Veteran John Teller’s lifelong passion for golf became his “saving grace” after returning from the military.

After honing his game over the past several years, he’ll compete against 79 other veterans from around the country from Oct. 8-11 at the Veteran Golfers Association National Championship in Mississippi.

Teller was one of 20 golfers in the central region to advance to the tournament after qualifying at the regional championship in Michigan in August. He is of six Wisconsin golfers in the tournament.

“I’m very honored and proud to not only represent my community, family and branch of service in the military, but also the nation and patriots throughout time that have provided us the freedom to be able to enjoy things like this in our country,” Teller said.

Packers renew deep-rooted rivalry with sputtering Cowboys

Peripheral drama usually isn’t necessary to produce fireworks when the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys get together.

The matter of who’s standing, sitting, singing, kneeling or burning a jersey takes a back seat to a rivalry fully steeped in big-game history.

Before the 1967 “Ice Bowl” – which many consider the most famous football game ever played – there was the late-game interception in the end zone that stopped the Cowboys and pushed the Packers into the first-ever Super Bowl.

Dallas fans still rue the no-catch call in the 2014 playoffs that negated a Dez Bryant reception at the Packer 1-yard line, killing a drive and ultimately enabling a 26-21 win for the Pack.

And, don’t get them started on last year’s playoff thriller.

Tigerton Elementary School kids had the chance to practice like the Green Bay Packers during a Youth Football Outreach Camp on Tuesday.

The Packers hosted the camp as part of the NFL Play 60 program to tackle childhood obesity by getting kids active for one hour each day.

“The running is my favorite part,” fifth-grader Joey Zimdars said, “and diving for the ball like a professional player.”

“You look around and you see all the kids are smiling and having fun,” Packers youth football coordinator Ryan Fencl said. “Whether they go home and are watching TV or playing on their phones or other technology in this day and age, this gives them a way to make sure they’re getting some activity in their day.”

The event was held at Tigerton High School and included about 90 first- through fifth graders. The kids were able to run through football drills including kicking, throwing, leaping for a catch, diving for a touchdown and a relay race.

Zook qualifies for state golf meet

Shawano’s Brianna Zook qualified for state Tuesday by shooting a 90 on the par-72 Thornberry Creek Golf Course at a WIAA Division 1 sectional.

Zook, who finished fourth, was one of three individual qualifiers from the tournament in Oneida, joining Waupaca’s Mark Ash (82) and Notre Dame’s Emily Conard (92).
Bay Port’s Jo Baranczyk (76) placed first.

Zook is a three-time sectional qualifier, but this is her first time making it to state.

“It feels great to qualify my senior year,” she said. “I’m proud that I was able to shoot a 90 today because it was tough out there with the wind.”

Shawano placed fifth at the tournament in Oneida with a score of 399, finishing behind Bay Port (369), Green Bay Preble (381), Waupaca (384) and Notre Dame (392). Bay Port and Preble advanced to state as teams.

The state meet will be held Oct. 9 and 10 in Madison.

Bonduel defense grounds Chargers

Bonduel forced five turnovers and converted them all into points to beat Wittenberg-Birnamwood 62-14 in Central Wisconsin Conference-Large action Friday.

The Bears’ defense recorded two fumble recoveries and three interceptions, two of which they returned for touchdowns.

Jacob Banker intercepted a Trevor Groshek pass on fourth-and-6 and returned it 84 yards to close the first half. Isaac Banker added a 34-yard pick-6 to open the second half.

“Our goal is always to get better, and I think a difference maker in tonight’s game is how hard we prepared this week,” Bonduel head coach James Estrich said. “Defensively, they were aggressive tonight. They did a nice job executing and blocking on those interceptions so we could gain some yards.”

Isaac Garside scored three Bonduel touchdowns in the first half, including one set up by a Witt-Birn fumble.
