Sturgeon Bay High School

Door County Classic lives up to name

Over 20 teams from across the state and upper Michigan will converge on Sturgeon Bay this Saturday for the 13th Dirk Sorenson Door County Classic.

 

Freedom, Milwaukee Marshall, Two Rivers, Valders, Wrightstown are just some of the teams coming into Sturgeon Bay for the tournament, with some of the best wrestlers in the state in tow. Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol head coach Trevor Hasenjager says it is a nice tune-up for teams before WIAA regional tournament takes place two weeks later.

 

 

The Dirk Sorenson Door County Classic begins with weigh-ins at 6 a.m. Saturday.

Sturgeon Bay boys tied for first place

The Sturgeon Bay High School boys basketball team roared out of the gate in front of the home crowd Friday night. The Clippers put up 39 in the first half, on their way to a 74-59 victory over the Kewaunee Storm. Kewaunee had already played a road contest at another top tier Packerland team, Southern Door, earlier in the week. That was a one-point nail biter that may have led to a slow start. It is a potential reason why the defensive intensity just was not there for the Storm at the bell.


Sturgeon Bay was balanced offensively scoring 13 two-point baskets and 11 three-pointers. Jake Schneider had 22 and Gunner Tebon chipped in another 20 points. For Kewaunee, three players made it to double figures. Alex Rohr led the way with 15 points. 


Sturgeon Bay is on the road their next two games. Tuesday, they play at NEW Lutheran in Green Bay. Kewaunee heads home to renew a rivalry with Algoma.

 


Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol sweeps duals

On Parent's Night, the Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol wrestling team were able to capture victories in their first and in their last home duals of the season.

 

Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol opened up their evening with a 42-0 win over Oconto with Kellen Hacht and Nick West earning pins in the only contested matches of the dual. The team honored all of the wrestlers but gave special recognition to David Condra, the team's only senior. 

 

 

In the second set of duals, Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol beat Peshtigo 30-24, but lost two of their three contested matches. Katelyn Lewis and  Klimek picked up pins for the visiting Bulldogs. Hacht picked up the lone victory with a second period pin. Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol will wrestle next at their own tournament on February 1st.

Sturgeon Bay boys win to set up showdown

The Sturgeon Bay High School boys basketball team shot over 50 percent from the field and sailed to a win against Gibraltar Tuesday night, 71-44. The Clippers’ unselfish play continues with four players scoring in double digits and another adding eight. Jake Schneider had a game-high 17. Gibraltar wasn’t too shabby from the floor themselves at 47 percent. Guard Luke Steebs led the way with 16 points. 


Sturgeon Bay has one loss in the conference, and that is to the team they will face on Friday night. Sturgeon Bay-Kewaunee should be a dandy and you can bet the gym on Michigan Street will be hopping. Gibraltar’s next contest finds them at Algoma Friday.

 


Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol wrestling looks for growth spurt

Struggling to fill full roster now, Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol head wrestling coach Trevor Hasenjager likes what he is seeing from his younger wrestlers. Two weeks ago the Clippineers won the majority of the contested match in an overall dual meet loss to Southern Door due to forfeits. Ahead of that dual, the gym was packed with parents watching well over 20 matches at the middle school level. Hasenjager says he likes what he has seen so far.


Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol hosts Southern Door, Peshtigo, and Oconto for a double dual this Thursday night at 7 p.m. 104.1 WRLU will carry the Eagles matches live but will cut away with updates from the pair of Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol matches.

Smooth sailing Friday for Clipper boys

The Sturgeon Bay High School boys basketball team put up a season-high 88 points Friday at Algoma in an easy victory. Four Clipper players scored at least 15 making the game Sturgeon Bay’s most balanced effort of the 2019-2020 campaign. Jake Schneider led all scorers with 21 points. Sturgeon Bay connected on 12 three-point attempts. 


Algoma got their first win of the season earlier this week but it was back to business as usual against one of the Packerland’s best teams. Carter Zimmerman led the Wolves with 14 points.

 
Sturgeon Bay is back on the court tonight in a nonconference matchup against Seymour. The Thunder have roared to an 11-0 start this year. Their average margin of victory in conference games is 30 points. The Thunder routinely put up 80 so Sturgeon Bay will need to limit turnovers, keep Seymour from running in transition, and force them to score out of their half-court offense. The game was originally scheduled for Tuesday. 


Algoma matches up with the Northeast Wisconsin Christian Home School squad Monday.

