Wolves football look to bounceback win against Gillett

For only the fourth time in their short Eight-Player football history, the Algoma Wolves will look for a bounceback win when they head to Gillett for their first Friday night game of the season.


The Wolves struggled to get their offense rolling against Gibraltar in a 42-8 defeat last Saturday. The team gained less than 150 yards including just 16 through the air. Head coach Wade Vandervest told NRSN's Jacob Nate after the game last week that they just have to reset and move on.

Despite the loss, the Wolves are still outscoring their opponents 110-76 and outgaining them on the ground 826-651.

Algoma takes trip to Green Bay to face Blazers

The Algoma boys soccer team will travel to Green Bay for a match against the Blazers of Green Bay NEW Lutheran/Providence Academy. 


Algoma (4-2 Overall, 1-2 Packerland), has been solid this season, as they are on a 4 game winning streak since losing to the two teams at the top of the Packerland in Gibraltar/Sevastopol and Sturgeon Bay. In that 4 game winning streak, the Wolves have outscored their opponents by an impressive score of 11-2. The Wolves will look to keep that up against a Blazers team that is fresh off of a loss to Kiel on Monday. 


The Blazers (4-4-1 Overall, 2-1 Packerland), have lost 3 in a row ever since beating Kewaunee 7-0. The losing has come against good competition, and NEW Lutheran/Providence Academy will look to get back to winning ways as they welcome in the Wolves. 


The match is set for 4:30 P.M. in Green Bay. 

Wolves to host Blazers in Packerland matchup

The Algoma girls volleyball team will see the Blazers of NEW Lutheran/Providence Academy come to town in a Packerland conference matchup. 


Algoma (3-3 Overall, 1-1 Packerland), has built off of their good end to their season last year getting out to a .500 start on the year. Even when the Wolves lose, they have kept it close all year. Algoma has not been swept in any match so far this season and have only swept one team, with that being Oconto. 


The Blazers (12-4 Overall, 2-0 Packerland), have been strong in their opening matches so far this season, beating Kewaunee in 3 sets and going to 4 with Gibraltar, but still getting the job done. NEW will look to stay undefeated in the Packerland when they face the Wolves. 


The match is set for 7:00 P.M. in Algoma at Fulweiler Fieldhouse.  


Algoma cross country visits Sheboygan

Algoma battles NEC opponent on the road

The Wolves (3-2 Overall, 1-2 Packerland), are on a 3 match winning streak and are looking to extend that against the Vikings on Tuesday. After beating Peshtigo, the Wolves had a tournament on Saturday and went 2-0 in their two games played. Denmark could be a chance for the Wolves to go to 4-2. 


Denmark (0-3 Overall, 0-2 NEC), has struggled out of the gate so far this season, being outscored in their 3 matches 14-2. The Vikings will have to get their offensive attack going if they want to match up well with the Wolves. 


The match is set to start at 4:30 P.M.

Algoma, Gibraltar battle for Peninsula Conference supremacy on 105.1 The GOAT

Two undefeated squads in the newly formed Peninsula Conference will go head to head Saturday afternoon when Algoma plays host to Gibraltar.


The Wolves have opened up 2-0 on the young season, winning soundly against Oneida Nation/NEW Lutheran and Wausaukee. Winning is nothing new for the Wolves, who have gone 16-3 since joining Eight-Player football. All three losses have come against eventual playoff teams, including the state-runner-up Newman Catholic in 2019. Head coach Wade Vandervest is thankful for the talented players he has had to coach during that their run in Eight-Player football to have that kind of success.

The Vikings also enter the game 2-0 after convincing wins against Sevastopol and Suring. They were a miscommunication on a blocked kick away from posting two shut-outs on the season. Winning the Peninsula Conference means beating an Algoma team that has not been done before and a challenge head coach Mike Peck knows his team is prepared for.

Both teams have twin threats that can hurt you in multiple ways in Algoma's Grant Vandervest and Kale Vardon and Gibraltar's Rylan Caldecott and Brady Kita. All four players lead their respective teams in multiple offensive categories.


