In addition to our coverage of Kewaunee’s walk off win against Gibraltar in game one of their doubleheader, there was plenty of other baseball action around Door and Kewaunee County on Thursday. Casey Nelson and Max Pangea each registered a pair of hits, but it was not enough as Algoma was doubled up by NEW Lutheran 10-5. Southern Door was stymied by Oconto’s Bennett Fraser’s 11 strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings in an 8-1 defeat. Sturgeon Bay lost on a walk-off hit in Peshtigo as they fell to the Bulldogs 5-4.
In track, Sturgeon Bay scored 148 points in the 12-team field to win the Oconto Falls Invite Thursday. DJ Lenius won three individual titles while Brady Wodack and two relay teams won gold. Spencer Kirsteatter won the mile and two mile races for Kewaunee while Max Schoening captured gold in shotput for Algoma, helping lead their teams to third and fifth place finishes respectively.
