Algoma High School volleyball hosts five schools Saturday including Sevastopol. Other teams participating are Crivitz, Mishicot, Reedsville, and Two Rivers. 

Algoma has lost its last two matches in straight sets. The final score from Thursday against NEW Lutheran was 14-25, 19-25, 23-25. Sevastopol swept the Stockbridge Invitational Tuesday night defeating Stockbridge and St. Thomas Aquinas.

Algoma football spoils Sturgeon Bay homecoming

The Algoma High School football team entered Friday night playing their best football of the season, shutting out their last two opponents. Algoma did not get the goose egg against Sturgeon Bay but they coasted to a 52-10 win. Sturgeon Bay did all its scoring in the fourth quarter including a safety of backup Wolves quarterback Kaden Vardon. The Clippers touchdown was a 7-yard pass from Anthony Jennerjohn to receiver Drew Price. Price worked out of the left slot, crossing the middle of the field towards the right hash while catching the ball in stride.

Algoma has several big-play threats but Friday it was Carter Zimmerman who stole the show. #10 had five touchdown runs in the first half including scampers of 45, 35, and 20 yards. Sturgeon Bay's defense had Algoma in third-and-long situations early on but couldn't get off the field. Then things snowballed. Algoma went up 52-0 on the first play of the second half before putting things in cruise control.

Wolves volleyball fall on the road

Algoma football looks to spoil Clipper homecoming

Fresh off back-to-back shutouts the Algoma Wolves travel to Sturgeon Bay to face a team that put up 38 points last week. Sturgeon Bay is 0-3 on the season but they are making noticeable improvements week-to-week. This will be a tougher test for Algoma than the Williams Bay Bulldogs provided on Saturday. Head Coach Wade Vandervest says it is important to not get caught in the hoopla of an opponent's homecoming.


Algoma defeated Sturgeon Bay in the final week of the regular season in 2018, the last 11-man football game for both programs. The final score that night was 44-0. 


Algoma dominates Williams Bay on 96.7 WBDK

Jordon Deringer was all over the field for Algoma. He scored three touchdowns in the first half and had two other touchdowns called back by penalties. Deringer also picked off a pass and recovered a fumble.


Algoma led 28-0 after the first quarter and 44-0 at the half. It became a running clock in the first half. Carter Zimmerman threw a touchdown pass to both Chase Peronto and Brett Benesh. Zimmerman also ran in a touchdown and returned the opening kickoff of the second half for a score. Williams Bay didn't have a first down until playing against Algoma's backups in the fourth quarter. Freshman Kaden Vardon capped off the game by scoring his first career touchdown.

Algoma volleyball hangs on against Peshtigo

Algoma blanks Gillett Friday 42-0

The Wolves cruised to an easy victory over Gillett Friday rebounding from their first loss of the year in convincing fashion, 42-0. Gillett struggled to get to 120 yards of total offense and Algoma found a fast start. The Wolves put up 20 in the first quarter and another 16 in the second to lead 36-0 at halftime. It was all on the ground for the Wolves. Quarterback Carter Zimmerman only had two passing attempts with one completion for 15 yards. Six running backs were used in committee to help replace Oliver Robertson who missed his second consecutive contest. The feature back was Jordan Derringer with 15 carries and three touchdowns.

Algoma soccer shuts out Kewaunee

Trevor Nell got the only score of the half on long direct kick.  2nd half things opened up more and we were able to punch some in.  Riley Reinhardt scored about one minute in the second half on long ball assist from Padrien Duerst.  Justin Dragosh hit the next one 2 minutes later on a pass from Trevor Nell.  Freshman Riley Robinson got the next one unassisted.  Brevin Robertson got number 5 on a corner kick from Trevor Nell.  The final score was by Haakon Utesh on a penalty kick.

Algoma football tries to learn from loss

The Wolves got off to a slow start last week against Newman Catholic and paid for it with their first loss of the season and their first loss in eight-man football. Head Coach Wade Vandervest said that it only took six minutes to dig a deep hole.


Vandervest says that the slow starts had been identified as an issue but it is hard to get through to young players when they're winning. Now that the team has seen how it can hurt them, Vandervest believes they are ready to learn from the Newman Catholic game. Gillett is 2-1 on the year. Their only loss was to Gibraltar in Week Two.

Algoma soccer rallies past NEW Lutheran

Algoma came back in the second half to knock off NEW Lutheran on the road Monday night, 2-1. The only goal of the first half went to NEW's Antonio Barras. His shot caromed off an Algoma defender into the back of the net from inside the box. Shortly after halftime, the Wolves tied it up. Padrein Duerst used a header to net a crossing attempt from Reily Reinhart. An unassisted Algoma goal by Justin Dragosh was the deciding score. NEW Lutheran had a golden opportunity to tie the game late on a penalty kick. The effort went off the crossbar and stayed out. Algoma goalie Haakon Utesh had 14 saves.

