Impressive accolades for several Red Robin softball ladies
space
Not unlike their baseball counterparts, the Antigo High School girls softball team took home a dugout full of honors after an impressive 2017 season.

The Robins finished its 2017 Great Northern Conference season tied for fourth place with Rhinelander at 8-4, a couple of bounces away from competing for league crown. They finished 19-7 overall.

Four Lady Robins earned first team all-conference, Allison Kondzela, Laurissa Belott, Alivia Weix, and Abi Fleischman. Kendall Smith garnered a second team nod, and Alayna Weix, Lizzy West, and Alison Peters were accorded honorable mention status, meaning that overall, eight of the nine-woman roster received special status.

Coach Sandi Robrecht’s sluggers didn’t stop there.

Kondzela was named first team All-District 1 among large school players by the Wisconsin Fastpitch Softball Coaches Association (WFSCA) while Smith received honorable mention recognition.

Additionally, four Lady Robins displayed their all-around acumen by receiving Academic All-State honors. Riley Arrowood, Alivia Weix, Belott and Kondzela all displayed their athletic prowess along with maintaining a GPA of at least 3.5.

The Antigo American Legion baseball team moved to 3-1 in the Wisconsin Valley Legion League Tuesday night, with a 10-0, five inning shutout of Merrill at Kretz Brothers Park.

The Typhoon grabbed the lead in the second inning and never looked back.

Antigo put up another two spot on the scoreboard in the bottom of the third inning with sacrifice flies from both Held and Nick Marshall for a 4-0 advantage.

The bottom of the fourth saw A.J. Kirsch drive in a run with a single, which was later followed by Jesse Jankowski’s two run double to make it 7-0.

Northern Edge's Petersen to play hockey at Concordia

River News sports editor

When the final horn sounded in the Rhinelander/Antigo girls hockey team’s WIAA playoff loss to Point/Rapids/Marshfield in February, goalie Shea Petersen thought her playing days might be over.

I actually didn’t know what I was going to do with my life, she admitted.

That changed over the last few months as Petersen was recruited by, and eventually signed with, Concordia University (Wis.) to play women’s college hockey. She made that commitment official May 30 in a press conference at Rhinelander High School.

I was really heartbroken when high school hockey ended because I had played for 12 years. It’s my life, she said. To be able to continue on is huge for me.

Petersen, a four-year starter in goal for the Edge, said she was first contacted by Concordia in January and things developed quickly from there.

I got this email from the coach and he asked me to fill out this survey if I was interested in applying for the team. I think five other goalies filled it out. I applied I think I applied for the school in January, it was super late and then I ended up being the o
