Clippers beat Wolves highlights Thursday's girls hoops recap

Sturgeon Bay girls basketball earned quite possibly their biggest victory in a decade last night. A 47-27 win over Algoma is the type of win that could start to turn a program around. The Clippers have been marred in futility for over a decade since the likes of Sierra Spaude, Lauren McCormick, Jennifer Nesbitt and fellow classmates led the Clippers.

 

On Thursday it was Sarah Bridenhagen leading the way. She tallied 19 points to lead all scorers. Kenzye Hassenjager added 12 points. Coach Eric Taushek said, "Our seniors led us tonight, Brenna Zuehlke, Anna Fischer and Kenzye Hassenjager.

 

Taushek continued, "This is a huge win for the program and something as a team we can build on. The girls gave everything they had last night. The girls proved to themselves that we can play and beat anyone on any given night. The underclassmen we’re able to a part of this and see how much fun this was, it didn’t come easy, but the hard work they put in tonight was definitely worth it. I am extremely proud of the girls it was a great night of basketball for the Sturgeon Bay program!"

 

 

Kewaunee wrapped up an undefeated run in the regular season to win the Packerland Conference championship without a blemish on their record. The Storm topped Sevastopol 48-33. Zoe Kuehn led the Pioneers with 13 points and Amber Roalkvan added 11 points in the loss.

 

Southern Door fell to Gibraltar 57-43. Payton Pluff led all scorers with 18 points. Karlee Kita and Sage Krause added 11 points apiece in the win. Grace LeGrave led the Eagles with 12 points. 

Aissen plants roots at Hillsdale

Luxemburg-Casco's Garrit Aissen announced Thursday he will continue his football career at Hillsdale College in Michigan. He made it official by signing his National Letter of Intent with family, friends, and school officials present. The newest Charger quarterback was recently honored by the high school for his records in passing yards, touchdown passes, completions, and attempts. Aissen joins a team coming off a 10-3 season, a conference championship and an appearance in the NCAA Division II Regional semifinal game. 

 

 

Winter storm forces short turn around for basketball

Local basketball teams have had to cram a lot of games this week due to recent winter storms canceling school. Many are playing their second game in two nights with some playing three or four games this week just to fit in their schedule before tournament play starts next week for the girls and the following week for the boys.

 

In girls' basketball, Luxemburg-Casco hits the road to face Oconto Falls, Sturgeon Bay hosts Oconto, and Sevastopol travels to Reedsville.

 

Boys' basketball action tonight includes Kewaunee hosting Oconto, Gibraltar playing at home against Peshtigo, Sevastopol traveling to Algoma, and Southern Door looking to stay perfect in conference play at Sturgeon Bay. Boys' games start at 7:30 p.m.

Boys' basketball round-up: Sturgeon Bay earns cross county win

A busy night in boys' basketball yielded one win for local teams.

Gibraltar's Evan Henry drilled six three-pointers en route to a 22 point evening, but it was not enough to hold off the NEW Lutheran Blazers in a 63-54 defeat.  Andras Szakala and Trevor Reinhardt each added 12 points in the loss.

 

Luxemburg-Casco could not overcome a 29-16 first-half deficit on the way to a 66-47 loss to Freedom. No Spartans player scored in double figures with Dylan Hanson and Nathan Coisman leading the team with just seven points apiece.

Phoenix grind out victory over Grizzlies

Three Phoenix players scored in double figures to lead Green Bay to a 66-54 victory over Oakland Thursday night.  Shanquan Hemphill led all Phoenix players with 13 points en route to his second double-double of the season. It was a defensive showcase for two teams used to letting their offenses shine.

The Phoenix host their second Motor City team in three days Saturday when they battle Detroit-Mercy at noon. 

Algoma boys basketball falls to Peshtigo

Kewaunee falls in Team Sectional semi-final

The Kewaunee Storm saw their hopes to advance to the Team State Wrestling Championships dashed for the second year in a row in the semi-final round Wednesday night. The Storm fell to the shorthanded Princeton Tigers 37-32. Starting the evening at 182 pounds, Travis Reinke and Paul Wery were able to stake the Storm to an early 10-0 lead. After the Tigers won the next three matches, the Storm captured points in four straight weight classes, anchored by a major decision by Jack Severin. Those would prove to be the final points on the evening for the Storm, dropping the final five matches. The Tigers would almost pull off the improbable in the final, but lost to eventual champion Random Lake. The Storm's season continues this Saturday at the individual sectional meet.

