MADISON – All six local wrestlers competing in the consolation round Saturday won their first matches at the 2017 WIAA State Individual Wrestling Tournament at the Kohl Center.

Two ended up winning their third-place matches, while the other four had to settle for fourth-place medals.

In Division 2, Spencer/Columbus sophomore Logan Zschernitz beat Neillsville/Greenwood/Loyal’s Nick Rueth in the 285-pound consolation semifinals, holding on for a 3-2 victory. Zschernitz went on to defeat Josh Frerk of Denmark by major decision, 14-5, in the third-place match.

Zschernitz beat Rueth for the fourth-straight weekend after defeating him at the Cloverbelt Conference Tournament, as well as at the Division 2 regional and sectional competition. Zschernitz had defeated Frerk in the quarterfinals on Friday and ends his season with a 39-4 record.

“For Logan, last night was tough, it was a tough night in the hotel,” SC coach Jake Zschernitz said. “We talked, we got his emotions in check, and we had to re-assess our goals. Our goal was a state championship for him, we didn’t get it, OK, now our goal is third place. He came into today, took care of business, and got that done.”

Stratford’s Derek Marten (126 pounds), Jake Drexler (132), David Marquardt (160), Aiden Hoffman (195), and Tyson Kauffman (285) each won their Division 3 consolation semifinals, with Drexler ending up winning his third-place match as well.

Drexler (42-3) pinned Kolbe Ubersox of Darlington/Black Hawk in 1:59 in the semifinals and needed overtime to defeat Seth Schlegel of Spring Valley/Elmwood 3-1 in the third-place match. Drexler had lost to Schlegel 8-5 in the quarterfinals on Friday.

Marten (38-5) beat Dylan Bune of Spring Valley/Elmwood 5-0 in the semifinals and lost his third-place match to Andrew Gunderson of Cadott 4-2.

Marquardt (37-5), pinned James LaPointe of Bayfield/Washburn in 1:58 before dropping the third-place match to Michael Bertrand of Southern Door, 4-1.

Hoffman (37-11) took care of Noah Friedl of Royall 7-3 in the semifinals and lost the third-place match to Bryce Holderman of Amherst 10-3.

At 285 pounds, defending D-3 state champion Tyson Kauffman (15-6) settled for fourth. Kauffman blanked Noah Novotney of Boyceville 3-0 in the semifinals before forfeiting the third-place match to Takoda Lee of Cornell/Gilman/Lake Holcombe because of ongoing shoulder and arm injuries.

Spencer/Columbus junior Hunter Luepke and Stratford’s Manny Drexler, A.J. Schoenfuss, Jeremy Schoenherr, Mason Kauffman, and Kamren Bornbach will wrestle in state championship matches Saturday night. The Parade of Champions begins at 5 p.m., with wrestling to follow in three divisions.

MADISON – Marshfield sophomores Nolan Hertel and Sam Mitchell were eliminated from the 2017 WIAA State Individual Wrestling Tournament after losing Division 1 consolation bracket matches Friday morning at the Kohl Center.

Hertel (32-11) lost 3-1 to Waterford senior Austin Thomas (22-6) at 145 pounds, while Mitchell (25-16) was pinned by Kaukauna sophomore Bryson Alsteen (42-8) at 170 pounds.

For Hertel, it marks the second straight season he qualified for the state meet, while Mitchell was making his debut at the tournament.

Hertel used an escape midway through the third period to close to within 3-1 and was close to earning a takedown in the final seconds but Thomas was able to hold him off.

Alsteen used a takedown and a nearfall early in the first period to take a quick 4-0 lead, and had takedowns in the second and third periods to go up 8-0 before pinning Mitchell with 56 seconds to go.

Wrestling will continue Friday with Division 2 and 3 quarterfinals starting at approximately 11:15 a.m. Consolation matches follow for Division 1 at 1:45 p.m. and Divisions 2 and 3 at 2:45 p.m., with semifinals in all three divisions at 7 p.m.

MADISON – Marshfield High School’s two wrestlers at the 2017 WIAA State Individual Wrestling Tournament lost their Division 1 preliminary round matches on Thursday afternoon at the Kohl Center.

Sophomore Nolan Hertel dropped an 8-5 decision to Joshua Otto of Hartland Arrowhead at 145 pounds, and fellow sophomore Sam Mitchell was pinned by Connor Williams of La Crosse Central in 2:07 at 170 pounds.

Hertel (32-10) and Mitchell (25-15) will move into the Division 1 consolation brackets Friday morning.

