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.

STRATFORD – The Stratford wrestling team is off to a predictably good start to the season, but now the fun begins.

The Tigers enter this weekend’s Bi-State Classic in La Crosse unbeaten and in search of a fifth-straight Division 3 title at the 60-plus team meet this Friday and Saturday, Dec. 29-30.

Seniors Jeremy Schoenherr and A.J. Schoenfuss, both three-time WIAA individual state champions, lead another strong group of Stratford wrestlers into the epic two-day tournament.

“The wrestlers get quite excited and love to face the challenge of smaller-division schools facing the larger schools in the state,” Stratford coach Joe Schwabe said. “I actually try to put less emphasis on this tournament and would rather gear up for the end of the season, but that is not happening. Our kids really want to go out and perform best and try to place high. They would like to defend their overall championship from last year. It is a nice test for several individuals to see where they are.”

Last season, among the Tigers returning this season, Manny Drexler and Max Schwabe finished second, Schoenfuss took third, Derek Marten was fifth and Aiden Hoffman finished seventh in their respective weight classes at Bi-State.

Stratford has won its first 15 duals, including a 5-0 mark at its home Schoenherr Duals on Dec. 2, a 4-0 record at the Dells Duals on Dec. 9 at Wisconsin Dells, and a 5-0 record at the Stanley-Boyd duals last Friday when the Tigers lost just three matches the entire tournament.

Karter Stuttgen (106 pounds), Drexler (113), Dylan Schoenherr (220), and University of Wisconsin recruit Jeremy Schoenherr (145) all took undefeated records into the Stanley-Boyd tournament. Schwabe (132), Schoenfuss (126) and Hoffman (195) have each only lost once this season for the Tigers, the defending WIAA Division 3 state champion.

Included at the Dells tournament was a dual meet win over Division 1 state runnerup Stoughton.

“With football, deer hunting, and Thanksgiving, all factors in the beginning, we kind of ‘restart, if you will, once they have gone by,” Joe Schwabe said. “After defeating Stoughton, they relaxed and handled three other highly-ranked teams to follow. Many of our kids have had some individual competition that has been great for us all to learn what we need to improve on.”

Following Bi-State, the Tigers begin their march toward a fifth-straight Marawood Conference championship, and the WIAA postseason that comes in February.

“As our season progresses, we need to do several things,” Joe Schwabe said. “One is to continue to get great competition at our tournaments so each kid can fine-tune both areas of strengths and weaknesses. Along with that, there needs to be a balance between pushing the team to be in great shape and still give them time to be kids and enjoy the sport and each other.

“The methods to do that will vary from week to week and certainly changes as the personality of the team changes from year to year. The most important thing is to try and find ways to reach optimal conditioning while limiting the high-impact physical stress live wrestling has on the body.”

Auburndale, Spencer/Columbus Catholic and Marshfield will also participate in the Bi-State Tournament, which is hosted by Holmen High School. Both days begin with action at 9 a.m. at the La Crosse Center.