Irish stop Spartans in Team Sectional finals

The Freedom Irish won eight of the 13 contested matches in the WIAA Division 2 Team Wrestling Sectional final Wednesday night to prevent Luxemburg-Casco from making a third straight appearance at state. 

 

After they were able to dispatch Winneconne in the semifinal 53-24, the Spartans were not able to carry over the momentum against their conference rival. Starting at 113 pounds, the Irish and the Spartans traded victories the first four matches before Reece Manteuffel and Ben Bredael registered pins to give Freedom a 20-7 advantage. A late escape prevented Nathan Ronsman from getting a critical major decision before Freedom's Sam Peters collected a technical fall against fellow state-ranked wrestler Colton Worachek. Reece Worachek and Garrett Jeanquart would get the last two contested decisions for the Spartans before the Irish won three of the final four weights to secure the sectional championship. Bryce Bosman, Reece Worachek, Lucas Joniaux, Ronsman, and Jeanquart all collected a pair of wins on the evening. Next up for seven Spartans wrestlers is the individual sectional tournament this weekend.

The Vikings have gone 3-2 in a stretch that has included Packerland Conference leader Kewaunee and Marinette and Oconto Conference leader Crivitz. Head coach Josh Kropuenske said a stretch where the girls play several tough opponents is ideal for the playoffs ahead.

 

 

The Vikings have one more game left to go in the regular season, traveling to Brussels to take on Southern Door.

The Luxemburg-Casco Spartans look to make it back to the UW Field House for a third year in a row when they wrestle Winneconne and the winner of Freedom/Tomahawk at the WIAA Team Sectional meet Wednesday night in Brillion.

 

The Spartans are coming off a regional championship in Valders Saturday, boasting seven sectional qualifiers and edging #2 Wrightstown 226-211 in the team scores. Nathan Ronsman, Reece Worachek, and Colton Worachek earned titles while Hunter Joniaux, Lucas Joniaux, Bryce Bosman, and Kyle Kroll earned spots with runner-up finishes. The Wolves earned their spot in the team sectional by posting 205 points in the Little Chute regional, qualifying five wrestlers for the next round. Caleb Meunier, Anthony Keuntjes, and Evan Miller all won individual titles.

 

The winner takes on the victor in the other semifinal featuring conference rival Freedom and Tomahawk. Freedom is sending 12 to individual sectionals this weekend one year after the Spartans topped the Irish in last year's sectional semifinal 37-23. The Hatchets had 11 sectional qualifiers. 

 

Tim Kowols and Luxemburg-Casco coaching legend Bob Berceau will have the call on 96.7 WBDK beginning at 5:30 p.m. with the pre-match show followed by the first whistle at 6 p.m. If the Spartans win, the next match will be carried live on 96.7 WBDK beginning at 8 p.m.

 

 In other local wrestling, Kewaunee will travel to Markesan for their Division 3 team sectional duals. Kewaunee saw seven of its wrestlers qualify for sectionals, earning 234.5 points and the edge over Reedsville. Taking first place at their weight classes for the Storm included Jack Severin, Paul Wery, Nathan VanGoethem, Dylan Steinhorst, and Travis Reinke. Logan Steinhorst and Max Severin earned their slots with runner-up finishes. Their reward is facing Princeton before facing the winner of Kenosha Christian Life and Random Lake.

Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way with a double-double, scoring 29 points while securing 17 rebounds. The Bulls, led by Zach Lavine's 27 points, entered the second half down by one and at times keep their deficit at single digits. That's when the Bucks defense would clamp down, forcing the Bulls to shoot 38 percent and grab eight more defensive rebounds. The Bucks improve to 42-14 on the season as their road trip takes them to Indianapolis Wednesday night to take on the Indiana Pacers. 

Mustangs pull away from Spartans 88-69 on WBDK

Gibraltar girls defeat Crivitz 48-32 on 105.1 WSBW

The Gibraltar girls basketball team defeated a tough non-conference opponent on Sunday, overcoming Crivitz 48-32 at the Menominee Nation Arena in Oshkosh.

 

Although the game started out with both teams trading baskets, with Gibraltar's Karlee Kita and Crivitz's Chloe Gruszynski getting out to particularly hot starts, Gibraltar would take a lead about a quarter of the way into the first half and never looked back. A stifling defense looked even more comfortable than usual on the larger court and forced several Wolverine turnovers that led to points on the other end of the court.

