Luxemburg-Casco Baseball Senior Day: Bryce Hanmann

nger playing days. Bryce also credits his uncle as well for teaching and coaching alongside his dad and giving him pointers and tips as he was coming up. Bryce has lots of fond memories from his playing days with friends, family, and being coached by his father and Uncle. He cites that once as a youngster they lost a game to a talented Green Bay Sluggers, and the opportunity presented itself to play them the following day. Bryce was not a fan of the decision, and in fact was put on the mound to pitch in addition to his lack of interest to play this team again. He ended pitching a one hit, three inning gem, but credits the loss to fellow Senior Jake Cravillion for giving up a Grand Slam to a future Clemson commit. His fondest moment of this was the opposing coach after the game driving by just pointing at him and smiling as he drove away. The recognition may have been little and unseen to others, but affirmation from an opposing coach has stuck with Bryce to this day. This can remind us that simple acts of good can go a long way and mean a lot more than we know. So fast forward to 2020 to a young man with a big heart and a bright future. Bryce is heading to UW-Madison in the coming year to enroll in the Kinesiology program where he hopes one day to find himself on the training staff of a professional sports team. Helping others and being around sports will be a great fit for Bryce. In his leisure he also enjoys fishing, boating, and napping. The napping probably ensues after he downs a plate of his favorite ribs. Outside of baseball, Bryce is a decorated student have been named at one time the class president. Bryce thanks his dad for the past entirety of his life for being his role model. From coaching, teaching, to just supporting him. Bryce told us that when he looks down the road 30 years, he wants his life to mirror that of his father’s and everything his father has accomplished. Bryce, we’re going to miss the positive spirit, the joyful laugh, and the big heart you shared with us over these past years. Good Luck to you moving forward 21! Everyone, join me in congratulating Bryce Hanmann!

Luxemburg-Casco Soccer Senior Day: Natalie Haen

Our final senior to honor is Natalie Haen. Natalie is a hardworking and motivated player. She is selfless and always puts the team first. Her sophomore year the team was in need of a goalkeeper; Natalie stepped up into the role even though she had no prior experience. This position can be very difficult to play but Natalie was fearless in that position and put in a lot of work to continuously improve. Her strong work ethic led her to being voted the hardest worker on the team the past two seasons and being selected as honorable mention all-conference. Her selflessness and leadership will be missed.


Luxemburg-Casco Soccer Senior Day: Ally Zimmerman

Today we are honoring senior Ally Zimmerman. Ally is a hard working player that always gives 100% when she’s out on the field. Throughout her high school career she improved and became more aggressive and confident throughout each season. She is the definition of a true team player and was always supporting her teammates whether she was on the field or sidelines. She knows the meaning of being a part of a team and creating a family like atmosphere. She has stepped up as a leader and was always welcoming to the younger players. Her kindheartedness and hard work will be missed.

Luxemburg-Casco Soccer Senior Day: Madi VandenBush

Today we are honoring Madilyn VandenBush, the first of our three seniors. During her soccer career, Madi has overcome a lot of obstacles but has maintained a positive attitude. Right before her junior season she tore her ACL. However, she did not let this stop her from being a part of a sport she loves. Madi put in a lot of hard work to rehab and get ready to play again. The coaches were very impressed with Madi’s work ethic this off-season and the positive role model she became for the other players. Unfortunately, Madi tore her ACL again right before her senior season of soccer was supposed to start. Once again she remained positive and immediately said she still wanted to be a part of the team as a manager this year. Sitting on the bench watching teammates play can be difficult but I think this shows a lot about Madi’s character that she was willing to still be there for her teammates. Madilyn's positive personality will be greatly missed next year.

Luxemburg-Casco Baseball Senior Day: Jake Cravillion

 Jake has been playing baseball like many of his teammates since a young age, 6 to be exact. He played up until his 8th grade year and then took a brief hiatus in his first year of high school, but attributes missing that time and fun with his friends to getting back into it his sophomore year. Jake compiles all his fun and joy spent with fellow teammates on the field during practices and games as his fondest memory. He can’t put into words one exact moment, to him it was overall memory he’ll keep with him of the everyday camaraderie with his buddies. Jake wears the Spartan Jersey #9 and crept his way higher and higher up in the batting order last season leading him to an All-Conference Honorable Mention as an Outfielder. In his free time, when he isn’t working for McMahon’s Furniture, he enjoys a good Joe Rouer’s burger with some friends. We are going to miss the energy this young man provides us everyday. Here’s to the guy who never seems to stop smiling. Congratulations Jake, we wish you all the best in your future endeavors!

