Southern Door girls edges Denmark

The pendulum swung back and forth between Southern Door and Denmark before it settled in the Eagles' favor in a 59-58 victory.


Ashlyn Delfosse saved the day for the Eagles, hitting four three-pointers in the second half en route to 15 points in the second half and 21 points for the game. Bella Price added 11 points in the win for the Eagles. 


Kiarrah Micolichela helped make things interesting in the second half for the Vikings, scoring 13 of her team-high 16 points in the second half. 

Southern Door girls head to Denmark for invite

The Southern Door girls' basketball team will face four regional rivals in their first tournament of the year in Denmark.


Cedar Grove-Belgium, Denmark, and Two Rivers will all be featured in the two-day tournament. Games will take place at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Friday and noon and 2 p.m. for the Saturday games that will decide the placement in the tournament. 


After being forced into overtime, the Eagles outscored Shiocton Indians 13-9 to take the game 57-53. Callie Miller led the way with 22 points while Isabella Price added 11 points and Alianna Dufek scored 10 points in the victory. 

Eagles boys avenge playoff loss to Denmark

It will not replace last year's playoff exit, but Southern Door's season-opening win over Denmark 62-49 victory will heal some wounds.


The Eagles jumped out to a 31-20 lead over the Vikings and never looked back. Drew Daoust led all scorers with 27 points, including two of his three three-pointers in the second half. Taylor Schaefer added 16 points in the victory.


Jack Dewar hit three three-pointers en route to a 12 point night, Denmark's only double-figure scorer in the contest. 



Eagles return main core and look to start season strong against Denmark

Southern Door will open with the team they have most recently faced, as the Eagles will open up their season at home against the Denmark Vikings. 


Southern Door, who was 15-11 overall and 11-5 in Packerland Conference play, was eliminated by Denmark 51-34 in round two of the WIAA postseason. The Eagles do not lose many contributors from last season's team, as they will still have their top three scorers, and most importantly Drew Daoust back. Daoust is ranked in the state and was a key contributor last season, and is projected to take another step up as well. 


Denmark was one of the best teams in Division three last season, but they have lost a lot of key talent from their team last season. They can thank their 18-9 record on Donovan Short, who is now playing basketball for Wisconsin-Green Bay, Hayden Konkol, Kenneth Satori, and many other contributors who have graduated. The Vikings will still have talent, but the Eagles could play spoiler for the Vikings season opener. 


Tip is scheduled for 7:30 in Brussels. 

Eagles girls travel to Shiocton looking to stay perfect

The Eagles of Southern Door’s Girls Basketball team will look to improve to 2-0 on the season when they travel to Shiocton Tuesday night. 


Southern Door took down the Wausaukee Rangers 64-41 Friday night behind a huge showing from Allianna Dufek. After tearing her ACL dating back to the last fall season, Dufek wasted no time getting back to dominating the basketball court, as she scored 22 points, leading the Eagles. Southern Door faced Shiocton last season, and fell to them in their season opener 59-34. This Eagles team is more experienced however, and should play a much closer game than last season. 


Shiocton is opening their season against the Eagles, as their game against the Sevastopol Pioneers was postponed due to their football team being in the WIAA State Football Championship game. Shiocton is only losing one senior from last year's 16-11 team, which is Larissa Young, who was their leading scorer with 9.9 Points Per Game. 


The game is set to begin at 7:15 in Shiocton. 

Southern Door Girls Basketball opens at Wausaukee

The Southern Door Eagles will take on the Wausaukee Rangers in their season opener on Friday night in Wausaukee. 


Southern Door hired a new head coach this offseason, as Andy Bruess will take over for the Eagles and make his Southern Door debut on the road. His team will be led by multiple underclassmen players, as the Eagles did not have a senior on the roster last year. The 6-19 record of last year should be much improved upon. One of the team's wins last year was against these same Wausaukee Rangers, as they won 45-41 with Paige Olson scoring 10 points leading the Eagles. 


Wausaukee also had a challenging season last year, as they finished 4-20 overall and were not able to win a game in their conference. The Rangers got their season underway already, as they took a close loss to Florence 52-46. Wausaukee relies on Senior Rachel Schleis who averaged double digits last season. 


Tip scheduled for 7:15. 

Daoust expected to lead Eagles into new season

The Eagles of Southern Door had their seven year streak of conference championships snapped last season after a fourth place finish. 


