Wrestling recap: Southern Door wins pair

The Southern Door Wrestling 2019-2020 season has begun.  This years' teams consists of Freshman Alec Guilette, Jonas Jandrin, Cody Nellis, Jacob Zettle, Christian Counard, Reese Vanryzin and Ethan Rouer.  Sophomores Austin Farley, Dylan Wessel, Thomas Grosbeier, Shaun Tooley, Josh Ditello, Riley Phillips and Brodie Overbeck.  Juniors Austin Falish, Griffin Slezewski, Kyle Conard, Katelyn LeCloux, Brad Skippon, Brady Tooley, Drew DeFere and Grant Englebert.  Our only returning senior is Blake Jensen, who wrestled part of last season, and is joined by first year senior Ben Slezewski and exchange student Corentin Valette.

We are a young team again this year but with some valuable experience.  We have two returning state place winners with Grant Englebert (5th last year) and Griffin Slezewski 6th in 2018.  We also have two returning sectional qualifiers in Austin Falish and Kyle Conard.  Because we have been young the past couple years our Juniors and Sophomores have a lot of varsity time.  I expect the freshman are also going to make an impact this season.

Saturday we wrestled at the Schoenherr Duals in Stratford.  For several wrestlers this was their first high school competition and for some the first time ever wrestling.  No better way to let you know just how you stand than by wrestling a perennial power like Stratford (State runner up last year).  Like most seasons our new comers, and the team as a whole, will take some losses early in the season as we gain experience.  That said, I feel all of our returning wrestlers showed improvement from last season which was good to see.  We ended the day 2-3 as a team.  Not bad considering we were missing 10 wrestlers for various reasons.  We also moved wrestlers in an out of the line up to get as many close matches as possible.  As coaches we were able to see some of the techniques we've been working on pay off and some areas we need to re-emphasize.  We were also able to see the heart and determination this group has.

SD dual scores were as follows:
SD 36 Watoma Wild Rose 24
SD 28 Barron 51
SD 42 Crandon 30
SD 6 Stratford 58
SD 36 Phillips 39

Top individual finishers were Kyle Conard and Brodie Overbeck both placing second.

Team results were as follows:
Stratford 5-0
Phillips 4-1
Barron 3-2
SD 2-3
Wautoma Wild Rose 1-4
Crandon 0-5

Next Saturday the Varsity heads to Bayport for the "Battle on the Bay" and JV head to Luxemburg.  Bayport is another measuring stick as it is one of the toughest tournaments in the state.  Luxemburg is a tough JV tournament that can provide the mat time needed to develop skills.  Already looking forward to both tournaments.

Luxemburg-Casco boys basketball set for non-conference game

The only varsity game on the schedule in local high school athletics has the Luxemburg-Casco boys' basketball team playing the role of host this evening.


The Spartans are back in action for the first time in a week after they beat Green Bay East at home last week 89-57. Ryan Robillard nearly had a double-double in the game, scoring 29 points while collecting nine rebounds. The Tritons are coming off a 73-59 loss to Lourdes Academy last Tuesday.


Tip off is set for 7:15 p.m. with junior varsity games preceding it.

Packers keep pace in NFC North with win

It was not the prettiest win, but it allows the Green Bay Packers to remain ahead of the rest of the NFC North after beating the Washington Redskins 20-15.


It looked like it was going to be clear sailing the whole afternoon after the first quarter as Aaron Jones scored on a four-yard run and Aaron Rodgers found Robert Tonyan in the endzone to stake the Packers to a 14-0 lead. The Redskins would limit the Packers to just a pair of field goals the rest of the day. The Redskins scored touchdowns in the second and fourth quarters thanks to the legs of Adrian Peterson and the arm of Dwayne Haskins. They failed on an extra point and a two point conversion to keep the game out of reach for the Redskins.


The Packers hold a one game advantage over the Minnesota Vikings and a three game advantage over the Chicago Bears, who come to town next. The Vikings and Lions will also have a hand in the Packers fate with games the final two weeks of the year.

