Chargers leave Oconto Falls stunned after hoops upset
The No. 6 seeded Wittenberg-Birnamwood boys basketball team pulled off an amazing feat on Tuesday evening during the first round of the WIAA Division 3 regional playoffs. Playing a complete game and buying into the philosophy that Coach Lon Ebel has been instructing all season, the Chargers beat No. 3 Oconto Falls on the road 60-54 for the upset win.
“Great effort and a gritty performance from the guys tonight,” Ebel said after the win. “I'm extremely proud of them. We put together a total game in all facets tonight and it sure came at the right time. We maintained our composure throughout the game and played a tremendous second half. We did a lot of the little things right tonight and our free throw shooting was clutch in the fourth quarter.
“Everything we have been preaching for the 22 regular season games came together in entirety for the first time this season,” Ebel continued. “We displayed patience on the offensive end of the floor and worked for great shots, got to the foul line, and just got after it on the defense end of the floor and on the boards even though we were outmatched in size.”
The Chargers second half push came at the appropriate time, m
Witt-Birn girls take regional crown, play Xavier next
Coming off of an 18-point game against Clintonville last Friday, Micah Nier and the No. 1-seeded Wittenberg-Birnamwood Lady Chargers basketball team continued its playoff run with a 53-32 win over No. 2 Peshtigo on Saturday.
“The girls came out ready to play tonight,” Coach Mike Balliett observed. “We shot the ball very well and played a very solid defensive game. Kirsten Clark and Micah Nier played very well, and Siri Zeinert controlled the offensive part of our game.”
The Lady Chargers jumped out to a 19-6 lead after the first quarter. Peshtigo hung close in the second, but Coach Balliett’s team already led 30-16 at the half.
The early, first-quarter lead for Witt-Birn proved sufficient as Peshtigo was only outscored in the second half 23-16. The Charger defense stepped up once again, nabbing eight steals and forcing a total of 15 Bulldog turnovers in order to take control of the game speed.
Nier continues to improve after having returned mid-season, dropping 22 points on the Bulldogs in Witt-Birn’s second postseason victory in 2015. Nier shot 9-13 from the field, including 2-4 from three-point range, while also going 2-2 from the foul line.
Antigo gymnasts earn trip to state championships for a 12th straight year
A Red Robin dynasty continues.
For a 12th consecutive year, a typically unheard of feat in the realm of high school sports, the Antigo gymnastics team has earned a berth in the WIAA state championships.
“They have worked incredibly hard,” head coach Julie Langseth said. “It’s still very exciting after all of these years.”
Guided by all around qualifier Tyler Tatro as well as teammates Alivia Weix, Kim Swan and Alli McCann who will also make next week’s trip to Wisconsin Rapids as individuals, Antigo posted a combined score of 126.875 to finish second overall at Thursday’s Division 2 sectional meet inside Sheldon Fieldhouse.
Ashland took first at 133.675. A continual Great Northern Conference standout, the senior-heavy Oredockers swept the top three all around spots and qualified at least two athletes in each of the four individual rotations.
Unlike its northern foe, Antigo is senior-less, making its advancement even a bit more impressive.
“We do not have the big skills so they had to make what they had work. That meant working on their consistency and form and making sure they met the standards,” said Langseth, who is aided in the c

The Robins boys basketball team kept things close on Senior Night at the Antigo Middle School, but found a way to impress with a Great Northern Conference win over Medford 49-42 on Thursday.
“It was a good Senior Night,” Coach Jesse Shaw said. “I am proud to give these six seniors their last home win. I’ve enjoyed coaching these young men. They’re all great kids with great parents.”
Antigo fans had the opportunity to say good-bye to Jack Lund, Cameron Noskowiak, Joe Wittmann, John Monk, Luke Osborne and Michael Bradley on final time.
The Robins kept a narrow lead at the half 22-18, but were down at the beginning 10-9. Long balls from Noskowiak, Lund, and Matt Arndt helped Antigo stay in the first half.
Both teams strung together 11 points in the third quarter. Two outside shots from Arndt, his notable sweet spot, allowed the Robins to take a marginal 33-29
