Story By UWSP Athletics

APPLETON, WI - The UW-Stevens Point baseball team surrendered a late 3-0 lead and suffered its first loss of the NCAA Division III 2013 World Series to Linfield College, 5-3.

The Pointers will play the University of Southern Maine on Monday, May 27 at 12 p.m.

UWSP grabbed an early 1-0 lead when Dan Douglas (East Troy, WI/East Troy), the Pointers' all-time career leader in hits, led off the top of the first inning with a single and moved into scoring position on a single by Ryan Schilter (West Bend, WI/West).

Jimmy Coady (La Crosse, WI/Aquinas) lifted a fly ball to left field as Douglas tagged up and scored on a close play at the plate.

UWSP added to its lead in the seventh inning when Bobby Gregorich (Plover, WI/SPASH) led off with a single up the middle and Brandon Kranz (Waukesha, WI/West) followed with a pinch-hit single of his own.

Clint Rose (Watertown, WI/Watertown) laid down a sacrifice bunt to advance both runners, and Douglas' second hit of the night scored Gregorich.

Schilter hit a sac fly to center field to plate Kranz and put the Pointers up 3-0.

The Wildcats, ranked No. 1 by D3baseball.com, scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh to cut the Pointer lead to 3-2.

An RBI triple by Tim Wilson tied the game 3-3 in the bottom of the eighth inning, and Jake Wylie hit a sac fly to score Wylie and give the Wildcats the lead for good.

UWSP freshman starting pitcher Ben Messenger (Green Bay, WI/Bay Port) allowed only four hits and three earned runs through seven innings.

TOMAHAWK - A Tomahawk man turns his love for logging into woodworking hobby and business.

Wesley Bushor shows and sells woodwork out of his home.

"I don't consider myself an artist. I'm just, I'm a logger who likes to glue sticks together," said Bushor.

Wesley Bushor started working on his wood pieces about 20 years ago.

"Being a logger I come across things all the time that I like in the woods, and I decided I'd start building some basic rustic furniture, and I built a bed. A few weeks later it fell apart, but I was hooked from then on," said Bushor.
 
Bushor's house is his gallery, and you can find his work in every room. The result: a whimsical home that showcases his love for his hobby and trade. He's proud of the work he's done.

EAGLE RIVER - The AMSOIL Eagle River Derbytrack's first-ever ATV & UTV World Championship Derby is in full gear.

Racers say they are impressed with the first-ever event.

"There's been really no ATV races in Wisconsin and for them to have us here and do this event, it's going to be pretty cool," said professional ATV driver Cody Janssen. "I'm pretty excited to be a part of it."

The warm weather is a welcome change to racers like Jay Mittelstaedt, who are used to racing at the annual snowmobile derby in the winter.

"It's really weird because if you've been coming here for however long and it's snow and ice and cold...now the grass is green and there's piles of dirt," Mittelstaedt said. "It's a little different but it's pretty cool."

Racers of all ages and skill dashed around the track.

For many racers and fans, the derby is a family affair.

"My husband took it up when he was a kid, he's been racing for almost 20 years, and we just finally got into it these last few years and thought it would be something for the kids to get into," said parent and racer 
Michele Grant. "And I started three years ago and it's a lot of fun."

Racers want spectators to see a good show.

"That's why I hope that hill is full today and I hope people come out and appreciate how cool this is," Janssen said.

The event continues until the championships on Sunday afternoon.