Badgers earn Rose Bowl bid

For the fourth time in the last decade, the Wisconsin Badgers will stop and smell the roses before concluding its football season.


The Rose Bowl serves as a nice consolation prize for the Badgers after falling to College Football Playoff participant Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship game on Saturday. The Badgers will face Oregon after they beat Utah in the Pac 12 Championship game last Friday. The traditional Big Ten/Pac 12 matchup featured the two teams in a 45-38 Ducks victory in 2012. The Badgers hope to get their first Rose Bowl victory since they won two straight Rose Bowls in 1999 against UCLA and 2000 against Stanford. 


The New Year's Day bowl kicks off at 4 p.m.

Bucks look to continue hot start

The Milwaukee Bucks look to continue their hot start to the season when they host the Orlando Magic Monday night.


The Bucks won their last time out, finishing their season sweep of the Los Angeles Lakers with a commanding 119-91 victory. The Magic are on a four-game winning streak entering the matchup. The two teams have already faced each other once this season with the Bucks capturing the win 123-91.


Tip off is set for 7 p.m.

Wrestling recap: Kewaunee top finisher at Papermaker

All wrestling teams in Door and Kewaunee Counties had great days on the mat in three different locations.


Luxemburg-Casco went 4-1 in their day of duals, topping Sheboygan Falls 78-3, Green Bay Preble 61-15, Oshkosh West 57-23, and Port Washington 46-25. It lost to Bay Port 45-32.


Kewaunee took 9th in the Papermaker Invitational with Jack Severin and Logan Steinhorst each taking second place in their weight classes. Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol came in seven places behind Kewaunee. 

Girls' basketball round-up: Southern Door soars past Oconto

The Southern Door Eagles gave the Oconto Blue Devils its first loss of the season in local girls' basketball action on Saturday.


The Eagles jumped all over the Blue Devils in the first half, outscoring their opponents 46-18. Nicole Norton led all scorers with 22 points, followed by 16 by Kendra Dantoin and Hailey Shimon adding 12 points.  



Phoenix drop pair of games

It was a tough pair of games for Green Bay Phoenix basketball fans Saturday afternoon as both teams lost.


In Green Bay, the women's team held a double-advantage over #16 DePaul, only see the Blue Demons go on a 14-2 run to close the third quarter to steal the momentum from the Phoenix. The Phoenix ended up losing the game 76-65. The tide turned when Caitlyn Hibner went out with a head injury late in the third quarter. Frankie Wurtz led the Phoenix with 25 points. 


The men's team were in Charleston, Ill. for their game,  losing to Eastern Illinois 93-80. Coach Linc Darner did not even make it until the end of the first half, ejected with a couple minutes to go in the opening frame after receiving his second technical for arguing calls. JayQuan McCloud led the Phoenix with 17 points.

Door County United fourth at Plymouth Swim meet

The Door County United swim team finished in the top half of a tough field at the Plymouth Invitational Saturday.


Scoring 305 points,  Brock Aune was one of the top swimmers for DCU, winning the 100 breast stroke, finishing second in the 50 freestyle  and part of the 3rd place finishing 200 meter freestyle relay.

Wisconsin's upset bid foiled

The Wisconsin Badgers may have done enough to shake up the College Football Playoff, but it was not enough to top Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship game, losing 34-21 in Indianapolis.


The Badgers got out to a 21-7 first half lead thanks to Jonathan Taylor's opening drive touchdown run and a pair of rushing scores by Jack Coan. It was all Buckeyes in the second half, however with Buckeyes quarterback throwing for all three of his touchdowns including the eventual game winner in the third quarter.


In the loss, Taylor became the fastest rusher in college football history to 6,000 yards, rushing for 148 yards on 20 carries. The Badgers now wait to find out where their postseason will take them.

