The Lady Robins have now won nine straight games and are 18-2 overall.

Sixty years of chartered Antigo Little League Baseball (1957 to 2017) will be celebrated on Saturday, as organizers, coaches, players, parents and many community members will gather at Al Remington Field, the former Little League Park for the annual opening ceremony, scheduled for 11 a.m.

The ninth team will be part of a five team minors division, which encompasses ages 8 to 10. Ages 11 to 12 make up the majors division, which again has four teams.

After a short introduction from League V.P. and master of ceremonies Scott Walbeck, all of the players will be introduced by their individual coaches, followed by a number of guests.

Don Emley of the Langlade County Voiture 1204 and the 40 et 8 will talk about their organization and the history behind the Box Cars team name, and fellow 40 et 8 member LaVerne Yonkee will give the invocation. Mayor Bill Brandt will be on hand to help a handful of minors players recite the Little League pledge.

Antigo girls soccer team loses to Newman, hosts Lakeland tonight
space
Although coming out strong, the Antigo High School girls soccer team fell prey to a strong Wausau Newman squad Monday and lost at Listle Field, 9-0.

In the first of its seven games this week, coach Bethany Bauknecht noted that her squad knew what they had to do, having played the Cardinals last week, and did so. Newman beat Antigo 6-0 last Tuesday.

We were able to start the game with a strong offense and dominated the first 10 minutes of the game, she said, We got the first shot on goal.

The quick start faded quickly, attributed by the coach to poor communication, and Newman opened scoring at 13:16. The Lady Robins responded, challenging Newman well and drawing them offside to avert a couple of Cardinal scoring chances.

Newman made the score 2-0 in the 30th minute of the game on a goal initially wiped away by an official but then over-ruled.

The coach noted that the call seemed to unsettle her team, and Newman scored twice more before halftime to make the score 4-0.

Suffering from communication breakdowns, Antigo began the second half slowly and the Cardinals pushed ahead by 5-0 in the 48th minute. Ten minutes later, Newman scored aga
