L-C Baseball loses to Freedom 2-1

Luxemburg-Casco hosted Freedom in conference play under the lights last night at the Luxemburg-Casco Sports Complex. The Spartans looked on as Senior Captain and Ace Ian Doell continued his dominant senior campaign allowing 0 earned runs over his 5 innings of work. Over that span of time Doell retired 8 Freedom hitters via the strikeout while Freedom only scattered 3 hits over 5 frames. This pushes Doell to a 0.55 ERA over 25 innings of work this year. Freshman Owen Deprez came in as relief for the Spartans and allowed 1 unearned run and 1 earned run as Freedom took the lead in the top of the 6th 2-1. Deprez closed out the seventh frame with a 1,2,3 inning to get the bats to the home team for one final chance. Luxemburg-Casco couldn't muster anything in the bottom of the seventh as they also went down 1,2,3. The Spartans had very little to show offensively with only two hits and one run. Those lone hits came off the bats of Senior Captain OF Noah Lindsley and Junior 1B Dylan Dahlke. Dahlke was also responsible for the only RBI in the Spartans offense as he knocked in Senior Captain Lance Tebon home on a fielder's choice in the bottom of the first.


Luxemburg-Casco will travel to Freedom for Game 2 of the series on Thursday, April 25th with opening pitch slated for 4:30 PM.

Brewers lose hold on game two 

The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3 on Tuesday night. Zach Davies started on the bump and had another efficient outing. Davies went nearly five innings only giving up two earned runs on the night. He would hand the ball over to the bullpen tied 2-2.


Travis Shaw seems to be shaking off his early-season slump. He hit two solo shots in the game. Orlando Arcia would account for the other run with a solo homer of his own in the fifth inning. The Brewers would just fall short in the final innings. 


The two teams will now run it back for game three of the series on Wednesday. Milwaukee will trot out Jhoulys Chacin to try and salvage a game from the series. First pitch will be thrown out at 12:15.

Bellinger steals win from Brewers in Dodgers series finale

The Milwaukee Brewers played host to the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday afternoon and lost 6-5. For the first time this year, the roof was open and the sun was shining down for the game. It was a fairly big crowd on hand for the contest that took place on Easter Sunday. 


Los Angeles jumped out ahead in the first inning. In the first at-bat of the game, Joc Pederson took Brandon Woodruff deep to give them a 1-0 lead. After a Corey Seager double, Cody Bellinger would slap a hit to left field to score him. Milwaukee wouldn't answer back in the bottom half of the inning so the score would hold at 2-0. 


The Dodgers would tack on two more runs in the second inning as Woodruff was having a tough time with the top of their order. Corey Seager hit another double that would score a run. Followed by another Cody Bellinger single to drive him in. That would leave Milwaukee trailing 4-0 after two innings.


The Brewers would storm back to make it a game though. Lorenzo Cain hit a two-run shot in the fifth inning. Then, Eric Thames hit a three-run bomb to center in the eighth inning. It wouldn’t be enough as Cody Bellinger hit a solo shot in the ninth to put Milwaukee away. 


The Brewers will now travel to St. Louis to begin a series with the Cardinals. It will be the two teams third series of the early season. Adrian Houser will take the mound for Milwaukee. First pitch will be thrown out at 6:45 Monday night. 

Yelich hits two more home runs as Brewers shutout Dodgers

Christian Yelich continued to crush the baseball on Saturday night at Miller Park and he got some help from Ryan Braun and the pitching staff. Yelich hit two more home runs, both off of Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu. He now has a league-leading 13 homers which is three more than the next closest sluggers. Yelich's two solo home runs and Ryan Braun's three-run bomb provided all the scoring for the Brewers.


Chase Anderson pitched five scoreless innings to get the win and the bullpen threw four more shutout innings to hold the 5-0 victory for Milwaukee. The staff only allowed two hits the whole game.


The Brewers will try to force a split of the four-game series on Sunday afternoon at Miller Park, first pitch at 1:10 PM. Clayton Kershaw will pitch for the Dodgers against Brandon Woodruff for Milwaukee.

Bucks on the verge of the Eastern semis

Playing their first road playoff game wasn't much of a deterrent for the Bucks as they beat the Pistons 119-103 Saturday night in game 3 of their first-round playoff series. Seven Bucks scored in double figures with Giannis Antetokounmpo leading the way with 20 points. Brook Lopez and Eric Bledsoe each had 19. Blake Griffin played his first game of the series and led all scorers with 27. He had been nursing a sore left knee.


Milwaukee now leads the series three games to none and just need one more win to move on to the Eastern Conference Semifinals. The Bucks will go for the sweep Monday night in Detroit with the tip-off at 7 PM.

What does Wrestling and the Wrestling Family mean to you?

