Jimmy Rippe

Our Tyler Roth/WKVI Athlete of the Week for this Week is Jimmy Rippe, a member of the Baseball Team at LaCrosse High School.

Jimmy led his team to a 7-2 win over arch-rival South Central and has racked up impressive statistics both pitching and at the plate. Against the Satellites he went the distance on the mound, striking out 5 allowing only 6 scattered hits and walking just one as he gave up only 1 earned run.

On the year, the four-year starter is 2-2 and has struck out 32 batters in 23 innings of work. At the plate he is batting .424 with 8 extra-base hits, including 3 doubles, 2 triples and 3 home runs while driving in 14 runs.

The veteran Senior also played a key role as a member of the Tigers basketball team last Winter.

Jimmy is the son of Jodi and Harry Rippe and will be featured on “Sports Talk with Nathan Welter” Thursday night on WKVI with a featured picture and story on wkvi.com.

Nate Rhodes

Our Tyler Roth/WKVI Athlete of the Week for this week is Nate Rhodes, a member of the Boys Cross Country Team at LaCrosse High School.

Nate advanced to Regional competition with an outstanding performance in the Rensselaer Sectional. Just a Sophomore, Nate turned in his career best time of 17:26, which placed him 8th in the Sectional.

A two-year letter winner, his performance capped an outstanding second year in which he placed 2nd in the 421 Meet and made the Porter County All-Conference Team with a 7th place finish. His Sectional finish made him the first Tiger runner in over 20 years to advance as an individual.

Last year, as a Freshman, Nate led the Tigers to their first team Regional appearance in 13 years.

He also participates in Basketball and Track at LaCrosse.

Nate is the son of Becky and Bob Rhodes and will be featured on “Sports Talk with Nathan Welter” Thursday night on WKVI with photos and a story on the sports tab at wkvi.com!

Congratulations to Nate Rhodes of LaCrosse High School, our Tyler Roth/WKVI Athlete of the Week.

On a beautiful spring day in May, LaCrosse hosted South Central in a PCC softball matchup. The Lady Satellites emerged victorious over the Lady Tigers 14-0. Jessica Sturdy came away with the win for SC, giving up just one run in the complete game victory. The Satellites proved to be too much along the base path, stealing multiple bases throughout the game. The Tigers, meanwhile, showed that they are growing as they were able to hold their own late in the game. It was a battle of experience versus inexperience, and as it usually does, the experience prevailed.
