Coleman, Lena & Crivitz Lead Area Teams on the Mats

Issue Date: January 9, 2020

Cougars Take Down Div 1 Pirates 35-29

The Coleman Cougars and Bay Port Pirates were the epitome of "back-and-forth" on Tuesday.

Coleman won six live matches to Bay Port's seven, though Coleman gained more points for their wins, with five of them coming by fall and the other by tech fall. Bay Port, on the other hand, did not record a pin which lead to a 35-29 Coleman Victory. "Probably one of the best dual matches in a long time with a lot of one point matches that could of went either way," said Coleman Coach Kevin Casper.

For Coleman, Ray LeMieux (113) beat Wyatt Wilson by 16-0 tech fall five seconds before the match would have ended, Will Bieber (126) pinned Seth Richards in 30 seconds, Sam Kuchta (145) pinned Austin Heim in 3 minutes, 36 seconds, Tyler Blanchard (160) pinned Colton Berna in 1:54, Jonathon Bieber (182) pinned Trevor Nys in 1:48 and Shamus McLain (220) pinned Max Hostetler in 1:46. "Things didn't start out the way we would of liked losing the first 2 out of 3 but Ray won by tech fall and Will got a pin that helped out but then we had to give up 6 at 132," said Casper. "Probably the most pivotal match of the night was at 145 with Sam Kuchta coming up huge with a pin against one of Bay Ports better wrestlers, Austin Heim. The match was tied at the time with Heim in on a single but Sam came with a Lateral to throw Heim to his back and keep him there for the pin." At the back half of the card the Cougars got those big pins from Blanchard, Bieber and McLain to seal the team victory.

For Bay Port, currently the 9th ranked team in D1, Owen Noel (106) defeated John Nowak in a 4-1 decision, Tristan Warzynski (120) defeated Chance Gruber in a 4-1 decision, Chris Vannieuwenhoven (132) won by forfeit, Jacob Ward (138) beat Karson Casper in an 8-7 decision, Chandler Stordeur (152) beat Jakob Horton 12-7, Matt Grzybowski (170) beat Cole Klimek in a 6-4 sudden victory, Drake Anderson defeated Coby Den Ruyter (195) in a 19-4 tech fall and defending D1 state champion, Max Meeuwsen narrowly beat Spencer Karban 7-2. The match was tied 2-2 going into the final 20 seconds with both wrestlers on there feet. Meeusen shot in on a double and was driving Karban across the mat as he tried a throw and was very close to getting it but Meeusen was just able to get his weight back to get the takedown and stay on top for the win. "I am proud of our team how they kept battling and perfect example how every point matters and tonight we got the pins and Bay Port didn't," added Casper.



Lena Finishes Third at Green Bay United Scramble

Lena and Peshtigo competed at the Green Bay United Scramble on Saturday, with Lena coming in third of eight teams at the event.

DePere was the first-place team, while Manitowoc Lincoln came in second.

Outside of Mashl, Dellise pinned Peshtigo's Kyle Rupert in 43 seconds, Manitowoc Lincoln's Carlos Pena in 4 minutes, 34 seconds and topped Kriztian Rocha-Flores in a 9-3 decision.

Crivitz Leads Area Teams at Manawa Invitational

Crivitz was the top local finisher at the Manawa Invitational at Little Wolf High School over the weekend, taking fourth of 14 teams.

The Wolverines finished behind just Madison Memorial, Manawa and Xavier, respectively.

Jaden Bemis won the 195-pound weight class with three pin victories. He pinned Xavier's Eddie Flottmeyer in 3 minutes, 6 seconds, Montello's Kevin Swan in 13 seconds and Madison Memorial's CJ Green in 3:08 to claim the top spot on the podium.

Ezekial Lawrence also won the 170 pound weight class for the Wolverines, dominating his first three opponents in 102, 54 and 110 seconds. He topped Oconto's Troy Wenzel by a 14-8 decision before facing his toughest test in Colin Moser in the first-place match. He defeated Moser with a 5-2 decision win to finish the day unbeaten.

