Kewaunee boys bounce back against Algoma

A day after not being able to deal Southern Door its first Packerland loss, the Kewaunee Storm took its frustration out on Algoma in a 71-28 victory on Saturday.


The Storm's defense limited the Wolves to less than 16 points in either half while almost dropping 40 themselves as an offense. Part of that was because of the Storm's ability to stretch the defense with seven different players hitting a three-point shot.


Ben Heim led the Storm with 15 points while Cameron Cullen and Saywer Pribek both added 11 points in the win. Carter Zimmerman paced the Wolves in scoring with 10 points.

Kewaunee wrestlers look to bounce back

The Kewaunee wrestling team looks to forget last weekend when it heads to Mishicot for Saturday's regional tournament.


The Storm was swept out of Denmark last week, losing to the host school, Southern Door, and Brillion in consecutive matches. Head coach Daniel Steinhorst said there were some tough matches throughout the day, but there were some he'd like to have back. The Storm will see the Eagles again as well as Mishicot, Reedsville, Oneida Nation, and Valders with three ranked wrestlers. That includes Jack Severin, who is undefeated on the season and is looking for a second straight state championship.


Wrestling starts at 10 a.m.

Storm and Wolves battle in Algoma Saturday

The "war on the shore" will return on Saturday night as the Kewaunee Storm will travel to Algoma to take on the Wolves in a Packerland Conference battle.  The Storm lost to Southern Door on Friday 62-48 and look to get back on the winning track.  Algoma is coming off a tough 46-34 loss to Sevastopol on Thursday.  The game is scheduled to start at 7:30 in Institute.   

Storm girls thunders past Clippers

The Kewaunee Storm laid on the gas in the second half against the Sturgeon Bay Clippers Thursday night,  winning the game 71-29.


Already entering the second half with a healthy 31-19 lead, the Storm expanded that lead even more as they outscored the Clippers 37-10. Neither team shot well from the line, but Claire Kohnle and Mykenzi Uhlers shot well from everywhere else. Kohnle nailed six three-pointers for a 34 point evening while Uhlers added another 18 points with four made three-pointers. Carley Wodack and Autumn Rass led the Clippers in scoring with 10 and nine points respectively in the loss. 

Kewaunee girls host Sturgeon Bay

The Kewaunee Storm hope they can sail past Sturgeon Bay in their Thursday night matchup.


The Storm easily cruised past Algoma 69-19 in their first action since last week's school threat. The Storm had four players score in double figures in the win, led by Mykenzi Uhlers' 16 points. The team is in line to win the Packerland Conference if it can continue to win with a two-game lead over second-place Southern Door.


The Clippers are still looking for their first win over a conference opponent this season. The offense is improving as they scored their highest amount of points in nearly two weeks in their recent 47-39 loss to NEW Lutheran. Carley Wodack scored 14 points in the loss.


Tip is set for 7:30 p.m. 



Storm boys hit the hardwood against Sturgeon Bay

The Kewaunee Storm boys' basketball team will end their brief layoff on Tuesday when they host Sturgeon Bay.


The Storm last played a week ago when they beat Sevastopol 84-49. Alex Rohr went off in that game, knocking down seven three-pointers en route to a 32 point evening. The Storm remain one game behind undefeated Southern Door for the conference crown. The outburst gave him a slim tenth point margin scoring over teammate Ben Heim (16.9 ppg vs 16.8 ppg).


The Clippers beat Gibraltar 80-49 for their fourth victory in a row. Jack Schmelzer continues to lead the Clippers in scoring and rebounding this season.


Tip is set for 7:30 p.m.

Storm girls blitzes Wolves

There were no signs of rust for the Kewaunee Storm girls' basketball team as they beat Algoma 69-19 on Monday night.


