We won the first match against Phelps 25-5, 25-8, and JV match 15-7. Phelps won the second match against Winter in 3 sets 24-26 winter, 23-25 Phelps, and 15-5 Phelps. We won the match against Winter 25-17, 25-19, and JV match 15-10.
I was very proud of how the girls started their season tonight. We have a new setter this year, sophomore Bella Bourgard, and she did amazing in her first varsity start with many assists. I was very proud of how she held her composure to get the job done. She performed like a seasoned varsity setter.
Everyone came out to play tonight with excellent movement and communication. They played hard and scrappy and were strong both offensively and defensively. Senior Grace Wegner led the night with 19 kills followed by Junior Gwen McCorison with 8. Gwen also led the team with 18 digs followed by Sophomore Cassy Bortz with 16. Gwen led the team with 11 service aces followed by Cassy with 6.

B/M strands 2 runners in the top of the first with a single by Taylar Bortz and a walk to Grace Wegner. Drummond plates 2 in the bottom of the first thanks to a double, 2 singles and a fielder’s choice RBI. Emma Herbst singles after 1 out in the second and Jess Klopatek draws a walk but are left stranded again. Drummond scores 4 in the bottom of the frame thanks to a a couple defensive miscues and a big 3 run home run by Kelsie Wiezorek. After a 1-2-3 inning by both teams in the 3rd, B/M mounts a rally with Riannon Kolar reaching on an error and advancing on a fielder’s choice and reaching 3rd on a wild pitch. Emma Herbst grounds into a fielder’s choice to bring Kolar in to score. Drummond responds with 5 in the bottom of the 4th thanks to 5 hits and a walk to take an 11-1 lead. The Pioneers fight back in the top of the 5th with back to back singles by Cassy Bortz and Ava Barton but Bortz is cut down at 3rd on the play. After a pop out, back to back walks by Grace Wegner and Riannon Kolar load the bases but another pop out ends the threat and the season for the Pioneers. “Our girls played tough tonight. Give credit to Drummond as they hit the ball well tonight and as always are a very solid defensive team. They took away at least 2 hits from us and cut off the ball well in the gaps to hold us to singles instead of doubles. We had a lot of base runners all game but just couldn’t quite get the big hit when we needed it and that was really the only difference in the game. We say goodbye to Taylar Bortz and Katie Bourgard as Seniors and they will be tough to replace but we also have a very solid core of good young players and are looking forward next season already.” coach Wegner Butternut Mercer finishes the season 8-8 in conference play and 9-11 overall.Baseball5/21/19Chequamegon 5 Butternut/Mercer 3WP – Max BrunnerBaseball5/20/19Chequamegon 6 Tomahawk 1WP – lLec O’MearaLeading Hitters: Alec O’Meara 2 hits, Hunter Minnema 2 RBIButternut/Mercer 16 Three Lakes 6Butternut Mercer Pioneers scored early and then again late to break open a close game.

