KANELAND—With a full lineup after the end of football season, it was time to hit the mat for Kaneland wrestling on Saturday morning.

At Freeport High School, Kaneland emerged with a win over the host Pretzels and a 43-22 loss against Kendall County rival Oswego.

In other victories, 125-pounder Tyler Esposito won a 15-1 major decision, and 140-pounder Andrew Essex won by pin over Wade Dodson in 5:47.

Against the Panthers, wins were harder to come by, but 189-pound rep Keagan Mattes took a 62-second pinfall over Jack Smith, and Kovalick added to the mix with a 4-0 decision. Boyle won a 5-0 decision, and the 130-pound clash went to Dan Goress, who took a 14-3 major decision on the final matchup.

On the horizon for Kaneland wrestling is the first Northern Illinois Big XII meeting in school history, at Sycamore on Thursday, Dec. 2, at 5:30 p.m., and a weekend meeting at Lemont High School that will also feature Thornton Fractional South on Saturday, Dec.4.

Golf outshoots Rochelle, drop matchup with Yorkville

It was a win some, lose some week for the Knights golf squad.

On Monday, KHS golf lost a 155-175 decision to the Yorkville Foxes.

However, Kaneland followed that up with a Tuesday win vs. Rochelle by a 165-173 mark to bring its record to 2-4 in dual action.

Yorkville’s Conor McCormack shot a 32 against the Knights. The top score for the Knights was asset Hayley Guyton, who shot a 41. J.C. Gillett managed a 43, while Josh Schuberg shot a 44. Hayden Senese was close behind with a 47.

The JV roster lost a 177-188 matchup with Yorkville despite the best efforts of Rhys Childs and Ryan Goodenough, who both shot 45.

On Thursday, the Knights lost a 157-166 battle with the DeKalb Barbs. Cody Schmitt of DHS shot a 38 to clinch medalist honors, while Guyton and Gillett shot 41’s. Schuberg and Tyler Hochsprung shot 42’s.

Against the Hubs, Troy Krueger shot a clutch 38, while Tyler Hochsprung managed a 42, as did Guyton.

Schuberg and Senese both shot 43 in the winning cause.

The JV Knights defeated Rochelle, 177-213. Luke Kreiter propelled Kaneland to a win with a 43 score, followed by Dan Miller at 44.

Kaneland gears up for host Glenbard South on Thursday, Sept. 17.

Golf follows that matchup with a home clash against Indian Creek and Plano on Monday, Sept. 21, at 4 p.m.

Golfers edge Spartans, fall to Marengo Indians

For now, everything’s coming up snake-eyes for the Kaneland High School golfers.

The Knights are 1-1-1 in dual competition, but came away with a tight win against rival Sycamore on Tuesday at Hughes Creek. That followed a 167-174 loss to Marengo on Thursday.

The win over Sycamore went Kaneland’s way after both teams were tied at 166. But the top four scores for Kaneland out-performed Sycamore’s top four entries.

Heroes for KHS included Hayden Senese (41), Troy Krueger (41), Tyler Hochsprung (42) and Hayley Guyton (42).

Sycamore’s Alex Schultz golfed a 37.

The JV Knights lost to the Spartans by a 175-188 mark. Top scores for Kaneland included Mitch Gemini’s 45 and Luke Kreiter’s 46.

Against Marengo, Guyton shot a 40 to get medalist honors, while Krueger and Josh Schuberg shot 43 each. Zach Douglas managed a 48. Marengo’s Jake Tucker keyed the Indians’ win.

The JV crew took care of business against the Indians with a 190-198 win. Knight Rhys Childs rose to the occasion with a 45 score, followed by Gemini’s 46, Ryan Goodenough’s 49 and Kreiter’s 50.

Grapplers prep for Sandwich

by Mike Slodki
Kaneland wrestling needed one last tune-up before this Saturday’s IHSA Class 2A regional at Sandwich High School.

Time will tell how key the triangular with Marengo and Hampshire was in preparation for the postseason gathering.

With Kaneland’s 45-29 loss to the Marengo Indians and the 63-18 win over first-year program Hampshire, the final dual mark for the Knights is 11-16 (2-5 Western Sun Conference).

Noteworthy pins against the Indians were accomplished by 103-pound asset Ryan Goodenough, 119-pounder Josh Kuefler and 125-pounder Devon Scholl.

“All I did, basically, was try to go out there with intensity, and we needed pins,” Scholl said.

Scholl’s bracket on Saturday morning in Sandwich looks like a gauntlet, with competitors like Yorkville’s Jed Lightfoot and Rochelle’s Geoff Huntley.

“125 is pretty stacked, it’s pretty tough,” Scholl said. “Going through the season, you tough it out and dig deep and that’s what you have to do there.”

Besides KHS, Yorkville, Rochelle and the host Indians, the regional also houses Aurora Central Catholic, Oswego and Sycamore.

Individual standouts will meet up at the LaSalle-Peru Sectional on Saturday, Feb. 14, along with personnel from the Peoria Woodruff, Pontiac and Geneseo regionals.

KHS earns 6th at Flott Invite; Levita takes 2nd at 145

Ten Knights battle through competition to place in weight classes

Kaneland wrestling (10-15, 2-4 WSC) had a chance to put competition on notice, and a good number of the Knights did just that.

At the Margaret Flott Memorial Wrestling Invite on Saturday at Kaneland High School, Addison Trail won the meeting with 178.5 points, while Kaneland finished with 120 points.

Prairie Central of Fairbury finished second with 136.5 points and Burlington Central took third with 132 points, out of 13 schools.

Several Kaneland grapplers did their school and faithful proud during the day.

