Fuerlinger capped off his athletic career for the Dons by earning first-team all-Cloverbelt East honors in baseball as he hit .390 and was 15-for-15 on stolen base attempts as Columbus went 5-13.

WISCONSIN DELLS – Numerous players from the area took part in the annual Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association State All-Star games on June 16-17 at JustAgame Fieldhouse.

The games, which pitted graduated seniors from North and South teams in five different divisions, were played over two days. The girls games were June 16, with the five boys games on June 17.

Marshfield’s Ema Fehrenbach, a Viterbo University recruit, was on the Division 1 North girls teams. She played just one minute in a 83-55 victory, going 0-for-1 shooting, after suffering a broken ankle during the week leading up to the game.

In Division 4, Stratford had a pair of players on the North squad. Andie Zuelke started and played 19 minutes, scoring one point on 1-for-2 free throws and had six rebounds. Her Tigers’ teammate, Sammy Griesbach, came off the bench and played 15 minutes, finishing with four points and one assist in a 86-62 loss to the South team.

Marathon’s Amanda Kind and Neillsville’s Kayla Lis also played for the Division 4 North team. Kind did not score and grabbed three rebounds, and Lis had six points and three rebounds.

In Division 5, WIAA state champion Loyal had its two senior all-state players on the North squad.

Morgan Reinwand had a team-high 16 points on 6-for-10 shooting and had six rebounds, and Karsyn Rueth had 11 points and eight rebounds for the North in a 78-69 loss.

On the boys side, Auburndale’s Caleb Weinfurter and Edgar’s Alec Hafferman played for the Division 4 North team.

Weinfurter was 3 of 5 from 3-point range and scored 11 points, and Hafferman had four points and nine rebounds as the North lost to the South 83-73.

In Division 5, Marshfield Columbus Catholic’s Tyler Fuerlinger started and played 23 minutes for the Norht team in a 102-96 loss. Fuerlinger, the Cloverbelt Conference East Division Player of the Year, scored 14 points and had five rebounds in the defeat.

Loyal’s Cameron Brussow also played for the Division 5 North boys team, scoring seven points.

Columbus Catholic’s Hunter Schultz was originally selected to play in the Division 5 game, but he did not participate.

Shot clock coming to Wisconsin high school basketball

STEVENS POINT – The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) Board of Control voted at its meeting on June 22 to implement a 35-second shot clock for varsity high school basketball games beginning in the 2019-20 season.

Wisconsin will become the ninth state to have a shot clock for high school basketball.

While the reaction has been mixed from fans on social media, Marshfield High School girls basketball coach Heidi Michaelis said she was in favor of the change.

“I think it’s good for the game,” said Michaelis, who has a 293-90 record in 16 seasons at the helm. “It doesn’t really change my philosophy, although I have been known to grind out long possessions at the end of the game. It takes that ability away, but I think it keeps the game moving and exciting.

“Most of the time, I like playing faster anyway, so it doesn’t change much. Realistically, turnovers occur anyway during long possessions.”

Marshfield High School Athletic Director Nathan Delany said the process began with a recommendation by the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association to implement the shot clock beginning in the 2018-19 season. The idea first went to the Coaches committee, which voted in favor of it unanimously, then went to a pair of advisory boards that voted against it. The Board of Control has the final say and voted 6-4 for it during last week’s annual June meeting.

The implementation was pushed back a year, to 2019-20, to give member schools more time to find funds for the new equipment and to adequately train staff to run the clock.

The placement of the clocks has yet to be finalized, and Delany said he did not know if it would be required to be in a certain spot at all gyms.

Delany said his early estimate for the cost is approximately $3,500, and he would like to have everything in place by the end of the 2018-19 season so that the Marshfield teams and coaches can have access to it during the summer of 2019.

“Some smaller schools have expressed concerns with the cost and having to have another person trained at the scoring table, which is an ongoing cost,” Delany said. “I think it will both help and hurt the game. It should make for more fluid games and better basketball. I don’t necessarily disagree with some of that. It should bring more flow to games. But some teams, based on talent, have to play a certain way (more deliberate).

“I think there will be more blowouts and eliminate teams that are methodical and want to slow it down. I thought a 45-second clock would have been perfect, allowing teams to work through the clock if that’s the way they play.”

The addition of the shot clock will be the second major change to the game in Wisconsin, as high school games went to 18-minute halves, rather than 8-minute quarters, beginning in the 2015-16 season. That rule change was designed to improve the flow of the game and eliminate teams holding on to the ball for long periods at the end of quarters. The shot clock will no doubt do that as well, changing strategy for a lot of teams.

Marshfield varsity boys basketball coach Scott Scheuer said he doesn’t see it being a problem for the way he coaches, stating that by looking at some tape from last season, the Tigers typically averaged between 24 and 26 seconds to put up a shot.

