Local volleyball players sign NLI's

Two local volleyball players will continue to play the sport they love at the next level.


Sturgeon Bay volleyball standout Hailey DeGrave made it official Thursday when she signed her National Letter of Intent to play at Lakeland University. DeGrave is coming off a senior season where she earned second-team All-Packerland Conference honors as an all-around player. There is still plenty to go in DeGrave's high school career, who has competed in basketball and track in the past.


Heading a little further from home is Algoma senior setter Jacklyn Dean, who will play next year at Iowa Lakes Community College. Dean is coming off her third straight all-conference season and finished her high school career with over 1,400 assists.

Sturgeon Bay's Maas named state coach of the year

The Wisconsin Soccer Coaches Association made sure the accomplishments of the Division 4 state champion Sturgeon Bay Clippers did not go unnoticed.


Despite not having any of his player named to the All-State squad, Clippers head coach Todd Maas earned his third state coach of the year award earlier this week. Maas also won the award in 2011 and 2017. The Clippers won the state championship earlier this month in a thrilling 2-1 victory over The Prairie School.

Kings of the pitch

The Sturgeon Bay High School boys soccer team won the Division 4 State Championship Saturday afternoon at the Kohler Engines Stadium located within the Uihlein Soccer Park in Milwaukee. The Clippers scored in the second overtime period to defeat The Prairie School, 2-1. Overtime in soccer is not sudden death so Sturgeon Bay had to hold on for another two minutes after the go-ahead goal to secure their second State Title in school history. 

The Prairie School took the lead in the 28th minute thanks to a goal from Max Yde, his 19th of the season. Nicholas Hawkins got the assist thanks to a superb near-side cross that Yde was able to head in past Clipper goalie Joe Wind.

Sturgeon Bay's Eli Dietzel answered in the 41st minute. Dietzel was kept in check by the Hawks for the most part. He had just one shot the entire game but he made it count to get his 32nd tally of the season. Dietzel's goal came off of a corner kick situation. 

Late in the second half Nicholas Hawkins was shown the gate after a red card. The Hawks were put in a tough situation playing one man down into overtime. Sturgeon Bay bided their time until Carson Dvorak finally put one home in the 108th minute to notch the Clippers the golden ball.

Sturgeon Bay wins sectional in overtime thriller on 103.3 The Clipper

Sturgeon Bay soccer passed their most difficult test of the playoffs so far by beating Oostburg for the sectional championship in Kohler on Saturday afternoon. The Clippers needed overtime to take it 2-1. Owen Stevenson scored both of Sturgeon Bay's goals including the game-winner with just 1:25 left in the second overtime period.


Sturgeon Bay controlled play for most of the first half. Stevenson got the Clippers on the board in the 14th minute after a corner kick from CJ Fairchild.


It was a different story in the second half. Oostburg showed why they were the number-1 seed in the region and were undefeated until this game. Marco Gonzalez Moreno scored not even two minutes into the second half to tie the game at 1. The Flying Dutchmen kept the pressure on Sturgeon Bay for much of the rest of the half. They hit the post once and had other good opportunities for goals that they just couldn't put past Clipper keeper Joe Wind. Sturgeon Bay also missed some opportunities in the second half.


In overtime, both teams squandered chances early and Ben DeNamur deflected a shot on the goalline to preserve the tie. Gonzalez Moreno hit the crossbar on another shot attempt. Spencer Hubbard's shot early in the first overtime period went just wide of the net for Sturgeon Bay. In the 109th minute, Eli Dietzel set up Stevenson for the goal past Oostburg keeper Braden Van Ginkel for the deciding goal.


Sturgeon Bay will advance to the state semi-final for the third year in a row and the 8th time in 10 years. The Clippers will play on Thursday in Milwaukee. They will play either at 11 AM or 1:30 PM depending on the seeding of the final four teams. The game will be broadcasted on 103.3 The Clipper and with the pregame starting a half-hour before the game begins.