Badgers need upset to win Big Ten football title

The University of Wisconsin football team is a 16.5 point underdog in Saturday’s Big Ten Championship Game against Ohio State at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The Badgers and Buckeyes met in Columbus earlier in the year with Ohio State cruising to a 38-7 victory. For the Badgers to get revenge and pull an upset, they’ll have to learn lessons from two Big Ten East teams. Michigan was able to score 27 against the nation’s second-best defense last week. Most of that came in the first half and the Wolverines actually left some points on the table. Jim Harbaugh kicked a field goal on fourth-and-five in the red zone in a controversial decision just before halftime. Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson lost a fumble near the 10-yard line on the drive prior to that. That is a significant improvement over what the Badgers were able to generate against Ohio State.

The other lesson comes from Penn State. The Nittany Lions led early against Ohio State and, although the game ended up being a two-score affair, it was as close as a team has come to upending the undefeated Scarlet and Gray. Penn State is the only team to hold Ohio State to under 30 points this year. Wisconsin has had a formidable defense all season. They have the personnel to duplicate Penn State’s successful scheme. 


Sevastopol girls still looking for first win

The Sevastopol High School girls basketball team was defeated by Peshtigo Friday, 54-34. They are still looking for the first win of the 2019-20 season. The Pioneers have a great chance to change that coming up Thursday when they host NE Wisconsin Christian Home School. The NEWHC Athletic Association fields teams in track and field, volleyball, cross country, and basketball from fifth grade and up. They do not play a regular schedule though. The game, set for Thursday, will be Christian Home School’s first contest of the season.

Kewaunee girls dominate rival

The Kewaunee High School girls basketball team defeated rival Algoma 61-33 on the shores of Lake Michigan Friday night. Kewaunee put in a complete 36-minute effort. The Storm led by 14 points at half and would not have needed another basket to secure the victory. The tenacious Kewaunee defense yielded only eleven points after the break to the Wolves.

The leading scorers for Kewaunee were Mackenzie Tlachac, who tickled the twine for 26, and Katie Metzler with 12 points. Algoma had two players with nine points apiece, Hanna Wiese and Sydney Zimmerman. Kewaunee plays at Gibraltar on Thursday. Algoma also gets a six day break before taking the court at home against NEW Lutheran.


Sitte dazzles in Gibraltar victory

The Gibraltar High School girls basketball team improved to 3-1 on the young season Friday night taming the Brillion Lions 66-60. It was the best offensive performance of the campaign for Gibraltar so far with Abbigael Sitte leading the way. She had 27 points, five rebounds, and seven steals before she was knocked out of the contest due to foul trouble. All of that production was accomplished in only 27 minutes on the court. Sage Krause added 13 points for the Vikings.

Gibraltar trailed at halftime before exploding for 43 second half points. Gibraltar hosts undefeated Kewaunee on Thursday night.


Sturgeon Bay girls even conference record

The Sturgeon Bay High School girls basketball team improved to 2-3 overall and 1-1 in the Packerland Conference with a victory Friday night. The Clippers snuck by NEW Lutheran 39-37 on the road in Green Bay. Sturgeon Bay raced out to a 24-15 halftime lead and had to hold on down the stretch. 

The Clippers were defined by the performance of Sarah Bridenhagen. She contributed 17 of the team’s 39 points. No other player registered more than six for Sturgeon Bay. Bridenhagen was matched on the other side by NEW Lutheran’s Bailey Scholz who also notched 17 points.

The Clippers return to the court on Tuesday against winless Green Bay West. The Wildcats have already lost to a Packerland squad. They fell to Algoma 46-43 on November 30th.

Phoenix fade away in second half

The Green Bay Phoenix men's basketball team made a tough Xavier Musketeers sweat during its Wednesday night matchup but cooled down in the stretch in its 84-71 loss in Cincinnati.


The Phoenix were down only by three heading into the break thanks to freshman sensation Amari Davis scoring 10 of his team-high 19 points in the first half. The size of the Musketeers eventually wore down the Phoenix, who scored 40 of its 84 points in the paint and collected just shy 30 inside the paint. JayQuan McCloud added 15 points for the Phoenix, which head to Eastern Illinois this weekend to play the Panthers.

