Marinette/Coleman Claim Conference Crowns

Issue Date: May 27, 2021

Marines Claim NEC Crown, Finish Conference Season Undefeated

The writing has been on the wall for some time, but it doesn't make it any less sweet for the Marinette Marines to win the North Eastern Conference, with the NEC season coming to an end Tuesday at Brown County Golf Course.

The Marines shot a 319 to win the meet and cap off an undefeated conference slate.

Ty Kretz was medalist, as he has been at every meet this year, shooting a 75. It wasn't his best score of the season, as he shot mostly scores in the 60s this year. However, a 75 is nothing to scoff at, especially on what was a windy day on the course.

"What can I say? He's by far the best player (in the conference)," Marinette coach Pete Kretz said. "Without him, it brings the conference back together, but with him, we dominate."

Ty Kretz earned player of the year honors for the third time in his career, missing only the Covid cancelled 2020 season. "It feels good I had a lot of low scores this year, most of my rounds were in the 60's. I came back a better player than I was in those first two years." said Ty Kretz, who finished the regular season undefeated as an individual.

It was also a standout day for Trey Kretz, who overcame a six and seven on the first two holes of the back nine to shoot his best round of the year at 77.

"I played probably some of the best golf I've played in a long time. I was hitting the ball close and just rolling up the putts, feeling a lot better about my swing," Trey Kretz said. "I was striking the ball a lot better, so I didn't really find myself in any trouble. I didn't lose a ball or anything today."

Ty Kretz said it was a good confidence booster for Trey and the rest of the team going into regional play. He said the team can still take some strokes off its score going forward, starting with his 75.

"I'm glad Trey played well, he needed that confidence booster going into sectionals and regionals, Kelten played well, Keegan also," he said. "I didn't play my greatest today, but I can get it back soon and get ready for regionals and sectionals."

Kelten Hermanson shot an 81 and Keegan Polomis carded an 86 to round out Marinette's top four.

"It was a great experience getting to play such a nice course out here today," Polomis said. "The winds were obviously a factor today, but we just kind of put it together. We knew what the conditions were going to be like coming in here and we got it done, got done what we needed to get done."

Terrance Nicklaus came back from a 55 front nine for a 99 after a 44 on the back nine.

"The back nine I definitely got more accustomed to it, but the front nine was a bit more rough, especially getting a feel for the ball and the greens," Nicklaus said. "I came around. The front nine was definitely more difficult."

Coach Kretz said one of the team's goals was to dominate the conference. Having done that, they'll be looking for more.

"We had those expectations for ourselves, because we knew what we're capable of doing," Hermanson said.

Cougars Finish Strong to Claim M&O Golf Title

The Coleman Cougars are M&O conference champions after a run of four straight meet wins to end the season.

Coleman won five of six meets on the season, with St. Thomas Aquinas Academy taking the second meet of the year and briefly holding a conference lead. In the end, Coleman's experience and depth got it done, however.

Coleman shot a 370 as a team at the Lena 18-hole meet on Tuesday to beat STAA by 37 strokes on the night and 114 overall, 1,359 to 1,473.

Karson Casper carded an 84, the second-best score of all golfers. Dylan Marquardt shot a 92, while Kamron Kostrova and Ember DeWitt's 97s rounded out the Coleman top four. Liam Zeitler shot a 109.

"It feels great. They started out, they grew the whole year and we started out a little bit behind, fought back up and the kids all worked really hard," Coleman coach Dan Perry said.

The Cougars played many of their meets without Casper, who also plays for the Coleman baseball team.

"The team really rallied around Dylan, Kamron and Ember, the seniors, and they've done a great job," Perry said. "Karson, when he comes, is always in the mix for medalist For the Regional we will have a full team and we look pretty solid to qualify for sectional."

STAA's Kaden Bailey was the medalist on the day with a 79. He was the medalist for all but one conference meet this year, shooting under 80 in all but one meet.

"Kaden did a great job all year. He was steady all year long," STAA coach George Hayes said of his freshman. "The sky is the limit for Kaden. He's just a really, really good player. He works at the game, he puts the time in that needs to be done, he knows the game well and he just hits the ball a ton. He's hitting drives off the tee that are just incredible for a freshman. He's not a big guy, and it just comes down to that he knows how to play the game and he knows what's needed to hit the ball hard and hit the ball long."

