Marines Win Home

NEC Mega Meet

With Four Rounds

in the 70's


Marinette won the North Eastern Conference MegaMeet at Little River Country Club on Friday, beating every other school by at least 25 strokes.

Marinette shot a 311 as a team. Freedom's 336 was the second-place score. Playing on their home turf, the Marines got four scores under 80.

Kelten Hermanson and Trey Kretz both shot 77s, Brady Eastman carded a 78, and Keegan Polomis bounced back from a 42 on the front nine with a 37 on the back nine to score a 79. Dominic Smerchek's 115 was dropped.

Eastman's 78 perhaps stands out. Eastman has stepped into the Marines' top four as a freshman and posted strong scores so far in NEC play.

"I played the round of my life," Eastman said of his round at Little River on Friday. "I hit the ball really well, and my putting was much better than earlier in the year. I made some great putts, one being a 40-footer for birdie."

Oconto Falls shot a 363 as a team, sixth in the meet. Rease Hodkiewicz shot a 90, followed by 91s from Trevor Metzler, Kadyn Riel, and Caden Leonhardt. Thomas Carmody shot a 93.



Oconto Takes Crivitz

Invite Crown,

Peshtigo's Bauman

is Medalist


Oconto won the eight-team Crivitz Invite at Hunter's Glen on Friday, while Peshtigo's Grant Bauman posted a medalist round of 71, one stroke under par.

Bauman's score was one of his top performances of the season. He birdied holes two and four and put up an eagle on the par-5 seventh in route to a one-under 35 on the front nine. On the back nine, he hit par, with an eagle on the par-5 17th the standout.

"Grant Bauman played some great golf in the wind today," Peshtigo coach Jim Dufrane said. "Just like last spring, he continues to improve his game as we head toward conference and regionals."

Oconto's top golfer was Christian Koch, who shot an 80, including an eagle on the par-4 eighth hole. Josh Maynard shot an 84, Drew Reinhardt carded an 86, and David Westenberg's 91 rounded out the team's top four. Carter Koch's 96 was dropped.

"I'm extremely proud of the performance by the team," Oconto coach Rick Sherman said. "They've embraced what's being taught and showed steady improvement. I'm looking forward to the remaining weeks of the season."

Crivitz and Peshtigo tied for third with 359 apiece. After Bauman's medalist round, Logan Smith shot a 93, Travis Lund carded a 96, and Alex Raygo finished with a 99. The Bulldogs were without Christian Boyle, who was coming off his season-best score at Peninsula State Park the night before.

"We saw a nice, consistent showing from Logan, Travis and Alex," Dufrane said. "As we continue to see improvement from each player, we are building confidence, which we will need over the next few weeks."

For Crivitz, Kaden Klaver's 85 and Joey Pickett's 86 were the two top scores. Jake Kosmecki shot a 93, Jack Bauer carded a 95, and TJ Mueller finished with a 100.

After 373 and 376 from Three Lakes and Crandon, respectively, Coleman was seventh with a 400. Oneida Nation shot a 403 as a team to take eighth.

STAA shot a 436, led by Kaiden Bailey. He recorded a 34 on the front nine, the best of any golfer. He finished with a 40 on the back nine to shoot 74, second to Bauman for medalist honors.

"It was good to see Kaiden bounce back today," STAA coach George Hayes said. "He felt after the round that he had some parts of his game to work on, but he was much better on Friday at Hunter's Glen than he was the day before on his home course. That's what's so good about Kaiden. He is able to identify areas where he is making mistakes and he is willing to put the work to improve his play."

Theron Thayer shot a 90, Chase Gromala carded a 131, Brady Smith recorded a 141, and Tayen Schwartz shot a 158.

Thayer's score was the best of his high school career so far. He started with eights on his first two par-four holes but bounced back to finish strong.

Marinette's leader was Owen Hansen with a 101, followed by Bryce Gamlin with a 110. Parker Thill shot a 116, Brayden Dunse shot a 126, and Mike Phillips carded a 133.

Oneida Nation recorded a 542, which includes a 180 for not having a fourth golfer. Nate Olsen shot a 104, Oren Loukus shot a 117, and Hannah Pech carded a 141.

Florence shot a 574. The Bobcats' four golfers were Gavin Holdaway (133), Dom Axely (135), Isaiah Fennesy (149), and Zach Boettcher (157).



Marines Dominate

the Field at STAA

Invitational


Marinette had four of the top five individual performances at the STAA Invite at Riverside Country Club on Thursday.

Four Marines finished with individual scores of 83 or better, giving Marinette a 318 team score, with Lena's 374 the second-best team total.

Trey Kretz recorded a medalist round of 77, followed closely by 79s from teammates Kelten Hermanson and Keegan Polomis.

Brady Eastman started his back nine with a two-shot birdie on 10. He finished the day with an 83.

Aiden Sadurski's 127 was dropped from the fifth spot.

Lena's Braden McVane shot 41s on both the front and back nine to shoot an 82 and take fourth place individually. Drake Dionne (95), Mason Simonson (97), and Mason Belongia (100) made up the rest of the Wildcat top four. Dane Commins' 115 was dropped.

