MARSHFIELD – After surrendering a 10-point lead, the Marshfield Columbus Catholic girls basketball team could have easily went away at the end of its Cloverbelt Conference East Division game against Loyal on Monday night.

Instead, the Dons responded.

Columbus ended the game on a 19-3 run, including 8-0 during the final 2:23, to blow past the Greyhounds 51-41 on Senior Night at Columbus Catholic High School.

The win ends a five-game losing streak for the Dons (6-13, 5-11 Cloverbelt East), who will play in a Cloverbelt Crossover game against a team yet to be determined on Friday. Loyal falls to 7-12 and ends the Cloverbelt East season at 4-12.

“I thought our defense wore them out,” Columbus coach Darin Green said. “I thought if we kept pushing the ball, and we didn’t do a really good job of it, that we would be able to run them down a little bit and get them tired and get some easy buckets off of it.

The win was especially important for Columbus Catholic, which plays at Loyal in a WIAA Division 5 regional quarterfinal on March 8.

“It makes you feel a little bit better of what you can and can’t do with them,” Green said. “It should be a fun one next Tuesday.”

Columbus closed the first quarter on a 13-0 run to take an 18-8 lead. Elizabeth Manlick had a pair of three-point plays and another hoop over the final 1:03 to push the Dons’ lead to 10.

Loyal cut its deficit to five at 26-21 by halftime, then surged ahead in the third quarter behind the outside shooting of Kahri Rueth.

Rueth scored 11 straight points – two free throws and three 3-pointers in a row – to erase the Dons’ 32-27 lead and turn it into a 38-32 advantage for Loyal.

As suddenly as the Greyhounds, and more specifically Rueth, got hot, they turned cold.

Kayla Selz and Manlick added baskets in the final 21 seconds of the third quarter, and after Rueth hit a free throw with 7:07 to go in the fourth, the Dons scored seven straight points to pull ahead for good.

Selz banked in a 3-pointer to start the run and help Columbus open up a 43-39 lead.

Kelsey Happe ended the run for Loyal, but Loyal turned the ball over on its next four possessions and Columbus closed the game with an 8-0 run.

“When we got a little bit of a lead, they were really trying to do some things and we were able to play some solid defense and keep (Kahri Rueth) from knocking 800 3s on us,” Green said. “We were able to bring the ball up and find some layups. We can play like that if they keep their heads up, keep composure and don’t get frustrated.”

Manlick ended the game with 16 points and Weister added 13 for the Dons. Rueth finished with 21 points for Loyal.

Dons 51, Greyhounds 41
Loyal 8 13 17 3 – 41
Columbus 18 8 10 15 – 51
LOYAL (41):
Megan Roedel 0-0 0-0 0, Jordyn Pieper 1-5 0-0 3, Kahri Rueth 7-13 3-4 21, Karissa Rueth 2-4 1-2 5, Jennah Fulwiler 2-3 0-0 4, Kelsey Happe 1-4 2-2 4, Sarah Weyer 0-5 0-0 0, Caitlyn Weinfurtner 1-5 2-2 4.

The WIAA announced the playoff brackets Sunday for the girls basketball tournament, which begins March 8.

This year, the WIAA has introduced a five-bracket system for the basketball playoffs. The biggest difference is in the Division 1 bracket, where some teams will now have to play five games to qualify for the state tournament.

Instead of the normal two games in regionals and two games in sectionals, the Division 1 bracket will include a “Super Tuesday” game pitting sectional winners.

In all five divisions, four teams will advance to the WIAA State Boys Basketball Tournament on March 24-26 at the Kohl Center in Madison.

Locally, Marshfield (18-3) is the No. 1 seed in its Division 1 regional. If the Tigers keep winning, they will host three straight playoff games before a potential Super Tuesday match at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point on March 22.

Marshfield will host the winner of the Hudson-D.C. Everest game in a regional final on Saturday, March 12. A game time has not been announced. Marshfield hosts the sectional semifinals on March 17 and the sectional final on March 19. If it wins the regional final, the Tigers will play the winner of the Eau Claire Memorial-Superior game on March 17 at 6 p.m.

In Division 4, Auburndale (18-3) is the No. 2 seed in its regional and received a first-round bye. The Apaches will host the winner of the Stevens Point Pacelli-Wild Rose game on Friday, March 11, at 7 p.m. The winner of that game moves on to a regional final on March 12 at Wisconsin Rapids.

Stratford is in the top half of the sectional bracket and is a No. 4 seed. The Tigers (9-12) host No. 5 Three Lakes (10-11) on Tuesday, March 8, at 7 p.m. The winner plays at No. 1 seed Marathon (14-6) on March 11.

The regional final is at Antigo on March 12, with the sectional semifinals at Wausau East on March 17 and the sectional final at Waupaca on March 19.

In Division 5, Spencer (17-3) is the No. 2 seed in its regional and also earned a first-round bye. The Rockets will host the winner of the Greenwood-Rib Lake game in a regional semifinal on March 11 at 7 p.m.

In the same regional, Marshfield Columbus Catholic (5-13) is the No. 5 seed and will play a regional quarterfinal at No. 4 Loyal (7-12) on Tuesday, March 8. The Dons host Loyal in their Cloverbelt Conference East Division finale on Monday. The winner of the regional quarterfinal plays at No. 1 seed Prentice in a regional semifinal on March 11.

