Coleman Claims Conference Crown

Coleman Becomes

Conference Champs

with Win Over Niagara


The Coleman Cougars officially wrapped up their 2017 softball season with the conference trophy in hand, defeating the Niagara Badgers 11-1 in six innings Thursday evening.

Before being able to officially hoist their conference championship trophy they had to get past the Badgers. Well, they certainly did just that starting the night's run fest in the first with a Lauren Osterberg run off a Mariana Meissner triple.

Annabelle Kotecki shutdown the first for the Badgers with three strikeouts and no runs.

Kotecki added a run during the second after hitting a triple for the 2-0 lead.

After a scoreless third the Cougars pushed across two more runs. Caitlin Huberty hit a single for the first runner on base and Kyla Manning followed with a single, both scored for the 4-0 lead.

Then came the fourth, which turned out to be the backbreaker for the Badgers. Mariana Meissner led off with a single followed by Beth Gannigan and Kotecki on singles. Huberty also slugged a single. All hitters scored for the 8-0 lead.

Niagara scored their only run of the evening during the fifth. While Coleman finished the night strong with three more over the sixth.

Kotecki struck out 11 on the day while also throwing 17 first pitch strikes. Jasmine Racine struck out six for the Badgers.



Wausaukee Ends

Conference Play

In Big Way


The Wausaukee Rangers ended their 2017 conference schedule with a resounding 15-0 over the Oneida Nation Thunderhawks in three innings.

The Rangers who have been hot at the plate as of late wasted no time during the first inning. Sammy Gruszynski advanced to first off an error. After an out the next four hitters walked with Alexis Ranallo taking a bases loaded RBI walk. Brooke Lesperance who had a perfect day in the circle for the Rangers clubbed a 2 RBI single followed by Bailey Walters on a two RBI double. But they weren't done just yet as Gruszynski took her second trip to the plate. She hit a single for an RBI while Callie Orlando hit an RBI single to wrap up the innings scoring at 8-0.

In the circle for the Rangers Lesperance struck out one during the first before striking out two in the second and two in the third allowing no hits.

The second inning saw Wausaukee's Allison Versaskas reach first base off an error. Ranallo brought her in for the 9-0 lead.

The third scoring was highlighted by a two RBI single from the bat of Larissa Rowley, helping to propel the Rangers to their 15-0 win.

Tiara Barber took the loss allowing eight hits 15 earned runs and seven walks while striking out seven.

Lesperance who was perfect on the day strike out five.

Lesperance led the plate attack with a two of three showing along with two runs and three RBIs. Rowley was one of one with a run and two RBIs. Walters was one of two with two RBIs.



STAA/Lena Bags Win

Over Gillett/Suring


The St. Thomas Aquinas/ Lena Cavaliers secured a 7-4 win over the hosting Gillett/Suring Hornets 7-4.

Much like the results of the guys up the hill, the Cavaliers had a slow start.

The Hornets Myranda Pratsch slugged a lead off home run. Gillett/Suring pitcher Sydney Young helped to keep the Cavaliers at bay for multiple innings, building up a respectable "K" collection.

The Hornets improved the lead to 2-0 thanks to a Young run during the fourth.

With the snap of the fingers the Cavaliers were back in it. After the lead off hitter struck out to start the fifth Jazmine Thomson hit a single. Lilly Lefebvre was next with a single and L. Sellen continued the rally with a single. All three crossed home for the 3-2 lead.

Gillett/Suring's Kohls tied things up with a fifth inning run to make it 3-3 before Young crossed in for the 4-3 lead.

STAA/Lena added runs from Kaitlyn Hodkiewitz and Marley Carviou over the sixth for the 5-4 lead before finishing strong over the top of the seventh with another Carviou run and a Millie Benson run for the 7-4 lead.

Carviou took the circle win for the Cavaliers, striking out seven while allowing five hits, four runs (two earned) and three walks.

Young was saddled with the loss as she struck out 11 on the day. She allowed nine hits, seven runs (four earned) and now walks.

At the plate Gillett/Suring's Willow Pecha was two of four with three RBIs. STAA/Lena's Millie Benson was three of four with a run and one RBI. Thomson was two of three with a run.



Wausaukee Suffers

Non-Conference Loss


The Wausaukee Rangers played host to the Crandon Cardinals and were handed a crushing 15-4 defeat.

The Cardinals jumped to an early 3-0 lead over the first inning and plowed across another five runs over the second for a 8-0 lead.

The Wausaukee defense made a stand during the third, shutting down the Cardinals scoring. But that didn't last too long as the Cardinals returned to their scoring ways over the fourth with three additional runs.

Wausaukee finally answered during the fourth as Sammy Gruzynski led off the inning with a single. Torri Jewett slugged a triple while Kaila Backhaul pushed in a run with a single. After the inning the Rangers trailed 11-3

The Rangers were unable to close the gap as the finally inning saw only one run cross in for the 15-4 defeat.

At the plate Wausaukee's Gruzynski was three of four with two runs while Jewett was two for four with one run.

