Algoma coach has mixed feelings about team

During the Algoma girls basketball two game losing streak the head coach has mixed feelings about how his team has played. The Wolves played two really tough teams, the top two in the Packerland Conference, in Gibraltar and Kewaunee. Head Coach Mark Zastrow liked how Algoma played against Kewaunee. The Storm may be too strong for everybody in the conference as they have not lost a game. Zastrow didn't think his team played very well at all against the Vikings, a game that probably cost them a chance at coming in second in the conference. The head coach did give a lot of credit to Gibraltar.



The Wolves will try to get back in the win column when they travel to Oconto Friday night, tip-off at 7:30 p.m.

Packerland Conference Boys Basketball Standings Frozen

Not a single game has been played this week in Packerland Conference boys basketball so its been pretty easy to track the standings as the end of the season draws near.  Southern Door has only one team to keep an eye on in their rearview mirror. Peshtigo is three full wins behind the Eagles but only one loss behind the front-runners.


Here is a look at the current Packerland Conference Boys Basketball standings as provided by Conference Commissioner Mike Holtz:

Packers assistant coaches falling into place

The Green Bay Packers have named Alvis Whitted wide receivers coach. Head Coach Matt LaFleur made the announcement Wednesday.


Whitted (WHITT-id), who played wide receiver for nine seasons in the NFL, worked for the last seven years as the wide receivers coach at Colorado State University. During his tenure at CSU, Whitted mentored three All-America wide receivers, including two consensus first-team All-Americans who also were finalists for the Biletnikoff Award (Michael Gallup in 2017 and Rashard Higgins in 2014). The third receiver, Preston Williams, was a second-team All-American in 2018 and tied Higgins for the second-most receptions (96) in a season in school history. Prior to joining the Rams in February 2012, Whitted had a brief stint with Appalachian State. In 2011, he was the offensive quality-control assistant for UCLA, working with wide receivers and special teams as well as heading up the defensive scout team. Whitted spent the 2010 season coaching wide receivers at Division III Millsaps College in Jackson, Miss. He began his coaching career as an assistant at his alma mater, Orange High School in Hillsborough, N.C., from 2008-09. Whitted was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the seventh round (No. 192 overall) of the 1998 NFL Draft out of North Carolina State, and after four seasons with the Jaguars, he played five years with the Oakland Raiders, appearing in 123 games with 24 starts over his career.

Schedule post-storm taking shape

It is not easy trying to reschedule four days worth of events, but athletic directors in Door and Kewaunee counties are beginning to do just that for missed basketball games and wrestling matches. Snow canceled events Monday and Tuesday while extreme cold is to blame for cancellations Wednesday and Thursday. One of those events is the Southern Door/Kewaunee wrestling match, a de facto Packerland Conference championship that will be decided Monday instead of tonight. Between the weather and some Packerland teams fielding only a couple wrestlers, Eagles head coach Jerry Englebert said last week it has been a struggle to even get good weeks of practice.

 Schedules appear to be back normal on Friday when school is expected to be back in session. We have a list of some of the rescheduled contests online with this story.

Bucks take top record north of the border

Two of the best teams in the Eastern Conference will battle in Canada tonight when the Milwaukee Bucks play the Toronto Raptors. If things hold out for the rest of the season, the Bucks would win a crucial tiebreaker over the Raptors for home-court advantage in the playoffs with a victory. The Raptors are coming off a 123-120 victory over the Dallas Mavericks Sunday while the Bucks are a couple days removed from its Tuesday night 115-105 victory over the Detroit Pistons. A national audience on TNT will be tuning in when the game tips off from Toronto's Scotiabank Arena at 7 p.m.

Badgers beat Nebraska on the road

The 24th ranked Wisconsin Badgers basketball team beat Nebraska 62-51 Tuesday night. Wisconsin's leading scorer was Brad Davison with 13 points. Ethan Happ scored ten points and collected nine rebounds.


Wisconsin led by seven points at the half and kept a lead on Nebraska during the entire second half.


UW next hosts Maryland on Friday at 8:00 PM.

Bucks still have not lost back-to-back games all season

Through 49 games of the NBA season, the Milwaukee Bucks have still not lost back-to-back games. The streak is incredible. They ensured the run would continue with a 115-105 win in Detroit Tuesday night.


Giannis Antetokounmpo was two rebounds shy of a triple-double. He finished with a team-high 21 points in the win coupled with 11 assists and eight rebounds. Eric Bledsoe added 20 points and seven assists for the Bucks.


Milwaukee next travels to Washington to play the Wizards Saturday at 6:00 PM CST.

Packers name Getsy Quarterbacks Coach

The Green Bay Packers have named Luke Getsy quarterbacks coach. Head Coach Matt LaFleur made the announcement Tuesday.



Getsy returns to the Packers after spending last season as the offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach for Mississippi State. The Bulldogs finished the 2018 regular season ranked second in the Southeastern Conference and 20th in the FBS in rushing yards per game (226.4). Over his last two seasons in Green Bay (2016-17), Getsy worked as the wide receivers coach after originally joining the Packers in 2014 as the offensive quality control coach. Prior to his first stint with Green Bay, Getsy coached on the collegiate level for seven seasons (2007-13).



After his playing career at the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Akron, Getsy was a graduate assistant for the Zips (2007-08). In 2009, he was the offensive coordinator at West Virginia Wesleyan. Getsy returned to Pitt to serve as an offensive graduate assistant in 2010. From 2011-12, he was the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and in 2013, Getsy was the wide receivers coach at Western Michigan.

No school means no basketball practice

With Algoma canceling school Monday through Thursday this week, that presents their basketball teams with a tough challenge. The Wolves aren’t able to practice any of those days. The Algoma girls game scheduled for Monday against Green Bay NEW Lutheran had to be postponed to a later date, so the team will have gone a week and a half between games. Their last game was a 45-34 loss to Kewaunee on Monday, the 22nd of January. The Wolves play again on Friday when they travel to Oconto. Head Coach Mark Zastrow will urge his girls to try to keep in shape during this break of no school.



Zastrow is worried about his team coming out and playing rusty on Friday night, although Oconto is in the same position with school being canceled there as well this week. Tip-off for Friday is at 7:30 p.m.

Bucks road trip continues to Detroit

The Milwaukee Bucks look to rebound from its loss on Sunday with a trip to the Motor City. The Bucks are coming off a tough 118-112 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday, while the Detroit Pistons are coming off a hard luck defeat of their own on Friday to the Dallas Mavericks. The Pistons have a little extra urgency against the Eastern Conference leaders as they are just one spot outside of the playoffs. Tuesday's game begins at 6 p.m. local time at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. 

Tuesday events get canceled

Another day, another slate of games in Door and Kewaunee counties postponed due to Winter Storm Beth. Many of the contests postponed on Monday are initially rescheduled for Thursday, but with wind chills ranging from -35 to -50 degrees in the forecast, even those games may be in doubt. 


Here is a list of tonight's postponed boys basketball games:

Kewaunee @ Algoma

Oconto @ Southern Door

St Mary Catholic @ Gibraltar - rescheduled for February 14th

Peshtigo @ Sevastopol has been rescheduled for February 11th. 

Clintonville @ Luxemburg-Casco

Bucks fall to Thunder 118-112

The Milwaukee Bucks made a comeback in the second half but could not overcome its early struggles in their 118-112 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder Sunday night. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 27 points and 18 rebounds, but the player who stole the show was the Thunder's Paul George. Scoring 36 points in 37 minutes of play, George was 8 for 12 behind the arc, including one that put the game out of reach in the final minute. The road trip continues for the Eastern Conference leaders when they take on the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday. 

Monday athletic events canceled

Winter Storm Beth will be the only one to claim victory Monday with all athletic contests canceled on Monday. This includes planned broadcasts of Gibraltar basketball on 105.1 The Viking and Luxemburg-Casco basketball on 96.7 WBDK.


The Gibraltar versus Kewaunee girls basketball game has been rescheduled for Thursday night, while the Luxemburg-Casco girls will host Marinette on February 4th to make up tonight's game and that game will be aired on 96.7 WBDK.


The girls basketball game between Sevastopol and Stockbridge scheduled for this evening at Sevastopol has been postponed to February 4th.


The girls basketball game between Southern Door and Peshtigo scheduled for tonight at Southern doorn has been moved to February 16th. 


The girls basketball game scheduled for tonight between Sturgeon Bay and Oconto at Sturgeon Bay has been canceled. 


Tonight's Algoma versus Green Bay NEW Lutheran girls basketball game at Algoma has been postponed to a later unspecified date.

New coach understands "War on the Shore" rivalry

The Kewaunee head coach is only in his second year on the job but he knows how important the rivalry with Algoma is. Head Coach Luke Neitzel has figured out that the Algoma game means a little more to people than any other game. There's a reason the game is dubbed "War on the Shore." The Wolves may be struggling this season but Neitzel is expecting a competitive game when the teams meet on Tuesday. 



Kewaunee took the first matchup of the season between the two teams 85-30. Algoma will try to be more competitive on their home floor in the next matchup. The Wolves are 1-14 overall and 0-9 in the Packerland Conference. Meanwhile, the Storm are 8-6 overall and 6-4 in the conference. The tip-off on Tuesday is at 7:30 p.m.

Sturgeon Bay remembers past game against Oconto

Sturgeon Bay girls basketball head coach Erik Tauschek remembers his team’s last matchup against Oconto as a missed opportunity. The Clippers led by 11 with just over three minutes left to play in the first half, but could not finish the game out and ended up falling to the Blue Devils 67-49. Although Tauschek’s squad held Oconto star Mara Allen to just 15 points underneath, the Blue Devils were able to find enough scoring elsewhere to make the comeback and seal away the victory. Sturgeon Bay will get a second chance at taking a victory off of Oconto this Monday at home. Tauschek said he still plans on stopping Allen on Monday but will show an increased focus on making sure there is sound defense away from the post as well.



Sturgeon Bay is 1-15 on the season, but have made large strides in the last few weeks. The last two games for the Clippers have both been close contests, with Sturgeon Bay staying within a five-point deficit each game.

Sevastopol looking for two straight non-conference wins

Fresh off a 57-41 non-conference victory over Lena Friday night, the Sevastopol girls basketball team will look to capture their second straight on Monday as they host Stockbridge. As one of the smallest schools on the Pioneers’ schedule this season, Stockbridge sometimes struggles to put together a team, and depending on the number of players interested, will often shed games from its schedule to accommodate. However, Sevastopol was able to keep the school on for a game for the fourth year in a row, and head coach Dan Judas is preparing accordingly. He said with a new coach and a new system in place, he’s not quite sure what to expect from Stockbridge this season.



Sevastopol is 3-11 this season, with all three wins coming against non-conference opponents. Monday’s game against Stockbridge will tip off at 5:00 p.m.

Friday basketball round-up

There was plenty of high school basketball to be played across Door County on Friday, as teams continue to fight for the top positions within the Packerland and North Eastern Conferences.


Four Gibraltar boys reached double-digit scoring in an eventual 76-64 victory over Algoma. Trevor Reinhardt and Even Henry led the way with 17 and 16 points respectively.


Sturgeon Bay fell to Kewaunee to put the team back at .500 once again for the year in the Packerland Conference.


Sevastopol kept it close, but could not overcome Oconto en route to a 61-59 loss. 


Southern Door continued its undefeated streak as well, easily handling NEW Lutheran 67-44 on the road.


In North Eastern Conference play, Luxemburg-Casco were taken down by Wrightstown 59-49.


On the girls' side, Sevastopol picked up their third win of the season in a 57-41 victory over Lena. Amber Roalkvan sunk four three-pointers on her way to a game-high 17 points for the Pioneers.

Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship Wiinners

The local competition for Council #2478, Knights of Columbus Free Throw contest was held Friday evening at the Corpus Christi gym in Sturgeon Bay.  First place winners received medals.  Embroidered patches and certificates were provided to all participants.   Age level divisions ran from 9 to 14 years old for boys and for girls.

Sturgeon Bay recognized for excellent sportsmanship

The Sturgeon Bay girls basketball team has received a glowing mark of approval from a WIAA official. Stephen Sanders, who has had a 45-year career as a referee, was on the court during the Clippers' meeting with Green Bay West a couple weeks ago. Following the contest, Sanders wrote a letter of appreciation to the team. In the letter, Sanders praised the sportsmanship the team and the coaching philosophy of head coach Erik Tauschek, saying he "displayed teamwork, discipline, and selflessness." Sturgeon Bay High School Principal Bob Nickel said he's been pleased with the emphasis that his school's athletic programs have placed on sportsmanship this year.

The letter of appreciation comes at a very interesting time for Sturgeon Bay, as the rest of the state is struggling to find officials due to various amounts of disrespect encountered by those who help with high school contests. Earlier this month, the WIAA released an opinion piece telling overzealous parents to 'cool it' in an effort to stop the shortages.

Gibraltar School District searching for track coaches

A couple of spring coaching positions will need to be filled at the Gibraltar School District. At its regular meeting on Monday, January 28th, the Gibraltar Board of Education will consider the approval of a posting for the head middle school track coach. The group will also consider the approval of the employment of a new girl's head track coach. Previous middle school coach Devin Thomas stepped down due to family-related time constraints, and the previous girl's track coach Jake Danen will be resigining from his position as well. Gibraltar athletic director Peggy Tanck said the position is one of collaboration.

Whoever is chosen for the position will join boys track coach Joy Manweiler-Bastian. Names of candidates for either position are not to be revealed until after the search comes to a conclusion. Candidates for the high school girls' job were to be interviewed on Friday.

Packers announce coaching & personnel moves

The Green Bay Packers have named Kirk Olivadotti inside linebackers coach, Justin Outten tight ends coach and Adam Stenavich offensive line coach. Head Coach Matt LaFleur made the announcements Thursday.


Olivadotti has spent 16 seasons as a coach in the NFL, all with the Washington Redskins. He is one of 11 members of the Redskins’ assistant coach honor roll, which recognizes coaches with at least 10 seasons of service as an assistant in Washington. During his time with the Redskins, Washington ranked in the top 10 in the NFL in overall defense eight times. The past five seasons (2014-18), Olivadotti coached inside linebackers for Washington. From 2011-13, he served in the same position at the University of Georgia. Prior to his stint with the Bulldogs, Olivadotti spent 11 seasons with the Redskins as a defensive assistant (2010), linebackers coach (2007-09), defensive line assistant/special teams assistant (2006), defensive quality control/special teams assistant (2004-05) and defensive quality control/defensive back assistant (2000-03). After being a four-year letterwinner as a wide receiver at Purdue from 1993-96, he took his first coaching job, tutoring wide receivers and tight ends at Maine Maritime Academy in 1997. Olivadotti then spent two seasons (1998-99) as an assistant coach for Indiana State.


Outten (OW-ten) was the offensive assistant for the Atlanta Falcons the past two seasons (2017-18). He began with the Falcons as an offensive intern in 2016. Over the last three seasons, Atlanta has averaged 27.2 points per game (No. 4 in the NFL over that span) and 389.9 yards per game (No. 3 in the league over that span). Before joining the Falcons, Outten worked as the assistant head coach/offensive coordinator/offensive line coach at Westfield High School in Houston, Texas from 2008-15. Over that span, he helped coach 24 offensive linemen that received scholarships to play in college and also coached one high school All-American. From 2007-08, Outten was a graduate assistant at Syracuse University, the school he played on the offensive line for from 2003-06.


Stenavich comes to the Packers after serving as the assistant offensive line coach for the San Francisco 49ers the last two seasons. He helped coach a line that cleared the way for RB Matt Breida to average 4.96 yards per carry in 2016-17, ranking No. 5 in the NFL over that span (min. 200 att.). The line also blocked for a passing attack that recorded 4,247 yards in 2018, the ninth most in franchise history. Prior to joining the 49ers, Stenavich spent six years in the college ranks. He first worked as a strength and conditioning intern at the University of Michigan (2011), then a graduate assistant for the Wolverines (2012-13) and then coached the offensive lines at Northern Arizona University (2014) and San Jose State (2015-16). The Marshfield, Wis., native played left tackle at Michigan (2002-05) and was named first-team All-Big Ten in 2004-05. Following his collegiate career, Stenavich signed with the Carolina Panthers as an undrafted rookie free agent. He was signed to the Packers’ practice squad in 2006, played for the Amsterdam Admirals of NFL Europa in 2007, spent the 2008 training camp with the Dallas Cowboys and was on the Houston Texans’ practice squad for two seasons (2009-10).




The Green Bay Packers also named Milt Hendrickson director – football operations. The announcement was made Thursday by General Manager Brian Gutekunst.


Hendrickson is entering his 15th season in the NFL and first with the Packers. His first NFL experience came as a training-camp intern for Green Bay in 2004. Hendrickson went on to work 14 seasons in the personnel department of the Baltimore Ravens. During his time in Baltimore (2005-18), the Ravens won a Super Bowl and four division titles, appeared in the playoffs eight times and won 138 games (including postseason), the sixth most in the NFL over that span. With the Ravens, Hendrickson was a player personnel assistant in 2005, worked primarily with the pro personnel staff in 2006-07, was promoted to Midwest area scout after the 2008 NFL Draft, was named mid-regional scout following the 2013 NFL Draft and was promoted to national scout after the 2016 NFL Draft.


Prior to joining the Ravens, Hendrickson was a coach in high school and college. After serving as the team captain for both the football and baseball teams at Luther College, he went on to earn his master’s degree in exercise and sports science-sports administration from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. In 1996, he was the assistant offensive line coach at UW-La Crosse. From 1997-99, Hendrickson was the head varsity football coach at De Soto (Wis.) High School while teaching language arts and social studies at De Soto Middle School. He then went back to Luther to coach the offensive line/running backs from 2000-01 and then served as the associate head coach/special teams coordinator/offensive line coach from 2002-04.

Girls basketball round-up: Door County teams lose on the road

Southern Door and Sturgeon Bay each fell on the road Thursday night in Packerland Conference action.
In Oconto, the Eagles could not keep a seven-point halftime lead as they fell 70-62 to the host Blue Devils. Grace LeGrave scored 20 points and Nicole Norton added 19 points in the loss. The deciding came at the line as the Blue Devils went to the line 26 times off of 19 Southern Door fouls compared to just eight attempts from the charity stripe for the Eagles.
In Green Bay, it was Sturgeon Bay that made a comeback in the second half but fell just short in the 52-47 loss to NEW Lutheran. Sarah Bridenhagen led the Clippers with 28 points.
Tonight, Sevastopol will host Lena at 7:30 p.m.

Boys basketball preview: Strange week ends in games

Practice time has been at a premium this week due to Winter Storm Austin, but a full slate of area boys basketball is on the docket for Friday night. 
The conference’s top two scorers meet in Green Bay when Southern Door takes its Packerland winning streak to NEW Lutheran. Kyle Daoust leads the conference with 22.4 points game, followed by the Blazers’ all time leading scorer Samuel Meerstein, who averages 20.5 per game.
Kewaunee and Sturgeon Bay can potentially leapfrog NEW Lutheran if the Blazers loses and one of them wins. Carson Talbert is averaging a double-double a game with 18.4 points and 10.1 rebounds a game.
Sevastopol hopes to snap its conference losing streak at three at Oconto. Robby Pollman leads the Pioneers with 18.3 points a game.

A win would also get the Spartans above .500 on the season.   

Spartan girls tie for first in NEC win over Freedom on WBDK

The Luxemburg-Casco Spartans girls avenged an early season loss to the Freedom Irish with an impressive 56-43 road victory Thursday night.  The ninth consecutive win by the Spartans puts them in a first-place tie with Freedom in the North Eastern Conference while snapping the Irish’s 14 game winning streak.

Luxemburg-Casco (11-1, 13-3 overall) broke open a close 14-14 game in the first half with a 15-1 run and eventually took a 34-19 lead into intermission.  Cassie Schiltz led the Spartans scoring with 22 points while Jenna Jorgenson added 13 points.  Freedom (11-1, 15-2) did make a run in the second half behind five three-pointers by Callie Genke to get as close as seven points, but the Spartans showed poise and stellar defense to claim a convincing victory.

Southern Door wrestlers set sights on conference crown after win

A lone pin by Oconto's Troy Wenzel resulted in the only contested win on the evening in Southern Door's 72-6 victory. Academics, injuries, and sickness gave the Blue Devils only one wrestler to work with as the Eagles took their forfeits in stride. Southern Door's Brady Tooley was a late decision to wrestle Wenzel at 170 pounds since many Eagle wrestlers are moving down a weight class in the weeks leading up to the state series. Tooley gave Wenzel all he could handle but ultimately was pinned in the closing seconds of the third period. The victory sets the stage for next week's dual against Kewaunee as the two undefeated teams in the Packerland Conference look to capture the 2019 title. It will be carried live on 104.1 WRLU beginning at 6:30 p.m. with the pre-match show followed by the first whistle at 7 p.m.


Before the varsity match, the Southern Door Middle School team beat Oconto 104-15. The Eagles won 21 of its 24 matches.  Joshua Nachtwey, Braden Wessel, Hailey Veeser, Cody Nellis, Hayden  Jeanquardt, Alex Buhr, Issac Boudhain, Zack Grosbeier, Ethan Alexander, Kameron Robinson, Wyatt Wilke, Will Jandrin, and Lukas Kallin all posted pins during the dual. 



Kewaunee boys coach confident about his team

The Kewaunee boys basketball team is tied for third in the Packerland Conference and the head coach thinks his team can hold that position outright. At 5-4 in the conference, the Storm are tied with Sturgeon Bay and Green Bay NEW Lutheran. Sitting ahead of them are undefeated Southern Door and Peshtigo, whose only loss came to Southern Door. Head Coach Luke Neitzel says his team has a lot of potential and they keep getting better. In their last game which was against Southern Door, the Eagles had their lowest margin of victory in any game this season. Neitzel like how his team competed in that game.



Kewaunee will try to break the tie with Sturgeon Bay when they host the Clippers on Friday night at 7:30 p.m.

Sevastopol awaits non-conference opponent at home

The Sevastopol girls’ basketball team will look to pick up a victory this Friday. The Pioneers will welcome Lena High School from the Marinette-Oconto Conference to Institute. The Wildcats are 1-13 on the year, and 1-10 in their own conference, and have averaged 34.2 points per game this season.  Maddy Herald leads Lena in scoring at 11.6 points per game, but perhaps a bigger threat to Sevastopol will be forward Mackenna Porteir, who averages 8 points a game but also adds an average of 10.6 rebounds per game to her post-game totals. Sevastopol head coach Dan Judas doesn’t think records will mean much on Friday. He said Lena plays in a tough conference and will give his team a challenge at home.


Judas said his team would need to establish their style of play early and not allow the Wildcats to dictate the flow of the game offensively and defensively. Following the matchup with Lena, the Pioneers will take the weekend off before traveling to Stockbridge on Monday. Sevastopol is 2-11 on the season and 0-10 in the Packerland conference.

