The first team also includes Clintonville’s Kolin Kubitz, Waupaca’s Jake Reedy and Weyauwega-Fremont’s Tyler Hart (baseball); New London’s Austin Elsner (boys’ golf); Clintonville’s Kyle Petermann (boys’ track); and Iola-Scandinavia’s Shelby Trzebiatowski (girls’ track) and Brianne Huettner (softball). Sommer had a hand in the Bulldogs winning their firstever state softball championship, as the sophomore held Baldwin-Woodville to three
hits June 8 in a 2-1 win in the Division 2 state championship game. Elsner, Petermann, Sotka and Trzebiatowski also had a taste of state competition. Elsner finished tied for 14th in Division 1 at the state boys’ golf meet in Verona, while Petermann, Sotka and Trzebiatowski competed at the State Track and Field Championships in La Crosse. Petermann placed fourth in the Division 2 discus event; Sotka competed in the Division 1 100- and 200-meter dashes; and Trzebiatowski finished 13th in the Division 3 800-meter run.
Meanwhile, Kubitz was named the Eastern Valley Conference’s player of the year in baseball; Block and Huettner shared top softball player honors in the Central Wisconsin 8 Conference; and Hart was named the CWC-8’s player of the year in baseball. Reedy helped lead the Comets to conference and regional championships. The second team consists of Waupaca’s Beau Ash and Joe Nelson (baseball) and Mikaila Johnson (girls’ soccer); Iola-Scandinavia’s Andrew Bauer (boys’ golf) and Brooke Phillips (softball); Weyauwe-
ga-Fremont’s David Niemuth (boys’ golf) and Kelsey Akey (softball); Clintonville’s Turner Doornink (baseball); New London’s Amber Pethke (girls’ track); and Marion’s Brianna Finger (softball). Six of Waupaca County’s seven high schools are represented on the first team. Not only do these athletes stand out in sports, but many of them rank among the top students in their respective class. If you happen to see any of them, congratulate them on the honor. It’s well-deserved.
