Nick Stencel (Clay), a senior on the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater wrestling team, was one of seven Warhawks to earn All-Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference honors for placing among the top two in his weight class at the WIAC Championship at UW-Eau Claire.

Stencel recorded his first championship at 184 pounds with a 4-0 record, including two pins, one technical fall and an 8-1 decision over UW-Platteville's Grant Wedepohl, the defending conference champion, in the final bout. He had falls in the first two rounds at 5:09 and 4:46, respectively, before a technical fall in the semifinals at 3:20.  

Sooner or later the Northern Buckeye Conference girls basketball race is going to sort itself out, but time is running out.

Heading into Thursday’s games, Eastwood, Lake, Elmwood, Otsego and Rossford all had a chance to at least clinch a tie for the NBC title. Eastwood (16-4) and Elmwood (16-5) topped the standings with 9-4 conference records, followed by Lake (15-5, 8-4), Otsego (13-8, 8-5) and Rossford (12-8, 8-5).

“It’s crazy,” Lake coach Joe Nowak said. “On any given day, any team can give another team a run for its money. Look at the records of all five teams. I think that speaks volumes for the types of players we have in our league. Look at Otsego and Elmwood from the beginning of the year to now and they are playing so much better — light years better than where they were at the beginning of the year.

The Division III championship match of the State Duals wrestling tournament last Sunday at St. John Arena in Columbus could not have gotten off to a worse start for Genoa.

The Comets suffered pins in the first two weight classes in the finals against Edison, putting Genoa in a 12-0 hole.

“They’re dynamic,” Genoa coach Bob Bergman said of the Chargers. “They had a returning state champ at 113 (pounds), and we were down 18-6 after first three (matches). We wrestled them a month ago at (Sandusky) St. Mary’s and they pinned us four times and we only pinned them twice and we only beat them by 10 points. They’re a very gritty team.
