Cougars Win Prestigious 50th Annual Pulaski Invite

Issue Date: January 31, 2019

The Pulaski Invitational is often one of the toughest wrestling meets in Wisconsin and the way this season has gone, Coleman has proven it is one of the toughest wrestling teams in the state.

The Cougars easily won the 50th annual tournament with over 50 more points than runners up Kaukauna, finishing with 250, a tournament record. Coleman had two wrestlers win their respective weight classes.

Koltin Grzybowski won the 113-pound weight class. With just one loss on the year, he was a favorite entering the day, but he did beat Oconto Falls' Jager Eisch by 12-4 decision and Elkhorn Area's Payton Jacobson in a one minute, 41-second pin for a win on the day. The pair are 62-13 on the season.

Jake Baldwin is another Cougar who has been rolling this season, and Saturday was no different. He pinned his first two opponents in 21 and 56 seconds and beat Tyler Vanderlois of Kaukauna (30-10) by a 12-1 major decision in the 145-pound final.

When the Cougars lost, it wasn't by much.

Caleb Gross, who moved up to 132 this season, took just his third loss of the season (32-3) in the first-place match, facing Luxemberg-Casco's Bryce Bosnan, a three-time state champion. It wasn't as though he was outmatched, however, as the match went to a tiebreaker and he lost 4-3.

Shamus McLain (170) lost for the first time this season in the first-place match, falling by ultimate tiebreaker to Lux-Casco's Reece Worachek (32-5). His first two pin victories were in 44 and 48 seconds. Brock Martinson (285) won his first two matches in 1:05 and 29 seconds but fell 2-1 in the first-place match to 30-1 Max Meeuwsen of Bay Port.

Chance Gruber also took second at 106. He pinned opponents, including the top seed in the semifinal, in 5:52 and 3:08 but he lost 6-0 in the first-place match.

"Chance beating the number one seed in the semifinals was special," Coach Kevin Casper said. "He keeps coming on at the right time."

John Bieber (195) and Tyler Blanchard (160) each went 3-1 to take third in their respective classes. Kasey Casper (120), Karson Casper (138) and Bryce Karban (152) each took fourth. Spencer Karban (220) was fifth and Cole Klimek (182) placed sixth.

"It was pretty special to win the 50th annual Pulaski Invite, which is considered one of the best tournaments in the state of Wisconsin," coach Casper said. "Very proud of our overall effort and a lot of our kids beating some outstanding wrestlers and several of our final matches that could have very easily went the other way."

Coleman's scheduled match with Wrightstown on Friday was canceled.

Of 15 teams, Oconto Falls was 11th. Clayton Whiting won the 152-pound weight class, and he had to battle to do it. He won 10-3 in the quarterfinal, 8-4 in the semifinal and 3-1 by sudden victory in the final, beating Lux-Casco's Nathan Ronsman, a wrestler with state experience of his own and a 32-3 record. Whiting has lost just three matches this season.

Jager Eisch (113) and Aidan Stary (170) each took fourth, Jaden Ganter (106) was sixth, Bodee Woods (138) took seventh and Caleb Carlton (195) was seventh. Jacob Kaminski (182), Trevor Schindel (132) and Trevor Pankratz (160) did not place.

An outnumbered Peshtigo team took 15th. Nick Parrett (138) took sixth with a 2-3 record. He won by decision and pin, but fell by pin to Karson Casper and had to take medical forfeits in the final two matches of the day.

Reese DeMarce (182) and Riley Plosczynski (220) did not place.

Area Teams Compete at Dick Sorenson Classic

Four local teams sent wrestlers to the 20-team Dick Sorenson Door County Classic on Saturday.

Crivitz took 12th as a team with two fourth-place finishers leading the team. Tony Jopek was fourth at 145 with a 1-2 record, pinning Menominee Indian's Morgun Fish in the quarterfinal before two decision losses. John Danielson (220) was fourth with a 1-2 record. After a 1:40 pin of Menominee Indian's Assenex Turney, he lost by pin and major decision.

Ezekial Lawrence took sixth at 170 with a 3-2 record. He won by two pins, one of which came in 14 seconds, along with a 12-10 decision in the consolation semifinal. Joseph Tomaszewski (195) was also sixth, going 3-2. He pinned two opponents and beat a Wrightstown wrestler 12-6. His losses both came by decision, 8-2 and 5-1 to wrestlers with combined records of 36-12.