The Pioneers bounce back from a poor showing vs Mellen to earn a solid victory in game 1, 10-5. Cassy Bortz and Ava Barton lead off the contest with back to back doubles followed by a RBI single by Taylar Bortz. After a groundout and fielders choice to plate Barton, the Pioneers ripped off 3 straight singles by Katie Bourgard, Molly Hohner, and Jess Klopatek to score 2 more runs and give the Pioneers a quick 4-0 lead. Holding Ironwood scoreless in the bottom of the frame, Cassy Bortz again leads off and reaches on an error followed by another double by Barton scoring Bortz. Taylar Bortz singles followed by a 3 run home run by Grace Wegner to give the Pioneers a 8-0 lead. “The girls really came out hot tonight at the plate, squaring up on everything. Even our outs were hit hard”- coach Wegner. Ironwood gets on the board in the bottom of the 2nd cashing in a couple walks but another caught stealing by catcher Grace Wegner ends the rally. After a couple quick outs in the top of the 3rd Cassy Bortz singles, steals second, and scores on a sharp single by Ava Barton. Cassy Bortz shuts down the top of the order for Ironwood 123 in the bottom of the 3rd and Wegner promptly leads off the 4th with her 2nd home run of the game to put the Pioneers up 10-2. Ironwood rallies in the bottom of the 5th thanks to a couple miscues on defense but Bortz shuts the door with a punchout to end the game and earn the win. “This was easily our best all around game of the season and I am really proud of how the girls bounced back after a very disappointing game vs Mellen a couple days earlier. Dakota Gavin played a very nice left field for us with 3 put outs and Ava Barton continues to elevate her game both offensively and defensively with 5 put outs. Nice to have Grace back in the lineup after missing a couple games due to illness. Our 1 though 4 in the lineup tonight (Cassy, Ava, Taylar, and Grace) went a combined 11-15 with 9 runs scored, with 3 doubles and 2 home runs. The rest of the lineup wasn’t too shabby either collecting 4 hits and consistently putting the ball in play.”Game 2 of the double header saw the Ironwood Red Devils triumph with a 13-2 victory. After a scoreless 1st, the Pioneers ran into a bit of trouble in the 2nd inning giving up 9 runs to a very fired up Red Devil team. “They started to time Cassy up a bit and hit some balls pretty hard including a 3 run home run. Cassy pitched really strong up to that point keeping a pretty good hitting team in check”. B/M rallies in the bottom of the 3rd with a triple by Emma Herbst followed by an RBI single by Cassy Bortz. Bortz steals second and then scores on an RBI double by her older sister Taylar to cut the lead to 9-2.

Taylar advances to second on the throw to the plate but is left stranded there to end the game. Final score 10-9 Rib Lake over Butternut Mercer. “The girls played exceptionally well tonight. We were without 2 of our best hitters tonight and these girls stepped up and filled in admirably. We had baserunners all game long with 14 hits and 5 walks. Up and down the lineup, they were constantly putting the ball in play. On defense we only committed 3 errors but those few errors proved too costly as they lead to 8 unearned runs in the game. I still have to remind myself just how young we are in the field as last night we had a total of 6 girls on defense in their first year in the program and 2 others only in their 2nd year. I feel we are starting to play our best ball going into the end of the season”- Coach Wegner.Baseball5/11/19Edgar 2 Pittsville 1Merrill 12 Ashland 8Auburndale 2 Northland Pines 0Butternut/Mercer 9 Hurley 6Ashland 15 Lakeland 13Medford 6 Adams/Friendship 3Auburndale 6 Wittenberg/Birnamwood 5Chequamegon 7 Lakeland 5WP – Alec O’MearaLeading Hitter – Blake Richard 2 hitsMedford 9 Milwaukee King 3Softball5/11/19Wausau East 15 Lakeland 1Gilman 12 Marathon 9Antigo/White Lake 18 Ashland 0Auburndale 11 Necedah 2Grantsburg 9 Marathon 8Hurley 5 Grantsburg 4GLenwood City 4 Stratford 1Athens 15 Shell Lake 9Amherst 15 Auburnadale 5Mwdfor 7 pacelli 5Flambeau 8 Drummond 6Gilman 9 Hurley 2Spencer 3 Stratford 2AMherst 11 Abbotsford/Colby 2Drummond 9 Flambeau 5Grantsburg 14 Athens 4Medford 15 Chequamegon 1Baseball5/10/19Butternut/Mercer 11 Solons Springs 1Medford 9 Tomahawk 1Medford 10 Tomahawk 0Hurley 22 Bayfield 8PHillips 4 Abbotsford/Colby 3Marathon 9 Assumption 0Edgar 10 Newman 4Stratford 13 Auburndale 2Softball5/10/19Chequamegon 12 Phillips 6Marathon 24 Edgar 2Athens 8 Rib Lake 7Auburndale 6 Newman 5Athens 10 Prentice 0Lakeland 9 Medford 7Ashland 11 South Shore 1Hurley 22 Bayfield 0Drummond 9 Mellen 0Solon Springs 6 Butternut/Mercer 1Mosinee 6 Tomahawk 5Softball5/7/19Chequamegon 14 Prentice 5WP – Eva Pasewald 9K’sLeading Hitters: Miranda Dane 4-4, Jose Orr 3-4, Brookly Hanson 3-4Drummond 15 Bayfield 0Athens 7 Rib Lake 4Auburndale 7 Stratford 2Mosinee 17 Northland Pines 0Tomahawk 11 Phillips 5Drummond 24 Bayfield 7Antigo 11 Lakeland 1Antigo 12 Lakeland 3Butternut/Mercer 27 Mellen 16Tuesday night Butternut Mercer traveled to Mellen for an Indianhead Conference matchup.

