves. Mackenzie Tlachac had a game-high 23 points with Ashley Pawlitzky’s 17 offering strong support.


Kewaunee remains perfect in the Packerland Conference with three games remaining. Friday they travel to Peshtigo.

 

Kewaunee boys give Packerland huge postseason boost

The Kewaunee High School boys’ basketball team picked up a huge road win against ranked Shiocton Monday night, 75-70.
