Nemetz Leads Marines NEC All-Conference Selections

Issue Date: July 22, 2021

Six Marinette Marines made all-conference softball teams following the Marines' run to the state tournament, including NEC player of the year Sydney Nemetz.

Nemetz was the NEC player of the year mostly for her pitching, as she struck out 170 hitters in conference play, posting a 9-4 record with a 1.19 ERA.

â€Syd really shined when the playoffs started, got four wins and led us to our school's first state tournament,†Marinette coach Scott Macintyre said. â€Syd pitched all the games in the playoffs and racked up 46 more strikeouts during the playoffs.â€

Her work at the plate isn't to be scoffed at either, as Nemetz batted cleanup for the Marines and hit .450.

The other Marinette representative on the first team was the power bat of senior catcher Matti Renikow.

Renikow hit 10 home runs with a .425 average.

â€Matti always came up big in big games,†Macintyre said, referencing her walkoff home run against Denmark in the 10th inning and a tying home run in the 11th inning against Freedom, a game Marinette won in the 12th inning.

Macintyre also said that Renikow played the year injured, â€but if you watched her, you won't believe the injury she had,†he said. â€Matti was a wall behind the plate, an unbelievable bat in the lineup.â€

Marinette also had three second-team players, with shortstop Maya Carviou, outfielder Hanna Ebsch and pitcher Bailie Thielen all making the second team.

Carviou hit .390 and was a flexible fielder and bat for the Marines, shifting from the two-spot in the lineup to the leadoff position for the playoffs, and moving from her more comfortable outfield position to shortstop, where she was named a second-teamer, Macintyre said.

â€Maya is an unbelievable athlete that could play any position for you. Her comfortable spot is in the outfield, but she is also a young lady that will play anywhere to help the team win,†he said. â€Maya made some great plays over the year that I will never forget.â€

Ebsch was a second-team outfielder, hitting .295 on the year. Her most memorable moment was a three-run home run that sent the Marines to the state tournament in the sectional final, but she also had a go-ahead home run against Green Bay Preble and a walkoff hit against Freedom in the 12th inning on her resume.

â€Hanna has a knack for big game excitement,†Macintyre said. â€Hanna is a great center fielder, great leader. She anchored our outfield for us since she was a freshman. She has an unbelievable arm and reads the ball so well off the bat.â€

Thielen had a 5-0 record with 26 strikeouts and a 0.61 ERA, as she gave up two runs in five games. When she wasn't pitching, she played first and ended the year with a .300 batting average.

â€As a coach you don't get this lucky, to have the best two pitchers in the conference,†Macintyre said. â€Bailie has such a great attitude approaching the season. Her biggest goal is to win, and if that was splitting time on the mound, so be it.â€

Wynn Erdman was an NEC honorable mention in the outfield. She started the year on JV, but COVID forced her call up to varsity, and she seized the opportunity, batting .400 with a couple of home runs, including one in regionals against Freedom.

â€Her impact with the team was immediate. She came up with big hit after big hit, played great defense and never showed the game was too fast for her,†Macintyre said.

Oconto Falls' Alexis Euclide was a first-team outfielder. Teammate Jameson Engel earned an honorable mention as a designated player. Both were juniors in 2021.

Euclide hit .435 in 21 total games this year, ending the season on a seven-game hit streak, of which four were multi-hit games. She had 15 runs scored and 14 RBIs.

â€Alexis Euclide is a strong center fielder with her speed and skills,†Oconto Falls coach Jen Thompson said. â€At bat, she is a dynamic batter with impressive baserunning skills.â€

Engel hit .317 in 21 games, with 11 RBIs and 7 runs scored. She had a home run against Oconto on June 14.

â€Jamesen has quick hands and a strong bat for our team,†Thompson said. â€She is an essential piece to our batting lineup.â€

Marinette's Braeden McMahon was a second team catcher on the NEC baseball team, while teammates Asaia Polazzo and Carson Erdman were honorable mentions.

McMahon was an on-base machine, batting .275 with a .456 on-base percentage due to 11 walks and three hit-by-pitches. Over the final 10 games of the season, he hit over .400. He was selected as the Marinette team MVP for both his work at the dish and behind it.

â€Braeden excelled defensively,†Marinette coach Mike Maedke said, noting that McMahon allowed just one passed ball this season. â€By far the best catcher in the conference at receiving and framing.â€

McMahon will play baseball at St. Norbert College next year.

Polazzo, a senior, had a .400 on-base percentage and .268 batting average. Additionally, he made just two errors playing the shortstop position. He also had a couple of good moments on the mound, including pitching a complete game shutout over Waupaca.

Erdman pitched 26.2 innings this season, posting a 2.89 ERA and walking just four hitters. He finished with a 2-3 record.

â€Carson threw the ball well this year. He kept us in each game he pitched,†Maedke said, specifically mentioning a 7-inning, 3-run, 7-strikeout game against Seymour in

regionals, a game Marinette lost in extra innings.

â€Carson has an opportunity to be one of the more dominant pitchers in our conference next year,†Maedke said.

Oconto Falls had senior pitcher Tucker Bouche and sophomore utility player Braden Vandermoss made the second team.

The NEC baseball players of the year were Fox Valley Lutheran pitcher Parker Knoll and Denmark pitcher Brennen Miller.

In girls soccer, Marinette senior Alison Hulce was a second-team all-conference selection, scoring nine goals on the year.

â€A true scoring forward,†Marinette coach Chris Mahlik said.

Casey Jensen, a Marinette junior, and sophomore Koressa Allgeyer were honorable mentions.

â€Casey had a great year and kept us in a lot of games at goalie,†Mahlik said.

On Allgeyer, Mahlik said she usually marked the other team's best player, playing as a defensive midfielder and sweeper.

Wrightstown's Kyla Dewick was the defensive player of the year in the NEC and Fox Valley Lutheran's Emily Dobberpuhl was the offensive player of the year.
