Algoma athletic department undergoes changes

There have been plenty of changes going on with the Algoma athletic department over the summer.


Former athletic director and current Middle and High School Principal David Robertson briefly spoke about the new changes that occurred at Algoma, including mentioning that they named some new staff members, and even added in collaboration with their Wellness and Fitness Center.



Whitney Ebert has stepped into the new role of Athletic Director, taking over the spot that Robertson previously had. Algoma’s new collaboration is open to not just the athletes of Algoma, Robertson said, but like everything they do, they want to involve as much of the school district as they can.


Robertson offered some very in depth insight on each sport and how he sees great potential for each athlete that competes at Algoma High School.



Sports though, is not all about competing and trying to win the match or game that you are in, sports can have an impact like no other on how it can help teens and adolescents that want to get involved in something.



As the ever so loved fall sports season will be upon us quickly, there will be no doubt that he will be in the stands or along the path cheering on his Wolves no matter what.


Algoma still out of playoff picture as WIAA announces football alignments

There was not much movement among the area's football teams among the WIAA's different divisions, which continues to be bad news for Algoma.


For eight-man football, you must have a three-year enrollment average of less than 200 students to be eligible. Even though the school's declining enrollment did reach 198 heading into this year, they are still averaging 203 students over the last three years. Gibraltar stayed steady at 185, and Sevastopol's enrollment went down compared to their three-year average of 182.


Sturgeon Bay may have had the biggest jump among local schools mostly because they switched back to 11-man football after three years of eight-man. They will play in Division 5 along with Packerland Conference rivals Kewaunee and Southern Door. Division 5 schools had to have an enrollment between 294 and 417, both a couple of ticks below the levels they were at last year.


Luxemburg-Casco will remain at Division 3 as of the smaller schools with an enrollment of 601. Division 3 schools are between 595 and 999 students.
