Vikings end decade-long streak against Cougars with win

The Gibraltar/Washington Island Vikings beat the Coleman Cougars 8-1 on Friday, beating them for the first time since 2014.

 

The Vikings scored their first run in the opening inning and returned the next frame. They put the game away in the fourth inning, taking advantage of two errors to go along with their five singles to plate four runs in the frame. The Cougars mustered only run as an answer to the Vikings' big blow.

 

Brady Kita led the way with two RBI and three hits in four at-bats. He also stole four bases in the game. Bennett Issacson-Krueger, Aaron Brey, Jaxin Lindgren all had two hits while Liam Lindenberg and Cam Munao knocked in runs along with Issacson, and Brey. With a conference doubleheader against Southern Door on deck for Saturday, the Vikings used six pitchers in the win. Aaron Brey got the 'W,' but it was Liam Lindenberg that led the way with two innings of one-hit ball while striking out five. 

 

The doubleheader begins at 11 a.m. in Fish Creek.

Gibraltar softball overpowered by Coleman

The Gibraltar softball jumped out to a 2-0 lead, but gave up at least three runs in each inning after that to lose to Coleman 19-4 in four innings on Friday.

 

The Vikings scored their two runs by taking advantage of three straight errors followed by a fielder's choice by Anna Jarosh and a ground-out by Addison Richmond. The Cougars would go on to abuse the Vikings' parade of pitchers, doing the most damage against Pam Prescott (1/3 innings, three hits, six runs, five earned) and Emilie Glocke (2/3 innings, two hits, four runs, four earned). The Vikings would score single runs in the third and fourth innings, only to be greeted by six more from the Cougars. Prescott, the Jarosh sisters, and Courtney Foy each collected hits in the Vikings' loss.  The Cougars had five players drive in at least two runs, led by Alyssa Hoida's four RBI.

 

The Vikings are back in action at home on Saturday when they host Southern  Door for a doubleheader at 11 a.m.

Vikings baseball shoot down Jets

Gibraltar/Washington Island did their work early on the baseball diamond in a 5-0 win over Roncalli on Monday.

 

An RBI double by Bennett Isaacson-Krueger, an RBI groundout by Cameron Munao, and a RBI single by Jaxin Lindgren staked the Vikings to an early 4-0 lead. Isaacson-Krueger added to the lead in the next inning with another double and his second hit. Brady Kita also had two hits, while Marshall Maltby and Mason Isaacson-Krueger also posted hits.

 

Kita didn't need much else as he went the distance, allowing six hits while striking out five. His defense behind him was also on point as they executed a pickoff play and turned three double plays.

Gibraltar's Sitte and Reisen sign National Letters of Intent

Ahead of the Denmark Cold Vike Invite on Saturday, Gibraltar's Braden Sitte and McKailey Reisen made their college plans official on Friday afternoon.

 

The pair signed their National Letters of Intent. Reisen will continue her track career at UW-Eau Claire, while Sitte will return to the gridiron as a defensive back at UW-LaCrosse.

 

Sitte set records in the other two phases of football, but his size and athleticism made him a great prospect to play defensive backfield for the Eagles. Coming off of two wins in the 100m and 200m earlier in the week, Sitte says it is all about using the track season to get faster so he can prepare for quick wideouts at the Division 3 level.

Reisen will get to build on her success in the hurdles and jumps events as she changes shades of blue for Blugolds next year. A state qualifier last year, Reisen is looking forward to competing at the next level.

 

Saturday's invite begins at 10:30 a.m. We will have coverage of the meeting on Saturday evening.

 

Vikings, Wolves split baseball twinbill

The Gibraltar Vikings baseball team rebounded from a 9-5 loss in game one to win game two 9-7.

 

In game one, the Vikings jumped out to a 3-0 lead through 1 1/2 innings thanks to RBI hits from Owen Dannhausen and Luke Rericha. The tide turned quickly after that as the Wolves scored nine of the next 11 runs to win the game. A two-run error, a two-run double from Carlson Leist, and run-scoring singles from Braeden Leist and Grant Vandervest proved to be the difference. Chase Romdenne, Charlie Prokash, and Braeden Leist had multi-hit games for the Wolves, while Aaron Brey went 3-4 with two RBI to lead the Vikings. The Leist brothers combined to allow five runs on nine hits and eight strikeouts. Brey took the loss as he allowed eight runs (3 ER) on 11 hits while striking out four.