What does Wrestling and the Wrestling Family mean to you?
“Wrestling is the only sport that instills ultimate respect for every single person within it. The ability to single-handedly overcome and physically outdo another athlete is like no other feeling in the world. It creates a concept of values and beliefs into a wrestling family and teaches camaraderie. The wins are the best wins and the loses are the worst losses you will have in your life, because it directly relates to you as an individual, overcoming factors that can benefit or harm your well-being. There is nothing like it.” Mitchell Overbeck
 “Wrestling becomes a way of life. From eating habits, exercise and workouts, to self-discipline and it doesn’t stop when the season is done. It’s not just about getting your arm raised on the mat, but overcoming hurdles, fears, and insecurities. Building confidence and camaraderie with other wrestlers and that only other wrestlers understand, like an unwritten code. Every wrestler knows the heartache of losing and leaving their pride on the mat, yet get up every day and work harder than the day before.” Tammy DeNamur
“Wrestling is a teacher of life. It reveals your strengths, weaknesses and brings you a sense of belonging” Tory Jandrin “Colin started later than most. For many- many years I had to sit and watch my son get thrown around by a lot of guys bigger than him. In the end it was worth it” Wendy Shubert
According to Merriam Webster the meaning of family is: the basic unit in society traditionally consisting of two parents rearing their children : a group of individuals living under one roof : a group of person of common ancestry : a group of people united by certain convictions or a common affiliation : lastly family could mean a group of things related by common characteristics.
When it comes to wrestling I think there is a bigger meaning behind the word family. So I asked members from the wrestling community to comment:
“To me the wrestling “family” is much bigger than the families and people we have traveled with to tournaments from our school or team. The wrestling family knows no district boundaries or specific season(s) or teammates. The family extends from those that competed to parents, siblings, coaches, and spectators. Anyone that knows the hard work and sacrifices put in by all involved develops a bond and appreciation that often lasts a lifetime.” Coach Jerry Englebert
 I have been around sports my whole life- from being a 3 sport athlete, collegiate athlete, and now a Licensed Athletic Trainer providing sports performance enhancement through EDGE 3D programming at DCMC. I have had my fair share of different “families”. But the family that has built some of the strongest bonds and has withstood the years is the wrestling family. “A bond that is deeper than a sport. It comes from sacrifice of yourself for all who enjoy the challenges of a demanding sport. Wrestling links you forever if you are the athlete, parent or community member. It’s things unsaid… and hard to put into words…forever a wrestling family.” Dawn Englebert  As a wrestling sister, I think part of the reason for this bond is the grueling all weekend bleacher butt that sets in when the wrestlers are young. “This family is formed through blood, sweat, and tears.” Tyler Wagner  Multi- youth tournament weekends, first through eighth grade. You really get to know the people that are in the stands yelling and cheering with or against you. “It instills dedication in families as well as wrestlers. Camaraderie and friendships are made, even with the competitors and their families. It is a mutual respect.” Dave Walker
You find yourself treating the other wrestlers and their siblings as your own, other people’s kids, as your own kids and other parents as your parents. “Wrestling families stick together through the best and worst times; everyone genuinely wants them to do well and are always there to help. Your child never needs to worry about having a partner or coach; someone is always there without being asked. These bonds are so strong and extend far beyond the mat.” Shannon LeFevre  “Everyone in the wrestling family makes everyone feel very welcome and like you’ve always been a part of the family.” Jen LeCloux

Yelich homers again, but Brewers can't hold on

Christian Yelich homered for the 11th time in just in his 21st game this season but it wasn't enough to defeat the Dodgers on Friday night. The final score was 5-3. In the bottom of the first Lorenzo Cain led off with a single. Yelich drove Cain and himself home with a home run off Dodgers starter Ross Stripling.


The game was tied at 2 going to the 8th inning. The Brewers dominant reliever Josh Hader allowed two walks and then a three-run home run to Enrique Hernandez. Eric Thames added a solo home run in the bottom of the eighth but that was the last score of the game.


The Brewers have now lost the first two games at home to the Dodgers and three in a row overall. Chase Anderson will start on the mound for the Brewers on Saturday against Hyun-Jin Ryu for the Dodgers. First pitch is at 6:10 PM.

Brewers drop game one to Dodgers

The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-1 Thursday night. Zach Davies started on the mound for Milwaukee. He had a stellar performance going five innings and not giving up a single run. Eventually, his start would be squandered after Matt Albers gave up three runs in an inning. 


Hits were few and hard to find for the Brewers. They were getting no-hit well into the fifth inning before Orlando Arcia broke it up with a single. Christian Yelich would eventually hit his 10th homer in the ninth inning but it wasn’t enough as the Brewers fell. 


The two teams will now run it back for a Friday night game. Jhoulys Chacin will start on the bump for the Brewers. Ross Stripling will grab the rock for the Dodgers. First pitch will be thrown out at 7:10.