Hertel will face Austin Thomas (21-6) of Waterford, and Mitchell will take on Bryson Alsteen (41-8) of Kaukauna in consolation matches. A win places them in the second round of the consolation bracket later Friday afternoon, a loss means elimination.

Hertel never gained control of Otto during the match. Otto earned four takedowns on each of the four occasions the wrestlers were in the neutral position. Hertel had four escapes, and earned another point for a stalling infraction in the final seconds of the match.

Williams led 6-2 after one period of the 170-pound match against Mitchell. Mitchell started the second period in the down position and Williams quickly secured a reverse and pinned the Marshfield sophomore 7 seconds into the period.

A total of 16 local wrestlers will hit the mats this week at the 2017 WIAA State Individual Wrestling Tournament at the Kohl Center in Madison.

Wrestling begins with preliminary matches in all three divisions, and Division 1 quarterfinals on Thursday. Division 2 and 3 quarterfinals, consolation matches and semifinals in all three divisions are set for Friday. The finals are scheduled for Saturday at 5 p.m.

A pair of sophomores qualified for Marshfield and will face tough opponents in the Division 1 prelims on Thursday afternoon.

Nolan Hertel is making a return trip to Madison after going 0-2 last year as a freshman. Hertel (32-9) will face Joshua Otto (35-4) of Hartland Arrowhead in a first-round match at 145 pounds.

Sam Mitchell (25-14) will face Connor Williams (44-1) of La Crosse Central in a 170-pound match for the Tigers.

“At this point in the season, it’s about doing all the little things right,” Marshfield coach Jackson Hein said. “It comes down to making the time worth it and believing in our training. Attitude is everything.”

In Division 2, Spencer/Columbus Catholic has three wrestlers that will compete at the state meet, including three-time qualifier Hunter Luepke.

Luepke, a junior, did not place as a freshman, before earning a fifth-place medal at 182 pounds last year. As a sectional champion, Luepke (36-2) earned a first-round bye and will take on the winner of Hayden Arneson (31-6) of Monroe and Matt Buechel (30-7) of New Holstein in a 195-pound quarterfinal early Friday afternoon.

Making their first state appearances will be sophomore Logan Zschernitz at 285 pounds and freshman Ashton Ackman on 106.

Zschernitz (37-3), also a sectional champ, will face the winner of Josh Frerk (34-4) of Denmark and Tennesse Hatfield (29-14) of River Valley in a 285-pound quarterfinal Friday afternoon.

“Hunter and Logan are both wrestling on another level right now,” SC coach Jake Zschernitz said. “Hunter has been dominate all year long, but he is continuing to get better every match. The same for Logan. He’s the most athletic 285 I’ve seen and improves daily as the season has progressed. They both push each other in practice and have the same goal in mind – they expect to be state champions.”

Ackman (35-7) will face Quintin Gehrmann (33-5) of Jefferson in a 106-pound prelim late Thursday afternoon.

“All three wrestlers are really peaking at the right time,” Jake Zschernitz said. “Ashton has a little bit tougher road coming into state as a (second-place finisher). He’s been doing a very good job staying on the offense and scoring points. At sectionals, he tech-falled three of his opponents. We think he can continue that production going forward.”

For the second year in a row, Stratford will have 11 of its 14 wrestlers in the Division 3 state field.

Among those are four returning D-3 state champions. Senior Kamren Bornbach (220 pounds) and juniors A.J. Schoenfuss (120) and Jeremy Schoenherr (138) are shooting for their third-straight state titles. Senior Tyson Kauffman (285) is back to defend his title won last year.

Junior Mason Kauffman, a champion two years ago, was forced to medical forfeit the 152-pound championship last year after suffering a heart ailment that was diagnosed after a semifinal victory. Because it was a medical forfeit, it did not count as a loss on his career record and he will take a perfect 128-0 mark (29-0) this year, into a 152-pound quarterfinal on Friday.

Jake Drexler (132), Derek Marten (126), and David Marquardt (160) are also back at state for the Tigers. Drexler took fifth at 113 and Marquardt was sixth at 145, earning medals last year.

Manny Drexler (106), Kade Ehrike (170) and Aiden Hoffman (195) will be making their first state appearances.

Ehrike, Hoffman and Tyson Kauffman will wrestle in preliminary matches Thursday. The other eight are sectional champions and earned byes into the quarterfinals on Friday afternoon.

“Getting 11 kids to qualify for state again this year is very exciting,” Stratford coach Joe Schwabe said. “We lost a couple kids at regionals, so I didn’t know if this was going to happen. However, the kids wrestled very physical and aggressive all day and won some key matches early to advance 10 into the finals, with another coming ‘back door’. This group kind of feeds off of each other. They are definitely believing in the ‘team’ philosophy and pick each other up and keep each other motivated.