 

Halftime would come with the Vikings leading 31-18, and although the offensive production would slow for both teams in the second half, Gibraltar kept a steady enough pace to maintain the lead and take the 16-point victory.

 

Payton Pluff had another excellent performance for Gibraltar, leading all scorers with 18 points. Abby Sitte added 8 points, but her greatest contribution in other areas. The 5'4" guard picked up 11 boards and 8 assists to lead the team in both categories. Gruszynski would end the game with 15 points to lead the Wolverines.

 

The victory improves Gibraltar's record to 13-6 on the season, while Crivitz drops to 14-5 on the year. Gibraltar will play three more games this week, starting with their Senior Night game against Sevastopol on Monday. Chilton and Southern Door await the Vikings later this week.

The Vikings have lost two of their last three, but head coach Josh Kropuenske is not worried and said he thought his team has played well despite the minor setbacks. He said the key factor for Sunday's contest would be finding out who can best adjust to the larger court.

The Bucks were outscored in every quarter by the Magic, who were led by Jonathan Isaac’s 17 points. Eric Bledsoe had 19 points in the loss. Milwaukee still has the NBA’s best record at 41-14. Their next game is Monday night in Chicago against the Bulls, tip-off at 7:00 PM.

With just one more week left to go in the season, the Sturgeon Bay girls basketball team with optimism that they can make a run into the postseason.

He said that after all the seeds have been given out, the regular season can be considered just a long tune-up session. 

 


The Clippers (2-18, 2-12) will play two games this week as they prepare for the postseason. The team will host Oconto (9-11, 5-9) on Tuesday before a Valentine's Day showdown with Algoma (13-6, 10-3).

Gibraltar girls will need to adjust to larger court

When the Gibraltar girls basketball team takes the court on Sunday, it will be on a larger court than they are accustomed to. The Vikings will be meeting Crivitz for a non-conference neutral-site matchup at the Menominee Nation Arena in Oshkosh. The contest will feature two teams with positive records both on the season and within their own conference, with the Wolverines sitting in first-place in the Marinette and Oconto Conference. Head coach Josh Kropuenske said the larger court will need to be adjusted to, but also pointed out the girls would need to get used to it anyway if they are to achieve the ultimate goal this season.

 


Crivitz did lose their last game 65-62 to Bonduel, but their junior guard Chloe Gruszynski (17.9 PPG) might prove to be a problem for Gibraltar. The game will follow the conclusion of an NBA G-League matchup between the Wisconsin Herd and the Canton Charge. The Herd are the G-League affiliate of the Milwaukee Bucks, while the Charge are affiliated with the Cleveland Cavaliers. 
 

Sevastopol girls get first taste of Saturday basketball

The Sevastopol girls basketball team will get to experience their first Saturday game this season when they head to Peshtigo. The Pioneers (4-14, 0-13) will look to pick up their first conference win this season against a Bulldogs (9-8, 7-5) team that has established itself around the .500 mark. Head coach Dan Judas said he isn't bothered by having to travel on a non-school day. He said his team would still show up and try to claim a victory in a tough Packerland Conference.

 


Saturday's contest is the second meeting between Sevastopol and Peshtigo. The Bulldogs won the first contest 50-38 in a game that saw two players pick up half of all the points. Lianna Baxter led all scorers with 25 for Peshtigo, while Sevastopol's Amber Roalkvan picked up 19.

Packers add Butkus & Stewart to coaching staff

The Green Bay Packers have named Luke Butkus assistant offensive line coach and Rayna Stewart special teams quality control coach. Head Coach Matt LaFleur made the announcements Thursday.

 

Butkus comes to Green Bay after serving as the offensive line coach for the University of Illinois for the past three seasons (2016-18), a position he also held for the Fighting Illini in 2012. Between the two stints at his alma mater, he was the assistant offensive line coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars (2013-15). Butkus, the nephew of former Chicago Bears linebacker and Pro Football Hall of Famer Dick Butkus, worked as a quality control assistant for the Seattle Seahawks (2010-11) and as an offensive assistant/assistant offensive line coach for the Bears (2007-09). He began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at the University of Oregon (2005-06). As a player, Butkus was a two-time All-Big Ten selection at center and served as a captain of the 2001 Big Ten championship team. He had stints in the NFL with Chicago (2002) and the San Diego Chargers (2003), while also playing in NFL Europe with the Cologne Centurions (2002) and Rhein Fire (2003).