Alex Powers carded a 94, Theron Thayer recorded a 101, Dominic Piasecki shot a 133 and Chase Gromala's 149 was dropped.

Powers helped the team along with his leadership despite battling some injuries this season, Hayes said. Thayer also missed some time this year as well. Gromala and Blake DeDemos were playing for the first time this year, Hayes said. Piasecki is a senior.

"We're happy to be second behind Coleman. Coleman had a really solid team all year long and they certainly earned the conference championship," Hayes said.

Bailey finished as the conference's best golfer by 37 strokes.

"It feels pretty good. Considering it's my first year, I've been competitive ever since I was eight years old, but it feels really good to show what I can do in high school competition," Bailey said.

He said finishing as MVP of the conference wasn't an explicit goal of his, but now that he's done it, he's setting his goals.

"I just figured play my best this year and if that shows what I can do and I win the conference, so be it," Bailey said. Asked what his goals are now, he answered, "win three more."

He was joined on the first-team all-conference list by Coleman's Dylan Marquardt and Kamron Kostrova, along with Peyton Betts of Wausaukee and Kia Fiddler of Oneida.

Making up the second team were DeWitt, KC Miller and Mason Simonson of Lena and the Crivitz pair of Maisen Eiting and Joey Pickett.

Crivitz (1,498) and Lena (1,514) were third and fourth in the conference and third and fourth at Monday's meet.

On Monday, Crivitz (415) got a 98 from Eiting, 105s from Pickett and TJ Mueller, a 107 from Jake Bauer and Jake Kosmecki shot a 125.

For Lena (423), Simonson (92) and Braden McVane (93) led the way, followed by Miller at 103 and Evan Vanderzanden at 133.

Wausaukee shot a 489 as a team, with 99s from Alex Wojcik and Betts, 128 by Lukas Edlebeck and 163 from Devin Bergemann.

Niagara was sixth, with Oneida seventh. Niagara's scores are as follows: Nate Olsen 123, Ava Newingham 136, Oren Loukus 137, Gavin Holdaway 140.

Bulldogs Win Packerland 9-Hole Event at Idlewild G.C.

Peshtigo continues to dominate the Packerland Conference golf circuit, and Oconto remains the consistent number two following Thursday's conference stop at Idlewild Golf Course in Sturgeon Bay.

Peshtigo shot its best score of the season with a 152. Jordan Carvenough and Adam Bauman each carded 37s, while Grant Bauman and Christian Boyle's 39s put them three over par each.

The Bulldogs surprised coach Kyle Cheney with their best score of the season on what was a windy day on a difficult course.

"Idlewild is a tricky course with a lot of out of bounds and water hazards," Cheney said. "The wind was blowing hard off the bay, and I really thought we would be challenged. Before heading out to the course, we got the team together and asked for strong mental play with a focus on targeting the largest part of the fairways and greens. As the scores started coming in, I was truly surprised by the results, which totaled 152 and our best team score of the season."

Oconto's 177 was second in the conference once again, as they've been all year.

Will Sherman shot a 38, Josh Maynard finished with a 43, Josh Delzer recorded a 45 and both Christian Koch and David Westenberg finished at 51.

Southern Door and Sturgeon Bay were next as teams, with 193 and 200, respectively.



Marinette Comes Up Short in Dual With Kohler at

Black Wolf Run


The Marinette Marines haven't lost in the NEC Conference all season, but they did take a non-conference dual loss to a good Kohler side at the Meadows at Black Wolf Run this week.

Kohler has a consistently good team from top to bottom that was on display against Marinette, with Kohler golfers shooting 77, 81, 86 and 87 for a total of 331 on their home course to Marinette's 343.

For Marinette, Ty Kretz led all golfers with a 76. Kelten Hermanson, Trey Kretz and Keegan Polomis scored 86, 87 and 94, respectively, to round out the Marinette four. Terrance Nicklaus saw his 101 dropped on the day.