 

Both teams scored in bunches in game two, with the Vikings having the final laugh for the win. The Vikings had three runs in the first and fifth innings and two in the fourth inning, while the Wolves scored a pair in the third, fifth, and sixth. Max Isaacson-Krueger led the offense for the Vikings, going 1-3 with three RBI. Cameron Munao drove in a pair on two hits, joining Max Maltby as the other Vikings with multiple hits. Carson Leist and Charlie Prokash each drove in two runs, with Leist going a perfect 4-4 from the plate and scoring two runs. Parker Lischka went 2-3 with an RBI, one of six Wolves players with an RBI. Bennett Isaacson earned the win, allowing seven runs (5 ER) across 6 1/3 innings while getting three punchouts. Charlie Prokash took the loss as he allowed five runs (4 ER) on six hits while striking out nine.

Second inning dooms Vikings baseball against Indians

The Gibraltar Vikings scored in the first inning before the Mishicot Indians took control in a 13-3 victory Thursday afternoon in non-conference baseball action.

 

The Vikings drew blood first with a first-inning RBI single by Owen Dannhausen at the bottom of the opening inning. The Indians responded in a big way in the top half of the second inning with eight runs, chasing starting pitcher Brady Kita had just 1 1/3 innings. The Indians would add two more runs in the fourth inning and three more in the fifth inning before the Vikings would score again. RBI knocks by Aaron Brey and Jaxin Lindgren ate into the Indians' advantage a little bit, but it was not enough to prevent the game from ending early due to the rout.

 

The Vikings will head down the peninsula on Friday to play a doubleheader against the Algoma Wolves. After opening the season at Capital Credit Union Park in a 10-3 loss to Green Bay Preble, they were nipped in their last game 2-1 by St. Mary Catholic on Tuesday. First pitch is slated for 4 p.m.

Sitte, Reisen lead the way for Vikings at Sevastopol Quad

Braden Sitte and McKailey Reisen piled up the points for the Gibraltar track teams at Tuesday's Sevastopol quad meet.

 

For the boys, Sitte won the 100m with a personal record, the 200m with a season-best, took third in the long jump, and helped lead his relay team to a second place finish. WIll Lecy (100m, 200m) also earned top three finishes. 

 

On the girls' side, Reisen won the high jump and 100m hurdles. Also cracking the top three for the Vikings were Bella Jones (100m, long jump), Hayden Knudson (200m), Rose Stackhouse (3200m), and Josie Martin (discus).

The Gibraltar/Washington Island Vikings jumped on the Sevastopol Pioneers for 13 runs in the first two innings. They never looked back, defeating the Pioneers 19-2 in the first game of a scheduled doubleheader.  Braden Kita scored two-for-two, scored four runs, and knocked in four to lead the Viking attack.  Giblartar took advantage of 15 walks by four Pioneer pitchers.   Bennett Isaacson and Aaron Brey also had two hits.

Slow start dooms Vikings against Bobcats on 105.1 The GOAT

The Gibraltar Vikings found themselves in a hole they could not climb out of on Tuesday, falling to Florence on the road 60-48.

The Vikings went the first seven-plus minutes without scoring a point, while William Kelley, Truth Setner, and Dustin Williams helped the Bobcats jump out to a 17-0 lead. Braden Sitte would catch fire later in the half, but not before the Bobcats could extend their lead by as much as 23 points before a half-court buzzer-beating three-pointer sent the Vikings into the locker room down 35-19.

Head coach Travis Ward said Sitte's buzzer-beater inspired the Vikings at the beginning of the second half, going on an 11-3 run thanks to clutch shooting from Brady Kita and Marshall Maltby on the line.

The Bobcats never let the Vikings get the deficit to under eight points. They hit 18 free throws in the second half to keep them at arm's distance the rest of the way. Kelley and Trent McLain poured in 17 points apiece, and Williams added 16 points in the win for the Bobcats. Sitte fouled out with 24 points in his final game as a Viking, with fellow senior Maltby chipping in eight points and Marco Jauregui coming in at the end to score five points.

The Vikings end the season 6-19 overall with a chance to return most of their team outside of their top scorer and rebounder.

Gibraltar face familiar opponent in WIAA opener on 105.1 The GOAT Tuesday

The road to Madison will take a familiar detour for the Gibraltar boys' basketball team as they open the WIAA Tournament on the road at Florence on Tuesday night.

 

The Vikings snapped a four-game losing streak on Saturday, beating Hilbert 45-39. The Vikings had to capture the win in comeback fashion as they found themselves down at the break 20-15 thanks to seven first-half points by Brody Hein. Braden Sitte and Liam Lindenberg led the comeback as they scored 25 of the Vikings' 30 second-half points to send the team into the tournament victorious. Sitte scored 22 points in what could be his final home game, while Lindenberg poured in 15 points with three three-pointers.

 

The Bobcats snapped a three-game losing streak of their own with a 72-26 win over Bowler in their regular season finale. William Kelley (24.7 ppg) leads a Bobcats attack that cracked 75 points four times, including a 95-47 victory over Bark River-Harris (MI).

