SPARTA – The Marshfield wrestling team had three individual champions and placed third in the team standings at the Sparta Invitational on Saturday at Sparta High School.

Gabe Pugh (113 pounds), Caden Dennee (120) and Sam Mitchell (195) won individual titles for the Tigers, who finished with 159 points.

Holmen won the team title with 269 points, with Sparta second at 176.

Pugh, a freshman, topped Kody Klonecki of Holmen 5-4 in the 113-pound championship match to improve to 30-3 this season.

Dennee (19-7) pinned Carter Vetsch of Holmen in 41 seconds in the 120-pound title match, and Mitchell (31-2) also won by pin, downing Lucas Ingold of Neillsville/Greenwood/Loyal in 5:23.

“Sparta is a great opportunity for the Marshfield wrestling team to run into some quality wrestlers throughout the state,” Marshfield coach Jackson Hein said. “Placing top-three at this tournament as a team is a good day, as we were missing some of our starters. It was great to see Pugh, Dennee and Mitchell all reach the top of the podium.”

Marshfield had five other wrestlers earn top-eight finishes.

Tanner Kanable took second at 126, losing in the title match to Mason McMillen of Reedsburg 10-4. Caden Pearce (138), Isaac Slark (182) and Connor Berry (285) each finished fourth, and Payton Young was eighth at 152.

Another big win tonight was from Issac Slark, jumping up a weight class to find a way to win 12-6 in a back and forth match with Everest’s Colton Bundy.

MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield wrestling team improved to 3-0 in the Wisconsin Valley Conference with a 52-18 victory over Merrill on Friday night at Marshfield High School

Prior to the varsity meet, former Marshfield High School wrestler Tyler Manthe was honored by the Tigers. Manthe, 21, died in an automobile crash in August. A scholarship and donation for equipment was made to the Marshfield wrestling club by Manthe’s mother, Gidget, and her husband, Cory Tobin.

“I knew when our guys stepped out on the mat they were fighting for more than a win,” Marshfield coach Jackson Hein said. “There is much more to wrestling than what meets the eye. It brings people together. It’s about family and helping each other out. It’s about creating new memories as well as teaching us all how to deal with adversity. I’m really proud of how we competed tonight as a team, but even more proud of who we competed for. There is a reason why ‘family’ is one of Marshfield’s core values, it is the backbone to our wrestling program and the Marshfield community.”

The Tigers are tied with D.C. Everest for first place in the conference and wrestles at Everest next Thursday.

Caden Dennee (120 pounds), Tanner Kanable (126), Bentley Schwanebeck-Ostermann (170), Sam Mitchell (195), and Alex Brost (220) won by pin for the Tigers. All but Schwanebeck-Ostermann’s came in the first period of their respective matches.

Spencer Wirthlin added a technical fall victory at 132, Caden Pearce (138) and Nolan Hertel (145) won by major decision, Payton Young (152) won by decision, and Gabe Pugh (113) won by forfeit for Marshfield.

LA CROSSE – Make it five in a row for Stratford.

The Stratford wrestling team won three individual titles and had two other top-three finishes to roll to its fifth-straight Division 3 title at the Bi-State Wrestling Classic on Dec. 29-30 at the La Crosse Center.

Manny Drexler (106 pounds), Jake Drexler (145) and Aiden Hoffman (195) won individual titles for Stratford. A.J. Schoenfuss finished second at 126 pounds and Dylan Schoenherr was third at 220 as the Tigers racked up a whopping 319.5 points to beat second-place Goodhue (Minn.) by 148 points in the Division 3 standings.

Auburndale finished ninth in D-3 with 69 points.

Marshfield was second in Division 1 with 229 points, trailing only Holmen (342), and Spencer/Columbus Catholic also earned a runner-up spot by taking second in Division 2 with 199 points as Luxemburg-Casco won the team title with 263 points.

Drexler beat Lucas Joniaux of Luxemburg-Casco 5-1, Drexler topped Teagan Miller of Mauston in overtime 5-3, and Hoffman edged Riverdale’s Caleb Johnson 3-2 to claim titles for Stratford.