Southern Door travels to Oconto Wrestling on 104.1 WRLU; LC vs. Freedom Postponed

Another odd week for the Southern Door Eagles precedes its dual against the Oconto Blue Devils in Packerland Conference wrestling action. Last year, the Eagles won 78-6 without ever stepping on the mat due to forfeits. This week, Winter Storm Austin played a role in canceling two practices following what has been traditionally a lighter Monday practice.  The Eagles are coming off a good weekend at Sheboygan North where Grant Englebert led the team with a 5th place finish at 145 pounds. Making the podium for the Eagles were Austin Falish (6th), Kyle Conard (7th), Griffin Slezewski (8th), and Drew Price (6th).


Tim Kowols and Greg Letter will have the call beginning at 5:30 p.m. with the middle school matches from Oconto Middle School followed by the varsity pre-match show at 6:30 and the first whistle of the dual at 7 on 104.1 WRLU and streaming worldwide at


Other local wrestling matches in the area include Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol following the Eagles around the bay to battle Peshtigo and the Luxemburg-Casco match scheduled with Freedom in a battle of two of the top Division 2 teams in the state was postponed due to unforeseen circumstances. 

Sturgeon Bay girls at their best when shooting well

For the Sturgeon Bay girls, last Saturday’s 60-56 defeat at the hands of Lourdes Academy brought yet another developmental success for the team. Head coach Erik Tauschek said his team made significant process in shooting the ball effectively, which led to the Clippers putting up their highest point total of the season. This proved especially true in the second half of Saturday’s game, with Sturgeon Bay outscoring the Knights 36-29. Tauschek said his team’s accomplishments on Saturday were also impressive as they came against one of the best teams in the Trailways - East Conference.


Sturgeon Bay is 1-15 on the season and 1-9 in the Packerland Conference. The Clippers are next in action Thursday evening as they hit the road to take on the Green Bay NEW Lutheran Blazers.

Badgers Basketball sees sophomore Reuvers step up

Gibraltar boys basketball filled with three-sport athletes

The Gibraltar boys basketball team has won four out of their last six games, and a large portion of their success can be attributed to the multi-sport foundation many of its players subscribe to. Head coach Justin Burress said almost all of his players, if not all of them, play a sport in the fall, winter and spring seasons. This versatility, Burress added, helps his team excel in many areas essential to student-athletes, including areas in the classroom.


Several Vikings are award-winners in their area as well. Trevor Reinhardt, a leading scorer on the team this season, was recently named to the 2018 Wisconsin Football Coaches Association All-Region Team for his role as quarterback for the Gibraltar football team. In addition, Evan Henry was named to the All State (Honorable Mention) and Academic All State teams by the Wisconsin Cross Country Coaches Association for the 2018 Cross Country season.

AmFam Insurance acquires naming rights to Miller Park

The Brewers announced Tuesday that Madison-based American Family would take over the naming rights from MillerCoors, which had held them since the ballpark opened in 2001.  The terms of the naming rights deal were not disclosed and the stadiums' new name will be released at a later date.  

Kewaunee girls basketball picks up BIG win against Algoma

Kewaunee girls basketball is riding high after 45-34 over rival Algoma Tuesday night. The eight annual Warm Hands, Warm Hearts game featured a mitten toss at halftime where fans tossed more than mittens. Winter clothing items of all sorts were donated by fans in attendance at last night's game. 


Every time these two schools meet, the game is referred to the "War on the Shore." Tuesday, was a defensive battle. Likely Packerland Conference player of the year Sara Dax was the'X-Factor' again for Kewaunee. She tallied 18 points to lead all scorers. The Storm defense held Algoma to just 11 first-half points.


The win gives Kewaunee even more breathing room atop the conference standings now at (11-0) Algoma falls to (7-3). Gibraltar appears to be the only team that could now challenge for the conference crown. The Vikings were idle last night due to adverse weather conditions. The Vikings are (8-2).

Algoma boys coach keeping an eye on next season

The Algoma boys basketball coach is trying to make his team the best they can be for this season while also keeping an eye on the future. Head Coach Corie Zimmerman has to do that since the team has seven juniors, one sophomore, and one freshman. Zimmerman wants to figure out which of those players play well together to get a head start on next season. He knows this team can be greatly improved for next year.



The Wolves lost a non-conference game at Manitowoc Lutheran on Monday night 70-37. Algoma is now 1-13 overall and 0-8 in the Packerland Conference this year. They travel to Gibraltar on Friday night with the tip-off at 7:30 PM.

Kewaunee boys let loose from three

The Kewaunee boys basketball team is enjoying a turnaround season thanks to some great three-point shooters. The Storm are 7-6 overall after finishing 9-14 last year. This season the Storm are hitting over seven threes per game. Ryan Carmichael and Alex Rohr are the big reasons for that as they both make over 40% of the three-point attempts. Head Coach Luke Neitzel says he would like to get the ball inside more often but that's not the kind of team he has right now. 



Kewaunee could not knock off Southern Door Monday night but it was the Eagles' smallest margin of victory in conference games this season. The final score was 86-74. The Storm will host Sturgeon Bay on Friday night at 7:30 PM. Kewaunee is tied with Green Bay NEW Lutheran and Sturgeon Bay for third place in the Packerland Conference.

Packerland Conference Girls Basketball Standings

Kewaunee is running away from the pack in high school girls basketball in the Packerland Conference this season. A perfect (10-0) start to the conference slate was not expected by many of the coaches in the conference prior to the season. Many believed it would be a three or four team race with the top teams all experiencing multiple losses in conference play. The Storm has excelled in a season led by 1,000-plus point scorer Sara Dax. Here is a look at current standings as provided by conference commissioner Mike Holtz:


SCHOOL                               WON              LOST

Packerland Conference Boys Basketball Standings

Girls basketball preview: Mitten Toss game in Kewaunee

The annual Warm Hands, Warm Hearts game in Kewaunee highlights an evening of Packerland Conference basketball.


In Kewaunee, the Storm looks to stay unbeaten in conference play when it plays county rival and fellow Packerland front-runner Algoma. The intense rivalry takes a reprieve at halftime when Kewaunee hosts its eighth annual Warm Hands, Warm Hearts Mitten Toss. Fans are encouraged to bring winter clothing items to donate to needy families in the area.


Sevastopol travels to Peshtigo in search of its first Packerland victory of the season. Zoe Kuehn continues to be a do-it-all player for the Pioneers, leading the team in scoring and rebounding.


Sturgeon Bay looks to snap a four-game conference skid in Green Bay tonight when it plays NEW Lutheran. The Clippers look to rebound from a tough loss at Lourdes Academy Saturday by riding the momentum of its second half when it outscored the Knights 36-29.


Southern Door hopes to get a little bit closer to the top of the Packerland mountain when they play at Oconto. The Eagles won their last time out, beating NEW Lutheran 69-43. 

Bucks win fifth straight

Giannis Antetokounmpo registered a double-double with 31 points and 15 rebounds in the Milwaukee Bucks’ win over the Dallas Mavericks 116-106. Four other Bucks players scored in double figures Monday night in Milwaukee with Eric Bledsoe (21 points), Malcolm Brogdon (19), Brook Lopez (16), and Khris Middleton (13) each hitting the mark. Lopez added 10 rebounds to give him a double-double as well. The Bucks defense was tested throughout tonight, especially by Mavericks rookie Luka Doncic. The Slovenian rookie became the second teenager in NBA history to record a triple-double when scored 18 points, collected 11 rebounds, and 10 assists. The Bucks will next host the Charlotte Hornets on Friday night. 

Gibraltar boys fall to Sturgeon Bay 71-50 on 105.1 WSBW

The Gibraltar boys basketball team could not overcome a first-half assault from the Sturgeon Bay Clippers as they fell 71-50 on Monday night. The Vikings started out slowly and could not seem to find the basket as they entered the locker room with just 16 points at the half. Sturgeon Bay's Jake Schneider caused Gibraltar all kinds of problems from the opening tip, driving to the basket and sinking multiple three-point shots en route to a season-high 23 point performance. The second half saw a much-improved Gibraltar side, but the lead was too far away for the Vikings to put together any sort of a comeback attempt. The largest positive for the Vikings came from the resurgence of Ryan Murphy, who hit five three-pointers and finished with a season-high of 19. Other double-digit scorers included Sturgeon Bay's Carson Talbert (13) and Trent Ehlers (11), and Gibraltar's Andras Szakala (13).


The Vikings (4-6, 4-4) will next face Algoma this Friday in a matchup that could see Gibraltar get back above the .500 mark in the conference this season. Sturgeon Bay (8-5, 5-4) will face Seymour in a non-conference matchup that will see the Clippers face their second Bay Conference opponent in the last few days.

Gibraltar boys looking for revenge against Sturgeon Bay

Gibraltar will look to avenge a 27-point loss as they travel down to Sturgeon Bay for a second visit with their Door County rivals. The Vikings (4-5, 4-3) were just another victim of the Clippers' (6-5, 4-4) hot start to begin the year, and could not control several scoring threats.

Boys basketball preview: Southern Door looks to stay unbeaten

In addition to the Gibraltar/Sturgeon Bay game being featured on 105.1 The Viking, Southern Door’s quest to remain perfect in conference highlights Monday’s slate of boys’ basketball games.
The Eagles look to rebound from a tough weekend loss to Freedom when it hosts Kewaunee. Kyle Daoust leads the conference in scoring at 21.9 points per game. 


Sevastopol looks to win its second conference game of the year when it battles NEW Lutheran at home. Robby Pollman (18.2 ppg) and Brent Haberli (14.5 ppg) each average double figures in scoring while Eddie Garcia leads the Pioneers in rebounding (6.2) and assists (3.1).


Algoma plays in the lone non-conference game in the Packerland as they hit the road to play Manitowoc Lutheran.  Carter Zimmerman and Mitchell Zimmer each lead the team in scoring with just over six points a game. 



Week without games brings pros and cons for Gibraltar girls

Following their 52-34 victory over Algoma last Friday, the Gibraltar girls basketball team will not return to the court for yet another week. No games are scheduled for the Vikings during the week of January 21st, and while other Packerland Conference teams will be facing off against one another, the girls will be studying for finals instead. Head coach Josh Kropuenske recognizes both the pros and cons of sitting out for an entire week. Although he recognized that playing no games could potentially ice the red-hot Vikings, he also pointed out that finals week has never been the best week for his team.



When the Vikings (10-4, 8-2) return to action next Monday, they’ll have to hope they can avoid being rusty in a game-like situation. The team will face off against a very talented Kewaunee (14-1, 10-0) squad that last defeated Sturgeon Bay by a 44-point margin.

Wisconsin is first team to beat Michigan

Wisconsin was able to hand Michigan their first loss of the season on Saturday with a 64-54 victory in Madison. The Badgers were able to overcome a two-point halftime deficit and ended the game on a 7-0 run. Ethan Happ had a monster game and was the only Badger to score in double figures with 26 points, 10 rebounds, and 7 assists. They’re now 12-6 overall and 4-3 in the Big Ten. Wisconsin travels to Illinois on Wednesday night. 

Bucks get road victory

The Bucks are still holding on to the number one seed in the Eastern Conference after getting a road win in Orlando 118-108. They shot a blistering 55.3% from the floor with Eric Bledsoe leading the way with 30 points and shooting 12-14 from the field. Giannis Antetokounmpo added in 25. Milwaukee holds a half-game lead over Toronto for the top spot in the conference. The Bucks will host the Mavericks in an MLK Day matinee at 1:00 PM.

UW-Green Bay men end losing streak

The UW-Green Bay men’s basketball team was able to end their three-game losing streak by knocking off UIC 90-85 at home. Sandy Cohen III led all scorers with 26 points and JayQuan McCloud added in 21. The Phoenix are now 10-10 overall and 4-3 in Horizon League play. They’re tied for fourth in the conference with Milwaukee and Wright State. The Phoenix will travel to Northern Kentucky on Thursday night.