“This is a very positive group that is wrestling with a lot of confidence right now. I want them all to believe they can win, wrestle to win, and then go win!”

RIVER FALLS – Two Marshfield sophomores qualified for the next week’s WIAA State Individual Wrestling Tournament after earning second-place finishes at the WIAA Division 1 sectional on Saturday at River Falls High School.

The Tigers had 13 of their 14 individuals qualify for the sectional, but only two made it through the brackets to move on to the state meet, which will be Feb. 23-25 at the Kohl Center in Madison. The top two finishers at each weight class at the sectional move on to the state meet.

Nolan Hertel will be making heading back to state for the second year in a row after coming through a wrestleback scenario to earn second place at 145 pounds.

Hertel (32-9) beat Nathan Fuller of River Falls by major decision, 11-1, in the third-place match, then knocked off Wisconsin Rapids’ Bergh Diebel 7-5 in a second-place wrestleback to earn a spot in Madison. Hertel did not place at last season’s state meet at 138 pounds. Hertel had lost to Diebel three times this season.

“It felt good to beat a kid who I felt I was supposed to beat (referring to beating Diebel),” Hertel said. “Last year qualifying for state was a great learning experience and this year I can focus on winning matches instead of just being there.”

Joining Hertel at the state meet will be Sam Mitchell (25-14), who won by technical fall and major decision before dropping the 170-pound championship match to Nathan White of D.C. Everest 14-3.

“It feels great to be peaking at the right time,” Mitchell said. “All of the offseason training that I have done is starting to pay off. I am looking forward to wrestling in the state tournament and winning some matches.”

Marshfield senior Anthony Kanable suffered a heart-breaking end to his Tigers career. He lost the 138-pound championship match to Bryce Younger of New Richmond 4-2 and dropped a second-place wrestleback to Sam Skillings of Menomonie 9-6 to finish his season with a 31-6 record.

Alex Brost (182) and Sam Bauman (220) each finished fourth for Marshfield.

Shane Westerhausen (106), Caden Dennee (113), Tanner Kanable (120), Caden Pearce (132), Payton Young (152), Conner Peterson (195), and A.J. Leonhardt (285) each lost their first match at the sectional.

“I am extremely proud of all of the Tiger wrestlers today,” Marshfield coach Jackson Hein said. “The sectional wrestling tournament is always a rollercoaster day. Although we only got two wrestlers to state, all of our guys battled and that is all a coach can ask for. Nolan Hertel and Sam Mitchell are guys that put a ton of time in during the off-season and it showed today.”

Hertel will face Joshua Otto (35-4) of Hartland Arrowhead and Mitchell will take on Connor Williams (44-1) of La Crosse Central in Division 1 preliminary matches late Thursday afternoon at the Kohl Center.

Marshfield wrestling team’s bid for state tournament berth falls short against Hudson

STEVENS POINT – The Marshfield wrestling team’s quest for a spot in the state team tournament came up just short as Hudson used five pins to top the Tigers 36-33 in a WIAA Division 1 sectional on Tuesday night at Stevens Point Area Senior High.

Marshfield, looking for its first berth in the state team tournament since 2003, had four pins of its own, but the fifth by Hudson proved to be the difference.

Hudson will face three-time defending champion Kaukauna in a Division 1 quarterfinal at the 2017 WIAA State Team Wrestling Tournament at the University of Wisconsin Fieldhouse in Madison on March 3. The semifinals will follow and the championship match will be held March 4.

“Some of our guys got out of position,” Marshfield coach Jackson Hein said. “Hudson was here for a reason and has really good wrestlers, so do we. I just thought our wrestlers that got pinned, I know they are better than that. We weren’t controlling what we need to control and were too worried about what (the opponent) was doing.”

Nolan Hertel got Marshfield off to a terrific start, pinning Brandon Rothmeier just 23 seconds into the 145-pound match to give the Tigers the early lead.

After two Hudson wins, Marshfield won three-straight matches to regain control.

Alex Brost (170) and Sam Mitchell (182) won by decision, and Conner Peterson pinned Sam Kelcher in 1:08 of the 195-pound match to put Marshfield up 18-9.

The Tigers then ran into a tough stretch.

Sam Bauman (220), A.J. Leonhardt (285), and Shane Westerhausen (106) each lost by pin as Hudson grabbed a 27-18 lead and never trailed again.

Caden Dennee had a pin at 113 for the Tigers before Hudson put the match away with two more victories.

