Marinette Claims Peshtigo Invite Title; Coleman Takes 3rd at Cutler Classic

Issue Date: January 17, 2018

Marinette won the seven-team Peshtigo Invitational on Saturday, Jan. 16, with Peshtigo coming in second. Both teams had three first-place finishers.

Three Marinette wrestlers took first at their respective weight classes. Owen Suennen took first despite not wrestling a match, as he was the only wrestler at 106.

Sean Holk went 3-0 in his three matches with three pins in under two minutes each to win the 170-pound weight class. He pinned Gillett/Suring's Brice Winkler in 1:04, Menominee's Adam Conine in 1:30 and Crivitz's Jaden Bemis in 1:35.

Reese Holder (220) was 4-0 in live matches with a tech fall win over Crivitz's Joseph Tomaszewski, 17-2, and three pins. He pinned Peshtigo's Kody Klimek in 1:21, then went on to defeat two Wausau East opponents in 3:07 and 4:07, respectively.

Sam Gressel (132) took second. His only loss came in the first round to Wausau East's Sam Meyers by major decision, but he won his other two live matches with a 6-2 decision over Peshtigo's John Schaut and a pin of Wausau East's Jordan Kudick.

Chase Weishaar (113) and Dillon Hill (182) were each third with three byes and two pin losses.

London Brown (126) went 1-3 in live matches to take fourth, Devin Shedlock (145) placed fourth with two decision wins, Sam Drees went 1-3 in live matches with a pin over Menominee's Zachary Watkins and Cory Siebers (285) was 1-3 with a pin of Wausau East's Vinny Copeland.

Taking fifth were Alec Queever (120) and Josh Goslyn (138), while Angelina Simpson (138) was sixth.

For the Bulldogs, Zack Wauters (113), Max Rauch (145) and Gavin Brissette (285) each won their respective weight classes.

Wauters won the MVP of the invitational, but Rauch potentially faced the toughest path to a title.

Wauters won both of his live matches in under a minute. After three byes, he pinned Menominee's Aidan Smith and Marinette's Chase Weishaar in 32 and 51 seconds, respectively.

"Zack manhandled everyone," Peshtigo Coach Warren Howard said. "He wasn't pushed at all in this tournament."

Rauch started off the tournament with three straight pin victories, beating Gillett/Suring's Mike VanDenElzen in 41 seconds, Marinette's Devin Shedlock in 1:16 and Gillett/Suring's Brock Herzog in 2:22. After a forfeit win against Menominee's Larry Schwartz, Rauch and Crivitz's Michael Retza lined up across from one another in what could have been the day's most exciting match.

Retza led Rauch with time dwindling, but Rauch capitalized with just 12 seconds remaining, getting a reversal and the win, 4-3.

"It was a really close match with both evenly-matched wrestlers," Howard said. "It was a really good match. He wrestled well all day."

Brissette won all four of his matches via the pin, beating Marinette's Cory Siebers in 47 seconds and defeating three opponents from Wausau East, with two of them also coming in under 50 seconds.

Devyn Wauters (160) took second with a 3-1 record in live matches. His only loss came at the hands of Gillett/Suring's Sam Davis in the final matchup.

Nick Parrett (126), John Schaut (132) and Riley Plosczynski (195) were each third. Schaut was 1-2, while Parrett and Plosczysnki each took two of four.

Bailey Webb went 2-3 with two pin victories, including one in 22 seconds, taking fourth at 120. Mitchell Peters (152) and Kody Klimek (220) were each fifth.

Howard said that there has been dialogue with other teams about coming to the tournament next year, with one team already committed to attending.

"The last few years we've had between seven and nine teams. We picked up one already, so I think the numbers will come back up," he said.

Next weekend, the Bulldogs will wrestle in Pulaski, at what Howard considers one of the toughest regular season competitions there is.

"That's one of the toughest tournaments in the state," Howard said. "Every bracket will either have state champions or place winners. That tournament really brings out the best, and you have to wrestle your best to beat the best and at the end of the day it's going to be a tough one. Every weight class is loaded."

With Wausau East in third, Gillett/Suring was fourth. Sam Davis (160) and Sam Lemens (138) each took first.

Lemens won four of his five matches by pin, with another win coming via major decision. His four pins all ended in the first period, while his major decision win came against Menominee's Matt Nowack, 11-0.

In addition to the team's two first-place finishers, four wrestlers took second. Reid Winkler (152) went 3-1 with his only loss coming to Wausau East's Daniel Ryan and two wins by pin, while Brice Winkler was 2-1 with a 22-second pin over Menominee's Adam Conine and Ben Burt (195) took his only loss to Sheboygan South's John Zapata in the final match of the day, finishing 3-1 with two pin victories, one of which took 28 seconds. Andy Lemens (120) started the day with a decision loss to Sheboygan South's Carlos Tellez, but ended on a roll, pinning his last three opponents to finish with four wins to the one loss.

Nate Davis (138) took third with a 3-2 record and three pin victories and Brock Herzog (145) was 3-2 with one pin over teammate Mike VanDenElzen, who took fifth in the same weight class with a 1-4 record. Colton Wolfe (126) was also fifth.

Menominee took fifth. The Maroons had two second-place finishers. Aidan Smith was 1-1 with his loss coming to Peshtigo's Zack Wauters, the tournament MVP. Matt Nowack faced five opponents at 138, pinning four of them, with a loss to Gillett/Suring's Sam Lemens sandwiched in. Three of his wins came in under a minute, with 22, 34, and 47-second wins.

Tyler Heusinger (120) took third with a 3-2 record and two pins to his name, including one in 22 seconds, while Hunter Wroblewski (152) took third with pin and decision wins.

Adam Conine (170) was fourth, Zachary Watkins (160) and Gabriel Shaw (195) were fifth and Larry Schwartz (145) took sixth.

