Coleman Clips Crivitz in M&O Tourney Title Game

Issue Date: May 26, 2022

M&O Conference Co-champions Coleman and Crivitz met again on Friday. This time the Cougars beat the Wolverines in the M&O Conference Championship Game.

Coleman took a 1-0 lead in the first inning on a Noah Nosgovitz sacrifice fly that scored Will Bieber, but Crivitz took a 2-1 lead on a two-RBI single by Eli Gruszynski in the second.

In a seesaw game, Coleman retook control in the fourth, with Nosgovitz tripling in Karson Casper, who had reached on an error, and Logan Kurth hitting a sac fly to bring Nosgovitz in.

Will Beiber singled home Joe Olsen and Trent Mongin in the top of the fifth to extend the lead to 5-2, and Olsen tripled in Kurth in the sixth to make it 6-2.

An error brought in a runner in the seventh, and the tying run was brought to the plate, but Ray Lemieux got the final two outs, relieving Casper, who had gone 6.1 innings, allowing three unearned runs on three hits and three walks. He struck out eight.

Bieber was 2-4 with two RBIs and a run, Lemieux was 2-4, Nosgovitz went 1-3 with a run and two RBIs, and both Olsen and Mongin were 2-3 with a run, with Olsen also adding an RBI.

Eli Gruszynski was 1-4 with two RBIs for Crivitz. Seth Sellen scored a run as well and Jacob Behrendt was 1-4 with a run.

Coleman's regular season record sits at 21-1 overall. The Cougars' lone loss was a 5-1 defeat at Crivitz on May 13, but they avenged that loss on the road Friday.

"Nobody likes to share, but that's part of it. Crivitz played well and we didn't [on May 13]," Coleman coach Kent Casper said. "Today was something, I wanted to see how, coming to this field, they were going to perform, and they did."

The Wolverines shared the M&O baseball title for the first time in school history.

"We had a lot of good teams over the years that fell just short, so I'm happy for the kids that we're having the year we're having right now," Crivitz coach Jeff Dorschner said. "I like where we're at right now. This is a group that competes, and they've all bought in with each other. From a chemistry standpoint, it's one of the stronger teams I've had over the years. We're fine. Our hitting has been pretty consistent this year. Today, we just weren't able to get the big hit with two outs. We had guys on base but couldn't come up with that big hit."



Wildcats Whip Bulldogs

in Postseason Tuneup

Game


Peshtigo couldn't find a timely hit to keep stride with Lena Tuesday night in the teams' final regular season game before playoffs begin Thursday.

Lena took a 2-0 lead after one inning after Ty Shallow was hit by a pitch, Josh Kristof reached on an error, and Lane Whiting doubled them both home.

Bryce Kittredge singled and scored on a sacrifice fly in the second, and Logan Shallow reached on an error and scored in the third.

Peshtigo got one run in the fourth when Landon Lemke singled to lead off the inning and scored on an error but the Bulldogs never got another run despite putting four runners in scoring position over the next two innings.

The Wildcats made Peshtigo pay in the seventh, scoring six runs on five hits, two hit batters, a walk, and an error.

"We had runners all over the bases today," Peshtigo coach Neal Henrigillis said. "We got on base and got guys over. We had a lot of runners in scoring position, we had a couple of good bunts, we just couldn't get that timely hit, which late in the year, you need that hit."

Freshman Levi Nemec got the start on the mound for Peshtigo, with the Bulldogs opting to save their experienced varsity arms for the postseason. Nemec pitched this season at the JV level and had a good season, so Henrigillis rewarded him with a varsity start in the final game of the regular season.

He went 6 and a third innings, allowing four runs. Just two were earned. He struck out seven batters, which is something Lena coach Doug Jahnke said he wants to see his team improve going into the playoffs.

"We still gave up better than half a dozen strikeouts, and that's too many, by my book," he said. "We always say if we strike out less than four times and score more than eight, we'll win most times. We didn't hit as well as I would've liked to see, but we took advantage of some timely walks."

Henrigillis was obviously pleased with what he saw from Nemec's varsity debut.

"He did a fantastic job. Levi is a kid who, as a freshman, is going to grow into his body, he's going to throw a lot harder by the time he's a senior, but the thing he does do is he mixes pitches really well. It's the end of the year, so he's built up his pitch count, he started a lot of guys off with off-speed pitches, and he throws a ton of strikes," Henrigillis said. "Even though he's a freshman, he's a really good example for even our older pitchers that if you can get ahead in a count, then you can kind of mix things in. He got ahead in counts, threw a ton of strikes, and from there, then you get the hitters off-balance."

For the Wildcats, Logan Shallow reached base three times with one single, an RBI, and a run scored. Logan Shallow was 2-4 with two runs scored, Kristof scored twice, Whiting was 2-4 with a double and a run, and Kittredge scored twice on a 2-4 day.

Lena is a four seed in Division 4, taking on Niagara on Thursday night. The winner gets No. 1 Florence on the road.

The Bulldogs are a five seed in D3. They take on No. 4 Bonduel on the road Thursday. With a win, top-seeded Coleman awaits.

Despite some offensive struggles this season, Henrigillis is still holding out hope that Thursday will be the day the offense breaks out.

"Our pitching has been pretty good all year long, we've been holding guys down, our defense has been alright, but hitting wise, if we can score four, five runs a game, I think we could get over the top," he said. "Our bats have still yet to wake up. My hope is that somewhere between here and Thursday, they wake up."