The Eagles were contenders for an eighth straight year all the way to the end of the season, until they fell to the Kewaunee Storm in Kewaunee 61-40. Southern Door was led by freshman guard Drew Daoust all season, as he entered the starting lineup four games into the season and never looked back. Daoust, ranked #18 as a point guard in the state of Wisconsin in the class of 2025, averaged 19.4 points per game on 56% shooting. 


Southern Door also sees most of their roster come back, as they lost two seniors who got starter type minutes. Jared Hawkey and Taylor Schaefer are two names to watch for the Eagles, as they were dominant on the defensive end, with Hawkey averaging 2 blocks per game from his Forward spot. 


One area Southern Door could improve on to win potentially more games this season is their Free Throw percentage. The team as a whole shot 57.4% from the line throughout the season, where their opponents shot 64%. Southern Door had six losses on their record of 10 points or less, in four of those six losses the team was 50 percent or worse from the line, including a 44% (13/29) performance in a seven point loss to Oconto. 


Southern Door opens their season against a new look, yet familiar opponent in Denmark at home on November 22nd. Packerland play begins December 1st in Oconto. 

Schaefer earns All-State football honors

Southern Door's Taylor Schaefer keeps earning recognition for his stellar season weeks after it ended.


Schaefer earned All-State Small School honors for his work at the linebacker position. Schaefer led the team with 151 tackles, registering 12 sacks and 44 tackles for a loss. He also forced four fumbles and had two recoveries.

Eagles Girls Basketball take on new season with a change of coach

The Southern Door Eagles girls basketball team faced a challenging season last year, but will return every single varsity player from last season, including sophomore Kendra Shimon, who earned First Team All-Conference honors in her freshman season. 


The Eagles found themselves finishing the season with a 6-19 record overall, and a 5-11 record in the conference, which was good for seventh in the Packerland. Not only does Southern Door get their whole varsity roster back, the Eagles also gain back Allianna Dufek, who made her presence known on the volleyball front in the fall, getting 2nd team All-Conference honors. 


The Eagles will also get more years of growth from their guard play, as Junior Payton Gilbertson, and Sophomore Ashlyn Delfosse are expected to take leaps this season to help Southern Door be competitive in the conference. The Eagles have also gone through a coaching change after former head coach Jason Shimon stepped down after one game last season, Taylor Jandrin would go on and be named the interim coach for the rest of last season. Andy Bruess has been given the keys to the team this season, as he was named the head coach to replace Jandrin and Shimon. 


The Eagles will open up their season on the road in Wausaukee on Friday November 18th, and Packerland play begins for Southern Door on November 29th against the reigning Packerland champion Oconto Blue Devils.

Bousley earned her spot as one of the top five runners not competing as a qualified team member. She reached the leaderboard in 10th place at the Manitowoc Lutheran sectional with a time of 21:23. She has cracked the 21:30 barrier five times, including two times breaking 21 minutes. 


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

Eagles face Chilton in level two clash

Southern Door will take on the Chilton Tigers in a WIAA regional semifinal matchup in Brussels Friday night. 


The Eagles, after rolling over the Brillion Tigers 49-0 last Friday, will take on another Eastern Wisconsin Conference team in Chilton. The Tigers have been tough competition for a lot of teams this year, led by their great defense. Southern Door has arguably one of the best defenses in their section of the bracket, if not their sectional in whole. The Eagle offense has been able to show their strides as of late as well, putting up 40 points in back to back weeks against the Clippers and the Tigers. They will look to put more up to get them to the regional finals. 


Chilton defeated the Clintonville Truckers 7-6 in a low scoring defensive battle. The Tigers were able to pick off Quarterback Kade Rosenow twice, who was in the top of the state in passing yards and touchdowns. Chilton is able to run it on the ground well, starting with their running back Jared Gehl who was able to run for 129 yards against the Truckers. The two teams have similar strengths on offense and defense, so it should be set up for a great game in Brussels. 


Kickoff is set for 7:00 P.M. 

Bousley soars to state meet

Freshman Emma Bousley is one-for-one in her bids for the state meet in her young high school cross-country career for Southern Door.


Bousley ran a time of 21:23 to clinch the state berth and a 10th-place finish. The Eagles girls finished in 14th place with 361 points.

Eagles fly past Lions on 104.1 WRLU

The Southern Door Eagles avenged their 2020 playoff loss to Brillion in a big way on Friday night, beating them 49-0.


Zach Lynch tallied three touchdowns on the ground while Jonas Jandrin scored two of his own through the air and on the ground. Drew Daoust was the one that provided Jandrin the toss to put the game well out of reach for the Eagles. Christian Counard even got in on the act on defense, taking an interception return for the touchdown.