We were a little too anxious at the plate, not waiting for a good pitch to drive. They corrected that and started to really drive the ball well late in the game. Cassy fought through some control issues and some defensive letdowns and kept her poise well to earn the victory tonight”- Coach Wegner.Baseball5/7/19Chequamegon 14 Prentice 2Strarford 7 Auburndale 0Edgar 9 Newman Catholic 6Butternut/Mercer def.

Game 1 saw the pioneers pound out 14 hits and take 7 walks en route to a 19-2 victory in 4 innings. Grace Wegner lead the hitting attack going 3 for 4 with 4 RBI and a Home Run. 3 Hits and 4 runs scored for Cassy Bortz and 2 hits a piece for Taylar Bortz and Katie Bourgard. Riannon Kolar with 3 RBI. The Pioneers also ran wild on the base paths collecting 10 stolen bases. Cassy Bortz notched the victory going 4 innings giving up only 2 runs (1 earned), scattering 5 hits, 1 walk with 4 strikeouts. “Solid team effort. We hit the ball well up and down the lineup and played very good defense with only 1 throwing error. The girls are really starting to understand their defensive responsibilities and anticipate potential plays. We are still a very young team with only 2 Seniors and 1 Junior in the lineup tonight but you would never know it by watching the girls play. Cassy once again pitching very efficiently and pounding the strike zone ”- Coach Wegner.Game 2 of the double header proved to be a battle as South Shore jumped out to a quick 5-0 lead in the top of the first inning with 2 hits, 3 walks and 1 hit batter. “Taylar Bortz was a little rusty as this was her first mound action of the season due to injury” The Pioneers responded with 2 in the bottom of the inning scoring, capitalizing on a walk by Taylar Bortz, Riannon Kolar reaching on an error, Bortz and Kolar advancing on past balls with Bortz scoring on another past ball followed by a RBI single by Katie Bourgard scoring Kolar. Taylar Bortz then got locked in on the mound only giving up 1 hit in the next 4 innings to shut down the Cardinal offense. “Taylar really rebounded nicely from a tough first inning and pitched well and our defense stepped up and make some really nice plays in the infield with Riannon Kolar and Molly Hohner making some nice catches in the outfield.” Butternut Mercer scratched out a couple runs in the 2nd inning including an RBI by Grace Wegner and then another run in the 3rd on a past ball with Ava Barton scoring. “This is Ava’s first year playing as a Sophomore and she is quickly becoming an contributor. She has good base running instincts and reached all 7 plate appearances tonight” Tied 5-5 in the bottom of the 4th, Taylar Bortz grounded, Cassy Bortz walked and then things got a little crazy. Bortz steals 2nd and then advances on a wild pitch with Grace Wegner at the plate. Wegner receives ball 4 on a wild pitch and promptly advances to 2nd base drawing a throw to allow Bortz to score the go ahead run. The throw to the plate gets by the catcher and Wegner never stops running rounding 3rd and scoring an insurance run putting the Pioneers up 7-5. The defense put the clamps on the Cardinals in the top of the 5th to secure the win. “We really struggled at the plate in the second game with only being able to manage 2 hits. We put the ball in play but were hitting it right as someone. I give South Shore a lot of credit. They played really sound defense up until the very end. I was proud of how our girls kept battling through the frustration and finding a way to score by taking advantage of walks and smart base running.”Baseball4/25/19Chequamegon 10 Abbotsford/Colby 7WP – Alec O’Meara 8ip 8K’sHitting: Hunter Minnema and Chase Kronberger 2 hits eachAshland 8 Proctor, MN 3Edgar 13 Assumption 2Stratford 11 Marathon 5Mosinee 5 Medford 1Lakeland 3 Tomahawk 2Lakeland 11 Tomahawk 1Butternut/Mercer 1 Washburn 0Butternut/Mercer 13 Washburn 3In a game 1 pitcher’s duel, Seth Scherwinski outlasted Adams from Washburn as the Pioneers scored an unearned run in the top of the 7th for a 1-0 victory.