“That varies from year to year, depending on who is playing, and who you are playing,” said Scheuer, who led the Tigers to a 30-18 combined record the past two seasons, including an appearance in the WIAA Division 1 sectional semifinals last year. “We’ve (coaches) been talking about it for a while. I don’t know if it improves the game. Teams that aren’t as talented are at a disadvantage and I think there will be more lopsided games. The quality coaches will still be quality coaches and will figure it out.”

Other decisions made by the WIAA Board of Control concerning winter sports included: seeding the boys and girls basketball, boys hockey, and team wrestling state tournaments by the participating coaches beginning in the 2017-18 season; and to further discussion on a basketball tournament placement model that would categorize teams into “city”, “suburban”, “town”, and “rural” that could shake up placements in Divisions 3-5; a two-year experiment for having two divisions for the boys hockey playoffs and state tournament beginning in 2020.

SOFTBALL
Conference champion Spencer had seven players selected to the 2017 All-Cloverbelt Conference East Division Softball Team, with four first-team selections.

Seniors Jenna Schober, Katie Fleischman and Cinnamin Harwood, along with sophomore pitcher Tiffany Meinders were first-team picks for Spencer, which won its third-straight Cloverbelt East championship with a perfect 14-0 record.

Schober batted .414 with 21 RBIs, Harwood had a team-high 26 runs scored while batting .455, and Meinders hit .404 with a team-best 32 RBIs and two home runs. Meinders also pitched all but 11 innings for the Rockets this season, compiling a 13-3 record with a 1.81 earned-run average and 99 strikeouts in 81 innings.

Senior Courtney Buss, and juniors Lexi Baehr and Sadie Mercier were second-team selections for the Rockets.

Mercier led the Rockets in batting with a .482 average and scored 25 runs, Baehr had one home run and 17 RBIs, and Buss hit .348 with 19 runs scored and 12 RBIs.

“We had a very good season overall,” Spencer coach Jason Gorst said. “I was really proud of all of our girls. Tiffany was certainly one of the best players in the conference. The combination of her pitching and hitting really was remarkable. Jenna, Cinnamin and Katie all really came through to have big senior seasons. This was the first time we have had four players make first team. Courtney Buss also had another great season to finish out a stellar career, and Sadie and Lexi will be back along with Tiffany to lead a promising team in 2018.”

Marshfield Columbus Catholic’s lone all-conference representative was sophomore Maren Seefluth, who was a second-team choice.

Seefluth hit .471 (16-for-34) with 11 runs scored and eight RBIs.

“I witnessed before the season got underway that Maren Seefluth acted like a very confident player in her ability,” Columbus Catholic coach Arnie Neubauer said. “I was proud of how she carried it onto the field of play for the Dons. I stressed during the season to Maren that she has the next level ability in her arsenal and she performed to that level in conference play. I’m very happy how she executed the new style I was applying to get the best out of her ability.”

Greenwood junior Kaylee Learman was named the conference’s Player of the Year after an impressive campaign in which she was named the Wisconsin Softball Coaches Association Division 5 State Player of the Year.

Learman hit a whopping .727 (48-for-66) with 16 home runs, 53 RBIs and 54 runs scored. In addition to her hit total, she was walked 30 times and had an on-base percentage of .783 and a slugging percentage of 1.742.

“Tyler’s a great young man both on and off the field, and a true leader,” Columbus Catholic coach Joe Seitz said. “Charles has a good curveball and was able to keep hitters off-balance. He always has a smile on his face and never let anything bother him while he was on the mound. Bryce played centerfield and pitched, having never pitched before, but he is an excellent athlete who I knew could handle it. He gives 100 percent effort every day.”

Luepke was the Rockets’ top hitter and also picked up seven of the team’s 11 victories on the mound, helping Spencer reach the WIAA Division 3 sectional semifinals.

LA CROSSE – The local athletes competing at the 2017 WIAA State Track and Field Championships at Memorial Stadium on the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse campus Friday had a mixed bag of results – some shining, some heartbreaking.

Spencer and Auburndale grabbed the first three medals among local competitors, including a gold, while three others running in qualifying events failed to reach the finals in their respective events by the narrowest of margins.

Spencer senior Noah Zastrow earned the fourth medal of his career in the Division 3 boys pole vault, finally taking the gold as he finished first with a vault of 15 feet, 4 inches. Zastrow finished third in his first two years at state in the event, and was the D-3 runner-up a year ago.

Zastrow also moved on to the finals in both of his hurdles events. He was second in qualifying in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 15.59 seconds, finishing only behind Josh Pillath of Coleman (15.05). Zastrow also took seventh in the 300 hurdles, qualifying with a time of 41.65 seconds. The top 10 in all qualifying running events move on to finals on Saturday.

Zastrow will also be competing in the long jump on Saturday.

Noah’s sister, freshman Hannah Zastrow, earned her first state medal as tied for fourth in the D-3 girls high jump. Her leap of 5 feet, 2 inches, tied Rachel Ohde of Chippewa Falls McDonell for fourth place. The top six in each event earn state medals and a spot on the podium.