 

Tuesday marks the third time in the last six years the Bobcats and the Vikings have met in the tournament, with all previous meetings taking place in Florence. The Vikings won 59-39 last season behind 21 points from Carl Burgess and 14 from Braden Sitte, and 70-41 in 2019. However, the Bobcats got the last laugh on the gridiron this school year, beating the Vikings 52-0.

 

Tim Kowols will have the call from Florence on 105.1 The GOAT and NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com beginning at 6:45 p.m. with the pregame show followed by the tip-off at 7 p.m. The winner will take on the winner of Niagara/Lena on Friday.

Vikings boys win on Senior Day vs. Wolves

The Gibraltar Vikings will enter tournament week on a high note after beating Hilbert 45-39.

 

The Vikings had to capture the win in comeback fashion as they found themselves down at the break 20-15 thanks to seven first-half points by Brody Hein. Braden Sitte and Liam Lindenberg led the comeback as they scored 25 of the Vikings' 30 second-half points to send the team into the tournament victorious. Sitte scored 22 points in what could be his final home game, while Lindenberg poured in 15 points with three three-pointers. Hein ended his day with 12 points, while two teammates complemented him with eight points.

 

The Vikings are back in action on Tuesday in Florence, a game that will be broadcast on 105.1 The GOAT and NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com.

Gibraltar boys close regular season Saturday with Hilbert

The Gibraltar Vikings boys' basketball team will play the final regular season game for the entire area on Saturday when they welcome Hilbert to Fish Creek.

 

The Vikings have lost four straight games since they swept a weekend set against Sevastopol and St. Lawrence Seminary earlier this month. That includes a 54-24 loss to Menominee (MI) Thursday night. Braden Sitte was the lone Vikings player to reach double figures with 10 points. Aaron Brey added five points and Will Lecy contributed four more in the loss. Saturday's game will include festivities for the team's two seniors, Braden Sitte and Marshall Maltby. Senior Day had to be rescheduled after Maltby became ill and missed two games against Sturgeon Bay and Algoma. Head coach Travis Ward salutes Sitte and Maltby's effort during a memorable time during the program's history.

The Wolves come into the matchup fresh off of snapping a five-game losing streak with a nail-biting 38-36 win over Sheboygan Christian. Kaelin VandenWyngaard leads the team in scoring 14.3 points per game and is second in rebounding with 5.5 boards per game. This will be the first of two straight games against Packerland Conference opponents for the Wolves as they will open their WIAA Tournament run against NEW Lutheran.

 

Tip-off is set for 2:30 p.m.

 

The Vikings will then focus on the tournament when they travel to Florence to take on the Bobcats for the second straight year. That game will be covered from Florence on 105.1 The GOAT and NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com beginning at 6:45 p.m. with the pregame show followed by the tip at 7 p.m.

Third quarter sinks Vikings vs. Maroons in road loss

The Gibraltar Vikings were outscored 17-2 in a decisive third quarter as they went north of the border in a 54-24 loss to Menominee (MI) Thursday night.

 

Head coach Travis Ward complimented the Maroons' defense and physical play that kept his team off kilter all night long, adding that he thinks they could make a run in the Michigan State Basketball Tournament. Braden Sitte was the lone Vikings player to reach double figures with 10 points. Aaron Brey added five points and Will Lecy contributed four more in the loss. The Maroons were led by Tanner Theuerkauf with 19 points and Conner Coduti with 12. 

Reisen's putback puts Vikings girls in second round on 105.1 The GOAT

A McKailey Reisen putback with 6.5 seconds left in the game drowned out four years of agony in the WIAA Tournament as Gibraltar beat the higher-seeded Niagara Badgers 45-43.

 

Neither team could get much going offensively in the first half as both teams went nearly five minutes without hitting a shot from the field. Slowly but surely, the Vikings and Badgers players found their stride, with Niagara's Sydney Swanson and Gibraltar's Andie Schar and Anna Jarosh able to hit baskets. Mikala Gorham gave her team a huge boost heading into the break when she converted on a three-point play at the line to give the Vikings a 19-17 advantage at the break.

The Vikings would have to weather the Badgers' attack early in the second half as Mallory and Bristol Sanicki combined to hit five of their six three-pointers in the opening minutes as they built an eight-point lead. The free throw line and offensive rebounding helped the Vikings claw back into the game and even take small leads into the latter stages of the game.

Bristol Sanicki would add drama to the game's final moments when she hit a corner three-pointer to tie the game at 43 apiece. That's when a missed shot and an offensive rebound and put back from Reisen became the game-winner as the Badgers' final attempt came up empty, giving the Vikings their first playoff win in four years.