Luxemburg-Casco Baseball Senior Day: Trenton Dart

We honor Trenton who was looking to step on the field this year after taking off last season to recover from an ACL Surgery. He admits its one of the toughest things he’s accomplished in his life to date. Recovery was a year of hard work and determination which prepared him for the field this spring. Trenton loves baseball and started playing at the young age of 6 to be a part of a team and play with his friends. His fondest baseball memory he recalls is the first homerun he smashed in little league and the cheering from family and friends as he rounded the bases. Growing up, Trenton credits his dad for teaching him the game and helping with throwing him batting practice in the cages, hitting him ground balls and playing catch. Trenton told us that his father is his role model and wants to mirror his work ethic as he moves on in life. Next Year Trenton will be enrolled into the Mechanical Engineering program at UW-Platteville. Trenton’s plans are to take his degree and get more involved in the field of satellites or rockets and one day work for NASA or SpaceX, and hopefully that is someplace warm he would like to add. Trenton, on behalf of the Luxemburg-Casco Baseball community, we thank you for your time and energy put into this program and wish you all the best in your future endeavors!

DKHS.com's Champion of Champions Series: 1998 Luxemburg-Casco Cross Country

After almost 10 years away from the podium, Luxemburg-Casco's girls cross country team finally got their name called last at the famed state cross country course in Wisconsin Rapids.

 

The girls ran a longer 4K course at this time and despite not having a single runner in the top 10 overall, it was the only team with all five of its scoring participants in the top 30. Abby Widmer led the way for the Spartans with a time of 15:29, good for 11th place overall. Stephanie Dantinne and Jessica Lemens finished back to back in 23rd and 24th place respectively with both breaking the 16-minute barrier. Six of its seven runners finished with a sub-17 minute time.

DKHS.com's Champion of Champions Series: 1989 Luxemburg-Casco cross country

The 1989 state champion Luxemburg-Casco girls' cross country team featured some familiar faces, and not just because they were on the 1987 squad.

 

Led by Mark Annoye, Tracy Wendricks (15th, 12:28), Monica Thiry (48th, 13:00) and Ann Destiche (4th, 11:50) returned to bring the trophy back to Luxemburg after a year away. Destriche crushed her time from the last state championship, dropping her time by almost a minute to give the Spartans the coveted one spot for scoring teams. Three of its top five runners finished in the top-10 of title-eligible squads. There was plenty of family on the team as well with Destriche being joined by Joan (11th, 12:22) and the Stahl family was represented by Jenny and Becky.

 

Another Destriche, Mary, would win the individual title in 1990, but the team would finish as the runner-up to Mount Horeb. The Spartans beat second-place Verona in 1989 by a score of 85 to 97.

DKHS.com's Champion of Champions Series: 1987 Luxemburg-Casco Cross Country

After coming up just shy of winning a second straight state title, the 1987 Luxemburg-Casco girls' cross country team was able to prevail once again.

 

During the drought, the Spartans reached the podium as a team in 1983 and Carrie Haen reached the summit as an individual a few years later. In 1987 it was a different Haen that led the charge with Leann Haen running a 12:15 on the 3200-meter course. All five scoring runners placed in the top 35 of team title contenders, with Tracy Wendricks (20th, 12:27), Ann Destiche (27th, 12:36) and Cleo Dorner (36th, 12:43) all breaking the 13-minute barrier. It would be the first of four Mark Annoye-led teams to win a state title.

DKHS.com's Champion of Champions Series: 1982 Luxemburg-Casco Cross Country

Every cross country powerhouse needs a start, and for Luxemburg-Casco it was 1982.

 

Coached by Russell Fameree, the breakthrough came one year after the Spartans came in second place to Verona by just a mere five points. In a two mile race, the Spartans placed five runners in the top 20, blowing past their rivals from Verona 40-81. Sue Rabas paced the Spartans with a time an 11:46 to come in sixth, followed closely by Jill Stahl with a time of 11:56 to finish in tenth. The third-place finisher for the team was Carrie Haen, who would go on to win an individual state title in cross country in 1985.

Teams discuss potential summer season

Area high school teams are weighing their options for potential action this summer.

