(From Coach Kim Bortz)
We hosted a triangular volleyball tournament tonight with Phelps and Winter. 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.
I’m excited to see what this team is going to accomplish this year. If they continue to play like they did tonight they will be very competitive.

Leading Hitters:  Chase Kronberger and Alec O’Meara 2 hits each
The number 5 seed Butternut Mercer Pioneers softball team traveled to #4 Drummond in the second round of Regional action on Tuesday night and fell short 11-1 to the Lumberjills.  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.

    5/16/19 the team traveled to Ironwood for a twin bill conference matchup.  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.  Ironwood tacks on a run in the 4th and 3 more in the 5th for a final score of 13-2.
    Butternut Mercer finishes up the regular season 8-8 in conference play and 9-10 overall.  “Very proud of how this team has battled this season and how some of the girls elevated their game.  We say goodbye to our seniors, Taylar Bortz, Katie Bourgard, and Taylor Weinberger, but the team is in very good hands with the core of returning players and incoming Freshman.  We opened a few eyes in the conference and will look to continue to build this program and fully expect to be one of the top teams in the conference next season.”  B/M travels to Drummond for the second round of Regional play on Tuesday 5/21 at 5:00

The Lady Pioneers of Butternut Mercer lost a nail bitter at Rib Lake on Monday night 10-9.  After a scoreless first, Rib Lake pushes across a couple runs in the bottom of the 2nd on a hit, an error and an walk followed by a past ball and fielder’s choice.  B/M responds in the top of the 3rd with an RBI single by Taylar Bortz scoring Bella Bourgard who walked to start off the inning.  Rib Lake plates 3 in the bottom of the 3rd to grab a short lived 5-1 advantage as the Pioneer bats come to life in the top of the 4th with 5 hits and 2 walks highlighted by a 3 run home run by Katie Bourgard.  Taylar Bortz with a 2 RBI single and RBI single by Ava Barton cap off a 7 run inning to give the Pioneers a 8-5 lead.  Taylar Bortz preserves the lead on the bottom of the 4th with a clean inning on the mound.  B/M strands runners at the corners after 2 out in the top of the 5th and Rib Lake pushes across a run in the bottom of the frame after 2 out thanks to a double and back to back singles to cut the lead to 8-6 after 5 innings of play.  B/M threatens in the top of the 6th once again with singles by Emma Herbst and Jess Klopatek.  Bella Bourgard singles to right but Herbst in thrown out at the plate to end the inning.  Rib Lake grabs 4 runs in the bottom of the 6th to take a 10-8 lead.  “Taylar pitched great tonight but they finally started to square up on her late and string together some hits”- Coach Wegner  Cassy Bortz leads off the 7th with a single, steals second and scores on an RBI single by Taylar Bortz.  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.

    The Butternut Mercer Pioneers girls softball team traveled to South Shore on Friday 4/26 and took a pair of games from the Cardinals.  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.”

Thursday 4/15 the Lady Pioneers traveled to Washburn for a double header and came away with 2 wins- 18-2 and 14-5.  Game 1 saw Butternut Mercer jump out to a quick 9-0 lead in the 1st inning with the help of 4 hits, 3 walks and 4 Washburn errors.  “The girls game out fired up and it showed with good swings, patience and the plate and aggressive base running”  the Pioneers tacked on  5 more runs in the 2nd and 4 in the 3rd to complete the scoring.  Grace Wegner got the win pitching 3 innings of no hit ball only giving up 3 walks and 1 hit batter with 4 punch outs.  Offensively, the Pioneers pounded out 10 hits and 6 walks lead by Wegner and Cassy Bortz with 2 hits a piece.  RBI’s by Taylar Bortz(1), Cassy Bortz (2), Grace Wegner (3), Katie Bourgard (4), Riannon Kolar(1), and Ava Barton (1).
    Game 2 say the Castle guards jump out to a 1-0 lead after on inning.  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.  Molly Hohner grounded out to the shortstop scoring Kolar followed by Taylar Weinberger reaching on throwing error plating Gavin.  After a strikeout, Taylor Bortz ripped a double to score Weinberger followed by a sharp single by Cassy Bortz to score Taylar Bortz.  That brought Grace Wegner back to the plate where she laced a triple down the left field line scoring Cassy Bortz.  A  single by Katie Bourgard scores Wegner.  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.  The only walk she gave up was a 10 pitch battle in the last inning.”

