CWD surveillance efforts target Shawano, Oconto counties

Shawano and Bonduel both advanced to WIAA sectionals Wednesday with fourth-place finishes in their respective divisions.

Shawano secured the final qualifying spot at the Division 1 regional at Brown County Golf Course in Oneida. Bonduel advanced through the Division 2 regional at Mid Vallee Golf Club in De Pere.

This is the first time Shawano has qualified for sectionals during head coach Dean Kugler’s five years with the team.

“This is a huge step for us,” Kugler said. “Normally we can’t keep up with the top teams, so for us to be able to play alongside them and qualify for the next round is a big accomplishment.”

The Hawks, who were just shy of sectionals last year with a fifth-place finish, shot a 405, finishing behind Notre Dame (385), Bay Port (386) and Pulaski (388).

Shawano was led by all-conference first team seniors Brianna Zook (91) and Brinley Kowalkowski (98) on the par-73 course.

NFL’s oldest rivalry revisited as Packers host Bears

After all of the sideline demonstrating, the ticket-holder remonstrating and the executive agitating during the pre-game lead-ups, there was actually professional football being played this week.

If it’s hard to remember when the game had ever been so politicized, it’s because no such time has existed. The national anthem has taken on a polarizing life of its own, with players uniting to protest the quality of life here, and some fans protesting the protest by renouncing the NFL altogether.

It’s made you pine for the days when anthem controversies involved a simple, unintentional slaughtering of the tune – like the one by the reigning Francis Scott Off-Key of our era, Carl Lewis (whose version, if you’ve never heard it, is sadistic comedy gold).

As it is, there are public figures up to and including the Oval Office weighing in with incendiary remarks, ensuring that the nation’s division continues unabated.

Shawano continues to reign at home after sweeping Bonduel during Monday’s “Win the Battle” pink match.

The Hawks edged Bonduel 25-16, 25-17 and 25-18 after a slow start.

The Bears tallied a quick five points to open the first set and forced Shawano head coach Breanna Young to call a timeout.

“This is our house,” Young told her girls. “We need to change our mental game and play the game we know how to play.”

Bonduel errors gave the Hawks a chance to gain the momentum. After a Tori DePerry attack tied the score 14-14, Shawano took the lead for the first time and kept it through the rest of the set.

The Hawks (20-6, 2-1 Bay Conference) held a four-point lead in Set 2 before Bonduel rallied with a Grace Petcka tip, two kills and a Hawks service error to even the score 12-12. Shawano responded and Averi Vomastic ended the game with a kill.

Shawano welcomed Denmark to its field with touchdowns on all three first-half drives en route to a 35-14 nonconference victory on Friday.

The Hawks (3-3, 2-3 Bay Conference) rushed for 294 yards on the night and all five of their touchdowns.

Senior quarterback Jarrett Laatsch and junior running back Roman Purull combined for 225 of those yards and the five touchdowns; three by Laatsch and two by Purull.

In the first quarter, Laatsch’s 40-yard keeper down the sideline took the Hawks into the red zone and set up Purull for the games’ first score.

Purull has been a go-to player for the Hawks this season because of his ability to consistently gain yardage, which he confirmed with a 28-yard run into Vikings territory and subsequent 1-yard touchdown to give Shawano a 21-0 lead at halftime.

Bonduel back to winning in 32-14 victory

It’s become evident in the first six games of the season that the Bonduel football team loves to run the ball.

That’s exactly what the Bears did to host Shiocton on Friday night. Elijah Mastey went off for 150 yards on the ground as Bonduel scored five rushing touchdowns in scoring a 32-14 victory in Central Wisconsin Conference-Large action.

It was a rebound victory for Bonduel, which lost to Amherst last week in a battle for the conference lead.

“We definitely had some things we needed to improve on from last week, and defensively I liked the way we got off the ball and executed our scheme a little bit better, tackled a lot better,” Bonduel coach James Westrich said. “Offensively, we started out with that hurry-up, and the guys did a really good job running that. … All in all, I’m really happy with the way they played.”

With the win, Bonduel is now playoff eligible with three games remaining in the regular season.
