Chargers win, take regional title for second straight year
When questioned as to how she planned to prompt continued success following her teams Saturday night victory, Wittenberg-Birnamwood volleyball coach Chris Nier had no specific answer heading into the final week of competition prior to the state championship level.
We just take one day at a time. We will continue to work hard as we normally do, she said.
Its a plan which has so far worked.
Going undefeated in the Central Wisconsin-Eight to earn the Chargers a conference championship, Witt-Birn defeated visiting Shiocton 3-0 to claim its second straight WIAA regional title. Its first in school history came just a season ago.
Tonight went well. We played well as a team, senior Helia Gagnon said. There were a few spots we struggled but we were able to come back.
Shiocton served as a familiar opponent, losing to the Chargers twice in league play during the regular season. And like those, Witt-Birn claimed the victory in this one, 25-16, 25-17, 25-21.
The first two sets, we did a really good job. We put the ball away, Nier said. In the third one, we really started making the errors and were struggling.
Antigo's JV football team routs Marshfield, 60-20
Due to a cancellation, the Antigo junior varsity football team fielded Marshfield in an October 10 night game and blew the Tigers out, 60-20.
According to assistant coach Matt Meronk, the Robins got off to a quick start and played very well offensively for the entire game.
We continued to block, run, and pass well, he noted, We also had a huge kickoff return. Its always nice to get a special teams score.
Defensively we did a great job stopping the run all night long and forced Marshfield to pass the ball, he added, We had a few troubles in the secondary but made a few adjustments the kids responded and adjusted well and created some huge turnovers.
Antigo made short work of the Tigers by grabbing a 27-0 lead after one quarter.
Dominic Smith got things started with a 15-yard touchdown run and booted the extra point, Eric Langseth followed with a 15-yard touchdown pass to Brennen Spencer, and then Collinn Eldridge scored on runs of 16 and 26 yards, with Smith converting both extra point kicks.
Eldridges first score was set up by a fumble recovery on Marshfields 16-yard line by Lucas Schwahn. Sean Locke forced the
Robins fantastic four descend upon state tennis tournament
Excitement and anticipation ran rampant through the Antigo girls tennis program Thursday as four of its players left the high school, and the city limits guided by red and blue flashing lights. Allison Kondzeal, Maya Gaedtke, Izzy Matuszewski and Emily Wald departed for the 46th WIAA girls individual tennis tournament at Nielsen Tennis Stadium on the UW-Madison campus.
It was an exciting day for the Antigo girls at the state tournament, coach Aimee Hein stated.
First up in Division 2 singles competition for the Robins was Kondzela (10-11 record). Her opponent, Josie Seelen (24-7) from Regis, started strong while Kondzelas nerves slowed her start.
Once Allison settled in, her gameplay improved, Hein added.
Seelen, however, wouldnt budge and defeated the Antigo senior 6-0, 6-0 to advance in the tournament.
Although Kondzela was disappointed that her senior season had come to an end, she is proud to have surpassed her goals for the season.
Allisons power and determination got her this far, and she will be missed greatly for that, the coach noted.
Just through the tarp, Maya Gaedtke (17-10) faced Kayla Olson
Seniors recognized as Antigo marks final home match versus Pines
There was a black-out at Sheldon Fieldhouse Tuesday night; but it came courtesy of the Antigo student body.
Exchanging their traditional Red Robin garb for apparel on the dark side, volleyball fans helped mark Antigos final home match of the regular season with festivities which also included a tribute to the varsity squads seven senior players.
Unfortunately, the night also served up a loss with visiting Northland Pines claiming a 3-1 victory. Losing the first set 24-26, Antigo won the second 25-15 before falling in the final two 23-25, 16-25.
The first game was within reach, but we had too many hitting errors to make an impact, coach Andi Gretzinger said. The second game we were able to come out swinging very well, hitting about .230 as a team during the match. We got a great lead and kept going for the win.
With game three serving as a tie-breaker, the Robins relinquished a five-point advantage late in the game, allowing the Eagles to climb back from an 18-13 deficit to knot the score at 18-all and ultimately, claim the win in that and in the fourth and final set.
It came down to mental focus, since I think that is what got us