Butternut Mercer girls softball picked up a win in their first official game of the season last night at Ashland last night 26-8.  Grace Wegner and Cassy Bortz combine to give up 4 hits, 6 walks, with 7 K’s over 4 innings with Wegner getting the W.  2 hits a piece for Cassy Bortz, Bella Bourgard and Katie Bourgard.  Katie collecting 7 RBI, and Rhiannon Kolar with a HR.  Next up for Butternut/Mercer is a 4:30pm home game tonight vs Wakefield/Maranesco (pending field conditions)  “It sure was nice to finally get a full game in outside and the girls really had fun.  We were patient at the plate early in the game, taking our walks, and then the hits started coming.  Katie had a big night driving in runs for us.  Very happy how we started off.  Solid base running and only 1 error in the field.  Grace and Cassy did a great job on the mound tonight.” – From Coach Glenn Wegner

(From Coach Murphy)
Prentice beat Athens Saturday night. 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.

12-25, 14-25
“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.”

Prentice won a Marawood North conference match against Abbotsford Tuesday night in a tough, tough 5 set match.  We lost set 1 25-19, regrouped to win 2 and 3 25-22, 25-20. Then completely fell apart in set 4, losing 25-14.  Then we found it in set 5 winning 15-12. We picked a good night to bring it together on senior night.  Senior Alyssa Schellin led the offense with 24 kills and sophomore Olivia Burcaw was close with 23.  We only had 4 service errors on the night, and I think that made the difference.  We kept the pressure on Abby to pass the ball well. Senior Chelby Hartman had 43 assists.  She was on last night. Nothing was getting away from her last night.

S.E.a.L. Trap Shooting Team

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.

Good hard fought victory for the Butternut Mercer Chequamegon combined jr softball team Monday night vs the visiting Ironwood Red Devils.  Final score BMC 3, Ironwood 2.  Eva Paswald goes 7 strong innings giving up only 3 hits and 3 walks while striking out 18 batters.  Pitchers dual through 4 until Ironwood was able to tally a run after a walk and double.  BMC answered in the bottom of the 5th with Haley Minnema reaching on an error by the 3rd baseman and advancing to third on a couple wild pitches and finally home on a past ball to knot the game at 1 each.  BMC takes the lead in the bottom of the 6th with Maddie Bourgard reaching on a hit by pitch followed by a couple walks to advance her to 3rd where she would score on a wild pitch.  Ironwood fights back with an unearned run in the top of the 7th on a clean single to tie the game.  Paswald strikes out the batter with runners on 2nd and 3rd to end the threat.  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.  Another fielders choice out at 3rd base leaves BMC with runners on 1st and 2nd with 2 outs.  Ironwood then intentionally walks Grace Wegner to load the bases.  Eva Paswald comes through with an infield single to plate Nina Kelto for the walk-off win.  Upcoming home games this week for BMC include a game vs Mellen on Wednesday night, Flambeau on Thursday night and Ashland on Friday night.  Game time is 6pm at the high school field complex.  Remember to bring your lawn chairs as the bleachers have been removed making way for the new ones.

The Butternut Mercer girls softball wrapped up their regular season on Monday night, dropping a non conference game to Mellen 11-10.  Back and forth battle saw Mellen scratch a run in the first with BM responding with 2 in the 2nd, each team trading runs in the 3rd and Mellen plating a run in the 4th to tie the game at 3 a piece. Grace Wegner’s 2 RBI triple in the bottom of the 5th gave the Lady Pioneers the lead.  Mellen responded with 4 runs in the top of the 6th thanks to a couple defensive errors to grab a 7-5 advantage.  RBI’s by Jess Klopatek and Taylar Bortz helped BM score 3 in the bottom of the frame to go ahead 8-7.  A couple more defensive miscues allowed Mellen to score 4 in the top of the 7th to go ahead 11-8.  The Lady Pioneers rallied to score 2 runs to pull within 1 but stranded the tying run at 3rd to end the game.  Butternut Mercer pounded out 16 hits including 5 doubles and 2 triples.  “We definitely hit the ball well tonight, but made a lot of base running errors that cost us a couple runs and took us out of, what could have been, some really big innings.  Key defensive errors late in the game proved to be the difference maker”- Coach Wegner.  Taylar Bortz lead the offense going 3-4 with 2 runs scored 2 doubles and RBI and stolen base.  Rhiannon Kolar continued to pound the ball with a double and triple.  Taylor Weinberger went 3-4 with a double, and RBI and run scored.  Bortz pitched 6 strong innings giving up 7 runs (only 3 earned) on 7 hits, 7 walks and 1 K.  Grace Wegner pitched the 7th giving up 4 runs (only 1 earned) with no hits allowed, 3 walks and 2 K’s. Butternut Mercer ends their regular season with a 6-9 overall record, good for the 5th seed in Regionals and travel to Minong on Wednesday the 23 to face Northwood.
Butternut Mercer fell to Northwood 18-3 in a 4 inning contest Wednesday night at Minong.  Tight battle through 2 innings with Northwood scoring on a home run in the first.  The Northwood Evergreens exploded for 11 unearned runs in the bottom of the 3rd to put the game out of reach.  A couple of early errors followed by some solid hitting allowed Northwood to pull away.  Butternut Mercer fought back in the top of the 4th scoring 3.  After 1 out, Grace Wegner got it started with a single followed by a Tryphina Zielke walk.  After a lineout to 1st by Rhiannon Kolar, Chelsea McReynolds reached on an error to load the bases for Emma Herbst who lined a single to left to plate the first run of the game.  With based still loaded Jess Klopatek came though with a big hit to score 2 more but was thrown out a second to end the frame.  Northwood scores 6 in the bottom of the 4th to end the game via the 15 run rule.  “We basically ran out of pitching at the end with all 3 girls nursing arm injuries.  Taylar really pitched will early on, but that 3 inning really took it’s toll on her in the heat”  Grace Wegner and Rhiannon Kolar combined to pitch the 4th to finish the game.  “This was a great group of girls to coach this year and we took a big stop forward for the program with the core of the team still intact for next season.  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.”

