Gillett Sweeps M&O; Peshtigo Boys Win Packerland

Issue Date: October 24, 2019

Tigers Sweep M&O Conference Meet, Peterson, Hansen Win Titles

The Gillett Tigers cruised to victory in the M&O Conference cross country championships, held on Thursday.

Racing at McCauslin Brook Golf Course in Lakewood, the Tigers won both the girls' and boys' conference championships in strong fashion.

The Tiger boys had four of the top six finishers in the race, led by Alex Peterson, who won the 32-runner race by nearly a minute with a time of 17 minutes, 19.6 seconds. Derek Hanson took second (18:15.6), Evan Peterson was fourth (18:18.5) and Riley Engebretsen placed sixth (18:53.4). Connor Hanson added a 10th-place finish for good measure (19:21) and Antonio Lizzaraga was 26th (21:56.5).

The Gillett girls were nearly a carbon copy of the boys, with four of the top six finishers and five in the top 10 of the 33-runner race as well. Sylvia Hansen finished first in the race (20:36.0), but not by much as she bested teammate Ryann Wagner by just half a second (20:36.5). Kasey Hansen took fourth (21:30.1), Angela Mosconi placed sixth (21:41.4) and Megan Wagner was 10th (22:28.7). The Tigers added 11th and 12th-place finishes as well courtesy of Cheyenne Krueger (22:30.2) and Laney DeBauch (22:43.2). Alaina Herzog took 16th (23:22.8) and Amber Brehmer was 19th (24:05.6).

The Tigers will enjoy the win, but not for long, as they're headed to the postseason, where they've got their sights set on heading to state.

"Both the boys and girls teams included winning the conference title as one of their goals this season," Gillett coach Bill DeJung said. "They have worked extremely hard to accomplish that. Preparation continues to achieve another goal on Saturday."

Coleman was second in both the boys' and girls' standings. For the Coleman boys, Karson Casper was third (18:17.8), Alex Rennie took fifth (18:40.1), Noah Rennie placed eighth (19:01.5), John Nowak took 13th (20:02.5), Ray LeMieux took 15th (20:18), Sam King was 18th (20:34.4) and Chance Gruber took 21st (21:26).

"Overall, the boys ran smart races," Coleman coach Becky Chaltry said. "They went into it knowing they had to run well to put up a fight against Gillett, who has a standout team this season."

The Coleman girls were led by Faith King, who broke up Gillett's run at the front of the race with a third-place finish (20:42.6). Sara Seefeldt took ninth with a personal record (22:20.4), Mariah Mursau was 13th (23:03.5), Megan Seefeldt was 18th (23:49.8), Ember DeWitt came in 20th (24:14.3), Molly Seefeldt took 23rd (25:08.4) and Mariah Payette was 25th (25:16.1).

"The girls ran smart and I have been very impressed with their improvements in the last few weeks," Chaltry said. "It will be fun to see how sectionals go."

Suring was third in the girls' race, but the Eagles did not have any runners in the boys' race. For the girls, Olivia Noack was fifth (21:32.6), Hailey Thomson was 14th (23:15.6), Chantelle Vandelzen placed 22nd (24:51.1), Madison Vandevelde was 26th (25:31) and Carley Geniesse placed 29th (26:28.5).

Crivitz was fourth of five in the girls' race, while the Wolverine boys were fourth of four. For the boys, Joey Pickett took 12th (19:42), Kougar Wagner was 14th (20:06.3), Jacob Behrendt was 17th (20:32.3), Alec Grandaw came in 20th (20:45.5), Chad Schroeder took 29th (23:03.8), Fox Gerner was 30th (24:42.3) and Liam Roman was 31st (25:11.9).

Bella Galindo paced the Crivitz girls with an eighth-place finish (22:10.9), Riley Roman was 17th (23:31.1), Taylor Giese was 21st (24:43), Zoey Brown placed 24th (25:12), Abby Bauer was 30th (27:09.9) and Brook Bourne took 31st (31:09.6).

Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas Academy placed fifth of five full teams in the girls' meet. Kennedy Marquardt was 15th (23:18.2), Megan Shallow placed 27th (25:40.1), Alexis Misco was 28th (25:44.1), Ciara Urbanek was 32nd (32:07.4) and Samara VanArk took 33rd (32:48.8).

The Lena/STAA boys were third of four. Kadin Baxter took ninth to lead the way (19:08.3), Dylan Comins took 16th (20:20), Cody Dellise was 19th (20:36.9), Luke Misco placed 22nd (21:31.3), Reed Hosking placed 23rd (21:37.1), Max Beyer was 27th (22:19.4), Norman Aguilar was 28th (22:29.7) and Franky Umentum placed 32nd (25:13.9).

Wausaukee did not have a full team. For the Ranger boys, Andrew Schroeder took seventh (19:00.2), Cole Caylor was 11th (19:33.1), Mikeal Shedlock-Davis took 24th (21:51.5) and Casey Nutt placed 25th (21:55.7). Madelyn Schlies was the lone girl runner for the Rangers finishing in the seventh spot with a time of 22:07.3.



Bulldog Boys Win Packerland Title, Woller Takes Home Gold

It took a full team effort for the Peshtigo Bulldogs to win the boys' conference championship on Thursday in Gibraltar.

The Bulldogs got three top-four finishes from Caleb Smith (17:21.49) second, Andrew Nelson (17:28.73) third and Logan Smith (17:34.85) fourth.

Beyond that, Cole Grabian and Matt Jornlin were 27th and 28th (20:04.99, 20:08.48) of 49 runners to get the Bulldogs into a tie with Kewaunee with 64 points. It was Rowan Gillespie who broke the tie, finishing 43rd to top Kewaunee's sixth runner, who took 46th.

Gillespie, a senior, has been battling a stress reaction in his shin this season, but he did enough to break the tie and give his team the conference title. Gillespie's time was a season record.

"We knew going into the meet that it would be close between us, Southern Door and Kewaunee," Peshtigo coach Keith Nault said.

In total, 10 of 13 Peshtigo runners finished the day with either a personal record or season record.

"This was just an excellent performance for our team," Nault said. "As coaches, we couldn't be more excited with the fitness and competitiveness that all of the runners displayed."

The Peshtigo girls were third on the scoreboard, but they weren't out of competition with first-place Kewaunee and second-place Sturgeon Bay.

"The girls finished third but were only out of the top spot by 11 spots," Nault said. "This was an exciting performance from a young team and shows tremendous promise for the future as they mature as runners."

Sydney Lund, a 2018 state qualifier, took second of 52 runners (20:23.66) to lead the way, Emily Halfman was eighth (22:06.23), Beverly Bloch took 16th (22:44.60), Jessi Swiatnicki was 25th (24:15.13), Maria Powers was 27th (24:22.93), Salsabeel Salem came in 49th (27:43.54) and Nathalie Hurley took 51st (29:07.08).

Oconto's boys took fifth of seven teams, led by Josh Woller, unsurprisingly. Woller, who has been the area's top runner all year, took first by over 50 seconds with his time of 16:31.26.

Logan Allan was 18th (19:04.49), Bryton Fuller was 26th (20:02.57), Josh Maynard took 34th (20:36.18), Angel Jordan was 35th (21:01.08), Preston Williams was 38th (21:28.46) and Sean Durand came in 40th (21:53.96).

Oconto's girls took eighth of eight teams. Josie Mireles was 23rd (24:09.81), Hannah Wusterbarth took 37th (25:38.8), Brooklyn Rasmussen took 38th (25:40.44), Jadyn Floyd came in 39th (25:59.66), Calysta Kurz was 40th (26:01.89) and Maddelyn Olive came in 46th (26:51.31).



