Kewaunee @ Sturgeon Bay
May 18, 2021

Coach Benesh and Coach Bortolini did a great job leading their teams during both games of a doubleheader. They were encouraging and teaching their student athletes through both games of the doubleheader. I would like to recognize Liz and Jenna Rohr from Kewaunee for leading their team. Both athletes reminded me of their grandmother, Shelly, who I worked with for many years in healthcare. Both girls demonstrated kindness and greatfulness during the game much like their grandmother did at work. Nice to see positive qualities being passed down through generations in Kewaunee.

Martin Luther @ Catholic Central
May 14, 2021

This was a well played game with multiple lead changes that went 10 innings. There were nothing but positive comments by both teams and coaches. Earlier in the game, Catholic Central was reduced to eight players due to injuries. In the bottom of the 10th inning with a one run lead and two outs, Martin Luther Coach Rodriguez intentionally chose to pitch to the Catholic Central batter, even though they could have chose to walk the batter and take the automatic out for Catholic Central only having eight players. Coach Rodriguez let the girls decide the outcome of the game and did not allow them to be punished for having bad luck in injuries. Before the game we were given snacks and water by Coach Kirst from Catholic Central and thanked by his players for our work.

Gibraltar @ Crivitz
May 15, 2021

The two schools played a doubleheader and both teams played hard and had fun! The coaches from both teams continued to coach and encourage the players throughout the game. I would like to recognize the catchers for both teams #12 for Gibraltar and # 10 for Crivitz. Number 10 for Crivitz came up and hit a home run. Number 12 from Gibraltar was laughing with her after and congratulated her when she reached home plate. Good job girls and coaches!

Hortonville @ Kimberly
May 14, 2021

The communities of Hortonville and Kimberly should be extremely proud of their softball programs. Coaches Pethke and Hermus both were outstanding in leading their teams throughout the entire contest. The game lasted 13 innings and both coaches kept positive encouragement and teaching the student athletes for this three and half hour game. Playing softball and having fun while respecting opponents. I would like to recognize several players for their hard work and leadership. Way to go Coaches and athletes! Hortonville numbers 4, 5, and 6. Kimberly numbers 4, 12, and 22.
