Ice Fishing Season Coming To An Arupt End


By Tim Kowols




Area ice anglers are finding that their season is quickly coming to a close. Recent warm temperatures, strong winds and rain have taken its toll out on the ice, even on smaller bodies of water in Little Sturgeon and Sawyer Harbor. Ice fishing guide JJ Malvitz says while some anglers have found it hard to drop their pole, you have to take the proper precautions.



 

Even with open water season weeks away, Malvitz says some anglers have turned their attention to Algoma in search of brown trout. You can listen to the full ice fishing report online with this story.

Southern Door Eliminated While Kewaunee Moves On


By Nick Freimuth




Only one Door or Kewaunee County high school girls basketball team will be competing in the sectional tournament Thursday. The Kewaunee Storm won a regional championship last night with an impressive 53-41 win over #2 Valders. The Storm won the crown on the road in a hostile environment as the #3 seed. They were again led by the incredible mother and daughter duo of Coach Lynn Geier and team Captain Brooke Geier. Kewaunee will travel to Manitowoc Lincoln Thursday night for a 7:00 PM tip-off with #1 seed Wrightstown.

 

The Wrightstown Tigers had a 17 point lead on Southern Door last night, only to see the Eagles come soaring back to tie the game in the second half. Megan Pavlik scored 17 to lead the come comeback but Wrightstown did just enough to hold onto victory 59-53 to win a regional championship. Grace LeGrave scored 11 points, Gabby Atkins notched 10 and Megan LaCrosse added eight points in the loss.

 

Brandon Wautier after his final game as Eagles Varsity Coach said, "We played against a great team with a lot of girls who could score from anywhere on the court. I am super proud of the way our girls battled back from down 17 to tie the game. We came up just short but it was a successful season and we have a lot to be proud of."

Southern Door Take Conference Championship By One Game Over Sturgeon Bay


By Nick Freimuth




The Southern Door Eagles ended the 2016-2017 Packerland Conference schedule with an exclamation mark. A 76-42 win over Sevastopol ensured the conference crown for the third year in a row. That is something no varsity boys basketball team has done in the history of the school.

 

Nick LeCaptain scored 27 points in the win over the Pioneers including seven three-point field goals. Sam Gerend poured in five more three's en route to 19 points for the Eagles.

 

Southern Door ends the regular season (13-1) in conference play and (19-3) overall. Coach Derik Hawkey said after the game, "I couldn't be any more proud of these guys. All year we did things together as a family. The self-belief this team has in one another was more than I could have ever hoped for. Not only were they tremendous for me on the floor, but off of the court I did not have one single issue all year with any members of the team. That makes me more proud than winning the title. There's something to be said for doing things the right way and these kids lived up to everything I demanded from them both on and off the court. Great parents, great fans, great support and advice from past and present members of Southern Door High School and most importantly great young men to coach. All of these things added up in the end to a season I could only dream of. Not only did I witness our very young team continually grow throughout the year but I grew as well. I look forward to switching our focus and mindset on the "2nd Season" this year!"

 

The Eagles earned a #3 seed in the regional tournament and will host #14 Kewaunee next Tuesday to open up tournament play.

Greek Freak Impresses In NBA All-Star Game


By Nick Freimuth




The Milwaukee Bucks have not had a player in the NBA All-Star Game since Michael Redd. Giannis Antetokounmpo made up for lost time and impressed the rest of the league with his length, athleticism and highlight reel dunks. Antetokounmpo and the East All-Stars fell 192-182 to the West All-Stars.

 

The Greek Freak scored an impressive 30 points in the loss. His efforts were bested by the game's MVP Anthony Davis. Playing on his home court, the New Orleans Pelicans big man scored a record 52 points. The previous record of 43 points was held by Wilt Chamberlin since 1962.

UWGB Women Drop One on the Road in Milwaukee


By Brady Haupt




The UWGB women misfired on a chance keep pace with Wright State within the Horizon League Conference with a loss to in-state rival Milwaukee 72-60 on Friday night. The Phoenix now stand at 12-3 in the conference, two games back of Wright State and their 14-1 conference record. There is still hope for the Phoenix to win the conference title outright with three games remaining on each team's schedule, including a head-to-head matchup next Friday. UWGB gave Wright State their lone conference loss of the season in December.

Milwaukee Bucks Giannis Antetokounmpo Set To Make First All-Star Appearance This All-Star Weekend


By Brady Haupt




The Milwaukee Bucks are off for a couple of day but Giannis Antetokounmpo is working for the weekend. Antetokounmpo is enjoying his first All-Start Game appearance with All-Start Weekend kicking off last night in New Orleans.  While Antetokounmpo, who is averaging more than 23 points per contest won't be participating in any of the weekend's extra-curricular activities such as the dunk contest or skills competition, he did get the starting nod thanks to the NBA's All-Star vote. The All-Start Game is Sunday night at 7:00pm.

Brewers 2016 Rookie Sensation Jonathan Villar Making the Move to Second Base


By Brady Haupt




After spending his rookie year as a shortstop Jonathan Villar of the Milwaukee Brewers will be trying on a new hat, so to speak. Brewers Manager Craig Counsell announced that his young stud would switch positions as the Brewers hit the spring training field on Friday. Offseason acquisitions necessitated the move. Villar led the Major Leagues last year with 62 stolen bases, also batting .285 with 19 homers and 63 RBIs.

Eagles Boys Basketball Accomplishes School's First Ever Three-Peat


By Nick Freimuth




The Southern Door Varsity Boys Basketball program accomplished something never before done in the history of the school. The Eagles guaranteed at least a share of the Packerland Conference title for the third year in a row by defeating Sturgeon Bay 59-42 at Eagle Gym. The game was broadcast live on 104.1 FM WRLU.