 

Stewart brings experience across numerous levels of football to Green Bay. He has spent the past four seasons at Vanderbilt, first as director of player development (2015-17) and then as special teams quality control coach (2018). Stewart was a defensive quality control coach with the Tennessee Titans from 2009-11, a graduate assistant at Northwestern University from 2007-08 and a training-camp intern for the Indianapolis Colts in 2004. He also worked as an athletic director, coach and teacher at high schools in Tennessee and Illinois. As a player, Stewart was a two-time All-America cornerback at Northern Arizona University and was selected in the fifth round (No. 143 overall) of the 1996 NFL Draft by the Houston Oilers. He played in 71 career games as a defensive back for the Oilers (1996-97), Miami Dolphins (1998) and Jacksonville Jaguars (1999-2000).

Wrestlers enter important stretch as regionals loom

Wrestlers in Door and Kewaunee counties enter their most important stretch of the season when the state tournament series begins on Saturday.  

 

Luxemburg-Casco looks to punch a third consecutive trip to the team sectional when it heads to Valders. The Spartans face tough competition from teams like Two Rivers, Wrightstown, and Denmark while other squads like Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol, Brillion, and Valders have individuals good enough to play spoilers in the final tally. The winner of the Valders Regional would head to Brillion for the team sectional on February 12th.

 

Kewaunee could make it two in a row when they travel to Southern Door for its regional tournament. The Storm fell in the sectional semi-final last year while Southern Door advance three to the individual sectional. Winnebago Lutheran, Lourdes Academy, Mischicot, and Reedsville will join the Storm and the Eagles for a chance to qualify for the team sectional on February 12th in Markesan.

Phoenix men's, women's teams get victories

The Green Bay Phoenix men's and women's basketball teams started off their weekend slates on high notes Thursday night.

 

On the men's side, the Phoenix started strong and ended even better in its 82-65 win over Cleveland State on the road. The team shot above 53 percent as a team, led by Sandy Cohen's 18 points. The Phoenix also turned in an impressive defensive performance, keeping the Vikings scoreless for over the final five minutes of the game. Its next game is Saturday at Youngstown State.

 

The march towards first place continued at the Kress Center where the Phoenix women beat Northern Kentucky 70-42. In her second game back from injury, Frankie Wurtz led the Phoenix with 13 points. The Phoenix were menacing on defense forcing 23 turnovers, including 14 steals. Its next game is Saturday against current Horizon League leader Wright State. 

Another game postponed for the Gibraltar boys

Yet another game has been postponed for the Gibraltar boys basketball team, with Thursday's matchup against Green Bay NEW Lutheran being canceled following another round of winter weather. With the weather predicted to clear up for Friday, the team will likely be back in action Friday against Peshtigo. The Vikings and Bulldogs are yet to meet this season after their first two scheduled meetings were canceled due to poor weather. Head coach Justin Burress said that while most of his scouting and planning had gone into Thursday's game, Peshtigo's athleticism and talent this season cannot be overlooked.

 


Gibraltar is 7-7 on the season and 5-5 in the Packerland Conference. Thursday's cancellation will only continue to clog up a busy end-of-season schedule that already features seven games in two weeks.
 

Gibraltar girls show resolve after streak-breaking loss

The Gibraltar girls basketball team saw their nine-game winning streak snapped at the hands of the still-unbeaten Kewaunee Storm Monday, but the team has quickly returned to their winning ways. In their turnaround matchup Tuesday against Oconto, the girls quickly returned to form. The Vikings defeated the Blue Devils 54-37 to sweep the season series and fend off third-place conference challenger Algoma for another day. Although the first half started off slowly, head coach Josh Kropuenske said his team was quick to shake off any leftover feelings from Monday's loss.

 


With Tuesday's victory, Gibraltar sits at 12-5 on the season and 10-3 in Packerland Conference play. The Vikings will head to Peshtigo on Friday before meeting a non-conference foe in Crivitz for a neutral-site game at the Menominee Nation Arena in Oshkosh.
 

Badgers win defensive battle with Minnesota

The 19th ranked Wisconsin Men's Basketball team survived a 56-51 victory over Minnesota last night. "The Barn" in Minneapolis was rocking Thursday and played a factor in a close game throughout for the "Border War." 

 

The Badgers were led by Ethan Happ. The senior forward scored a team-high 15 points and led the team in rebounds with 13. Brad Davison was the only other Badger to score in double digits. Davison finished with 10 points.

