5/30/24 WIAA Division 1 Softball Sectional Final: #2 New Richmond 1, #4 Chippewa Falls Lady Cardinals 0

Meeting New Richmond for the third time in 2024, this time in a Sectional Final with a trip to the state tournament on the line, the Lady Cards (24-6, 11-3 Big Rivers Conference) went toe-to-toe with the Tigers (21-3, 12-2 BRC), in a ferocious battle of two incredibly talented teams.

It was a pitchers' duel for the first 5 1/2 innings, as both teams had scoring chances but neither could plate a run. With two outs in the bottom of the 6th, however, New Richmond got a lone run across, which proved to be the difference.

A salute to this year's senior class: Bella Biederman, Briella Bierman, Mykle Buhrow, Kenna Johnston, Katja Maurer, Lakken McEathron, Emma Mcllquham, Olivia Sanborn, and Paige Steinmetz.

Thank you for all you've done for the Lady Cards program! Tradition never graduates.

5/28/24 WIAA Division 4 Softball Sectional Semi-Final: #1 Fall Creek 6, #2 McDonell Lady Macks 3

In another battle of two state-ranked squads, the Lady Macks (20-3, 12-2 Western Cloverbelt Conference) faced a team in the Crickets (27-2, 14-0 WCC) who had handed them their only two losses of the year.

It was a pitchers' duel to start, as no baserunner got beyond first until the bottom of the third inning. That's when Fall Creek broke through with four runs, all with two outs.

The Lady Macks fought back in the top of the fourth, plating three runs of their own.

The veteran Crickets lineup slowly pulled away, however, and McDonell's stellar season came to an end with their first Division 4 tournament ending at the Sectional level.

A salute to this year's incredible senior class: Abby Bresina, Aubrey Dorn, Katie Ruf, and Morgan Wirtz. Thank you for all you've done for the Lady Macks program, for your school, and in our community! You've left an indelible mark, and you will be greatly missed!

5/28/24 WIAA Division 1 Softball Sectional Semi-Final: #4-Chippewa Falls-9 #1-Stevens Point-5

Great pitching and tremendous hitting powered the Lady Cards (24-5) to a 9-5 win over Stevens Point (23-3) and a trip to Thursday's Sectional Final vs. New Richmond.

Freshman Violet McIlquham gave up five runs in 5 1/3 innings and Senior Lakken McEathron shut the door on the Panthers in the final 1 2/3's to get the save. Meanwhile, Senior SS, Kenna Johnston, led the hit parade with three hits including a three-run HR in the 6th to give Chi-Hi a 7-3 lead.

The Lady Cards jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the 1st - scoring all their runs with two outs - and they never trailed or were tied the rest of the game.

5/26/24 CVTW: When Will Eau Claire Hospitals Get The $15 Million They Were Promised?

                                                                 Chippewa Valley This Week


 
Jeff Smith(D-Eau Claire) Jesse James(R-Altoona)


State Senators Jesse James(R-Altoona) and Jeff Smith(D-Eau Claire) offer their take on the ongoing wait for a promised $15 million for Eau Claire's remaining hospitals after the sudden closing of HSHS hospitals in Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls March 22nd. James and other Republicans have taken exception to Gov. Evers' vetoing of a bill they passed intending to help the emergency rooms of the Chippewa Valley's remaining hospitals. Smith says Republicans made this political from the outset by not including area Democrats like himself and State Rep. Jodi Emerson(D-Eau Claire) in the bill. Gov. Evers' changes would've allowed the $15 million to be used for things like OBGYN care and mental health resources. Area GOP rep's took special exception to the Governor's changes because it would've allowed the money to be used outside of Eau Claire and Chippewa county as well.

5/23/24 WIAA Division 4 Softball Regional Final: #2 McDonell Lady Macks 10, #3 Colfax 0 (6 innings)

In a battle of two state-ranked squads, the Lady Macks (20-2, 12-2 Western Cloverbelt Conference) faced a deep and talented lineup in the Vikings (20-4, 14-0 Dunn-St. Croix Conference).

McDonell pitcher Katie Ruf was simply spectacular, striking out a dozen batters before a ball was even put in play - a pop-up which she promptly caught. For the game, the senior allowed just one base runner (via a walk) and struck out 15 Colfax batters in a dominant no-hitter.

At the plate, a number of Lady Macks brought their "A" game, including freshman center fielder Rylie Christenson-Richardson, who went 4 for 4 with two RBIs, and junior left fielder Kendall Hepfler, who finished 3-4 with a pair of doubles as the Lady Macks emphatically earned a Division 4 Regional Championship.

5/23/24 WIAA Division 1 Softball Regional Final: #4 Chippewa Falls-9 #5 Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln-0

Chippewa Falls (23-5) freshman pitcher, Violet McIlquham, struck out nine en route to shutting out Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln (15-9) in the Division 1 Regional Final at Casper Park in Chippewa Falls.

Senior 2B Mykle Buhrow, provided all the offense the Cards would need with her solo home run in the bottom of the 4th. Senior RF Emma McIlquham hit a solo homer to lead off the bottom of the 5th, as Freshman 3B Georgia Romanowski also scored on a passed ball after reaching on a single. The Cards blew the game wide open in the bottom of the 6th with six runs on their way to the win.

Next up is the Division 1 Sectional Semi-Final Tuesday, May 28th, at top-seeded Stevens Point (23-2), who earned their way there with a 5-0 win over Menomonie in the Regional Final.
