Sevastopol boys looks to regroup against Oconto

It has been over a week since the Sevastopol lost to NEWCHAA, but the Pioneers hope to return to the court healthy Friday night at home against Oconto.


A sickness that could have dated back to that Saturday loss led to the postponement of a matchup earlier this week. At the same time the Pioneers hope to snap a three-game losing streak overall and grab their first conference victory since January 7th against Algoma. Oconto is 4-4 in the Packerland Conference as they try to snap their only skid in search of its second win in their last five tries.


Tip off is set for 7:30 p.m.

Pioneers breaks conference losing streak against Oconto

The Pioneers outscored the Oconto 36-26 in the second half to win the contest 60-51. It had been since a Valentine's Eve game against Sturgeon in 2015 that the Pioneers won a conference matchup. The Pioneers made life difficult for the Blue Devils defensively, holding them to under 28 percent shooting for the game. The Blue Devils did not do much to help their cause from the charity stripe either, making on 19 of its 33 attempts.

Sevastopol record board needs your help

Depending on your memory, you can help update the Sevastopol girls' track record board.


The Sevastopol School District will be posting a new hallway display case in the near future, but it is asking for help when it comes to the years the records were broken. You can contact the school if you have any information on these record holders. One is easy though, Zoe Kuehn broke the mark for the triple-jump this spring, You can read more about that experience when it happened here.



Sevastopol boys dropped by Peshtigo

In just the second game of the season for the Sevastopol High School boys basketball team, the offense still failed to click Tuesday night against Peshtigo. Sevastopol fell to 0-2, losing 61-50 to the Bulldogs. Last year’s squad saw a similarly slow start with the offense coming to life after Christmas. Before the holiday in 2018, Sevastopol scored under 40 points in three of their first six games. That happened once in their last 14. 

If this year’s team stays true to form, they should be rounding into shape come the Lena Invitational. Before then, the Pioneers play NEW Christian Home School Thursday and are at Southern Door next week.


Sevastopol girls still looking for first win

The Sevastopol High School girls basketball team fell Friday at Peshtigo, 54-34. They are still looking for the first win of the 2019-20 season. The Pioneers have a great chance to change that coming up Thursday when they host NE Wisconsin Christian Home School. The NEWHC Athletic Association fields teams in track and field, volleyball, cross country, and basketball from fifth grade and up. They do not play a regular schedule though. The game, set for Thursday, will be Christian Home School’s first contest of the season.

Pollman provides offense in Pioneers loss

Sevastopol's Robby Pollman was the only Pioneer who could solve the Oconto Blue Devils' defense in its 77-57 loss Thursday night.


Pollman scored 23 of the Pioneers' 57 points while only three other players scored more than seven points on the evening. Neither team could truly take advantage of charity stripe with the Pioneers going 9 for 20 from the line and the Blue Devils knocking in 19 of its 32 attempts. 


The Pioneers return home on Tuesday to face Peshtigo.

More offense, same result for Sevastopol girls

After putting up just 18 points in their opening game, the Sevastopol High School girls basketball team notched a respectable 36 at home against Oconto Tuesday night. Unfortunately, the result was the same in both games as the Blue Devils edged the Pioneers, 43-36. Oconto shot a scorching 19-32 from the field led by Hannah Moe with 13 points as Jenna Hornblad tallied 19. 

Oconto improves to 1-0 in Packerland Conference play with Sevastopol sitting at 0-1. The Pioneers next game is on the road at Peshtigo on Friday. The Pioneers wrap up the 2019 portion of their schedule with three games in five days beginning on December 12th.


Sevastopol girls lose opener

The Sevastopol High School girls basketball team finished last in the Packerland Conference in 2018-19, and the opening contest of this season suggests it could be another long season on Highway 57. The Pioneers lost to Two Rivers, 41-18, Saturday afternoon. 

Thirty-six games were played across the state on Saturday and Sevastopol's 18 ties for the lowest point total of any team on the court in all those contests. Going 5-18 last year and winless in conference, Sevastopol never scored fewer than 24 points. The Pioneers averaged 43 per game last season. The offense will have to improve rapidly for Sevastopol. Their next game is home against Oconto on Tuesday night. The Blue Devils are winless, falling to Wabeno/Laona and Coleman.

Young Sevastopol team looking towards 2020

Only one senior suited up for the Sevastopol football team in their final game against Wabeno/Laona on Friday. The Pioneers lost that game 54-14 which was broadcasted on 104.1 WRLU and Arthur Hocevar was the lone senior on the field as the other two, Caden Kacmarynski and Triston Beauchamp, were both hurt. With the lack of experience, Sevastopol was not able to repeat the success of 2018 when they won a state championship. Head Coach Ron Frank talks about what those three seniors have meant to the Pioneer football program.



Sevastopol started a number of sophomores the whole season and improved throughout the season. The Pioneers lost their first four games before a three-game winning streak in the middle of the season. They lost their final two contests against co-conference champion Gibraltar and another really good team in Wabeno/Laona. Coach Frank has already talked with his assistants about their plans for next season which should be an improvement on the 2019 campaign.



Sevastopol drops homecoming game on 104.1 WRLU

The Sevastopol football team played hard in front of a big homecoming crowd on Friday night against Wabeno-Laona but couldn't come up with a victory in the final game of the season. The Rebels knocked off Sevastopol 54-14 ending the Pioneers state title defense. Sevastopol's defense had a hard time stopping the dynamic running duo of Ethan Westimayer and Connor Taylor for Wabeno/Laona. They both scored four touchdowns with two of Taylor's coming on kickoff returns.


The Pioneers had a couple of big plays of their own on offense. Logan Beyer caught a 67 yard touchdown pass from Jack DeYoung who was in the game replacing the injured Triston Beauchamp. Spencer Evenson had a 35 yard touchdown run in the second half. He finished with 25 carries for 142 yards and reached the 1,000 yard mark on the season.


Sevastopol emptied the playbook for the final game of the season and they all ended in interceptions. A flea flicker in the first half was picked off. Both of Spencer Evenson's passes were intercepted in the game including a jump pass attempt down near the goal line.


Sevastopol only lined up with three seniors on the squad this season and they were all honored at halftime along with other accomplished Sevastopol senior athletes. Only one of those three suited up in the final game and that was Arthur Hocevar. Triston Beauchamp and Caden Kacmarynski were both out with injuries. 


Sevastopol Head Coach Ron Frank said in the postgame show on 104.1 WRLU that he expected his team to have growing pains this season after losing so much off of last year's state championship team. But with the Pioneers only losing three players off the team, the 2020 campaign could be a strong one.
