Luxemburg-Casco baseball almost pulls off upset

Luxemburg-Casco baseball almost prevented Wrightstown from clinching the North Eastern Conference crown on Thursday. The Spartans went on the road and narrowly lost to the Tigers 5-4. Jack Kinnard, Owen Deprez and Jake Cravillion all had two hits in defeat. 

 

L-C will have one final regular season hosting non-conference opponent Pulaski on Monday at 4:30 PM. 

 

Then on Thursday the 23rd, the Spartans will take on a very familiar foe. It will be the start of the postseason and for the eighth consecutive year, Luxemburg-Casco will play Denmark in the playoffs. The game will be at Denmark starting at 4:30 PM. L-C lost both matchups during the season Vikings while the Spartans have won the last two postseason matchups between them.

 

In three of the last five years the two teams have met in the regional championship game with Luxemburg-Casco winning two out of the three including in 2014 when the Spartans upset Denmark on the road. Denmark was the answer to Thursday's trivia question. The final score in that game was 5-0.

Cassie Schiltz, a senior at Luxemburg-Casco High School, has been selected as one of 32 finalists – 16 senior girls and 16 senior boys – to receive the 2019 WIAA Statewide Scholar Athlete Award of the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association.

 

Chosen from among 823 seniors nominated, the 32 finalists were recognized at an awards ceremony held May 5 in Wausau. Each received a medallion and certificate, along with a plaque for display at their respective schools.

 

Schiltz is the seventh finalist for the WIAA Statewide Scholar Athlete Award from Luxemburg-Casco High School.  She follows: Mary Kay Destiche (1994), Dennis Delebreau (1994), Brad Shefchik (1995), Stephanie Warnke (1996), Ann Gotstein (1998) and Eric Metzler (2005).

 

A 5-11 guard for the L-C girls basketball team, she finished her career as the school’s all-time scoring leader with 1,980 points and was a four-time team Most Valuable Player. Schiltz has committed to play basketball at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay starting next season.

 

Schiltz was a four-time, first-team All-North Eastern Conference selection, and she was chosen as the conference’s Offensive Player of the Year her junior and senior years. Schiltz also was a unanimous pick to the Division 2 first team of the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA), along with fourth-team all-state, as a senior.

 

The daughter of Dan and Mary Schiltz of Luxemburg, she earned four letters in basketball, four in volleyball and one in softball at Luxemburg-Casco.

 

The 32 finalists for Statewide Scholar Athlete were determined by selecting four boys and four girls – based on athletic and academic achievement – from each of four WIAA divisions (Schiltz in Division 2). More than 1,000 Scholar Athlete finalists have been recognized since the program began in 1984.

 

An archived version of the awards ceremony is available at www.wiaawi.org.

 

Schiltz also has been nominated for the girls basketball Player of the Year at the Wisconsin High School Sports Awards, which recognizes and honors the top athletic accomplishments in state high school sports. The event will be held May 8 at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center in Appleton.

Home Again: L-C's Hallet Returns to Alma Mater as LAT

For Luxemburg-Casco native Adam Hallet, returning to L-C High School as a sports medicine professional seemed like an improbable dream.
He and his high school sweetheart wife, the former Sara Streckenbach, were living in Western Wisconsin with the thought of someday getting back to the area to be closer to family. They came back to participate in the Bellin Run — Sara as a runner and Adam as a medical volunteer — and though he wasn’t job searching, Hallet learned Bellin Health was looking to hire a Licensed Athletic Trainer at Peshtigo High School. He applied, landed the job and he and Sara, an ICU nurse, were on their way back — but L-C wasn’t a Bellin school, so Hallet figured that was as close to home as he was likely to get.
That all changed a year later when Bellin began providing L-C’s athletic training services. Again, Hallet, a 2009 L-C grad, applied — and before he knew it the former football player and wrestler was back on the same fields and in the same gyms where he’d competed back in his high school days. 
“The way it’s worked out has been for the absolute best – I love it,” Hallet said. “If you would’ve asked me two years ago, I would’ve said there’s no way — but how everything has worked out, it has been just unreal. It’s been cool.”
Motivated to become an athletic trainer by the AT who helped him when he tore his ACL wrestling as a high school sophomore, Hallet loves his job and relishes the chance to make a difference in the lives of his athletes. He spends his mornings in the clinic setting and mid-afternoons until early evenings (or later evenings on event days) at the high school. 
“It’s just fun – it’s something different every day,” Hallet said. “I really like the event coverage. I’m a big sports fan and I think sports bring out the best in people.”  
Hallet also enjoys serving as a resource for students and families who may struggle to navigate an often-confusing healthcare landscape. And there’s nothing like the feeling of satisfaction when an athlete he’s worked with makes his or her comeback.
“I don’t know if there’s a way to describe it, when you see them return to sport and doing something they enjoy,” he said. “It’s not even the physical aspect of playing the sport, but just mentally, psychologically, returning to the team.”
The Hallets are happy to have returned to their home town, and now they’re looking forward to adding to their own team — Adam and Sara’s first child is due this month. 
“It’s pretty cool,” Hallet said. “I didn’t realize how many people I grew up with stayed here. It just goes to show you how good the community is. We’re happy to be home.”

Luxemburg-Casco track and field headed to Two Rivers

Luxemburg-Casco's track and field teams are headed to Two Rivers Friday night for a meet with nine other teams. Gibraltar, Kewaunee and Sturgeon Bay are the other local teams that will be participating. The Spartans last meet was cut short by rain on Tuesday.

His first season coaching the girls track and field team was 2007. Seering took over the boys program in 2018.

 

Neil Seering was the answer to Thursday's trivia question.