Caden Pearce won 10-9 at 132 and Anthony Kanable had a first-period pin at 138 as the Tigers won the final two matches, but came up three points short.

Marshfield has 13 wrestlers moving on to the Division 1 individual sectional at River Falls on Saturday. A top-two finish there secures a spot in next week’s WIAA State Individual Wrestling Tournament in Madison.

Hein said the team sectional loss should show the Tigers what needs to be done on Saturday.

“I hope it’s a wake-up call to be honest,” Hein said. “When you’re at team sectionals, you’re anticipating to wrestle a good team. Hudson is a good team. I think we didn’t compete the way could have. They wrestled their style and we didn’t, we kind of wrestled their style.

“All year, the matches that we won, it’s because we were on the attack and on the offense. I didn’t see us winning the scrambles, getting the pins and bonus points. Our guys were giving up the pins, and it’s not like they didn’t fight, but as a team I hope it’s a wake-up call. Our technique, I know is there. They were making mistakes that if they continue to make, their season will be done this weekend.”

MERRILL – The Marshfield wrestling team is in position to go to the state team wrestling tournament for the first time since 2003 after it won the WIAA Division 1 regional on Saturday at Merrill High School.

The Tigers had 13 of their 14 wrestlers finish in the top four at their respective weight classes to qualify for the individual sectional at River Falls next Saturday, Feb. 18.

Marshfield will compete at the Division 1 team sectional against Hudson on Tuesday at Stevens Point Area Senior High. The winner qualifies for the 2017 WIAA State Team Wrestling Tournament on March 3-4 at the University of Wisconsin Fieldhouse in Madison.

The top two finishers in each weight class at the individual sectional move on to the 2017 WIAA State Individual Wrestling Tournament at the Kohl Center in Madison on Feb. 23-25.

Marshfield tallied 219 points, easily distancing itself from second-place Rhinelander (166) and Stevens Point (155.5).

Senior Anthony Kanable was the only regional champion for the Tigers as he beat Dylan Trigg of Stevens Point 9-1 to capture the 138-pound title. This is Kanable’s second regional title.

“Anthony is wrestling the best I have ever seen him wrestle,” Marshfield coach Jackson Hein said. “He knows that this is his last shot at getting to state, and as a coach, it’s fun to sit in a kid’s corner who wrestles with a chip on his shoulder and makes things happen.”

Despite just the one champ, the overall team performance from the Tigers was overwhelming on their opponents.

Payton Young (152 pounds), Bentley Schwanebeck-Ostermann (160), Sam Mitchell (170), and Sam Bauman (220) all placed second for Marshfield. Tanner Kanable (120), Caden Pearce (132), Nolan Hertel (145), Alex Brost (182), and Conner Peterson (195) each finished third. Shane Westerhausen (106), Caden Dennee (113), and A.J. Leonhardt (285) also qualified for sectionals by placing fourth.

“We will never have a perfect tournament as a team, but we always want to make sure that we are getting better each week and put forth our perfect effort,” Hein said. “This is the best time of the year for wrestling. It’s a tough environment – we are surrounded by competitors who all want to prove who they are. We need to step up as a team and as individuals if we want to make a statement throughout the whole state, which I know we are capable of doing.”

STEVENS POINT – Twelve of Marshfield’s lineup of 14 wrestlers placed in the top three and two won titles to lift the Tigers to the championship at the Wisconsin Valley Conference Wrestling Tournament on Saturday at Stevens Point Area Senior High.

Combined with its perfect 6-0 record during the dual meet season, Marshfield captured its first overall WVC championship since 1958.

Marshfield finished the tournament with 225.5 points, more than 50 ahead of second-place Wausau West (171). West also ended up second in the overall team standings, with D.C. Everest third.

Senior Anthony Kanable and sophomore Bentley Schwanebeck-Ostermann each won their second career WVC individual titles for the Tigers.

Kanable beat Dylan Trigg of Stevens Point 7-1 to take the 138-pound title, and Schwanebeck-Ostermann won a major decision over Max Benitz of Wisconsin Rapids 14-2 at 160. Kanable won the 126-pound championship in 2014 and Ostermann was the 145-pound champ last year.

Seven other Tigers finished second, losing in the championship round of the seven-team tournament.

Tanner Kanable (120), Caden Pearce (132), Nolan Hertel (145), Sam Mitchell (170), Alex Brost (182), Conner Peterson (195), and Sam Bauman (220) were all runner-ups for Marshfield.

Shane Westerhausen (106), Caden Dennee (113) and Brayden Richardson (126) each finished third for the Tigers.