Saturday high school basketball results

Gibraltar secured a road win in a non-conference matchup with Montello. Senior guard Trevor Reinhardt led the Vikings to a 70-62 victory by scoring 16 points. This puts Gibraltar back at .500 with five wins and five losses. The Vikings go back to conference play Monday night when they travel to Sturgeon Bay.
Sturgeon Bay improved to 7-5 overall on the season by defeating Xavier by a final score of 68-59. This game was the first in a stretch of three games in four nights for the Clippers. They’ll host Gibraltar on Monday night and have another non-conference game at Seymour on Tuesday night. 
Southern Door is still undefeated in the Packerland but is now 3-3 playing outside the conference after a 71-46 loss at Freedom. The Irish went on a 16-0 run early in the game and never looked back. The Eagles will try to get back on track when they host Kewaunee on Monday night.
Sturgeon Bay came up just short in their non-conference game at Lourdes Academy. The final was 60-56 and almost pulled it out because of 24 points from Sarah Bridenhagen. The Clippers will travel to Green Bay NEW Lutheran on Tuesday night. 

Sturgeon Bay boys looking to pick up season sweep against Gibraltar

The Sturgeon Bay boys basketball team returns to conference play on Monday as they will line up against the Gibraltar Vikings for the second time this season. Following a brief excursion outside of the Packerland Conference with Saturday’s home contest against Xavier, the Clippers (6-5, 4-4) will have a chance to sweep their Door County rivals and jump over the Vikings (4-5, 4-3) in the conference standings. Last time out, the team took home an 82-55 victory in what was Gibraltar’s first game of the season. Despite the early success, Sturgeon Bay coach Jim Benesh said the course of the season has made the Vikings a different basketball team than what the team saw the first time around.



Tonight’s game will be broadcasted live from Sturgeon Bay High School on 105.1 WSBW, with Connor Harbit and Jay Kita on the call. Pregame will start at 7:00 before tip-off at 7:30.

Gibraltar establishes themselves with 52-34 win over Algoma

The Gibraltar Vikings (10-4, 8-2) girls basketball team made a statement on  Friday evening, handing the Algoma Wolves (10-5, 7-2) 52-34 to claim second place in the Packerland Conference. Head coach Josh Kropuenske said was extremely pleased with the way his team followed the game plan, which led to some great defensive stops and limited the number of open shooters that Algoma was able to create. He also said the defensive effort overall was one of the best he’s seen from the team this season.



Payton Pluff and Abby Sitte led the way for the Vikings with 19 and 13 points respectively. Makayla Guilette turned in another solid effort for the Wolves, putting up a 13-point performance. Gibraltar will take a week off coinciding with the school district’s finals week before coming back to the court Monday to face the Packerland Conference leader in Kewaunee.

Spartans run away from Little Chute 82-56 on WBDK

The Luxemburg-Casco Spartan girls dominated the Little Chute Mustangs 82-56 in a North Eastern Conference basketball game Friday night in Luxemburg on 96.7FM WBDK.

Luxemburg-Casco (10-1, 12-3 overall) was not able to shake the Mustangs early on.  Little Chute (6-5, 9-6 overall) was within three points in the last seconds of the half before Spartan’s Jenna Jorgenson was fouled at the buzzer on a half-court attempt.  Jorgenson made all three free throws and the Spartans took a 40-34 led into intermission. 

The Spartans pulled away in the second half behind Freshman Lauren Adams who scored 17 of her 23 points including three three-pointers.  Jorgenson led Luxemburg-Casco with 25 points while Cassie Schiltz added 19.   6’ 2” Hannah Vandenberg was the only Mustang player to score in double digits as she finished with 23 points.  

The evening included the 1988 team that won the Spartans' first girls basketball state championship being recognized at halftime.  Eight members of the team who was coached by the late Mike Schanofer were in attendance.

Sevastopol girls looking to be more aggressive as year rolls on

Coming off of a 56-45 loss to Green Bay NEW Lutheran on Monday, the Sevastopol girls basketball team will attempt to be more aggressive in forcing turnovers on defense. The Pioneers forced just 8 turnovers against the Blazers, and head coach Dan Judas pointed to the difference between turnovers forced and turnovers surrendered as a major factor in Monday's game. Judas said to create more turnovers, his team would need to cut down on theirs first.

The Pioneers will have plenty of opportunities to improve at taking the ball away, with games scheduled against Oconto, Peshtigo, and Stockbridge in the coming weeks. Sevastopol is 2-10 on the season and 0-9 in the Packerland Conference this season.

Spartan girls battle Little Chute on WBDK Friday

Gibraltar preparing for non-conference matchup

The Gibraltar boys basketball team will soon find themselves a long way for home. On Saturday, the Vikings will travel nearly 3-hours toward the lower-middle portion of Wisconsin for a meeting with the Montello Hilltoppers. The Hilltoppers play in the Trailways - West Conference and currently sit at 2-8 on the season. Head coach Justin Burress said the long bus ride could pose a problem to the team, but would not hurt the team's mentality once the game begins.

Aside from the long bus ride, Gibraltar will certainly come into Saturday's contest with more rest. Montello will face Trailways - West Conference leader Randolph on Friday evening, before a very quick turnaround to meet the Vikings Saturday afternoon.

Wessel picks up lone win in Southern Door's 54-22 victory

Southern Door used eight forfeits and a pin to secure its second straight Packerland Conference victory, beating Peshtigo 54-22 Thursday night. The Bulldogs won the first two contested matches of the evening by pins, first by Katelyn Lewis in the third period at 170 pounds over Bradley Skippon and then by 220 pounder Riley Plosczynski over Riley Phillips. That gave Peshtigo an 18-12 lead that would get flipped in a hurry as Southern Door collected two forfeits at 106 pounds and 113 pounds. Dylan Wessel wrestled in his first match since suffering a concussion and made it count with a second period pin over Omer Farghali at 120 pounds. The Bulldogs' Nick Parrette earned a major decision over Drew Price close out the contested match for the evening at 138 pounds.


The varsity wrestlers head to Sheboygan North on Saturday for a tournament while the JV squad head to Bay Port for an invite of their own.



Prior to the varsity match, the middle school won over 20 of its 34 matches to beat Peshtigo 112-47. Mason Motquin, Wyatt Wilke, Spencer Slezewski, Alex Whipple, Issac Boudhain, Thomas Jackson, Ethan Alexander, Kameron Robinson, Cruz Anchutz, Colton Krueger, and Brock Beyer all collected pins for the Eagles. 


Henry a dual threat for Gibraltar boys basketball

The Gibraltar boys basketball team is right in the middle of the race for the top spots in the Packerland Conference, and a big part of the Vikings' success has come from guard-forward combo Evan Henry. Henry leads the team in both scoring and rebounding this season, something that can be attributed to both his tall frame and his quick, guard-like movement on the floor. Although listed as a forward on the roster, head coach Justin Burress said neither he nor any of the other forwards listed on this year's roster practice a traditional, back-to-the-basket style. Instead, Burress said Henry is most threatening when he plays outside the paint.


Henry is averaging 12 points per game and 8.8 rebounds per game this season. The Vikings are 4-5 on the season and 4-3 in Packerland Conference play, and are scheduled for a non-conference matchup with Montello on Saturday.

Experience brings confidence for Sturgeon Bay boys

The Sturgeon Bay boys basketball team does not have a whole lot of previous varsity experience, but head coach Jim Benesh believes that more playing time will result in a more confident and efficient squad moving forward. Sturgeon Bay returned just two players from the previous year, and for a brief time, it didn't seem the affect the team. The Clippers started out hot this season, picking up three straight wins, but have since gone 3-5 in their last eight games. Benesh said he attributes this brief slide to lapses of inconsistency brought about by growing pains associated with getting used to the varsity level.



Sturgeon Bay is 6-5 on the season, and 4-4 in Packerland Conference play. The Clippers will take a break from conference action this Saturday when they welcome Xavier from the Bay Conference to their home floor.

Algoma hiring new soccer coaches

The Algoma School District is in need of all new soccer coaches. Algoma High School varsity and junior varsity, as well as the Algoma Middle School all had their coaches step down after last season. The Algoma soccer program has only been around since 2009. Brian Dawson was the previous varsity head coach and he helped start Algoma soccer from scratch and has been the varsity head coach every year. Algoma Athletic Director David Robertson says he would like to hire coaches who want to keep the kind of culture that Dawson had in his program.



All three head coaching positions will be paid positions and Algoma will be looking for volunteer assistant coaches. Algoma soccer only has a boys soccer team but girls are allowed to play on the team as well. Applications will be accepted until January 25th.

Young post players ready to lead Gibraltar girls

Payton Pluff has carried the bulk of the scoring this year for the Gibraltar girls basketball team, but when the senior graduates this spring, a couple of younger post players will be ready to carry the load. Karlee Kita and Sophia Alexander, both currently sophomores, have been tagged by head coach Josh Kropuenske as the next girls up to take over Pluff's post duties. Kita has already climbed her way into the starting lineup, where she averages 8.3 points per game. Kropuenske said she possesses a lot of the same traits that made Pluff such a dominant player over the years.



Alexander, while not quite at the scoring pace set by Pluff and Kita, also earned a lot of praise from Kropuenske. He said her toughness under the basket sets her apart from other girls.



The Vikings are currently 9-4 on the season and 7-2 in Packerland Conference play. A couple of tough tests await Gibraltar, with games against conference leaders Algoma and Kewaunee lurking in the coming weeks.

Packers name Hackett Offensive Coordinator

The Green Bay Packers have named Nathaniel Hackett offensive coordinator. Head Coach Matt LaFleur made the announcement Wednesday.


Hackett comes to the Packers after spending the majority of the last four seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars as quarterbacks coach (2015-16) and then offensive coordinator (Week 9 of 2016 – Week 12 of 18). In 2017, he guided an offense that finished in the top 10 in the NFL in points per game (No. 5, 26.1), yards per game (No. 6, 365.9), rushing yards per game (No. 1, 141.4), rushing yards per carry (No. 9, 4.29), red-zone TD percentage (No. 2, 64.0 percent), goal-to-go TD percentage (No. 1, 85.7 percent), sacks allowed (T-No. 3, franchise-low 24), sacks per pass attempt (No. 6, 4.55 percent) and average time of possession (No. 5, 31:47). It was the first time in franchise history that the Jaguars led the league in rushing. Jacksonville averaged 25.0 points during the 2017 postseason, helping the Jaguars reach the AFC Championship Game.


Prior to Jacksonville, Hackett was the offensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills from 2013-14. In his second season with Buffalo, the offense finished with an 86.0 passer rating, the highest for the Bills since 2002. Buffalo also totaled 33 plays of 25-plus yards, No. 6 in the NFL in 2014 and the most for the Bills since 2000. In 2013, he led a Bills offense that ranked No. 1 in the NFL with a red-zone scoring mark of 95.5 percent and No. 2 in the NFL with an average of 144.2 rushing yards per game, the best rushing mark by Buffalo since 1992 (152.3 yards per game).


Hackett joined the Bills after three years at Syracuse, where he served as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks/tight ends coach in 2011-12 after spending the 2010 season as quarterbacks/passing game/tight ends coach. Under his direction, the Orange set numerous school records in 2012, including total offense (6,188 yards), yards per game (476.0), passing yards (3,757), touchdown passes (26), completions (295) and first downs (328). The Orange featured a 3,000-yard passer, 1,000-yard rusher and 1,000-yard receiver in 2012 for the first time in school history while eclipsing 500-plus yards of offense in seven games.


