HOLMEN — With his team clinging to a four-point lead and just his match remaining, Kalyn Jahn didn’t think about anything but winning.
The Holmen High School freshman wasn’t about to stay away from Sparta sophomore Brett Von Ruden or play it safe despite the fact that Von Ruden was in the tough spot of needing a major decision or better to tie the score.
Wisconsin Rapids rides falls to narrow win over SPASH
STEVENS POINT – Fritz Schierl trudged to the locker room after his 160-pound match Thursday night, and the blank look on his face spoke 1,000 words.
Stevens Point Area Senior High wrestling coach Rob King could have sworn Schierl had pinned Dylan Hall in the first period of their pivotal match.
About the only person who didn’t see Schierl record a fall was the referee and the difference in team points compared to his major decision made a huge difference on the scoreboard.

Stoughton plans wrestling dual at Performing Arts Center
JON MASSON email@example.com, 608-252-6185 12 hrs ago 2
Stoughton athletic director Mel Dow was brainstorming with others about where to showcase the Stoughton-Oregon wrestling dual meet on Jan. 22.
A novel idea was hatched.
The dual meet between the Stoughton and Oregon wrestling teams at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 22 has been scheduled for the Stoughton High School Performing Arts Center, which is the auditorium at the school, Dow said.
When trying to find a venue, Dow discovered the stage was the exact length of the 42-foot mat.
WiWrestling.com said the setting perhaps will be “reminiscent of gladiators in an ancient Roman arena.”

Schiro family ‘the linchpin’ behind La Follette’s growth
BRANDON STORLIE For the State Journal Jan 13, 2016
Faced with the same question, Francesco Schiro’s older brothers might provide a more diplomatic answer. But the Madison La Follette junior isn’t one to mince words.
“Usually, everyone tries to say they’re the best, but I think it’s clear,” he said after a practice this week.
For the moment, even twin brother Salvatore is willing to concede the family crown — with a qualifier.
“Right now, it’s him,” Salvatore said. “Everyone’s good. I think he’s shown he’s working hard right now.”
