Washington Island

Washington Island gets rare mainland action

It does not happen often, but Washington Island will get an opportunity to play against one of its fellow teams from the peninsula.

 

Down on the calendar as a scrimmage, the Bucks will help the Algoma Wolves get ready for their regular-season beginning at 6 p.m.  Luxemburg-Casco will travel for a series of scrimmages as well on Monday night, facing NEW Lutheran and host Kohler beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Washington Island cross country running strong

The smallest school in the state has a cross country team similar in stature, but it did not stop them from running hard and having success on the trails.

 

The team competed in three different meets this year, though it did not have enough runners to qualify for the final team scores. Ryan Jorgenson consistently was the Bucks' top runner for the boys, finishing in 87th at the Jim Bremser Invite, 32nd at Algoma, and 25th at Sturgeon Bay. He was able to break the 24-minute mark in all three races for the five-kilometer (3.1 mile) race. Max Johnson and Evan Lux also registered times for the Bucks this season.

 

On the girls side, Julia Valentincic and Tara DeJardin traded positions throughout the season, finishing in the 28-minute to 31-minute range during the three meets for the five-kilometer distance.
