space
The Antigo 9U Stallions team opened its season this past weekend, finishing fourth in the 11-team Bulldog Bash held in New London.

Antigo opened play Saturday against West Bend, and scored a 5-3 win. The Stallions needed just four hits to account for its five runs, with Liam Burt leading the way with a double and single. Caleb Vandenlangenberg and Scotty Hagerty each added doubles as well.

Marcus Washatko, Vandenlangenberg, and Hagerty were all solid on the mound in the win. Washatko struck out four over two innings of work, while Vandenlangenberg punched out five. Hagerty threw one scoreless frame.

Game two was an 11-3 rout of Laconia, in a game ended on the mercy rule.

Coleman Marmes led the Stallions at the plate with two doubles and two runs batted in, while Hagerty tripled and drove in a pair.

Burt had an RBI double, with Nate Malone contributing a two-bagger to the winning cause.

Hayden Thill and Blake Genske comprised the Stallions’ pitching staff. Each tossed two innings. Thill struck out five, Genske punched out four.

Antigo moved on to face Waupaca Sunday and emerged 8-4 winners after trailing early 3-0.

Tom Schofield is new Antigo athletic director
space
Antigo High School will have a new Athletic Director beginning with the 2018-19 school year.

Current AHS Head Football Coach Tom Schofield has accepted the position, after Matt Meronk stepped down as AD after six years. Meronk will remain with the district, as he has taken on a new position as assistant eight and ninth grade principal at AHS.

Schofield will remain on as Head Football Coach, a position he took over in 2015, taking a 4-6 team to three straight Great Northern Conference championships, including a 10-2 record and deep playoff run this past season.

Tom is the grandson of legendary Antigo coach Gordon Schofield, who won three state titles during his time at the helm, and played college football at Eastern Illinois where he provided the punting duties.

He has also worked as a physical education teacher in the district, but will now take on the challenge of overseeing all of Antigo’s athletic operations.

I’m very excited for the opportunity to continue a strong tradition of Red Robins athletics and activities, Schofield said. I hope to ensure the highest quality programs for all students to participate in at Antigo.

Historic season ends for Red Robins in sectional final
space
A historic season for the Antigo Red Robins baseball team came to a close Tuesday, one win shy of a state tournament appearance.

Playing in a WIAA Division One sectional at Bay Port High School, the Robins took advantage of late Wausau West miscues to work some seventh inning magic in a 3-2 come from behind win, before the miscues worked against Antigo in the sectional final, a 12-4 loss to Green Bay Preble.

This was by no means a lost season, the boys had an absolute great year, Head Coach Scott Farmer said. There was 96 teams that started this journey and only eight can say they made it farther than the Red Robins, only four can say they beat us, and with the goofy weather and adversity they overcame, including losing A.J. Kirsch on the mound and from the lineup for a bit, they have every reason to walk with their chins high for the great work they did.

WAUSAU WEST

Play began Tuesday morning with the sectional semifinal against Wisconsin Valley Conference power Wausau West. The game was a tight pitcher’s duel throughout, as Antigo’s Brady Tatro matched up against Chandler Fochs for the Warriors.

Tatro went the distance, allowing j

No early exit, Red Robin baseball team advances to sectional with decisive 13-3 win over Raiders
space
There will be no early exit for the Antigo Red Robins baseball team in the playoffs this season, as the top seeded Robins added a Division One regional championship to what is already an impressive campaign with a 13-3, five inning win over Pulaski Thursday at Kretz Park.

The win erased memories of last season’s disappointment, when a 22-2 Robins team fell to Mosinee 5-1 in another regional final.

The boys did a great job coming ready to play, Head Coach Scott Farmer said. Our pregame was the best it has looked all year and it carried out onto the field, everyone did a great job.

Trailing 1-0 in the bottom of the first, the Robins took control with a four-run frame. Matt Winter led off the inning with a walk, Wade Farmer and Brady Tatro both singled, loading the bases for Garret Held, who delivered a sacrifice fly to tie the game.

Two batters later, A.J. Kirsch step to the plate and delivered a three-run homer for a 4-1 advantage. It was a nice return for Kirsch, who had missed recent time with an injury.

We had a great start with Matt, Wade, and Brady getting us going by making them have to play D right away, Farmer noted. A.J. got bac

Fast start, good pitching key softball 5-3 playoff win
space
The Antigo Red Robins softball team has advanced in the WIAA division two playoffs, as it upended Medford in a regional semifinal on the road Tuesday, 5-3.

We jumped out to an early lead and added a few more runs here and there to secure the win, Head Coach Sandi Robrecht said. Kendall Smith threw really well and kept Medford’s bats quiet.

Smith pitched all seven innings for the win. Only two of Medford’s three runs were earned, while she allowed just four hits, walked five and struck out four.

Antigo got on the board in the top of the first inning with two runs.

Laynie Weix walked with one out, and Brettingen drove her in with a base hit. Smith was next up and singled, moving Brettingen into scoring position for Lizzy West, who delivered another RBI single.

Following a scoreless second, the Robins tacked on two more runs in the third.

Brettingen and Smith were the catalysts, with both drawing a walk to begin the inning. After West was retired, Allison Peters was hit by a pitch to load the bases.

Two batters later, Taylor Arrowood came through with a clutch two-out single, scoring both Brettingen and Smith for a 4