Spencer/Columbus senior Hunter Luepke (24-0), a defending WIAA Division 2 state champion, continued his torrid streak this season by pinning undefeated Drew Hennessey of Iowa-Grant/Highland in 1:39 to win the 220-pound title. Luepke pinned all six of his opponents in a total time of 13:29 at the two-day tournament, earning an award for Most Pins in Shortest Amount of Time.

The Rockets also got a second-place finish from junior Logan Zschernitz (23-1), who was pinned in the 285-pound championship match by Cole Godbout of Hudson in 1:10.

“As a whole we wrestled very well at one of the best tournaments in the state,” Spencer/Columbus coach Jake Zschernitz said. “Hunter dominated the competition. Logan wrestled very well, but fell a little short of where he wanted to be. Ash, Dom, and Bryce all had really good tournaments and a bunch of the other guys picked up much needed team points. I’m extremely proud of the guys effort this weekend and it definatly showed in the
team scores. We held our own and beat some of the top teams in our division.”

Marshfield had three third-place finishers.

Freshman Gabe Pugh took third at 113 pounds, beating Carter Jonsgaard of Lewiston-Altura/Rushford-Peterson (Minn.) 3-0; Bentley Schwanebeck-Ostermann defeated Kaleb O’Reilly of Goodhue 6-3 at 170; and Sam Mitchell beat Noah Friedl of Royall in an ultimate tiebreaker at 220 to all finish third for the Tigers.

“All wrestlers that competed scored points for the Tigers, and made big improvements throughout the tournament,” Marshfield coach Jackson Hein said. “Getting the opportunity to wrestle some of the best teams in the state of Wisconsin and Minnesota served as solid measurement for where we stand as a team and at each individual weight class. The second day of the tournament is a true test for each competitor. That is when hard work, dedication, and heart takes over to help win big matches. To have three guys win in that last round to take home third place at their weight classes was huge.”

Auburndale’s only wrestler to finish in the top 12 in their respective weight class was Keller Wolfe, who took sixth at 170 pounds after losing a fifth-place match to Tyler Hannah of Viroqua 3-1.

Other local wrestlers to place in the top 12 were: Spencer/Columbus Ashton Ackman (sixth, 106), Dominick Wichlacz (eighth 120) and Bryce Shaw (eighth 145); Stratford’s Derek Marten (sixth 132), Jordan Becker (sixth 152) and Max Schwabe (eighth 138); and Marshfield’s Tanner Kanable (sixth 126), Nolan Hertel (sixth 145), Caden Pearce (seventh 138) and Alex Brost (eighth 220).

Peace pinned Schwabe in 2:59 of the seventh-place match at 138.

Auburndale and Stratford return to action with Marawood Conference matches Jan. 4. Auburndale is at Marathon and Stratford is at Athens.

Marshfield hosts Merrill in a Wisconsin Valley Conference dual Jan. 5, while Spencer/Columbus is off until Jan. 9 when it takes on Wautoma at Columbus Catholic High School.

WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Marshfield won four matches by pin and pulled out two one-point victories to beat Wisconsin Rapids 48-19 in a Wisconsin Valley Conference wrestling dual meet Thursday night at Lincoln High School.

Sam Mitchell earned a pin with 10 seconds left in the first period to win at 195 pounds, and Caden Dennee (126), Caden Pearce (145), and Bentley Schwanebeck-Ostermann (170) also had pins for the Tigers, who improve to 2-0 in the Valley this season.

Nolan Hertel (152) and Isaac Slark (182) each won 5-4, Gabe Pugh (113) earned an 11-5 win, Tanner Kanable (132) won 5-1, and Alex Brost (220) and Conner Berry (285) won by forfeit for the Tigers.

“We had some big wins for the team and I am really proud of how we competed,” Marshfield coach Jackson Hein said. “Rapids has a strong tradition and always prepares well for the dual. Nolan Hertel started off the dual with a huge win against a familiar opponent (Bergh Diebel). Nolan has put in a lot of time in the off season and won the match tonight because he was on his offense during the match. Hard work during the offseason pays off.

“Another exciting win was at 182 when Isaac Slark won a tight 5-4 match. Isaac is a sponge when it comes to learning wrestling moves and positions. Every day he works incredibly hard and is always focused. This was his first varsity match and it was awesome to see him get his hand raised at the end.”

Marshfield will compete at the Bi-State Classic in La Crosse on Dec. 29-30.
