Ozaukee comes back from bad loss on the mat

Ozaukee Press staff

It was a better showing on Monday than on Jan. 20 for the Ozaukee High School wrestling team.

The Warriors lost at Big East Conference-leading Reedsville, 54-28, but competed more intensely than in a 48-24 loss against Mishicot four days earlier.

“We hung in some matches, pretty tough matches. We gave up some pins in matches that were close that weren’t supposed to be close,” coach Cole Large said.

At 120 pounds, Mya Delleree beat Amelia Stetson in a 13-2 major decision.

“She was working for a pin but couldn’t quite get there,” Large said.

Against Mishicot’s Kaden Tesarik, Delleree won, 8-5.

“She just dominated, put the kid on her back,” Large said.

Tesarik came back with a throw, catching Delleree out of position, but Delleree held on.

Delleree competes in the girls’ state tournament in La Crosse on Saturday at 114 pounds. She starts with Skylar Wieczorek of Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau/Melrose-Mindoro.

“She has a good spot in the bracket. She’s ranked pretty high. She should have a great opportunity,” Large said.

Other wins against Reedsville were: Efrain Altamirano’s pin over Ellie Kasper in 3:35 at 126 pounds and Joe Grabowski’s pin over Shawn Storzer in 3:41 at 152 pounds. The Warriors won two matches by forfeit.

“Efrain looked really good,” Large said.

Phil McLarty and Talan Dybul were both pinned “but are taking the right steps. They’re looking more like they’re capable,” Large said.

Aside from Delleree’s victory, Ozaukee’s only other wrestled win against Mishicot was Skyler Mills’ 8-2 decision over Harrison Sauer at 285 pounds.

The Warriors lost five other wrestled matches.

Ozaukee on Thursday hosts Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah and Cedar Grove-Belgium on youth and senior night. It will be the Warriors final dual matches of the season.

They compete at an Oakfield tournament on Saturday. Large said he is going with Delleree to La Crosse, along with Mya’s brother Jaysen and Large’s brother Cael, who both helped coach on college break, and his assistant coaches are handling the tournament.