Bulldogs and Maroons Wrestle to be 36-36 Draw

There wasn't much for live action in Tuesday's wrestling match between Menominee and Peshtigo, but what action there was, Peshtigo won.

The match ended in a 36-36 tie, but Peshtigo got the match win, as the Bulldogs won both of the live matches on the day, with Jon Laforce pinning Wilbert Ortega (106) in three minutes and 20 seconds and Mitchell Peters pinning Braxton Silkworth in 1:04.

Laforce is a first-year wrestler who coach Josh Greetan called "a natural at the sport."

Tied at four, Laforce got a reversal, fought off a takedown and got Ortega on his back.

"He knows what he's doing," Greetan said. "I wish I had him years ago. He moved into the district this year and it's a pleasure to have him."

Peters, on the other hand, has been in the program for a couple years, though he's missed quite a bit of time with injuries over the past couple of years.

"Mitch is a captain all year, he's a leader, and just having him on this team has been a pleasure," Greetan said, describing his leadership style as quiet but calling him a leader by example. He led the team on the mat in this one. " He knew we needed the pin points, obviously, it was a tie match, and he went out there and just took care of business."

Winning by forfeit Peshtigo were Kody Klimek (285), Radwa Farghali (132), Kyle Rupert (152) and Katelyn Lewis (170).

Petro Montoya (182), Adam Conine (195), Dylan Oudeans (220), Aiden Smith (138), Kaeleb Crawford (126) and Tyler Heusinger (145) won by forfeit for Menominee.

There were two double forfeits.



Lena Outduels Crivitz in M&O Conference Matchup

Lena defeated Crivitz on the wrestling mat Thursday by a 48-36 score after a late team comeback and some forfeit help.

The match began with a injury default win by Lena's Franky Umentum, with Karson Bins unable to finish the 160-pound match due to injury.

Crivitz drew even at 170 when Ezekiel Lawrence pinned Nathan Younger in 2 minutes, 58 seconds. At 182, Kyle Guy won by forfeit and it took just 18 seconds for Jaden Bemis to pin Michael Thomas at 195. John Danielson pinned Frank Desjarles in 1:09 at 220 to take a 24-6 lead for Crivitz, but that's where the tables turned, initially due to three forfeits.

Richard Fieck (285), Dylan Comins (106) and Luke Misco (113) all won by forfeit to tie things back up at 24.

Ayden DeCoursin (120) got Lena's first live win by pinning Dominic Thoreson in 3:20, Kevin Chang (126) got Lena six points by forfeit at 126, Sam Marquardt pinned Elijah Duerst at 132

in just 39 seconds and James Desjarles (138) won by forfeit to stretch the lead to 48-24.

The Wolverines' Tony Jopek (145) won by forfeit and Mitch Vanderpoel pinned Alex Decoursin in 2:52 to ensure that Crivitz finished on a high note, though they lost the match, 48-36.



Maroons Compete at Escanaba Elks Invite

It was an Upper Peninsula reunion at the Escanaba Elks wrestling invitational on Saturday, which included the Menominee Maroons.

Menominee took 15th of 20 teams in the field, hurt by having just seven wrestlers compete. Kaeleb Crawford was tops among them, as he took second in the 125-pound weight class. After a bye, he pinned St. Ignace's Matthew Valletta and Ishpeming's Kyle Hyatt in 1 minute, 20 seconds and 3 minutes, 1 second. He fell to Escanaba's Collin Arnt in the first-place match, however.

Dylan Oudeen (215) took sixth in his class with a 3-2 record, pinning three opponents in 4:39, 1:35 and 1:34.

Aiden Smith (135) was also sixth with a 1-2 record in live matches and two byes.

Connor Bretl (130) did not place with a 1-2 record, with Braxten Silkworth (160), Joe Gimbel (171) and Adam Conine (189) also wrestling but not placing.

Escanaba, Coopersville and Gladstone were the top three teams in the field, with Ishpeming and Grayling rounding out the top five.
