This week’s Horicon High School Team of the Week is the Horicon High School wrestling team. The Marshmen continued a solid season recently by winning the six team Poynette Invitational, picking up victories over Winnebago Lutheran, Cedarburg, Rio/Cambria-Friesland/Randolph, and Fall River, Living Word Lutheran and host Poynette.
Here’s what head coach Joe Kern had to say about the event… On Saturday, January 22nd, Horicon walked out of Poynette High School with a gold trophy in hand. There was outstanding wrestling all day, that gave Horicon their first tournament win of the season. It was a dual style tournament which matched Horicon up against 5 other teams through out the day, their first opponent, Winnebago Luthern Academy, was a close bout featuring pins from Shayne Fluhr, Cylus Hetzel-Sawyer, Brady Groenwald, and Cayden Reinwald to finish up 40 to 21. Next up was Cedarburg, who the Marshmen topped 63-6, featuring pins again from Hetzel-Sawyer, Groenwold, and Fluhr. Continuing on their roll, Horicon dualed the Co-Op team of Rio/Cambria-Friesland/Randolph/Fall River, which they stomped 54-6, featuring a pin again from Reinwald, and picked up 2 more from Brady Elvers and Bryce Twardokus. After that, the Marshmen faced their toughest opponent of the day, in a very strong Poynette team, who competed in a back and forth battle. However, it was the Marshmen coming away with the criteria win in a 36-36 tie, getting big points from pins by Hetzel-Sawyer, Zamarono, and Reinwald. Lastly, Horicon finished up with a dual against Living Word Lutheran, where they cruised to a 54-18 win. Reinwald picked up his 5th pin do the day, rounding off an immaculate performance. Other top performers were Groenwald, Elvers, Hetzel-Sawyer, and Seth Rohloff, who were all undefeated on the day. All results are on Trackwrestling.
