MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield Post 54 American Legion baseball team split a Wisconsin Valley Legion League doubleheader with Merrill on Thursday night, winning 18-3 and losing 7-6, at Jack Hackman Field.

Marshfield has now lost three of four games and are 7-3 overall and 5-3 in the WVLL.

Game 1 was a make-up from Wednesday’s scheduled game at Merrill that was rained out.

The Blue Devils jumped on Merrill with a nine-run second inning and put the game away with a seven-run sixth, ending the first game via the 10-run rule.

Jacob Neve scattered 11 hits to earn the complete-game victory, and all nine starters for Marshfield reached base and either scored or drove in at least one run. Logan Jakobi led the way, going 4-for-5 with three RBIs and two runs scored.

In Game 2, Marshfield led 3-1 after five innings, but Merrill scored six times in the sixth to take the lead.

The Blue Devils chipped away to cut the deficit to 7-4 entering the seventh and had one more rally in them.

Jake Brueggen led off with a single and Connor Jasurda doubled to start the inning. Jared Johnsrud grounded out to score pinch runner Dom Wichlacz, and Austin Palacek it a sacrifice fly to plate Jasurda, but Merrill was able to get the final out to secure the victory.

Marshfield will take part in the La Crosse Legion Tournament this weekend, playing two games Friday and two more Saturday.

Shot clock coming to Wisconsin high school basketball

STEVENS POINT – The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) Board of Control voted at its meeting on June 22 to implement a 35-second shot clock for varsity high school basketball games beginning in the 2019-20 season.

Wisconsin will become the ninth state to have a shot clock for high school basketball.

While the reaction has been mixed from fans on social media, Marshfield High School girls basketball coach Heidi Michaelis said she was in favor of the change.

“I think it’s good for the game,” said Michaelis, who has a 293-90 record in 16 seasons at the helm. “It doesn’t really change my philosophy, although I have been known to grind out long possessions at the end of the game. It takes that ability away, but I think it keeps the game moving and exciting.

“Most of the time, I like playing faster anyway, so it doesn’t change much. Realistically, turnovers occur anyway during long possessions.”

Marshfield High School Athletic Director Nathan Delany said the process began with a recommendation by the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association to implement the shot clock beginning in the 2018-19 season. The idea first went to the Coaches committee, which voted in favor of it unanimously, then went to a pair of advisory boards that voted against it. The Board of Control has the final say and voted 6-4 for it during last week’s annual June meeting.

The implementation was pushed back a year, to 2019-20, to give member schools more time to find funds for the new equipment and to adequately train staff to run the clock.

The placement of the clocks has yet to be finalized, and Delany said he did not know if it would be required to be in a certain spot at all gyms.

Delany said his early estimate for the cost is approximately $3,500, and he would like to have everything in place by the end of the 2018-19 season so that the Marshfield teams and coaches can have access to it during the summer of 2019.

“Some smaller schools have expressed concerns with the cost and having to have another person trained at the scoring table, which is an ongoing cost,” Delany said. “I think it will both help and hurt the game. It should make for more fluid games and better basketball. I don’t necessarily disagree with some of that. It should bring more flow to games. But some teams, based on talent, have to play a certain way (more deliberate).

“I think there will be more blowouts and eliminate teams that are methodical and want to slow it down. I thought a 45-second clock would have been perfect, allowing teams to work through the clock if that’s the way they play.”

The addition of the shot clock will be the second major change to the game in Wisconsin, as high school games went to 18-minute halves, rather than 8-minute quarters, beginning in the 2015-16 season. That rule change was designed to improve the flow of the game and eliminate teams holding on to the ball for long periods at the end of quarters. The shot clock will no doubt do that as well, changing strategy for a lot of teams.

Marshfield varsity boys basketball coach Scott Scheuer said he doesn’t see it being a problem for the way he coaches, stating that by looking at some tape from last season, the Tigers typically averaged between 24 and 26 seconds to put up a shot.

“That varies from year to year, depending on who is playing, and who you are playing,” said Scheuer, who led the Tigers to a 30-18 combined record the past two seasons, including an appearance in the WIAA Division 1 sectional semifinals last year. “We’ve (coaches) been talking about it for a while. I don’t know if it improves the game. Teams that aren’t as talented are at a disadvantage and I think there will be more lopsided games. The quality coaches will still be quality coaches and will figure it out.”

Other decisions made by the WIAA Board of Control concerning winter sports included: seeding the boys and girls basketball, boys hockey, and team wrestling state tournaments by the participating coaches beginning in the 2017-18 season; and to further discussion on a basketball tournament placement model that would categorize teams into “city”, “suburban”, “town”, and “rural” that could shake up placements in Divisions 3-5; a two-year experiment for having two divisions for the boys hockey playoffs and state tournament beginning in 2020.

SOFTBALL
Conference champion Spencer had seven players selected to the 2017 All-Cloverbelt Conference East Division Softball Team, with four first-team selections.

Seniors Jenna Schober, Katie Fleischman and Cinnamin Harwood, along with sophomore pitcher Tiffany Meinders were first-team picks for Spencer, which won its third-straight Cloverbelt East championship with a perfect 14-0 record.

Schober batted .414 with 21 RBIs, Harwood had a team-high 26 runs scored while batting .455, and Meinders hit .404 with a team-best 32 RBIs and two home runs. Meinders also pitched all but 11 innings for the Rockets this season, compiling a 13-3 record with a 1.81 earned-run average and 99 strikeouts in 81 innings.

Senior Courtney Buss, and juniors Lexi Baehr and Sadie Mercier were second-team selections for the Rockets.

