SHAWANO – The dominance of the Stratford wrestling team continued Saturday with another impressive performance at the WIAA Division 3 individual sectional at Shawano High School.

The Tigers, who secured a spot in the WIAA State Team Wrestling Tournament with a team sectional victory on Tuesday, will have 11 at the individual state meet for the second year in a row as eight athletes won sectional titles and three others placed third.

The top three finishers in each of the 14 weight classes qualify for the 2017 WIAA State Individual Wrestling Tournament at the Kohl Center in Madison on Feb. 23-25.

Senior Kamren Bornbach will be back at state as he shoots for his third-straight Division 3 title. He won the 182-pound title the past two seasons and will take a 36-1 record into the 220-pound division after beating Max Villnow of Amherst 13-7 to capture the sectional crown.

Juniors A.J. Schoenfuss and Jeremy Schoenherr also will be back to shoot for their third-straight state titles.

Schoenfuss (32-5) pinned Matthew Grossman of Pittsville in 1:46 to win the 120-pound sectional title. He won state at 120 last year and 103 as a freshman in 2015.

Schoenherr, who was limited due to injuries throughout the season, improves to 14-0 after whipping Sammy VanStraten of Shiocton 7-2 to take the 138-pound sectional title. He will be looking to win a state title at his third different weight, taking the D-3 crown at 113 as a freshman and 126 last year.

Tyson Kauffman, a state champion as well last year for Stratford, also returns to Madison. Battling injuries himself throughout the season, Kauffman (12-5) finished third at 285-pounds. He lost in the championship match to Donovan Salewski of Coleman at the first-period buzzer, then forfeited a second-place wrestleback.

Senior Mason Kauffman, who won a 126-pound title two years ago and was forced to settle for a runner-up finish at 152 last year after suffering a heart ailment that sidelined him for the championship match at state, will take his 128-0 career record into this year’s state meet at 152. Kauffman won a major decision over Stetson Potrykus of Wittenberg-Birnamwood 10-1 to win the sectional title.

Also winning sectional titles to qualify for state for the Tigers were sophomore Manny Drexler at 106 pounds, sophomore Derek Marten at 126, junior Jake Drexler at 132, and senior David Marquardt at 160. Marten, Marquardt and Drexler also reached the state tournament last year.

Drexler (39-3) edged Cian Fischer of Weyauwega-Fremont 4-3, Marten (36-4) topped Aiden Wusterbarth of Oconto 8-5, Drexler (40-2) got by Sawyer Theobald of Shiocton 8-2, and Marquardt (35-4) blanked Nathaniel Morse of Athens 5-0, in their respective weight class championship matches.

Kade Ehrike (170) and Aiden Hoffman (195) both finished third to also qualify for state.

Auburndale had four sectional qualifiers, but none advanced to the state meet.

Dylan Baird (113), Dylan Altmann (152), and Kellar Wolfe (170) all finished fourth for the Apaches.

ATHENS – Stratford had 12 individual sectional qualifiers and cruised to the team title at the WIAA Division 3 wrestling regional on Saturday at Athens High School.

The Tigers piled up nine individual regional titles and 282.5 points to easily outpace second-place Athens (158) and third-place Edgar (152).

Auburndale placed fifth in the team standings with 132 points and had four wrestlers qualify for the individual sectional.

Stratford moves on to the WIAA Division 3 team sectional for the fourth year in a row. The Tigers will face a familiar foe, Coleman, in a sectional semifinal. Crandon and Weyauwega-Fremont will battle in the other semifinal, with both going simultaneously starting at 6 p.m. The championship dual will follow with the winner advancing to the 2017 WIAA State Team Wrestling Tournament at the University of Wisconsin Fieldhouse on March 3-4 in Madison.

Stratford beat Coleman at the sectional last year to advance to state after losing to them in both 2014 and 2015.

The top two finishers at the regional qualified for the Division 3 individual sectional next Saturday, Feb. 18, at Shawano High School. The top three finishers there move on to the 2017 WIAA State Individual Wrestling Tournament at the Kohl Center in Madison on Feb. 23-25.

“I was extremely pleased on the performance of our kids,” Stratford coach Joe Schwabe said. “They tried to capitalize on nearly every chance they had. A few even ‘out-performed,’ which is always nice. We got a little beat up on the day, but we hope our team depth will be able to bail us out come Tuesday for the team sectional against No.2-ranked Coleman.

“We have had the injury bug all season which has given others a chance to show what they have and makes everyone continue to work hard because you never know when you may get called up.”

Regional champions that will move on to the sectional for the Tigers are: Manny Drexler (106 pounds), A.J. Schoenfuss (120), Derek Marten (126), Jake Drexler (132), Jeremy Schoenherr (138), Mason Kauffman (152), David Marquardt (160), Kade Ehrike (170), and Kamren Bornbach (220).

Jordan Becker (145), Aiden Hoffman (195), and Tyson Kauffman (285) each lost their respective championship matches for Stratford, but will move on to the sectional.

Stratford freshman Max Schwabe, a Marawood Conference champion who had piled up a 29-1 record this season, was forced to miss the tournament due to the flu. Coach Joe Schwabe said he hopes to be ready for the team sectional Tuesday, and/or the state team tournament should the Tigers advance.

Dylan Baird won the 113-pound title for Auburndale, edging Carter Brunke of Athens 10-8 in the championship match.

Also qualifying for the sectional for the Apaches were Isaiah Hasenohrl at 126, Dylan Altmann at 152, and Kellar Wolfe at 170. Altmann and Wolfe both had to survive second-place wrestlebacks to move on.

Stratford piled up 367.5 points to take first place in Division 3 by nearly 200 points over Athens, which finished second with 169.

Marshfield ended up fourth in Division 1 with 188 points, just 1½ points behind third-place Eastview (Minn.). Sparta won the team title with 246 points.

“I thought overall we had a good tournament,” Marshfield coach Jackson Hein said. “We ran into some great competition around the state of Wisconsin and Minnesota.Last year we came away from this tournament with only one wrestler to place in the top 12 (Nolan Hertel) comparing to this year’s seven. This is a big improvement from a year ago and clearly shows that our wrestlers and program are headed in the right direction.”

Logan Zschernitz fought his way back through the consolation bracket to take fourth at 285 and is now 16-2 this season for the Rockets. Ashton Ackman finished 11th at 106. SC was eighth in Division 2 with 133.5 points. Ellsworth won the D-2 team title.

Auburndale also competed in the event, but did not have any wrestlers finish in the top 12. The Apaches finished 13th in the Division 3 team standings.
