Seniors earn praise as Antigo swim team takes on Lakeland
The meet ultimately failed to qualify as a victory but there was no lack of effort by the Antigo High School girls swim team in its final dual meet of the regular season Thursday.
Playing host to Lakeland, the Robins won four events and took third in five others on a night dedicated to the athletes’ parents and seniors Emily Fisher, Taylor Pomasl and Molly Ponasik.
The Thunderbirds took the team title 110-60.
“Despite the score, this really was a great meet for the girls,” coach Mary Ponasik said.
In the first varsity swim of the night, Antigo was dominant in the 200 meter medley relay as the four women crew of Kate Stensberg, Grace Tews, Murron Roff and Molly Ponasik touched the wall first with a time of 2:18.99. Lakeland’s contingent came in second at 2:23.76.
“I was hoping the girls would just stay with Lakeland but they posted their best time yet and won the event by almost five seconds,” Ponasik praised.
The excitement continued in the next three events with Roff, Stensberg and Ponasik each swimming personal best times — Roff in the 200 free (2:20.67 for second); Stensberg in the 200 IM (2:39.19 for first); and Ponasik in the 50
John Van Ooyen rolls 713 honor count
A pair of 257 games helped send John Van Ooyen over the top Thursday as he finished as the night’s top bowler at North Star Lanes.
Competing in the Dirty Dozen league, Van Ooyen used the scores to sandwich a 199 single. Combined, they gave him a 713 series — his second honor roll of the season. He previously hit a 707 triple earlier this month.
Rod Schedlbauer led a list of 12 bowlers who finished in 600 series range. Stringing together games of 234, 222 and 234, he chalked a 690 series.
Chris Orgeman was third in line at 673. Although starting off a bit slow at 162, he rebounded strongly to finish with a 255 and a 256.
Bill McFarlane had the night’s top game at 279. The mark highlighted a 657 series.
Other evening frontrunners were Bill Page, 653 (234); Greg Pizl Sr., 649 (251); Jack Filbrandt, 645 (227); Lyle Tackett, 633 (252); Paul Bula, 633 (233); Steve Burkhart, 624 (235); Steve McFarlane, 610 (225); Mark Marshall, 604 (212); Kirk Elliott, 601 (237).
Another eight bowlers posted at least one game 210 or better. Included were Eugene Peters, 246; Steve Suick, 245; Rick Fermanich, 220; Jeff Wright, 215; Tim Baker, 214; Dennis Seis
Level One playoffs begin Friday, Robins travel to La Crosse Logan
Antigo’s 24-14 loss to Mondovi last Friday evening came as both a shock to fans and a head scratcher for the playoff seeding committee. As the No. 8 seed, the Robins will now have to travel to La Crosse to take on the No. 1 slotted Logan High School Rangers this Friday. For a team that had dominated the latter half of its 2014 schedule, Antigo will now have an uphill battle in its postseason after its loss to a Division 5 school.
“Our game (last) Friday affected our seeding, but we’ve had a chip on our shoulder all season so it’s nothing new for us. We are the underdogs with everything to gain. We need to play our best game Friday night and prove that (the Mondovi game) was a fluke,” Coach Matt Weberpal said.
The Robins (ending its regular season 4-5 overall, 4-2 in conference) entered last week having steamrolled through Great Northern Conference opponents Lakeland, Rhinelander, and Medford. In last Friday’s debacle, Antigo still managed to put up 345 yards of total offense (with 321 yards of that rushing) with only 14 points to show. Mental mistakes and turnovers bogged down the Robins’ offense, as four out of seven total fumbles found their way back into Mondovi’
Antigo spikers knock off Medford to keep season alive
The Antigo High School volleyball team got its revenge Tuesday — and it came with good timing.
In its second meeting with Medford in less than a week, the Lady Robins carded results opposite that of its sketchy performance in Saturday’s Great Northern Conference tournament. In that one, the Raiders won 3-0. In this one — the first round of the WIAA regional playoffs — Antigo got the edge and kept it, winning 3-1.
“The girls came out hard every game and played well together,” Coach Michelle Knetter said. “They really stepped up their game tonight and gave it their all.”
Played on the Sheldon Fieldhouse court, the match started out in Medford’s favor as the Raiders won 25-22.
Antigo won the second on a comfortable 25-12 margin, took the third 25-21 and slipped by in the fourth, 25-23, to take the match.
“The games we won we dominated early in the game,” Knetter said. “Once we got a big lead we got a little comfortable and let them back in some.
“In the first, third, and fourth game. we had a lead and then ended the game tighter than we would have liked,” she added. “However, we were able to pull out the win.”
