Kewaunee Wins with Fashion at Luxemburg-Casco

Kewaunee opened their season with a win tonight as they played their cross-county rival, Luxemburg-Casco. The Storm emerged victorious 67-51. Junior guard Thomas Stangel led Kewaunee. Stangel had 21 points and was able to lead this team's offense. Other key offensive players were Cal Ihlenfeldt who had 18 points and Sawyer Pribek who had 12. 

 

The Storm did not show that they lost most of their key players from last season. The team will be impacted by many members of last season's undefeated JV team. Junior Chris Cullen went 2 for 2 from three in the contest and gave head coach Luke Neitzel high-quality minutes. Another young addition to the team is sophomore forward Jackson Wisnicky. Wisnicky provided high-quality defense under the team's full-court pressure and had 3 points of his own. 

 

Luxemburg-Casco was led by junior forward Lance Cherovsky. Cherovsky led the team in points with 12. Luxemburg struggled to get through Kewaunee’s full-court pressure and struggled with turnovers. These turnovers led to many fast break layups for the Storm. Caleb Blohowiak also had 4 points. 

    

Kewaunee visits Jeremy Lorenz and the Brillion Lions on Tuesday, November 29.

Luxemburg-Casco to Host Kewaunee in Boys Basketball Season Opener

After a loss to the Brillion Lions in the Sectional Semi-Final last season, the Storm hope to have similar success this season. The team lost leading scorers Ben Heim and Cameron Cullen who were key players to this team. Head coach Luke Neitzel will once again hope to lead this team to another Packerland Conference Championship.

 

Returning players for the Storm include Cal Ihlenfeldt, Sawyer Pribek, Payton Kohnle, and Thomas Stangel. Ihlenfeldt will be the primary big man with the most height on this team. Pribek is more of a power-forward type of player. Last year teams liked forcing Pribek to bring the ball up the court for the Storm to keep it out of Anthony Jerabek’s hands. Payton Kohnle is a guard for this team. He will be a great 3-point shooter for this team. And Thomas Stangel, his playstyle last year was very drive-heavy. It would not be surprising if Stangel were this team's number 1 scorer.

     

Kewaunee will be at Luxemburg-Casco tonight at 7:30pm.

Irish pound Storm

The Kewaunee Storm could slow down the Freedom Irish offense on Friday night, losing to their NEC opponent 70-11 at home Friday night.

 

The Irish outscored the Storm 42-8 in the first half and only allowed three points after the break in the rout. Twelve different Irish players scored including two in double figures. Summer Walechka led the way with three points while two others scored two points. Seven of their 11 points came from the free-throw line. 

Freedom Travels to Kewaunee for Early Season Contest

After losing to Wrightstown on Tuesday, the Kewaunee Storm will face the Freedom Irish. Freedom ended Wrightstown’s season last year in a neutral site game. The Irish beat the Tigers 56-31. Freedom went on to lose to Waupun at State, 63-42. Kewaunee faces Freedom Friday, November 18, at approximately 7:30 pm.

 

The Storm will not be at full strength in this early season contest with injuries to key players. One of which is the sophomore guard, Lexie Hanrahan. She is the only returning player that had substantial minutes on the team last year. She is expected to return from her ankle injury within the next two weeks. Another key player to this young Kewaunee team is Jade Kroll. The freshman forward is very versatile. She had a wrist injury and is out for at least another three weeks. 

 

A player for the Storm that needs to perform is Hannah Morton. The junior guard has struggled to get open and score. When Morton is hitting from three, everyone in the gym knows. She and other key players like Gabby Stangel and Brianna Demmin must find ways to score against a team like Freedom. 

 

Freedom did go to state last season but lost most key players. The Storm will need an incredible effort to put a win in the win column this Friday Night.

 

Storm look to continue success on hardwood

The Kewaunee Storm are coming off of another successful season last year, winning a share of the Packerland Conference title, sharing it with the Peshtigo Bulldogs. 

 

The Storm went 13-3 in conference play, good enough for that share of the title. Overall, Kewaunee was 18-9, and their season ended in the Sectional Semifinals, as they lost to the Brillion Lions, who made an appearance in the State Tournament. Kewaunee lost their leading scorers, as Ben Heim and Cameron Cullen were seniors last season.
 

However, Kewaunee will still have a capable offense as key contributors to the team last season will remain on the team this season. Sawyer Pribek and Cal Ihlenfeldt will be big time playmakers and scorers for Kewaunee this season, and Payton Kohnle will most likely find himself running the offense. 

