Bulldogs Win Coleman Ryder Cup at Parkway GC
Peshtigo won the Coleman Ryder Cup Saturday, beating a couple of M&O Foes and one Packerland opponent.
The Bulldogs carded a 151 on the day, beating second-place Coleman by 10 strokes. In the Ryder Cup format, golfers pair up to combine for one score over three components: an alternate hit, best ball and scramble.
Peshtigo's best pair was that of Trent Carriveau and Jordan Carvenough, finishing with a 72. Adam Bauman and Maija Carriveau shot a 79 and Ty Davis and Joe Sodini combined for an 82.
"The cup is such a cool trophy, and it was cool seeing Trent and Ty winning it for the fourth straight year, and also for Maija and Joe as newcomers." Peshtigo coach Kyle Cheney said.
For Coleman, Kasey and Karson Casper shot a 71, the second-best score of the day. Peyton Deering and Dylan Marquardt combined for a 90 and Conner DeWitt and Kamron Kostrova finished with a 94.
Oconto didn't win, but the Blue Devils did have the day's medalist pair in Andrew Westphal and Will Sherman. Collin Ebben and Noah Young combined for a 93 and Josh Delzer/Connor Ebben carded a 95.
"This is always such a fun event and great format to build team chemistry," Cheney said.
Marines Win Home Ryder Cup Invite
Marinette hosted and won a Ryder-Cup-style competition on Tuesday.
Nine total local foes and opponents from around northeastern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula came out for the competition, but at the end of the day, the hosts prevailed.
Marinette shot a 139, with players competing in pairs and combining the scores of the top two pairings to get a team score.
Matt Wagner and Ty Kretz combined for a 69 over 18 and a Chas Ferm-Wes Knutson pairing resulted in a 70. Trey Kretz and Kelten Hermanson combined for a 77 as well.
Menominee had two pairs combine for a 169. Brady Badker and Andrew McIntyre finished with 80 and a paring of Cooper Conway and Kade Lesperance shot an 89.

Marines Win Twice, Extend Lead in NEC
Things are looking good for the Marinette golf team.
Two Marinette golfers are battling for golfer of the year and after Monday's golf meet at the Creeks at Ivy Acres in Hortonville, the Marines have a 5.5-point lead in the North Eastern Conference.
Marinette shot a 329 to beat Luxemburg-Casco by nine strokes. Ty Kretz shot a 74 and Matt Wagner carded a 79. Wes Knutson finshed with 89, Chas Ferm shot a 93 and Kelten Hermanson scored a 95.
Kretz started on the right foot with a birdie after he drove 280 to start, chipped up and putted home for three strokes. On the front nine, he shot a 35 to finish under par. On the back nine, he "continued to struggle and managed to scrap out a 39," as he put it.
Wagner said he didn't play his best, but it could have been worse, instead focusing on the team's success moving toward a North Eastern Conference championship and hopefully state qualification later this season.
Kretz and Wagner are the clear cut favorites for the NEC's golfer of the year, with Kretz averaging a 37.9 on the season. He has only recorded one nine-hole round of 40 or higher all season.
Wagner is averaging a 38.6, with no other conference golfer below 40 for the season. Knutson is tied for 11th and Hermanson is tied for 12th.
Oconto Falls shot a combined 377. Evan Jaeger's 85 was the team's best, followed by Clayton Rathsack with 94, Chase Pecha's 98, a 100 from Bodee Woods and Jacob Holman's 114.
Marinette Tops Kohler on Their Home Course
Marinette took on Kohler on the golf course Saturday, coming away with a 32-stroke win at Meadow Valleys.
Marinette was led by the day's best golfer, Ty Kretz. He finished with a 74 to best the rest of the pack by six strokes.
Next up was Wes Knutson's 80, his best high school score, Matt Wagner's 82, an 89 from Chas Ferm and a 90 out of Kelten Hermanson.
"The kids played well on a U.S. Open course," coach Pete Kretz said. "Most had trouble putting on the large, fast greens."
Kohler shot a 357 as a team, with its best golfer carding an 82.
Marinette's JV team was led by Trey Kretz and Keegan Polomis, who shot 94 and 97, respectively.
Bulldogs Top Packerland Field at the Orchards
Peshtigo shot its lowest total of the season with a 163 at the Orchards Golf Course in Egg Harbor on Thursday.
The Bulldogs beat five other Packerland Conference teams, led by Adam Bauman and Ty Davis, who shot 39 and 40 on the day.
"Ty and Adam played committed golf today," Peshtigo coach Kyle Cheney said. "They both executed their gameplans really well in being specific with their targets and trusting their swings."
Jordan Carvenough wasn't far behind with a 41, Trent Carriveau shot a 43 and Maija Carriveau finished with a 50.
Despite having their best day of the season, they can do even better, Cheney said.
"I was happy with our score today, but it easily could have been better, as we did leave shots out on the course," he said. "We clean those up and this team will be shooting the scores that got us down to Madison for the state championship last season."
For Oconto (163), which took second place, Andrew Westphal led all golfers with a 38, Will Sherman shot a 50, Noah Young carded a 53, Collin Ebben shot a 54 and Josh Delzer finished with 58.

Peshtigo Wins Two Packerland Nine Holes, Casper Medalist
The Packerland Conference used Tuesday's match at Horseshoe Bay Country Club in Egg Harbor as two makeup nine-hole matches in conference play, though the Packerland Conference wasn't the only one with representatives at the meet.
With spring weather canceling events earlier in the season, Tuesday served as two opportunities for Packerland teams to make up some points, along with an opportunity for Coleman to hone its play outside of the conference.
Peshtigo won both the front and back nine for the Packerland Conference teams, posting a 161 team score on the front nine and a 167 on the back.
On the front nine, Trent Carriveau shot a 36 to lead the Bulldogs. He hit a couple of birdies and an eagle, with a recent change to his putting form paying dividends, Bulldogs coach Kyle Cheney said.
"Golf gets really fun when putting with the confidence that you're going to make everything," Cheney said.
The other four Peshtigo golfers were bunched up, with Jordan Carvenough (42), Adam Bauman (43), Ty Davis (44) and Maija Carriveau (46) rounding out the Bulldog scoring.
On the back half, Trent Carriveau shot a 37 and Carvenough finished with a 38. Davis carded a 42, Bauman shot a 44 and Maija Carriveau finished with 49.
"Playing Horseshoe Bay Country Club was a great experience and test for our team," Cheney said. "The 18-hole score of 328 was encouraging considering the difficult, undulating greens."
Oconto shot a 197 on the front nine and a 205 on the back nine.
On the front nine, Andrew Westphal and Will Sherman each shot a 42. Collin Ebben, Noah Young and Josh Delzer carded 56, 57 and 58, respectively.
On the back nine. Westphal turned it up a notch to shoot a 38. Sherman carded a 46. Delzer shot a 59, Young finished with a 62 and Ebben, a 64.
Coleman was also at the event, with Kasey Casper making the most of the day. He shot a 70 to earn medalist honors of all golfers.
Dylan Marquardt shot a 99, Peyton Deering shot a 102, Connor DeWitt finished with a 107 and Ember DeWit finished with a 113.
