MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield baseball team lost three straight games over the weekend at the Marshfield Invitational.

The Tigers lost to Appleton West 3-2 on Friday, then dropped a pair of Saturday, losing a close pitchers’ duel to Holmen 2-0 and falling to Janesville Parker 9-6.

Alex Steines took the hard-luck loss against Appleton West, pitching a complete game. Austin Littmann, Nick Treankler, Seth Karl and Steines each had two hits for the Tigers.

Tanner Dennis-Brown suffered the loss in a complete-game effort on Saturday against Holmen.

In the loss to Parker, Luke Wirtz, Calob Alexander and Karl each had a pair of hits for Marshfield.

The Tigers learned their postseason seeding Monday, coach Mark Zee said. Marshfield (13-11) earned a No. 3 seed and will play the winner of Eau Claire North (9-9) and Menomonie (7-13) in a WIAA Division 1 regional final on Thursday, May 31, at Jack Hackman Field. The complete brackets will be officially announced later in the week.

Marshfield (8-2 Wisconsin Valley Conference) will play for the conference championship on Tuesday when it hosts Stevens Point (16-6, 9-2 WVC) at 4:30 p.m. at Jack Hackman Field. With a win, the Tigers assure themselves of at least a share of the Valley title, which would be the first in school history. Stevens Point would clinch its nine conference title in the past 13 seasons with a victory.

MARSHFIELD – D.C. Everest pitcher Brooke Gajewski proved unhittable for four innings and a pair of Marshfield errors proved costly as the Evergreens cruised to a 10-0 win in Wisconsin Valley Conference softball action Thursday at the Marshfield Fairgounds.

Gajewski struck out the first eight batters she faced and allowed just one hit – a one-out single to Katie Treankler in the fifth innings – to earn the win. She finished with 11 strikeouts and walked one for the Evergreens (12-7, 6-4 Wisconsin Valley Conference).

Marshfield (4-14, 2-8 WVC) didn’t get a batter on base until Kelsey Kuehnhold reached on an error with one out in the fifth. Treankler followed with the Tigers’ only hit and Jessi Lyon loaded the bases on Gajewski’s lone walk, but Gajewski got her 11th strikeout and a fly out to center field to end the game, which was Marshfield’s home finale.

“We made a few nice plays to get out of some innings and I was proud of the way, down 10-0, that finally broke up the perfect game and Katie getting a hit to break up the no-hitter,” Marshfield coach Mike Voss said. “We didn’t give up and kept swinging. She (Gajewski) pitched a heck of a game for the first four innings.”

Everest scored twice in the first and three more times in the second inning thanks in part to two costly Marshfield errors.

Rachel Bauman led off the game with an infield single and moved all the way to third on a throwing error. Alayna Krejci followed with a sacrifice fly and Tori Wilke knocked in a run with a single to give the Evergreens a 2-0 lead.

Hollie Locher had an RBI infield single in the second and an error with two outs in the second allowed two more runs to score, putting Everest up 5-0.

Marshfield played errorless ball the rest of the game, but the Everest bats plated five more runs – one in the third on an RBI single by Lauren Anklam and four more in the fourth when it had six hits.

“They are a type of team, that slaps at the ball while hitting, and that’s something we’re not used to seeing,” Voss said. “But a ground ball is still a ground ball and we have to make the play and get the outs. We got off to a bad start and I think we got frustrated at the plate, then it carried over back to the field.”

Wilke finished 3-for-4 with two RBIs, and Bauman, Locher and Dani Obermeier each had two hits for the Evergreens.

The Tigers wrap up the regular season with games at Stevens Point on Tuesday and at Wausau West on May 24.

MARSHFIELD – D.C. Everest controlled the ball the vast majority of the second half and held off a late rally by Marshfield to beat the Tigers 3-2 in a Wisconsin Valley Conference girls soccer game on Senior Day on Tuesday at Griese Park.

Emily Wolfe scored on a breakaway with 4:30 left to get the Tigers within a goal at 3-2, but Marshfield only briefly had the ball in the Everest zone during those final minutes and couldn’t get another shot on goal.

Everest stays in the Wisconsin Valley Conference race with a 7-1-1 record (12-4-4 overall), while the Tigers fall to 11-5-2 and 5-5 in the Valley.

“D.C. Everest just dominated us in the second half and we only let in one goal, and that’s a tribute to the defense,” Marshfield coach Steve Lindner said. “It is frustrating, but at the same time we had some bright spots. Emily Wolfe had an outstanding game and had that late goal to give us a chance.

“We had some nice attacks in the first half and just couldn’t get anything going against the wind in the second half. D.C. Everest was just a step quicker.”

Gretchen Murphy scored 9:56 into the game and Elise Thuot added another goal at the 14:19 mark to give the Evergreens a quick 2-0 lead.

Mardie Shanahan cut the lead in half with a goal, off an assist from Alison Gruen, at the 28:58 mark and the 2-1 deficit held until the second 20 minutes of the second half.

Kayla Huber netted a goal at 66:03 to push Everest’s lead to 3-1 before Wolfe again brought the Tigers within a goal.

Despite the loss, Lindner said he is happy with the way the Tigers have been playing and the position they have put themselves in with the playoffs coming up in two weeks.

“Our goal is to get ready for the playoffs and do real well, and do a little better than last year,” Lindner said. “That means probably playing Everest again and trying to get over that hump. We’ve played ourselves into a decent seed and we’re gearing up to play in the playoffs.”

Marshfield has the rest of the week off and will wrap up its regular season with road games at Stevens Point on May 22 and at Wisconsin Rapids on May 24.

Evergreens 3, Tigers 2
D.C. Everest 2 1 – 3

WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Marshfield smacked 16 hits and rode the arm of junior Bo Howard as it downed Wisconsin Rapids 11-0 in a Wisconsin Valley Conference baseball game Tuesday.

Howard tossed a five-inning two-hitter, striking out six and walking three, to improve his record to 6-1 this season and help the Tigers (13-7, 8-1 Wisconsin Valley Conference) keep pace with Stevens Point in the conference standings. Howard also went 3-for-4 with two doubles and three RBIs at the plate for Marshfield.

“I’m really happy with our approach at the plate today,” Marshfield coach Mark Zee said. “We were patient and were swinging at strikes. It really paid off for us.”

Nick Treankler also went 3-for-4 and Austin Littmann, Daulton Varsho, Luke Wirtz and Seth Karl each added two hits for the Tigers.

Marshfield plays at D.C. Everest on Thursday and wraps up the regular season with five home games in seven days, starting the games against Appleton West on Friday and Holmen and Janesville Parker on Saturday in the annual Marshfield Invitational.
