Coleman Beats Crivitz to Clinch M&O Crown

Coleman remained undefeated on the M&O Conference slate with an 11-1 win over Crivitz on Monday.
The Cougars scored four runs in the first and one in the second and never looked back.
Courtney DenRuyter pitched all five innings, allowing one earned run on one hit and four walks, striking out 11. When she gets a lead, she’s tough to come back against, Crivitz coach Justin Pusick said.
“When she gets ahead, she’s a tough pitcher to deal with, then every time we threatened, she pitched really good pitches and struck batters out,” he said. “We were confident coming in, but when she gets on a roll, she pitches really good with a lead, pitching downhill. You can tell her confidence builds, and we needed to change the momentum somehow in that game and couldn’t come up with the spark to do it.”
Hitting leadoff, DenRuyter was 2-4 with three runs scored. Rachel Terp had a double and three walks, scoring three times from the two spot and Annabell Markiewicz was 2-3 with a triple, two runs, two RBIs, and a walk from the third spot.
Alyssa Hoida was 3-3 with a double, a run and two RBIs and Ava Podoski was 1-4 with three RBIs. Shakira Marks went 1-3 with two RBIs.
The Cougars made three errors in the game, but when DenRuyter’s locked in and the bats are rolling, they’re tough to beat.
“We got our bats going right away, which helped. This group can hit the ball really well, so even if we’re a little shaky in the defensive part of it, our bats more than make up for it, so it gives us a little bit of room,” Coleman coach Jean LeVash said.

Den Ruyter No Hits
Hornets in Cougar
Doubleheader Sweep

Courtney DenRuyter spun two no-hitters as the Coleman Cougars beat Gillett/Suring 4-0 and 12-0 in Thursday’s doubleheader.
DenRuyter was nearly perfect in both games. In game one, she walked just three of the 24 batters she faced and set 19 down on strikes.
At the dish, she was 1-3 with a run scored as part of a four-run third inning, punctuated by a two-RBI double from Annabell Markiewicz, who was 3-3 with a run scored and two RBIs.
Alyssa Hoida was 2-3 in the game and Ava Podoski was 1-3 with a run and an RBI.
Gillett’s Autumn Dryja was solid in the circle, allowing four runs (one earned) in six innings, but she took a tough defeat against an unhittable DenRuyter.
Game two wasn’t nearly as close, in part due to DenRuyter’s pitching once again. She pitched six no-hit innings, striking out 13 and walking three.
She went 3-3 with two runs and three RBIs in that game as well.
Markiewicz was 2-4 with two runs, Podoski was 2-4 with a run, Alyssa Kurth went 2-3 with three runs and an RBI, Hoida was 2-3 with two runs and an RBI, and Cameron Zeitler was 2-3 with a run and three RBIs.

Bulldogs Slip Past
Cougars in Non-
Conference Matchup

Peshtigo beat Coleman 2-0 on Tuesday, handing the Cougars just their second loss of the season and their first in over a month.
Bethany Ahrens was nearly untouchable in the circle, striking out 17 of the 23 batters she faced and allowing just two hits. She did not walk or hit a batter.
Courtney DenRuyter also struck out 18 Bulldog batters, but she allowed two runs on three hits and three walks and was served the loss.
It took until the sixth inning for the Bulldog bats to get to DenRuyter. With one out, Allison Peters singled and Nevaeh Russell walked before Bethany Ahrens singled in Peters for the lead.
Coleman would work out of the jam, but Rylie Ellie singled in Jaci Tonn to make it 2-0 in the top of the seventh, and the way Ahrens was pitching, that would be plenty, as she forced three groundouts in the bottom of the inning to seal the win.
Ahrens and Ellie were each 1-3 with an RBI and Peters was 1-4 with a run. Ava Podoski had both of the Coleman hits.
Peshtigo is a No. 1 seed in Division 3, awaiting either No. 9 Northland Pines or No. 8 Clintonville for the Bulldogs’ playoff opener on Tuesday.
The Bulldogs finished the regular season undefeated and won the Packerland Conference.
Coleman is a No. 2 seed in D4. The Cougars play No. 7 Shiocton at home on Tuesday.

Marines Stall Truckers
in NEC Contest 6-2

The Marinette Marines staked themselves to a 5-0 lead after one inning and held on to their advantage to beat Clintonville 6-2 on Thursday.
After the leadoff batter was retired, Barrett Cole was hit by a pitch and Cienna Grawey walked. Peyton Berman singled to load the bases and Wynn Erdman brought in two with a single.
After an error and fielder’s choice, Lauryn Pelon hit a two-out, three-RBI double to make it 5-0.
Erdman and Brianna Adamski split the pitching duties, with Erdman throwing four no-hit innings to start off and Adamski allowing two runs (one earned) over the final three innings.
The Marines put three on in the second but didn’t get much going for the rest of the game, except for when Cole smoked a solo home run in the sixth for an insurance run.
“We put five up in the first and then we just couldn’t keep our weight back and we just popped everything up,” Marinette coach Scott MacIntyre said. “They made the plays and it was nice to see both Bri and Wynn pitch tonight to get more innings for both of them, then Barrett got a little power at the end.”
The win made it three straight for the Marines on the week after wins over Denmark and Little Chute.
“As a coaching staff, we preach that you’ve got to be ready to go at the end of May,” MacIntyre said. “That’s where you want to be. You want to be winning at this time and you want to get hot.”

Blue Devils Blast
Vikings 19-0

Oconto continued to tune up for playoff competition with a 19-0 win over Gibraltar/Washington Island on Friday.
Addisyn Viestenz reached base and scored four runs for the Blue Devils, including one in the first inning that kick-started a 10-run frame for Oconto.
Annika Schlueter did the pitching for the Blue Devils, facing two over the minimum in three scoreless innings.
Gibraltar/Washington Island is a young team, Oconto coach Blake Jersey said.
“They’re going through growing pains. It’s tough to be on both ends of a game like that but they battled hard, we had some good hits,” he said. “A lot of our kids that don’t get a lot of at-bats at the varsity level got some decent swings, and we got to work on our base-running as well.”
The Blue Devils earned a No. 6 seed in the playoffs and face No. 3 Iola-Scandinavia on the road Tuesday for their first postseason game.
