M&O Announces Basketball and Wrestling All Conference Selections

Issue Date: April 20, 2022

Lena's Max Beyer Named

M&O Most Vaulable Player


The M&O boys All Conference selections were realized and the list contains a couple Wolverines and a Wildcat, along with one Cougar.

This years selections were led by the Wolverines who were able to post two players to the first team in Sean Christiansen and Tegan Werner with Werner securing the years top defensive player award.

Taking the years MVP was none other than the point machine out of Lena, Max Beyer, who dazzled the M&O spectators this year with his many buckets.

Lena head coach Fritz Weidner could not be more excited for his stalwart court leader saying, "No one worked harder for what he got than Max, he is the very definition of a gym rat and a pleasure to coach.  He would come to our practice, put work in then head to the Bond Center with his dad and continue to work on his shot and overall game; he would even spend time after practice working in the gym when we had a late practice.

The hours of work he put in when no one was watching paid off for him this season.  For the second season in a row he led the conference in scoring at nearly 24 points per game.  At times he would take control of the game with his perimeter shooting. He had a stretch of three or four games toward the end of the season where he shot nearly 75% from behind the arc; I've never seen shooting like that from any high school athlete.  He ended up breaking multiple scoring records this season for us; most threes is a game with ten; most threes in a season with 83, most threes in a career with 213, and he ended up the second all time leading scorer with 1628 career points."  

Weidner went to to say, "Despite the fact that he was our leading scorer, he is very much a team first player; I can guarantee that he would give up all of his points in order for us to win a conference championship or make a run to sectionals or state.  He did what was necessary to make us the best team possible.  Max along with the rest of this year's seniors are going to be impossible to replace.  I know Max would tell you that none of his accomplishments would be possible without his teammates.  Max earned the conference player of the year and was also selected to play in the D5 All-Star game in the Dells this summer.  He's such a special kid that no matter what he does in life he will be successful."

Coleman's first team selection this season was in standout shooter Noah Nosgovitz. Head coach Jeff Bronson commented on his importance to the Coleman program this year saying, " Noah continued his success that he started with basketball last year. Coming into this year, Noah was bigger and stronger than he was last year and you could see that in his play."

Bronson continued, "Noah appeared more confident in playing through contact on his drives and finishing in traffic.  Noah easily has three point range, but he is his best when he attacks the rim. Like football, Noah was a team leader.  Noah was one a few players that had experience on the  varsity floor last year and he was looked upon to show how to react to both good and bad situations. Noah easily could have let playing with a mask slow his year down, but he continued to play at a high level  and he didn't let a few frustrating moments get in his way. Noah's enthusiasm was contagious and that helped the team have success. Noah either led the team or was close to the team leader in points, rebounds and assists."

M&O second teamers were Gillett's Aydin Franti and Ben Matczak. Niagara's Tommy Martin. Lena's Logan Shallow and Coleman's Eli Zablocki.

Making the honorable mentions list were Crivitz's Seth Sellen and Brady Tadisch. Gillett's Jesse DeBauch and Austin VandeCorput. Coleman's Logan Kurth and Joe Olsen. STAA's Ethan Braley and Suring's Jeremy Hensel and Ethan Lally.



Coleman's Aubrey Bintz

Tops M&O MVP Balloting


The M&O has released the selections for the 2021-2022 girls basketball season and it was the Coleman Cougars who were honored with this years MVP award. An award that was earned by their stand out court leader Aubrey Bintz.

The first team this year was evenly divided amongst M&O teams with no team taking more than one spot on the first team.

Joining Bintz on the list were Gillett's Carleigh Kaczmarek, Lena's Natalie McNurlen, Niagara's Josie Rock and Suring's Christine Sleeter.

This year's top defensive player went to Gillett's Naomi Anker.

This years MVP was an award taken by Coleman's Aubrey Bintz and Coleman head coach Todd Olsen could not be prouder of his standout and the team that surrounds her, "Having a young team this year and returning only 4 varsity players, Aubrey stepped into the leadership role that was needed after losing so many seniors from last year's team," said Olsen. "Aubrey puts a lot of time in the offseason to get better.  At practices, she pushes her teammates to get better and work hard every day.  During the games she is an ultra competitor.  She will play hard on both offense and defense.  When she is not in the game, she will be the first to celebrate a great play by a teammate."