The Storm set the tone early by allowing only seven points in the first quarter and 12 in the second quarter. Mykenzi Uhlers led the Storm with 16 points while Taylor Schleis (15 pts), Claire Kohnle scored (11 pts) and Toni Bortolini added (10 pts) also reached double figures in the win. Uhlers did much of her damage from behind the arc, hitting a trio of three-pointers to lead the Storm. Halle Panger paced the Wolves with seven points. 



Kewaunee girls get back on the court against Algoma

The Kewaunee Storm girls' basketball team will back onto the court Monday when they host their lakeshore rivals Algoma on Monday night.


The Storm had last week upended by a school threat that closed the building from Thursday afternoon through the weekend. Toni Bortolini scored 17 points in their last win against Kiel last Tuesday.


The Wolves lost its last game against a surging Peshtigo team 52-24. All seven players collected points, led by Emily Kirchman's seven points. 


Tip is set for 7:30 p.m.

School threat postpones Storm/Eagles' basketball game

A clash between the Packerland's top two teams will have to wait.


The Friday night matchup between Kewaunee and Southern Door's boys' basketball teams has been postponed. The game was supposed to have taken place at Kewaunee, which has been the scene of an investigation since the district received a threatening call involving a gun Thursday morning.  Students were sent home early on Thursday afternoon and district officials decided later that evening to cancel school on Friday. Thursday's away game for the girls' basketball team at Sturgeon Bay was also postponed.


As of 2 p.m. Friday, the wrestling team's quadrangular meet involving Southern Door, Denmark, and Brillion was still on for Saturday morning at 10 a.m.

School threat postpones Storm/Clippers girls' basketball game

The Kewaunee girls' basketball game against Sturgeon Bay has been postponed until a later date.


Kewaunee High School was under a lockdown for much of the morning due to an outside threat mentioning a gun. Students there were released early after it was deemed safe for them to leave.


The Storm's next scheduled game is Monday against Algoma.


There has been no announcement about the boys' game scheduled for Friday at Kewaunee against Southern Door.

Storm boys dominate Pioneers

The Kewaunee Storm boys’ basketball team rolled to an easy 84-49 victory over the Sevastopol Pioneers Tuesday night in Institute.   Alexander Rohr scored 32 for the Storm to lead the way as Kewaunee took a commanding 48-25 lead into halftime and cruised to an easy win on the road.  Kewaunee hit from long range knocking down 11 three-pointers with Rohr having seven triples.  The Pioneers were only able to manage one scorer in double figures with Cole Dvorak earning team-high points with ten. 

Storm girls tops Raiders

The Kewaunee Storm came away with a big 58-54 non-conference victory over the Kiel Raiders Tuesday evening.  The Storm had a 35-26 lead at halftime and was able to hang on to the four point victory in Kewaunee.  Toni Borolini scored 17 points and McKenzi Uhlers tallied 12 more as the Storm was able to control Kiel’s top two scorers down the stretch to come away with the victory. 

Storm girls keep edge against Southern Door

The Kewaunee girls' basketball team now has a two-game lead in the Packerland Conference standings after beating Southern Door 70-51 Monday night.


The game went back and forth at the beginning, but then Storm went on a 20-4 run that set the tone for the rest of the game. The Storm carried a 39-22 advantage into the break before outscoring the Eagles 31-29 in the second half.

Storm boys hope to keep streak alive against Pioneers

The Kewaunee boys' basketball team looks to avoid peeking ahead at its next opponent when it plays Sevastopol on Tuesday.


The Storm is coming off a 78-73 win over Peshtigo that required an extra frame to decide. Alex Rohr and Sawyer Pribek each crossed the 20-point threshold as the Storm outscored the Bulldogs 8-3 in order to secure their fifth straight Packerland win. A seven point loss to Oconto earlier this season remains their only blemish on the season, putting them one game behind their Friday night opponent in Southern Door.


The Pioneers ran into a pair of hot-hands in its 94-69 loss to Gibraltar on Friday. Cole Dvorak scored 16 points and Jack DeYoung tallied 14 points in the loss that sent their conference record to 0-4.


Tip is set for 7:30 p.m.