Algoma football suffers first eight-man loss

Algoma Head Coach Wade Vandervest said earlier in the week that Newman Catholic would be the Wolves' biggest eight-man test to date. On Friday night, Algoma fell short in answering that challenge. The Fighting Cardinals picked up a 42-12 victory on the road. Quarterback Ben Bates ran for two scores and threw for another as Newman Catholic jumped out to a 28-0 halftime lead. Algoma tried to fire back in the third, scoring twice. QB Carter Zimmerman had a one-yard touchdown run before finding Chase Peronto for 50 yards. Both touchdown drives had unsuccessful two-point attempts. After three, it was 28-12. Algoma's defense couldn't slam the door shut for the entire second half though. Newman Catholic scored two more times in the fourth to round out the scoring.


Algoma was missing running back Oliver Robertson who was hurt on special teams in Week Two at Sevastopol with the game well in hand in the second half. Algoma travels to Gillett on Friday.

Algoma volleyball sweeps Sevastopol Thursday

Each set got progressively more competitive Thursday night at Algoma High School as the Wolves broomed Sevastopol 25-10, 25-14, 25-17. That may be the only positive takeaway for the Pioneers who fell to 1-6 on the season. Algoma is now 6-4, winners of five straight. Thursday's win was a true team effort. Sydney Zimmerman led the Wolves at the net with 16 kills. Captain Jacklyn Dean had 16 assists offensively to go with seven service aces. She was active on defense, picking up three blocks and 15 digs. Setter Hanna Weise had seven aces and 22 overall service points. She chipped in 10 kills offensively too. Wiese racked up 14 digs on defense. Algoma's next matchup is next Thursday against Peshtigo. 

Algoma football gears up for Newman Catholic

Head Coach Wade Vandervest believes Newman Catholic could pose the greatest challenge for Algoma this season. The Wolves are 2-0 in 2019 and have outscored their opponents by a combined 80-6. In the first three quarters of their week two matchup at Sevastopol, the Algoma defense allowed just a single first down. Sevastopol quickly tried to go to the air to move the ball. Algoma handled it with general ease but Vandervest isn't ready to say that the Wolves will react as well to Newman's air raid offense. Their quarterback, Ben Tate, is completing 73 percent of his passes this year with eight touchdowns and zero interceptions. 

Algoma plans to counterattack the Fighting Cardinals with a creative wildcat style offense. Vandervest says Algoma developed the offense specifically for the eight-man game.


Those two athletes are Carter Zimmerman and Oliver Robertson. Robertson was injured on special teams in the second half last week. If he is unable to go Friday night, look for wingback Brett Benesh to pick up some of the slack. Benesh has 6 rushing attempts on the year for 167 yards, a 28 yard average per carry. Kick off is at 7 PM Friday night at Algoma High School.

Algoma volleyball opens conference play Thursday

Algoma volleyball is riding high coming off an undefeated effort at the Reedsville Invite last Friday. Coach Eric Dean says Algoma's main weakness is the team's lack of size. Combining that with graduations from key members of last year's squad, the result was players in new positions on the court. Volleyball teams only have one week of practice before their match so some of the gelling happened on the court, with growing pains visible. Packerland Conference play opens with the Wolves hosting Sevastopol. The Pioneers are 1-5 on the year. Of those five losses, four have been two-set sweeps. The teams have had no common opponents so far this year. First set starts Thursday at 7 PM.

Algoma volleyball undefeated in Reedsville

The Wolves came into Friday 1-4 on the year and entered the weekend at 5-4. It was a good, if long, day in Reedsville. The team boarded the bus at 6 AM and wrapped up the day late in the evening with four wins in between. Algoma swept Roncalli 25-18, 25-22 before brooming Mishicot 25-20, 25-14. The final two matches went three sets with the Wolves prevailing in each. Algoma had to scramble to nip Two Rivers 13-25, 26-24, 27-25 and fought fatigue against the Reedsville Panthers 23-25, 25-23, 25-18 to win the Reedsville Invite. Algoma has a well-deserved break, they do not return to the court until Thursday against Sevastopol.

Algoma volleyball falls to West De Pere Thursday

After a 1-3 showing at the Oconto Invitational to start the year, Algoma’s early-season struggles continued Thursday against West De Pere. The Wolves dropped the match three sets to one; 16-25, 21-25, 25-23, 21-25. It was a hard-fought contest. In Oconto, Algoma had trouble returning serves at times but those woes did not crop up again in this match. Jacklyn Dean, Hanna Weise, and Sydney Zimmerman led the way with 10 kills for Algoma. Head coach Eric Dean noted last week that the team lacks size. Algoma had only four total blocks in the game. Algoma wrapped up the week with another tournament in Reedsville on Friday.
