Softball Coaches Award Season and All-Conference Recognition

Coach Erin Hulse and her assistant coaches handed out Season and All-Conference awards and gave season-ending remarks at the MLHS Spring Athletics Awards Night last Monday.

The Lancer girls fastpitch softball team ended the season with a 4-6 record in Big East, which put them at 6th out of 11 teams in the conference. They had a 4-11 overall record.

Coach Hulse commented, "Our record doesn’t quite reflect the talent and ability. We hung in there with a lot of good teams – taking all games but one to 7 innings. One game was 8 innings as we came back from behind in the bottom of the 7th. We played schools like Random Lake and Brillion really tough."

"(The team was) a great group that got along well and knew how to have fun. I will miss the senior leadership of the five seniors but am looking forward to the future as well. (We have) a lot of great players coming up as well!"

Earning All-Conference recognition by the coaches of the Big East conference were juniors Jenna Lischka - position player (1st team) and Sam Siehr - catcher (2nd team), and senior pitcher Aubry Schleis (Honorable Mention). Senior Jenna Gries was given the Lancer Award by the Lancer coaches for her Christian leadership on the team.  Announced as Defensive MVP was Aubry Schleis, whose ability to pitch strikes consistently gave the team defense a good start, while Jenna Lischka was awarded Offensive MVP, leading the team with a .481 batting average and a team-leading 26 hits and 2 strikeouts for 54 at bats.

Our JV softball team went 1-8-1 on the season, but really only one of those games was against a true JV team. Winning the JV Lancer Award was Emily Uhlhorn for her positive attitude, willingness and extra work she put in to learn the catcher position.

Congratulations, Lancer softball athletes, on all the hard work and growth you experienced this season as you represented your Lord and your faith on the field!

Boys and Girls Track Athletes Receive Season and All-Conference Honors

Head Coach Abbey Bubolz summed up the Lancer track and field season at the MLHS Spring Athletics Awards Night held this past Monday, and the track and field coaches also gave season awards to their athletes.

Some notes from Coach Bubolz about the boys team: "We had 23 boys; 18 new to track. They had a lot to learn about track...the best example of their patience and persistence paying off was at Regionals where they beat half the field to take 6th out of 12 teams. Also all four relays ran season best times at Regionals. (Athletes on) the boys' team came from different sports and had to find their track team identity, and they were able to do that. I did not name captains at the start of the season, (but instead) I brought them up at Awards Night to honor the kids who took that role. On the boys' side Chase Loeh did a good job of bringing the whole team together through a mix of humor and also hard work. Shawn Egerer quietly led the boys -- he was the one they looked to for direction with his 4 years of experience."

Senior Sho Fukasawa was named the boys' MVP; he earned 103.75 total points at meets throughout the season. He was followed point-wise by senior Shawn Egerer, and juniors Kaden Hagenow, Caleb Uhlhorn, and Seth Ciha. The top freshman point earner was Ryder Vogt and the top sophomore point earner was Kaeden Storzer. The boys' Lancer award went to senior Chase Loeh for his positive attitude and willingness to help the team anywhere that was needed. 

Sho Fukasawa also earned All-Conference honors by finishing in 2nd place in the Long Jump at the Big East Conference meet.

Letterwinners: seniors Sho Fukasawa, Chase Loeh, and Shawn Egerer; juniors Aiden Wagner, Caleb Uhlhorn, and Kaden Hagenow; sophomores Kaeden Storzer and Jon Thoma; and freshmen Jacob Kanzenbach, Ryder Vogt, and Joey Ungemach.

Lancer boys track athletes receiving All-Conference, MVP, or Captains Awards are Chase Loeh, Shawn Egerer, and Sho Fukasawa.

Coach Bubolz's season-ending notes on the girls team: 

"Our Conference Meet championship was a highlight of the season. The amount of pieces that had to fall into place and the effort of all the girls involved came together on the right day to make school history. We followed that up with a Regional championship (2nd year in a row) and then a 4th place at Sectionals and 8th place at State to complete a phenomenal girls' season. The girls did a great job of being willing to try events and run things at Conference to help the team. They were focused and worked hard the entire season. Led by captains (again announced as an award at the Awards Night) Isabella Blauert quietly behind the scenes did a lot with the relays, working with brand new underclassmen. The other girls' captain was Brooklyn Luebke. She made sure the girls knew what was going on when and kept the team morale high."

Announced as girls' MVP was senior Emily Marohn, who earned one of the highest track and field point totals in school history - 269.5 points. She was followed point-wise by seniors Brooklyn Luebke and MonRaye Ermis, junior Isabella Blauert, and senior Emma Kolar. The top freshman point earner was Maren Dewane and top sophomore point earner was Peyton Luebke.

Bubolz and her assistant coaches awarded the girls' Lancer award to Brooklyn Luebke for "taking the initiative to help her teammates. She also showed great sportsmanship on the track, waiting until every girl in her race had finished to congratulate them."

Earning All-Conference recognition because of their first-place finishes at the Big East Conference Meet were Brooklyn Luebke in the 800m, 1600m, and 3200m; MonRaye Ermis in the shot put and discus; and Emily Marohn in the triple jump.

2nd Place All-Conference recognition goes to Emily Marohn in the long jump; the 4x200m relay athletes Isabella Blauert, Peyton Luebke, Maren Dewane, and freshman Bitsy Blauert; and the 4x400m relay athletes sophomore Taylor Schuettpelz, Maren Dewane, Bitsy Blauert, and freshman Addie Korte. 

Additionally, Brooklyn Luebke and MonRaye Ermis were chosen from among all athletes at the Conference Meet as Female Track Athlete of the Meet (Luebke) and Female Field Athlete of the Meet (Ermis).

Four new school records were set this season, and each of these seniors received plaques to commemorate this since they are holding these records as they graduate from MLHS: Emily Marohn, Triple Jump, 36' 10.75"; MonRaye Ermis, Shot Put, 39' 3.5"; and Brooklyn Luebke, 1600m, 5:16.24, and 3200m, 11:21.75.

Letterwinners: seniors Emily Marohn, Emma Miller, Emma Kolar, Brooklyn Luebke, MonRaye Ermis, Grace Zander, Katie Ungemach, and Taylor Keesling; juniors Isabella Blauert and Lizzy Kolar; sophomores Peyton Luebke and Taylor Schuettpelz; and freshmen Maren Dewane, Selah Schulz, Ginevra Ermis, Addie Korte, Trisha Kiss, Bitsy Blauert, and Bella Flores.

The track coaches also celebrated their 4-year seniors: Emma Kolar, Brooklyn Luebke, MonRaye Ermis, Grace Zander, Katie Ungemach, Taylor Keesling, and Shawn Egerer.

Congratulations to the Lancer track and field athletes for their awesome season, bringing glory to their Lord in all that they did!
