Incha, Grabowsky lead Robins to 2-0 win in soccer
space
The Lady Red Robins soccer team took on the Medford Red Raiders Tuesday at home for the second time this season in a very exciting game.

The girls came out exceptionally strong and played amazingly well together, coach Bethany Bauknecht said. They were passing the ball and communicating beautifully.

Annette Olsen was in the goal for Antigo and she had 11 saves—her fewest this season.

The Robins defense played an incredible game and only allowed Medford four shots on goal—the fewest thus far.

Maggie Gallenberg had a tremendous game, along with senior captain Marissa Hartman, Lili Wagner and Emily Wald, Bauknecht said. With defense playing such a great game that allowed them to keep the ball up by the midfield and ultimately allowed us to have 22 shots. Another record for the Lady Robins.

Led by senior captain Jillian Incha along with junior captain Molly Brown, the Lady Robins kept the middle clear in moving the ball up to attack. Kate Stensberg, Montana Grabowsky, Anna Reineke and Areonna Schreiber each had an exceptional game taking turns at Medford’s goalie.

Incha happened to be in the right spot at just the right time an

Two teams remain undefeated in Little League action
space
Wednesday’s Little League contest saw two teams emerge unscathed so far this season as the Major League Astros and Minor League River Cats each carry perfect 3-0 records.

Finishing without a distinct winner, the battle between the Mets and the Royals ended in a 6-all stalemate with the game being called due to a time limit rule.

The pitching prowess of Henery Berger (2 IP, 4K), Connor Kolz (2 IP, 4K), and Ryan Zima (1 IP, 2 K) went head-to-head against Royals aces, Alex Stank (2 IP, 2K), Reed Kuenzli (1 IP), Zachary Zupon (1 IP, 1 K), and Malik Brisby (1 IP, 1 K).

At the plate, the Mets were led by Kolz, 2-for-3, 2 doubles and an RBI; Zima went 2-for-2, RBI; Trevin Walbeck was 1-for-2; and Sam Bretl hit 1-for-3 with an RBI.

Powering the Royals bats were Brisby, 3-for-3, Double; Reed Kuenzli going 2-for-3; Alex Stank was 2-for-3; Alex Samolinski was 1-for-3 and Logan Wilhelm went 1-for-3.

A big third inning sent the Astros over the Tigers 18-5 to stay on top of its division at 3-0.

Earning multiple hits for the Astros was Austin Schedlbauer with three hits and a double, Casey Smith, two hits and a triple, Joe Volpentesta, two h

Baseball clinches GNC title as nine seniors are honored
space
The Antigo High School baseball team clinched the Northern Lakes Conference title Tuesday with a 13-3 Senior Night romp over Medford Tuesday at Kretz Bros. Memorial Park.

The five-inning victory moved Antigo to 10-1 in league play and 15-5 overall. It visits Rhinelander (7-3 in GNC play) Thursday for a 5 p.m. first pitch. The Robins trimmed the Hodags by 5-2 on April 29 in Antigo.

Taking their final bow during the regular season was senior members, Jake Husnick, Alex Nagel, Ben Jansen, Jake Fleischman, Nick Greening, Cody Below, Max Nowinsky, Arin VerHagen and Brian Cuevas Ruiz.

Tuesday’s ballgame was never really in doubt.

Antigo gave up one run to the Red Raiders in the first inning behind starter Nagel and then clobbered its way to 10 first-inning runs. They hit around the order and Brady Tatro swatted a two-run homer and two-run double to lead the barrage.

The guys came out ready to go as noted by our offensive start, Antigo coach Scott Farmer said, Brady Tatro, Husnick and Hunter Kirsch all had great days at the plate.  

Brady hit everything hard, he noted, and Alex and Ben did a great job shutting down their bats.

One of 10 teams to compete at the Golden Sands Golf Course, Witt-Birn finished second overall with a 359. Weyauwega-Fremont finished with a three-stroke advantage to claim first with a 356.

Rounding out the performances were Pacelli, 361; Oconto, 371; Shiocton, 409; Bonduel, 410; Manawa, 423; Marion, 430; Menominee-Gresham, 518; and Iola-Scandinavia, 519.

Wega’s Alex Hulbert was the individual medalist at 75. Ryan Schuelke of Manawa was second at 79 followed by Andrew Wesphal of Oconto with an 83.

Witt-Birn’s Maverick Bushman and Kyle Adamski tied at 86. Teammates Madi Bushman came in with an 88 followed by Gavin Czerwonka at 99 and Devin Gruna at 113.

Kyle and Madi posted their best rounds of the year and Maverick played well enough to finish fourth overall, Bartletti s