 

The WIAA canceled the spring season last week due to COVID-19 concerns, but it left the door for teams to start up July 1st for 30 days. It allows a couple of weeks in between the truncated summer and the fall season and would allow seniors to wear their alma mater's colors one more time before starting college. Luxemburg-Casco track coaches met virtually with its team Monday about the possibility of possibly competing in July, even if it is just an intrasquad meet.

Luxemburg-Casco shines light for spring athletes

Luxemburg-Casco showed its support for its spring sports athletes Monday night by simply flipping the switch. 

 

The school district lit up its outdoor sports facilities in support of its spring sports athletes, which have had their seasons uprooted thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. It follows a trend started earlier this month when Kewaunee and Southern Door participated in a similar light-up campaign. Spring sports athletes have a glimmer of hope that a truncated season could take place when the WIAA meets on Tuesday via teleconference.

Former L-C star Schiltz catches Green Bay elite eight appearance

Out for most of the year with an injury, former Luxemburg-Casco star Cassie Schiltz is catching fire in the Green Bay women's basketball lip sync championships.

 

Lip syncing the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's "Fishin' in the Dark," Schiltz defeated Meghan Pingel's take on "International Harvester"  in the Sweet 16 round in the 2020 Green Bay Women's Basketball Lip Sync Battle. Schiltz will have a tough task in the elite eight round if she wants to set up an All-Kewaunee County semifinal with former Algoma standout Anna Dier. She will have to topple head coach Kevin Borseth for that right.

 

 

DKHS.com's Champion of Champions Series: 2010 Luxemburg-Casco Softball

Twice was just as nice for Luxemburg-Casco when it captured its second straight softball championship in 2010. 

 

The Spartans matched their success from the year before on the mound, allowing just two runs in two days including a shutout in the state title game against Rice Lake. In its 5-2 victory over Fort Atkinson, Kalli Schmelzer went the distance, allowing just one earned run while scattering just five hits. The game was tied 2-2 heading into the top half of the seventh inning when the Spartans exploded for three runs. Mariah Mleziva was responsible for two of the three runs, tripling home Lacey Agamaite before she scored on a wild pitch.

 

In their 4-0 win over Rice Lake, the Spartans once again struck late, including a three-run sixth inning to put the game well out of reach. Schmelzer allowed just one hit in her second complete game of the tournament while striking out six. The Mlezivas and the Detervilles keyed the offensive rally in the sixth inning. Dawn Deterville drove in Missy Mleziva to drive in a run and scored on a wild pitch while Danielle Deterville was up to bat. Mariah Mleziva scored on an RBI hit by Amanda Engebose. The state championship game against Rice Lake saw the Spartans tie a state record with six sacrifices.

DKHS.com's Champion of Champions Series: 2009 Luxemburg-Casco Softball

Luxemburg-Casco limited its opponents in the 2009 state softball tournament to just a run apiece en route to its first state championship in the sport.

 

Danielle Deterville proved to be kryptonite for bats at the state tournament, pitching complete games in both contests, allowing just one run each game and scattering a total of just nine hits. Deterville provided much of the offense in the team's opening game against Altoona, driving in two Spartans on an RBI single in the team's 3-1 win.

 

The Spartans would clinch their first softball state championship with a 4-1 win over Monroe. Lacey Agamaite opened the scoring by reaching home on a wild pitch followed by Steffi Kinnard driving in her first of two runs by plating Nicole Bruening. The Spartans would scored more insurance two innings later thanks to another Kinnard RBI hit and her alert base running on an error.

 

It was the first state championship in its second try for the Spartans, repeating the feat the following year. We will highlight that team later this week at DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com.

L-C wrestling announce academic all-state nominees

The Luxemburg-Casco wrestling team believes it has three members that were among the best on the mat and in the classroom in the past year.

 

Easton Worachek, Hunter Joniaux, and Lucas Joniaux were nominated to earn the status of an academic all-state wrestler. The honor is open to those wrestlers who had at least a 3.5 GPA and were a sectional qualifier. 

 

 

Woracheck to continue his career

After a year off, Colton Worachek is heading back to school. 

 

According to the Luxemburg-Casco Wrestling Facebook page, L-C alum and volunteer Assistant Coach Worachek will continue his education and wrestling career at Itasca Community College in the fall. The last time he took the mat competitively was 2019 when he ended his state championships weekend on a high note with a win in the 3rd place match at 160 pounds. He was a three time state qualifier, placing twice. Itasca Community College is based in Grand Rapids, Minnesota.

