Sturgeon Bay Soccer Loses Regular Season Finale

By Nick Freimuth

Green Bay East topped Sturgeon Bay 1-0 on a lat goal by Andrea Alonso. Clippers keeper Rebecca Osborne kept a clean sheet until the 86th minute, giving the visiting squad the win.


Clippers Coach Bob Desotelle said, "This is probably a game we should have won. We out possessed Green Bay East. We had more shots on goal and had quality attacks. However, we did not finish. It was a frustrating loss. We played well enough to win. Next, our first regional game against Sheboygan County Christian on Thursday, 5:00 kick off."

Algoma Softball lost a close one to Oshkosh Lourdes 5-3 Tuesday in Division 4.  Wolves Coach Amber Schubert said, "I feel like with the blink of an eye, the 2017 softball season has passed by. Words can't express how proud we (my coaching staff and I) are of the girls. They are a respectful and hard-working group of kids; really they are everything a coach could ask for. Thank you for an amazing season and creating great memories."


Algoma did not have a single senior on this year's team. They will be a force to be reckoned with next year.

Sevastopol Baseball Pulls Off Biggest Upset Of Regional Semi-Finals

By Nick Freimuth

Watch out for the Sevastopol Varsity Baseball team. In a rare #4 over #1 seed upset, the Pioneers topped Gresham 12-7 Tuesday. The Division 4 regional final is set for this afternoon between N.E.W. Lutheran and Sevastopol in Green Bay.


Coach Jason Marggraf said, "I think this is really a preview of things to come for this team.  We pounded the heck out of the ball.  The bottom of the line up was absolutely clutch, stringing hits together when it counted.  Our seven hitter, Nathan Stenzel, was five for five.  It was awesome watching this line up play up to its potential.  Brent came on in relief and was nails, and the defense played a very mature game behind him."


Ethan Kroll added four hits in the win. Jacob Pflieger also had a multi-hit performance Tuesday afternoon.  Brent Haberli accounted for 3 RBI and Zach Christiansen added two.

Sevastopol's Max McHugh Commits To University Of Minnesota

By Nick Freimuth

Door County has another Division 1 scholarship student athlete. The University of Minnesota is fast becoming "Sevastopol West." Max McHugh, a junior at Sevastopol verbally committed and will attend U of M on scholarship to join the swim team and specialize in the breast stroke. Max's role model, his older brother Conner, will be a senior next year and will likely stay at Minnesota to train for the 2020 Olympics.


While the brothers will not officially get to compete with each other for the Gophers, they will get to train with each other as they did their entire childhood at the Sturgeon Bay YMCA.


Arizona State and Texas were the other top schools Max was deciding between. Texas won the NCAA Championships each of the last three years. Arizona State boasts new assistant coach Michael Phelps. Each were attractive offers, however Max said location and family were key.


Max has accomplished just about everything a high school junior could ever hope to accomplish. He is a national champion, has shattered national record times and now has his senior year of high school to focus on improving instead of the stressful college decision.


Mike and Mary Claire McHugh will have a much easier travel schedule to see both of their children throughout the next five years. Max first mentioned his mom and dad and then his brother as people atop the thank you list. To listen to the entire interview with Max about his decision click on the audio link below:

Door County Baseball League Wrap-Up

By Tim Kowols

The Door County Baseball League's three undefeated teams remained so thanks in part to timely hitting and Mother Nature.


Wet field conditions prevented the undefeated showdown between Kolberg and Sister Bay from getting underway, while West Jacksonport needed two runs in the bottom of the 8th to get past Egg Harbor 2-1. Washington Island got into the win column for the first time on the young season, squeaking past visiting Maplewood 4-3. Baileys Harbor broke their year-plus losing streaking, blowing past Institute 9-1.

Brewers Slam D-Backs 9-5 For Series Split

By Tim Kowols

A fourth-inning grand slam by Domingo Santana propelled the Milwaukee Brewers to a 9-5 win and a series split over the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Brewers continued their hot hitting in the first inning of ballgames by plating two runs on RBIs by Hernan Perez and Manny Pina. Santana delivered the big blow of the game in the fourth inning after the Diamondbacks' Chris Ianetta doubled home a run. The Brewers would extend their lead to 8-1 before the Diamondbacks batted around in the 8th inning, scoring four runs. Travis Shaw's ground-rule double in the bottom half of the inning gave the Brewers a wanted, but ultimately unneeded insurance run.


The Brewers will board a plane and head to Queens for a series against the New York Mets. First pitch is set for 6:10 p.m.

