An interception in a playoff game is great enough, but a 100-yard pick six is something to brag about. The veteran player made the grab at the goal line and ran it back to put the Eagles within one score when they so desperately needed it. Unfortunately it wouldn’t be enough, as Coleman defeated the Eagles 34-28 in the WIAA Level 3 Division 7 playoff match. Turzinski finished with 689 offensive yards and 10 TDs for the Eagles in their incredibly impressive season.
The running back had another impressive game, putting 132 yards on the ground on 16 carries. Piotrowski ran in four touchdowns in the Falcons’ dominating 48-27 hammering over Southern Door in the WIAA Division 5 state quarterfinal game. The Falcons will look for Piotrowski to continue his dominating trend in their state semifinal showing against unbeaten Arcadia this Friday.
The only area swimmer to earn a spot at state, Raczek finished first in the 50-yard freestyle in 25.03 seconds in the Division 1 girls swimming sectional. Raczek also finished second in the 100 free, and was on the 400 free relay team that finished first with a time of 3:40.23. The Panthers finished second overall as a team. Raczek was also selected by Wisconsin Valley Conference coaches as Swimmer of the Year and earlier in the year made history by breaking a pool record with her teammates on the 400-yard freestyle relay team with a time of 3:44.83.