New head coach Taylor Schmidt of the Lady Spartans started the show off as they look for their first win of the season Thursday night at Denmark.  The girls lost to powerhouse Wrightstown and Notre Dame to start out their schedule.

More offense, same result for Sevastopol girls

After putting up just 18 points in their opening game, the Sevastopol High School girls basketball team notched a respectable 36 at home against Oconto Tuesday night. Unfortunately, the result was the same in both games as the Blue Devils edged the Pioneers, 43-36. Oconto shot a scorching 19-32 from the field led by Hannah Moe with 13 points as Jenna Hornblad tallied 19. 

Oconto improves to 1-0 in Packerland Conference play with Sevastopol sitting at 0-1. The Pioneers next game is on the road at Peshtigo on Friday. The Pioneers wrap up the 2019 portion of their schedule with three games in five days beginning on December 12th.


Kewaunee girls basketball bolts past Sturgeon Bay

The Kewaunee High School girls basketball team lived up to the Storm moniker Tuesday night, bolting past Sturgeon Bay 66-22. It was both the highest point total of the young season for Kewaunee and their best defensive effort. Working in the Storm's favor was the fact that Sturgeon Bay also had a game Monday against Menominee from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. 

Kewaunee improves to 3-0 heading into Friday's rivalry game against Algoma. Sturgeon Bay is 1-3 and travels to NEW Lutheran Friday.


Southern Door girls, boys in action Tuesday

The Southern Door High School girls basketball team could not find lift off in Tuesday night's extra frame against NEW Lutheran at home. The Eagles allowed the road squad to win its first contest of the season in overtime, 64-55. The girls are back on the court Saturday evening at Oconto. The Blue Devils picked up a win in their first Packerland game Tuesday, beating Sevastopol.

With the girls team home, the boys had to travel to Denmark to matchup with the Vikings. It was Southern Door's first game of the year while Denmark already had a win to its name and that could have proven the difference in a close contest late. Denmark knocked off Southern Door, 65-62. Overall, very similar games for both the boys and girls squads. The Southern Door boys travels to NEW Lutheran Thursday night.


Soaring Bucks at struggling Pistons Wednesday

The Milwaukee Bucks are riding a 12-game winning streak into Little Caesars Arena in Detroit Wednesday night. The team's record is up to 18-3, three games clear of a five-team log jam for second place in the Eastern Conference. Both the Bucks and the Pistons won their last game handily. Milwaukee torched the last-place New York Knicks, 132-88, Monday. Last night, the Pistons rackey-tacked Cleveland 127-94. 

Detroit has been slowed this year due to injuries to star forward Blake Griffin. Even in Tuesday's win, Griffin was on the floor for only 23 minutes. Without Griffin at full strength it is hard to imagine that the Pistons have enough fire power to hang with Milwaukee's dynamic offense. The Bucks enter the game averaging 121 points per game.


Wisconsin men in ACC/Big Ten Challenge

The University of Wisconsin men's basketball team is back on the court Wednesday taking part in the 2019 ACC/Big Ten Challenge at NC State. After eight games between Monday and Tuesday, the conferences both have four wins. Last year's event ended in a 7-7 tie so this is nothing new for what many consider the two best conferences in college basketball. Because it is so close, the Wisconsin game may decide the result of the overall challenge. 

Wisconsin plays great defense, holding most of its opponents this year under 60 points. The problem has been on offense. That offense looked particularly stagnant last week in the Legends Classic when the Badgers dropped two games. Wisconsin will need to find improved ball movement if it hopes to steal a road game against the Wolfpack.

Spartan Winter Sports Preview at Rendezvous tonight on WBDK

Coming off a strong fall sports season, the Luxemburg-Casco Spartans winter sports will be previewed for the upcoming campaign on WBDK 96.7 FM Wednesday night from the Rendezvous of Luxemburg.  Coaches and student-athletes from the boys and girls basketball programs and the wrestling squad will be featured during the show that will run from 5:30 pm until 7pm.  Taylor Schmidt will start things off as she takes over the helm as the new coach for the girls' basketball team.  Chaz Treml will follow with the Spartan wrestling program and Tyler Thrune will wrap it up with the boys' basketball squad.  The broadcast will also be streamed live on  The schedule for the evening is listed below.

