WISCONSIN RAPIDS – The Marshfield wrestling team won its second-straight regional title by outlasting Wisconsin Rapids by 20 points to take the team title at the WIAA Division 1 wrestling regional on Saturday at Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln High School.

Bentley Schwanebeck-Ostermann (170 pounds) and Sam Mitchell (182) each won individual titles for the Tigers, who will pass 13 athletes into the individual sectional on Feb. 17 at Wausau West.

Marshfield finished with 232.5 points, 20 more than second-place Wisconsin Rapids. With the team win, the Tigers move into the WIAA Division 1 team sectional tournament Tuesday night at home where they will get a rematch with Hudson. Hudson defeated Marshfield 36-33 to qualify for the team state tournament last season.

“Some guys really stepped up their game and continue to impress me with their improvements made throughout the week,” Marshfield coach Jackson Hein said. “We look forward to another matchup against Hudson at team sectionals and another opportunity to represent the Marshfield community. At this time of the year, it is important for each wrestler to be resilient and learn from mistakes, then put it behind them and continue to move forward.”

Schwanebeck-Ostermann improved to 35-2 this season after pinning Bradley Leiskau of Merrill in 3;21 in the 170-pound championship match.

Mitchell, a state tournament qualifier a year ago, is now 39-2 after a pin of Justin Bonke of Wausau West in 5:07 of the 182-pound title match.

Marshfield had seven runner-up finishes, two others that were third, and two more taking fourth. The top four in each weight class move on to the Division 1 individual sectional, with the top two there moving on to the 2018 WIAA State Individual Wrestling Tournament in Madison on Feb. 22-24.

Tanner Kanable (29-13, 126 pounds), Caden Pearce (35-7, 138), Nolan Hertel (26-5, 145), Payton Young (26-13, 152), Alex Brost (27-7, 220), and Connor Berry (23-10, 285) all lost championship matches for the Tigers to finish second.

Issac Slark also finished second for Marshfield at 195 pounds. He won the third-place match with a pin of Walker Bathke of Merrill in 3:56, then won a second-place wrestleback over Layne Kalata of Wisconsin Rapids 3-0.

Gabe Pugh (33-5, 113) and Spencer Wirthlin (15-14, 132) both finished third, and Caden Dennee (24-10, 120) and Riley Wilcott (4-4, 106) each were fourth for Marshfield to also qualify for the individual sectional.
