Sitte, Stillman named Gibraltar student-athletes of the year

Abbi Sitte and Brandon Stillman were named Gibraltar's student-athletes of the year during the school's virtual senior awards night Wednesday.


Sitte was hoping to qualify for the state track meet again this spring after competing in the 100M, 200M, and 4 x 200M relay last year. Sitte was also an all-Packerland Conference performer in volleyball and basketball during her senior year. Gibraltar's volleyball team won two straight regional championships and the basketball team was a game away from qualifying for sectionals in 2020 with Sitte on the team. Sitte will attend UW-Milwaukee in the fall.


Stillman was aiming to help the baseball team breakthrough to the state baseball tournament after helping it win regionals two years in a row. He was also an All-MONLPC Eight-Man Honorable Mention running back for the football team that made two straight playoff appearances and played on the sectional-qualifying basketball team in 2019. Stillman will head to Arizona State this fall.'s Champion of Champions Series: 1995 Gibraltar Cross Country

Familiar faces helped the Gibraltar Vikings' girls cross country team repeat as state champions in 1995.


Taking place once again at the state's cross country course in Wisconsin Rapids, Felice Birmingham shaved off over 15 seconds to be the team's top finisher with a time of 15:44 on the 4K course. That was good for fourth overall and second place out of the runners connected to teams. Gibraltar had four of its five runners finish in the top 10 for scoring spots for teams. Erika Jacobson (15:58) broke 16 minutes while Alissa Jacobson followed closely behind with a time of 16:06. Newcomer Julie Jorns came in fourth place for the Vikings on the score sheet, running a 16:13. Sarah Blackwood ran a 17:13 to place all scoring Vikings runners in the top 50 overall.

A runner from Sevastopol may have won the battle, but it was the Gibraltar girls' cross country team that won the war in 1994 as it captured its first of two straight championships.


Four Vikings runners finished in the top 15, including Erika Johnson's time of 15:29 on the 4K course. That was good enough to be in first place for the runners connected to teams. Felice Birmingham (16:02), Kristy Jacobson (16:08), and Alissa Jacobson (16:33) broke the 17-minute barrier while Melissa Weborg rounded out the top five. Their efforts helped the Vikings beat second-place  Brookwood 53-89.


It was a good day for the peninsula with seven runners placing in the top 50. Sevastopol's Maria Otto captured the individual title that day, running a 14:58.