 

The Storm will not get much time to prepare for the basketball season, as the deep run into the season that they made ultimately fell short in a loss to the Aquinas Blugolds. 

 

The first game for the team will be against the Luxemburg-Casco Spartans on the road on November 22nd, and the first Packerland matchup will be December 1st against the Algoma Wolves. 

Wrightstown Girls Basketball too Strong for Kewaunee in Season OpenerĀ 

 To kick off the Girls Basketball season the Wrightstown Tigers traveled to face the Kewaunee Storm. The Tigers emerged victorious with a score of 49-26. With the Storm losing all starters and having injuries to key players, head coach Lynn Geier was forced to have a very young group on the court. The Tigers were led by senior guard Danielle Bruecker who led the Tigers in scoring with 14. Bruecker was one of two returning starters from the team last year. Jordan Vickman, the other returning starter for the Tigers, made her presence known with key defensive plays. She also had four points. Wrightstown was able to dribble through Kewaunee’s attempt at full court pressure, resulting in a lot of fastbreak points. 

 

The Storm were not at full strength in this early season contest with injuries to key players. One of which being Lexie Hanrahan. The sophomore guard suffered an ankle injury in practice this week. She is the only returning player that had substantial minutes on the team last year. She is expected to return in the next 2 weeks. Another key player to this young Kewaunee team is Jade Kroll. The freshman forward is very versatile. She had a wrist injury and is out for at least another three weeks. 

 

The Tigers were able to get 18 of their 49 from the three point shot. They were also able to get inside looks really showing that they can score in multiple ways. 

 

Kewaunee’s young team was led by freshman guard Gabby Stangel. She had 8 points for the Storm. The Storm often struggled to get the ball inside with possessions often resulting in turnovers. Brianna Demmin had 8 points and was limited by the height of the Wrightstown team.

 

Kewaunee faces Freedom on November 18th at Kewaunee High School.

 

Kewaunee welcomes Wrightstown in Girls Basketball opener

The Kewaunee Storm girls basketball team will get their season underway Tuesday night, as they play host to the Tigers of Wrightstown.

 

Kewaunee was the runner ups in the Packerland last season, with an overall record of 17-9 and a conference record of 13-3. The Storm will have to find the production to replace their top six leading scorers of the past season; with Taylor Schleis, Toni Bortilini, Mykenzi Uhlers, Sabrina Ferron, and Kiley Gaedtke all receiving some sort of All-Packerland Conference recognition last year. They will hope that production comes quickly against Wrightstown. 

 

Wrightstown will be a good test for the Storm, as they finished last season at 20-6 overall and lost in the regional finals to the Freedom Irish. However, the Tigers leading scorers from last season all have graduated, as their highest returning scorer averaged 7.6 points per game last season. Two teams that have seen some big turnover will face off in their first game of the season. 

 

The tip is set for 7:30 P.M. 

 

Blugolds silence Storm on U-1021

The Aquinas Blugolds simply could not be stopped in the second half as they turned a close game at halftime against the Kewaunee Storm into a 44-19 rout in Wisconsin Rapids on Friday.

 

The Storm struck first with a clock-eating drive that took more than five minutes off  the clock and put six on the scoreboard after Mitchell Thompson scored on a quarterback sneak. 

 

The Blugolds would make their mark in the second quarter with two quick touchdowns on a nine-yard rush by Calvin Hargrove and a long passing play from Jackson Flottmeyer to Collin Conzemius to make it 14-6. The Blugolds left enough time on the clock for Thompson to find Maddix Mueller on a quick pattern to the front pylon to make it 14-12 at the break.

 

It was all Blugolds after half time as they scored on every drive in the third quarter and outscored the Storm 30-7 in the last two frames. Hargrove scored two of the four rushing touchdowns in the half. The Storm would make it a two-score game in the fourth quarter after Owen Carlson found the  endzone in his return to the lineup.

 

 

The Bluegolds would answer that score and then some after forcing a safety and following it up with their fourth touchdown of the half to secure their second straight title game appearance.

 

The Storm finished the season 11-2.

 

 

 

Storm look to repeat last seasons Girls Basketball success

The Kewaunee Storm Girls Basketball team had a strong showing last season, finishing as Packerland Conference runner-ups behind Oconto. The Storm will see almost a completely new team hit the court this season however, losing seven graduating seniors. 

