Marines Defeats

Fox Valley

Lutheran 15-0

Marinette picked up a 15-0 win over Fox Valley Lutheran in four innings on Tuesday.

Peyton Berman posted the best offensive line, going 2-3 with a walk, three runs and four RBIs. Destiny Walker was 2-3 with two runs. Wynn Erdman pitched for the Marines, striking out seven and allowing just three baserunners over four innings.

"I give every one of these girls credit, because it's not very nice out right now and they kept battling through the four innings we played," Marinette coach Scott MacIntyre said.

The Marine bats were going, but it's early in the season, and there will be a lot of movement in the lineup over the course of the 2022 spring.

"I've been telling the girls since May that we have to be a different team than we are now. There's a lot of moving parts. Last year, the nine was pretty well set. This year, there's 13 on the bench and its floating around," MacIntyre said. "They're very competitive. They're practicing hard. They've always worked hard."

Ahrens 13k Day

Leads Peshtigo

to Win Over Sevastopol

Peshtigo's Bethany Ahrens' first pitching outing of the season went just how last spring's strong season did, as she struck out 13 and allowed just one unearned run in a 5-1 win over Sevastopol on Tuesday.

The run came in the first inning, as the leadoff hitter reached on a single and then scored on an error.

The Bulldogs' one-run deficit would hold until the fourth, when they got the bats going. Ahrens singled and Akira Smalls backed it up with a single of her own. Sam Kodric singled in the inning as well and the trio each scored runs.

In the fifth, Ahrens walked and scored, and Tori Jandt scored a run in the sixth.

Ahrens 1-2 with two runs and Smalls was 2-2 with a run scored.

"The girls did a great job of focusing and competing," Peshtigo coach Matt Lacoursiere said. "Typical cold weather game controlled by pitching and defense. Bottom of the lineup stepped up and put pressure on their defense."

Cougars Survive

Season Opener Over

Wausaukee 8-7

Coleman walked off on Wausaukee on an error Thursday afternoon to begin the season 1-0.

The Cougars and Rangers entered the seventh inning knotted at seven. After three walks loaded the bases with one out, Paige Fischer hit a soft ground ball to the catcher and reached on an error to give Coleman an 8-7 victory.

Coleman started the game off with a 4-0 lead after one inning. Three walks and an error gave Coleman a 1-0 lead and the bases loaded. With Ava Podoski at the plate, two Cougars scored on wild pitches and Podoski singled home Annabelle Markiewicz to give her team a 4-0 lead.

Wausaukee scored one in the second to start chipping away, with Amber Caylor singling home Sparrow Luccarini.

Coleman got that run back on a wild pitch in the second, but Wausaukee wouldn't go offensively.

Rachel Schlies and Autumn Schroedar each walked and scored, the former on an error and the latter on a single by Melody Schaal. After the top of the fourth, Wausaukee had the lead, with Schroedar singling home Kenzie Truesdell and Schlies.

Coleman tied the game in the bottom half with a wild pitch that scored Courtney Den Ruyter. In the bottom of the fifth, she gave the Cougars a lead when she scored on a passed ball, but Wausaukee tied it again with an RBI double by Schlies in the sixth before Coleman got the seventh inning win.

Coleman batters walked 13 times in the game to boost their offense. Den Ruyter walked twice and had a double, scoring three runs. Alyssa Hoida was 1-3 with a run scored, a double and two walks, while Christina Ermis, Cameron Zeitler, and Markiewicz scored runs. Zeitler, Markiewicz, and Podoski had RBIs.

For Wausaukee, Schlies was 1-3 with a double, a walk, two runs, and an RBI. Schroedar was 1-2 with two walks, two runs, and an RBI. Truesdell and Luccarini scored a run each, and Frost scored twice. Caylor was 2-3 with an RBI.

Den Ruyter got the win for her seven innings. She allowed six runs on seven hits and six walks, but she was able to limit damage by striking out 13 batters.

Schlies was perhaps a hard-luck loser. Despite the 13 walks she handed out, only two of the eight runs allowed were earned. She allowed five hits and struck out nine.



Strong First Inning

Gives Cougars Win

Over Rebels

A three-run first inning was just enough for the Coleman Cougars to hold on to in a 3-2 victory over Wabeno/Laona in the first game of a doubleheader Saturday.

Coleman had eight hits in the five-inning game, and five of them came in the first inning. Courtney Den Ruyter doubled to deep center field, then scored on an Alyssa Hoida single.

Ava Podoski singled, but she was thrown out at home for the second out of the inning trying to score on a Paige Fischer hit to the pitcher.

Cameron Zeitler made it 3-0 with two outs when she doubled to center, scoring Christina Ermis and Fischer.

The Rebels got on the board with the help of an error in the fourth. Another error with two outs in the fifth gave Wabeno/Laona a lifeline and moved the tying run to second base and the winning run to first, but Den Ruyter got a groundout to end the game and strand the pair.

She pitched five innings, allowing two unearned runs on just one hit and two walks. She struck out nine Rebel hitters.

Hoida, Den Ruyter, and Zeitler had two hits apiece. Zeitler had two RBIs and Hoida had one. Den Ruyter, Ermis, and Fischer scored one run each.

In the second game of the doubleheader, Coleman was beaten 10-2, with five errors and 10 hits dooming the Cougars.

The Rebels two, three, and four-hitters each had two hits and scored three runs, with two Rebels adding three RBIs.

Coleman's biggest offensive bright spot was Hoida, who went 3-3 in the game, though it didn't translate to any runs or RBIs. Podoski and Hope Forner had RBIs, scoring Den Ruyter and Ermis.

