SBHS football transition going well

After having to transfer to 8-man football due to low turnout and player safety concerns, the Sturgeon Bay High School football team is seeing positive results. The team has had a few more members, including a female player, join the squad since the switch and the roster is now at over 20 players. Head Coach Jim Adams says the recent scrimmage at Sevastopol has helped him and the team understand the differences between 8-man and 11-man football.



Adams adds that the team is working on the fundamentals and worrying about improving themselves leading up to the week of their first game at Oakfield on September 6th. The full Sturgeon Bay High School football schedule will be released on a later date.

Sturgeon Bay football begins first 8-man season

The Sturgeon Bay High School football team took the field competitively in 8-man football for the first time.

The team participated in a 4 team scrimmage at Sevastopol on August 16th against Sevastopol, Gibraltar, and Algoma. Head coach Jim Adams says the transition has gone well and the only big difference so far has been the flow of the game.

The team has rescheduled games for the following dates: September 6th at Oakfield, September 20th against Wisconsin Heights, and the Homecoming game on September 27th against Algoma. The full season schedule will be released at a later date. Sturgeon Bay games will be broadcast on 103.3 FM The Clipper this season.

Sturgeon Bay Boys' Soccer Preview

The start of the boys’ high school soccer season is almost upon us and the Sturgeon Bay Clippers are looking to improve on last season after falling just short of their goal. The Clippers are coming off a 17-8 (10-0) regular season record and state semi-finals appearance where they were knocked out by University School. During the offseason, upperclassmen held captains’ practices so players were able to stay in shape and keep their foot on the ball. Having their hardest non-conference schedule ever last year, the Clippers are looking to really improve in that category since they will be playing a lot of the same teams. Even though the team struggled in non-conference play last season Head Coach Todd Maas says it actually helped them in the long run.



Key players returning to the team include: Eli Dietzel, Addison Benzinger, Owen Stevenson, C.J. Fairchild and Dylan Burks. The Clippers regular season begins on August 29th in a matchup against Fox Valley Lutheran.

Safety of players number one reason for switch to 8-man

The Sturgeon Bay High School football team will take the field this upcoming season but they will do it with a few less players. Due to the number of players who went out for the sport this year, the Sturgeon Bay High School football team will be switching from the traditional 11-man football to 8-man. Athletic Director Todd Meikle says the safety of the players comes first and that is the reason why the switch is happening so quickly. Meikle also says he hopes the school can switch back to 11-man in the future but he is also okay with staying at 8-man to build the program back up.



Meikle is currently working towards rescheduling the upcoming games. The full Sturgeon Bay High School football schedule will be announced at a later date.

Sturgeon Bay football switches to 8-man

The Sturgeon Bay High School football team will look a little different when it takes the field this upcoming season and we are not talking about the new players. Starting this football season Sturgeon Bay High School will now be playing 8-man varsity football instead of the traditional 11-man. In a statement, Sturgeon Bay Athletic Director Todd Meikle says “The move will showcase the talents of our athletes on a leveled playing field to match the number of players out for football this fall”.  The school has already rescheduled games including the Homecoming matchup against Algoma on September 27th. The full 2019 Sturgeon Bay football schedule will be announced at a later date.