Storm hope for deja vu against Eagles

The Kewaunee Storm girls' basketball team hopes to add some extra distance over Southern Door when the two teams match up again on Monday night.


The Storm won round one on Saturday with a 57-33 win. That gives the Storm a one-game advantage over the Eagles, who also came into the match-up undefeated in the Packerland Conference. 


While the Storm get balanced scoring  from Claire Kohnle (11.8 ppg), Mykenzi Uhlers (11.4 ppg), and Toni Bortolini (9.4 ppg), Nicole Norton leads the entire Packerland Conference in that category, averaging 26 points per game.


Tip is set for 7:30 p.m.

Storm, Eagles girls prepare for Packerland Showdown

One of the top two teams in the Packerland girls' basketball conference will finally have a blemish after the Kewaunee Storm and the Southern Door Eagles face each other on Saturday.


The Storm comes into the matchup having won their last five overall, including a 64-33 win over Sevastopol. Three players scored double figures in the contest, including 14 from Toni Bortolini. 


The Eagles have won three of their last five, including a nail-biting, buzzer-beating win over Sevastopol earlier this week. 


The loser of this game will not have to wait long to play each other again to get revenge. The Eagles play each other on Tuesday after Saturday's 7:30 p.m. start.

Storm boys look to knock off Peshtigo

The Kewaunee Storm boys' basketball team is firing on all cylinders heading into its Packerland matchup against the Peshtigo Bulldogs Friday night.


The Storm has scored 70 points in each of its last three conference games, including a 77-37 blowout against Sevastopol earlier this week. That was not the case when the Storm faced the Bulldogs a month ago when it won in a dogfight 54-51. Sawyer Pribek led the way with 14 points while two other Storm players reached double figures. The Bulldogs' Landon Lemke scored 14 points in the loss.


Tip is set for 7:30 p.m.

Storm wrestling heads to Bonduel quad

The Storm have four wrestlers ranked in the state including top-ranked Jack Severin at 132, Max Severin at 138, Mitchell Thompson at 170, and Jason Reinke at 195. 


Bonduel has five ranked wrestlers heading into the quad after the team went 2-1 last week including a loss to Southern Door. Ranked wrestlers include Luis Lagunes at 132, Jayson Toellner at 138, Max Sokolski at 160, Donovon Ligue at 170, and Kaden Bergsbaken at 195.


Derek Lockhart is ranked at 285 pounds for Almond-Bancroft while Oconto does not have anyone on the list.

Storm girls breeze by Pioneers

The Kewaunee Storm used a balanced attack to pull away from the Sevastopol Pioneers 64-33 Tuesday night.  Opening a 20 point lead by halftime, the Storm cruised to an easy victory at home.  Toni Bortolini paced the Storm with 14 points while Mykenzi Uhlers added 13.  The Pioneers were led by Zoe Kuehn with a game-high 20 points.

Storm boys settle Pioneers

The Kewaunee Storm basketball team scored early and often in its 77-37 win over Sevastopol Monday night.


The Storm went on a 13-0 run to start the game before Cesar Sandoval broke up on the six minute scoring drought for the Pioneers. The Storm responded with a 24-0 run over the final 12 minutes to give them a 37-3 lead at the break. Both teams went deep into their bench in the final stanza with the Pioneers outscoring the Storm 23-15.

Storm boys look to continue winning ways

The Kewaunee boys' basketball team hopes to stretch their Packerland Conference winning streak to four when they host Sevastopol on Monday night.


The Storm has not lost in Packerland play since they were beat by Oconto at home in December to the tune of 68-61. Ben Heim's 24 points last Friday night avenged that loss as the Storm went on the road to beat the Blue Devils 71-61. 


The Pioneers look to rebound from a 61-41 loss on Tuesday to Sturgeon Bay. They had their game on Saturday against Algoma postponed. Cole Dvorak is leading the Pioneers with over 13 points per game while Jack deYoung is right around 10 ppg.