 

Minnesota's big men played tough. Jorday Murphy scored 16 points and Daniel Oturu added 12 points in the loss.

 

Wisconsin next travels to #7 Michigan to take ion the Wolverines Saturday at 11:00 AM.

Green Bay men on the road, women finish homestand

After both teams called the Kress Center home last weekend, the Green Bay men's and women's basketball teams kick off a full weekend of action Thursday night.

 

The Phoenix men head back on the road for a swing through Ohio to face Cleveland State and Youngstown State. The Phoenix beat both teams at home earlier this season, but it has been the road keeping the men down as they continue to fight for tournament seeding. Thursday's game against Cleveland State begins at 6 p.m.

 

The women's team can get into a tie for first place in the Horizon League with a weekend sweep of Northern Kentucky and Wright State. Both teams have proven to be tough tests for the Phoenix, including the Raiders taking the first contest 85-67. The Kress Center has been kind to the Phoenix the last five years, going 38-3 in conference play during that stretch. Thursday's game against Northern Kentucky starts at 7 p.m. 

Winter storm cancels high school sporting events

The weather the last two weeks has been the toughest opponent local teams have faced this season after a winter storm canceled yet another night of high school athletics. Schools across Wisconsin were forced to cancel classes and after-school activities Thursday due to icy conditions that are expected to worsen throughout the day. Nine games are affected, including a third attempt to broadcast the Luxemburg-Casco girls' basketball team's game against conference rival Marinette. Wrestlers also lose another day of practice leading up to this weekend's WIAA Regional Tournaments held across the area including Southern Door. 

Bucks explode in win over Wizards

The Milwaukee Bucks put up 50 points in the first quarter en route to a 148-129 win over the Washington Wizards Wednesday night. The trade deadline dealt blows to both teams in terms of depth before the game. The Bucks traded Thon Maker to the Detroit Pistons for Stanley Johnson while the Wizards dealt Otto Porter Jr. to the Chicago Bulls for Jabari Parker and Bobby Portis. The 50-point first quarter was one shy of an NBA record for scoring in an opening stanza while its 85 points in the first half was a franchise record. All five starters finished in double figures, lead by 43 points for Giannis Antetokounmpo. Eric Bledsoe scored 22 points and tallied 11 assists in the victory. The Bucks will play a remade Dallas Mavericks team Friday night. 

Big night in Packerland Conference girls basketball

Sturgeon Bay earned their second win of the conference season against Sevastopol Tuesday night. A 60-43 triumph featured a balanced scoring attack from the Clippers. Sarah Bridenhagen scored 16 points, Carley Wodack and Brenna Zuehlke added 11 apiece and Kenzye Hassenjager scored a career-high 10 points in the win. Zoe Kuehn led all scorers with 19 points and Amber Roalkvan chipped in 10 points in the loss.

 

Gibraltar outlasted Oconto 54-37 to avenge a loss in their last game to Kewaunee. Payton Pluff filled up the box score with 18 points and Abbi Sitte scored 14 for the Vikings. Mara Allen led all scorers with 19 points for Oconto. 

 

Southern Door was a 44-38 winner over Gillett. Nicole Norton scored 12 points, Grace LeGrave added 11 points and Kendra Dantoin poured in nine points for the Eagles.

 

Algoma was a 52-35 winner over Peshtigo. MaKayla Guilette led all scorers with 17 points while teammate Sierra Nessinger netted 16 points for the Wolves. 

 

Finally, Kewaunee remained undefeated in the conference with a convincing 57-31 win over N.E.W. Lutheran.

Kewaunee's big sports night

The students of Kewaunee are more proud to be at school today than they are most days. That's because the Storm sports teams went 3-0 Monday night. Kewaunee wrestling clinched their second straight Packerland Conference championship with a victory over Southern Door which was heard on 104.1 WRLU. The boys basketball team played very well in a blowout victory against Gibraltar at home, a game that could have been listened to on 105.1 WSBW. In girls basketball, the Storm kept their dominant season going with a big victory, also over Gibraltar, in a tough game on the road. It's a good day to be Kewaunee Athletic Director Brian Rabas who says students and staff were a little happier today after last night's results than they would be on a normal Tuesday. Rabas added that the community helping out has made their sports programs what they are today.

 

 

The Kewaunee boys and girls basketball teams are right back at it on Tuesday night. The boys will go to Brillion in a non-conference matchup and the girls will play their third game in four days when they host Green Bay NEW Lutheran.

