Coleman Improves To 6-0

The winning ways continue for time defending champion Coleman.

Thanks to a rare 4-win week on the M-O Conference ball diamonds, the Cougars ran their league readout to 6-0 after beating Wausaukee 9-4, earning a forfeit over Lena-STAA and sweeping Gillett in Monday doubleheader 11-0 and 15-5.

Coleman currently owns a 1 1/2 game lead over second place Wausaukee (4-1). Coming off that tough loss to Coleman, the Rangers rebounded with a doubleheader rout of Lena-STAA 12-0 and 17-0.

Peshtigo (3-2) won 2 of three games, besting Gillett 11-2 and edging Crivitz 4-2 in 10 innings during the first game of a twinbill while losing the second game 3-0.

League play resumes Thursday with Coleman entertaining Crivitz, Wausaukee visiting Gillett and Peshtigo heading to Lena-STAA. The battle for second place will be held when Wausaukee visits Peshtigo Monday.

-Thursday’s Results-

Seewald, Coleman

Top Wausaukee 9-4


Getting the pitching nod minutes prior to the start of the game, righthander Trevor Seewald hurled 5 innings and slugged a two-run homer to lead Coleman to a 9-4 win over visiting Wausaukee.

Derek Marquardt was scheduled to be the starting pitcher for Coleman, but couldn’t get loose warming up so coach Kent Casper went with Seewald. And he didn’t disappoint them. Seewald gave up 9 hits and 4 runs over 5 innings before giving way to reliever Mason Mergener for the final two frames.

We told Trevor just a couple of minutes before the game he would be starting and he gave us a great effort, Casper said. We also got some timely hitting and played good defense. Our younger players are gaining some confidence and starting to come through.

Wausaukee gave the host Cougars plenty to think about in the opening inning scoring 3 runs on 4 hits. Eddie Self singled to start things while Beau DeLaet and losing pitcher Cole Lewandowski doubled. After strikeouts by Aaron Schlies and Dillon Meyers, Brennan Gabriel came up with a two-out, two-run single.

Down 3-0 didn’t bother the Cougars. Instead they pushed across 4 runs to take the lead. Seewald drew a leadoff walk, Marquardt lashed a RBI single and Mason Mergener walked. With one out, freshman Blake Margis ripped a single before walks to Dexter Karban and Alex Stodola along with number nine hitter Nick Sailer getting beaned forced in the runs.

Wausaukee got even in the third inning as Schlies and Meyers punched out back-to-back singles. Gabriel added a run scoring grounder for a 4-4 deadlock.

The Cougars regained the upper hand in the fourth with 4 runs on two hits. Sailer walked to start things then jogged home as Seewald unloaded a two-run homer to left. Marquardt walked, stole second and raced home on a RBI double by Blake Margis while Karban added a run scoring single.

Coleman’s final run came in the sixth as Sailer singled with one out and scored on a single off the bat of Marquardt.

Berth Baffles Gillett

With 15 K’s, One Hit


Putting on a dominating pitching performance, Peshtigo righthander Jordan Berth registered 15 strikeouts and allowed just one hit in an 11-2 rout of visiting Gillett. Berth fanned the side in the third, sixth and seventh innings while issuing 5 walks.

Jordan really pounded the strike zone. In the sixth inning he kind of lost his rhythm and was beginning to steer the ball. He worked out of it and finished strong, Peshtigo coach Pat Robbins said.

The Bulldog batters pounded a pair of Gillett hurlers for 12 hits, including two each by Andrew Majewski, Jake Veness, Derek Koronkiewicz and Marcus Sharkey.

Peshtigo scored 3 runs in the first inning, highlighted by a two-run double off the bat of Tom Quigley. In the third frame, Sharkey tripled with one out and scored on a ground out while in the fifth Trevor Bero got hit by a pitch and scored on a single off the bat of Matt Borkovec.

A dozen Bulldogs strolled to the plate in the sixth inning, resulting in 6 runs on 3 walks and 3 hits. Veness ripped a run scoring triple while Dakota Keller chipped in with a two-run single.

We had 4 guys with two hits and are getting better at the plate. We had some guys with better at bats then others, Robbins added.

The only Gillett hit came off the bat of Jeremy Cibulka in the second inning.

Crivitz Clobbers

Lena-STAA 20-1


In a conference mismatch, Crivitz banged out 12 hits and rode a nifty two-hitter from senior righthander Cody Wolf to a 20-1 rout of Lena-STAA. The Wolverines scored in every inning...2 in the first, 3 in the second, 5 in the third and 10 more runs in the fourth.

Wolf aided his own cause with 4 hits and 4 runs scored while AJ Garcia added 2 hits and 3 runs. Parker DeLosSantos crossed the plate 4 times and added a triple while Jake Sawinski, Colton Lange and Brad Shearer added two runs each.

Wolf finished with 8 strikeouts and no walks while giving up singles to losing pitcher Mitchell Harvey in the fourth and Austin Zorn in the fifth.



-Friday’s Results-

Wausaukee Whips

Wolverines 11-1


Banging 11 hits off a pair of Crivitz hurlers, host Wausaukee had no trouble cruising to a lopsided 11-1 win Friday. The Rangers jammed the plate for 6 runs in the opening inning and built up a 10-1 lead after three frames.

Wausaukee sent 10 batters to the plate in the opening inning with 6 collecting hits. Leadoff swinger Eddie Self lashed a double, DeLaet single and Lewandowski two-run single. The hits kept on coming as Schlies added a run scoring double before Orlando capped the wining with a two-run single.

A triple off the bat of Lewandowski followed by a double from Schlies upped the score to 8-0 in the second inning. Two more Rangers raced home in the third as Zach Struve walked, Smith singled while DeLaet lashed a two-run single.

What was scheduled to be a doubleheader Monday saw Peshtigo win the opener in 10 innings 4-2 before game two was called because of darkness with Crivitz in front 3-0. When the contest was resumed Tuesday, the Wolverines tacked on one more run to claim a 3-0 win.

Pitching dominated the opener as Peshtigo’s Jordan Berth recorded 15 strikeouts and 7 walks over 9 2/3 innings. He was nicked for two runs on 6 hits.

While Berth shutdown Crivitz, Cody Wolf fanned 14 Bulldogs and walked 7 in 9 innings of work.
