WIAA wrestling: Random Lake advances to State

By

Since the start of the season, the Random Lake wrestling team has had its sights set on one prize. On Tuesday night it got one step closer to claiming it.

Ten Rams each had a pair of wins in rolling to a 68-3 win over Kenosha Christian Life before clinching their third consecutive trip to the WIAA State Team Wrestling Tournament with a 48-13 win over Lomira at a Laconia-hosted Division 3 sectional on Tuesday night.

Jesse Verbanac (182 pounds), Reed Anklam (285), Brandon Depies (120) and Zak Stepniewski (132) won both of their matches via pin for Random Lake while Trent Gottsacker (138) had a pair of technical falls.

Nick Klein (195), Chris Lewis (220), Josh Depies (106), Jacob Behn (145) and Helton Vandenbush (160) also collected two wins each for the Rams.

Random Lake, the champion of the Central Lakeshore Conference and ranked third in Divsion 3 by Wisconsin Wrestling Online, will make its fifth state appearance since 2008 on March 8 at 10 a.m. The Rams face second-ranked Coleman, which earned sectional wins over Crandon (54-27) and Stratford (42-40).

The No. 2-ranked Cougars have nine individuals ranked by WWO — sophomore Derick Teteak (HM, 106), freshman Jordan Blanchard (No. 8, 113), junior Jensyn Schall (No. 2, 126), junior Marc Lansin (No. 8, 132), senior Jackson Margis (No. 4, 138), sophomore Kevin Lansin (HM, 145), senior Trevor Seewald (No. 2, 152), senior Dexter Karban (No. 1, 160) and junior CJ Pillath (No. 4, 220).

Random Lake enters State with 10 ranked individuals — freshman Depies (HM, 106); freshman Levi Kohn (No. 9, 113); senior Depies (No. 2, 120); junior Jon Mudlaff (No. 8, 126); senior Stepniewski (HM, 132); senior Gottsacker (No. 7, 138); senior Behn (No. 9, 145); senior Adam Risse (No. 7, 170); senior Klein (No. 8, 195) and senior Anklam (No. 1, 285).

The Random Lake-Coleman winner advances to the state finals at 3 p.m. on March 8 to take on the winner of the Spring Valley/Elmwood-Riverdale semifinal.
