Kewaunee boys basketball drops opener

Kewaunee High School's boys basketball team fell at Two Rivers Tuesday night, 76-72. The Storm led at halftime by six but couldn't hold the lead in the face of a three-headed offensive attack from Two Rivers. Cam Daffner led the Purple Raiders with 25 points including four 3-pointers and seven free throws. Alex Klein had 15 points and nine rebounds. Spencer Salta chipped in 11 with four assists. 


Kewaunee is off for nine days before they return to the court on Thursday, December 5th against Sturgeon Bay in the Storm's home opener. That will be the first game of the season for the Clippers.

Kewaunee wins second straight

The Kewaunee girls' basketball team has two wins already on their season before some squads in the area got even a single game on their ledger.


The Storm cruised past Menasha 58-44 in its second game of the season, improving their mark to 2-0.

Kewaunee girls basketball hosts home game

The Kewaunee Storm once again find themselves as the only Packerland Conference team playing for keeps on Monday.


The Storm will play Menasha at home Monday night after defeating Denmark in their season opener 60-46. McKenzie Tlachac just missed out on a double-double against the Vikings, scoring 28 points and grabbing nine rebounds in the win. The Blue Jays are coming off a 47-41 loss last week to Winneconne. Alexa Yost leads the Blue Jays in points (12), rebounds (7), and assists (2) on the young season.

Kewaunee girls basketball opens season with win

Practices began last Monday for winter sports with a scrimmage this past Saturday and the first regular season game Tuesday night for Kewaunee High School's girls basketball team. That condensed schedule was not an issue for the Storm. They were the only area team in action, picking up a victory against Denmark on the road. The Storm won, 60-46.

Denmark was led by Abby Maricque who scored 21 points on 9-15 shooting. Maricque's performance helped the Denmark team overall to shoot 47 percent from the field. That made this year's game a lot closer than the opener to the 2018-19 season which saw Kewaunee dispatch the Vikings easily, 73-39. 

Kewaunee's next game is Monday night at home against Menasha.


Kewaunee seniors prepare for season opener against Denmark

The Kewaunee girls basketball team brings back a lot of familiar faces as they open their 2019-2020 season on the road this evening in Denmark.


The Storm roster boasts six seniors from last year's squad that went 23-2 and won the Packerland Conference last year. Sara Dax, an All-Packerland Conference player last year, is the only missing player from that team that won 13 games in a row for head coach Lynn Geier before falling to Kiel in the sectional semi-final. In her place, Mackenzie Tlachac returns as the team's leading scorer, rebounder, and assist maker. 


The Storm plays the Vikings beginning at 7 p.m. for the only local action this evening.

Kewaunee trio named All-State

Two players from the Kewaunee Storm earned some extra recognition Monday as the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association named its All-State teams.


Offensive lineman and University of Wisconsin recruit  Tanor Bortolini earned first-team honors while teammates Owen Kudick (offensive back) and Max Hanrahan (punter) received honorable mention honors. Bortolini also received an All-State honorable mention nod for his work on the defensive line.  

Kewaunee football continues success

The Kewaunee football program still continues to move in the right direction even after a loss to Chilton in the playoffs Friday night. They took home another conference championship and one more playoff win for the 2019 season. Last year the Storm went one round further after finishing the regular season undefeated. Kewaunee knocked off conference rival Southern Door in the Level 2 playoffs last year before falling to Stratford. Owen Kudick clinched the win against Southern Door by scoring the game-winning touchdown in the fourth quarter. The Storm eventually won 31-28.


Owen Kudick was the correct answer to Friday's trivia question. Congratulations to Pete Kline for answering the question correctly! Pete will win a $25 certificate to The Grove in Kewaunee.

Kewaunee falls to Chilton 41-26 on WBDK

The Kewaunee Storm’s season came to end on a bitterly cold Friday evening as the Chilton Tigers pulled away late to come away with a 41-26 victory in Kewaunee. 


The Division 5 Level 2 playoff game started out very similar to last week for the Storm as they fell behind early 13-0.  Chilton’s star running back Gavin Lisowe scored on long runs of 80 and 97 yards as the Tigers took a 19-13 in the first half before the Storm scored on a Ryan Carmichael 1 yard run to recapture the lead 20-19 at the intermission.


The Storm suffered a setback when running back Owen Kudick left the game late in the second quarter with an apparent shoulder injury and did not return. 


The third quarter is when the turning point occurred.  Kewaunee took over after a fumble at the Tiger 15 yard line but was stopped on a fourth and one at the five.  Chilton then went on a long 95-yard drive to score on the final play of the third quarter to take a 27-20 lead into the fourth quarter. 


The Tigers kept the momentum going by scoring twice more to take a commanding 41-20 lead with just 5:34 left in the game.  Kewaunee managed to score on a 1-yard pass from Carmichael to Max Hanrahan but it was not enough at Chilton (9-2) will now advance to take on #1 seed Amherst next Friday in a level 3 playoff in Amherst.  Kewaunee (9-2) finishes a successful season having claimed the MNOLP Conference championship with a 5-0 record.