Crivitz came in sixth, one spot ahead of Sheboygan South. No Wolverine won a weight class, but three took second.

Michael Retza (145) tore through the field, pinning his first four opponents in the first period. He took down opponents in 23 seconds, 30 seconds, 1:20 and 1:30 before facing off with Rauch, where he was beaten 4-3 on a late reversal.

Joseph Tomaszewski lost his first match of the day on a tech fall to the eventual champion of the 220-pound weight class, Reese Holder of Marinette, but he finished on a high note with a bye and three pin victories.

Ezekial Lawrence took second with a 1-1 record at 182, pinning Marinette's Dillon Hill and losing a heartbreaker in the fifth round to Wausau East's Rodman Tom, 6-5.

Jaden Bemis (170) was 1-2 with a pin victory and a third-place finish. Tony Jopek (152) was fourth.



Cougars Finish Third at 16-Team Cutler Classic

The Coleman Cougars went on to take third as a team in the 16-team Cutler Classic Invitational in New London on Saturday, Jan. 13, riding first-place finishes from four former state qualifiers.

The usual suspects dominated for the Cougars, with 2017 DIII state champions Koltin Grzybowski (113) and Caleb Gross (120) and 2017 DIII qualifiers Jake Baldwin (138) and Shamus McLain (160) each winning their respective weight classes.

Grzybowski received two byes, winning his two live matches in dominant fashion, beating Pulaski's Mitchell Kitzman by 17-6 major decision and Southern Door's Griffin Slezewski by 20-5 tech fall.

Gross beat Southern Door's Ben Kielar in a 2:36 pin and Oshkosh North's Cade Schmitz in 1:40, then taking a 9-0 victory over Pulaski's Owen Heinz to claim the top spot on the podium.

Baldwin was arguably the most dominant of any of the four, as he pinned Sturgeon Bay's Triston Beauchamp in 1:56 and Princeton's Casey Dykstra in 59 seconds before winning the championship match over Weyauwega-Fremont's Logan Kicherer in a 17-1 tech fall.

McLain started with a 1:30 pin over Weyauwega-Fremont's Ben Strehlow and backed it up with major decision wins in the final two rounds over Appleton East's Ryan Stocker and Ripon's Brady Kissinger.

"They're getting better each and every time out and getting their moves the way they should be," Coleman Coach Kevin Casper said. "They're definitely looking good."

Grzybowski and Gross, along with then-senior Donovan Salewski, each won state last season, and Casper said topping the podium again is a goal for all four of the weekend's first-place finishers.

"They obviously all have goals, and their goals are to be state champions, of course," Casper said. "We're kind of going to take it one meet at a time, but when that time gets here, there's no doubt that's in their sights, that's for sure."

Ty Blanchard took third at 145, with just one decision loss standing between him and a shot at a first-place finish. He pinned three opponents on the day, with his only loss coming to Appleton East's Zach Scharenbrock by way of a 10-7 decision.

"Ty got beat by a really good kid in the semifinal in a match that could have gone either way," Casper said.

John Bieber (170) took fourth, with a 2-2 record in live matches, though both of his losses were to New London's Jacob Hoier, who pinned him in the quarterfinal and the third-place match.

"John keeps getting better as time goes on," Casper said.

Spencer Karban also placed fourth, going 3-2 with a bye win, a 17-second pin over Southern Door's Isais Garcia and a decision win over Princeton's Owen Apland.

Coby DenRuyter (182) took sixth with a decision win, Sam Kuchta was eighth with a 1-2 record in live matches and Logan Liptak did not place.

Billy Ganter and Brock Martinson did not wrestle for the Cougars, adding to the list of Cougars bitten by the injury bug, with Bryce Karban and Kasey Casper each out for an extended period of time.

Four wrestlers made the trip for Wabeno/Laona, with all four of them placing in the top four spots in their respective weight classes.

Dylan Houts (195) continued his strong season, advancing his record to 27-2 on the year with a first-place finish. He started the day with a pin of Pulaski's Andrew Egnarski, beat Karban in an 8-2 finish and won by major decision over Ripon's Austin Lammers.

Derek Moravec (152) was second, advancing to the first-place match with a decision win over Waupaca's Garret Miller and a major decision over Princeton's Cooper Richter. In the first-place match, he ran into Oshkosh North's Dalton Holmes (22-2) who was able to get the pin.

Brenden (132) and Tanner Dorner (145) were both fourth-place finishers. Each was 3-2, with Tanner winning twice by pin and once by decision. His only two losses came at the hands of Blanchard in the quarterfinal and third-place match.

Brenden won by two decisions and a bye, losing in overtime to New London's Garrett Ruckdashel (25-3) in the match for third place.

Wabeno/Laona placed eighth as a team. Pulaski and Weyauwega-Fremont were the only teams to finish ahead of Coleman.



Mascarette Leads Northwoods Storm at Mariucci Invitational

Florence/Niagara's Tristen Mascarette took first in the 113-pound weight class at the Ray Mariucci Invitational in Kingsford on Saturday, Jan. 13, with the team taking ninth of 11.

Mascarette advanced to the semifinal with two byes, then pinning Ishpeming's Christian Carello in 4:27 and Westwood's Nathan Brewer in 4:55. His record on the year is now 17-2.

In other weight classes, Dakota Wicke (140) was 1-2 in live matches, beating Iron Mountain's Jacob Carlson by 12-6 decision and taking two byes.

Michael Milan (125) and Jamie Blozinski (285) did not place, but Blozinski did win one of his matches in a pin of Negaunee's Bryce Dunstan that took less than two minutes.

Marquette, Gladstone and Westwood were the top three teams at the invitational, with Kingsford coming in fourth.