Cougars Get 20th Win

of Season Over Lena


Coleman scored eight runs in the fifth inning to secure its 20th win of the season, an 11-7 victory over Lena, on Tuesday.

Coleman led 2-0 after two innings, but Lena took control with four runs in the fourth and three runs in the fifth to lead 7-3.

Coleman strung together five singles, three walks, and a couple of Wildcat errors to regain an 11-7 lead in the fifth, which the Cougars would hold onto without any trouble.

Logan Kurth started the game and was coasting along for Coleman before running into a bit of trouble in the fourth. He finished with 3.2 innings pitched, allowing four earned runs on six hits and three walks, striking out seven.

Ray Lemieux came in to get the final out of the fourth and got the win, going 3.1 strong, allowing three runs (one earned) on four hits. He struck out five Wildcats.

Logan Graef took the loss, allowing one run in just a third of an inning. Lane Whiting started the game and allowed six runs (four earned) over four innings and Ty Shallow allowed four earned over the final five outs.

Reed Hosking was 2-4 with two runs scored and five RBIs for Lena. Shallow was 2-4 with two RBIs, and Graef was 2-4.

Whiting and Bryce Kittredge each scored twice.

For Coleman, Noah Nosgovitz went 2-4 with two runs scored and two RBIs, Karson Casper was 2-4 with two RBIS and one run, Lemieux was 1-2 with three runs, Eli Zablocki was 1-4 with a run and two RBIs, and Joe Olsen was 1-3 with two RBIs.



Rangers Fall to

Bobcats in Slugfest


Florence scored seven runs in the sixth to beat Wausaukee 12-7 on Monday evening.

Leading 5-2, the Bobcats blew the game open with seven in the sixth to take a 12-2 lead. Wausaukee scored four in the bottom half of the inning and one in the seventh, but it wasn't enough to mount a comeback.

Florence got a 3-3 day with two RBIs, two runs, and a double from Logan Shuls. William Kelley was 2-4 with two runs scored, and Bryce Leffler went 1-3 with a run and four RBIs. He tripled in the game.

Florence used five pitchers to get through the game. Tyler Novak ate the majority of the innings and got the win, going four strong, allowing no runs on four hits. He struck out five.

For Wausaukee, Danny Suennen was 2-3 with an RBI, Layne Rowley went 1-3 with two RBIs, and Kamden Stumbris was 1-2 with three runs scored. Nathan Shaw was 1-1 with two runs and two walks.



Wolverines Blast

Marinette to End

Crivitz ended the regular season 17-5 with a big road victory over Marinette on Tuesday.

The Wolverines led 2-0 after two innings, and scored nine runs over the fifth and sixth innings to get the win.

Kenny Andrekopoulos got the win, allowing two runs on seven hits and two walks. He got every out but one, with Dillan Gehm coming in to get the final out of the game.

Gehm had a big day at the plate, going 2-4 with a run scored and four RBIs. Logan Goltz was 1-3, scoring three runs and knocking one in, Eli Gruszynski was 2-3 with two RBIs and one run scored, and Tegan Werner went 2-4 with one run scored. Jacob Behrendt scored two runs and Kaiden Goltz was 1-3 with two RBIs.

Weston Hanson took the loss, allowing seven runs (three earned) in 4.1 innings.

At the plate, Adam Lemery and Landon Corwin-Young were each 2-3 for Marinette. Lemery scored a run and Corwin-Young had an RBI. Kolton Goldsmith was 1-2 with a run scored.



Xavier Defeats Crivitz

in Non-Conference

Showdown


Crivitz lost a playoff tune-up against Xavier on Monday after the Hawks scored seven runs in the bottom of the sixth.

The Wolverines led 4-0 after the top of the second, and held a 5-1 lead entering the fifth, when the Hawks offense got rolling. The Hawks scored once in the fifth and seven in the sixth to win the game.

Crivitz had eight hits in the game. Eli Gruzynski went 2-4 with a run and an RBI, Kaiden Goltz was 1-2 with two runs scored, and Sean Christiansen was 1-4 with two RBIs. Seth Sellen was 1-4 with a run and an RBI.

Jacob Behrendt took the loss. He was cruising through five innings, before failing to record an out in the sixth frame. He ended up with six earned runs on nine hits and four walks. He struck out four hitters.

Dillan Gehm came in for the remainder of the sixth, allowing three runs (two earned) in one inning.

Anthony Weyers got the win. After the Wolverines scored five runs off Joe Wittmann and Nick Valinski, Weyers came in to shut things down. He didn't allow a run, and allowed just one hit and no walks over 2.2 innings, striking out three.



Bulldogs Fall to Storm

in Packerland Finale


Peshtigo's final Packerland Conference baseball game of the season ended in defeat to Kewaunee by a 5-1 score.

Kewaunee scored one run in each of the first four innings and one in the sixth, while Peshtigo wasn't able to get much going with the bats.

The Bulldogs managed four hits in the game, with three of them coming from the bottom four hitters in the lineup. Trevor Walters was 1-3, and scored the Bulldogs' only run after reaching on an error and coming around on a Landon Beyer single in the sixth. Beyer was 1-3.

Storm pitchers struck out nine Bulldog hitters.

The Bulldogs used four pitchers. Jake Berth took the loss, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits. Landon Lemke threw one inning and allowed one unearned run, Beyer allowed one earned over two innings, and Will Boettcher allowed one unearned run over two innings.