Pioneers apply defensive pressure in victory over Stockbridge

The Sevastopol girls basketball team has averaged 42.8 points per game this season, but only needed one half to meet that total Monday night against Stockbridge. Sevastopol carried a 43-22 lead at the half, and while the second half was much more even, the Pioneers would take home the non-conference victory 67-43. The explosive first half was due largely in part to a more aggressive defense that head coach Dan Judas has been encouraging over the past couple of weeks. He said he presented his team with a challenge before they took the floor.

 


For the Pioneers (4-12, 0-11), the 67-point mark is the team's highest scoring total of the season. Sevastopol will attempt to retain their aggressive style against Packerland Conference rival Sturgeon Bay (1-17, 1-11) tonight.

Storm powers past Eagles for wrestling title

The Kewaunee Storm captured their second straight Packerland Conference title in wrestling Monday night with a 53-18 win over the Southern Door Eagles.

 

The evening started with a pin by Southern Door's Austin Falish, but Max and Jack Severin each had pins while Logan Steinhorst added a regular decision at 120 pounds and Nathan VanGoethem scored a 14-0 major decision at 132 pounds to make the lead 19-6. The Storm and Eagles would exchange victories the next two weight classes with Drew Price earning a 4-2 regular decision for Southern Door and Mason Jeanquart collecting a 13-3 major decision at 145. After a forfeit by the Storm narrowed the lead to 23-15, Grant Englebert wrestled two weight classes up to get a hard-fought 4-0 victory at 160 pounds. The Storm would put the dual on ice with three forfeit and a pin by Paul Wery at 220 pounds.

 

Both teams will compete this Saturday at the regional tournament hosted by Southern Door. 

 

 

Kewaunee defeats Gibraltar boys 72-49 on 105.1 WSBW

The Kewaunee Storm boys basketball team completed its season sweep of Gibraltar on Monday evening, defeating the Vikings 72-49 to defend its home floor and creep closer to Peshtigo in the race for second place in the Packerland Conference.

 

A rough shooting stretch to begin the game proved to be costly for the away side. Despite the Storm traditionally being the side to shoot more from beyond the arc, the Vikings could not seem to score inside. The Vikings ended the first half with just 19 points, 15 of which came on three-pointers from four different players. 

 

On the Kewaunee side, their first half was marked by wide spread scoring. Ryan Carmichael led the way with 14 and Tanor Bortolini scored 8 of his own, but six other Storm players contributed to the scoreboard before halftime. Carmichael would finish with a game-high 18.

 

Although the second half would be even, the lead was just too much for the Vikings to overcome, as the lead remained in the 18-24 range for the entirety of the second half.

 

Following the loss, Gibraltar falls to 7-7 on the year and 5-5 in Packerland Conference play. Kewaunee improves to 10-6 on the season and 8-4 in the conference. The Vikings will take a couple of days off before meeting Green Bay NEW Lutheran at home on Thursday. The team took the first contest against the Blazers in a close 71-69 affair.

Eagles, Storm clash for Packerland wrestling title on 104.1 WRLU

It has come down to one final dual to decide the Packerland Conference championship when the Southern Door Eagles and the Kewaunee Storm Monday night. The two teams have run the table so far in the conference thanks in part to having the most complete teams. The Storm wrestling team is the defending conference champion thanks in part to Logan Steinhorst, Jack Severin, Travis Reinke, Dylan Steinhorst, and Paul Wery all returning and being ranked among the best in Division 3 according to Wisconsin Wrestling Online.

Gibraltar boys basketball at Kewaunee tonight on WSBW

The Gibraltar boys basketball team has not seen the court since January 25th, and although the winter storms have passed for now, the effects will be felt for a while longer. With several cancellations and postponements due to the weather, the Vikings will have plenty of games to make up in the month of February. Justin Burress, the head coach of the boys’ basketball team at Gibraltar, said it’s not just conditioning that worries him, but also the hectic nature of playing so many games in so few days.

 

 

Over the next 18 days, Gibraltar will play 9 games, including 2 non-conference matchups. The Vikings' Monday contest against Kewaunee will be broadcasted live on 105.1 The Viking, with Connor Harbit and Jay Kita on the call. Pregame will start at 7, with tip-off at 7:30.