Kitzinger/Maye Lead Marines at NEC Meet

Marinette and Oconto Falls competed at the North Eastern Conference Championship in Kaukauna on Saturday, but neither team, nor any other in the conference, as any match for Freedom on either the boys' or girls' side of the race.

Freedom dominated both races, with three boys in the top five and two girls.

Marinette broke into the top five runners in the girls' race courtesy of Katelyn Kitzinger, who took second of 62 runners (20:01.94). For the rest of the Marinette squad, Samantha Pieper took 38th (23:52.57), Hadley Reines was 40th (23:57.34), Ali Kacalo took 45th (24:53.2), Ava Dahlman was 48th (25:03.23), Maya Carviou took 54th (26:24.1) and Makenzie Hebert came in 57th (27:43.59).

Marinette was sixth of nine girls' teams. Oconto Falls took fifth. For the Panthers, 15th-place Autumn Canavera (21:53.49) and 17th-place Carleigh Kaczmarek (22:06.36) led the way. Autumn Magnin took 30th (23:06.21), Alexis Euclide was 36th (23:47.83), Alyson Fabry took 44th (24:39.5), Ericka Havemeier was 46th (24:56.9) and Jaden Reed was 49th (25:05.2).

Marinette's boys topped Oconto Falls' boys, taking seventh of nine teams. Matt Maye took fourth in the 62-runner field with a time of 17 minutes, 13.14 seconds. For the rest of the team, Ryan Demmith was 34th (19:13.91), Alec Queever took 37th (19:23.11), Caden Sullivan was 44th (20:08.14) and Jake Sommerfelt took 55th (21:34.16).

Oconto Falls' boys were eighth of nine. Joe Adams took 16th (17:49.72), Brendan Konitzer was 26th (18:26.7), Braden Uelman was 38th (19:24.98), Isaac Raddatz was 47th (20:25.84), Damian Murphy took 53rd (21:24.19), Tyler Budz was 56th (21:45.51) and Landon Budz came in 59th (22:19.17).



Goodman/Pembine Runners Compete at Northern Lakes Meet

Florence and Goodman/Pembine competed at the Northern Lakes Conference Meet in Lakewood on Thursday.

There were just three complete teams in the boys' race, with Goodman/Pembine coming in third behind Laona/Wabeno and Crandon. For G/P, Kevin Strietzel was fifth of 21 runners (20:47.2), Kody Stahley took ninth (21:35), Ely Marcy was 15th (23:44.6), Micah Heath took 19th (24:42.3) and Lamarr Lewis came in 21st (25:29.3).

Forence's only runner in the boys' race was Seth Axley, who took fourth overall (20:45.3).

Florence's girls were fourth of four teams. Goodman/Pembine did not have a full team.

Laona/Wabeno, Three Lakes/Phelps and Crandon were the top three teams in the conference, respectively.

Of 27 runners, Florence's Faith Neuens was ninth (23:46.3), Kiera Sullivan took 14th (25:01.3), Caitlyn Kelley was 18th (26:20.4), Crystal Leffler was 19th (26:27), Julia Hallgren came in 20th (27:02.3), Audrey Selden placed 22nd (28:16.2) and Kathleen Selden came in 23rd (28:26.9).

Maroon Boys/Girls Finish Fifth at U.P. D1 Finals

The Menominee Maroons knew it would be tough to compete with tough teams from around the Upper Peninsula at Saturday's MHSAA UP Division I Finals, including host Marquette, but they battled to a pair of fifth-place finishes.

Marquette won both the girls' and boys' UP championships.

For Menominee, the boys were fifth of nine teams. Hunter Shepeck took sixth of 65 runners (17:41.5), Landen Clausen was 24th (18:42.4), Nick Sandahl was 31st (19:19.9), Adam Sandahl was 36th (19:36.7), Evan Casey took 38th (19:40.2), Braeden Park came in 39th (19:47) and Daniel Birch was 42nd (19:54.5).
