Local golfers miss state cut

Shawano Community High School junior Julia Beck saw her season come to an end Tuesday, shooting 100 at the WIAA Division 1 girls golf sectional at Royal Scot Golf Course in New Franken.

Beck had a 49 after the first nine holes.

“It was one of her better games,” Shawano coach Dean Kugler said. “She kind of knew it was going to be tough today.”

The coach said Royal Scot played long Tuesday.

“She just wasn’t good enough on the greens,” Kugler said. “That’s what she’s going to work on for next year.”

Kugler said he hopes making sectionals as a junior will serve as a springboard for an even better senior season.

“Will she take it and run with it?” Kugler said. “She has the opportunity. Hopefully it opens her eyes that she’s not that far away.”

Beck qualified for the sectional by shooting a 97 at the Division 1 regional Oct. 1 at Thornberry Creek at Oneida.

Shawano Community High School added three members to its athletic hall of fame as part of its homecoming festivities Saturday.

The inductees were George Bowan, Class of 1938; Tim McGuire, Class of 1961, and Carol (Duquain) Schils, Class of 1973.

Ron Bowan accepted the honor on behalf of his father, who is deceased.

George Bowan participated in basketball, track and field and football.

In track, Bowan was part of the 1936 team that earned conference, district and state titles. In 1938 he was the individual state board jump champion and helped the team finish second at state. In 1938 he was also part of the Shawano football team that went undefeated, and a defense that did not allow a score in conference play.

Bowan also excelled at golf, competing on the Shawano Club Golf team. Later in life he won several of the area’s regional tournaments.

Homecoming loss hurts Hawks' playoff hopes

A few big special teams and defensive plays were not enough for the Shawano Community High School football team, whose offense could produce only a pair of field goals in a 19-14 homecoming loss to Luxemburg-Casco on a rainy Saturday.

A stout Shawano defense that provided six points when senior Zack Sousek returned a fumble for a touchdown and forced two punts and three turnovers on downs gave the Hawks the lead until the fourth quarter.

The defense, however, could not overcome four interceptions thrown by sophomore quarterback Jack Hanauer and two drives that turned into field goals rather than TDs.

“The defense did a great job today, kept us in the football game, forced turnovers, got some stops,” Shawano coach Al Tomow said. “We needed to do some more on offense, and we just didn’t get it done today. We wasted a good effort by our defense.”

Close, but not enough

For the fourth-straight time, the Bonduel High School football team was defeated by Central Wisconsin-Conference-8 foe Shiocton, losing 27-7 Friday in Bonduel.

It was a far cry from last year’s 47-0 drubbing in Shiocton, but special teams miscues and turnovers were too much for the Bears to overcome.

“They’re a great football team,” Bonduel coach James Westrich said. “They make you beat them; they don’t beat themselves. That’s what we did today a little bit.”

Bonduel’s day started well, forcing a turnover on downs and getting a quick score when senior quarterback Colton Dobratz (6-foot, 160 pounds) found senior receiver Connor Rosin (6-2, 195 pounds) for a 26-yard touchdown. Dobratz would finish with 51 yards on 9 of 25 passing.

Bonduel relied on its defense to keep the lead, forcing back-to-back punts even after a Dobratz interception gave Shiocton good field position.

BHS golfer advances to sectional


Contributed Photo Bonduel High School senior Taylor Diemel concentrates on a putt during Wednesday’s WIAA Division 2 regional at Irish Waters Golf Course in Freedom.

Taylor Diemel was determined to pick up her game after a slump this season.

A lot of hard work later, and a few extra trips to Irish Waters Golf Course in Freedom, and the senior is bound for sectionals.

Diemel shot a 97, one of her best rounds of the season, at Irish Waters at the WIAA Division 2 regional Wednesday. She tied with Little Chute’s Katie Spaeth for 10th, taking the third of four individual qualifying spots for Monday’s sectional at Mid-Vallee Golf Course in De Pere.

“She really wanted to make it an opportunity for her,” Bonduel coach Lynn Schaal said. “She played well.”

Diemel is the first Bonduel girls golfer to reach sectionals since Bethany Voekler did it her junior season in 2010.

Freedom’s Lori Meyer (88) finished fifth overall to nab the first individual spot, Wrightstown’s Victoria Draxler (95) took the second spot by finishing eighth and Oconto Falls Brittany Russell (104) took the fourth spot finishing 18th.

Beck shoots 97, makes sectional

The young Shawano Community High School girls golf team regressed, but junior Julia Beck earned a trip to sectionals at Wednesday’s WIAA Division 1 regional tournament at Thornberry Creek at Oneida.

Beck shot a 97, finishing tied with Green Bay Preble’s Sydney Onesti for ninth. Beck had the lowest individual qualifying score, ahead of Ashwaubenon’s Kayley Sjoholm (98), Pulaski’s Emma Jonas (100) and Ashwaubenon’s Dani Neel (100).

“She played pretty well,” Shawano coach Dean Kugler said. “She left a lot of shots out there, too.”

Beck had a solid start, carding 47 on the front nine.

“I think she was hitting the ball from the tee as well as she has all year,” Kugler said. “When I watched her, a lot of chips and putts she left on the course. But, obviously, she played well. I saw her hit some really good drives.”

It will be Beck’s first trip to sectionals.

As a team Shawano finished seventh with a score of 455.