Rescheduling games not an easy task

The cancellation of several high school athletic contests over the past week has one area athletic director working his hardest to reschedule as many games as possible. Todd Meikle, the athletic director at the Sturgeon Bay School District, said it is up to both him and the AD of the opposing school to schedule another time that works for both sides. Once a day is chosen, officials must be found to make the trip and help cover the date. Meikle said it can be tricky to do so depending on the day of the rescheduled game.

 

 

The Sturgeon Bay athletic director has had his hands full this week, with boys and girls basketball games and wrestling contests to make up. However, Meikle said he and the athletic department have everything set moving forward.

Sevastopol Athletic Boosters run several festival events

The Sevastopol Athletic Booster Club, assisted by several students, brought plenty of popular events to the Fish Creek Festival this year. Yearly favorites such as ice bowling and the bike toss were conducted under the club’s name, with the proceeds set to be used toward any of the Sevastopol athletic programs that might need additional funding in the future. Joel Schauske, a football coach at Sevastopol and a volunteer at the festival, said the bike toss is the most popular event even if he couldn’t remember where it came from.

 

 

In addition to ice bowling and the bike toss, the booster club also assisted with a hockey competition, a football toss, and a peculiar tennis ball golfing event on the ice that paid out $500 for a hole-in-one. 

Bucks knock off Wizards

Giannis Antetokuompo continued his great season on Saturday night as he led the Bucks to a 131-115 win over the Wizards in Washington DC. The Greek Freak poured in 37 points and grabbed 10 rebounds.

Girls basketball results for Friday

After almost a week of cancellations, several girls basketball teams finally returned to the floor on Friday as the second half of the season rolls along.

 

Zoe Kuehn's 14 and Grace Bauer's 8 were not enough as the Sevastopol girls fell to Southern Door 75-46.

 

Sturgeon Bay lost to Peshtigo in a tight contest 33-22. Sarah Bridenhagen and Carly Wodack led the Clippers with 7 while Lexia Baxter led the Bulldogs with 13.

 

Hanna Wiese's 19 points were enough for Algoma to move past Oconto 51-44. Mara Allen had 17 to lead the Blue Devils.

 

Gibraltar also defeated NEW Lutheran 50-42 to extend their winning streak by one more game.

Sevastopol credits three-point shooting for scoring surge

The Sevastopol girls basketball team has used decisive three-point shooting to increase their scoring output. The Pioneers have begun taking more threes, and although there have been issues finding the basket at times, the team has found itself open more and more as it begins to put more emphasis on the play. This improvement became most apparent last Friday, when Amber Roalkvan hit four three-point shots in addition to Kaitlyn Schauske's three three-pointers to lead the team over Lena 57-41 last Friday. Head coach Dan Judas said although the field goal percentage is not where he'd like just yet, the numbers are still there and will only continue to grow as the girls get more confident.
 


Chilina Cuellar and Zoe Kuehn also scored into the double-digits on Friday, but both elected to do so through shots inside the arc. The victory over Lena is Sevastopol's third non-conference victory this season.

Gibraltar girls need to restart the flame

The Gibraltar girls basketball team is currently riding a nine game winning streak, but will look to defend it for the first time since January 18th when they take on the NEW Lutheran Blazers in Green Bay on Friday. With last week off due to finals and several games canceled already this week due to weather, the Vikings have not seen the court for some time. Head coach Josh Kropuenske is concerned about the lack of practice his team has had over the last week, but does still remain confident in its ability to shake off any rust that might remain from the long rest. He also reminisced on the last time the two teams met.

 


Gibraltar’s nine game winning streak began back on December 7th following a 76-48 victory over the same Blazers team the Vikings will meet on Friday. Kropuenske credits the 28-point victory for lighting a fire underneath the girls, who went into the contest at 1-4 on the season.
 

Packers coaching staff close to finalized

The Green Bay Packers have retained defensive line coach Jerry Montgomery and running backs coach Ben Sirmans and promoted Jason Simmons to defensive backs coach and Ryan Downard to assistant defensive backs coach. Head Coach Matt LaFleur made the announcement Thursday.

