GREEN DEMONS COMPETE AT MAUSTON GOLDEN EAGLES TOURNAMENT ON SUNDAY 1-16-2011

GREEN DEMONS COMPETE AT MAUSTON GOLDEN EAGLES TOURNAMENT ON SUNDAY 1-16-2011

Quite a large turnout of Green Demon youth wrestlers attended the Mauston Youth Wrestling Folkstyle tournament on Sunday at the Mauston High School.  A packed gym of roughly 500 wrestlers provided some great competition for the 28 competing Demon club members, and with a final team score of 77, the Demons were  ever so slightly shorted of snagging a team trophy, missing the cut by a mere 3 points. 

For many of our new wrestlers, they saw their first wins of their career, and for others, their first pins. 2nd year wrestler, Christopher Humphrey is proud to say he gained his first ever and well-deserved pin in the 3rd round.  Nicholas Prasalowicz, Johnny Drankiewicz, Josh Wallner, JJ Corral, and Isaac Salinas each achieved a first place trophy for the day, with a combined total of 7 pins. Nicholas Prasalowicz proudly earned a pin in all three of his competition rounds. Justyn Kniprath had his first wins of the season, with some impressive takedowns and a pin in the first round.  Shane Kierstyn, Nasano Corral and other first-year wrestlers enjoyed their first ever competition matches, and experienced the adrenalin rush of competing individually on the mat.  There will be plenty more to come in the following weeks, as the Green Demons travel to Westby, Sparta, Wautoma, Pittsville and others. In addition to the upcoming traveling tournaments the club will be attending, The Green Demons will be hosting their Adams Friendship 33rd Annual “Feel the Heat” Youth Folkstyle Tournament home tournament at the Adams Friendship High School on Saturday, January 30th, 2011 with weigh ins beginning at 7 am.

Congratulations to each of the Green Demon Wrestlers this past weekend, regardless of place.

DEMONS AWARDED 2nd PLACE TEAM at MAUSTON TOURNEY!

March 22, 2010

As this past weekend will end the season for many of the Green Demons, bringing home a 2nd place trophy from the Mauston Youth Wrestling Tournament was a great way to wrap up the season, not to mention, a great way to bring in the first day of spring.  A turnout of 19 wrestlers brought forth a large group of cheerful supporters in the audience to applaud the Demon wrestlers in some exciting matches.  Gavin Glass, a first year wrestler, earned his first win in his 2nd round match, and experienced the payoff of his hard work and learning throughout the season. As a first year wrestler, Gavin exhibited outstanding improvements to his skill, technique and determination on the mat.  Overall, Gavin Placed 2nd in Mauston, a definite reason to hold his head high.  Spirits were high, as the team collected the unique “Eagle” trophy to add to the Green Demon club collection.  1st place contributors to the team trophy included Sebastian Billington, Nicholas Prasalowicz, Rylan Burows and Josh Wallner. Nicholas added some extra points to the roster with three pins, pinning his opponents quick enough that his matches were over before many even realized that he had wrestled!  Placing 2nd in addition to Gavin were: Damian Crary, Tyler Burows, Brandon Kniprath, Justyn Kniprath, Dylan Richardt and Griffin West. Griffin’s display of drive and determination, accompanied by his strong will provided an entertaining set of matches. Harry Nawrot, Steven Nawrot, Isaac Salinas Jr., Frank Murray and Travis Ross earned 3rd place.  Christafer Humphrey, Nate Lamberton and Makinlea Gast each placed 4th.   As the season begins to draw to a close, our state-bound competitors and their teammates alike anxiously await the upcoming state tournament in Madison on the 27th.   The Green Demons will also be hosting their Annual Awards Banquet and Potluck Dinner on Tuesday, March 30th as their last official get together of the season. All wrestlers and their families are encouraged to attend the banquet to receive their awards and enjoy a fun-filled evening featuring a 2009-2010 season highlights slide show, a few words of wisdom from our coaches and wrestlers and a parents meeting. Once again, the Green Demon Youth Wrestling Club wishes to thank our sponsors, community volunteers, coaches, parents and fans for a great year!

