Storm hosts Blazers in volleyball matchup

In another Packerland Conference matchup, Kewaunee takes on NEW Lutheran/Providence Academy Thursday night. 


The Storm started their season off 0-3 at the Hilbert tournament and a match against Mishicot. Taking on the Blazers could be a test for Kewaunee as both teams finished with the same record last season in Packerland play. Kewaunee and the Blazers were both at 2-6 in conference play last year, so a good match should be in play as the Storm look to win their first match. 


The Blazers have started off well, going 6-3 in their tournament play. As stated earlier they had the same exact conference record as the Storm, so a close match could be expected from Kewaunee. NEW Lutheran/Providence Academy had a 12-26 record last season, so outside of the Packerland they tested themselves in non-conference play. 


The match is set for 7:00 P.M. in Kewaunee.

Kewaunee hung on in a hard fought battle against Mineral Point, taking home a win 21-20. 


After a long bus ride, the Storm came out ready to play and improved their record to 2-0. Both games for Kewaunee have been close decisions, winning by a total of 8 Points in their 2 combined wins. A 6:00 game start did not phase the Storm it seems, as they took home a hard fought win for a good bus ride home. No stats were given at this point. 


Mineral Point falls to 0-2 after losing big last week to Lancaster 52-19. They will look to get on the win train next week.

Kewaunee opens 2022 football season at home vs. Kiel

The Kewaunee football team will try to pick up where they left off last season when they host Kiel Thursday evening.


The Storm went 10-3 last season en route to a Packerland Conference crown and an appearance in the second round of the WIAA Playoffs. Returning to the team is starting quarterback Mitchell Thompson who was All-Conference First Team last season and is on the watchlist for the Dave Krieg Award this year.


The Raiders went 5-5 last year as they finished in the middle of the pack in the Eastern Wisconsin Conference before bowing out to Catholic Memorial in the first round.

Kewaunee tennis opens season against Sheboygan Falls

The Kewaunee girls' tennis team will play in its first meet of the season on Tuesday when they host Sheboygan Falls.


The Storm did not fare well against the Falcons last year in their pre-school year matchup, getting swept 7-0. The hope is the Storm will be able to add players to the squad after only fielding a six-girl team last season.


Matches begin at 4 p.m. 

Thompson adds another nomination

Senior Quarterback Mitchell Thompson has the chance to earn some hardware this season. Besides the obvious gold ball every team is going for at the end of the season, Thompson is one of many senior quarterbacks around the state mentioned on the Preseason Watch List for the Dave Krieg Award. 


The Dave Krieg Award, won last year by Franklin quarterback Myles Burkett, who now plays for the Wisconsin Badgers, is given to the top senior quarterback in the state. Thompson is arguably one of the best signal caller in the conference, so the nomination is well deserved. Kewaunee’s dominant offense of last season will need to become more pass heavy without Anthony Jerabek, but does return Jesse Morales-Hernandez, who toasted the Southern Door Eagles for over 200 yards rushing in 2 weeks last season. The Storm do lose top receiving threat from last year Benjamin Heim, but saw others step up throughout the season last year down the stretch. Thompson threw for just over 1300 Yards and 13 touchdowns last season, good enough to earn him first team honors. Kewaunee will look to rely on the senior to lead them to another conference championship again this season. 


The only other player from around the area on the list was Southern Door quarterback Jack Peterson. Thompson will have to show off his great arm that was on display last season, to lead the Storm to potentially another conference championship and beyond. 


Kewaunee begins defense of conference title

As the new fall football season begins, the Kewaunee Storm will be back on the practice field once again. Kewaunee has a rich history with the football program having success, and they are looking for success again this season. 


The Kewaunee Storm are coming off of a Packerland Conference championship, after claiming it over inter-conference rival Southern Door in the last week of the season by a score of 33-0. The Storm would finish the season at 10-3 and 7-0 in conference play.


Kewaunee made it to Level 2 of the postseason after defeating Southern Door once again 39-0, but was narrowly beat by the #1 seed Amherst Falcons 28-21. Kewaunee looks to dominate the Packerland Conference once again after outscoring conference opponents 149-45 in the regular season.

Kewaunee returns their starting quarterback Mitchell Thompson who was All-Conference First Team Quarterback last season. Kewaunee opens their season Thursday August 18th against the Kiel Raiders. 


The two teams squared off Week 1 last season also, as Kewaunee lost their opener to the Raiders by a score of 13-7. Kewaunee will be the team projected to win the conference this season, as they returned a lot of key starters.