 

Montgomery is entering his fifth season with the Packers and second as defensive line coach. He worked as the defensive front assistant for Green Bay from 2015-17. Montgomery has helped with the development of DL Kenny Clark, who recorded 10.5 sacks over the past two seasons, the most among Packers defensive linemen and second on the team over that span. In 2017, DL Mike Daniels earned his first career Pro Bowl selection, just the fifth defensive tackle in team history to be named to the Pro Bowl, after recording a career-best 72 tackles while ranking No. 3 on the team with five sacks. Montgomery joined the Packers in 2015 after coaching at the collegiate level for 11 seasons, which included eight seasons coaching the defensive line at the University of Oklahoma (2013-14), the University of Michigan (2011-12), the University of Wyoming (2009-10) and the University of Northern Iowa (2007-08). He began his coaching career at his alma mater, the University of Iowa, as a student assistant in 2002. Montgomery continued coaching as an assistant at Iowa City West High School (2003-04) and as the defensive coordinator at North Iowa Community College (2005) while also playing for the Chicago Rush, Colorado Crush and Las Vegas Gladiators of the Arena Football League (2003-05).

 

Sirmans is entering his fourth season as running backs coach for the Packers. From 2016-18, Green Bay led the NFL with an average of 4.66 yards per carry, including an average of 5.01 yards per carry in 2018 (No. 2 in the NFL) that was the second-best single-season mark in team history. He joined the Packers after spending the previous four seasons (2012-15) as the running backs coach for the St. Louis Rams. In 2015, Sirmans coached Todd Gurley, who was named to the Pro Bowl and the Pro Football Writers of America Offensive Rookie of the Year after leading all NFL rookies in rushing yards (1,106), scrimmage yards (1,294) and 100-yard games (five). Before joining the Rams in 2012, Sirmans spent 16 seasons as an assistant coach at the college level. He started his career at the University of Maine as the running backs/recruiting coordinator (1996-99). From 2000-04, he coached running backs at Kent State before joining Michigan State as a running backs coach in 2005. Sirmans added special teams to his coaching duties for the Spartans in 2006. His final college stop was at Boston College as the running backs coach from 2007-11. The East Orange, N.J., native played running back at Maine under current Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz. As a senior, Sirmans ran for 1,214 yards and earned all-conference and All-New England honors.

 

Simmons is entering his ninth season with the Packers having worked in various roles. In 2018, he coached the secondary for Green Bay, helping a defense that improved from No. 23 in pass defense in 2017 to No. 12 in 2018. From 2015-17, Simmons served as the assistant special teams coach, helping the Packers rank No. 2 in the NFL over that span in opponent punt return average (5.7 yards per return). In 2014, Simmons was a defensive/special teams assistant, where he worked closely with special teams and spent much of his time tutoring perimeter players on various coverage and return teams. He also assisted with the defensive backs, helping the Green Bay defense rank No. 9 in the league in takeaways (29). Simmons joined the Packers in 2011 as a coaching administrator, a position he held for three years. Before coaching, he played for 10 years in the NFL as a defensive back and was a standout on special teams during his career. A fifth-round pick by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 1998 NFL Draft, Simmons went on to play 121 games from 1998-2007 for the Steelers and Houston Texans. He lettered four years as a cornerback for Arizona State, serving as a team captain and earning second-team All-Pacific-10 honors as a senior.

 

Downard (DOWN-erd) begins his second season in Green Bay after serving as the defensive quality control coach last year. He came to Green Bay after working at Bowling Green for two seasons, serving as the safeties coach in 2017 and the director of football operations in 2016. In 2017, he oversaw the development of Marcus Milton, who converted from cornerback to tie for the team lead with three interceptions, as well as junior-college transfer Fred Garth, who led the team with 95 tackles. From 2014-15, Downard was a defensive coaching assistant with the Cleveland Browns, assisting with the defensive line in 2014 and the defensive backs in 2015. Prior to his two seasons with the Browns, he served as a graduate assistant at both Texas Tech and Toledo. Downard played defensive back at Eastern Michigan, where he earned honorable mention Freshman All-America recognition from Scout.com in 2007 after ranking No. 2 in the country among freshmen with six interceptions.

Green Bay hosts Milwaukee in homecoming slate

It is homecoming weekend on the campus of UW-Green Bay as the both Phoenix basketball teams host state rival Milwaukee in a pair of games this weekend at the Kress Events Center. On Friday night at 7, the men battle the Panthers as they try to stay eligible for the year-end Horizon League Tournament, which only includes the top eight teams. A win would allow the Phoenix to leapfrog the Panthers in the standings and possibly UIC if the Flames also lose. Both teams enter the evening on two-game losing streaks. On Saturday afternoon at 1, the women get their turn to take on the Panthers after falling to IUPUI in overtime last Saturday. The loss put them in unfamiliar territory, looking up at Wright State and Youngstown State in the Horizon League standings. Both the men and women are coming into their games with the Panthers winning their first matchup earlier this season.
