Four Marines Named to NEC's First Team

Issue Date: November 24, 2021

All-Conference

Marinette soccer, football and volleyball athletes earned 17 all-conference team spots in the 2021 fall season.

Marinette put six players on the soccer all-conference awards list.

Seniors Noah Cegelski and Keegan Polomis were joined by junior midfielder Dominic Smerchek on the conference first team.

Cegelski was a unanimous first-team selection for the second straight season despite missing some time with injury. He played mostly forward but filled in at center forward for coach Jason Smerchek's team.

"Great all-around player," coach Smerchek said.

Polomis led the team with 18 assists and was second on the team with 13 goals.

"He created many chances for us by beating teams along the left side of the field and finding open players," coach Smerchek said.

Dominic Smerchek was the third-leading goalscorer in the conference in conference games. He scored 16 total goals with 10 assists, controlling the middle of the field.

"The three of them really worked well together, combining on many passes and goals," coach Smerchek said. "The three of them accounted for 70% of our goals scored and 74% of the assists."

Junior forward Ayden Blystone and senior defender Robbie Hruska made the second team.

Hruska played the season in a sweeper role and "was key to shutting down the opposing team's attack," coach Smerchek said. "Had great speed, instincts and determination."

Bylstone was the team's fourth-leading scorer, playing as right forward.

"Always hustled to win the ball," coach Smerchek said. "Provided an outlet to the midfield to work the ball up the field and also create goal-scoring opportunities."

Landon Reek, the Marinette goalkeeper, earned an honorable mention as a sophomore. It was his first year playing the position.

"This position was an unknown coming into the season with our goalie graduating last year. It became a position of strength for us," coach Smerchek said. "Landon continued to improve all season. He has good hands and is aggressive coming off his line."

For the Marinette football team, senior running back Adam Lemery was a unanimous first-team selection.

Lemery finished the season with 208 carries for 889 yards and 10 rushing touchdowns. In addition, he passed for 488 yards and three touchdowns and caught a touchdown.

Marinette coach Nathan Anderson said Lemery, a three-year starter for the Marines, was "one of the top power style running backs in the area."

Senior offensive lineman Mathew Twork and senior wide receiver Bret Whiting were on the second team offense and junior defensive end Landon Corwin-Young made the second-team defense.

Twork had six pancake blocks, with Anderson describing him as a "good blocker in open space, runs well, tough, smart and reliable."

Whiting caught 19 passes for 380 yards and two touchdowns, running 51 times for 162 yards as well.

Anderson said Whiting makes contested catches, has good hands, and runs at an above-average speed, all helping make him a good receiver.

Corwin-Young made 39 tackles, eight for loss, with one sack, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

"Our best player on defense this past year," Anderson said. "Smart and disciplined football player."

Earning honorable mentions were senior offensive lineman Ian Baumgarten, senior defensive tackle John Boyce, Lemery as an inside linebacker and three defensive backs: Whiting, sophomore Duncan Jackson and senior Braden Bizzelle.

Luxemburg-Casco senior running back Isaac Vandenbush won offensive player and back of the year. Denmark senior offensive lineman Owen DeGrand was offensive lineman of the year.

Denmark seniors Kenny Satori and Hayden Konkol were the defensive lineman and defensive back of the year, respectively. Lux-Casco senior Joe Chervenka was the defensive lineman of the year.

Maci Monnette was the lone Marine to earn all-conference honors in volleyball, as the junior earned an honorable mention.

Monnette, a team captain, was first on the team in kills, second in passes, and only missed six serves all season in conference and tournament games.

"She continuously showed hard work, reliability and progression throughout the season. In addition to the physical stats, I firmly believe Maci put her heart and soul into the game," Marinette coach Tayah Hampton said. "She led the varsity team with confidence and gratitude, pushed others to their best potential and encouraged not only her varsity teammates but the JV players from the stands and during workouts or drills with the exact attitude we as coaches look for even when our performance and attitude as a team wasn't the best."

Oconto Falls had three players make all-conference. Hailey Peitersen was a first-team all-around player in her senior year, senior Emmie Magnin made second team and senior Grace Oninski was an honorable mention.

Peitersen, the team's setter, was voted the Panthers' co-MVP with Magnin and earned an all-state honorable mention as well.

Peitersen dished out 738 assists and finished off 165 kills on a team-best .220 hitting percentage as well.

"Hailey was our offensive leader, our quarterback of the team," Oconto Falls coach Rochell Otto said. "Hailey caught the eyes of coaches around the state, which led to making honorable mention all-state as well."

Magnin was the team's go-to hitter, finishing with a team-high 343 kills, second among middle hitters in the conference.

"Emmie was our go-to hitter," Otto said. "While she was stellar in the middle, we capitalized on her versatility and would swing her on the outside along with on the right."

Oninksi was voted the team's most improved player. Moving from a right side spot to middle hitter, "her presence in the middle was a big part of the team's success this season," Otto said. She finished with 171 kills, fifth among middle hitters in the conference.

Madison Uelman earned the Panthers' team spirit award.

Luxemburg-Casco senior Emma Johnson was the unanimous NEC volleyball player of the year.
