Wausaukee Heads To Sectional

Knocks Off Florence And Suring

For D-5 Regional Honors; Meets

Top Ranked NEW Lutheran Thurs.




Thanks to a pair of post-season victories, the Wausaukee Rangers stayed alive along the tournament trail after capturing their first regional title since 2000. Coach John Ranallo’s hardwood hustlers routed Florence 56-27 in the Division 5 semifinals Friday before holding off a late Suring charge to claim the title 52-48 Saturday.

The lone TIMESland team left standing, the Rangers will put their 22-3 record on the line Thursday night in a sectional semifinal clash against top ranked NEW Lutheran of Green Bay (23-1) at BayPort High School. Tip-off is slated for 7pm with the winner advancing to the sectional final on Saturday against the Marshfield Columbus Catholic and Wausau Newman survivor.

“We’ll have our hands full with NEW. We need to make every possession count and take care of the ball. We are looking forward to the challenge,” Ranallo said. “Looking back on the year we were really close to being a one loss team. Thought we could have beat Peshtigo the second time around and should not have lost to Crandon. All in all it has been a successful season.”

The last time Wausaukee earned a sectional berth came in 2000 under the direction of legendary coach Gene Pieper. Leading the charge for the Rangers were Tim Tracy, Garrett Roush, Matt Polomis, Nathan Malek and Stephen Stumbris. The 2000 Rangers enjoyed plenty of tournament success earning a trip to state and finishing second. Wausaukee knocked off Clayton 53-45 in the semifinals before falling to Cassville in the championship clash.

Elsewhere in Division 5 action, STAA leveled Gillett 56-34 Friday before falling to highly touted NEW Lutheran 78-48 in the title game Saturday.

Rangers Rout

Florence 56-27


With Aaron Schlies and Beau DeLaet finishing in double figure scoring, the Rangers routed visiting Florence in the semifinals Friday 56-27. Schlies poured in a game high 16 points, 10 coming in the second half while DeLaet added 8 of his 10 points over the final two frames.

After claiming a 9-7 first quarter lead, highlighted by a three from Russell Smith, the Rangers padded the cushion to 22-11 by halftime. Zach Orlando dialed in from behind the arc and added a jumper while Schlies chipped in with a bucket and two free throws.

Schlies continued to keep the Rangers afloat in the third quarter with 6 more points, including a trey, while DeLaet also drilled a three pointer for a 35-23 spread.

Over the final 8 minutes, it was all Wausaukee by a 21-4 edge to win going away. Brennnen Gabriel canned a trey, DeLeat hit 3 free throws and a jumper for 5 points, Schlies added two buckets, Smith a trio of charity shots while Eric Arndt and James Kramer both went 2-2 on free throws.

Defensively the Rangers kept Florence’s Connor Beaster in check, limiting the pivot ace to 11 points while Lukas Gareau added 7.

“Aaron and Beau had nice offensive games but the key was playing great defense on Beaster. Russell Smith and Austin Guarniere did a nice job guarding him and held him to 4 field goals in the game,” Wausaukee coach John Ranallo said.

Wausaukee Slips

Past Suring 52-48

For Regional Title

Defeating a team three times in one season is tough, but the Rangers managed to do that with a 52-48 championship win over Suring Saturday. Wausaukee dominated the first half and owned a 35-23 lead at intermission. Things got a little tighter over the final 16 minutes as Suring tried to rally with a 25-17 scoring surge.

“We played a nice first half, but got a little stagnant on offense in the second half,” Ranallo said. “This was a great win for our program. Orlando carried us in the first half, Schlies the second while Beau DeLaet hit some big shots in the fourth quarter.”

Schlies tallied 20 points and 3 rebounds in the title win, 13 of those coming in the second half. Orlando hit on four treys for 14 points, DeLaet added 7 points and 5 assists while James Kramer scored 5 points.

Orlando hit on three shots from behind the arc in the first quarter to key an 18-9 opening run. Schlies added plenty of help with a trio of baskets and a three point shot.

Tyler Fisher fired in 6 of his 14 points in the quarter for Suring.

The Rangers continued to make their way to the hoop in period two, tacking on a 17-14 edge to lead 35-23. Orlando connected on another long range bomb and added a bucket while Kramer went 3-3 on free throws and hit a layup.

Suring senior guard Dillon Kempen kept his mates close with 8 points, including a trio of jumpers and John Horst added 4.

Slowing the tempo down in the third quarter, Suring used a 9-6 run to get within 41-32. Fisher struck for three baskets while Creo VanBellinger added a trey.

Schlies was the lone scoring option for the Rangers, making a pair of baskets and two free throws.

With their season on the line, Suring didn’t go down without a fight. In fact the Eagles used 8 points from Kempen and 5 by VanBellinger to key a 16-11 surge. Suring cut the deficit to 49-46 with 80 seconds left, but couldn’t get any closer as a key defensive stop resulted in Schlies being fouled and making three late free throws to seal the win.