Hackett’s first NFL experience came in 2006-07 as an offensive quality control coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. From 2008-09, he would work in the same position for the Buffalo Bills. From 2003-04, Hackett worked as an assistant to the offensive and defensive coordinators at Stanford. He remained with the Cardinal in 2005 as a specialists coach and recruiting coordinator. Hackett’s coaching career began as an assistant linebackers coach at University of California-Davis, where he was a four-year letterman as a linebacker and long snapper from 1999-2002.

Southern Door hosts Peshtigo tonight on 104.1 WRLU

Southern Door looks to improve to 2-0 in the Packerland Conference when it hosts Peshtigo Thursday night. The Eagles are coming off a 10th place finish at the Cutler Classic in New London over the weekend, collecting podium finishes for Grant Englebert, Kyle Conard, and Griffin Slezewski. The Bulldogs counter with Nick Parrette, who won the 138-pound weight class at Peshtigo’s own tournament over the weekend. Head coach Jerry Englebert says they are focusing on confidence entering matches.

The Eagles and Bulldogs will hit the mat at 7 p.m. Tim Kowols and Greg Letter will have the call on 104.1 WRLU beginning at 4:30 p.m. with middle school matches, followed by the pre-varsity match show at 6:30 p.m.


In other Packerland Conference action, Kewaunee hosts the Eagles' next opponent Oconto for a home dual. 

Kewaunee boys' basketball heads to Oconto

Kewaunee looks to make it two in a row when they head to Oconto for a Packerland Conference boys' basketball match-up. The Storm won their last game 70-49 over Sevastopol, led by the team's leading scorer Ryan Carmichael's 16 points. Three other Storm players scored in the double figures in the victory. The Blue Devils are riding a two-game losing streak into the contest, falling to Bonduel its last time out 68-54. Tip-off for the rescheduled game is 7:30 p.m. 

Bucks top Grizzlies 111-101

The Milwaukee Bucks used a big third quarter to earn a 111-101 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies Wednesday night in Tennessee. The Bucks outscored the Grizzlies 41-28 in the decisive third quarter, giving the visitors a little extra breathing room for when Memphis made a comeback attempt in the fourth quarter. Giannis Antetokounmpo led all scorers with 27 points while also collecting 11 rebounds. Three other Bucks players scored in double figures as the team won their 14th game out of their last 17 tries. The Bucks next play Saturday night in Orlando against the Magic.

Roalkvan leading Sevastopol girls by example

Sevastopol's Amber Roalkvan is not the most outspoken player on the court, but to hear it from head coach Dan Judas, she is still one of the most respected leaders on her team this season. The 5'3" senior guard is one of the most dedicated Pioneers on and off the court and has found considerable success as a result. Roalkvan is at the top or near the top of the board in several statistical categories, including points per game, rebounds per game, and assists per game. She is also the leading shooter behind the 3-point line for Sevastopol, shooting around 30% from behind the arc. Judas said Roalkvan is a shining example of how much simple dedication can do to improve a player.



Roalkvan's dedication, Judas said, would also benefit the program in the long run.



The Pioneers are currently 2-10 on the season and 0-8 in conference play and are coming off a loss to NEW Lutheran on Monday. Sevastopol will next take to the floor Friday at home against Oconto.

Algoma girls led by post player guard

The Algoma girls basketball team has turned a formula of playing great defense and relying on their leading scorer to great success. The Wolves are 10-4 overall and 7-1 in the Packerland Conference behind senior guard Makayla Guilette's offensive prowess. Guilette is the only player on the team averaging double figures in points (18.1 points per game). Head Coach Mark Zastrow says Guilette is an undersized player in the post and she's very crafty in the paint. 




Coach Zastrow would like to see others on the team be a little more aggressive offensively, but is very happy to have Guilette leading the Wolves on that end of the floor.

Defense is there for Sturgeon Bay girls

Limiting opposing teams to under 50 points has been a major goal for the Sturgeon Bay girls basketball team. Although the Clippers were unable to meet that mark against Gibraltar on Monday, head coach Erik Tauschek is still happy with the result. Sturgeon Bay forced several turnovers throughout the night, showing quick hands and an ability to jump into passing lanes. Tauschek, who has previously said his team operates best when limiting teams to the 40-50 point range, said the game would have been a lot closer if not for his team's numerous turnovers.



The Clippers are 1-13 on the year and 1-8 in the Packerland Conference. The team has one more game this week, a home contest against conference powerhouse Kewaunee on Friday.

Packerland Conference Wrestling standings

Kewaunee and Southern Door are the top two teams in Packerland Conference wrestling at a very early stage in the season. Each squad is still undefeated and are likely headed towards a crash course for a conference championship duel when the two schools meet later this season.

High scoring games Monday in boys Packerland Conference basketball

Southern Door remains the class of the conference in Packerland boys basketball. The Eagles soared past Gibraltar 81-52 Monday. The three-headed scoring attack of Kyle Daoust (24 points), Ryan Claflin (17 points), and Derik LeCaptain (12 points) again paced Southern Door. Gibraltar had only one player reach double digits in scoring. Evan Henry led the Vikings with 11 points. 


Sturgeon Bay may have found their rhythm last night with an 88-47 win against Algoma. The Wolves could only tally 11 points in the second half against a tough Clippers defense. Sturgeon Bay was led by Carson Talbert's 20 points. Jake Schneider scored 19 points and Gunnar Tebon added 12 points in the win. Algoma was led by Zach Schmidt and Max Schuening with 10 points apiece.


Kewaunee eased past Sevastopol 70-49 in Institute last night. The Storm grew a nine-point first-half lead thanks to a balanced scoring attack. Kewaunee saw nine different players score in the win. Ryan Carmichael was their top scorer with 16 points. McCoy Walechka and Alex Rohr each scored 11 points in the win. The Pioneers had Brent Haberli lead the way with 15 points and Vidal Rosales chip in 12 points.


Peshtigo beat N.E.W. Lutheran 64-58. Sam Meerstein scored 26 in a road loss for the Blazers.

Kewaunee, Algoma & Gibraltar atop the Packerland Girls Basketball standings

Following Monday night's full slate of high school girls basketball games in the Packerland Conference, the current standings indicate there is a three-team race for the conference crown.  Kewaunee is still undefeated in the Packerland at (9-0) but Algoma (7-1) and Gibraltar (7-2) are right on their heels. Algoma was idle Monday night. The Vikings eased past Sturgeon Bay. 


Here is a look at the most up to date standings as provided by conference commissioner Mike Holtz:



SCHOOL                               WON              LOST

Gibraltar girls defeat Sturgeon Bay 58-34 on 105.1 The Viking

The Gibraltar girls basketball team carried just a 10-point lead going into halftime, but were eventually able to pull away from the Sturgeon Bay Clippers for a 58-34 victory. Struggling with turnovers in the first half, Gibraltar could not seem to get much offense going, although the defense held firm throughout the first half. Using quick hands to rack up steals and force bad passes, the Vikings were able to overcome their own turnovers and sent Sturgeon Bay into the half with only 18 points. Despite a quick bucket from Sarah Bridenhagen to start the second half, Gibraltar would show a much improved and much more disciplined side, scoring rapidly and quickly expanding the lead to a point the Clippers could not seem to recover from.  Point guard Abby Sitte said adjustments made in the locker room during half time reenergized the team.


Payton Pluff led all scorers on the night, picking up 18 points. Karlee Kita and Kayla Follingstad were just shy of the double-digit mark, scoring 9 each. For Sturgeon Bay, Bridenhagen led the way once again with 10 points, and Carley Wodack added 8 of her own. Winners of 8 straight and 6 straight conference games, Gibraltar will face a tough test as they meet Algoma this Friday. Sturgeon Bay, now 1-8 in conference play, will face a similar challenge as they welcome the conference-unbeaten Kewaunee to their home floor on the same night.

Girls' basketball recap: Kewaunee's streak continues

In addition to last night’s Gibraltar/Sturgeon Bay match-up on 105.1 The Viking, two other Packerland Conference games took place locally.


In Kewaunee, Sara Dax led all scorers with 35 points to lead the Storm to another conference victory, this time over Southern Door 71-40. Mackenzie Tlachac and Katherine Metzler each chipped in 15 points in the victory.  The Eagles were led by Kendra Dantoin (13 points) and Grace LeGrave (12) who each scored in the double figures on the evening.


In Green Bay, Sevastopol fell just short at NEW Lutheran 56-45 as they look for their first conference victory on the season. Zoe-Rose Kuehn led the Pioneers with 12 points while Grace Brauer and Amber Roalkvan added nine points apiece.


Peshtigo was five points better than Oconto 51-46. The Blue Devils lost on their home court Monday night.

Packers retain Pettine as Defensive Coordinator

The Green Bay Packers have retained Mike Pettine as defensive coordinator. Head Coach Matt LaFleur made the announcement.


Pettine served in the same position for the Packers last season, leading a defense that ranked No. 7 in the NFL in sacks per pass attempt (8.35 percent), with 16 different players recording at least a half-sack. It was the second most in team history (since 1982), trailing only the 1987 campaign (strike season) that featured 17 different players for Green Bay posting at least a half-sack. He helped lead the Packers to a No. 12 ranking in pass defense (234.5 yards per game) after the defense ranked No. 23 in the category in 2017. Green Bay was tied for No. 8 in the NFL with 44 sacks in 2018, the most by the Packers since 2013 (44). Last season, he also guided the Green Bay defense to a No. 9 ranking in three-and-out percentage (21.9) after the Packers ranked No. 26 in the category in 2017.


Pettine came to Green Bay after working as a consultant for the Seattle Seahawks in 2017. He previously worked as a defensive coordinator for the New York Jets (2009-12) and Buffalo Bills (2013) as well as two years as head coach for the Cleveland Browns (2014-15).


In his first season in Cleveland, Pettine guided the Browns to their most victories since 2007 as they led the league in opponent passer rating (74.1) and ranked No. 2 in interceptions (21). As a defensive coordinator with the Jets and Bills, he led his units to a top-10 finish in total yards allowed and passing yards allowed each season. In 2013, he helped the Bills rank No. 2 in the NFL with a franchise-record 57 sacks as Buffalo was the lone team in the league to have three players each register 10-plus sacks. During his four seasons with the Jets, the defense ranked No. 1 in the NFL over that span in opponent passer rating (71.0), completion percentage (52.6) and passing yards allowed per game (186.3).


Prior to being a defensive coordinator, Pettine spent seven seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, serving as a coaching and video assistant (2002), coaching assistant/quality control coach (2003), defensive assistant (2004) and outside linebackers coach (2005-08). He began his coaching career as an assistant (1988-92) for his father, Mike Sr., who was the head coach at Central Bucks West High School in his hometown of Doylestown, Pa. Pettine had a two-year stint in the college ranks as a defensive graduate assistant at the University of Pittsburgh (1993-94) before serving as the head coach at William Tennent High School (Warminster, Pa.) from 1995-96 and then at North Penn High School (Lansdale, Pa.) from 1997-2001.

A summary and detailed results from Coach Englebert about Saturday’s high school wrestling in New London...

Hello Everyone,
Yesterday we were at the Cutler Classic wrestling tournament in New London. This has always been a tough tournament, but this year a few extra teams were added making it even better. Our goal going in was to gain experience and get good mat time. Both the JV and Varsity wrestled hard and accomplished both goals. It was really good to see our young guys getting some wins and learning. For the more seasoned, but still young wrestlers, there were plenty of challenges.


