The Marengo Wrestling program had another successful season that ended with a team record of 16-4. The team was anchored by its two Regional and Sectional Champions: Landen Pfeiffer and Joe Mier. Teammates Joe Resendez, Kenny Reed, and James Mier also participated in the Sectional Meet. Four wrestlers qualified for the state meet; Kenny Reed and James Mier as alternates, and Landen Pfeiffer and Joe Mier both earning the right to compete in the State Tournament in Champaign, Illinois.

Landen Pfeiffer, a junior, made his second trip to the State Tournament. He finished the tournament with a 5th place medal and ended his season at an impressive 40-8 record. He is eyeing the opportunity for a return trip his senior year.

Joe Mier, a senior, made his third trip to the State Tournament. Joe competed in the State Championship match, earning a very remarkable 2nd Place medal! Joe ended his season with an outstanding 39-2 record and ended his career at Marengo with 122 total wins!

The Marengo wrestling teamís head coach Tim Keefer and assistant coach Chad Miller continue to build a strong program and develop their wrestlers to put them in the best situation each year.

SINGINí IN THE RAIN

Based on the classic movie musical starring Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds, Singiní in the Rain follows silent film actor Don Lockwood (Philip Meinecke) who with the help of best friend Cosmo (Raina Tynis) tries to convince aspiring actress Kathy (Amanda Tomasi) to fall for him, avoid his manipulative co-star Lina (Elise Brevik), and save Monumental Pictures. Unlike previous productions, this one came with the added challenges of tap dancing as well as attempting to pay homage to the 1952 film and its 1927 setting. Also setting this production apart are all the added effects, including a rain system for the title song, and actual silent film footage shot at the Old Courthouse in Woodstock. Singiní in the Rain is kid-friendly, and has a little something for everyone, so bring the entire family! Performance dates are March 9 and 10 at 7 pm as well as March 11th at 2 and 7 pm. Early booking at mchs.booktix.com is encouraged, and those interested in updates and previews should check out the Marengo Thespianís Facebook page. »
