The Kewaunee Storm was able to hold off their northern rivals 26-21 in the War on the Shore against the Algoma Wolves. After Jordan Deringer opened the scoring for Algoma with a pick-six, Kewaunee scored three straight touchdowns, including a 74 yard score through the air to knot the game up in the first quarter. Max Panger would add two touchdowns for the Wolves on the ground but it would not be enough to keep down the Storm.

In the small school division, Lydiah LeCloux ran a 20:54 5K to give her the bronze individually and Southern Door 4th place.

On the boys’ side, Sevastopol’s Kyle Carlson was the top local finisher with a ninth place, 17:48 effort while Southern Door’s Sam Dean came in 13th with an 18:04.