Elijah Duerst (120) and Ryley Bemis (126) did not place. Bemis won a match on the day to finish 1-2.

Gillett/Suring was 16th with just three wrestlers, as two took third place. Sam Lemens (138) went 2-1 in live matches, losing to De Pere's Andrew Lopez (25-12) by a 13-6 decision in the semifinal and winning 5-3 over Wrightstown's Wyatt Bruecker in the third-place match.

Brody Zahn (220) took third with a 2-1 record, pinning Amherst's Lucas Edelburg and beating Danielson 11-1. His loss came at the hands of Valders' Jackson Linsmeier, who is 32-3 this season. Mike VanDenElzen (170) did not place for G/S.

Florence/Niagara placed 17th of 20 teams, though the team had the only weight class winner of the four local teams. Tristen Mascarette won the 126-pound weight class with three pins. He took down New Holstein's Jarod Henschel in 1:19, Iron Mountain's Trevor Malburg in 1:23 and Oshkosh North's Cade Schmitz in 3:26.

Dakota Wicke (138) and Josh Broullire (145) didn't place.

Oconto came in 20th in large part due to the fact that the Blue Devils had just one wrestler, Troy Wenzel. He did have a decent showing, taking third at 160 with pin victories against Iron Mountain and De Pere opponents in 2:34 and 2:51.

Peshtigo Defeats Sturgeon Bay in Packerland Dual

Peshtigo defeated Sturgeon Bay 34-40 on Thursday.

The Bulldogs started things off on the right foot, with John Schaut (145) pinning Sam Abel 36 seconds before the match would have ended as a decision win.

Schaut was wrestling two weight classes higher than he normally does.

"I told him the rest of the year, just wrestle strong and he did that for us tonight," Peshtigo coach Warren Howard said. "He's going to stay there."

After a string of forfeits, the teams were tied at 30 apiece, meaning the match came down to Nick Parrett of Peshtigo and Peyton Hurth of Sturgeon Bay.

Parrett has been arguably Peshtigo's top wrestler this season, so the Bulldogs were in capable hands. Parrett had a good third round to finish the match with a 12-3 major decision win and give the Bulldogs the team win.

"He's a thrower. He scares us because he's so strong, but he's good enough to do it," Howard said of Parrett. "Half of those moves he did, we surely didn't coach him. He's just got that grit and hard work and he just wants to throw people."

Peshtigo got forfeit wins from Reese DeMarce (195), Katelyn Lewis (170) and Omer Farghali (120).

Maroon Matmen Fall to Gladstone and Bark River-Harris

Menominee managed one live win against both Gladstone and Bark River-Harris on Thursday, falling in both matches.

Menominee was beaten 54-12 by Gladstone. In live action, Menominee's Seth Smith (171) pinned Isaac Tyson in two minutes, 15 seconds. Adam Conine (189) won by forfeit for the Maroons.

In the two other live matches, Gladstone's Cole Hansen (152) pinned Hunter Wroblewski in 1:57 and Nicholas Dawson (130) pinned Aidan Smith in 2:33.

Gladstone won seven matches by forfeit for 42 points.

Against Bark River-Harris, Menominee was beaten 42-12. Wroblewski pinned Bark River's Kyle Adams in just over a minute and Aidan Smith (125) won by forfeit.

Bark River's Hal Burton beat Seth Smith due to injury at 171 and Austin Kleiman (189) pinned Adam Conine in 52 seconds. Bark River-Harris won with five forfeits.

Lena/STAA Grapplers Slip Past Northwoods Storm

Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas Academy lost three of four live matches against Florence/Niagara on Thursday but won the match 30-18 with four forfeits.

Kevin Chang (120), Alex DeCoursin (132), Cody Dillise (152) and Kiko Cajigas (160) each won by forfeit for Lena/STAA, while Richard Fieck pinned Colton Armstrong in three minutes, 19 seconds.

For the Storm, Tristen Mascarette (126) pinned Franky Umentum in 1:09, Dakota Wicke (138) pinned James DesJarlais in 3:27 and Josh Broullire (145) pinned Noah Chang in 3:49.

The other six weight classes were double forfeits.