The Vikings were led in scoring by Andie Schar's 15 points, which were complemented by 12 points from McKailey Reisen and 10 points from Mikala Gorham. The Sanicki sisters combined for 23 points, including eighteen from behind the arc, in the loss for the Badgers.

 

On Friday night in Institute, the tenth-seeded Vikings will now face a familiar opponent in the Sevastopol Pioneers. The Pioneers dominated St. Thomas Aquinas 65-7 on Tuesday, not allowing the Cavaliers to score in the second half. The Vikings lost both matchups to the Pioneers during the regular season. The game will air on 105.1 The GOAT, 96.7 WBDK, and NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com beginning at 6:45 p.m. with the pregame show followed by the opening tip at 7 p.m.

Vikings girls set for rematch against Badgers on 105.1 The GOAT

The Gibraltar Vikings will have an opportunity to avenge last year's exit in the WIAAs when they travel to Niagara for the second consecutive season.

 

The tenth-seeded Vikings won their tenth game of the season on Saturday with a 67-27 victory over Stockbridge. It marked their second win in three tries and it is more wins than the program has had over the last three seasons combined. Andie Schar and Mikala Gorham have been a potent one-two punch for the Vikings, leading the team in scoring and rebounding. Head coach Evan DeBroux is confident that his team is ready to shine come tournament time.

 

The Badgers come into the game dramatically different than the team that beat the Vikings 48-32 in Niagara in last year's WIAA Tournament opener. Only five team members that made the regional final are back, accounting for only five of the 48 points against the Vikings. All five of those points belonged to Mallory Sanicki, who leads the Badgers this year in scoring with 12.8 ppg and rebounding at 9.2 rpg. The Badgers went from 21-6 last year to 11-13 this year and have lost four straight games. 

 

Tim Kowols will make the trip for 105.1 The GOAT and NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com, with the pregame show airing at 6:45 p.m. followed by the opening tip at 7 p.m.

Gibraltar begins final week of regular season with Algoma trip on 105.1 The GOAT

The Gibraltar Vikings boys' basketball team plays their final Packerland Conference game of the season on Monday with a trip south to face the Algoma Wolves.

 

The Vikings had no answers defensively last Friday when four different Sturgeon Bay Clippers broke double figures, and two others were within a basket as they rolled past them 87-68 in Fish Creek. Braden Sitte scored 20 points in each half to lead all scorers with 40 points in the contest. The Clippers would take a nearly 30-point lead late, but the Vikings got the deficit to below 20 points thanks to Jeffrey Mize scoring seven of his nine points late in the period and Liam Lindenberg hitting two more three-pointers to end his night with 10 points. They end the season with non-conference games at Menominee (MI) on Thursday and against Hilbert at home on Saturday. Head coach Travis Ward would like to see his team start playing their best basketball ahead of their opening-round matchup against Florence next week.

 

 

The Wolves will still have a game against Kewaunee later in the week on 104.1 WRLU as they try to get above .500 in Packerland play. They enter Monday's game on a three-game slide, losing to Peshtigo, Southern Door, and Kewaunee in consecutive contests. In their game against Sturgeon Bay, Algoma was led by Parker Lischka, who scored 21 points in a 54-43 loss. The Wolves will open their WIAA Tournament journey at Weyauwega-Fremont as the #10 seed.

In their previous matchup, the Wolves earned a hard-fought 46-39 win over the Vikings on January 16th. The Wolves' Chase Romdenne and the Vikings' Braden Sitte matched each other with 19 points.

 

Tim Kowols will have the call on 105.1 The GOAT and NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com beginning at 7:15 p.m., followed by the opening tip at 7:30 p.m.

Gibraltar's Sitte prepared for life after basketball

Time has flown by for Gibraltar junior varsity basketball coach Kent Sitte.

 

For the last 30 years, Sitte has been a near-constant site on the Vikings' sidelines, coaching hundreds of student-athletes at both the varsity and the junior varsity levels. In between stints coaching the varsity team, he would take a back seat to coach junior varsity when there was a staff member who wanted to take the reins of the programs, citing his own time constraints and the importance of having a voice for the program inside the walls of Gibraltar. He also took time off from coaching to start a family with his wife, Heidi, raising Abbi and Braden to be All-Packerland Conference performers during their respective basketball careers. Sitte cited some wins over bigger programs as being some of his favorite highlights but added that experiencing the program's recent run of success with his son on the roster has been remarkable.

Head Coach Travis Ward says Sitte has always been a great asset to the program, especially for the young coaches like himself who have taken over things over the years.

Sitte jokes that he may have to find a few new hobbies to fill the time when he is done coaching basketball, though he is looking forward to visiting his kids at their respective colleges, among other trips. Sitte will be honored during a special ceremony at Friday's Sturgeon Bay game that will be covered on 105.1 The GOAT.
