Sometimes it pays to be quick with a mouse and a keyboard.

Milton wrestling coach Pat Jauch was included in an email to high school coaches around the state, wondering if any programs would be interested in scheduling one of their dual matches to take place prior to a University of Wisconsin match at the UW Fieldhouse.

Jauch jumped at the opportunity.

“I would be surprised if it was more than a minute,” Jauch said this week when asked how long it took him to reply. “I said, ‘We’re in.’”

Stoughton’s coaches replied quickly, too. And about a day later, Jauch received an email back congratulating his program for being chosen to wrestle Stoughton on Dec. 7.

Thus, another chapter in one of the most heated high school wrestling rivalries in the state will be written at 5 p.m. that night. It will be a prelude to UW’s match against Maryland at 8 p.m. on the Big Ten Network.

The opportunity also includes the Badgers visiting both Stoughton and Milton for practices that are open to the public, as well as UW honoring a longtime head coach from each school.

“I didn’t care who it was, but I’m glad it’s them (Stoughton),” Jauch said. “It’s great for wrestling.”

That seems to be the idea for Barry Davis and the University of Wisconsin program.
