AUBURNDALE – In order for the Stratford wrestling team to sweep both the Marawood Conference dual meet and tournament titles, it would have to defeat five-time tourney champion Edgar.

The Tigers swept through the dual meet season, which included a one-point win over Edgar, but times would not be as easy for them at the Marawood tournament.

Behind eight individual champions, including five in head-to-head finals matches with Stratford, Edgar won the tournament going away, totaling 264 points. Stratford was a distant second with 198 points and didn’t have a single individual champ.

Connor Handrick got the ball rolling for Edgar, winning a major decision at 112 pounds. Brandon Manecke won at 119 and Anthony Lemanksi pinned Stratford’s Tylyn Hoover at 130 in the first of five matches the Wildcats won over the Tigers.

Matt Nowak (135), Jake Frane (140), Luke Nowak (152), Dominique Lehman (160) and Aaron Karlen (215) also won titles for Edgar.

In the other four head-to-head matches between Edgar and Stratford, Frane won by injury default over Evan Bohman, Luke Nowak won a 10-2 decision over Mark Marquardt, Lehman shut out Matt Zuelke 8-0, and Karlen pinned Jake Kauth in 3:58.

Luke Radke also placed second for the Tigers, losing 7-4 in the 185-pound championship match to Phillips’ Peter Polacek.

In addition to the six second-place finishes, Stratford had a third-place finish and four others take fourth.

Cole Kaiser won the 171-pound third-place match, while Andrew Schreiner (103), Alex Heiden (112), Phil Sersch (119) and Andrew Murdaugh (285) lost to finish fourth.

Auburndale had eight medalists, led by Kyle Kundinger, who took third at 125 pounds. Aaron Swenson was fourth at 152, and Trevin Oertel (160) and Lane Schuld (103) each finished fifth. Four Apaches finished sixth.

Stratford and Auburndale will compete at the WIAA Division 3 regional on Feb. 12.

Team scores: 1. Edgar 264; 2. Stratford 198; 3. Athens 183; 4. Phillips and Pittsville 159.5; 6. Marathon 87; 7. Auburndale 60; 8. Chequamegon 59.

MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield girls basketball team has been struggling with finishing off opponents, making free throws and taking care of the ball with the game on the line.

Friday night against Merrill, the Tigers did a better job at all three things and used a dominating second half to pull away from the Bluejays 47-30 in a Wisconsin Valley Conference game at Marshfield High School.

The Tigers trailed 18-17 with 2 minutes left in the first half before Alyssa Brenner drilled a 3-pointer and Taylor Varsho scored off a rebound to put Marshfield up 22-18.

Merrill tied the game at 22-22 on a basket by Renee Sladek one minute into the third quarter before Marshfield systematically pulled away for its seventh-straight victory.

Leah Ripp hit a 3-pointer, Eleni Seitz made two straight hoops and Brenner sank two free throws to put Marshfield up 31-24. The Tigers never led by less than five the rest of the way.

“We went in at halftime and our defense was not up to Coach’s (Heidi Michaelis) standards,” said Brenner, who finished with nine points. “When we went into the locker room and she said we need to play with more intensity, we’re Marshfield and that’s what we do, let’s play defense. We came out in the second half a lot stronger.”

After nearly blowing healthy leads in each of their last two games, the Tigers were able to pull away.

Marshfield was 8-for-8 from the free-throw line in the fourth quarter and made its final 12 attempts of the game as it outscored Merrill 25-10 in the second half.

Varsho finished with 19 points and seven rebounds, Seitz added 12 points and nine rebounds for Marshfield, which improves to 11-2 overall and remains perfect at 6-0 in the Wisconsin Valley.

“I don’t think at halftime we were happy with the effort. We know we could have played harder,” Michaelis said. “Whenever you’re playing against a zone like that and don’t create tempo, it’s hard to pull away. That was our goal, to play a lot harder on the defensive end.”

Tigers 47, Bluejays 30
Merrill 10 10 6 4 – 30
Marshfield 10 12 11 14 – 47
MERRILL (30):
Emma Sowieja 1-1 0-0 2, Ruth Leland 1-1 0-0 3, Liz Smith 0-2 0-0 0, Lindsay Krueger 2-4 0-0 4, Ellen Donner 1-2 0-2 2, Jourdyn Mootz 3-6 2-2 9, Aly Brandvold 2-7 0-0 4, Marissa Bartz 0-2 0-0 0, Renee Sladek 2-5 0-0 4, Andi English 1-7 0-0 2. FG: 13-37. FT: 2-4. 3-pointers: 2-4 (Leland 1-1, Mootz 1-2, Krueger 0-1). Rebounds: 15 (Krueger 4). Turnovers: 13. Total fouls: 14. Fouled out: none. Record: 2-11, 2-4 Wisconsin Valley Conference.