Tip is set for 7:30 p.m. 

Storm boys down Oconto

The Kewaunee Storm boys' basketball team was able to expand on its four-point halftime lead to beat the Oconto Blue Devils 71-61.


Ben Heim once again led the Storm in scoring with 24 points, but also got great nights from Sawyer Prebock (18 points) and Alex Rohr (12 points). It was needed as the Blue Devils' Caleb Moe registered 26 points  on the evening. Josh Woller and Will Sherman chipped in 11 and 10 points respectively in the loss.

Storm boys head to Oconto

Kewaunee looks to rebound from its non-conference loss on Thursday when it returns to Packerland play against Oconto on Saturday.


The Storm struggled in its matchup against Valders, falling 68-44. The Blue Devils are coming off a strong performance against Gibraltar, winning the game 83-62. Josh Woller led the Blue Devils with 30 points. Oconto won the previous matchup this season 68-61. Ben Heim scored 28 points, but the Blue Devils' Caleb Moe and Kadin Baxter combined to score 31 points in the victory.


Tip is set for 7:30  p.m.

Storm girls tame Bulldogs

The Kewaunee Storm girls' basketball team kept a stranglehold on first place in the Packerland Conference with a 37-30 win over the Peshtigo Bulldogs.


The game was tight in the first half with both teams tied 16-16 at halftime, but the Storm had the edge in the second half by outscoring the Bulldogs 21-14 in the final frame. Both teams did a good job taking out each other's offensive stars. Peshtigo's Sydney Lund was limited to just eight points while Kewaune's Claire Kohnle and Toni Bortolini were kept to a combined five points. Mykenzi Uhlers stepped up for the Storm, scoring a game-high 18 points in the win.

The two teams meet Friday night with the tip at 7:30 p.m.

Storm wrestlers go 2-1 in quad duals

The Kewaunee Storm wrestling team won two out of its three duals on Thursday night, falling to host Wittenberg-Birnamwood while beating Peshtigo and Rosholt.


The Storm opened the night with a 42-30 win over Peshtigo before falling to Wittenberg-Birnamwood by a slim 36-34 margin. The Storm's third dual wrapped up quickly against an undermanned Rosholt squad, winning by a score of 51-17.


The Storm will next wrestle on January 14th in a quad meet against Oconto, Almond Bancroft, and Bonduel.

Kewaunee to wrestle Peshtigo, Rosholt, and Wittenberg-Birnamwood Thursday

Kewaunee's Thursday got a lot more interesting when its dual wrestling meet against Peshtigo got turned into a road quad against Rosholt and Wittenberg-Birnamwood.


The Storm have been on a roll as of late as they have not allowed a single contested match win over its last few duals. Several of its wrestlers are undefeated on the season and four of them are ranked: Jack Severin (1st, 132 pounds), Max Severin (honorable mention, 138 pounds), Mitchell Thompson (honorable mention, 170 pounds) and Jason Reinke (10th, 195 pounds).


Peshtigo has no ranked wrestlers and is 1-0 in the Packerland Conference thanks to a win over Oconto where it won all three contested matches. 


Rosholt will offer Jack Severin his toughest match of the season if the roster line up correctly. He could face the Hornets' Bo Niewiadomski, who is currently ranked third in the state.


Wittenberg-Birnamwood may offer the staunchest test with four ranked wrestlers entering Thursday night. Pierson Potrykus (9th, 126 pounds), Bryce Zoromski (honorable mention, 145 pounds), Wyatt Esker (fourth, 152 pounds), and David Gauderman (4th, 220 pounds) could give tough tests to Storm wrestlers.

The Storm has lost its two non-conference matchups this year, falling to Kiel and Brillion in consecutive games in mid-December.


The Vikings come into the matchup 3-6 on the season, losing their last game to Roncalli 61-50. Jackson Olson, Cole Hove, and Peyton Dietrich all average at least 11 points for the Vikings.


Tip is set for 7:15 p.m.