Our top finisher was Grant Englebert placing 4th. After a nice first match where Grant worked on some technique, he had a rematch with Moravec from Wabeno Laona, who is currently ranked 4th at 152 in D3. After going 0-0 in the first period Grant rode out Moravec in the second to keep the score tied 0-0. In the third period it was Moravec staying not top to force overtime still ?at 0-0?. Grant had some opportunities in the overtime period to win but lost a tough take down and was defeated 2-0. In Grant’s next match, he was again able to fine tune some technique before earring his second pin. In his fourth match Grant faced Tyler Locke of Appleton East who came into the day undefeated. After losing the first take down, Grant nearly earned a reversal and near fall but was called out of bounds and awarded 1 point for an escape. Later in the first period Locke was called for an illegal slam which unfortunately ended the match. After some recovery time and testing with the trainers Grant was okay but still done for the day. Grant then defaulted the third place match which would have been a rematch with Moravec. Moravec had lost to Bryce Karban from Coleman 6-5. Karban is currently the 3 ranked wrestler in D3 at 152. Not the ending Grant was looking for but overall some of the best wresting he’s done this season. Good spot to work from heading into the end of the regular season.


Finishing 5th were Kyle Conard and Griffin Slezewski. Both guys had up and down days with wins and losses, but each ending with a win for fifth. The wins were convincing but work is needed to get closer in the losses. For Kyle the area to improve is the pace and confidence early in the match. He always had plenty of gas in the tank at the end of the match and typically outscores or stays even with his opponents in the third period. Griffin needs to be lighter on his feet with more attack.


Also, congratulations to the Tooley’s, Shaun and Brady. Both won their JV brackets.

Next week we have a home dual against Peshtigo on Thursday. Saturday is the Herb Tyler invite in Sheboygan North. JV is also at the Bay Port JV/MS Invite.

Erik Tauschek to be recommended as next Sturgeon Bay golf coach

A Sturgeon Bay coach might be adding a couple of teams to his schedule. Erik Tauschek, the current Sturgeon Bay girls basketball coach, will be formally recommended Wednesday at the next Board of Education meeting to succeed Kyle Retzlaff as the next coach of both the girls and boys golf team. Retzlaff will be leaving the position because of time commitments involved with starting a family. Todd Meikle, the athletic director, said he loves the idea of Tauschek taking over the role as he is a coach with lots of potential.



Tauschek will have help from assistants if he is approved as the next Sturgeon Bay golf coach. A couple of golf pros in the area have already stepped forward and volunteered their services, including a former Baylor University coach who has offered to help both the boys and girls golf teams when she is in the Door County area.

Gibraltar girls more confident than ever during conference winning streak

The Gibraltar girls basketball team is one of the teams to beat this season in the Packerland Conference. Winners of five straight conference games, the Vikings have adjusted brilliantly into the midseason despite an 0-2 conference start. Several of those wins have come against teams at or near the top of the conference, including Southern Door and Peshtigo. Head coach Josh Kropuenske said team morale is much higher than what he saw at the beginning of the season. He also said the team has turned things around after settling into new roles at the beginning of the season. 

Gibraltar will be tested in the next few weeks. On Monday, the Vikings will face a conference rival in Sturgeon Bay, before taking on conference leaders Kewaunee and Algoma in consecutive contests. The Storm and the Wolves are a combined 15-1 in Packerland Conference play this season.

UW-Green Bay women get conference win

The UW-Green Bay women’s basketball team knocked off Youngstown State by a final score of 60-42. The Phoenix are now 4-1 in Horizon League play and all alone in second place in the conference. A matchup at Detroit Mercy on Friday will be the next game for the Phoenix, tip-off at 6:00 PM. 

UW-Green Bay men fall

The UW-Green Bay men’s basketball team could not get a road win in Oakland. The Phoenix couldn’t hold a two-point halftime lead and fell 90-78 to the Oakland Golden Grizzlies. Green Bay was led by Cameron Hankerson who scored 19 points. Oakland’s Karmari Newman came off the bench to lead all scorers with 33 points. After a 3-0 start in the Horizon League, the Phoenix have now lost two straight, both on the road. They host IUPUI on Thursday night, tip-off at 7:00 PM.

Roleplayers help make Sturgeon Bay a more complete team

Sarah Bridenhagen leads the Sturgeon Bay girls basketball team in scoring at almost 13 points per game, but the Clippers have also seen solid production from other members of the team who specialize in other areas of the game. Head coach Erik Tauschek said while everyone on the team has something to contribute, there have been some standouts in certain spots. One name Tauschek mentioned was Brenna Zuehlke, a 5'7" senior forward who leads the teams in rebounds per game. Zuehlke has 40 offensive rebounds this season, nearly double the amount of the second-place Bridenhagen. Tauschek said she has the right mentality to play in the post.

Another player Tauschek mentioned was Carly Wodack, a sophomore guard who leads the team in assists at 25, again doubling the amount of the next-highest individual. He said she has a natural talent for finding open teammates. 

The Clippers will face some tough challenges this week, travelling to Gibraltar on Monday and then welcoming currently conference-unbeaten Kewaunee to Sturgeon Bay on Friday.

Door County co-op swim team looking to add Gibraltar

All four mainland districts in Door County will likely unite to compete as a single co-op team in both boys and girls swimming events. At the upcoming Sturgeon Bay Board of Education meeting, a motion to approve the addition of Gibraltar to the co-op swimming team of Sturgeon Bay, Sevastopol, and Southern Door will be recommended. If the recommendation goes through, Door County will essentially stand as its own team against other state rivals. Korey Mallien, the athletic director at Southern Door, said he believes that Door County will become one of the few quad co-op teams in the state, if not the only one.



If approved by all school districts involved, the team will change its name to Door County name to reflect the new team’s coverage of nearly the entire county. Todd Meikle, the athletic director at  Sturgeon Bay, said the name change reflects the coming together of all the mainland districts.



For Sturgeon Bay, there is no new board policy regarding coop sports teams to be reviewed as part of the change. The cooperative athletic document must be submitted to the WIAA by February 1st for the girls swim team, and by April 1st for the boys swim team. Mallien said both will be handled at the same time to reduce confusion.

Gibraltar closes in final stretch and defeats Sevastopol 71-69

Gibraltar boys head basketball coach Justin Burress has said previously he’s never had so many players willing to take important shots. This proved to be a deciding factor in Friday’s game, as three-pointers from Ryan Murphy, Spencer Krause, and Trevor Reinhardt erased a 5-point deficit in the closing minutes to defeat the Sevastopol Pioneers 71-69. The two teams played close throughout, with neither team able to pick up much of a lead before seeing it immediately erased. A 1-point game at the half, the second half saw a sense of urgency rise in both coaches as both teams applied pressure at both ends of the floor. Sevastopol was able to get one final shot off, but the three-quarter court attempt got sailed into the netting in the ceiling and fell around the three-point line to seal the game for Gibraltar. Now sitting at 4-2 in the Packerland Conference, Burress looked forward to the Vikings’ next game against conference-unbeaten Southern Door. He said the Eagles will attempt to spread the floor and speed up the tempo.



Reinhardt led the way in scoring for the Vikings on Friday, picking up 16 points. Murphy, Krause, and Evan Henry each reached 13 points as well. The Pioneers were led by their junior guards, as Brent Haberli picked up 25 points to lead all scorers. Robby Pollman added 22 points of his own.

Gibraltar girls not looking past non-conference matchup

A six-game winning streak will be put on the line Saturday as the Gibraltar girls basketball team takes on the Coleman Cougars of the Marinette & Oconto Conference. The Vikings have been on a roll as of late, picking up victories over Packerland Conference rivals Peshtigo and Sevastopol and claiming sole possession of third place in the conference with a 59-51 victory over Southern Door on Monday. The Cougars come into the contest with a 1-8 record and a 1-5 record in their own conference. Gibraltar head coach Josh Kropuenske said defeating Coleman will ultimately come down to how his team approaches the matchup. With games against conference leaders Kewaunee and Algoma in the future, he aslo said the team must not fall into the trap of looking ahead.


The Vikings and the Cougars will tip-off at 2:30 p.m. Gibraltar won last year's matchup 67-33.

Spartan boys fall to Marinette 75-73 on WBDK

Luxemburg-Casco Spartan boys’ basketball lost their sixth straight game in a heartbreaking 75-73 loss to the Marinette Marines Tuesday night in North Eastern Conference game in Luxemburg. The Spartans trailed by a much as 15 points in the second half before taking a brief lead with six minutes left.  Spartan sophomore Ryan Robillard hit a basket with under a minute to go in the game to tie the game at 75-75.  After a timeout, Matt Wagner hit a 15- foot jumper with only :07 left to give the Marine the lead.  Robillard missed a three-pointer from the top of the key before the buzzer as Marinette survived the Spartan comeback. 

Marinette was led in scoring by Jacob Poetzl with 25 points while Wagner finished with 21.  Anthony Otradovec hit six three-pointers to lead the Spartans along with Robillard for a team high 18 points.  Nathan Coisman returning from an ankle injury after missing four games added 15 points.

Sturgeon Bay coach pleased with effort despite loss to Algoma

Sturgeon Bay girls basketball head coach Erik Tauschek would've rather picked up the win, but was still satisfied with his team's effort during their 77-40 loss against Algoma Tuesday night. The Clippers fought hard but could not overcome the Wolves' press, which created turnovers and led to several quick and easy buckets for Algoma. However, Tauschek said he was pleased with the offensive production from his team nonethless, and said they would be in a good position moving forward if they could manage to limit second chances on the defensive side of the ball.


Sturgeon Bay is 1-11 on the year and 1-7 in conference play. The Clippers  will next compete in non-conference action when they meet Green Bay West on their home floor Friday. On Monday, another tough conference foe awaits the team as they travel to Gibraltar to take on the Vikings.

Sevastopol boys feeling confident after positive tournament showing

The Sevastopol Pioneers might be 1-5 in Packerland Conference play, but head coach Andy Symons is confident the team will turn things around following a positive showing at the Lena Tournament and in their first game of 2019. The team is carrying a three-game winning streak into tonight's contest with Gibraltar, with two wins coming against non-conference opponents Valley Christian and Stockbridge. The third win was a commanding 70-43 performance over Algoma for the Pioneers' first conference win of the season. Symons said the team's winning streak has fired up the boys heading into their first meeting with the Vikings.


The Pioneers are 4-6 on the season, while Gibraltar comes into tonight's game with a record of 3-4. Tonight's game will also be broadcasted live on 105.1 WSBW, with Connor Harbit and Jay Kita on the call. Pregame is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. before the 7:30 tipoff. 

Schiltz breaks scoring record in L-C win

Luxemburg-Casco's Cassie Schiltz's 26 points did more than just lead the Spartans to a 78-36 victory over Waupaca, but also to rewrite the record books. Schiltz took over the top spot in scoring from Rachel Porath during the night's contest. Jenna Jorgensen added 16 points and Lauren Adams scored 14 points in the Spartans victory. Nine different Spartans scored in the contest and hit six three-point shots, including four by Schiltz.

Gibraltar hosts Sevastopol tonight on WSBW

The Gibraltar Vikings will get a chance to further separate themselves from the .500 mark when they host the Sevastopol Pioneers Friday night. Gibraltar currently sits at 3-2 in the Packerland Conference, and are currently in a tie for third place with Kewaunee. Sevastopol is just 1-5 in the conference, but is riding a wave of momentum after picking up their first conference win on Monday, a 69-43 win over Algoma in which the Pioneers led by 30 points at the half. Gibraltar head coach Justin Burress said his team could not afford to look past its rival just because of their record.

Friday's game will be broadcasted live on 105.1 WSBW with pregame starting at 7 p.m. before tip-off at 7:30. Connor Harbit and Jay Kita will have the call.

Luxemburg-Casco boys hosts Marinette on WBDK

Luxemburg-Casco part of stacked-triple dual Friday

Eyes will be on Stratford Friday night as four top teams including Luxemburg-Casco match-up for what is destined to be an exciting night of wrestling. 