 


Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol places two at New London

Ben Denamur took seventh and Nick West took sixth to lead Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol to a 15th place finish at the New London Cutler Classic on Saturday. 


Each wrestler grabbed one contested victory with byes helping with their final placement. On the JV side of the tournament Kellen Hacht (138) and Ben Roman (285) went a perfect 3-0 to win their brackets.

Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol excited for Denamur's return

On a young wrestling team like Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol, it is always great to have some experience in the room. The team got just that this year when junior Ben Denamur returned to the mat a few weeks ago after injuries eliminated his sophomore campaign. Denamur already has three tournaments under his belt with the high water mark being a fourth-place finish at the Brillion Invitational a few weeks ago. Head coach Trevor Hasenjager says it is great seeing Denamur back.

Denamur and the Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol wrestling team will follow the likes of Kewaunee and Southern Door to Oshkosh this weekend for the Lourdes Academy’s On The Water Invitational.

Sturgeon Bay girls lose tight game at Peshtigo

The Sturgeon Bay High School girls basketball team did what it had to do on the defensive end to keep the game close Tuesday night against Peshtigo. The stingy Clippers defense allowed only 45 points to the Bulldogs but it was not enough as they could only mount 39 of their own on the offensive end of the court. Sarah Bridenhagen led all scorers with 17 points but did not have enough help from her supporting cast to squeeze out the victory. Sturgeon Bay takes the court again Friday against Sevastopol.

Sturgeon Bay girls pick up another victory

The Sturgeon Bay girls basketball team cooled off the Oconto Blue Devils Friday night, allowing a scant 11 points before halftime. Sturgeon Bay ended up carrying the game, 48-33. The Clippers held Oconto to 10 of 40 shooting. Oconto did themselves no favors from the charity stripe as sometimes the physical Clipper defense got too rough. The Blue Devils had 24 free throws in the game but left a lot of points on the table by making 10 of those.


Greta Meleen led the way with 16 points for the Clippers. Sturgeon Bay has almost matched their win total from last season already. Games against the likes of Sevastopol and Chilton look very winnable. This campaign could outdo 2018-2019 before the end of the month.

Sturgeon Bay boys consistent in win

The Sturgeon Bay High School boys basketball team sailed past Oconto Friday 76-53. It was a dynamic, yet consistent, effort from the Clippers. They netted 38 points in each half. Meanwhile, Sturgeon Bay was tenacious defensively early on, yielding only 23 points at the break. The Clippers were paced by a two-pronged attack from Jake Schneider and Gunnar Tebon. Tebon had 23 points while Schneider collected 21.


Sturgeon Bay dropped its opener against Kewaunee but has rolled since with convincing wins over NEW Lutheran and the Blue Devils. They return to the court as part of the Steve Randall Shootout in Oshkosh on Saturday the 21st.

 

Sturgeon Bay girls lose to Green Bay West

Sturgeon Bay has shown impressive team defense this season. The Clippers have held four teams to under 50 points. In those games, the Clippers are 2-2. When Sturgeon Bay allows over 50, they have yet to be victorious

Youth basketball takes over Sturgeon Bay Saturday

The Northeast Wisconsin Boys Basketball League will be in Sturgeon Bay this Saturday to help support organized youth basketball.  The program has 43 schools from Northeastern Wisconsin participating and helps promote sportsmanship through competitive play.  John Lodl, one of the local organizers, says proceeds from the one-day basketball event helps support Sturgeon Bay boys youth basketball.  He says it’s an opportunity for people to watch some good hoops by teams from third-grade through 12th grade.

 

 

Teams are guaranteed two games that run from 8 am until about 5 pm with games played simultaneously in the high school and middle school gyms. Lodl adds that the organized basketball event that averages between 12 and 20 teams every year has raised over $3,000 for the Sturgeon Bay basketball programs.

Local volleyball players sign NLI's

Two local volleyball players will continue to play the sport they love at the next level.

 

Sturgeon Bay volleyball standout Hailey DeGrave made it official Thursday when she signed her National Letter of Intent to play at Lakeland University. DeGrave is coming off a senior season where she earned second-team All-Packerland Conference honors as an all-around player. There is still plenty to go in DeGrave's high school career, who has competed in basketball and track in the past.

 

Heading a little further from home is Algoma senior setter Jacklyn Dean, who will play next year at Iowa Lakes Community College. Dean is coming off her third straight all-conference season and finished her high school career with over 1,400 assists.