Jacob Nate and Reece Robillard will have the call on 105.1 The GOAT and beginning at 1 p.m. with the pregame show followed by the new kickoff time of 1:15 p.m. You can click the links below for the full interviews with head coaches Wade Vandervest and Mike Peck

Wolves volleyball sweep Blue Devils

The Algoma Wolves volleyball team earned a hard-earned sweep of the Oconto Blue Devils on Thursday.


The Wolves topped the Blue Devils 25-20, 25-16, 25-20. Leading the way for the Wolves were Amelia Robinson (17 Assists, 1 Ace), Ryley Zimmerman (27 Digs, 10 Kills, 1 Ace), MyLee Jones (20 Digs, 8 Kills, 2 Aces) and Hannah Nell (6 Assists, 6 Kills, 1 Ace).

Algoma stays home to face Peshtigo

One of Algoma or Peshtigo will get their first conference win Thursday night as the Wolves and Bulldogs match up in a Packerland conference game. 


Algoma is 0-2 coming into the game, both losses coming from conference games against Gibraltar/Sevastopol and Sturgeon Bay. The Wolves have only given up a combined 4 goals in those two matchups, losing to the Vikineers on a penalty kick the first game of the year. The Wolves have not scored a goal all season, but that could change tonight against Peshtigo. 


The Bulldogs are 0-2 in the Packerland as well, but have picked up a win in non-conference this season. That one win came against NEC opponent Marinette 2-1, but the win was pancaked between a loss to NEW Lutheran/Providence Academy 4-0 and Gibraltar/Sevastopol 2-0. 


The match is set for 4:30 in Algoma. 

Algoma travels to Oconto for Packerland test

The Algoma Wolves lost a 5-Set thriller to the West De Pere Phantoms on Tuesday night, and are back on the floor tonight against the Oconto Blue Devils. 


Don’t let the Wolves’ 2-3 record fool you, they appear to be a team that will compete with almost everyone in the Packerland Conference this year. After losing their last two to Peshtigo and the nailbiter to West De Pere, Algoma is hoping that they can play upset to the reigning Conference Champions Oconto. 


Oconto’s record is similar to Algoma were they’ve played some great competition, leading to the Blue Devils’ 2-11 overall record, but a 1-0 conference record. Oconto has been playing against some steep Fox Valley competition, but was in 3 close sets against Gibraltar before eventually sweeping them. 


First serve is set for 7:00 P.M. in Oconto.

Algoma volleyball squares off against Peshtigo

The first conference matchup of the year for the Algoma Wolves comes at home against the Peshtigo Bulldogs. 


After a challenging 2-6 season in Packerland conference play, the Wolves ended it on a high note, upsetting packerland conference team Southern Door in 3 sets in the opening round. The Wolves appear to possibly be building off of that, with a 2-1 start in tournament play this season. 


Peshtigo began their season with 10 matches in tournament play, splitting those games evenly, going 5-5. A 3rd place season for the Bulldogs last season was something for them to continue into this season, and a good benchmark for the Wolves for how much they have improved for this season. 


First serve is set for 7:00 P.M. in Algoma. 

Algoma soccer welcomes in Sturgeon Bay in conference clash

The Algoma Wolves soccer team will face off against a ready Sturgeon Bay Clippers team on Thursday night after narrowly losing their first match 1-0 to the Vikineers last Thursday. 


Algoma, who had a challenging year last season, looked much improved in their match against Gibraltar/Sevastopol, will look to play upset against the Clippers of Sturgeon Bay. Garrett Voight of the Vikineers scored the game-winning goal against Algoma on a penalty kick to win that game 1-0 for Gibraltar/Sevastopol. 


Sturgeon Bay is 2-2-1 on the season after once again challenging themselves in their non-conference schedule. With very close losses to teams like Notre Dame and Pulaski, it appears that Sturgeon Bay will once again have a strong case for a deep run once again. 


The match is set for 4:30 P.M. in Algoma.