Butternut/Mercer Pioneers had an excited come from behind win in 8 innings against a solid and determined Solon Springs team.  Seth Scherwinski started on the mound and pitched 4 solid innings, leaving with a 3-2 lead.  But the Eagles would not go away and when Ethan Skaggs hit a 2 run HR in the 7th off Pioneers reliever Jace Scherwinski it look like and upset.  The Pioneers go the leadoff batter on in the bottom of the 7th, but was erased on a line out double play.  Carter Christian doubled on a looper down the right field line.  John Lynch down to his last strike rifled a hard hit single to right to score Christian.  Lynch was thrown out on the play trying to stretch to 2nd base on the play.  Scherwinski shut down the Eagles in the top of the 8th.  Then lead off the bottom of the 8th with a single, stole 2nd and 3rd.  With 1 out, Trevor Pollitt came through with the infield drawn in with a single to left to score Scherwinski for the walk off 5-4 win.
“It was a fun game to be part off.”  Solon played a heck of a game, in particular Banks on the mound and Skaggs with the huge 2 run HR to take the lead.  We’re happy to come out with this win. We have not been as sharp as we should be, but someone keeps stepping up to pull us through.  John Lynch has been hitting the ball the past week or so, tonight he came through with a big one.  Then Trevor and Jace got the run in the 8th.  We’ve had different clutch hitters on a nightly basis.
B/M (11-2,7-0) clinch at least a share of the Indianhead Conference title, and travel to Hurley on Thursday.  They will play Northland Pines in the Washburn Tournament on Saturday.

The Lady Pioneers of Butternut Mercer evened their season record to 6-6 on the year with a sweep over the visiting Cardinals from South Shore on Friday night in Butternut.  Game 1 had the Lady Pioneers edging out the Cardinals 10-9.  Going the distance and earning the W was Sophomore G
race Wegner going 5 innings giving up 9 Runs (7 earned), on 5 hits and 10 walks with 8 strikeouts.  Wegner also helped her cause going 2-3 at the plate with a triple, stolen base and 2 RBI and 3 runs scored.  Senior Triphina Zielke also had a nice day at the dish going 2-3 with 3 RBI.  Junior Taylar Bortz chipped in with 2 hits and 2 stolen bases and 2 runs scored and Senior Chelsea McReynolds also had 2 hits in the game.  Coach Wegner “ we got some bad news a half hour before game time and would have to go the night without our top pitcher in Bortz with a shoulder injury.”  Wegner got the nod to start and proved ready for the challenge. “Grace hasn’t really been stretched out too far with Bortz seeing most of the action on the mound and she really stepped it up with a very impressive performance tonight.  Not only that but our defense really played well again.  Freshman Rhiannon Kolar out in RF and Sophomore Ella Torkelson at SS made some spectacular catches at key moments in the game and Sophomore Jess Klopatek made an incredible scoop on a low throw to secure the final out of the contest with bases loaded”- Coach Wegner
Game 2 of the twin bill saw the Butternut Mercer team jump out to an early 10-2 advantage and finish off the visiting Cardinals 14-2.  Grace Wegner once again with the complete game going 5 strong only allowing 2 ER on 3 hits, 5 walks, 2 HBP with 7 punchouts.  “Grace at times, really found a nice rhythm.  After giving up a walk and 3 consecutive singles to give the Cardinals 2 runs in the bottom on the first, she really buckled down and started pounding the strike zone.  She pitched a perfect 3rd inning with 3 K’s on 9 pitches.  I can’t say enough about the effort she gave tonight, just incredible”- Coach Wegner  Wegner again lead the offense going 3-4 at the plate with 2 Runs and 2 RBI. Taylar Bortz with 2 more hits and 4 runs scored, 2 RBI and 2 SB’s, Triphina Zielke had another a big game going 3-4 with a run.  Rhiannon Kolar had a big double as well plating 2 runners. “Up and down the lineup tonight, we consistently put the ball in play and are now gaining some confidence.  Not only hitting the ball but driving it into gaps.  The team is still pretty young but starting to really come together and play a complete game”- coach Wegner.
Next up for Butternut Mercer is a home double header vs the Solon Spring Eagles on Monday the 14th, followed by a non conference home game vs Rib Lake.