Chloe Dufeck started with the ball, pitching four innings and allowing 10 runs (six earned). She threw strikes, with just one walk and 83 percent of her pitches crossing the plate, but she allowed 10 hits.



Cardinals Hand

Wolverines 16-5 Loss

Crandon piled on the runs in a 16-5 win over Crivitz on Saturday.

Both teams scored one run in the first and were held scoreless in the second, but the bats came loose for Crandon from that point on. The Cardinals scored two runs in the third, three in the fourth, eight in the fifth, and two in the sixth, with 14 hits in the game. Four hitters had two-hit games and one had a three-hit game.

Crivitz was led at the plate by Raegan Nelsen, who went 2-3 with two runs scored and one batted in.

Cilena Guns was 1-3 with one RBI and one run, and Emery Nelsen had two RBIs.

Isabelle Danielczak ended up with the loss. She threw the first 4.2 innings and allowed 14 runs on 13 hits and six walks.



Lady Badgers Post

Tough Win Over

Gillett/Suring

The Niagara Badgers narrowly edged Gillett/Suring on Monday by an 8-6 score despite just five hits in the game.

The Badgers made the most of their hits, walking 12 times, being hit by a pitch, and forcing the G/S defense into two errors.

Niagara led 2-0 after the first inning, with Abby Wells and Abigail Richtig each walking and scoring. On the flip side, Badgers pitcher Abby Wells struck out the side in order.

In the third and fourth, respectively, Lillian Loukus and Wells walked and scored, and after Emily Peterson reached on an error and scored, Niagara led 4-3.

Malory Sanicki walked and scored in the fifth and Emma Broullire singled and scored in the sixth, but the game was tied going into the final inning, with sixth-inning runs by Hailey Vanrens and Parker Zahn knotting the game at six. Niagara committed two errors in the inning.

In the top of the seventh, Niagara's first two hitters were retired on a flyout and grounder to second. That moved things to the top of the lineup, and they came through.

Wells singled, her fourth time on base in the game, then stealing or advancing on wild pitches for each of the next three bases. Emma Broullire reached on an error and scored on a Richtig single to make it 8-6.

Gillett/Suring wasn't done. Emma Kristoff reached on an error, but the next two hitters both grounded to second. Vanrens walked and Zahn singled home Kristof, and a groundout ended the game with runners on second and third.

Runners left on base had a big impact in the game. Niagara left eight runners in scoring position and seven G/S hitters to reach second or third didn't make it home.

For Niagara, Richtig was 1-5 with a run and two RBIs and Josie Learned was 1-4 with two RBIs. Wells went 1-2 with three walks and three runs. Broullire scored twice on a 1-4 day.

Zahn went 2-4 with a run, an RBI, and a triple. Gillett/Suring was held to four hits in the game by Wells, who went seven innings, allowing six runs (two earned), with 10 strikeouts and six walks.



Stranded Runners

Leave Crivitz With

a Loss Against

Three Lakes/Phelps

Crivitz had 18 hits Monday against Three Lakes/Phelps, but they didn't translate into runs, as the game ended in a 15-6 defeat for the Wolverines.

Three Lakes/Phelps scored six runs in the first inning to set the tone early, with five walks, a hit batter, and five hits in the inning. In the second, they added two more runs on the back of five walks.

The lead sat at 8-4, with Crivitz scoring two in the first inning on hits by Lexi Franzmeier, Maddy Welty, Raegan Nelsen, and Emery Nelsen.

Franzmeier singled and scored a second run of the game in the second and nine-hitter Megan Pusick singled and scored as well.

Crivitz went quiet in the middle innings, with no runs from the third to the fifth, though the Wolverines had at least one runner in scoring position in each inning.

Four more hits in the sixth pushed two runs across, but Three Lakes/Phelps scored two in the sixth and one in the seventh, with three hits in the sixth and four walks in the seventh.

The difference in the game was walks. Three Lakes/Phelps batters walked 18 times in the game to just two walks issued by the team's pitcher, Mari Szews.

Limiting walks and striking out 12 hitters to keep runners from advancing played a big part in Szews' limiting of the Wolverine offense.

Megan Pusick pitched the majority of the game for Crivitz, allowing seven runs (five earned) in 5.2 innings. She walked 10 and struck out three. Isabelle Danielczak allowed eight runs in one inning of work and Tayah Werner got one out without allowing any runs.

Welty had a four-hit game, scoring two runs in the game.

Hailee Gyger was 3-5 with two RBIs and a run scored, and Franzmeier went 2-5 with two runs scored.

Both Nelsens and Tayah Werner had RBIs, and Pusick was 2-4 with a run scored.



Sevastopol Takes Down

Crivitz in Shut Out

Everything was going right for Sevastopol in a three-inning, 18-0 win over Crivitz on Saturday.

Sevastopol took a 6-0 lead in the first inning, scored on in the second, and then exploded for 11 runs in the third.

Walks hurt Crivitz pitchers, as those 18 runs came on just six hits. Sevastopol batters walked 18 times in the game, including 11 times in the third inning alone. Eight of nine hitters on the team scored two or more runs.

Crivitz had four hits in the game, two of them coming from leadoff hitter Lexi Franzmeier, who went 2-2 with two steals. Tayah Werner and Raegan Nelsen had hits in their only plate appearances.

Megan Pusick took the loss for Crivitz. She pitched 2.1 innings.



Schlies No-Hitter Leads

Wausaukee Past STAA

Rachel Schlies no-hit Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas Academy on Tuesday in a 16-4 Wausaukee win.

Schlies hit four batters and allowed one walk, striking out nine in the five-inning hitless performance.

Melody Schaal was the top Wausaukee hitter, going 2-3 with a two-run double in the third inning.
