Thursday night, the CGB Wolverines came to town with a strong ball club handing the Lady Trojans a 26-39 loss.

At half time, the score was 12-18 in their favor. "We knew we needed to get some- thing going on our offense end, partic- ularly from our guards because the Woverines were really jamming up the inside when Jenna Longhenry got the ball inside. We needed a spark from the outside to open things up a bit, said Coach Hoernemann. In the third quarter, Sarah Lavoi did hit a couple outside shots which was nice to see, but those shots proved to be too little, too late. The LadyVTr0jans"we held to only 6 points in the third quarter, and CBG started hitting their outside shots giving them 13 points. "We were hoping to have a stong fourth quarter putting full-court pres- sure on CGB, but we just couldn't do anything offensively," Coach Hoerneman said. Both teams ended up scoring 8 points during the fourth quarter, with the final score at 26-39. Jenna Longhenry led the Trojans with 6 points and 9 rebounds, Sarah LaVoi had 4 points, Lindsey Swenson and Lisa Spors added 3 points, Stephanie Schuelke, Amy Speth, Amy Smith, Amanda Erickson and Stacy Wiegman added 2 points each.

OHS MatMen lose two meets The Ortonville wrestling team lost two matches on Thursday at WCA. The Mat Men fell to CACGB 54-21 and WCA 59-15. According to Coach Joe Eustice, "The real difference in the two match- es was the fact that the Trojans are just too young and inexperienced. Our young kids go out in each match and give it all they have, but in many cases we are wrestling kids older and stronger then we are. We make one mistake and its over." Hwt Jason Kellen won both of his matches and raised his record to 16-1. In the first match he picked up a fall over A.J. O'Neil of CACGB. In the second match Kellen won by fall over a very tough Morgon Taylor in 3:54. The two falls give Jason a team lead- ing 13. Kellen is also the team leader in wins with 16, and team points with 124. He is also the leader in three point near falls with 14. 145 lb Jon Karels wrestled well in both'of his matches. Karels won a 10- 5 decision over Dylan Sehuster of CACGB. "He did a great job of doing the things that it takes to win," said Coach Eustice." Jon got the first takedown and put Schuster on his back to take a 5-0 lead. He was able to fight out of trou- ble and score when he needed to. In the WCA match Karels wrestled very well in a losing effort to former state entrant Dustin Schneeberger. "If Karels can wrestle this way every night he will be just fine," said Eustice. At 189 Eric Collins turned in a great effort after being sick all week. In the CACGB match he got his 12th win of the season. In the WCA match he was wrestling very well against Tom Lohse. The match was close when it appeared that Lohse slammed Collins, but the ref called it potential- ly dangerous. Collins could not con- tinue and had to injury default. "I would like to see the two kids wrestle when Eric is healthy and see how things would turn out," said Eustice. Eric is third on the team in wins with 12, and second in team points with 101. 160 Ib Cory Schmieg won both of his matches. Cory is currently second on the team in wins with 13, second in falls with 9, and third in team points with 95.5. At 103 Patrick Eustice wrestled well. In the first match he lost a close match to Adam Andrews. Patrick wrestled well, but could not match strength with the older Andrews. Patrick is fourth on the team in wins with 9, fourth in falls with 7, and fourth in team points with 69. At 140 lbs Scott Anderson picked up his first win for us. This is Scott's first year wrestling and he continues to work hard to learn new things and continues to improve. According to Coach Eustice, "The fact of the matter is that we have had some unfortunate things happen the the last two weeks that we could just not overcome on Thursday. We have had six kids quit the team and we had some injuries and illnesses. "We did not have three kids that all had falls the first time we wrestled CACGB. In an attempt to compensate for these things, I asked the kids to move up a weight to try to find a way to win the match. We moved up Dylan McLain, Eric Croatt and it just did not work out for us. If we had all or our kids and they wrestled the way they did the las.t time, we had a. chance to win the match. CACGB was just bet- ter than we were on that night." "My young kids Micah Reiffen- berger, Patrick Eustice, Irving Beccer- il, Luke Koval, Dylan McLain, Eric Croatt, David Webster, Drew John- son, Cory Homan, Clay Plemmons, and Matt Koval are all in ninth grade or lower and have all done a great job all year. The key will be if they all can stay with the program. If they do and we can add a few big kids we are going to be a very good team in a few years.", Next action for the Trojans will be in Benson on Tuesday to wrestle Ben- son, KMS and Wabasso.
