Several area runners competed Saturday in the fourth annual River City 5K in Waterford.
Local results included:
The bats got started early and the pitching was dominant for eight innings as the Kenosha Kingfish held on for their fifth straight win, 10-6 over the La Crosse Loggers at Copeland Park on Friday night.
The Northwoods League South Division first-half champion Kingfish won their third in a row to open the second half.
The Kenosha Rake Legion baseball team split a pair of games on Wednesday and Thursday.
The Rake defeated Richmond (Ill.) Legion 7-1 on Thursday at Scot Forge Field, as Kyle Cable tossed a complete game, allowing four hits and two walks while striking out seven.
Kenosha’s Hannah Ramos will be competing with the USA Wrestling Women’s National Cadet Team in the UWW Cadet Pan Am Championships Friday through Sunday in Guadalajara, Mexico.
UWW Cadets are athletes from ages 15-17, and Ramos will be wrestling in the Women’s Freestyle Division at 60 kg. She earned her spot in the Pam Am Championships with a runner-up finish at the UWW Cadet Nationals in Irving, Texas, in May. She was also a Wisconsin State Champion at 138 pounds in the Girls Division this year.
The College Swimming Coaches Association of America recognized the Carthage men’s and women’s swimming and diving programs, as well as a pair of individuals from the men’s program.
On Tuesday, the CSCAA named the two Carthage programs to the 2015 All-Scholar Team. To receive recognition, programs must have achieved a GPA of 3.00 or higher during the spring semester.
Fresh off wrapping up the Northwoods League South Division first-half title on Tuesday, the Kenosha Kingfish opened the second half in style Wednesday night.
It was a combined effort on the mound that did the trick.
A staple of the Northwoods League is that clubs’ rosters are frequently updated, and that’s been the case for the Kenosha Kingfish this week.
After a roller coaster-like opening month-plus of the season, the Kenosha Kingfish are finally South Division first-half champions of the Northwoods League.
The Kingfish completed their rocky ride by sweeping the Lakeshore Chinooks in a day-night doubleheader Tuesday, winning the opener 6-1 at Kapco Park in Mequon and the nightcap 2-1 in front of 2,033 at Simmons Field.
Tremper sophomore-to-be Haley Johnson was selected among the “Best of the Rest” by the Wisconsin Soccer Coaches Association on Tuesday.
The organization also released its “First 11.” No Kenoshans were on that team.
Jimmy O’Lear fired a complete game seven-hitter and drove in two as the Rake Legion baseball team won 5-4 at Union Grove on Tuesday.
O’Lear struck out six against no walks.
Matthew Bible won the two-day Men’s City Open golf tournament, which concluded Sunday at Muni.
Bible shot 143 and finished six strokes ahead of Cory Metallo in the Championship Flight. Steve Levonowich was third with a 151 while Joe Torcaso was fourth with a 153 in the eight-golfer field.
Word that longtime Wisconsin men’s basketball coach Bo Ryan will spend one last season on the sideline rippled through the sports world Monday.
And while the decision wasn’t completely a surprise — Ryan is 67 years old — it still had many people talking including UW-Parkside men’s coach Luke Reigel, who of course, knows a thing or two about the four-time Big Ten Coach of the Year.
Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan plans to retire after next season, looking to pass the torch after molding the Badgers into a national power during his 14 seasons in Madison.
Ryan made the surprising announcement on Monday, and added that only some cajoling from athletic director Barry Alvarez kept him from calling it a career in April after Wisconsin lost to Duke in the national title game.
KENOSHA — For a moment in the ninth inning Sunday night, it looked like the Kenosha Kingfish would pull off an improbable comeback.
But in the end, it was visiting Mankato that came up big.
The East squad, which featured Bradford graduates Vinnie Hubli and Kyle Schulz and Tremper graduate Noah Jensen, tied for first at the annual Wisconsin Baseball Coaches Association Classic, which concluded Saturday at EJ Schneider Field in Oshkosh.
The East, North and West all went 2-1 at the two-day tournament. The South was 0-3.
