Wolverine Tournament

Run Ends In Crandon


The Crivitz Wolverines girls basketball team after taking down the Oconto Blue Devils found their playoff hopes end Monday night at the hands of the Crandon Cardinals.

The game really boiled down to a slow start for Crivitz, were it not for the 14 point struggle over the opening 18 minutes the Wolverines may have had a slid chance at winning this one. But Crandon, who did not have shooting troubles over the first built a 39-14 lead going into halftime.

Crivitz definitely figured out what went wrong over the first because during the second they looked like a new team, scoring 37 to the Cardinals' 29.

Taking top scoring honors for the Cardinals was A. Neilitz with 19 points. She was followed by teammate T. Renkas was 15 points and L. McGeshick with 11.

Crivitz was led by Chloe Gruszynski with 18 points and Lexi Oyer with 11. Emalee Johnsen posted 10 on the night.



Eskymos Slip Past

Maroons 66-64


The Escanaba Eskymos held on late to defeat the Menominee Maroons 66-64 on Wednesday, Feb. 22 despite a strong fourth quarter from Menominee.

Both teams scored over 20 points in the final frame, with Menominee winning the fourth quarter by a 26-22 margin, though it wasn't enough to get the win, as Escanaba had built a four-point lead at the half and a six-point advantage after three.

Menominee's leading scorer was Erin Barnette, who had 15. She was followed up by Emma Anderson, who had 13. Brianne Burnett got nine and Arikah Bellisle chipped in eight.

For Escanaba, Nicole Kamin led the way with 16, the highest of any scorer in the game. Mykenzie Monkevich had 11.



Marinette Falls in First

Round to Pulaski


The Marinette Marines were defeated in the first round of the playoffs, falling 63-51 to Pulaski on Wednesday, Feb. 21.

Despite the best efforts of McKenzie Bebo, who finished the game with a game-high 27 points, the Marines weren't able to hang with the high-scoring Pulaski squad.

Isabel Majewski led Pulaski with 25 points on 10-15 shooting, while Emily Higgins and Madi Winter contributed 14 and 13, respectively. Pulaski had an assist on 17 of their 23 baskets in the game, working the ball around well before taking a shot.

Katelyn Kitzinger gave the Marines an additional 13. Brookelyn Peterson had five, Mady Sims got four and Auburn Waloway had two.



Northland Pines Strong

Finish Ends Peshtigo

Season


The Peshtigo Bulldogs' season ended with a 57-44 loss to Northland Pines on Wednesday, Feb. 21 in the first round of the playoffs.

Northland Pines shot the ball well all night, getting a balanced scoring attack from all five starters, as they didn't have any bench players score.

Teresa Kopanski scored 16, Cassie Gauthier had 14 and Jacqueline Smith added 10. Kirsten Lindemann and Hadley Kruse chipped in nine and eight, respectively.

"We've had a lot of inconsistencies this year, but we know that on any given night, we've got four or five kids that could be in double figures," Northland Pines Coach Josh Olivotti said. "I talked to the kids a lot. In order for us to win in the playoffs, we have to have four kids around that double figure mark, because we have kids that are capable."

Olivotti was obviously pleased with his team's performance, saying, "We've got a great group of seniors. We've got some gamers in that group and I'm just really proud of how they fought through tonight. I'm just so happy for the kids tonight."

For Peshtigo on the offensive end, things did not go according to plan in the second half. After leading by as much as six with three minutes left in the first half, the teams went into the break tied at 27.

Northland Pines took their first lead of the game with 10 minutes to go in the game, and they never relinquished it, breaking open a nine-point margin over the next eight minutes before pulling away at the free throw line.

"We just missed wide open layups. We work on that stuff every day in practice, but sometimes they just don't go in," Bulldogs Coach Bruce Parkovich said. "It was just one of those things that after a while, when you keep missing those easy ones, you can only hold on so long on defense."

On the other hand, Olivotti credited his defense's role in the low-scoring affair for Peshtigo, saying, "Our kids just stepped up defensively and it was great to see."

Emma Frederickson led all scorers with 17, while Shae Tonn had 12 and Madi Martin got eight. Hannah Swanson contributed three, while Lexi DeBriyn and Sidney Gullicksen each added two.

All of Peshtigo's scorers in the game besides Gullicksen are graduating in May, so there will be a lot of turnover on the court for the Bulldogs, who surprised Parkovich on the defensive end.

"I said to the seniors that it was just the opposite of what I thought when I came in," Parkovich said. "I thought they could shoot and we could score points and it was going to be tough on defense. We didn't struggle. We played really good defense all year and we struggled shooting at times. It catches up to you sometimes."
