Stewart Larsen Featured In The "Alumni Spotlight"

The Alumni Spotlight focuses on Stewart Larsen from Sturgeon Bay’s high school class of 2004.  Larsen played football, basketball and baseball for the Clippers.    

After high school, Larsen attended the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, where he graduated in December 2008.  He walked-on as a freshman for the Pointers and ended up playing baseball all four years.

Larsen’s favorite high school sports memory is the sectional basketball game his senior year at the Brown County Arena.  Sturgeon Bay lost to Seymour, but Larsen takes a lot of pride away from how the Clippers finished the game.

Ironically, Larsen met up with some of the Seymour Thunder players at his first day on UW-Stevens Point’s campus.

Larsen misses the close-knit family the Clippers basketball team became over the course of his Sturgeon Bay career. He also credits head coach Jim Benesh for instilling a fun, winning atmosphere.

The county rivalries against Sevastopol and Southern Door led to some tough battles with familiar foes for Larsen.

Larsen advises current student athletes that learning to accept your role in high school sports is one of the keys to becoming a more successful player and person on and off the court or field. 

Larsen currently lives in Green Bay with his wife, Kimberly (Sawyer), and their 1-year-old daughter, Margaret.  Kimberly, a Gibraltar High School graduate, played college softball for St. Norbert and was Miss Wisconsin 2012.   Larsen works in sales at Cherney Microbiological Services – a food safe-testing laboratory – in Green Bay.  He still plays basketball in the Green Bay Men’s League and baseball in the Door County League during the summers.