Schlies and DeLaet connected for 5 points each in the fourth quarter.

“The second half was alot like the Peshtigo game...had things going our way early only to see it slip away. In the third quarter Suring collapsed their 1-3-1, we couldn’t hit a shot and made some mistakes. Seems like Suring took advantage of every one of our mistakes. The fourth quarter saw us make more youthful errors,” Ranallo explained.

Patriots Nipped At

Buzzer On 3-Pointer

By Suring’s Jazwieck


The Patriots gave visiting Suring a battle to the wire before falling 51-50 on a buzzer-beating three-point shot by Anthony Jazwiecki Friday night. Champions of the Northern Lakes Conference and finishing with a plush 20-3 hardwood readout, the Patriots controlled the game until the final seconds.

Coach Paul Whitt saw his troops own a 16-14 edge at the first break as senior guard Trent Heath shook free for 9 points in the opening 8 minutes, including a trey while Austin Glanzer added a pair of buckets. Dillon Kempen shouldered the scoring load for Suring, netting 10 points on a pair of treys and two buckets.

The defenses took over in the second frame as the Patriots extended their lead to 27-21 at halftime. Randall Bose tallied 4 points while Glanzer, Jake Garrelts and Alex Whitt connected on jumpers.

Kempen continued his scoring pace with two more baskets to keep Suring within striking distance.

Jazwiecki keyed a 16-15 Suring run in period three with a pair of threes while Creo VanBellinger added one for a 42-37 deficit. Heath (7) and Glanzer combined for 13 points in the frame for the Patriots.

Over the final 8 minutes, Suring ran off a 14-8 edge to win pull out the victory. Jazwiecki continued his long range bombing with 8 points, including a pair of treys.

Holding a 50-48 edge with 10 ticks left, the Patriots saw Alex Whitt block a potential game-tying layup by Tyler Fisher out of bounds with a half second remaining. Just enough time for Jazwiecki to come through. Getting the ball in the corner, Jazwiecki watched his shot roll around the rim before falling through for the game winner.

In the fourth quarter, the Patriots saw Heath tally 5 points but missed opportunities at the free throw stripe proved fatal. Goodman-Pembine went 2-8 from the charity stripe down the stretch with Heath going 1-3, Glanzer 1-2 and Whitt missing all 3 of his attempts.

Kempen topped Suring with 20 points, Jazwiecki added 14 and Fisher 8.

Heath was the top gun for Goodman-Pembine with 21 points, Glanzer tallied 15 and Bose 6.

Cavvies Top Gillett

In Semifinals 56-34

The STAA basketball squad earned its first ever Division 5 title game berth following a buzzer-to-buzzer thrashing of Gillett Friday for a 56-34 victory.

"We told the guys that they were going to need to come out strong," said STAA head coach Ric Powers. "We've had trouble with Gillett this season. I told them they were going to have to come out and stomp on those guys if they expected to win. And that's what they did. Our guys were patient and they got the job done."

There was defense aplenty early on as the Cavaliers' suffocating brand of ballhawking kept the visiting Tigers off the board for most of the opening frame, which ended with the score favoring Central 9-2.

While the STAA's defensive plan was busy frustrating Gillett's progress, Kiefer Powers brought a bag of daggers to the game and seemed to know exactly when to cut into the Tigers' defense. He nailed a three pointer early in the game to get the score to 7-0 and put the lopsided victory in motion.

Powers did it again early in the second quarter just as the visiting crew had managed to put some points on the board, hitting an outside shot that had an opponent or two shaking his head as the Cavaliers went up 13-4.

Powers, who finished with 20 points, did more needling to start the second half as he turned in back-to-back layups off Gillett turnovers.

Jameson Bardowski was clutch all game long for Central. In addition to being a big factor in the defensive dominance his team had on display, Bardowski turned in 13 points. Casey Boyle also turned in 13 points and played a huge role for the defense while pulling down 14 boards.

"They all stepped up," coach Powers said. "It was great to get everybody out there. Guys like Alex (Votava), Jonathan (Chilcote) and Chase (Brumm) got their standing ovation as seniors. This is the farthest this team has ever got. They all played well and I'm proud of them."

STAA Falls To Powerful

NEW In Title Clash 78-48

The Cavaliers, backed by a large group of traveling fans, had an off game against the best Division 5 squad in Wisconsin Saturday night and the result was a 78-48 loss to NEW Lutheran. The setback also marked the end of what has been nothing short of a very special season for the Cavaliers (19-6).

Coming out flat, STAA found itself down 22-8 after the end of the first quarter. They would get as close as six but the Blazers were never really threatened and were able to close the game with a 24-12 fourth quarter to pocket the championship.

Kiefer Powers and Jameson Bardowski, both seniors, led the Cavaliers in defeat with 21 and 17 points respectively. Senior forward Casey Boyle added eight.
