Wolves boys never trail; defeat Hilltoppers

The Algoma Wolves were able to split their results of the Elkhart Lake tournament Friday, as they defeated the Cambria-Friesland Hilltoppers 58-40. 


The Wolves got out to the early lead in the game, leading 7-0 within the first 3 minutes of play. The scoring would not slow down for the Wolves as they plowed their way over the Hilltoppers with some solid outside shooting and spreading the scoring around. Algoma would continue their lead into half with a score of 28-20. 


The second half is when the Wolves truly began to pull away from the Hilltoppers, leading by as much as 23 with a 58-35 lead with 3:23 to play. Cambria-Friesland tried to climb back into it, but there was not enough time as they shut out the Wolves for the rest of the game, but could not register enough offense. 


Algoma will next take the court against Peshtigo on January 5th.

For the Spartans, Chase Bukouricz (12 points) and Jack Rollin (11 points) each reached double figures in the loss.

Wolves girls set to host Pioneers

The Algoma Wolves are set to host the Sevastopol Pioneers in a showdown of Packerland conference leaders Friday night. 


Algoma is fresh off of an exhilarating 57-54 overtime final over the Peshtigo Bulldogs Tuesday night. Ryley Zimmerman and Halle Panger were leading scorers in that one with 18 and 12 respectively, but the Wolves also got a strong performance from Emily Kirchman who dropped in 8 points herself. From one conference contender to facing off against another one in Sevastopol, the Wolves should be ready for anything the Pioneers throw their way. 


Sevastopol was able to dominate the Sturgeon Bay Clippers Tuesday night 95-23 in a game where Bailey Rikkola accomplished 1000 points in her career. The Pioneers led 60-7 at halftime in that game, and had complete control all the way through. Sevastopol remains undefeated on the season going into this matchup, with their record sitting at 7-0.

Wolves boys travel to Oconto to face Blue Devils

The Algoma Wolves will travel to Oconto to take on the Oconto Blue Devils for a Packerland conference matchup on Friday night. 


After starting their season with a win over NEWCHAA, the Algoma Wolves will look to end their 3 game losing streak. Kaden Vardon has emerged as the leading scorer for the Wolves replacing Carter Zimmerman’s impact from last season.

For Oconto, they fell recently to the Sturgeon Bay Clippers 74-70. Kadin Baxter and Carter Koch are the Blue Devils top scorers, and seem to have the ability to score at will at times from all three levels.

Wolves girls fight for first against Oconto

Algoma’s girls basketball team has been impressive thus far this season, and they will look to continue that good start against the Blue Devils of Oconto. 


A spread of balanced scoring for the Wolves has been the story of the season, led statistically by Junior Ryley Zimmerman. Not only has it been Zimmerman however, as Ella Madden, Halle Panger, and Sierra Slaby have all done their fair share of scoring. Algoma sits at 2-0 in Packerland play, and in a tie for first place with their opponent Oconto. 


The Blue Devils have not skipped a beat from last season, even with losing unanimous Packerland conference Player of the Year Lianna Baxter. With wins over Sturgeon Bay and Southern Door, Oconto can move into a clear lead for first place with a win over Algoma, but it could also be vice versa. The Blue Devils can thank their underclassmen for their success so far, as Addisyn Viestenz and Madilyn Thomson are averaging over 15 points per game. 


Tip is scheduled for 7:30 in Algoma.
