Cougars Drop Panthers; Fall to Spartans

Issue Date: January 9, 2019

Coleman and Luxemburg-Casco usually wrestle pretty close matches when they meet one another in the winter and Friday was no different, with the Spartans escaping Coleman with a 36-30 win due in part to a forfeit.

Casco started with six points after a win from Travis LeGrave over Spencer Karban at 220, as he got a pin with eight seconds to go.

Brock Martinson recovered those points at 285 with a pin of Kyle Kroll in three minutes, eight seconds.

L-C took the lead in the low weight classes, with Hunter Joniaux (106) beating Chance Gruber in a 5-0 decision and Ty Paider winning by forfeit. Those six points would be crucial in a 36-30 win.

Koltzin Grzybowski (120) pinned Tyler Derenne in 53 seconds and Caleb Gross (132) pinned Luke Shefchik in 3:13, but a Kasey Casper pin loss, 4-2, was sandwiched in between. Going into the 138-pound weight class, things were knotted up.

At 138, Bryce Bosman of L-C oinned Jakob Horton in 54 seconds. At 145, Carson Casper gave Coleman four points with a 9-1 major decision, but the Spartans went on a run to just about wrap things up.

Nathan Ronsman (152) handed Jake Baldwin a rare loss, 4-3, Colton Worachek beat Bryce Karban 9-4 at 160 and Reece Worachek pinned Tyler Blanchard in 3:12 at 170.

Jonathon Bieber (182) beat Garrett Jeanquart in a 16-1 tech fall and Coby Den Ruyter (195) beat Joseph Chervenka 6-2, but the eight points weren't enough to overcome the existing deficit.

"Our match with Luxemburg-Casco was a great match that could have easily went the other way as well," Coach Casper said. "I'm proud of our team and in the end it might be a good thing for us on the outcome because we can learn a lot of things from this match to make us better."

He said there was a "great atmosphere for two storied programs that have ben two of the best in the state for decades.

Before the match, Coleman honored its 2012 state championship team, which beat Spring Valley/Elmwood 59-5 in the state final, which is the state's largest margin ever, according to Coach Casper.

Coleman Downs Oconto Falls in Battle of Area Powers

Recently, Coleman and Oconto Falls are the undisputed kings of area wrestling. On Tuesday, Coleman proved that it's number one this year.

The Cougars defeated the Panthers 45-15. Oconto Falls started off with a 3-2 decision win from Clayton Whiting at 152 over Bryce Karban, but Tyler Blanchard (160) answered with a 9-4 decision win for Coleman, beating Trevor Pankratz.

Aidan Stary gave Falls the lead, 6-3 with an 8-5 decision over Cole Klimek at 170, but that was the last of the Panther lead.

The Cougars reeled off six straight wins to take the lead for good. Jonathon Bieber (182) pinned Caleb Carlton in a minute, 24 seconds, Coby Den Ruyter (195) beat Jacob Kaminski 5-3 and Spencer Karban (220) pinned Elijah Zielinski in 2:27.

Brock Martinson (285) won by forfeit, while Chance Gruber (106) beat Jaden Ganter 6-0 and Koltin Grzybowski (113) edged Jager Eisch in a much-anticipated matchup, 4-2. The pair both figure to be at least competing for state berths this year.

The Panthers got a forfeit win at 120 from Collin Schindel and Bodee Woods (138) beat Karson Casper in a 6-5 decision for three more Panther points, but Coleman wasn't going to lose the match, with Kasey Casper (126) beating former state qualifier Tyler Budz 6-0, Caleb Gross (132) pinning Trevor Schindel in 1:57 and Jake Baldwin taking an uncontested win at the 145-pound class.
