Place your bets on whether Wisconsin will gamble

For a section of American sports fans that does not include independent-contractor bookies, it’s good news week.

The Supreme Court overturned the federal ban on sports gambling, leaving it up to each individual state to determine its own course therein.

Much of the reaction in the wake of the decision was positive, as were the musings on how the coming truckloads of dough will be divvied up. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban surmised that, in the wake of the Supreme Court decision, the value of every pro sports franchise has at least doubled.

Various questions still linger, such as how each state will structure its format, which states are all-in, which ones are one the fence, etc.

Another question that arose is what took so long for this to happen.

Xavier spoils Shawano’s senior day


Leader photo by Morgan Rode Jacob Lacy rips a single during Shawano’s 14-11 loss to Xavier on Tuesday in Shawano.

Through three innings, it looked as if the Shawano baseball team was going to cruise to a Bay Conference win over Xavier.

Instead, the visitors scored 13 unanswered runs, including a six-run fourth inning to pick up a 14-11 win over Shawano at Memorial Park on Tuesday.

After Xavier scored a run in the top of the first, Shawano answered with a pair of runs in the bottom of the inning to grab an early lead. Cole Nelson scored the first run on a passed ball before Nick Grignon drove home Alex Hoffman on a sacrifice fly.

After the hosts held Xavier scoreless the next two innings, Shawano erupted for seven runs in the bottom of the third to take a commanding lead.

Brad Bartz, Casey Baumann, Brett Ainsworth and Joey Tadych each delivered RBI singles in the inning. Alex Hoffman clubbed a two-RBI double before later scoring on a passed ball to make the score 9-1.

Bonduel snags key conference win


Leader photo by Morgan Rode Bonduel pitcher Isaac Boldt fires a pitch during the Bears’ 7-4 win over Iola-Scandinavia on Monday in Bonduel.

Beating a team twice in one season is a difficult task for any team at any level of play. Beating the same team twice in a matter of days is an even tougher challenge to achieve.

The Bonduel baseball team accomplished the feat on Monday, downing Iola-Scandinavia 7-4 at Jack Reinke Field.

The victory came just two days after the Bears escaped with a 3-2 win over the Thunderbirds. The start of Monday’s game had a different feel than Saturday’s tightly-contested matchup, as Bonduel looked as if it were going to cruise to a blowout win after taking a 5-0 lead after three innings.

The Bears got on the scoreboard in the first inning on back-to-back singles from Bryce Maule and Noah Beilfuss. Wyatt Erb added a RBI single in the second before Bryce Weier walked with the bases-loaded to make the score 4-0. Jordan Boldt ripped an RBI single in the third frame.

Lamberies now two for two

Lucas Lamberies hustled back to Shawano from Iowa to race Saturday night.

It proved to be a good move for the Clintonville teenager as he won his second feature in a row to start the season.

Former track champions Ron Berna and Travis VanStraten each stormed their way into victory lane for their first features of the year while Mike Mullen and Max Oreskovich, no strangers to victory lane themselves, notched win number one on the young season.

Troy Springborn and Brett Swedberg began the Late Model feature with a door to door battle for the lead. Springborn would lead the first two laps before Swedberg made an outside pass to take the lead. Ron Berna moved past Springborn on the following lap to take second.