DKHS.com's Champion of Champions Series: 2019 Luxemburg-Casco Volleyball

The Spartans won their first-ever state championship on the floor of the Resch Center as the #3 seed, sweeping Wisconsin Lutheran 25-15, 25-22, 25-23 in the semis and beating McFarland in straight sets 25-21, 25-17, 25-23.

 

In the semi-finals, the Spartans girls jumped out to a 9-1 lead in the first set and cruised to a 25-15 win.  Set two saw the Spartans control most of the game and led from start to finish to win 25-22.  The final set was a see-saw affair that saw the Vikings take a three-point lead only to have the Spartans come back and prevail 25-23. 

 

In the finals, Luxemburg-Casco fought off a furious rally by McFarland in the third set to capture its first-ever state volleyball title. Finding themselves down early in the first set 8-2, Luxemburg-Casco was able to regroup and took control late to win 25-21, capturing seven of the final 10 points. Luxemburg-Casco made McFarland dig out of 13-6  hole, but never let them get within striking distance in the second game, winning 25-17. Championships are not meant to be easy and Luxemburg-Casco found that out in the third game. McFarland got out to a 13-7 lead before head coach Jeff Frey called his first time-out to stem the tide. It worked as Luxemburg-Casco captured five of the next seven points before McFarland showed a burst of its own, forcing Frey to call another timeout. Luxemburg-Casco would score 11 of the final 15 points to clinch the title. Hannah Derenne showed nice touch in many of her team-leading 14 kills while Grace Holschuh added another 11. Bekah Day registered 39 assists in her final match for Luxemburg-Casco while Alli Routhieaux led the team in digs with 13. A relatively even game statistically between the two teams, Luxemburg-Casco outpaced top-seeded McFarland in kills 45-27.

L-C track coach wants to keep pursuing the dream

Luxemburg-Casco track coach Neil Seering is hopeful the season can get underway by April 6th.

 

Addressing his team via video, Seering gave his team a variety of updates and tips on how to stay in shape for a season that could start as soon as the beginning of April. He pointed out the family atmosphere he has helped create, pointing out the hope that the seniors can have some kind of closure to their career and new members to stick with the program. 

 

 

Luxemburg-Casco suspends athletic season

Following the lead of many universities and colleges, Luxemburg-Casco School District is shutting down its athletics programming until further notice.

 

Canceling the athletic practices is part of a multi-prong effort to prevent the possible spread of COVID-19. Other actions included in the release include canceling all after-school activities, restricting the use of the building by non-school groups, postponing large school events, and keeping an eye on the travel of their staff and students. School as of right now is a go for Monday, but students are being asked to bring home their textbooks and computers just in case. You can read the full release below:

 

March 13, 2020 2:42 PM CST

Yesterday, Governor Tony Evers declared a State of Emergency (Low Level) regarding COVID-19. Today, school leaders from Kewaunee County, along with the Kewaunee County Health Department, collaborated to prepare for next steps in the event that the State of Emergency level continues to rise.

At this time, school will be in operation as normal unless new information warrants a decision should be made otherwise. Strictly as a precaution, your child’s teachers have asked them to bring home textbooks, (Chromebooks for high school students) and other instructional materials in the event that we decide or are directed to close for a period of time. It is important to note that we are taking all recommended precautions. As a reminder, the pace and scope of change is very rapid and therefore we will be communicating updates frequently as new information becomes available.

The Kewaunee County team of educators and Public Health officials will be reconvening again on Sunday, March 15 to discuss any new developments.

The following preventative measures have already been enacted by the L-C School District:

We are actively following the travel plans and subsequent restrictions of both our staff and families. At this time, those restrictions apply to level 2 and 3 international communities as well as the state(s) of California, Washington, New York and cruise ship travel. Currently, a 14 day quarantine is highly recommended for anyone returning from these areas.

Large group events such as concerts, banquets and other similar gatherings will be suspended until further notice.

Until further notice we are suspending all after-school activities effective immediately. This means no athletic, club or play practices will be held. We will also be restricting our building use by non-school groups outside of the regular school day.

Please understand that new information is coming out on a frequent basis and thus we are doing our best to communicate accordingly. In the event that significant action is required we are prepared and resourced appropriately.
