Golfer Werwie transitions from player to coach


From the time she was a young girl and started developing a serious interest in golf, Kenosha’s Carly Werwie dreamed of one day playing on the LPGA Tour.

It’s the reason she competed for three full seasons (2013-15) on the Symetra Tour, the LPGA’s official developmental circuit, while earning a total of $14,156.

But now, at the ripe old age of 27, the former Bradford High School and University of Wisconsin standout is basically retiring from competitive professional golf.

Tremper Varsity Scramble

Hawks’ Haines back at full strength


Indian Trail’s Shelby Haines no longer has to worry about her nagging knee injury, as the junior and the rest of her Hawks girls swim team opens the season Thursday at the Southeast Conference Relays.

“It’s more comforting that I know I’ll do better at 100 percent,” she said.

August observations


Having just returned from a nice, long vacation, I have some catching up to do on the sports scene. So here was the view from my back porch the past 21/2 weeks:

— The Pro Football Hall of Fame painted itself into a corner.

Green Bay Southwest Invitational

Prep soccer roundup: Teams vie in County Clash


Indian Trail’s Danny Bautista scored off an assist from fellow senior Armand Bennage in the 65th minute, and Central freshman Davin Cummings tied it about five minutes later as the teams played to a 1-1 draw on Tuesday in the County Clash at Ameche Field to open the season.

Hawks coach Jeff Laurent credited the play of midfielders Mariano Tenuta and Angel Rodriguez and defenders Casey Kaelber and Will Steck, saying, “We showed a lot of promise.”

Bullmore adds value to NU Wildcats


SOMERS — Graham Bullmore would not hide easily in a crowd.

At 6-foot-7, 295 pounds, with a crop of slightly red hair and an expression that doesn’t mask his ebullience, it’s easy to presume that Bullmore — a Bradford graduate who’s a redshirt junior offensive lineman on the Northwestern football team — casts a magnetic presence in any group.

Elsen’s visit home pays big dividends


Former Kenosha resident Jordan Elsen enjoyed quite the homecoming in Wisconsin recently.

After three top-five and six top-10 finishes in the Wisconsin State Open, he finally won that tournament last week at Blackwolf Run in Kohler — an achievement Elsen, 28, called “the biggest professional win that I’ve had thus far.”

Schroeder Invitational

Girls volleyball season opens


The local girls high school volleyball season begins today when Central participates in the Watertown Tournament.

Tremper opens Wednesday at the Burlington Invitational while Indian Trail and St. Joseph face each other and Wilmot starts in the Sheboygan South Tournament on Thursday.

Just for kicks


A total of 55 boys came out for soccer at Bradford this season, which means the Red Devils will be able to field two junior varsity teams this year.

A passion that dates way back


Another high school girls volleyball season that tips off tonight got me thinking a bit to my roots as a reporter.

And it goes back just a few years — 27 to be exact.

Leading Off: There’s hope for Eagles


Fishing from my stream of consciousness:

Christian Life School put its varsity football program on hold this season.

MMQB: The potential to pour it on


Tremper had its first opportunity to showcase its new no-huddle, spread offense on Thursday night in a 48-32 non-conference loss to Lake Geneva Badger at Jaskwhich Stadium.

If the Trojans’ opening-game performance is any indication on the rest of the season, their fans should be in for an exciting campaign.

Local briefs: Junkel claims Women’s City Open

Debbie Junkel shot a final-round 75 Sunday to breeze to the Championship Flight title in the annual Women’s City Open at Washington Park Municipal Golf Course.

Junkel finished the 27-hole tournament, which was shortened to nine holes Saturday because of inclement weather, with a 115 total. Kris Allison (127) carded a 77 Sunday to place a distant second. Jan Thieme (132), only two shots shots off Junkel’s lead after the opening round, took third and Rae Ellen Thompson (135) finished fourth.

MMQB: A good run for Wilmot


The Wilmot football team got its running game on track in the second half, and that helped the Panthers rally for a 21-14 victory over Bradford in the teams’ season opener Friday night at Jaskwhich Stadium.

Lancers pull away


Looking at the final score of Saturday night’s season-opener for St. Joseph, the casual prep football fans might think the Lancers were dominant in every phase of the game against visiting St. Francis.

However, St. Joseph’s 48-14 non-conference victory over the Mariners at Indian Trail’s Jaskwhich Stadium was not perfect.

Local briefs: Junkel on top at Women’s City Open


Debbie Junkel shot a 40 Saturday at Washington Park Municipal Golf Course to take a two-shot lead over Jan Thieme in the Championship Flight of the Women’s City Open.

Inclement weather shortened the first round to nine holes. Today’s final round is scheduled to start at 8 a.m. and be 18 holes.

Another Camp Kenosha story ...


SOMERS — Inside the brutal humidity of the UW-Parkside Sports and Activity Center on Saturday afternoon, Northwestern football coach Pat Fitzgerald was fielding questions from a group of reporters — including me — following the Wildcats’ annual Camp Kenosha scrimmage.

In the midst of responding to an inquiry about using multiple quarterbacks in NU’s spread offense, Fitzgerald calmly removed his ball cap, flipped it to his backhand, quickly edged it toward me and swatted the bottom of my shorts.

Pacers make it look easy


SOMERS — Without the benefit of a preseason scrimmage, there could have been a little rust for the Shoreland Lutheran football team to deal with in its season opener Friday night.

If there was, it certainly didn’t take the Pacers long to shake it off.

Weather derails Indian Trail


The Indian Trail football team couldn’t have asked for a better start.

The finish … well, there wasn’t a finish.