A feel-good moment of the game happened late when backup quarterback Lauden Berg found his brother Braylon for a touchdown pass. 


The Eagles will be back in action next week when they host Chilton in Brussels.

Eagles volleyball travels to Tigers for regional finals

The Southern Door Eagles will have to face a tall task to get to sectionals as they travel to Howards Grove on Saturday. 


Southern Door was able to battle back against the Lancers of Manitowoc Lutheran on Thursday night. The Eagles faced an early deficit after dropping the first two sets by a score of 17-25 and 18-25. After some changes were made and a shift of momentum, Southern Door battled all the way back to force a 5th set after a 2-2 series tie. The Eagles would go on to win 15-13 in that last set, completing the reverse sweep of the Lancers. 


Howards Grove ran through the Algoma Wolves with ease, with a sweep in scores of 25-6, 25-10 and 25-8. The Tigers are the reigning champions in the state in Division 5, and will be a tall task for the Eagles. Southern Door is rolling in with some momentum and recently some good volleyball being played, but we will see if that is enough for the Eagles. 


The match is set to be played in Howards Grove at 7:00. 

Eagles volleyball comeback sends them to regional final

With their backs against the wall, the Southern Door Eagles pulled off the comeback Thursday night against Manitowoc Lutheran 17-25, 18-25, 25-23, 25-13, 15-13.


Leading the Eagles back from a two-deficit to a five-set victory were Kendra Shimon (5 aces, 16 kills, nine digs), Allianna Dufek (9 blocks, seven kills), Paige Olson (10 kills), Greta Gutschow (25 digs), and Alaina Shimon (36 assists, four kills, three aces). 


The Eagles will now face defending state champion Howards Grove on the road for a 7 p.m. regional final match. 

Eagle runners set for Saturday's race

Southern Door will travel south to Meadow Links Golf Course on Saturday for their sectional meet in Division three. 


The Eagles have had success this season from their boys team, led by sophomore Ben Grota. Grota has run fast all season, and picked up a PR at the Panther Invite on September 29th. He ran a 17:14 that day, which was good for fifth place. Every runner on the boys team has had a personal record recorded this season. 


The girls team was led by Brooke Strege, until she was shut down towards the end of the season. From there, Emma Bousley, a freshman, has really taken off and impressed this season. Bousley ran a 20:55 also at the Panther Invite, where she took 12th place in the girls standings. 


The runners will look to potentially make a trip to state if they run well on Saturday.  

Eagles look to get past Lions in WIAA postseason

After receiving a one seed in the WIAA reveal show on Saturday, the Packerland conference champion Southern Door Eagles will be back in action as they host the Brillion Lions. 


Southern Door ended their season perfect at 9-0 overall and 7-0 in conference play. A big factor of that record has been the defense, who was able to shut out the Sturgeon Bay Clippers last week, and not allow them to even reach the red zone on any of their drives. Drew Daoust and Zack Lynch have also been key contributors to the offense to keep them afloat and to make sure the team is not one dimensional. The Eagles have had some trouble with Brillion in the past, but they are looking to make things right with a win on Friday night. 


Brillion had more of a challenging year than most expected, with their overall record being 3-6 and 3-4 in the Eastern Wisconsin Conference. The Lions were led to that record and the eight seed in the playoffs by play from their defense and Running Back Jaden Bastian. Brillion was able to sneak into the playoffs thanks to losing to some top teams in their conference and overall strength of schedule. 


The game is scheduled for 7:00 kickoff in Brussels. 

DCU swimmers continue season at Shawano

The invitational had both swimming and diving included in the scoring, however, DCU does not have a diving team. The competition consisted of teams from Milwaukee and the surrounding area. Danica Neville (SDHS) had a phenomenal meet, finishing 10th overall in the 100-yard backstroke and 5th overall in the 100-yard breaststroke, scoring 28 points. Cassie Rankin (SEV) finished 8th in the 100-yard butterfly and 9th in the 500-yard freestyle, scoring 20 points overall. Sanya Wienke (SBHS) was very successful with her 7th-place finish in the 200-yard individual medley and 14th place in the 100-yard freestyle, scoring 15 points for the team. Caitlyn Hasenjager (SEV) and Chloe Bissen (SBHS) both had great meets as well, scoring 13 and 5 points, respectively. Despite not coming home with the win, the team swam exceptionally well and held their own against some teams from outside the conference.


Thursday's meet begins at 5:30 p.m.