Olsen continued, "She led the team in points scored, assists, and steals.  She was also second in rebounding.  Aubrey stepped up when the team needed her and was a big part of the success we had as a team this past season."

For the Badgers of Niagara Josie Rock stood out as one of the years best as the junior made the list at first team.

Her coach Karl Lamoreaux commented, "Josie is an all around player. She is able to score in several ways but she also led the team in steals and deflections.  She is always working on improving so I am excited to see what next season holds for her and our team."

Lena's Natalie McNurlen also made the first team list for her efforts in her junior year as a Wildcat.

Lena Head Coach Tim Goldschmidt commented saying, "Natalie has improved her offensive game mostly by being confident. She has learned & expanded her game to be a scorer. She also understands the importance of team play & sets up others to score making her team hard to defend. Natalie is a very hard worker who finds time in her busy schedule to always work on her basketball skills throughout the year. She was top ten in every category this year in conference showing that she is a complete player. Natalie is a pleasure to coach & very  well rounded in her academics also which will lead to a very successful career beyond high school. Natalie is the type of person who helps her teammates to succeed by helping them whenever needed which shows her passion to improvement to others to reach the ultimate team goals by putting herself aside to accomplish what is needed to succeed in a team atmosphere."

Making the second team for the girls were Gillett's Alaina Herzog, Coleman's Desiree Nowak and Cameron Zeitler while Wausaukee's Rachel?Schlies also made the list.



Coleman's Karson Casper Voted Wrestler of the Year

The M&O conference released its all conference elections for the 2022 season and it was the Coleman Cougars who dominated the list, taking 11 spots on the first team.

For the Cougars the list of first teamers included Will Bieber, Damian Burke, Karson Casper, Brady Gross, Chance Grueber, Cole Klimek, Micah Kuchta, Ray Lemiuex, Conner Markiewicz, John Nowak and Brody Zahn. Of that list Karson Casper was selected as the years most outstanding wrestler.

Coleman Head Coach Kevin Casper took time to talk about his wrestling team saying, "Connor Markiewicz , John Nowak  and Chance Gruber all had very good seasons and were each one win away from qualifying for State taking 4th in Sectionals.  Chance is a two x state wrestler but fell one win away this year from getting there. Ray Lemieux Is a 3 x state qualifier, qualifying again this year . Brady Gross had 42 wins on the season and qualified for State this year which was excellent. Micha Kuchta had a super year for a freshman qualifying for state and ending up one match away from placing at state."

Casper continued, "Will Bieber had A tremendous year taking fourth at state and beating some very good kids along the way. Cole Klimek had a great career and a super year taking fourth at state and beating some excellent kids throughout the year. Good leader and hard working!  Dameon Burke had a very good year as a freshman especially at a weight class of 220 where you're wrestling mainly upperclassman. Brody Zahn I'm very proud of Brody in the year that he had beating some awesome heavy weights along the way and taking third in the state.  Very hard working! Great accomplishment."

Casper finished his comments with his most outstanding wrestler Karson Casper saying, "Lastly Karson Casper, MVP of the Conference. Karson had an outstanding career one of our senior leaders, a 4x state wrestler, 3x State finalist and now a 2x State Champion beating a wrestler that was 51-0 and that kid had beaten him the year before in the state finals. To turn the tables and Pin the kid in :59 seconds is pretty special. Very proud of all of our wrestlers. They are great kids that work hard but mostly proud of them because of the character and respect they show to others win or lose."

The Wildcats of Lena were also well represented on the list as Dylan Comins and Sam Marquardt made the list.

Coach Chad Misco commented, "Dylan set a school record for wins this year with 50, placed 6th at state and was healthy all year and was solid all year long." He continued, "Sam fell a little short of his goal this year at state but has made improvements all year long as well as year to year.  Had 39 wins this year and was a leader on and off the mat.  Only a junior and will be even stronger next year.  He was a 4 sport athlete"

He also took time to comment on his honorable mention Joh Kristoff saying, "Kristof was probably the most improved wrestler on my team.  Battled injuries all year long and was able to advance to sectionals with a first place finish at regionals."

Crivitz also placed two wrestlers on the first team with the section of Kyle Guy and T.J. Mueller.

Gillett/Suring's Lone selection was Trent VanDenElzen.
