Bay Port, Green Bay Notre Dame soccer teams ready for state

GREEN BAY – Two teams, one goal.

The Bay Port and Green Bay Notre Dame girls soccer teams have the same idea in mind while preparing for the WIAA state tournament this week at Uihlein Soccer Park in Milwaukee.  

Both Fox River Classic Conference programs are good enough to win a gold ball, and instead of downplaying that expectation, the Pirates and Tritons are embracing it.

Bay Port (22-1) earned the No. 2 seed for the Division 1 tournament and will play No. 3 Kettle Moraine (10-2-5) in a state semifinal at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Notre Dame (15-5-1) also earned a No. 2 seed in D3 and will play No. 3 Belleville/New Glarus (18-0-1) in a semifinal at 7 p.m. Friday.

The Pirates are at state for the second straight season, while the Tritons are on the big stage for the third time in the last four.

“I’d say for us seniors it is very exciting, but at the same time we know there are no more chances after this, so there is a little bit of pressure as well,” said Notre Dame forward and Michigan Tech recruit Grace Shaw, who was the FRCC player of the year for the third straight season. “Because most of the upperclassmen have been here before, I don’t think we are as nervous as we have been in the past and are really more excited to fulfill a dream we’ve been waiting to achieve for the past four years.

Longtime Bayport-Blue Point parade participant crowned grand marshal

Ramsey happily agreed. The parade stretches down Montauk Highway from Bayport to Blue Point, and he was set up on a stage at the end of the route. Ramsey would speak before crowds of Long Islanders, talking about the floats, performers and organizations as they marched along.

Ramsey’s booming baritone is attention-grabbing, making him an ideal fit for the job. But he said it took him two or three years to get over his stage fright.

“I guess it was the third year, I realized that very few people actually hear me because of the wind and everything else and being outdoors, the sound just blows away,” he said. “And I realized that the people in front of me and the people over across the street in the stands, they’re the only ones that hear me. Therefore, it really didn’t matter too much what I said! And if I made a mistake, I made a mistake.”

But he never missed out the St. Patrick’s Day festivities. “It’s my one chance a year for two or three hours to be a big ham,” he said with a laugh.