 

"A Three-Peat is something we talked about as one of our team goals before the season started," according to Coach Derik Hawkey. The Eagles were down 17-12 early in the first half then erupted and never looked back. Southern Door led 31-25 at the half and kept the margin at double digits for a large share of the second half.

 

Sam Gerend scored 10 points, Kyle Daoust added 12 and the LeCaptain Brothers combined for 32 in the Eagles win (Derik (13) Nick (19)). Ironically, exactly ten years to the date of Derik Hawkey scoring his 1,000th point the Eagles secured the  school's first ever back-to-back-to-back conference championship.

 

Sturgeon Bay was led by Mitchel Jackson despite heavy foul trouble in the second half with 12 points. Connor Gajda scored nine points and Jared Van Bramer tallied eight points in the loss.

 

Regional tournament seeding will be announced Sunday. The Eagles hope to be a top-two seed whereas the  Clippers may have fallen to a three, four, five or six seed with the defeat Friday night.

 

At halftime of the varsity game the two newest members of the Southern Door Athletic Hall of Fame were enshrined. Pete Birmingham and Greg Klaubauf joined 36 others into this prestigious fraternity.

Kewaunee Captures Conference Crown In 45-30 Win Over Algoma On 104.1 WRLU


By Tim Kowols




The Kewaunee Storm won their first outright conference title in 25 years when it took the second edition of the War on the Shore against rival Algoma Wolves 45-30 on 104.1 WRLU. The game was closely contested in the first half thanks in part to good shooting from behind the arc for the Wolves, led by Mikayla Haack (10 points) and Alli Spitzer (8 points). Thanks to changes to an already stingy defense and strong performances by senior Brooke Geier (17 points) and Sara Dax (14 points), the Storm were able to increase their lead throughout the second half to capture their first conference crown since they shared one with Algoma during their 2013 state championship run. The Storm will host New Holstein and the Wolves will play Weyauwega-Fremont at home next week when the WIAA regionals begin.

 

The Kewaunee PR Committee was able to collect 975 items during the 6th annual Mitten Toss with all donations going to Warm Hands, Warm Hearts.

By Tim Kowols




The sixth annual mitten toss will be the halftime entertainment for what should be another exciting matchup in the "War on the Shore" between the Algoma Wolves and the host Kewaunee Storm.

 

The Algoma Wolves are in unfamiliar territory this season with a record below .500 and a #7 seed when the WIAA regionals begin next week. The Wolves are playing some of their best basketball right now, however, winning four of their last five. Their last game was rout over Oconto 60-33, led by Ali Spitzer's 19 points.

 

The Kewaunee Storm continues to jockey for the top spot in the Packerland Conference, boasting a 12-1 record and a one-game advantage over Southern Door. The Storm has also won four of their last five, highlighted by a 74-33 win over Green Bay NEW Lutheran on Monday night.

 

Fans in attendance are encouraged to bring hats, mittens, scarves, and other winter apparel for tonight's mitten toss, which will be thrown out onto the court during halftime. Now in its sixth year, the Kewaunee PR Committee will collect items and donate them to Warm Hands Warm Hearts. You can listen to Brady Haupt and Tim Kowols on the call beginning at 7:00 p.m. with the pregame show followed by the game at 7:30.

Gibraltar Girls Pull Off Huge Upset With Win Over Southern Door


By Nick Freimuth




Last night on 105.1 FM  the Gibraltar girls basketball team held the lead most of the game and kept it in a big win over Southern Door. The  Vikings did Kewaunee a big favor and likely secured the Packerland Conference championship outright for the Storm. Prior to Monday night's game Southern Door were tied at (11-1). Each team has one game left so it is not official but Kewaunee has guaranteed themselves at least a share of that crown after last night's Gibraltar win and the Storm's easy victory over N.E.W. Lutheran.

 

Riley Haleen scored 18 points to lead Gibraltar. Raina Haleen also had a great game with 12 points for the Vikings. Megan Pavlik led all scorers with 20 points including an impressive second half for Southern Door.

Disc Golf Courses Head To Full Board In Egg Harbor, Baileys Harbor


By Tim Kowols




Disc golf courses are one step closer to becoming a reality in two communities. The Baileys Harbor Plan Commission and the Egg Harbor Parks and Public Works Committee gave their initial support to installing disc golf courses, sending it to their full boards for final approval. After knocking down potential knowledge barriers about the sport, Julie's Park Café and Motel owner and Door Disc Golf founder Shane Solomon says much of the discussion is now centered on funding the courses.

 



 

Solomon says it is his goal to privately finance the courses through the group's GoFundMe page so it does not put stress on the tax base. The village of Sister Bay will begin installing its own disc golf course as soon as the ground thaws.

Malvitz says perch, walleyes, and whitefish are all biting well depending on the location and depth of water you are fishing. You can get the full fishing report online with this story.

Woes Continue In Denver For Bucks, Fall 121-117 To Nuggets


By Tim Kowols




The Milwaukee Bucks' losing streak hit five Friday night as they fell to the Denver Nuggets 121-117 in the Mile High City.  The Bucks could not solve Nuggets center Nikola Jokic, who recorded his first career triple-double (20 points, 13 rebounds, 11 assists) while also leading the team in scoring. Giannis Antetokounmpo almost registered his own triple-double (23 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists) while being paced in the scoring column by Jabari Parker's 27 points. It was two late turnovers by the young Bucks stars that erased any hope of completing their 22-point comeback and made it 10 losses in their last 11 games.

 

The Bucks will have no time to rest as they head from the mountains to the desert to face the Phoenix Suns tonight. Tip is at 8 p.m.
