Tues. Dec. 13 Home Merrill 7:30 p.m. Merrill came in as the number two ranked team in the state and will likely hold that spot for awhile longer as the Red Raiders used extra points in 6 matches along with 3 wins by decision to down the Bluejays 41-15. Merrill did start off quick as 119 pound Shawn Perry beat James Berdan 6-0 and 125 pound Matt Schneider beat Jordan Quinell 6-2. Rapids then pulled to within 1 when Jared Jaminski scored a TF over Tyler Swan. The Red Raiders then took the lead when Ben Best picked up 6 points by inj. def. over Dylan Ruplinger. Merrill's number 1 ranked, Brad Welter, could not pick up extra points but was able to beat Cody Tesch 10-4 and Merrill's other top ranked wrestler, Dustin Perry, was only able to pick up 3 team points when he beat Juan Medina 5-1. Those two matches did give Merrill a slim 12-11 lead. At 152 Mike Fuller used a last second escape to go to OT with Levi Lassa. Mike then took Lassa to the mat for an exciting 5-3 win. To me, that appeared to be the turning point. At 160 Kevin Tritz put on a gutsy display and another take down clinic by beating Joe Perry 18-8. At 171 Mike Casey scored a very impressive 6-4 decision over Merrill's Matt Hoeft. At 189 Merrill won their last match of the night when Casey Gray beat Justin Fuller 8-6. At 215 Stever Virgil dominated his match with Ben Natzke and ultimately scored a 25-8 TF. At 275 Matt Peeters won a very nice 5-1 decision over Merrill's Joe Levivkis. At 103 Merrill forfeited to Carl DeLuca and at 112 Josh Chappa pinned Brodie Altfillisch in 5:25.

Fri & Sat. Dec. 30 & 31 Away The Clash - National High School Duals. Rochester, MN. Day one of the Clash is in the books. For the Red Raiders it was a day of ups and downs. A 1 point loss to Hastings MN in the second round forced the Red Raiders into a rematch with the currently 6th ranked (nationally) Owatonna Huskies. Last year Owatonna defeated Rapids by a fairly substantial margin. This year was different as the Red Raiders tamed the Huskies 46-12. In the second round the Red Raiders were needed 2 more points against surprisingly strong Hastings. Hasting came away with a 27-26 victory. In the first round the Red Raiders were all over GMLOK, MN and ultimately defeated them 55-15. The second round loss to Hastings and the win over Owatonna means that the Red Raiders will be in the 3rd pool tomorrow and cannot finish higher than 9th.

Wrestling started at 171 as Sam Pankonen was pinned by Marshfield's Joel Krasselt in 4:40. At 189 Justin Fuller got things going for the Raiders with a 9-7 OT win over Joe Scherr. At 215 Steve Virgil knotted the dual at 6 with a hard fought 6-3 decision over Trevor Cordes. At 275 Nic Lisiecki picked up Marshfield's last points or the evening with a 4-1 decision over Matt Peeters. At 103 Carl DeLuca beat Robert Stevenson 12-4. At 112 Josh Chappa recieved a forfeit. At 119 James Berdan needed 1:46 to pin Cody Brooks. At 125 Jordan Quinell outlasted Adam Strobel 6-4. At 130 Jared Jaminski pinned Tim Quinlan in 2:37. At 135 Craig Melville used up 1:36 in pinning Zac Scherr. At 140 Cody Tesch only need :58 to put away Chris Brooks. At 145 Juan Medina pinned Jim Ecke in 1:07. At 152 Marshfield decided they didn't want to wrestle kevin Tritz so they forfeited and moved Dylan Stichert up to face Andy Slattery. Slattery took an early lead, survived a nasty looking (no call) slam and then went on to beat Stichert 2-1. The crowd saw a lot of toughness in that one.

Tues. Jan 10 Home DC Everest 7:30 p.m. 100 consecutive Wisconsin Valley Conference dual meet wins in row. That's the milestone the Red Raiders reached tonight. They did it by defeating the DC Everest Evergreens 48-12. The incredible win streak goes all the way back to 1993. At 103 Carl DeLuca pinned Matt Pritzl in 1:23. At 112 Josh Chappa received a forfeit. At 119 James Berdan beat Bruce Yang 3-0. At 125 Jordan Quinnell beat Josh Clearwater 5-2. At 130 Jared Jaminski beat Aron Gilling 7-4. At 135 Craig Melville received a forfeit. At 140 Everest picked up one of their three wins when Andy Dement defeated Cody Tesch 5-1. At 145 Juan Medina beat Erik Gilling 9-5. At 152 kevin Tritz won on a 26-11 TF over Chris Meurette. At 160 Mike Fuller beat Chris Buedding 8-0. At 171 Everest's James Hollman pinned Sam Pankonen in 2:24. At 189 Justin Fuller used a last second takedown to beat Neil Graefe 3-1. At 215 Steve Virgil pinned Dustin Fisher in 2:47 and at 275 kevin Geurink (DCE) defeated Matt Peeters 2-1 in 2OT.

