Marines/Cougars Claim Invitational Titles

Issue Date: January 16, 2019

Marines Run Away With 50th Peshtigo Invite Title

Marinette dominated the 50th annual Peshtigo Wrestling Invitational.

Marinette won the 10-team invite with 226.5 points, 55 points better than the second place Oshkosh West and third place Wausau East squad.

Marinette had six wrestlers win their respective weight classes. Jonny Bieber won at 113. He got four byes and pinned West's Clayton Eckstrein in two minutes, 39 seconds.

Owen Suennen pinned three opponents, all in the first round, after two byes. He took down Crivitz's Elijah Duerst in 29 seconds, Peshtigo's Omer Farghali in 56 seconds and Wausau East's Lane Juedes in 1:33.

Isaiah Walker wrestled four matches. He pinned teammate Angel Simpson in 53 seconds, teammate Brayden Zuraski in 3:55, took down Peshtigo's John Schaut by 20-5 tech fall and won by 10-3 decision in the final.

Josh Walker was first at 152, a weight he was bumped to for the tournament. He didn't have the advantage of any byes. He pinned his first three matches, won a high-scoring 26-12 match over Clintonville/Marion's Matthew Skowronski and won by 13-9 decision over Menominee's Hunter Wroblewski in the final.

Sam McClain (160) got three byes, pinned Wausau's Noah Hess in 39 seconds and won by 15-4 major decision over another Wausau opponent in the final.

Reese Holder pinned all five of the opponents he faced on the way to a win at 220. Three were done by the end of the first round, one went 42 seconds into the second period and only one made it into the third period, a 5:35 pin over Gillett/Suring's Brody Zahn.

Sean Holk was second at 170. After winning his first four matches, all in 1:19 or less by pin, he fell 6-4 to West's Edgar Heredia, who Marinette coach Jason Champagne said was the fourth-ranked wrestler in Division I.

Brayden Zuraski (132) was also second, with his only loss coming against teammate Isaiah Walker and Sam Gressel (138) was second with only one loss.

Alec Queever (126), Josh Goslyn (138), Domenic Paradiso (145), Anthony Jardeen (182) and Dakota Cuff (195) were all fourth. Angel Simpson (132) and John Boyce (195) were fifth. Shayla Diaz (126) took sixth.

Marinette brought its JV reserves along with its varsity team. At a time when many area teams, Peshtigo included, are struggling to field full varsity teams, Marinette's numbers are strong.

"Our kids are buying into what we're selling and what we're selling is that we care about all our athletes, we care about you as human beings and we want to use wrestling as a vehicle for the rest of your lives, not just in wrestling, but in life," Champagne said. "We want the kids to take away all the character traits that you're going to learn from this sport, the discipline, the perseverance, because life isn't easy. That's what we sell to our kids and I think that's why our kids are buying in. Not only that, but they're coming out and performing at a high level, so that's what we like to see. I think it's a credit to our coaching staff and the people we have behind the scenes that the kids are buying in to what we're doing."

Overall, Champagne was happy with what his team did.

"We came out and worked a lot of good stuff that we've been practicing this last week," he said. "Overall, it's good to come out of here with a victory and get a bit of a confidence booster going into regionals in three weeks. This was our last tournament over the year before regionals. I feel like we performed pretty good. I'm pretty happy with what we did today."

Crivitz was tied for fourth with Peshtigo. Joseph Tomaszewski was first at 195 for Crivitz. He pinned one opponent in 11 seconds, another in 2:31, won by injury default and took lost to Oshkosh West's Collin Jones in the final match of the day, but still got the win in the bracket.

John Danielson was second at 195 with two pins and a major decision. Tony Jopek (145) was second with three pins on the day. Elijah Duerst (120) was fourth and Jaden Bemis (182) came in fifth.

For Peshtigo, which battled injuries during the week, according to coach Warren Howard, Nick Parrette was first at 138. He pinned his first two opponents in 1:35 and 57 seconds, won by 8-3 decision and 12-5 decision over West's Carson Hollis in the first-place match.

"He's a really improved wrestler," Howard said, calling Parrette a "force to be reckoned with," adding, "For a three-year wrestler, a senior, he's pretty solid. He's done great things for us all season. He just showed it here again today."

Reese DeMarce (182) took second. He went 2-2 in live matches. Joh Schaut was third at 132 and Omer Farghali was third at 120.