Mercier led the Rockets in batting with a .482 average and scored 25 runs, Baehr had one home run and 17 RBIs, and Buss hit .348 with 19 runs scored and 12 RBIs.

“We had a very good season overall,” Spencer coach Jason Gorst said. “I was really proud of all of our girls. Tiffany was certainly one of the best players in the conference. The combination of her pitching and hitting really was remarkable. Jenna, Cinnamin and Katie all really came through to have big senior seasons. This was the first time we have had four players make first team. Courtney Buss also had another great season to finish out a stellar career, and Sadie and Lexi will be back along with Tiffany to lead a promising team in 2018.”

Marshfield Columbus Catholic’s lone all-conference representative was sophomore Maren Seefluth, who was a second-team choice.

Seefluth hit .471 (16-for-34) with 11 runs scored and eight RBIs.

“I witnessed before the season got underway that Maren Seefluth acted like a very confident player in her ability,” Columbus Catholic coach Arnie Neubauer said. “I was proud of how she carried it onto the field of play for the Dons. I stressed during the season to Maren that she has the next level ability in her arsenal and she performed to that level in conference play. I’m very happy how she executed the new style I was applying to get the best out of her ability.”

Greenwood junior Kaylee Learman was named the conference’s Player of the Year after an impressive campaign in which she was named the Wisconsin Softball Coaches Association Division 5 State Player of the Year.

Learman hit a whopping .727 (48-for-66) with 16 home runs, 53 RBIs and 54 runs scored. In addition to her hit total, she was walked 30 times and had an on-base percentage of .783 and a slugging percentage of 1.742.

MARSHFIELD – It was a rough night for the Marshfield Post 54 American Legion baseball team.

Marshfield led 1-0 after two innings before the Stevens Point Post 6 offense erupted for 18 runs over the next four innings and rolled to a 19-8 victory in a Wisconsin Valley Legion League contest Tuesday night at Jack Hackman Field.

The loss is Marshfield’s second in a row and the Blue Devils fall to 6-2 overall and 4-2 in league play.

Walker Wuethrich walked and scored on an error to give Marshfield a 1-0 lead after two innings.

From there it was all Sixers. Stevens Point scored five runs in the third, chasing Marshfield starter Jake Brueggen, who was uncharacteristically hit hard, allowing seven hits in just 2 1/3 innings of work.

Jared Johnsrud entered and got the Blue Devils out of further trouble in the third, but then was hit hard himself in the fourth as Point plated three more runs, two on an RBI single by Legend Kieleszewski and another on a groundout.

Austin Palacek had an RBI double in the fourth to bring Marshfield to within five at 8-3 before the Sixers scored two more in the fifth on a bases-loaded walk and an RBI single by Brady Franz.

Johnsrud had an RBI single in the fifth and Jared Klein scored on a wild pitch to again give Marshfield a glimmer of hope, cutting the deficit to 10-5, but the Sixers were unstoppable against Blue Devils reliever Connor Berry in the sixth.

Stevens Point scored eight times on seven hits in the sixth, sending 12 batters to the plate. Josh Morton had a two-run single and Zach Zimmerman drove in two runs with a pair of RBI singles in the inning, putting the Sixers on top 18-5.

Marshfield scored its final runs in the sixth thanks to three bases-loaded walks.

Point finished with 20 hits, all singles, including four each from Isaac Perner and Zimmerman. Morton had three hits and three RBIs, and Kieleszewski had four RBIs in the win for the Sixers.

Ryan Krueger and Connor Jasurda each had two hits for the Blue Devils.

Next up for Marshfield is a home-and-home with Merrill. The Blue Devils play at Merrill on Wednesday and at home against them on Thursday. Marshfield will then play four games in two days at the La Crosse Tournament on Friday and Saturday.

Chaparrals baseball shut out at Everest

SCHOFIELD- – For the third time this season, the Marshfield Chaparrals were held scoreless as they dropped a Dairyland League amateur baseball game to the Everest Merchants 3-0 on Saturday night at Simon Field.

After dropping games to Westboro 2-0 on June 4 and Eau Claire 8-0 on June 8, the Chaparrals were back to their scoring drought on Saturday, a fact not lost on manager Justin Rayburn.

“Again, our pitching was strong,” Rayburn said. “Bobby (Pilz), Drew (Spaeth) and Noah (Panzer) all pitched good enough to win. We just need timely hitting.”

The Chaps (4-5, 2-4 Dairyland League) had chances early in the game, getting three hits in each of the first two innings, but came away scoreless as they stranded five base runners, and nine overall in the game.

After that it was all Everest pitching as starter Heinrich Walder went seven innings and reliever Bryce Hines the final two. Hines didn’t allow any hits and Walder just two after the second inning.

Pilz, the Chaparrals starter, kept the Merchants scoreless until the fifth. He got bit by the base on balls surrendering an unearned run after an inning opening error and then three walks. The Merchants led 1-0.

Two more walks by Pilz and an infield error set the table for an RBI single by Matt Witter, chasing Pilz after 5 1/3 innings and trailing 3-0. Spaeth relieved Pilz and threw four pitches, the last one coaxing a double play groundball.

The Chaps went quietly after that going down 1-2-3 in both the seventh and eighth innings. Cale Cuddie walked in the ninth in between two pop ups to the first baseman and a game ending strikeout.

Panzer pitched two scoreless innings in relief and Sam Schwanebeck led the Chaps with a pair of singles.

The Chaparrals host the Waupaca Lakemen at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at n Jack Hackman Field.