 

The Storm will have to find the production to replace their top six leading scorers of the past season; with Taylor Schleis, Toni Bortilini, Mykenzi Uhlers, Sabrina Ferron, and Kiley Gaedtke all receiving some sort of All-Packerland Conference recognition last year. Kewaunee finished last season with a record of 17-9 overall, and 13-3 in conference play. The Storm were eliminated in the second round of last year's WIAA Girls Basketball Tournament to Oostburg. 

 

Kewaunee will look to get big strides of improvement from underclassmen, with Lexi Hanrahan being the highest scoring underclassmen last season, as she averaged 3.4 Points Per Game. 

 

The Storm will return to action this season as they host the Wrightstown Tigers on Tuesday November 15th, and begin Packerland play against their neighbors the Algoma Wolves on November 29th. 

Kewaunee looks to return to state on U-1021

For the first time this playoff run, the Kewaunee Storm will face an unfamiliar 2022 opponent when they line up across from Aquinas in Wisconsin Rapids Friday night.

 

The Storm beat Sturgeon Bay (71-6), Kiel (27-13), and Southern Door (15-12) in consecutive games after going a combined 2-1 against them during the regular season. The semi-final clincher in Brussels was very much in doubt late in their game against the Eagles, but then DJ Echos took a handoff on a weird exchange 72 yards untouched to seal the game for the Storm. Mitchell Thompson has thrown for 1498 yards and 17 touchdowns this year to go along with his 11 rushing touchdowns. The team's leading rusher, Owen Carlson, will still be inactive due to a lower-body injury suffered in the Kiel game.

 

The Blugolds defeated Durand-Arkansaw (51-6), Northwestern (38-13), and former Division 6 state champion Colby (28-14) en route to their second straight semifinal. They beat Mayville 28-26 to win the Division 5 championship last season. Ranked #1 in the state despite their #3 seed in the tournament field, the Blugolds are led by Jackson Flottmeyer. The All-State quarterback has thrown for over 2200 yards and 26 touchdowns while using his feet for seven more.

 

The two teams do have a history. Kewaunee head coach Randy Charles rushed for 53 yards, made eight tackles, and intercepted one pass in a 27-0 Blugolds victory in the 2007 Division 5 State Title game.

 

Tim Kowols and Henry Annen will have the call from Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln High School on U-1021 and NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com beginning at 6:45 p.m. with the pregame show followed by the kickoff at 7 p.m.

Kewaunee's Charles draws parallels to football's past success

Kewaunee head football coach Randy Charles knows a little something about what winning teams look like.

 

Charles played on the Storm's teams that made it to the state final in 2006 and 2007. Both teams took losses at Camp Randall Stadium, but finished those seasons a combined 26-2. He says the secret to those teams were not necessarily the stars, but the role players that stepped up to play every game. 

The Kewaunee Storm will battle the Aquinas Bluegolds on Friday night at 7 p.m. in Wisconsin Rapids. Tickets are available online now and at the door, but if you cannot make it to Wisconsin Rapids, Tim Kowols and Henry Annen will have the call on U-1021 and NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com beginning at 6:45 p.m. with the pregame show followed by kickoff.

Storm learn state semi-final site

The Kewaunee Storm football team now knows where they are heading for Friday's state semifinal.

 

The Storm will meet defending Division 5 champion La Crosse Aquinas at Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln High School at 7 p.m.

 

The Storm nipped Southern Door 15-12 and Aquinas topped Colby 28-14 on Friday night to set up the matchup.

 

If you cannot make it to Wisconsin Rapids, U-1021 will carry the game live beginning at 6:45 p.m. followed by kickoff at 7 p.m. 

Storm upset Eagles on rainy night on U102.1

The Kewaunee Storm pulled off the upset of all upsets Friday night in Southern Door, as the Storm beat the Eagles 15-12 to win a regional final. 

 

Kewaunee opened the game with a flea flicker, as Jesse Morales-Hernandez flipped it to Mitchell Thompson who found Peyton Kohnle for a 60 yard gain. Thompson would then drive the pile for a one yard touchdown. 

 

Drew Daoust and the Southern Door Eagles would answer back quickly as Daoust lead the offense down the field with big runs from Zack Lynch. Daoust would roll to his right and run into the endzone, but fail the two point conversion to make it a 7-6 Kewaunee lead. 