Farghali and DeMarce are first-year wrestlers for Peshtigo.

Gillett-Suring wasn't far behind in sixth. Sam Lemens won the 145-pound class. He didn't get any byes, pinning his first four opponents before a 6-4 decision win in the final over Jopek. Brody Zahn (220) took second with a 4-1 record and his only loss to Holder. Jake Burt (285) and Mike VanDenElzen (170) were fourth.

Menominee took eighth, led by Hunter Wroblewski (220), who took second at 152. He pinned his first three opponents before a four-point loss to Josh Walker in the first-place match. None of his other matches made it out of the first round.

Aidan Smith (126) was third, Seth Smith (170) was fifth and Adam Conine (182) placed seventh.

Oconto Falls sent its JV team, taking 10th behind Clintonville/Marion. Graeson Pankratz was second at 106 with four wins, two by pin, one by tech fall and one by decision before a loss to Oshkosh West's Wilton Brown. Jeremy Caldwell (152) placed fourth and Brand Roland (182) came in sixth.

Howard said the tournament numbers were up this season for the 50th installment.

"It's hard to keep tournaments going," he said. "It just was a good, balanced tournament. There wasn't anybody way out there. I see Marinette's going to run away with it because they've got a full team, but all in all, everybody gets some good matches and that's really what you're looking for."

Cougars Dominate Field to Capture Cutler Classic Crown

The Coleman Cougars were in a class of their own at the 16-team Cutler Classic Invitational in New London over the weekend, winning by 87 points at the top of the standings.

The Cougars had 281 points, with second-place Pulaski having 194 in second and 187 giving De Pere third. De Pere and Pulaski, along with Wisconsin Rapids, are ranked Division I teams.

Seven Coleman grapplers won their respective weight classes. Koltin Grzybowski (113) pinned his first two live opponents after a bye, then winning by a comfortable tech fall over Shayn Quick of De Pere in the championship match, 18-2.

Kasey Casper (120) won by major decision, pin and decision, 8-4, on the way to a first place. Caleb Gross won two matches by major decision before a 5-0 decision over De Pere's Sam Bruss (25-7) in the final.

Karson Casper (138) won by two major decisions in the quarterfinal and first place match with a 59-seconcd pin over Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln's Zac Hamel (26-8) in the semi.

Jake Baldwin (145) pinned his first opponent, beat an opponent by major decision and took down 29-3 Wyler Lubeck of Wisconsin Rapids by 7-2 decision in the final. Bryce Karban (152) pinned his first opponent in 54 seconds, topped Wabeno/Laona's Derek Moravec 6-5 in the semi, winning the championship 10-1.

Brock Martinson won in 33 seconds, took a 3-0 decision win and pinned his final opponent, Pulaski's Liam Fahey, in 3:09.

Tyler Blanchard (160) was third with a 3-1 live record, Spencer Karban (220) went 3-1 on the day, Chance Gruber was fourth at 106 with a 2-2 record in live matches, John Bieber (195) took fourth with a 2-2 record, Cole Klimek (170) was fifth with a 1-2 live record and Coby Den Ruyter was eighth at 182.

"I was extremely pleased with how our team performed at a very tough tournament with several ranked teams and to win the tournament by almost 100 points is pretty incredible," Coleman coach Kevin Casper said. "To get seven in the finals and seven champions at a tournament like that is outstanding, thus I like the direction we are heading."

Marinette Falls in Tight Match With Little Chute 42-40

Marinette won six of the 11 live matches against Little Chute on Thursday, but fell 42-40 after two forfeits in a back-and-forth match.

Marinette started off four points ahead, with Jonny Bieber beating Carter Kruckeberg 10-2 at 113.

Noah Kilgas (120) was uncontested and Bryan Rodriguez pinned Owen Suennen at 126 to put the Mustangs ahead 12-4.

Marinette got two straight pins from Alec Queever (132) and Isaiah Walker (138) to take its four-point lead back. An Adam Kilgas (145) pin over Sam Gressel broke up a five-win stretch by Marinette, with Josh Walker (152) pinning Devin Stanelle at 152, Sam McClain (160) winning by forfeit at Sean Holk (170) pinning Ezekial Stoll.

Little Chute would win three of the next four matches, with Bryce Schumacher (182) pinning Dakota Cuff, Mathew Janssen (195) pinning Anthony Jardeen and Nick Wegand (285) pinning John Boyce.