Bucks topple Knicks

The Milwaukee Bucks doubled up the New York Knicks and did not look back in its 132-88 victory Monday night in Milwaukee.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 29 points and collected rebounds while five other players joined him in scoring in double figures. The Bucks scored more than 30 points in three of the game's four quarters, including outscoring the Knicks 33-15 in the opening frame to set the tone for the rest of the evening. Julius Randle scored 19 points for the Knicks in the loss.


The Bucks are back in action Wednesday night when they travel to face the Detroit Pistons.

Brewers roster makeover continues

The overhaul of the Milwaukee Brewers took even more shape when the team opted against offering contracts to five players that were arbitration-eligible.


While they tendered contracts to Brent Suter, Ben Gamel, Josh Hader, and Corey Knebel, the Brewers did not do the same for Tyler Saladino, Travis Shaw, Jimmy Nelson, Alex Claudio, and Junior Guerra. This comes after the Brewers traded Chase Anderson, Zach Davies, and Trent Grisham in deals last month and saw Yasmani Grandal and Mike Moustakas sign free agent contracts in recent weeks.

The Green Bay Packers were able to get the taste of their loss to the San Francisco 49ers with a 31-13 win over the New York Giants Sunday afternoon.


The Packers defense which had struggled to cause turnovers in recent weeks forced rookie quarterback Daniel Jones into three interceptions. Aaron Rodgers was able to match his yardage total from last week by the opening moments of the second quarter while finding Davante Adams and Allen Lazard for first-quarter touchdowns. The Giants were threatening heading into the fourth quarter with the Packers holding just a 17-13 lead. Rodgers was able to put the game out of reach with a pair of touchdown passes to Adams and Marcedes Lewis to finish the day with four scores and 243 yards passing.


The Packers are back in action next Sunday afternoon when they host the Washington Redskins.

Bucks look to extend streak against Knicks

Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.

Wisconsin football wins Paul Bunyan's axe

One of the most coveted trophies in college football is heading back to Madison after the University of Wisconsin Badgers defeated Minnesota, 38-17, on Saturday evening. The elements were not a factor for the Badgers as they had a balanced offensive attack with many big plays through the air to keep Minnesota's defense guessing during the game. Quarterback Jack Coan was 15-22 for 280 yards and two touchdowns. Running back Jonathan Taylor, by comparison, scampered for 76 yards with two scores. As a team, the Badgers ran for 173.

Wisconsin's dynamic passing attack and just the right amount of trick plays helped the Badgers turn a close game at halftime into a runaway. The Badgers defense was good, forcing two turnovers that turned into points, and allowing 76 yards total on the ground. 

Not only does Wisconsin get Paul Bunyan's axe, they win the Big Ten West. That sets up a rematch against Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship Game Saturday. Wisconsin lost big in the regular-season at Columbus. The Buckeyes are undefeated and made it look easy against Michigan on the road this weekend. Ohio State put 56 points against the Wolverines. A Wisconsin victory would be an upset.

Both Phoenix teams earn big wins

The Green Bay Phoenix men's and women's teams earned big wins Saturday night to close out their Thanksgiving weekend slates.


On the women's side, the Phoenix earned their 11th win over a ranked opponent in program history, outlasting #18 Syracuse  79-73 in overtime in its final game at the Greater Victoria Invitational. Lyndsey Robson scored 13 points in  the win, but none bigger than her buzzer-beating half-court shot to force the game into the extra stanza. Caitlyn Hibner led all scorers with 30 points.


Southeast of the women's team's heroics, the Phoenix team blew past Montana State 98-72 in Bozeman. Freshman Amari Davis continued his special start to the season, scoring 28 points and collecting seven rebounds in his first start of the season. JayQuan McCloud, Cody Schwartz, Kam Hankerson, and Josh McNair each scored in double figures in the win.
