GREENFIELD WRESTLING

Isiah Culp and Max Andrade both claimed championships for Greenfield at the Marquette Invitational on Dec. 10.

Culp won at 106 pounds and Andrade at 126 pounds for the Hustlin' Hawks, who finished third with 206 points in the 14-team meet, which was won by West Bend East at 233½ points.

"Isiah was dominant in his matches and pinned his way through the tournament," coach Mike Weller said. "Max had three matches and recorded a pin in each. I really liked his aggressive approach in all of his matches."

Taking second were Michael Reyes (113), Alex Schroeter (120), Mateo Arteaga (145) and Deven Guibord (220), and Nat Schroeter came in third at 132.

"Mateo took a big step forward," Weller said. "Opponents really had a tough time escaping from his ride, and he was able to earn two pins and a major decision. Grant Stanioch filled in at 138 and was able to capture sixth in his first varsity tournament this year with three victories and two pins."

HALE WRESTLING

The Huskies went 3-0 to win a four-team round-robin tournament at Sheboygan Falls on Dec. 10.

Putting their offense into high gear, the Hustlin' Hawks knocked off Pius XI, 77-70, on Dec. 9.

Manny McDonald scored 20 points; Donnie Reasby added 17 points to go with seven steals and six assists; Rayvon Bartlett Jr. collected 15 points and nine rebounds; and Jared Davis 14 points and 10 boards. Those three players combined for eight 3-point field goals.

"We want to set the tempo and be aggressive," coach Kyle Johnsen said. "We like to attack and go. We try to get layups because they are the easiest shots."

Reasby, who did not play last season, has started this year well.

"He is our floor general," Johnsen said. "He can see the whole floor and can shoot and drive. He gets our kids going."

Greenfield dropped a 78-71 game to Pewaukee on Dec. 6 despite 21 points from Eric Malone, 16 by McDonald, 14 from Davis and 10 by Bartlett. The Hawks, who have had a different top scorer in each game, netted 11 3-pointers.

"We got after the players in the locker room (at halftime) and told them they have to generate some enthusiasm," coach Steve Kujawa said. "In the second half, we played great defense, and our defense became our offense with some breakaways off turnovers."

Kevion Taylor led the Falcons with 14 points, and Tyler Herro added 12 points.

Whitnall downed Greendale, 59-43, on Dec. 6 with Herro tallying 19 points on 8-of-11 shooting, plus three rebounds, two assists and two steals.

Ratka Karac tallied 15 points, Sophia Valero 11 points, Morgan Lesieur 10 points and Emma Graetz 8 points.