After a 3 up 3 down inning by Washburn, Butternut/Mercer pushed 3 runs across with key hits by Taylor Weinberger and Taylor Bortz. Washburn responded with 4 runs in the top of the 3rd inning thanks in part to 4 errors. “We got a little sloppy defensively for a bit, shifting girls around and bringing in some of the more inexperienced players to give them some opportunities. They worked through it and the experience will pay big dividends down the road” Down 5-3 in the bottom the the 3rd inning, the Pioneers exploded for 11 runs. Grace Wegner lead off with a home run and “opened the flood gates” Katie Bourgard walked, Riannon Kolar followed with a single, Dakota Gavin reached on an error, scoring Bourgard.

A single by Kolar, followed by back to back walks to Gavin and Hohner plate another run. With bases loaded, Taylar Weinberger singles to collect 2 RBI’s to finish the scoring. “We just game out a little flat in game 2 both offensively and defensively, but after a little pep talk, the girls really responded well. They didn’t sulk at all and I could see they had the confidence to know they were going to turn it around. The bats came alive and we only allowed 2 base runners the final 2 innings”. Wegner lead the way going 3-4 with 2 RBI. 2 hits a piece for Taylar Bortz, Riannon Kolar, and Taylar Weinberger. Cassy Bortz went the distance on the mound to pick up the victory only allowing 5 unearned runs on 5 hits, 1 walk with 6 strikeouts. “Cassy really pitched will tonight and I am proud of her poise on the mound as a Freshman.

We lost the 1st set 28-26. We gave up the lead late in the set with too many unforced errors. I’ll say this about these girls: I’ve never seen a team that can re-focus when needed. We won set 2 and 3 25-20, 25-18 and seemed poised to win in bold fashion. Then, we started the 4th set. I finally called a time-out down 7-1. Down 11-2, we got the ball back again, and really started to play. We won the set 25-22. If you’ve watched enough volleyball, a come back in that fashion against a good team just doesn’t happen. Sophomore Olivia Burcaw led the offense with 21 kills and only 1 hitting error. She had 7 in a row down the stretch in the 4th set. Amazing. She certainly carried our team Saturday night. Senior Chelby Hartman had 30 assists for the match. Senior Jordan Hora led the defense with 5 blocks, and Junior Kaelyn Isaacson had 19 digs. She was amazing on the floor.Cross Country10/20/18High School Girls Volleyball10/18/18

“It was a tough end to our season tonight but credit to Birchwood for playing tough. There was a lot of energy in their gym which rattled the girls in the beginning but then they settled down and started playing like they could. Birchwood was too much offensively for us and we never got our own offensive going. I am so proud of how hard the team worked this season. We were successful because of their effort and team work.”
Grace Wegner led the team with 5 kills followed by Gwen McCorison with 4.

“Credit to Washburn. They are #1 in the conference and Regional seeding for a reason. I was very proud of how my girls played the first two sets against them. They worked hard and played as a team who wanted to win. Set three we struggled defensively and in serve receiving and couldn’t put anything together offensively.

