GIRLS SWIM

Shawano/Bonduel 87

Witt-Birn 78

Wittenberg-Birnamwood earned first-place finishes in six of 11 varsity events, but it was depth of the Shawano/Bonduel team that helped the co-op to a dual win in Wittenberg on Tuesday.

Madi Hanson placed first in the 100-yard breaststroke (1 minute, 23.2 seconds) and 50 freestyle (29.88) for Shawano/Bonduel. Gabi Bukowski also won two events, the 200 freestyle (2:24.62) and 500 freestyle (6:16.24). Isabel Colon claimed first in the 200 IM (2:39.99), just ahead of Witt-Birn’s Christina Thrun (2:40).

Witt-Birn’s Olivia Curley (1:09.26) edged Shawano/Bonduel’s Macy Monfils (1:10.89) in the 100 freestyle. Lauren Bahr eased to first-place finishes in the 100 butterfly (1:11.45) and 100 backstroke (1:08.08) for the Chargers.

Packers’ on-and-off dualism not recommended route to Super Bowl

Given their erratic performance to this point, the only thing that the Green Bay Packers need more than a week off is a notch on the left side of the W-L-T column.

“We seem to be a one-half team,” quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. “One half good, one half not so good.”

Mired in half-slow, half-fast limbo, the Packers have been consistently inconsistent over the first five weeks, neither winning nor losing two in a row.

Among the laundry list of concerns after the 31-23 loss at Detroit is that the Packers can’t count on an automatic three points every time they line up for a field goal. Mason Crosby’s four misses against the Lions, plus his second missed extra point in two weeks, is a worrisome departure from the norm. It was also the worst day by an NFL kicker in almost 40 years.

Shawano makes quick work of East

It could have easily been a trap game for the Shawano volleyball team.

With a perfect 5-0 record in the Bay Conference and a date with fellow unbeaten Xavier just five days away, Shawano traveling to 4-1 Green Bay East on Thursday night could have been overlooked by the Hawks.

It was pretty evident early on that wasn’t going to be the case. Shawano used runs of 15-0 and 14-0 in the first two sets and cruised to a 25-9, 25-8, 25-12 sweep.

“We just know not to underestimate a team because, when we play not-as-good teams, we tend to stoop down to their level, which we can’t do,” senior outside hitter Julia Klement said. “We just come out with a hard start and that’s what really helps us.”

The dominating performance took Shawano coach Breanna Young by surprise.

“I was not expecting that,” Young said. “I’ll be honest, I was not.

Athlete of the Week: Crede Timm

Athlete: Crede Timm

Sport: Football

Positions: Wide receiver

School: Shawano Community High School

Year: Senior

The Shawano Community High School football team’s season has not gone according to plan, but that hasn’t stopped senior Crede Timm from giving it his all. The wide receiver, who also receives plenty of carries in the run game, is tough to bring down, with multiple defenders often needed to get him to the ground.

Crede Timm has been one of the top targets in the passing game for his brother, Gage Timm. In last Saturday’s loss to Xavier, Crede Timm turned in one of his best games of the fall, catching four passes for 90 yards and a pair of touchdowns while also rushing for 62 yards on 15 carries. He also recovered a fumble in the end zone for a score that saved a long Shawano drive from ending in a turnover.

Q: When did your interest in football begin?

A: When I was about 6 years old.

Step back in time at Capote Classic rendezvous

Smell the wood smoke wafting through the oak trees. Hear the crack-thud of blackpowder-burning muzzleloaders firing round balls into targets. See the men, women and children dressed in buckskins and colorful capote jackets decorated with tarnished metal pins.

If you ignore the modern cars and trucks in the parking lot and don’t look too closely around camp for cell phones and other high-tech gear, you can imagine a pre-1840 camp of free trappers or wilderness explorers.

This is the annual encampment of the Fox Valley Muzzleloaders Club members and guests. On one end of the 40-acre site south of New London, you’ll find a few modern campers and nylon tents. The vast majority, however, are sleeping in white canvas tents or teepees and staying warm under wool blankets or even buffalo robes.
