Keagan Calchera went 3-for-4 with two doubles, and the Eau Claire Memorial baseball team beat Holmen on the road in nonconference action Tuesday night. Tennessee recruit Tanner Kohlhepp was 2-for-3 with a double and triple, while Draeson Macoux had a double. Western Cloverbelt McDonell 3, Thorp 2: A two-run double by Hayden Baughman capped a three-run first inning that was just enough offense for the Macks. Joe Schwetz gave up just an unearned run over five innings to get the win.

Eau Claire Regis played small ball to come from behind and then rode the slants of Cade Osborn and Luke Rooney to close out. Three runs in the bottom of the fifth got the Ramblers on top in a 6-3 win over Fall Creek in a Cloverbelt Conference opener Tuesday at windy and chilly Bollinger Field. “Mentally, it was a good win,” Regis coach Andy Niese said. “We were down 3-1 against a good pitcher but we were able to put the ball in play using a couple bunts. You could say we
The Eau Claire North girls soccer team held off the mounting pressure for as long as it could. In the end though, Abigail Stow and Memorial were not going to be denied. Stow scored both goals for the Old Abes as they scraped out a 2-1 victory over the Huskies on Tuesday at Memorial. The Abes had a plethora of scoring chances and controlled most of the possession, but for the most part North held them at bay. Memorial outshot the Huskies 17-2, but wasn’t able to convert an

Alex Fischer the observer turned into Alex Fischer the hero. In her previous at-bats against Rice Lake closer Hope Loew, Fischer noticed the flamethrower was jamming her inside. So the Huskies’ clean-up hitter decided to make an adjustment to give herself a chance at extending her long arms. “I changed my stance to be more open,” Fischer said. “I had to step back and open more.” She entered the batter’s box doing just that to begin the bottom of

With its top singles player and top doubles duo returning, the Chippewa Falls boys tennis team has all the pieces in place to build on last season, one in which the Cardinals finished 12-6 in duals and notched a pair of Big Rivers victories. But its a new player — freshman Sean Martin — who will be instrumental in keeping the program headed in the right direction in the years to follow. Second-year coach Brian Flynn is throwing Martin into the thick of things right away, playing
Kayonna Lee is a coach’s dream defensively. Especially if she’s the anchor in the middle of a zone. At 6-feet tall, Lee is quick enough to step out on the perimeter and irritate a guard at the top of the key. She’s also strong enough on the block to square up a taller post player and move her away from the basket. “We just got into a habit of switching everything,” Central Missouri coach Dave Slifer said. “She’d put enough ball pressure on