Division 3 champion Stratford, Division 2 champion Luxemburg-Casco, Division 1 runner-up Holmen, and Antigo will meet for an evening stacked with ranked wrestlers up and down the roster. The Spartans are coming off a 36-30 victory over Coleman last week, who routinely gives Stratford a run for their money in the team sectional for a chance at a berth at the state meet in Madison.


Wrestling action begins at 5 p.m. with weigh-ins taking place at 4 p.m.

Southern Door wrestling tops Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol 62-18

The dual was not short on forfeits, but Southern Door was able to pick up three wins in contested matches to cruise to a 62-18 victory against Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol. 


In front of a packed gym in Institute, the dual started at 170 pounds, but the first contested match was not until 285 pounds when Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol's Nick West was able to reverse Southern Door's Brodie Overbeck pick up a first-period pin. The forfeit parade started up and stopped at 126 pounds where Kyle Conard was able to get six points right back for the Eagles with a 3rd period pin over former teammate Ben Denamur. The match of the evening was at 132 pounds between Southern Door's Griffin Slezewski and Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol's Peyton Hurth which came down to the final moments of the third period. After Hurth was able to get a 6-5 lead, Slezewski was able to get an escape with under 20 seconds remaining to force overtime. The crowd hit a fever pitch when Hurth almost got a takedown that would have ended the match, Slezewski was able to slip out and take control to earn the 8-6 overtime victory. Drew DeFere picked up a 17-2 technical fall to close out the dual. Ten out of the 14 weight classes resulted in forfeits. In an exhibition match, Sam Abel collected a pin over Lauri Puupponen.


Southern Door earns their first Packerland win while Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol falls to 0-2 in the conference.



Gibraltar shows flexibility in win over Southern Door

In a pivotal matchup to determine who would claim sole possession of third place in the Packerland Conference, it was the Gibraltar girls basketball team that stepped up to the plate. The Vikings defeated the Eagles 59-51 on Tuesday, placing the team just one game behind Algoma in the race for second place in the conference. The win over Southern Door did not come easy, with several Vikings picking up fouls that head coach Josh Kropuenske attributed to fatigue in the second half. However, a switch to a zone defense helped tremendously as Gibraltar was able to fend off the Eagles down the stretch. Kropuenske said a big part of the team's success was due to pre-game preparation.


Gibraltar, now possessing a 7-4 record on the season and a 6-2 record in conference play, sits behind Algoma and Kewaunee in the Packerland Conference standings. A non-conference match-up with Coleman awaits the Vikings on Saturday before a meeting with Sturgeon Bay on Monday.

LC boys are experienced but led by sophomore

On a Luxemburg-Casco boys basketball team with eight seniors, a sophomore leads the squad in points. Ryan Robillard gives LC hope for the future of the program as he leads the team with 16 points per game. The sophomore guard got a chance to play as a freshman and has improved drastically from last year. Robillard has been fantastic from the outside shooting 38% from behind the three-point line. Head Coach Tyler Thrune says that even if his outside shot isn’t falling, Robillard can still contribute.



LC will try to stop its five-game losing streak when they host Marinette on Friday night. Listen to the game live on 96.7FM WBDK with the pregame show starting at 7:00 PM and tip-off at 7:30 PM. The game will also be streamed live at

Mark Murphy proud of his hire of LaFleur

Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy was beaming Wednesday as he revealed the 15th head coach in franchise history, Matt LaFleur. Murphy's excitement should be all Packers fans need to see to gauge what a big hire this is for the Green & Gold. 

Murphy told reporters in the Lambeau Field Atrium yesterday that LaFleur was the tenth of ten scheduled interviews and that the 39-year-old blew General Manager Brian Gutekunst, Executive Vice President Russ Ball and him away. The smile on Murphy and Gutekunst's faces yesterday was as big as LaFleur. 


No one was beaming as much as the new head coaches mother as she sat next to her husband and the new first lady of the Green Bay Packers. La Fleur's dad too was a football coach and Mark Murphy was sure to mention that during yesterday's press conference.


Murphy said LaFleur was by far the most organized and prepared of the candidates and his quiet confidence was something that drew the selection committee to him.


LaFleur said that coaching the Green Bay Packers is a true "dream job." He spoke of the importance of family and that he intends to bring excellence back to Green Bay.

County rivals battle in conference wrestling tilt

Southern Door and Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol meet for county bragging rights Thursday evening in their Packerland Conference wrestling tilt. It marks the first conference match of the season for Southern Door while Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol looks to rebound after a 71-6 loss to Kewaunee last week.


Southern Door is coming off a weekend tournament at Cedar Grove-Belgium and matchups against Gillett and Crivitz earlier this week. Drew Price took first place at the Rocket Scramble at 145 pounds, while Griffin Slezewski took second at 132. Austin Falish (113 lbs) and Grant Englebert (152) also finished in the top six. Southern Door took 12th in the 18-team tournament.


Wrestling in the same gym on Tuesday was Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol, days after competing in a tournament in Manawa. Jeremy Jorns was first at 182 going 5-0 with 4 pins and a 11-2 win. Placing second were Peyton Hurth at 132 going 4-1 and Nick West at 285 going 3-1. Placing 4th was Ben Denamur at 126 and David Condra going 3-2. Trevor Wilke was also 3-2 and placed 5th. Sam Able went 114 and placed 8th. 


Tim Kowols and Greg Letter will have the action beginning at 6:30 p.m. and the first whistle at 7 p.m. on 104.1 WRLU and streaming worldwide at  Kewaunee will wrestle Peshtigo in the conference's other Thursday dual as Oconto has the week off. 

Algoma girls defense leading team

The Algoma girls basketball team is having a really good season so far thanks to their stifling defense. The Wolves have allowed all but three of their twelve opponents to score under 50 points. Head Coach Mark Zastrow says the team restricts penetration into the lane and they switch all screens. Coach Zastrow has always had his teams switch picks which is something that has become the popular thing to do in the NBA now thanks to the Golden State Warriors success. Zastrow is not scared of the individual mismatches that may come by using that strategy.



Algoma is 9-4 overall and 7-1 in the Packerland Conference. The Wolves took sole possession of the second place in the conference after knocking off Southern Door on Friday and beat Sturgeon Bay on Tuesday. Their only conference loss of the year so far came against Kewaunee who is undefeated in the conference. Algoma will host Green Bay East on Thursday night, tip-off at 7:30 PM. 

Sevastopol girls looking for more offensive production

The Sevastopol girls basketball team is looking for more production on the offensive side of the floor. Coming off a 71-51 loss to Gibraltar in which the Pioneers tied their second-highest scoring mark of the season and won the second half, head coach Dan Judas has used the game as a benchmark to point out the strengths and weaknesses of his team. He said the game helped illustrate how his Pioneers can improve and stay in more games.

Sevastopol is 2-9 on the season and 0-8 in conference play. The Pioneers now face a rematch with Green Bay NEW Lutheran. The Blazers won the first game 63-42.

Final minutes most important to Gibraltar basketball success

Gibraltar boys basketball head coach Justin Burress is placing an increased emphasis on closing out contests as the season moves along. In a close conference that has seen many games come down to the wire this season, the Vikings have started focusing on game-closing scenarios in practice, including implementing drills to help further their understanding of what to do in a tight spot. Burress said the drills have given his players much more confidence moving forward. 


The Vikings currently sit in a tie for third-place with Kewaunee at 3-2 in the Packerland Conference. Gibraltar will stay at home for a meeting with Sevastopol on Friday before traveling to Southern Door to face the conference-unbeaten Eagles.

Packers make LeFleur hiring official

The Green Bay Packers have named Matt LeFleur the team’s 15th head coach. The hiring was announced Tuesday by President and Chief Executive Officer Mark Murphy.


“We are very excited to welcome Matt as the next head coach of the Green Bay Packers,” said Murphy. “We found a coach with the background and experience that we think will get us back to playing winning football.  We’re also excited about the person—he is bright with a great work ethic and a perfect fit for Green Bay and the organization.”


“Matt is smart, organized and has a great vision for the path forward for our team,” added Packers General Manager Brian Gutekunst. “His values and personality fit the culture of our organization. He has a tremendous ability to build relationships on multiple levels, which is a very important aspect in leading a football team.”


LaFleur (la-flew-er), 39, will be entering his 11th year coaching in the NFL and his 18th overall in coaching. He brings a wealth of offensive experience, having worked and developed under Mike Shanahan, Gary Kubiak, Kyle Shanahan and Sean McVay. LaFleur served as an offensive coordinator for both of the past two seasons (Tennessee Titans, 2018; Los Angeles Rams, 2017) and a quarterbacks coach for the previous seven years (Atlanta Falcons, 2015-16; Notre Dame, 2014; Washington Redskins, 2010-13).


In 2018 with the Titans, LaFleur led an offense that finished No. 7 in the NFL in rushing (126.4 yards per game) and helped QB Marcus Mariota set the franchise single-season record for completion percentage (68.9 percent). In 2017, LaFleur was part of a Rams team that improved its win total by seven games (from 4-12 in 2016 to 11-5 in 2017). The 2017 Rams were the first team in the Super Bowl era (since 1966) to go from last to first in the NFL in scoring in one season, more than doubling their scoring average from 14.0 points per game in 2016 to 29.9 points per game in 2017. Rams QB Jared Goff improved his quarterback rating from 63.6 in 2016 to 100.5 in 2017 to rank No. 5 in the NFL. LaFleur was part of an offensive staff that saw RB Todd Gurley named The Associated Press Offensive Player of the Year after leading the NFL with 2,093 scrimmage yards.


In two years as the quarterbacks coach for the Falcons, LaFleur worked with Matt Ryan, who ranked in the top 10 in the NFL over that span (min. 500 pass att.) in passer rating (No. 2 – 102.1), passing yards (No. 2 – 9,535), completion percentage (No. 4 – 67.9), completions (No. 5 – 780) and passing touchdowns (No. 8 – 59). In 2016, Ryan led the Falcons to an appearance in the Super Bowl while being named AP NFL Most Valuable Player and Offensive Player of the Year after recording the fifth-highest single-season passer rating (117.1) in league history and the highest passing-yardage total (4,944) in team history.


In a one-year stop at Notre Dame in 2014, LaFleur guided QB Everett Golson to 3,445 yards passing and 29 touchdowns. Prior to his stint in South Bend, LaFleur coached for the Redskins from 2010-13, where he helped Robert Griffin III become the first Redskins rookie QB selected to the Pro Bowl as Washington won its first NFC East title (2012) in 13 years. LaFleur’s first NFL coaching experience came as an offensive assistant for the Houston Texans in 2008-09, where he worked with the quarterbacks and wide receivers.


Before coaching in the NFL, the Mount Pleasant, Mich., native coached in the college ranks for six seasons. LaFleur began his coaching career in 2003 as an offensive assistant at Saginaw Valley State, the school he played quarterback for and guided to three straight NCAA Division II playoff appearances. He went on to be a graduate assistant at Central Michigan in 2004-05, quarterbacks/wide receivers coach at Northern Michigan in 2006 and offensive coordinator at Ashland University in 2007-08.


LaFleur and his wife, BreAnne, have two sons, Luke and Ty.

Algoma, Gibraltar and Kewaunee all winners Tuesday in girls basketball

In Packerland Conference girls basketball Tuesday night, Algoma beat Sturgeon Bay 77-40. MaKayla Guilette scored a season-high 33 points in the win. Teammates Sierra Nessinger and Hanna Wiese added 12 points in the win. Sturgeon Bay was led by Ashley Alberts' 10 points and Sarah Bridenhagen with nine points.