Hannah Zastrow also competed in two other events Friday. She failed to qualify for the finals in the 100 hurdles, taking 16th and last in qualifying with a time of 17.97 seconds. Hannah, along with teammates Delaney Eichman, Kaily Northup and Johanna Ellefson qualified for the finals in the 400 relay after taking ninth in preliminaries in a time of 1:50.04. Zastrow and Ellefson will compete in the D-3 girls pole vault on Saturday.

Auburndale’s Kali Karl earned the other state medal among local athletes on Friday. She placed fifth in the D-3 girls 800 finals in 2:20.88. The race was won by Hannah Constable of Johnson Creek in 2:15.64.

Spencer’s Logan Zschernitz and Jacob Miller just missed out on state medals, finishing seventh in their respective events. Zschernitz, who will compete in the Division 3 shot put along with teammate Max Johnson on Saturday, was seventh in the discus with a throw of 144 feet, while Miller tied for seventh in the pole vault (12-6).

Another Spencer relay, the girls 800 team of Lauren Faber, Liz Endreas, Eichman and Northup, also moved on to Saturday’s finals after taking ninth in qualifying with a time of 1:50.04.

Auburndale also had a relay team move on to the finals as the Apaches’ girls 1,600 relay of Isabella Jewell, Rachel Gronemeyer, Karl and Isabelle Hilber took third in prelims with a time of 4:08.61.

Hilber and Gronemeyer just missed out on qualifying for the finals after taking 11th in their individual events. Hilber was 11th in the 200 prelims in 27.09, just 0.19 of a second behind the 10th-place finisher. Gronemeyer was 11th in the 400 preliminaries in 1:01.66, missing out on 10th by just more than one-half second.

Also placing 11th in prelims was Spencer’s Aaron Pankratz, who finished the boys 400 in 52.37 seconds, just 3/100th of a second out of 10th.

Cade Lehman, Stratford’s lone state qualifier, finished 10th in the Division 2 boys 3,200 meters in 10:08.14.

Columbus Catholic’s only state qualifier, freshman Jessica Jakopin, placed 17th in the Division 3 girls shot put with a throw of 30 feet, 7¾ inches in her first state meet appearance.

Marshfield’s lone competitor on Friday was junior Skyler Theisen, who took 19th out 24 participants in the Division 1 boys 300-meter hurdles. He ran in a time of 41.08.

Marshfield’s Meg Bryan and Gracie Holland will participate in the Division 1 girls long jump on Saturday, as will the Auburndale girls 3,200 relay team of Taylor Stanton, Vanessa Mitchell, Macie Schmeiser and Karl.

ROSHOLT – The Spencer track team will be well-represented at next week’s WIAA State Track & Field Championships after seven individuals qualified in 12 events, and two girls relays teams moved on with top-four finishes at the WIAA Division 3 sectional Thursday at Rosholt High School.

Senior Noah Zastrow, and his freshman sister Hannah Zastrow, combined for eight berths at the state meet, which will be June 2-3 at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.

Noah Zastrow won the pole vault with a vault of 14 feet, 7 inches, and will return to state in the event for the fourth-straight year. He placed third his freshman and sophomore seasons, before taking second last year at state.

Zastrow also finished third in the 110-meter hurdles (15.67) and the 300 hurdles (41.81), and was fourth in the long jump (20 feet, 5½ inches) to qualify for state in all four of his events.

Hannah Zastrow won the girls high jump (5-3) and the 100 hurdles (16.67), and was second in the pole vault (9-3) behind teammate Johanna Ellefson (11-0), who is the defending Division 3 state champion in the event.

Ellefson also teamed with Delaney Eichman, Kaily Northup and Zastrow to take second in the 400-meter relay, finishing in 51.57 seconds.

The other Spencer girls state qualifier was the 800 girls relay team of Lauren Faber, Liz Endreas, Eichman and Northup (1:50.86).

For the Spencer boys, Max Johnson was second in the shot put (52-3¼), Logan Zschernitz was third in the shot put (49-6) and fourth in the discus (140-1), Jacob Miller took third in the pole vault (12-3), and Aaron Pankratz finished fourth in the 400 (51.96) to also advance to La Crosse.

Marshfield Columbus Catholic has one state meet qualifier as freshman Jessica Jakopin placed third in the girls shot put with a toss of 34-8½.

The Auburndale girls, winner of its first-ever Marawood Conference South Division championship earlier this month, will also be well-represented in La Crosse as three individuals and two relay teams earned top-three finishes at the sectional.

Rachel Gronemeyer will return to the state meet in the 400 after taking second in 1:02.20. Her teammate, Isabella Jewell, just missed out in the event, taking fifth in 1:02.57, less than 1 second behind the fourth-place finisher.

Jewell will still be going to state, however, as she teamed with Gronemeyer, Kali Karl, and Isabelle Hilber to take second in the 1,600 relay in 4:09.61.

Also moving on to state for the Apaches were Hilber in the 200 (third, 27.16), Karl in the 800 (third, 2:23.93), and the 3,200 relay team of Taylor Stanton, Vanessa Mitchell, Macie Schmeiser, and Karl (third, 10:07.23).