 

Mitchell Thompson would make a mistake and fire a pick to safety Jack Peterson who would return the interception down to the five yard line. Zack Lynch would then punch it in from 5 yards out the very next play, but another failed 2 point conversion would make it 12-7. 

 

That score would hold until some drama before the half, as the Storm would be denied the ability to run a play as the clock was not started right away, which would end the half with the score remaining at 12-7 even with Thompson getting into the endzone if the play would have counted. 

 

The score would not change until six minutes left in the fourth quarter, as DJ Echos would take a handoff on a weird exchange 72 yards untouched to seal the game for the Storm. 

 

Kewaunee will move on to face the reigning Division 5 state champions Aquinas, as the Southern Door Eagles will prepare for their winter sports seasons. 

Storm travel to Eagles with regional title in sights

The Kewaunee Storm and Southern Door Eagles will get ready to tango for a second time this season, as this time it will be for a regional title and to be one game away from the state tournament in Madison. 

 

The Storm has gone through two familiar opponents to get to this point, as they defeated conference opponent Sturgeon Bay 71-6 in the first round and then the Kiel Raiders 27-13, who they had defeated in week one. Now another familiar foe, the team that gave Kewaunee their only loss on the season, Southern Door. The Eagles snuck a win against the Storm 19-14 back on October 7th in Brussels. Kewaunee has been a better defensive team since that game, so the Storm will go in looking to get their revenge and punch their ticket to Sectionals for the first time since 2013, where they lost to state runner-up Lancaster. 

 

Southern Door has seen some unfamiliar opponents this season: they took down the Brillion Lions 49-0 and the Chilton Tigers 34-7 on their way to the matchup against the Storm. The Eagles have not been to the sectional semifinal round since their 1989 state championship season, so they will be looking to remake history this Friday. Zack Lynch has burst onto the scene this season, as he has run for 1,357 yards and 21 touchdowns on the year. Lynch was able to run for 122 yards against the Storm and will look to run over the Storm once again in this matchup. 

 

Gary Barta and Henry Annen will have coverage from Southern Door Friday night on U102.1 and NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com. Pregame will begin at 6:45, with kickoff set for 7:00. 

Miller, Bousley run well in state debut

Southern Door's Emma Bousley and Kewaunee's Hannah Miller made strong efforts in the first-ever race at the WIAA State Meet in Wisconsin Rapids.

 

Miller was the top local finisher with a time of 21:06 on the 5K course at Ridges Golf Course, which was good for 49th place overall. Bousley was not far behind her Packerland rival, covering the route in 21:19 for a 54th-place finish. 

Miller readies for state run

Kewaunee freshman Hannah Miller will toe the line at her biggest stage yet on Saturday when she competes in the WIAA State Cross Country meet in Wisconsin Rapids.

 

Miller earned her spot as one of the top five runners not competing as a qualified team member. Miller finished in fifth place at the Manitowoc Lutheran sectional with a time of 20:42, her fifth time breaking 21 minutes this season.

 

Miller and fellow Packerland competitor Emma Bousley of Southern Door will both line up in Corral 10 at the Division 3 Girls State Meet Race, which begins at noon on Saturday. 

Storms advances past Raiders on U-1021

The Kewaunee football team stormed out to a 24-0 lead and did not look back in its 27-13 triumph over Kiel Friday night.

 

After Maddix Mueller got the Storm on the scoreboard with a mid-range field goal on their opening drive, the two teams traded scoreless possession until the opening minutes of the second quarter when Tyler VanGoethem scored the first touchdown to make it 10-0. After forcing the Raiders to punt, the Storm took advantage of a short field to make it 17-0 on a short rush by Jesse Morales-Hernandez.

 

 

The Storm evened things up in the interception department when Brayden Obry caught a tipped pass from Raiders quarterback Connor Faust. A few plays later, quarterback Mitchell Thompson was able to tack on another touchdown with a back-shoulder throw to Caleb Schaller to make it 24-0 at halftime.

 

The Raiders' defense stiffened up after the break and their offense was able to sustain drives. They still would not score points until their first drive of the fourth quarter when Faust connected with Charles Freis with their first of two long touchdown passes. A Mueller field goal midway through the fourth quarter was all the Storm was able to register in the second half.

 

The Storm improved to 10-1 on the season, earning their second win against Kiel on the season. They will now travel to get their first win in two tries in Brussels when they travel to face Southern Door next Friday night. The Eagles exploded for points in the second quarter en route to a 34-7 victory over Chilton. The Storm lost their first meeting against the Eagles in Brussels earlier this season 19-4. The rematch will be broadcast on U-1021 and NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com.