Butternut won a conference match at home against South Shore in 4 sets 25/15, 22/25, 25/12, 25/13.
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.  This was the scrappiest I’ve seen them play.  My setters Taylar Bortz and Gabby McCorison both had great nights setting and digging up tips.
Grace Wegner led the team with 17 kills followed by Gwen McCorison with 10 and Gabby with 8.
Taylar led the team with 4 service aces followed by Chaselyn Currier with 3.

Butternut won a conference match tonight at Solon Springs in 3 sets 25/10, 25/23, 25/14.

Sophomore Grace Wegner led the team with 11 digs followed by freshman Gwen Mccorison and Senior Gabby Mccorison with 9 each.
Gabby led the team with 4 aces followed by senior Chelsea McReynolds with 3.

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.

(From Coach Bortz – Butternut)
Butternut lost a non-conference game against Chequamegon tonight in 3 sets 15/25, 13/25, 16/25.
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.

Butternut notched their 5th win of the season beating Wisconsin Valley Lutheran 49-42 in nonconference play  at Mosinee. Butternut led at the half 21-15.
WVL tied the game at 40 with under 4 minutes to play, but the Midgets were too strong down the stretch and held on for the win.
It was a well needed win and it was a team effort to get it. Gabby McCorisin launched 4 from the 3 point line and . Grace Wegner and Danielle Koch got inside and sealed the win for us. The girls rebounded well. My subs played very well tonight. Nice team win.

The Stratford Tigers were looking to go undefeated in Marawood Conference football and win the outright championship on Friday night. Stratford was able to accomplish both goals by defeating the Phillips Loggers by a score of 46-0.
The Stratford Tigers under Coach Jason Tubbs had earned victory after victory with a strong rushing game and once again that ground game was on display. Dylan Paschel ran 12 yards for a score, Cole Hoffman had touchdown runs of 15 and 38 yards, Andrew Schoenfuss scampered 11 yards to score, Dilan Dehlinger crossed the goal line from 2 yards out and Derek Martin completed the ground attach with a 20 yard run. The Tigers were able to tally one touchdown from the air on a 25 yard pass from Max Schwabe to Vaughn Breit.  Stafford finishes the regular Marawood Conference season with a record of 8-0.
The Phillips Loggers were lead by the rushing of Brandon Huettl and Dakota Haberman. Several times the Loggers had the ball in scoring position but each time lost the ball on downs. Although the Stratfford Tigers were able to put 46 points on the board, they found the Logger defense lead by Christian Makovsky, Jake Giannoni, and  Jeremy Marschke to be  stubborn as they stopped them several times on four downs.  Coaches Steven Precour and BJ Bolz will miss the 8 seniors who played their last game for Phillips. But they will have 24 returning players including their quarterback, running backs. and one starting wide receiver. Phillips finishes the season at 0-8 in the very tough Marawood Conference.

A battle of conference leaders started out as just that between Butternut-Mercer and Hurley at Hurley last night, with Hurley leading 1-0 entering the bottom of the 3rd.  But from that point on Hurley’s big advantage in experience showed as they dialed in at the plate with some timely big hits, hustle, and execution.  A hit, a walk, double steal, an intentional walk set up back to back perfectly executed suicide squeezes.  That was followed by 3 straight hits from the top of the order to bust the game open for a 9-0 lead. Things continued that way for the 20-2 Hurley win.
Jace Scherwinski took the loss on the mound pitching 3 innings.  Trevor Pollitt and Carter Christian each pitched in the 11 run 4th inning.  Hurley combined 9 hits with 10 walks and 9 B/M errors, most in the 3rd and 4th innings.  John Lynch had 2 of B/M’s 4 hits.
Coach Scherwinski commented, “I think they had something they wanted to prove.  We had an early season win over them.  They came out with a little more focus, a little more intensity.  When things were not going the way they wanted, their experienced team was able to regroup, focus a little more and execute.  We don’t have that ability, yet, to regroup and keep the wheels from falling off after a couple mistakes.”