Lexi Zak took the loss allowing 12 hits, 11 runs (nine earned) and three walks while striking out five.

Crandon's Crawford gave up seven hits, four earned runs and one walk while striking out four.



Crivitz Falls In

Regional to Crandon


The Crivitz Wolverine softball team's season came to an end Tuesday night in Crandon as they fell to the Cardinals 8-6.

After Crandon posted the first run of the game during the second the Wolverines responded with a Jas Zach two RBI double that brought home Hailey Andrist and Sianna Gunns. Zach was brought home by Kieren Gribben on a single for the 3-1 lead.

Crandon got three across during the fourth for the 4-3 lead before Crivitz recaptured the lead in the top of the fifth. Gunns got the inning going with a double and was brought in by Zach on a single. Talor Long sent Zach to the plate off a double while Gribben kept the scores coming with another RBI. CeCe Johnsen helped out with yet another RBI for the 6-4 lead.

Again Crandon returned fire, this time getting four across the plate for the 8-6 lead which they held onto for the win.

At the plate for the Wolverines Zach was three of four with three RBIs while Long was two for four with one run and one RBI.

Crandon's Kalkoten was two of four with two runs while Huber finished the evening two of three with two runs and an RBI.

Crowferd took the win for the Cardinals allowing 10 hits, six runs and one walk while striking out three.

Crivitz's Sarha Bublitz gave up five hits, eight runs and six walks while striking out two.



Wittenberg-Brinamwood

Takes Down Gillett/Suring


The Wittenberg-Birnamwood Chargers eliminated the Gillett/Suring Hornets 5-3 in Regional softball action.

The Hornets struck first with one run over the bottom of the first inning. The Chargers fired back with one in the second while the Hornets retook the edge 2-1 in the bottom of the second.

Two runs in the third and another two in the fifth put the Chargers up 5-2. Gillett/Suring mustered one more run in the sixth.

At the plate the Hornet's Faith Sorlie was two of four with an RBI while Willow Pecha was two of four with one run and one RBI.

Sydney Young was saddled with the loss giving up nine hits, five runs (two earned) and five walks while striking out seven.



Peshtigo Heads into

Playoffs on Winning Note


Thursday evening the Peshtigo Bulldogs traveled to Crivitz to take on the Wolverines in their final M&O matchup. The Bulldogs scored in every inning, including five in the second inning, to go on and win 15-4 in six innings.

Peshtigo wasted no time getting runs on the board. Shae Tonn connected on a single and scored on Lexy DeBriyn's single. DeBriyn stole second and scored on a base hit from Madi Martin as the Bulldogs went up 2-0. The Bulldogs broke the game open in the second. They scored five runs on six hits including a two-RBI double from Megan Behnke. This extended the lead to 7-0.

With the score at 12-2 heading into the bottom of the fifth, Crivitz avoided the 10-run rule by scoring two runs. Laken Ducaine drew a two-out walk and the next batter Jas Zach hit a double that plated Ducaine. Zach scored on a single from Talor Long, trimming the lead to 12-4.

Three runs in the top of the sixth were enough for Peshtigo to take the 15-4 win. Shae Tonn earned the win for Peshtigo, striking out three batters in two innings and allowing just one hit and zero runs. Crivitz's Sarah Bublitz took the loss, giving up seven runs on 10 hits in two and a third innings, while striking out two.

Lexy DeBriyn and Olivia Lewis each recorded three hits for Peshtigo while Shae Tonn, Madi Martin, Jaclyn Demeuse and Jenna Thill all had two hits a-piece.  Jas Zach and Talor Long each led the Wolverines with 2-for-3 plate appearances.



Marines Can't

Anchor Down Vikings


The Marinette Marines took on the Denmark Vikings Thursday in an NEC contest.  Six first inning runs and three in the second for Denmark helped them cruise to a 9-0 lead, before holding on and winning 14-8.

Kyla Lesperance suffered the loss for the Marines giving up nine earned runs on seven hits and three walks in an inning and a third. Hannah Bearson led Marinette at the plate with a 3-for-5 game including two doubles and an RBI.  Jordan Miller added a 2-for-5 day with a run and an RBI and Abi Duda was 2-for-4 in the game.



Panthers Fall

Short in Slugfest


As the Oconto Falls Panthers traveled to Fox Valley Lutheran Friday to take on the Foxes, both teams lit up the score board. A large difference in the contest was the four errors committed by the Panthers' defense. Each team scored 10-plus runs, but it was FVL that edged Oconto Falls, 11-10.

The Panthers jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the first but FVL responded with three runs of their own. Two runs in each of the second and third innings gave the Foxes a 7-3 advantage. Oconto Falls reeled off six runs in the top of the fourth to regain the lead, 9-7. A run in the fifth and three in the sixth gave the Foxes the lead for good and they went on to win 11-10.

Haley Bell was saddled with the loss for Oconto Falls, she went three innings allowing seven runs (four earned) on eight hits and a walk. Bailey Magnin and Sarah Pankratz each recorded three hits for the Panthers in the contest.  Virginia Misco was 2-for-4 with two home runs for Oconto Falls.