Anderson Takes No-Hit Bid To Eighth Inning As Brewers Down D-Backs 6-1

By Tim Kowols

Pitcher Chase Anderson found his groove again Saturday afternoon at Miller Park as he took a no-hitter into the eighth inning and helped the Milwaukee Brewers snap a five-game skid with a 6-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks. It was a pitcher's duel between Anderson and former Brewer Zach Greinke until catcher Jett Brandy cleared the bases with a three-run double in the fourth inning. The Brewers would take on additional runs in the sixth and seventh innings thanks to a Jesus Aguilar home run and a pair of RBI singles by Domingo Santana and Eric Sogard. Anderson was lifted in the eighth after Nick Ahmed opened the stanza with a base hit. Paul Goldschmidt registered the lone RBI for the Diamondbacks with a single in the ninth. The Brewers look for a series split this afternoon at Miller Park with the first pitch coming at 1:10 p.m.

Door County: Kayaking and Kayak Fishing Wonderland!

By Bill Schultz

With more than 300 miles of shoreline and unmatched beauty on both the Green Bay and Lake Michigan sides of Door County, what a wonderful location for recreational kayaking and kayak fishing.  If you've never paddled the crystal-clear waters and seen the bluffs, beaches, lighthouses, villages and an amazing bird population, you're in for a treat.


For all kayakers, there are dozens of great launches up and down both sides of the peninsula that will get you out to all the best spots, although, there isn't a bad place to kayak in Door County.  One thing that I must stress with some recent kayak accidents is safety.  It may be a nice warm day, but, at this time of year water temps on the lake side will be in the upper 40-degree range and in the 50-degree range on Green Bay.  Be sure to wear your PFD, be aware of the weather conditions, go with someone if possible, and try to let someone know where you are going and when you expect to return.  Staying closer to shore and making sure you have your cell phone and it's protected in a waterproof bag or container is important.  If you are new to kayaking, there are several good outfitters in the county who will be happy to introduce you to the sport.


To all you kayak anglers, this is the best time of the year to catch and release those big Door County Smallmouth Bass.  In May and June, you will find many nice smallies close to shore in two to eight feet of water.  The Green Bay side tends to be better, with more fish, but, there are smallies up and down the lake side also.  A great presentation this time of year is the Kalin's Lunker Grub.  These and the Gopher Tackle Big Johns jigs I use can be found at Howie's Tackle in Sturgeon Bay.  My favorite are the 4" and 5" Smoke Salt and Pepper.  Threaded on the Gopher Tackle jig, you cast as far as you can and retrieve slow and steady.  Give it a try, you'll may be surprised.


Over the next few months, I will be touching on a variety of kayak and kayak fishing themes, including, picking the right kayak and paddles, rigging your kayak, some favorite locations to kayak and fish, best launches and more.


As always, if you have questions, you can email me at  Pro Staffs:  Jackson Kayak, Bending Branches/Aqua-Bound Paddles, Orion Coolers, St. Croix Rods, Kalin's and Malone Auto Racks.

Jeffrey Alberts Wins Packerland Conference Player Of The Year

By Nick Freimuth

The 2017 Packerland Conference Baseball Player of the Year may be one of the most well rounded selections the conference has ever made. Jeffrey Alberts had an incredible 2017 regular season, but is twice the young man off the field. Coaches saw the (6-1) record on the mound. Alberts threw for an incredible 1.028 ERA this season. All while maxing out at 70 MPH.


He has earned the nickname "Greg Maddux of the Packerland Conference." Alberts is not know for his overwhelming repertoire or speed on the hill, instead his pinpoint accuracy. Painting the outside corner became his forte during his senior campaign. He helped Sturgeon Bay win an outright Packerland Conference championship by throwing a complete game shutout of rival Southern Door last week. He held Oconto to one run the week prior including 15 first pitch strikes in seven innings.


He batted in the three-hole for most of the season and finished with a .289 batting average. Alberts admitted he was never a guy that was going to hit one out of the park but could make solid contact. In short, he did all the little things well on the mound, at the plate and on the base paths.


Alberts was a true student of the game. Regardless of the season, Alberts was all in watching wide receiver routes, timing his delivery to the plate or comparing his stat line to some of the great pitchers in Major league Baseball.




Jeffrey will be attending the University of Madison in the fall. He graduates Sturgeon Bay with a 4.058 GPA and regardless of his major (A direct admit into the Madison School of Business) Alberts will be great at it. Alberts is known for his electric smile, confidence and infectious character. A true team captain in every sense of the term, Alberts will lace it up next Tuesday in a regional semi-final against the winner of Valders and Chilton. It is unknown if he will pitch or be saved for Luxemburg-Casco the following night in the regional final. Sturgeon Bay got caught trying to save their ace (Alberts) last year and lost their regional opener one year ago. Alberts said he would like to throw in the opening game of the tournament.