Thurs. Jan 12 Away Wausau West. Although the Red Raiders beat the Warriors of Wausau West tonight, it's my opinion that they didn't look quite as sharp as they have in other meets this year. They made a few costly mistakes but were still able to top West 40-22. At 103 Joey Marsh pinned Carl DeLuca in 5:03. At 112 Steven Monk beat Josh Chappa 5-4. At 119 James Berdan beat Sam Umlauf 5-2. At 125 Jared Jaminski beat Jacki Lor 16-2. At 130 Josh Kyle pinned Jordan Quinnell in 5:12. At 135 Craig Mellville beat Zach Willms 5-1. At 140 Brandon Marcis defeated Cody Tesch 13-4. At 145 Juan Medina beat Chris Renken 16-8. At 152 Kevin Tritz scored a TF over Joshua Hein. At 160, in what probably the most exciting match of the evening, Mike Fuller beat Jackson Hein 9-8. At 171 Mike Casey beat Brent Lenard 3-2. At 189 Phil Larkin beat Justin Fuller 9-6. At 215 Steve Virgil won by inj. def. over Tyler Utecht and at 274 Matt Peeters pinned Alan Koeller in 3:37. I have a feeling we'll see a much more fired up Red Raider team this Saturday as they face Ellsworth, Totino Grace and nationally ranked Glenbard North at the fieldhouse in Wisconsin Rapids. In case you're not aware, Glenbard North was a top four finisher at the Clash and looks to be very solid.

Sat. Jan. 14 Home Rapids Quad Noon. Glenbard North IL, Ellsworth, WI and Totino Grace, MN. Overall the Rad Raiders wrestled much better today than they did Thursday night, but not good enough to beat a very tough Glenbard North team. After this year's 28-20 loss, the Raiders are now 4-4 against Glenbard North. At 103 Tony Ramos defeated Carl DeLuca 17-7. At 112 Josh Chappa beat Jimmy Chase 4-0. At 119 James Berdan beat Geno Capezio 9-5. At 125 Danny Monaco defeated Jared Jaminski 11-7. At 130 Mark Schultz defeated Jordan Quinnell 7-0. At 135 Vince Ramos defeated Cody Tesch 10-5. At 140 Carlos Lopez defeated Juan Medina 6-3. At 145 Kevin Tritz scored 24-7 TF over Dan Nelson. At 152 Bryan O'Connor defeated Andy Slattery 14-7. At 160 Travis Moffit defeated Mike Fuller 3-1 in OT. At 171 Roy Feltson defeated Mike Casy 8-4. At 189 Justin Fuller beat Mike Eldridge 3-1 in OT.

Justin Fuller beat Clayton 2-0. Steve Virgil beat Jordan Eggenberger 10-7 and Matt Peeters beat Jon Chisholm 7-1.

Thurs. Jan. 19 Home Antigo 7:30 p.m.  It looked to me as though the Red Raiders unloaded a little frustration tonight and in the process handed it to Antigo in more ways than one.  The Red Raiders scored 3 technical falls, 2 pins, 1 major decision and 3 decisions as they pounded a short handed Antigo team 70-0.  Carl DeLuca, Josh Chappa, Jared Jaminski, Juan Medina and Matt Peeters all received a forfeit.  At 119 James Berdan won on a 17-2 TF.  At 125 Jordan Quinnell beat Nick King 8-4.  At 135 Craig Melville beat Caleb Sanford 8-3.  At 140 Cody Tesch beat Cam Sanford with a 3-1 OT decision.  At 152 Kevin Tritz won on a 23-8 TF.  At 160 Mike Fuller used up 1:06 in pinning Mike Petroskey.  At 171 Mike Casey won on a 21-5 TF over Derek Muraski.  At 189 Justin Fuller pinned Tyler DeBroux in 3:37, and at 215 Steve Virgil beat Justin Sorano 19-8. Next up the Rapids travels down to DeForest for an individual type tournament.  Waverly-Shell Rock is the defending Iowa state champions and should give the Red Raiders some great matches.  Plan on being there to support our team.  Wrestling begins at 9:30 a.m.

Sat. Jan. 21 Away DeForest Tournament 9:30 a.m.  The Red Raiders were outstanding today.  With 7 champions, 3 fourth place finishers, 2 third place finishers and 2 second place finishers, the Red Raiders racked up 363 points to easily outdistance the defending state champions from Iowa, Waverly-Shell Rock, who had 228.5 points.  Mukwonago came in third with 223 points, Muskego fourth with 204, Neenah fifth with158.5, Cambridge sixth with 145, Deforest seventh with 133.5, Westfield eighth with 118, Elkhorn ninth with 95 and Edgewood tenth with 51.5 points.

Josh Chappa followed suit by pinning Travis Frassetto in 1:58. Jared Jaminski won by major decision over Glen Meyerhofer of Kaukauna 11-3.

Sat. Feb. 18 Individual Sectionals Kaukauna 10:00 a.m. If you're into reading some of the online forums, you might have the idea that the Red Raiders would have been out-manned at the extremely tough Kaukauna Sectional. Most predictions had the Raiders qualifying 4 or 5 wrestlers for the State individual Tournament. Well, as is usually the case when someone provides some incentive, the Red Raiders came though in a big way. Rather than qualifying 4, they are sending 8 outstanding individuals down to Madison. Jeremy Clark, Josh Chappa, Jared Jaminski, Jordan Quinnell, Kevin Tritz, Mike Casey, Justin Fuller and Steve Virgil all qualified. Quinnell, Tritz and Casey qualified as Sectional Champions while Clark, Chappa, Jaminski, Fuller and Virgil will be making the trip as a Sectional Runner-up. If you're interested in team points, the Red Raider picked up a whopping 145.5 points. kaukuana was a distant second with 101 (5 qualifiers) and Pulaski was third with 72 points (3 qualifiers).
