Clippers Fall One Game Short Of State Tournament Appearance

The Random Lake Sectional provided both peaks and valleys for the Sturgeon Bay baseball team on June 4th. A thrilling 1-0 semi-final victory over Winnebago Lutheran vaulted the Clippers into the Sectional Championship game. The only run of the game came in the bottom of the 5th inning. Jake Schneider's lead-off single was followed by an Isaac Berkley bunt single. With 2-strikes, Reece Nellis lined an RBI single to right field, and Sturgeon Bay had the only run they would need for victory. In his 3rd consecutive tournament shut out, Jake Schneider
tossed a 3-hitter. In another masterful performance, Jake struck out 7 while not issuing a single walk.


The Sectional Championship game saw a strong Ozaukee team score 3 runs on 3 hits in the top of the 1st inning and never look back. The Warriors scored in every inning, resulting in a 13-2 victory, stopped by the 10-run rule after 5 innings. Ozaukee's hitting attack included 11 hits, and was further aided by 5 Clipper errors. Sturgeon Bay scored single runs in the 4th and 5th innings, while only getting 3 hits in the game. Trent Ehlers took the loss, with relief from Isaac
Berkley and Mitchell Jackson.

Not to be lost in the disappointment of a season-ending defeat was a tremendous year which saw the Clippers finish with a (21-8) season record. The thrilling (12-2) run to end the year saw Sturgeon Bay win a 3rd straight Packerland Conference Championship, a Regional Championship, and a Sectional Semi-Final victory. Those sharing in the life-long memories created by this team includes the players, coaches, families, and all fans and followers of 
Sturgeon Bay baseball. Your support was much appreciated on this journey, and we thank all who have been a part of this special experience.

Clippers baseball drops sectional final to Ozaukee

The Sturgeon Bay Clippers gave up 10 runs before they could score one en route to a 13-2 loss to Ozaukee in the WIAA Division 3 Sectional Final Tuesday in Random Lake.


Trent Ehlers had a rare off night on the mound, giving up six runs on six hits in just 2 1/3 innings of work. Issac Berkley also struggled on the mound, giving up four runs over 1 1/3 innings in relief. Four errors on the night led to four of the 13 runs to be unearned.


The Clippers offense would show life when Chris Lodl scored on a balk in the fourth and Ehlers singled home a run in the fifth. Those two runs were not enough to stop the umpires from calling the game after five innings due to the mercy rule.


The loss capped an otherwise successful season for the Clippers, which won the Packerland Conference and its regional championship en route the sectional title game.

Clippers shutout Winnebago Lutheran Academy 1-0

The Sturgeon Bay Clippers defeated the Winnebago Lutheran Academy 1-0 in a sectional semi-final Tuesday afternoon in Random Lake.  The Clippers shutout was in thanks to Jake Schneider’s strong performance on the mound as he gave up only three hits and struck out seven in going the distance.  Reece Nellis drove in the only run of the game as the Clipper’s will now play the winner of the Brookfield Academy - Ozaukee game to earn a trip to state.  


Strong pitching, pesky bats key Sturgeon Bay run

Sturgeon Bay coach John Berns compares his regional champion Clippers a lot to his 2002 Sevastopol Pioneers team, but only a little bit better. Both teams won 20 games, featured great pitching and a knack for getting on base. Berns says this team is better because they have a strong third arm in their rotation behind Trent Ehlers and Jake Schneider with Issac Berkley. He also credits his assistant coach Kent Berkley with helping raise the team’s baseball IQ at the plate. Berkley says situational hitting has been key.

The Clippers run at a Division 3 title begins at 12:30 p.m. in Random Lake against Winnebago Lutheran. That game can be heard on 910 AM.