Heizler makes podium again, Michek shoots first 25 straight at State SCTP Trap Championship.
Members of the S.E.a.L. Shooting Team traveled to the Wisconsin Trapshooter’s Association complex near Wisconsin Rapids on June 24 to compete in the Scholastic Clay Target Program State Trap Championships. Approximately 1500 scholastic athletes from across the state participated in the annual event, making the Wisconsin Shoot the second largest state SCTP competition in the nation.
Team S.E.a.L was led on day by Intermediate Advanced shooter Delton Heizler, who finished in 3rd place in his division with a 96/100. 2018 marks the third year in a row Heizler has made the podium at the State Championships. “Delton’s consistency is truly amazing” said Coach Nesbit of Heizler’s achievement. “Nothing rattles him. Sometimes I wonder if we should check his pulse. Making the podium three years in a row is quite an accomplishment and something he should be extremely proud of.”
More Team S.E.a.L. shooters scored 90 or better at this year’s State Shoot than any other and included Heizler’s 96, Tyler Hlavacek’s 94, Jake Fusak’s 93, and Sam Nesbit’s 90.
While Heizler’s podium finish was certainly noteworthy, the individual highlight of the event may have occurred when one of the team’s youngest shooters, Ethan Michek, recorded his first 25 straight ever at the State Shoot. Coach Nesbit said “We were all holding our breath watching Ethan shoot those last five targets. He’s such a great kid and a real credit to the team and the shooting sports. He epitomizes everything that our team and the SCTP stands for. I couldn’t be more happy for him!” Other Team S.E.a.L. shooters recording perfect rounds of 25 on the day included Jake Fusak, Delton Heizler, and Dayne Marlenga.
Team SEaL will wrap up the season July 14-21 at the SCTP National Championships, held at the Cardinal Shooting Center near Margeno, Ohio.

BMC gets the leadoff batter on board with a walk, followed by a fielders choice. With one on and one out, Nina Kelto bloops a base hit into right field.

We had 8 out of the 14 girls as first year players. They had to learn a lot in a very short amount of time with the compressed season with some of them really starting to excel late in the season. We will be returning 7 of the 9 starters with some good talent coming up, so we should be right in the thick of things next year.”High School GolfRegionals @ BirchwoodChequamegon places 2nd to advance to SectionalsSee Results HEREHigh School Baseball5/222/18Chequamegon 11 Edgar 1High School BaseballChequamegon 17 Ironwood, MI 1Box Score R H EChequamegon 17 15 2Ironwood, MI 1 6 5High School Baseball5/19/18Butternut Mercer Pioneers went 1-1 in the Washburn tournament on Saturday.

This was our last home game and our Dig Pink event so there was a lot of energy in the gym and the girls came out to play. I was very pleased with the attacking and net play.

I was very proud of how the girls came out to play tonight. A lot of time was spent this week discussing the meaning of a team and the need to play like one in order to be successful. This was probably one of their best matches in moving and communication. As a result we were able to stay aggressive and put pressure on Mercer.

I knew going into tonight that this was going to be a tough match for my young team. The competition was great – Chequamegon played well. We struggled with blocking and covering their attacks. As a result we never were consistent in playing our game and being aggressive at the net. Communication was also an issue tonight. We were able to put a few good attacks together but not enough to stay competitive. The girls did great at the service line serving 97.5%.
Junior Taylar Bortz and Freshman Riannon Kolar led the team with 2 service aces. Sophomore Grace Wegner led the team with 10 digs and 4 kills.

The girls came out to play tonight. Communication and movement were on and they really played well as a team. This was the scrappiest I’ve ever seen them play.

We struggled with illness and came out slow but then by the second set they were playing better as a team. We knew Drummond was going to be tough and we did some great things against them and had some great attacks but we weren’t as consistent as I would have liked. This team never gave up and fought right till the end. I was very proud of them.
Sophomore Grace Wegner led the team with 3 kills. Freshman Gwen McCorison with 15 digs, and Freshman Chaselyn Currier with 3 service aces.
It was a hard fought match tonight and I’m very proud of how the girls worked together as a team to pull out the win.

Sophomore Grace Wegner led the team with 4 kills and Freshman Gwen McCorison led with 3 service aces. Setters Junior Taylar Bortz and Senior Gabby McCorison had a good night of setting. At times we struggled with serve receiving and they were consistent with getting the ball to our hitters for an attack.
Middle School Football
We struggled tonight coming off the long holiday weekend. Communication and movement were poor. They seemed to have forgotten how to play their game. They ended the match cleaner than they started. We do not have a JV team this year so I was able to get some of the JV players into the game and they did great.
Sophomore Grace Wegner led the night with 7 kills followed by Senior Gabby McCorison and Freshman Gwen McCorison with 5 kills each. Junior Taylar Bortz and Grace Wegner led the team with 4 service aces each. Gwen McCorison led the team with 16 digs.