Alberts was a three-sport athlete through his junior year. He elected to focus on the Packerland Conference champion Math Team his senior year for his "winter sport." In football Alberts was voted all-conference defensive back his junior and senior seasons. He was also second team all-conference pitcher last year.


It is rare that a play-by-play announcer admires a young man's work off the field more than his on-field successes. In this case, I cannot stop thinking about all the smiles Alberts evoked from teammates, coaches, radio personalities and opponents. This young man is a rare talent and one that I will certainly miss covering as the Class of 2018 trots on to the field next year.

Dave Bouche, Randy LeMieux Jr. & Scott Boulanger Victorious In Hill Return

By Edward Anschutz

Racing has officially returned to the Hill with 21 Stock Cars, 23 Sport Mods and 24 Street Stocks. 4-Time Stock Car Champion Dave Bouche led all 18 laps en route to another feature win at The Hill. Other feature winners were Randy LeMieux Jr.-Sport Mod, Scott Boulanger-Street Stock and Tory Peterson-Baby Bomber. PKS3 thanks all the fans, drivers and crews for coming out and making opening night a success.


Draw Redraw put the defending Stock Car Track Champion Dave Bouche on the pole for the 18 lap main event. Dave set the pace pulling away from Tony Bouche in the early going. A lone caution on lap 7 bunched the field. On the restart Tony and Trent Nolan ran on the bumper of Dave but as the race progressed, Dave found his groove and pulled away to a convincing win. Tony was second with Nolan third, Jamie Suchocki and Larry Karz completed the top five.


Dennis Miesler paced the opening laps of the Sport Mod feature until Luxemburg champ Randy LeMieux Jr. slid by for the top spot on lap 4. Jared Siefert made his return to the open wheel class borrowing Brandon Kaye's racer. Siefert secured second with a handful of laps remaining but it wasn't enough as LeMieux led the rest of the way to the checkers. Siefert was the runner-up, Miesler took third, Tom Stark took fourth and Sawyer Haese rounded out the top 5. Luxemburg Speedway promoter Eric Mahlik strapped himself into John Hill's Street Stock for the first time. Mahlik made a daring 3-wide pass on the opening lap of the feature to take the lead. Scott Boulanger sped through the field, closing in on Mahlik as the laps clicked by. Mahlik hit heavy lap traffic allowing Boulanger to make his move, slicing by Mahlik on the white flag lap. Boulanger led the final circuit on his way to victory lane. Mahlik had to settle for second, Dave DeGrave was third, Clint Evans was fourth and Aaron Thornton battled from 18th to place fifth.


Despite there being only 3 Baby Bombers on hand it may have been the race of the night. DJ Jorgeson was checked out and had the win in hand but his car broke a front axle ending his chances. This handed the lead over to Tory Peterson as Alex Van Boxel gave chase. Van Boxel looked inside Peterson as they entered turn 3 and heavy contact was made, sending Peterson rolling. Van Boxel was excused for the incident and the win went to Peterson.


The next night of racing will take place on Sunday June 11 with a 2pm start time.

Clippers Soccer Team Falls To New Holstein

By Bob Desotelle

Sturgeon Bay girls soccer lost to New Holstein 3-1 Thursday afternoon. The Huskies scored in the 44th minute (Kayla Gruelig) to lead 1-0 at Half. Julia Danes made it 2-0 before Sturgeon Bay's Charlie Pollock made it 2-1. A late score New Holstein's Hannah Krupp finished the scoring 3-1.


Clippers Coach Bob Desotelle said, "We played a talented team and kept this one close. Although we had several 1v1's on their keeper, we came up short on the score. Charlie Pollocks score was a beautiful back post drive the keeper never had a play on. All three of NH's scores were quality shots. They have a potent offense. While our defense played well, NH needed only small miscues to score. Sophomore Ella Pinkert got her first start of the year and had an outstanding game as a mid fielder and classmate Caitlyn Smith provided some quality minutes too. We next play Sevastopol/Gilbraltar at home Monday at 4:30."

Garza posted his most impressive outing since last fall, pitching 7-innings of one run ball without even throwing 90 pitches. That one run was given up on a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning to tie the game after the Brewers' Orlando Arcia took Pirates star pitcher Gerit Cole in the previous half-frame. It was Josh Harrison's single that eventually drove in the game-winning run in the bottom of the 10th.