The regional final is at Marathon, with the sectional semifinal at Abbotsford on March 17 and the sectional final at Spooner on March 19.

MADISON – Stratford senior Luke Radke didn’t end his career quite as he would have hoped, but it wasn’t all bad either.

Radke was pinned by Weyauwega-Fremont’s Casey Haase in 3:53, losing his bid at the Division 3 189-pound title Saturday night at the WIAA State Individual Wrestling Tournament at the Kohl Center.

Haase beat Radke 7-3 at last week’s sectional final and hoped things would turn out differently Saturday. However, Haase took control early with a takedown and a nearfall in the first period, building a 4-0 lead.

Haase led 7-0 before securing the pin with 7 seconds left in the second period.

“I went out there kind of out of control and just got caught,” Radke said. “That’s about it. I made it to the biggest stage I could, it’s something to be proud of.”

Stratford co-coach Joe Schwabe said they had a different game-plan, but Haase was just too good in this match.

“Haase is a tough, big kid,” Schwabe said. “He’s just a little bit bigger than us, a little bit stronger than us. Last week we tried to stay away from him and his double legs got us twice. This week we thought we’d go after him, let’s lock and load and see what happens. At least we went out flying and trying. He’s tough.

Stratford’s other wrestler at the state meet, Mark Marquardt, ended up setting for fourth place at 152 pounds. He was making his second state trip three years after qualifying as a freshman and taking sixth place.

On Saturday, the Stratford senior beat Cadyn McKeeth of Arcadia 9-5 in a consolation bracket match before losing to Mike Mergener of Coleman (41-6) 3-1 in overtime of the third-place match to finish the season with a 33-9 record.

Schwabe said he couldn’t be more proud of his two seniors.

“They both ended their careers with a loss, but for Luke’s first trip to Madison and to get in the state finals … once things settle down, he’s got to be pretty happy with himself,” Schwabe said. “Marquardt’s been battling some shoulder injuries all year and for him to get back down and medal – and 152 was a loaded bracket – so for him to take fourth, he feels good about himself.

“Both guys had nine matches between the two of them. We had a wonderful fan showing, about 150 people, and they got to see a lot of Stratford matches for two kids.”

Marshfield’s Brad Dolezal closes out career on top again, winning third WIAA state wrestling title

MADISON – Marshfield High School wrestler Brad Dolezal capped off the greatest career in the history of the school’s program with his third state title on Saturday at the WIAA State Individual Wrestling Tournament at the Kohl Center.

Dolezal beat Ryan Bonikowske of Neenah in the 160-pound Division 1 championship match in dominating fashion, 7-0, to repeat as state champion and capture his third title overall in his four-year career.

“Going in freshman year I was just hoping to make varsity,” Dolezal said. “I made the spot, the season started going well and getting better and better. Then it developed from there to being a state qualifier and found myself in the finals. I would have never thought this would happen – not at all.”

Dolezal’s teammate Torin Boernke settled for second place for the second season in a row.

Boernke lost to Menasha’s Thomas Allen 8-4 in the 135-pound championship match to end his season with a 44-3 record. It was Boernke’s fourth top-three medal at the state tournament as he took third place as a freshman and won the 112-pound championship as a sophomore.

“He was a really good opponent and capitalized on some of the mistakes I made,” Boernke said. “I had opportunities to score once, twice, maybe a few other times, but he was good on his feet, he was good at countering. He was a good wrestler, just better than me today, I guess.”

Dolezal, who will wrestle collegiately at the University of Minnesota starting in the fall, finishes as Marshfield’s all-time leader in wins with 172 (with only seven losses), shattering the old mark of 144 set by Ross Needham from 1999-2002. He won his final 95 matches and became the first four-time finalist and three-time state champion at Marshfield.

“There’s a lot of plaques up in our room (at the high school) with takedowns, most wins in a season and a career and I think definitely, when I get back, I’ll be looking at that,” Dolezal said. “I set a goal of trying to get on some of those plaques up there and I accomplished that. It’s nice to see my name up there.”

Boernke narrowly missed grabbing control on at least two occasions in the first period, but did take a 1-0 in the second on an escape. Allen quickly turned the tables as he had a takedown and a two-point nearfall with 50 seconds to go to take a 4-1 lead.

Allen eventually took a 6-4 lead into the final seconds when Boernke went for one final move to tie the match with a takedown, but Allen retaliated and instead gained control of Boernke for another two points just before the buzzer.

The loss puts a damper on Boernke’s season, but not on his career, where he finishes second on Marshfield’s all-time wins list behind Dolezal with 155 victories.

“I’m happy with how I did all the years,” Boernke said. “I put in all that hard work and I think that I got out what I put in, which makes me happy and that it was all worthwhile. I definitely feel it was. I will always look back with fond memories and be happy with what I did.”

Marshfield coach Don Lang said the two seniors walking away with eight top-three medals and four state championships between them during their careers is something the program may never see again.

“Do they have to leave? I can’t have them back?” Lang joked. “To match what they have done during these four years is pretty tough to do. There’s not many guys out there that can say they have accomplished what Brad and Torin have accomplished.

“Torin really wanted that state title this year, but it didn’t work out for him. He has to hold his head high, he’s head one heck of a career. Both of them have been a joy to coach, they have been so coachable, so humble. You can’t ask for two better individuals on the mat, in the classroom and just in life in general.”