12 GREEN DEMONS HEADED TO STATE

March 22, 2010

Article by Tanya Burrows

Youth wrestling is alive and well in the Adams Friendship area, and in the Green and White tradition, 12 area youth wrestlers will head to Madison this Friday to compete in the Wisconsin Wrestling Federation Kids Folkstyle State Tournament. The 12 youth from Adams Friendship will be joined by over 1300 other youth wrestlers from across the state all competing for a coveted WWF trophy and a place on the podium.  Placing first or second at one of the regional competition sites on Saturday March 13th was just the first obstacle these young wrestlers faced in achieving their 2010 goal.  Waiting two weeks to compete in Madison, keeping their eye on the prize and maintaining their weight until state are a few of the others.  

For some of the Green Demons, a first trip to state has nerves jumping and anticipation levels high.  Garrett Gasienica, Griffin West, Sebastian Billington, Makinlea Gast, Seirra Kemp and Frank Murray  are making their first trip to the state tournament  and hoping to have their names in the books as one of the top 6 youth wrestlers in their age group and weight class.  For veteran wrestlers Jared Lenze, Rylan Burrows, Brandon Kniprath, Cole Clark, Trenton McManus and Dylan Richardt, the experience of competing at State is nothing new, but  the challenge remains the same.  Wrestling action will begin Friday night at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison on one of 14 mats.  Wrestlers born 1995 through 1998, wrestling in the boys division on Friday will include from A-F Cole Clark, Trenton Mc Manus, Rylan Burrows, Dylan Richardt, and Frank Murray. These boys will wrestle 2 matches Friday night, and must have at least one win to continue on Saturday.

Wrestling will begin early Saturday morning for the other 7 A-F wrestlers. For Sierra Kemp and Makinlea Gast, it will be a first for the WWF as well as them; as this year’s  tournament has its own girls division.  Joining the girls on the mats early Saturday will be Jared Lenze and Brandon Kniprath, both returning state qualifiers; and first time competing will be Garrettt Gasiencia, Sebastian Billington, and Griffin West. Competition for the older boys will resume about noon on Saturday.

In a addition to the Green Demons regular fundraising  efforts, a generous e donation by Dr. Joseph Parlante of Adams helped to  make the trip to Madison a reality for the Green Demons.  Wish these youth wrestlers luck as they hit the mats hard this last week of practice leading up to the ultimate experience  of wrestling at The WWF State Tournament. GO Green Demons!!

REGIONAL SUCCESS FOR GREEN DEMONS

March 17, 2010

By Jason R. West

After months of blood, sweat and tears the WWF Kids Folkstyle Regionals were finally here for the wrestlers of the Adams community. For most of these wrestlers this day has been marked on their calendar since last November when the wrestling season started. The WWF Kids Folkstyle Regionals is one step away from having the opportunity of becoming a state champion. In order to make it to state, a wrestler must finish with a first or second place finish at one of the eight regional locations. There were a total of 17 youth wrestlers from the Adams community from various clubs that competed. I’m proud to report that 10 of these competitors earned their way to the state competition. Jared Lenze, Trenton McManus and Cole Clark all took a first place at the Merrill Regional. Rylan Burrows also competed at Merrill but finished with a 2nd place after a hard fought one point defeat in the finals. At the Westby Regional Sierra Kemp, Makinlea Gast, Dylan Richardt and Sebastian Billington all took a first place and are moving on to state. Brandon Kniprath and Frank Murray took a second place at Westby and will be meeting up with their fellow teammates in Madison on Friday and Saturday, March 26th and 27th at the Alliant Energy Center for the WWF Kids State Folkstyle Tournament.  Garett Gasienica and Griffin West have both been called to wrestle as well, summoned as alternates who will also compete for a spot on the podium in Madison, bringing the total STATE BOUND GREEN DEMON count to 12 !

Congratulations to all of the youth wrestlers that competed this weekend at Regionals!
