Lady Hornets struggle on defense in shutout against Three Lakes/Phelps
space
Unlike its good fortune Monday, the Elcho softball team ran into a buzz saw and its name was Three Lakes/Phelps. Facing one of the best pitchers let alone teams in the Northern Lakes, Elcho fell 13-0 in five innings.

This was a tough night all the way around, Elcho coach Jamie Robrecht noted. It’s disappointing when we sit back and don’t swing. With changes from game to game, as a player you have to adjust.

One bright spot was found on the mound in Jessica Slowik. Despite taking the loss, she handed out four strikeouts.

Jess did a good job, Robrecht said. She has been working on her change up and was excited that she was able to get a few of the girls (Three Lakes) on it.

The Hornets lone hit of the night went to Kenzie Novak, a triple coming in the fourth inning. Prior to that Elcho went down in consecutive batting order with more strike outs than coach would have liked.

The Hornets sit a game out of first at 2-1 in the NLC, 3-4 overall behind first place Three Lakes/Phelps at 3-0, 4-4 and Laona/Wabeno at 2-0, 3-6.

Elcho will be back on the field tonight, weather permitting as they head to Crandon who are 0-2, 1-4. First

Despite outplaying Indians, Lady Robins lose tight Great Northern game
space
The Antigo High School girls softball team had everything it needed Tuesday at Mosinee. Except for the win.

Outhitting the Indians and playing solid defense, the Robins unfortunately gave up four runs in the sixth inning to erase a 1-0 lead and ended up losing the tight game, 4-3.

Mosinee remained atop the Great Northern Conference with a 5-0 record while Antigo slipped to 3-1. The Robins are 6-2 overall while the Indians are 8-2.

Coach Sandi Robrecht pointed out how difficult the loss was to take given the Robins’ overall excellent play.

It was a very disappointing loss, she said. I felt like we controlled most aspects of the game. We out hit them and played pretty solid defense.

The Indians pushed across three runs on AHS starter Allison Kondzela in the sixth, combining a pair of hits and walks to tie the score before plating the winning run after reliever Kendall Smith entered the game.

Kondzela took the loss despite allowing just three hits and one earned run while whiffing seven Indians and issuing three walks. Smith hurled for the last inning and one-third, struck out two batters, granted a free pass, and gave up a hit.More

Antigo JV baseball team downs Medford, 9-2
space
The Antigo Red Robins junior varsity baseball team continued their winning ways on Tuesday, downing the Medford Raiders at home by a final score of 9-2.

Eric Langseth led a 13 hit attack for the Robins’ offense with a three for four performance, including a double and a run driven in.

Brady Renfro also doubled and was credited with an RBI. Zach Jaje went two for four with two RBIs, while Logan Doering was two for two. Sebastian Noskowiak, Korbin Krueger, Matt Stank, Noah Samolinski and Wesley Meyer also singled in the win. Noskowiak, Krueger and Meyer were credited with runs driven in.

Brennen Spencer, Krueger and Jared McFarlane combined on the mound for Antigo to hold the Raiders to two runs on seven base hits.

Spencer started and went 2 1/3 innings and gave up just a lone run, although he struggled with the free pass, giving up five base on balls. He was relieved by McFarlane who closed out the frame. Krueger came on in the fourth and gave up a run on four hits, did not walk a batter and struck out four in four innings of work.

The JV team will next play at Rhinelander Thursday.

Lady Hornets open conference action with a 13-0 shutout
space
Things looked a little bleak for the Lady Hornets Tuesday as the visiting Florence team loaded up the bags with its first three batters. But then Jessica Slowik started a perfect game of catch with Kenzie Novak behind the plate to pitch three strikeouts in a row and pull Elcho out of a jamb—leading the way to a 13-0 shutout.

As a coach, you never want to rely on one player to make your team, Elcho coach Jamie Robrecht explained, but tonight, Jess did just that. She was amazing on the mound with strikeouts, and all at crucial times.

Staying focused, Slowik delivered a solid performance on the mound, pitching her way through the Bobcat’s lineup. Coupled with great field play by her teammates, the Lady Hornets restricted its number of errors (something which has plagued the team thus far) to just one while forcing Florence to strand nine on the bases.

The girls really worked hard tonight, Robrecht stated. We had a good night on the field and at the plate. Everyone was making contact.

Slowik earned the W in five innings of work as she faced 23 batters. In all, she issued 10 strikeout, fanned a mere three, and gave up four hits.
