Rodgers-McCarthy dead horse exhumed for final lap

The number of days left until the NFL Draft is down to single digits, which is good because the offseason noise coming out of Green Bay was starting to sound like a soap opera.

“It’s been a good offseason,” Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. “A little too long, though.”

Rodgers was at the team’s voluntary workout last week, addressing the involuntary dragging through the mud that he was subject to in a recently published report.

The once-universally admired 35-year-old veteran was characterized in a long feature story as a self-interested whiner, a passive-aggressive mope whose act was wearing thin on his lesser-paid colleagues.

How Rodgers tumbled from the hero pedestal has much to do with the hive mind mentality, the tendency to kick those who are down, and how “down” can translate to a matter of wins and losses.

The Shawano Community High School baseball team was unable to get its offense going in a 14-0 Bay Conference loss in five innings to West De Pere on Monday.

The West De Pere pitching duo of Benjamin Hampton and Aidan Ahrens did not allow a hit and combined for 10 strikeouts.

“This is the measuring stick where I want the Shawano Hawk program to get. Joe (Rukamp — West De Pere’s coach) runs a quality program over here and every year since I’ve been coaching, 18 years, this has been the measuring stick here,” Shawano coach Rob Wolff said.

“Our pitchers got ahead in counts and then made mistakes, and they made us pay. Those are the things we have to learn from,” Wolff added. “We didn’t have a hit on the day, and you’re not going to beat anyone that way. That first pitcher (Hampton) is one of the best pitchers in the area but that’s no excuse, we have to put the ball in play.”


Track and field: Bonduel girls 3rd, boys 5th at CWC-Large Meet

Tigerton’s Minniecheske signs letter of intent

Tigerton High School senior Monika Minniecheske took a step toward continuing her athletic career on Friday when she signed a letter of intent to play at Ripon College.

Minniecheske, who plans to join both the volleyball and track and field teams for the Red Hawks, got to make her college decision official at Ripon College, with her mother, Amy, in attendance.

“It means so much that my sports career isn’t over and that my future teammates are excited for me to join them and hopefully become best friends one day,” Minniecheske said. “It’ll be fun to see myself proceed to get better and see what I can actually overcome as an athlete.”

The senior said she and her family hired a scout to get her name out to college coaches and that several schools were interested.

A visit to Ripon was the clincher for Minniecheske.

“I took the time out to visit the campus, and as soon as I got there, I pretty much fell in love,” she said.