Coleman shot a 426. Kamron Kostrova shot a 90, Linconln Henry finished with a 99, and Evan Hockers shot a 115. Aubrey Bintz shot a 122 and Ramiro Cortez scored a 138 to round out the Cougars' scores.

Crivitz carded a 447. Jack Bauer's 100 was the Wolverines' best, followed by 103 from TJ Mueller, 115 from Joey Pickett, Marcus Eiting's 129, and Maisen Eiting's 131.

At their home invite, STAA carded a 482, ahead of sixth-place Stockbridge. Kaiden Bailey shot a 91, with a 48 on the back nine.

"Kaiden had a tough day on Thursday. He struggled with his swing and just could not get it under control until late in the round," STAA coach George Hayes said. "Unfortunately, by the time he had things figured out, it was too late to post a score that he would feel good about."

Theron Thayer also recorded a 48 on the back nine to score a 94. Chase Gromala shot a 148 and both Tayen Schwartz and Brady Smith carded 149s.

"Theron had another solid round of golf. He continues to finish in the top ten of many of our events. Theron has been our most consistent performer so far this year," Hayes said. "Chase, Tayen, Brady and Matthew continue to try to lower their scores. They are all so new to the game and it just takes time and lots of work to get better. The more work these young golfers put in the better they will score."

Niagara also had three golfers: Nate Olsen (109), Oren Loukus (113), and Hannah Pech (150).



Bulldogs Finish Second

at Packerland Meet


The Peshtigo Bulldogs put up a good team performance in a Packerland Conference meet at Peninsula State Park Golf Course on Thursday, but came up just short of a team win.

The Bulldogs shot a 181, good for second, four strokes back from Sturgeon Bay. The Clippers had five golfers shoot between 41 and 49 on the day.

Peshtigo's Grant Bauman, as he's done all year, led the field with a 39. He parred five holes and had one birdie. His only double bogey came on the ninth hole, where he shot a six.

Christian Boyle shot a 41 from the second spot in the Bulldog lineup. It was his best score of the season.

"Post-round he shared that he felt very comfortable with the course, which boosted his confidence leading to a strong score," Peshtigo coach Kyle Cheney said.

Travis Lund (50) and Alex Raygo (51) occupied the third and fourth spots for Peshtigo.

"Travis Lund and Alex Raygo both came in a couple shots under their season scoring average which was great to see," Cheney said. "If they can both continue to both build momentum, our team will be positioned to close the season strong."

Oconto shot a 192 as a team. David Westenberg's 46 led the Blue Devils on the day, followed by 48s from Christian and Carter Koch, 50 from Drew Reinhardt, and 58 from Connor Huggett.

Southern Door's 184 was third of the five teams that qualified for team scores. NEW Lutheran shot a 246.



Lena Wins M&O Meet

at Thornberry Creek


Lena narrowly edged Coleman and five other M&O Conference teams at Thornberry Creek on Monday.

At the meet hosted by Oneida Nation, Lena shot a 193, four strokes up on Coleman's 197. The Wildcats' Braden McVane and Drake Dionne each carded 46s, followed by 50 from KC Miller and 51 by Mason Simonson. Evander Vanderzanden shot a 64.

For Coleman, Kamron Kostrova recorded a 45, followed by 48 from Liam Zeitler, 52s by Lincoln Henry and Evan Hockers, and a 56 from Aubrey Bintz.

Crivitz shot a 201 as a team. Kaden Klaver's 45 led the team, followed by Jack Bauer (51), Joey Pickett (52), Maisen Eiting (53), and Jake Kosmecki (62).

After Oneida's 217 was a 222 from Saint Thomas Aquinas Academy, boosted by a medalist round of 42 from Kaiden Bailey.

After Bailey, Theron Thayer shot a 51, Chase Gromala carded a 63, Brady Smith shot a 66, and Tayen Schwartz recorded a 70.

"It was an extremely windy day at Thornberry Creek on Monday. That made it difficult for everyone," STAA coach George Hayes said. "It took a while for our players to adjust to the fast greens."

Gillett shot a 252, with four scores in the 60s. Devin Waranka's 61 led the team, followed closely by Taylor Schuster (62), Elsa Limberg (63), and Laney DeBauch (66).

Niagara carded a 295, which includes a 100 for not having a fourth golfer. Oren Loukus shot a 60, Hannah Pech carded a 63, and Nate Olsen scored a 72.



Marinette Grabs

Another NEC Win

at River Island GC


Marinette shot a 317 to win the North Eastern Conference match at River Island in Oconto Falls.

It was Keegan Polomis' turn to lead the way for the Marines, as he shot a 77 to earn medalist honors.

Polomis said it was a difficult round for the team, despite the big win.

"It was a rough round for the team, but we dug it out to win another match," he said. "I need to work on my putting but I hit the ball well today off the tee."

Trey Kretz shot a 78, Brady Eastman shot an 80, Kelten Hermanson shot an 82, and Owen Hansen's 98 was dropped.

Playing on their home course, Oconto Falls was fourth with a 348, one stroke behind third-place Freedom and 12 back from second-place Wrightstown.

The Panthers' leader was Kadyn Riel, who stepped in and shot a 79. Thomas Carmody carded an 87, Rease Hodkiewicz finished with a 90, Trevor Metzler carded a 92, and Caden Leonhardt shot a 97.