Gibraltar won a big game in Fish Creek Tuesday 59-51 over Southern Door. Payton Pluff led the Vikings with 21 points. Abbi Sitte chipped in 14 points in the win. Southern Door's balanced attack saw Grace LeGrave lead the team with 13 points, Hailey Shimon amassed 12 points and Tehya Bertrand added ten.



Kewaunee returned to form against Sevastopol with a 71-36 win. The Storm kept a strong hold on first place in the conference with the convincing victory. Zoe Kuehn tallied 11 points and Amber Roalkvan added 10 points in the loss.

Packerland Conference filled with evenly-matched teams

It has been a wild ride for the nine teams in the Packerland Conference this season, and with just over half the season left to go, all postseason seeds are up for grabs. Sturgeon Bay boys basketball coach Jim Benesh said the unpredictability of games in the conference has made for an exciting 2018-2019 season. Numerous upsets and close contests have made the upper half of the conference standings a revolving door, as several teams try to climb above the .500 mark. Benesh said outside of the top two teams, Southern Door and Peshtigo, there is no way of knowing which team in any given contest will come out on top.


In the same vein, Gibraltar boys basketball head coach Justin Burress said he’s been intrigued by some of the results that have come across the score line.

All the teams in the Packerland Conference are slowly easing back into action, with several games already completed since the return from break.

Southern Door wrestlers sweep pair of duals

The Southern Door Eagles took advantage of two short-handed wrestling teams to pick up a pair of victories Tuesday night in Gillett. Here is what head coach Jerry Englebert said about the matches:


"SD 60 Gillett Suring 12
Winning by pin were Drew Price and Brodie Overbeck 


SD 54 Crivitz 21
Winning by pin were Angel Cardos and Thomas Grosbeier. 


Both opponents were short of wrestlers and gave up several forfeits which allowed us to put some backup wrestlers in on varsity to gain experience and they did well."


Southern Door and Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol shared a bus to the meet. The two teams will wrestle each other on Thursday at Sevastopol with the first varsity matches beginning at 7 p.m. WRLU 104.1 will carry the match live with Tim Kowols and Greg Letter on the call beginning at 6:30 p.m. with the pre-match show.


Packers hire Matt LeFleur as Head Coach

Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Matt LeFleur is taking a big step in his young coaching career. The 39-year-old is reportedly Mike McCarthy's replacement as "Leader of the Pack." The 15th head coach in the history of the franchise has zero head coaching experience in the NFL but apparently blew the interviewing committee away.


While the name may be very unfamiliar with Packers fans, the offensive-minded coach must be given time to succeed. Despite shaky results in Tennessee last year, LeFleur did not have Aaron Rodgers leading his offense. The Titans were 27th in points scored in the NFL in 2018. That number has many concerned. However, the LA Rams offense he was apart of in 2017 led by Jared Goff excelled with LeFleur's assistance.


The announcement has not yet been made by the Packers but is expected soon. A press conference welcoming the new head coach will likely occur this week and will be there to bring you closer to the next head coach of the Green Bay Packers.

Southern Door & Sevastopol boys basketball win big Monday night

Southern Door boys basketball continued their perfect conference streak Monday night with an impressive 63-38 win over rival Sturgeon Bay. The Eagles controlled the entire game with Kyle Daoust leading the way with 29 points. Ryan Claflin scored 16 points in the win. Carson Talbert was the lone bright spot for Sturgeon Bay. He scored 18 points but got very little help elsewhere.



Sevastopol picked up a big win against Algoma last night 69-43. Robby Pollman scored 22 points. Johnny Jorns, Brent Haberli and Arthur Hocevar each added 13 points in the win. Algoma failed to get a player into double digits in points scored. The Pioneers defense allowed only seven first-half points to the Wolves.

Kewaunee suffers first setback against Wrightstown

The Kewaunee girls basketball team suffered their first loss of the season Monday, falling 70-57 to Wrightstown on the road Monday. A slow start ultimately doomed the Storm, entering the second stanza down 49-30. The Tigers' Ella Diny led all scorers with 27 points on the evening. The Storm was led by Sara Dax (23 points) and Mackenzie Tlachac (12 points) offensively. It will be a quick turnaround for the Storm as they host the Sevastopol Pioneers Tuesday night.

Kewaunee has revenge on the mind

Many players on the Kewaunee girls basketball team remember the last two times they faced off against Wrightstown. Two years ago, Wrightstown knocked the Storm out of the playoffs in overtime 60-57. Sara Dax was a sophomore for Kewaunee and she scored 15 points in the loss. Dax is now a senior. Last year the Tigers blew the Storm out on Kewaunee's home floor 68-41. The two teams will meet again on Monday night, and Wrightstown is really good again coming in to the game at 7-2 overall. Lynn Geier, head coach of the Storm girls, says her team doesn't need any extra motivation for this game. 




Geier added that she will have to watch how many minutes each Storm girl plays in the Wrightstown game since it'll be the start of a stretch of three games in four nights. Kewaunee follows the Wrightstown game the very next night against Sevastopol.

Luxemburg-Casco wrestling overcomes Coleman

The Luxemburg-Casco wrestling team faced perhaps one of its biggest challenges Friday but were ultimately able to come out on top as they defeated Coleman 36-30. The Spartans jumped out to an early lead with Travis LeGrave and Hunter Joniaux picking up wins over their counterparts. A key forfeit at 113 pounds also helped Luxemburg-Casco pick up a much-needed 6 points. Although Coleman would win the final two matches of the night, gaining 8 points back on the Spartans, the lead was too much to recover from. Luxemburg-Casco's varsity squad will next compete in a quad meet alongside Stratford, Holmen and Antigo.

The Viking allowed only seven field goals in the second half. Caleb Moe led the Blue Devils in scoring with 14 points. Josh Woller added 11 points for Oconto.

Sturgeon Bay boys led by guard-forward duo

Two seniors have made a significant impact on the court for the Sturgeon Bay boys basketball team this season. Point guard Mitchell Jackson and forward Carson Talbert have proven to be the off-court and on-court leaders for the Clippers, guiding the team to a 4-4 start during the first half of the season. Talbert leads the team in points and rebounds per game with Jackson following close behind in both categories. However, Jackson is a four-year player that does lead the team in assists. Head coach Jim Benesh said Jackson’s experience makes him a key player in the program.



As for Talbert, Benesh said his versatility has made him a threat to opposing teams.



The Clippers are 3-3 in the Packerland Conference and will return to the court January 5th against Shawano with Southern Door to follow.

Kewaunee wrestling storms past Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol 71-6

The Kewaunee Storm topped Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol 71-6 in the first Packerland Conference match of the season for the two teams.


Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol battled with only seven wrestlers, virtually putting a team victory out of reach before the first whistle even blew. Kewaunee's Travis Reinke dealt Jeremy Jorns only his second loss of the season in a close 3-1 decision at 182 pounds. Jason Reinke followed suit with a 4-0 decision one weight class later followed by a pin by Paul Wery at 285. Kewaunee also picked Austin Veeser and Mason Jeanquart also had back to back pins at 138 pounds and 145 pounds while Jack Severin picked up a 17-2 technical fall. Peyton Hurth got the only win on the evening for Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol on a first period pin.



Area wrestling Friday night includes a matchup of two of the state's most successful programs when Luxemburg-Casco hits the road to battle Coleman.  On Saturday teams in Door and Kewaunee counties are on the move to tournaments as the Spartans head back on the road and join Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol to wrestle at Little Chute, Southern Door goes to Cedar Grove-Belgium, and Kewaunee battles at Manawa. 

Eagles prevail over Spartans 75-71 on WBDK

The Southern Door Eagles hung on and defeated the Luxemburg-Casco Spartans 75-71 at home Thursday night in a non-conference game.  The Eagles led by as much as 15 points in the first half before the Spartans were able to close to within 39-33 at intermisison.  Ryan Robillard scored 15 of his team-high 20 points to keep L-C in the game even with Nathan Coisman sitting out the game with an ankle injury. 


The Spartans came out in the second half on fire and took a 49-45 lead with about 12 minutes left in the game.  Southern Door (6-2) responded quickly to retake the lead and then converted on 12 of 15 free throws down the stretch to come away with the hard-fought victory.  The Eagles were led by Ryan Claflin and Kyle Daoust who scored 27 and 26 points, respectively.  Daoust hit 7-7 free throws in the last two minutes to salt the game away.


Luxemburg-Casco  (5-3 overall) will travel to Freedom in a Northeastern Conference game Friday night .  The next L-C boys game broadcast on 96.7FM WBDK will be next Friday, January 11 at home against Marinette.  

L-C girls 2004 championship revisited

The Luxemburg-Casco girls basketball coach reminisced about the 2004 state championship team. Current LC Head Coach Jeff Jodar was an assistant under the legendary Mike Schanhofer in 2004. The Spartans beat Richland Center 59-51 in the championship game. Three players combined from both teams ended up playing together in college at UW-Green Bay; Trisha Legois and Rachel Porath from L-C and Erin Templin from Richland Center. Coach Jodar said it was a special feeling to win it all especially after losing in heartbreaking fashion in the playoffs the last couple of seasons before.

Sturgeon Bay girls reenergized for 2019

Winter break can have quite an effect on unsuspecting teams, but Sturgeon Bay girls basketball coach Erik Tauschek believes his team will come out looking better than ever in 2019. Although the team did pick up a loss in its final game of 2018, a 56-33 loss to Chilton, Tauschek said the girls have worked hard throughout the break to maintain their form heading in to the first couple of weeks of the new year.  At the individual level, Sarah Bridenhagen has been excellent on the court for Sturgeon Bay, leading the team in points per game and sitting second in both rebounds and assists. Tauschek said Bridenhagen will likely have to deal with teams gameplanning against her moving forward.



The Clippers are currently 1-9 on the season, with the lone victory coming against Sevastopol. The team returns to the court on Saturday for a matchup against a 2-3 Two Rivers squad.

Conference wrestling opens in Kewaunee

Kewaunee's quest to make it two straight Packerland Conference crowns begins Thursday night when they host Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol.

Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol on the other hand is coming off last weekend's Lourdes Academy On the Water Tournament. Jeremy Jorns has been nearly perfect this season, losing only once in over 20 matches at 182 pounds.


Thursday's match begins at 7 p.m.

Spartan boys renew rivalry with Eagles on WBDK tonight

Tonight's game tips off at 7:30 in Fish Creek. 

Perfect Storm still working hard

The seemingly perfect Kewaunee girls basketball team is still working hard in practice. The Storm are finishing up the winter break after going 9-0 and 6-0 in the Packerland Conference to start the year. Head Coach Lynn Geier is very pleased with how the team has been practicing during the break and the whole season. 


Even with the perfect record, Geier says the team can still improve. The veteran coach says she would like to see the team make better defensive rotations and grab more rebounds. The Storm girls have a tall team but boxing out is most important.



The Storm girls come back from break on Friday when they travel to Peshtigo (5-5 overall, 3-3 conference). Tip-off is at 7:30 PM.

Gibraltar basketball in heated race heading into 2019

The Gibraltar boys’ basketball team sits in a three-way tie for fifth in the Packerland conference, but that does not negate what has been a solid season for the Vikings thus far. The conference continues to be a tough crowd, with several teams huddling around the .500 mark in conference play, and with all of them looking to gather momentum heading into 2019. Head coach Justin Burress has been pleased with the offensive production of the team, and especially with the prospect of having multiple threats to score when needed.



Gibraltar currently sits at 2-4 on the season and 2-2 in Packerland Conference play. The Vikings will face a tough test almost immediately following the new year, with Oconto (5-3) and Peshtigo (6-2) looking to deny Gibraltar a place in the upper half of the conference standings. Gibraltar returns to the court on January 3rd.