 

 

Storm gets a visit from Kiel on U102.1

The Kewaunee Storm will play host to their week one opponent again as the Kiel Raiders come to town in a regional semifinal matchup in the WIAA playoffs. 

 

The Storm is coming off a beat down of the Sturgeon Bay Clippers last Friday in the first round, as they beat their conference foe 71-6. Most of the damage that Kewaunee made came on the ground, as the Storm ran for 429 yards and six touchdowns, with five different runners finding the endzone. Owen Carlson joined in on the fun as well, as he returned a punt into the endzone for a touchdown after having one called back earlier in the game. Kewaunee will look to stay on the right side of production against Kiel, as they have had a stellar season. 

 

Kiel was a team that gave the Storm some troubles, however, as the Raiders battled with the Storm in week one, falling 28-21 in that game. Kiel is coming off of an upset in round one, as they took down Wittenberg Birnamwood 16-6 in a 3 versus 6 seed matchup. The Raiders got a good game from their Quarterback Connor Faust in that one, as he threw for a touchdown, but also ran the ball 24 times and was able to get in on the ground as well. Their defense works well for them, however, as they held a high-powered Chargers offense to those six points. 

 

Gary Barta and Tim Kowols will have the call from Don Rabas Field on U102.1 and NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com. The pregame show will begin at 6:45 with kickoff from Kewaunee set for 7:00.

Kewaunee cross country travels to Sectionals in Manitowoc

Kewaunee has had a strong performance from their cross country team all season, and will look to have that repeated as they head to Manitowoc Lutheran to run on Saturday in the WIAA sectionals. 

 

Christopher Cullen has been leading the pack when it comes to the Storm’s boys team this season. Setting a personal record this season of 17:34 has been the way of Cullen this season. Not only is Cullen having a great season, four other of his teammates have clocked in personal record times of under 20 minutes this season. Those runners are, James Joski, Alejandro Martin, Christian Hall, and Lucas Martin. 

 

The girls team finished fourth this season, behind the strong year of Hannah Miller. Miller clocked in her Personal Record on September 29th at the Panther Invite. She recorded a time of 20:21, which was good for fourth place. 

 

Both teams have had their fair share of success, and hopefully for the Storm, the Sectionals will be no different.

Storm finish second, highest local finisher in Packerland Boys Cross Country season

Cross Country in the Packerland has wrapped up, as sectionals begin this weekend. The results are in, and the Peshtigo Bulldogs have taken the crown in the Boys Cross Country standings. 

 

The local teams in the area that scored points this season fared well also, as Kewaunee and Southern Door were the two schools that had enough runners to score as a team this season. 

 

Kewaunee was led by Christopher Cullen this season, as he had multiple PRs this season, leading the Storm to a 2nd place finish in the Packerland. 

 

Southern Door was led by Ben Grota, who made improvements from last season to lead the Eagles to a fourth place finish. 

 

Both teams will be at Manitowoc Lutheran for their sectional. 

 

The Packerland conference final standings for the boys is posted below.

Storm volleyball hits road to Oostburg

The Kewaunee Storm volleyball team travel to Oostburg to see if they can stretch their season out another few days.

 

The Storm finished the season with a 1-22 record and did not qualify for the Packerland Conference Tournament. They beat Menasha for their lone victory of the season at the Oconto Falls Tournament.

 

The Flying Dutchmen finished their 16-7 season with a 2-1 mark at the Big East Conference Tournament. After losing to Howards Grove in straight sets, they repaid the favor to Reedsville and St. Mary Catholic. 

 

Match time is set for 7 p.m.

 

Kewaunee soccer looks to extend season

The Kewaunee soccer team hopes their season has not met its end on Tuesday when it travels to face St. Lawrence Seminary.

 

The Storm picked up its only win of the season on October 3rd when they beat Washington Island 3-0. They have otherwise gone 0-13, averaging less than a goal a game and have been shut out seven times. 

 

St. Lawrence Seminary is paying for the sins of a five-match losing streak in the middle of the season. They split their two matches the final week of the season, beating Lourdes/Valley Christian 4-2 and losing to Central Wisconsin Christian 1-0.

 

Match time is set for 4 p.m. with the winner being rewarded with a trip to Sturgeon Bay to battle the Clippers.