Ryan Goodenough, at 103 pounds, finished fourth overall. Teammate Tyler Esposito had a fourth-place finish at 112 pounds. Josh Kuefler finished sixth at 119 pounds. 125-pounder Devon Scholl also took sixth in his group. At 135 pounds, Dennis Brettman finished in sixth place. Kyle Davidson took fourth in the 140-pound group. Jay Levita was runner-up at 145 pounds. At 152 pounds, Cody McGinnis finished fifth. J.T. Webb finished sixth at 160 pounds. Heavyweight Jimmy Boyle took third in his grouping.

Goodenough got a pin over Burlington Central’s Jon Wight in 1:40 in his grouping before losing to Nathan Andresen of Elgin in 4:51.

Esposito beat Prairie Central’s Joey Reis 15-5 in his grouping but lost to Burlington’s Omar Awad 10-4 in the third place match.

Kuefler beat Josh Reece of St. Edward in the consolation bracket on his way to sixth.

Scholl beat Marengo’s Torben Hoffmeyer 14-0 in the consolation bracket and Ottawa’s Zack Harvey in 1:28 with a pinfall before losing to Oswego’s Ross Reeder in the fifth place match.

Brettman earned a 13-2 decision over Oswego’s Angel Ortiz and a 3-0 decision over Burlington’s Al Willett and a 1:43 pinfall over Elgin’s Ryan Anderson.

Davidson beat Sebastian Altamirano of Elgin in 1:08 and St. Joseph’s Zach Moreno in :54.

The top finisher on the day for Kaneland was Levita as he took care of Larkin’s Perry Allerton with a 2:24 pinfall. He then stuck Prairie Central’s Alex Reis with a 3:30 pinfall before losing 11-2 to Joey Moorhouse of Marengo.

McGinnis earned a 4:29 win over Oswego’s Dan Roman and won the fifth-place match with a 12-8 win over Ottawa’s Derek Martin.

Webb earned a technical fall over Marengo’s Jon Goerke in 3:23 and pinned Ottawa’s Tony Downey in 5:12 before falling to Jon DiBuono of Oswego in 3:27.

Boyle earned a :54 pin against Marian Central Carholic’s Josh LaLuz, and later nabbed a 1-0 win for third place over Ed Nevarez.

Kaneland’s 39-34 win over Geneva on Thursday also featured Senior Night, and wins by Matt Weaver, Levita, A.J. Wagner, and Boyle.

Kaneland now gears up for a meet featuring the other WSC schools at the WSC Tournament in Sycamore on Saturday, Jan. 24 at 9 a.m.

Wrestlers earn 1 win out of 3 at Saturday’s Argo quad

            Knights wrestling probably couldn’t think of a better present for itself after two weeks of no meets than to get back on the mat and start pinning people.

            The giving began on Saturday out at south suburban Argo High School in Summit for a quad also featuring Chicago’s St. Patrick and Kelly High Schools.

            The Knights lost to St. Patrick 42-33, but beat Kelly 44-27 before losing to host Argo 32-26. In dual meet competition, the Knights sit at 5-7.

            Knight grapplers who secured wins against the St. Patrick Shamrocks of the East Suburban Catholic included 125-pound entry Devon Scholl who won his match 7-1, Matt Weaver at 130 pounds who got a pinfall in 38 seconds, Kyle Davidson at 140 who eked out a 7-6 win, 145-pound asset Jay Levita with a 2:46 pinfall and heavyweight Jimmy Boyle with a 9-3 win.

            Against the Kelly Trojans, Kaneland soared to victory thanks to a 6-0 win by School, a technical fall by Levita in 3:10, a 1:28 fall by 160-pounder J.T. Webb.

171-pound grappler Tim Meyer also won his matchup with a 9-6 total.

            In the close loss to the host Argonauts, 103-pounder Ryan Goodenough took a technical fall in four minutes. Scholl took a pinfall in 3:59 and Weaver won a 7-6 affair.

            Teammate Emiliano Ponce won his matchup 8-6, Davidson earned a pin in 3:48 and Levita won his matchup by an 8-7 clip.

            Coming up for the Knights is the usual Don Flavin stop in DeKalb which takes place on Monday, Dec. 29 and Tuesday, Dec. 30.

Grapplers tear through Saturday quad

Kaneland wrestlers earn three wins at Rochelle meet

            What’s the best remedy for a 1-5 dual meet start if you’re Kaneland wrestling?

            How about going to town on three opponents on Saturday.

            Kaneland improved to 4-5 after a successful outing at Rochelle High School’s gym.
           
In three matchups, the Monty Jahns-led Knights defeated host Rochelle 48-19, Bremen High School of Midlothian 63-12 and Lemont High School 37-32.

            Highlights against the Hubs included 135-pound entry Emiliano Ponce nabbing a 7-6 win with a takedown in the final period.

            Kyle Davidson, at the 140-pound mark, stuck a pin at the 4:42 mark.

            Jay Levita almost pulled out a win in the 145-pound match, down 10-8 in the final period, but lost 13-12 in a valiant effort.

            In the 103-pound match against the Hubs, Ryan Goodenough pulled out a 4:51 pin for a victory. In the 112-pound meeting, entry Tyler Esposito earned a pinfall in 1:44.

            Josh Kuefler won his meeting in the 119-pound range in just 27 seconds due to a pinfall.

            At this time a year ago, the Knights were 5-4 in dual meet action. At that very meet at Rochelle a year ago, Kaneland beat Bremen 60-21, but lost to Rochelle 40-33 and lost to Lemont 46-27.

            In oncoming action, the Knights host Western Sun Conference rival DeKalb on Friday, Dec. 12 at 5:30 p.m., and then travel to rival Glenbard South’s Raider turf on Tuesday, Dec. 16 at 5:30 p.m.