“As a program, I am extremely proud of hard far we have come this season,” third-year Marshfield coach Jackson Hein said. “Anthony Kanable and Bentley Schwanabeck-Ostermann both earned their second conference title in their respected weight classes. They both wrestled tough today and it was good to see them get the title.

“Having nine wrestlers get to the finals and come out with two champs shows how close we are to really dominating the tournament. We had some heartbreak losses today as well, but I know that our wrestlers will respond in the right way next week at regionals. The best part about today was that every Marshfield wrestler won matches and battled for their teammates, family, high school and the Marshfield community. Anytime we can walk away from a tournament knowing that our hard work paid off and our team made history, that’s a special feeling.”

The WIAA Division 1 individual regional is Feb. 11 at Merrill High School.

MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield wrestling team finished its regular-season dual meet schedule with a resounding 59-10 win over Eau Claire North in a nonconference match Thursday at Marshfield High School.

Marshfield won 11 of the 14 matches, eight by pin, in the dominating victory.

Tanner Kanable (120 pounds), Brayden Richardson (126), Nolan Hertel (145), Payton Young (152), Bentley Ostermann (160), Sam Mitchell (170), Alex Brost (182), and Conner Peterson (195) each won by pin for Marshfield. All but Hertel’s and Brost’s pins came in the first period.

Sam Bauman (220) and Anthony Kanable (138) each won by decision as well for the Tigers, and Caden Pearce (132) won by technical fall. Bauman beat Antonio Putnick 7-2, two weeks after losing to him at the Sparta Tournament.

Marshfield will compete at the Wisconsin Valley Conference Tournament on Saturday at Stevens Point Area Senior High. With a first- or second-place finish, the Tigers would win their first WVC championship since 1958.

“I am happy we were able to add it to our schedule,” Marshfield coach Jackson Hein said. “it was one last opportunity for our three seniors (Anthony Kanable, Peterson, and Bauman) to wrestle in front of their home crowd.

“It was a huge win for (Bauman). He works incredibly hard and for him to beat a guy tonight, who he lost to only two weeks ago, shows himself and his teammates that anything is possible. We look to carry this momentum into the conference tournament.”

MERRILL – For the third year in a row, the Marshfield Middle School wrestling team won the Central Wisconsin Conference championship.

Marshfield racked up 201.5 points at the 23-team tournament at Merrill High School on Friday. Stevens Point was second with 174 and Stratford took third with 159.5 points.

The Central Wisconsin Conference combines 23 teams from the four different area conferences.

Vaughn Kolbeck, Marcus Solt, C.J. Dennee, Jaiger Halvorson and Lukas Barth took first place in the mini-tournament, which does not count toward the team points total, while Keagan Cliver and Kavin Barenek were champions in the big tournament for Marshfield.

Cliver beat Isaac Bixby of Rhinelander 11-5 to win the 84-pound championship for Marshfield and finish the season with a 25-4 record.

Beranek (20-4) won the 210-pound title by pinning James Kluck of Stevens Point in 43 seconds in the championship match.

“Merrill is a tough tournament every year with several talented area teams competing and this year it took a complete team effort to bring home our third consecutive conference championship,” Marshfield coach Jacob Rebhan said. “While we only had two champions out of the 17 weight classes, we
placed 12 out of our 14 wrestlers as our kids battled in every match. To not only win, but to win three conference championships in a row, is a phenomenal achievement and I can’t stress enough what an excellent job my assistant coaches have done as they put in a lot of time and effort to help our kids achieve their goals. Coach Sternweis, Tews, and Wozniak have gone above and beyond everything that I have asked them to do and their work has led to the success that we have had as a program.”

Second-place finishers for Marshfield included Kolton Carlson, Brett Franklin, Cody Weix, Alex Westlund, Ryken Kolbeck, Mason Peckham, Will Vanderwyst, Gabe Pugh and Garrett Willuweit.

Taking third for the Tigers were Trey Montalvo, Logan Mueller, Dane Tollefson, Westin Happe, Phil Bakke, Hoyt Blaskowski and Ryan Dolezal.

“At the middle school level we focus on doing things the right way and our four core values of integrity, resiliency, accountability, and respect are the building blocks on which our team is built,” Rebhan said. “Our kids have given great effort, improved every day, and stayed positive all season long.

“We have a chain that we bring to each practice and competition to remind us of the strong bonds that our group has, and our kids have really bought into this concept as they go out and compete for one another in each match. Our goal when we are wrestling is to put on a show and we wrestle with
an attacking, physical style while scoring a lot of points.”
