Hefter leads Panthers in Terry Kramer Open

FORT ATKINSON – Senior Jake Hefter earned third place at 195 pounds to lead the Plymouth Panthers in the Terry Kramer Open wrestling tournament here Saturday.

Hefter won the third-place match with a 9-7 decision over Sauk Prairie’s Marcus Hankins. Hefter, 24-5 this season, finished 4-1 in the tourney with three pins.

Also posting 4-1 records for PHS were Devin Gore who took fifth at 113 and Josh Koll who captured fifth at 152. Gore recorded two falls and Koll had one.

The Panthers finished 14th. Slinger won the 16-team tourney with 364.5 points, followed by Sauk Prairie with 363.

Plymouth’s other competitors included: Jack Miller, ninth at 106 with a 2-2 record; Will Birkholz, seventh, 138, 2-2; Kyle Schwibinger, fourth, 182, 2-2 with two pins; and Jesse Schwarten, seventh at 220 with a 2-3 mark and two falls.

PHS had only seven wrestlers who competed because several team members were unavailable due to injuries and other events.

“The kids had a good weekend of wrestling as they continue to show improvement with every match,” said Panther head coach Rick Gruber.

“Jake Hefter pinned his first three opponents before suffering a loss to Matt Hanke of Lomira who was a state qualifier in 2017. Jake came back to win his last match, placing third overall.”

Hanke major decisioned Hefter , 12-4, in the semifinals.

“Devin Gore started strong but ran into problems in his third match, suffering a loss. He came back to win his last two matches, one of which he defeated Adam Bruss of Kewaskum to whom he lost earlier this year in a conference dual meet,” said Gruber.

Gore decisioned Bruss, 4-2, in the fifth-place match.
