Middleton wrestling coach Kent Weiler believes he has the makings of a stellar team this season.

And the first weekend of the season only enhanced that belief.

Middleton won the 10-team Nicolet Knight Scramble last Saturday in impressive fashion. The Cardinals finished with 223.5 points to edge runner-up Menomonee Falls (203.5). Valders (201.5), Nicolet (181.5) and Hartford (177) rounded out the top five.

“Team effort,” Weiler said. “It was a good day, everyone got better as the day went on.”

Middleton received first place finishes from Kevin Meicher at 132 pounds and Chris Rogers at 138. The Cardinals also got second place showings from Joseph Hoffman at 113, Max Mayhew (160), Dion Huff (170) and Caleb Cymbalak (182).

Middleton also received third place finishes from Colton Best (126) and Gavin Adler (195).

Meicher opened with a pin over Caleb Wentker of Valders in 2:13, then he pinned Dylan Spoerl of Brookfield East in 50 seconds.

Meicher then pinned Jonah Nelson of Whitefish Bay in 3:17 and pinned Marco Gomez of Hartford in 37 seconds. Then in the championship match, Meicher pinned Nate Bonesho of Menomonee Falls in 30 seconds.

Rogers had an equally impressive day.

Rogers started with a pin over Dominic Eliopoulos of Milwaukee Riverside in 53 seconds, then pinned Dakota Haupt of Valders in 24 seconds. Rogers pinned Kevin Staron of Menomonee Falls in 3:06 in the third round, then pinned Riley Kunstman of Sheboygan North in 1:56.

Rogers then capped off his perfect day by pinning Teague Worlton of Nicolet in 25 seconds.

Hoffman opened with a pin over Quentin Keller of Valders in 3:22, then won a 10-2 decision over Stephen Multhauf of Brookfield East.

In Round 3, Hoffman pinned Brett Spindler of Valders in 2:31, then followed that by pinning Hartford’s Dan Nicoson in 3:21.

In the title match, though, Riley Sleger of Valders toppled Hoffman, 12-1.

At 160, Mayhew opened with a pin over Andy Oates of Whitefish Bay in 1:40, then won in sudden victory over Saif Ibraheem of Brookfield East, 5-3.

Mayhew followed that with a pin of Dan Strouf of Valders in just 45 seconds, then pinned Cheryron Brumfield of Racine Park in 1:53.

In the championship match, Parker Keckeisen of Nicolet edged Mayhew, 9-5.

At 170, Huff opened with a pin of Sheboygan North’s Dante Williams in 4:34, then defeated Curtis Flannick of Menomonee Falls, 13-3. Huff then pinned Nicolet’s Peter Driscoll in 4:37 and Hartford’s Evan Schmitz in 3:08.

Then in the finals, Huff fell to Trevor Wittmus of Valders, 15-4.

At 182, Cymbalak opened with a 10-4 win over Isaiah Dobbs of Racine Park, then pinned Brandon Waier of Sheboygan North in 1:10. Cymbalak followed with a pin of Hartford’s Garett Buchholz in 1:23, then was edged by Nicolet’s Chris Azcueta, 6-4.

Cymbalak then rebounded and pinned Nick Martin of Brookfield East in 1:34.

Best opened with a 3-1 win over Robert Eigenberger of Sheboygan North, then pinned teammate Dylan Carrington.

Alex Reidijk of Nicolet then edged Best, 2-0, and Best fell to

Luke Oltmanns of Valders, 6-0.

In the third place match, though, Best defeated Nolan Fergus of Whitefish Bay, 3-0.

Adler won his first match by injury default, then was pinned in two consecutive matches. But Adler fought back.

First, Adler defeated Pat Schoessow of Sheboygan North, 17-4. Then, Adler defeated Joey Heuler of Brookfield East, 9-0.

Middleton also defeated Madison Memorial, 75-3, last Friday.

“It was a good night,” Weiler said.
