Gresham scores key victory over Northland Lutheran

A Tuesday night showdown with Central Wisconsin Conference-North Division-leading Northland Lutheran figured to be a tough test for Gresham.

The challenge grew when the Gresham players found out coach Tim Wild would miss the game due to illness. Throw that on top of the fact that the team was also hoping to earn the victory on senior night, and Gresham had plenty of reasons to win — but also plenty of pressure to do so.

That pressure seemed to factor into the first set as Northland Lutheran grabbed the lead, but Gresham responded in a big way to earn a key victory. The hosts claimed the battle of the Wildcats, winning by scores of 19-25, 25-21, 25-23, 25-14.

Junior Karisa Nietzer said it was definitely a win for coach Wild. “We knew he was sick, but he really wanted us to win this one. This was a really big match.”

Deer carcass rule suspended by state

The Joint Committee for Review of Administrative Rules voted to suspend portions of an emergency rule that would have restricted deer carcass transportation in CWD-affected counties at its Monday meeting.

As a result, carcass transport regulation changes included in the original emergency rule, approved by the state Natural Resources Board at its Aug. 8 meeting, are not in effect as previously announced. The 2018 deer hunting regulations and deer carcass movement restrictions website have been updated to reflect this change and revert back to 2017 carcass transportation rules.

Bonduel’s LaBerge fires 104 at sectionals

Bonduel senior Jessie LaBerge and Shawano sophomore Taylor Johnson concluded their standout seasons on the golf course over the past couple of days while taking part in sectional play.

LaBerge fired a round of 104 at the Division 2 Xavier Sectional at Ridgeway Country Club in Neenah on Monday.

LaBerge shot a 50 on the front nine and 54 on the back nine and finished tied for 13th as an individual. She finished nine shots behind the third and final individual state qualifier.

“The conditions yesterday definitely made the course more difficult,” LaBerge said Tuesday. “Luckily, it didn’t start raining hard until the 14th hole. I hit the ball well throughout the whole match yesterday, but the tough greens caused some high scores.”

Despite falling short of the ultimate goal of state, LaBerge still enjoyed a memorable season.

Hawks’ homecoming comeback falls short

Leading by 28 points at halftime, the Xavier football team looked to be on its way to a convincing Bay Conference win over Shawano. The hosts had other plans though.

Shawano scored 21 unanswered points to open the second half and cut its deficit down to seven before Xavier took advantage of a Shawano turnover and scored to up its lead to 13. Another late turnover sealed a 41-28 win for Xavier on homecoming Saturday in Shawano.

Trailing 35-7, Shawano attempted and recovered an onside kick to open the second half. The duo of sophomore Gage Timm and senior Crede Timm led the hosts down the field on the ground before Crede Timm recovered a fumble in the end zone.

“I think it was what the coaches said at halftime, it kind of lit a fire under us,” Crede Timm said of the team’s play in the second half. “We understood the message that we needed to fight back and not let teams roll over us like it’s going to be an easy win.”
