Clippers plays spoiler against Gibraltar

The offense of the Sturgeon Bay Clippers boys basketball team ruled the night in Fish Creek as they beat the Gibraltar Vikings 76-42.


Gunnar Tebon led the way again for the Clippers, scoring a game-high 22 points with Jake Schneider (19 points) and Jack Schmelzer (12 points) joining him in double figures. The Clippers were also able to control the Vikings defensively, holding them to just 21 points each half. Luke Steebs led the way for the Vikings with 13 points, but no other player scored more than nine.


Both teams head to the playoffs next week.

Sturgeon Bay boys' basketball battles Southern Door

It is the first of two games in three days for Sturgeon Bay and Southern Door as the pair prepares for battle Thursday night in Brussels. The game is a make-up from a contest originally scheduled for Tuesday before a winter storm wiped out much of the action across northeast Wisconsin. 


The game will feature two of the conference's top scorers with Gunnar Tebon leading the Packerland Conference with 22.6 points per game and Ryan Claflin just a fraction behind, averaging 22.4 points per game. The Clippers are also a half-game ahead of the Eagles in the Packerland Conference standings, but it is the Eagles coming in as the hotter squad. The Eagles are riding a four-game winning streak while the Clippers snapped a three-game losing streak last week with a win over Sevastopol.


Tip is set for 7:30 p.m.

Six swimmers qualify for state meet

The Door County United Swim Team will have plenty of representation at the 2020 State Boys Swimming & Diving Championships at the UW - Natatorium in Madison next week.

Drew Rass and Jacob Norton will also join Aune in the breastroke competition. The 200 yard freestyle relay qualified for state with a time of 1:31.55.

Sturgeon Bay's Stevenson returns to Torrent

A familiar face for Sturgeon Bay soccer fans is returning to the sidelines for the Milwaukee Torrent.


The Milwaukee Torrent announced earlier this week it would be resigning the former Sturgeon Bay and UW-Milwaukee product for another season. In its third season in the National Premier Soccer League, the Torrent went 1-0-2 with five points collected. Stevenson's brother Jaden got a taste of soccer outside of the college ranks last year, playing for the Green Bay Voyageurs.



Sturgeon Bay boys lose third straight

The Sturgeon Bay High School boys’ basketball team finally returned to full strength with eight players scoring points in Tuesday’s game against Appleton Xavier. That compares to just five which has been the norm the past two weeks as flu swept through the locker room. It wasn’t enough though as the Clippers dropped another game, falling 81-64. It was just a three-point margin at halftime but Xavier was able to step up their offensive production in the second stanza, scoring a healthy 46 points.

The Clippers had two players in double figures. Gunnar Tebon netted 23 and Jack Schmelzer had 11 points. Sturgeon Bay has a short turnaround before their next game. They’ll be on the court Thursday against Sevastopol.


Swim team prepares for conference meet

Door County United has one more tune-up before state series competition begins next weekend.


DCU travels to Chilton this Saturday for the conference meet featuring Chilton, Berlin, Kiel, Plymouth School District, Two Rivers/Roncalli. The team was successful its last time out at the Wisconsin Small School Invitational last Saturday. Brock Aune won the 50 meter freestyle and fourth in the 100 breaststroke. Ethan Almstadt took fifth in 200 meter individual medley wh ile Jacob Norton took sixth in the same event. DCU also got top five performance out of its 200 meter medley relay and 200 meter freestyle relay.

Tebon scores 35 in Clippers defeat

A big night for Gunnar Tebon was not enough to lead Sturgeon Bay past Shawano on the road Monday night.


Tebon scored 14 points in the first half and registered another 21 in the second half, but the Clippers lost to Shawano 68-62. The Clippers knocked down seven threes in the contest, three of which came from Tebon and Anthony Jennerjohn knocked down a pair. Jennerjohn and Jake Schneider also scored in double figures for the Clippers.  

Sturgeon Bay boys rally in second half

Facing a one point deficit at halftime in Oconto, the Sturgeon Bay High School boys’ basketball team had to find an offensive spark with a flu battered lineup. It was Gunnar Tebon who answered the call, netting 21 of his career-high 35 points in the second frame to give the Clippers a 69-53 victory. Since Kewaunee doesn’t tip off until 3:30 Saturday afternoon, Sturgeon sits alone in first place in the Packerland Conference.


The boys were the opening match of a Sturgeon Bay-Oconto doubleheader and the game had an unusual 6 PM tip off Friday night. Their next game is Monday in Shawano. That game is a non-conference matchup. Shawano currently sits at 3-5 in the Bay standings. 

Sturgeon Bay girls lose defensive battle

The skid has now hit five of their last six games for the Sturgeon Bay High School girls’ basketball team. The team lost at Oconto, 39-34. The Clippers couldn’t find enough offense in the second half to overcome a dismal offensive start. After 18 minutes of play, Sturgeon Bay had only eight points. Ashley Alberts was the only Clipper in double figures with 17. 


Another tough test awaits on Tuesday when the Clippers host the Peshtigo Bulldogs who come in with a 7-2 record in Packerland play.
