Track and Field sectionals carry on

After only so much of local sectional track meets could not be finished on Thursday due to inclement weather calling off the rest of the meet, teams rejoined on Friday. The meets were able to be finished and now state qualifiers are set. Sectional results around the state can be found following this link. 


Bucks enter biggest game of season

Much is on the line when the Milwaukee Bucks head to Brooklyn on Saturday for their biggest game of the season, and perhaps Giannis Antetokounmpo’s biggest game of his career. The Bucks and Nets will square off for a game seven with a chance to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals against the winner of game seven in the playoff series between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Atlanta Hawks. A loss for the Bucks would make another year where they don’t make it out of the second round, and speculation insists it could be the end of Mike Budenholzer’s run as Milwaukee’s head coach. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 PM. 


Baseball trio gets swept

In Friday’s professional and northwoods baseball action, area teams got swept. 


The Milwaukee Brewers had a 4-1 lead over the Colorado Rockies after the top of the fifth when they scored three runs. The Brewers wouldn’t hang on as Colorado climbed back on top in extra innings. The Brewers lost 6-5 in the ten-inning contest. The Brewers play the Rockies at 8:10 PM on Saturday.


The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers dropped their fourth straight to Quad City on Friday. They lost 9-0 and have been outscored 32-9 in those four games. They take on Quad City at 6:30 PM on Saturday. 


The Green Bay Booyah fell to the Fon du Lac Dock Spiders by a 12-6 final score. The Booyah play the Kokomo Jackrabbits on Saturday with first pitch scheduled for 5:30 PM. 


Blizzard routed by Bucks

The Green Bay Blizzard were taken down at the Resch Center by the Bismarck Bucks with little chance of winning from the opening kickoff. The Blizzard lost their third game to the Bucks this season, with this loss more lopsided than the others. The final score ended up 50-29. After one quarter the Bucks led 14-7. The blizzard were outscored 13-3 in the second quarter, and went into the break down 27-10. The game was put out of reach in the third quarter when it ended with the Bucks up 43-16. The Blizzard cut the lead by six points in the final stanza, but fell to 3-3 on the season. Green Bay’s next game is against the Iowa Barnstormers on Friday, June 25th in the Resch Center. 


Peninsula Packer fans split on Love

While the Green Bay Packers deal with uncertainty regarding their 16-year veteran franchise quarterback, there is a great divide in how people feel about the possibility of second-year quarterback Jordan Love being under center. Recently, Door County Daily News ran a poll to gauge how confident fans of the green and gold were in the event that Jordan Love is the starting quarterback in 2021. The results were almost evenly split when fans were asked if they believed Love could lead Green Bay to a winning record. Out of 227 votes, 115 voted no, and 112 voted yes. Love was the surprise of the 2020 NFL draft when the Packers selected him 26th overall. While only time will tell how the entire situation between Rodgers and the Packers plays out, who will be the Packers quarterback week one remains the million-dollar question of the NFL’s offseason. 


Area track teams compete for state bids

Sectional meets were held for area schools at two different locations on Thursday. Southern Door, Sturgeon Bay, Kewaunee, and Luxemburg-Casco made the trip to Fox Valley Lutheran. Algoma, Sevastopol, and Gibraltar headed to Rosholt. Algoma reported a state qualifier and Sevastopol announced their athlete's accomplishments.

Rain delays don't slow Booyah; Rattlers start slow

A pair of area baseball teams had vastly different outcomes in their Thursday games. 


Green Bay Booyah


Despite having weather hold up the game in two different instances on Thursday, the Green Bay Booyah still beat the Fon Du Lac Dock Spiders, 5-1. The Dock Spiders got on the board to open up the game, but that would be their only run throughout the game. The Booyah scored the next inning on a Tristin Garcia RBI single. The Booyah took the lead when Nathan Blasick got to first on a walk with the bases loaded. Blasick’s big day continued, hitting a ground-rule double that brought two runs across. Blasick would get around himself, and make the score 5-1. 


Another big-time performer for the Booyah was one of the areas own, Connor Langreder. The De Pere native sat down eight of the fourteen batters he faced, giving up just a hit through 4 ? innings. The Booyah finished with five runs on seven hits and two errors. For the Dock Spiders, they scored a run on five hits and an error. The next game for Green Bay is against Fon du Lac again on Friday, but this time on the road. 


Wisconsin Timber Rattlers 


A disastrous start plagued the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers in their 13-3 loss to the Quad Cities River Bandits on Thursday. Quad Cities scored twelve runs in the top half of the first inning, which decided the ball game. The Rattlers scored three runs in the top of the seventh to tighten the gap, but that’s all the closer they got. The Timber Rattlers have another road game against Quad Cities on Friday starting at 6:30 PM. 


Bucks push playoff series

In a win or go home game six against the Brooklyn Nets in the second round of the NBA playoffs, the Milwaukee Bucks chose the winning option. Khris Middleton shined in the game with 38 points, which included two 4-point plays. Giannis Antetokounmpo was the next leading scorer with 30 points and Jrue Holiday pitched in 21. The Bucks downed the Nets, 104-89, despite a 32-point effort from Kevin Durant. The series goes back to Brooklyn for a deciding game seven on Sunday. Tip-off on Sunday is scheduled for 7:30 PM. 


Baseball round-up: Gibraltar/Washington Island denied late

Gibraltar/Washington Island saw their streak of consecutive regional titles end on Wednesday in a 12-9 loss to Mishicot. 


The Indians jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning and led 6-1 in the third, but then saw the lead erased by the Vikings in the third and fourth innings. The Vikings took the lead in the fourth inning thanks to a six-run frame.  The Indians would respond with single tallies in the fifth and sixth innings to make it 9-8 entering the seventh. The Vikings would give up four runs in the top half of the inning and were unable to scrape up enough baserunners to take bite out of the Indians' lead.


The Vikings end the season 13-8.



Softball round-up: Kewaunee, L-C claim regional crowns

Two Kewaunee County schools kept their seasons alive with wins in the WIAA Softball Regional Finals on Wednesday.


Luxemburg-Casco received a complete game, three-hit shut out from Rebecca Kroll as the Spartans rolled to an 8-0 win over Shawano. They will face conference foe Marinette in the sectional semi-final for Division 2 at Luxemburg-Casco on Monday.


Kewaunee nearly saw a 6-1 lead disappear because of a determined Southern Door squad, but captured the regional title 6-4 over the Eagles. The Storm will play conference foe Peshtigo on Monday in Kewaunee.


Algoma saw their season end in extra innings in a 4-3 loss to Iola-Scandanavia at home.

Track preview: Trip to State on the line in Thursday's sectionals

The area's track teams have plenty of athletes in the running to make the trip to the WIAA State Meet in LaCrosse next week.

Packers holding final OTA's

The Green Bay Packers are in the midst of holding their final voluntary Organized Team Activities before training camp opens, which is projected for late July. Many young players are getting a large load of reps as a lot of vets and starters are not in town. The headliner of them all is Jordan Love, who has taken the majority of competitive reps with the uncertainty surrounding Aaron Rodgers’ future in Green Bay. The session is scheduled to end after Thursday’s practice. While it’s unconfirmed, Head Coach Matt Lafleur has hinted that July 29th as the training camp start date.

The game did not end how it originally appeared, as the Bucks gave up a 16-point halftime lead to the Brooklyn Nets and fell by a final score of 114-108. The Bucks big three of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, and Jrue Holiday led the way in scoring for Milwaukee. Antetokounmpo had 34, Middleton had 25, and Holiday had 19.
