AUBURN HILLS – Athletics
is, after all, part of the educa-
tional process.
Dominic LaJoie had to wait
a while to put his lesson in to
practice. When he did, it
worked to perfection.
LaJoie defeated Dalton
Roberts of Fowlerville, 11-7,
Saturday to win the Michigan
High School Athletic
Association 103-pound
Division II state champi-
onship at The Palace of
Auburn Hills.
LaJoie became the first
freshman in Gaylord High
School wrestling history to
earn a state title, and he is the
third Blue Devil wrestler to
be crowned an individual
state champ. Ryan Bokas
(1999) and Kyle O’Neill (2004,
2005) are the others.
LaJoie closed his fabulous
freshman campaign by
avenging his only loss of the
season. Roberts defeated
LaJoie, 3-2, in the regional
final on Feb. 15. LaJoie fin-
ished the season 50-1, while
Roberts, a senior, went 46-6.
LaJoie was one of five Blue
Devils to earn a medal at the
Finals. Gaylord’s Tristan
Gregory and Shane Foster
placed fifth and seventh,
respectively, at 189; while
Jonathan Martin and Trenton
Lashuay finished fourth and
seventh, respectively, at 112.
Two other Blue Devils, Seth
Lashuay (125) and Jeff Heinz
(135) did not place.
“You see the program and
we had five medalists this
weekend so you know what
you’re teaching them is the
right thing,” Gaylord coach
Jerry LaJoie said. “Even the
two kids that lost wrestled
really well. It’s extremely
gratifying and we had a lot of
support down there. Our
principal was there, our
superintendent was there to
watch the boys, and that
meant a lot to us. The boys
represented Gaylord really
well.”
Dominic LaJoie entered
the tournament ranked
fourth at 103, while Roberts
was third.
LaJoie opened with a 17-6
major decision over 10th-
ranked Andrew Flick of Niles;
then defeated fifth-ranked
Brendan Ladd of Ortonville-
Brandon, 6-5, to reach the
semifinals.
LaJoie pinned Tecumseh’s
Ricky Azelton in 1 minute, 7
seconds, in the semis.
Azelton was ranked second
and was one of two seniors in
the 16-wrestler weight class.
Roberts of Fowlerville was
the other.
Roberts knocked off top-
ranked Michael Higley of
Edwardsburg in the other
semifinal, setting up the
highly anticipated rematch
between LaJoie and Roberts
in the final.
That’s when LaJoie
employed the lessons he
learned in losing just two
weeks prior to Roberts. He
jumped to a 7-0 lead, then
fought off a furious Roberts
rally in the third period.
“He couldn’t look ahead
because he had to start off
with the 10th-ranked kid in
the state, then he had the No.
5 in the quarters, and then in
the semis he had the No. 2-
ranked kid,” said Jerry LaJoie,
Dominic’s coach and father.
“He had to take it match by
match.”
Coach LaJoie said the key
was that Dominic was more
aggressive and attacked at a
higher point, negating the
advantage Roberts, a nation-
al Greco Roman champion,
had displayed when the two
met in the regional final.
“He doesn’t like to lose so
when he loses he figures out
what went wrong and he
fixes it,” coach LaJoie said of
his son. “He’s a mentally
strong kid.”
And, a state champion who
one day could join an exclu-
sive group of Michigan
wrestlers to win four individ-
ual state titles. Less than 20
are on that list.
But that’s a conversation
for the wrestling room, not
the dinner table.
“I was extremely proud of
him,” coach LaJoie said. “I’m
the coach in the room, but at
home I’m the dad. I try to
separate the two. We don’t
talk much wrestling at
home.”
Martin, a sophomore who
entered the tournament
ranked ninth, opened by pin-
ning Taylor Rambin of Byron
Center in 3:33, then scored a
9-6 win over Nino Bastianelli
of Marysville to reach the
semifinals.
Bryan LaVearn of
Ortonville-Brandon, who is
ranked fifth, pinned Martin
in 2:24, dropping Martin into
the wrestlebacks where he
pinned third-ranked Judah
Caballero of New Boston
Huron in 3:08 for a spot in
the third-place match.
Second-ranked Ian Parker
of St. Johns defeated Martin,
13-11, in that match. Martin
finished 46-7.
Trenton Lashuay, also
wrestling at 112, dropped a 4-
3 decision to sixth-ranked
Dylan Wilkins of Sparta in his
opening bout, then came
back to pin Mike Bergmooger
of Carleton Airport in 2:28,
beat seventh-ranked Aaron
Parr-Besemer of Berkley, 5-3;
lost to Caballero of New
Boston Huron, 4-2; then took
the seventh-place match
with a 6-4 decision over
Bastianelli of Marysville.
Trenton Lashuay, a fresh-
man who was ranked 10th,
finished 48-7.
Gregory, who was ranked
third, opened the tourna-
ment with a 4-2 victory over
seventh-ranked Derek
Desloover of Yale before
falling on a 13-10 decision to
second-ranked Garrett
Stehley of Lowell.
Gregory rebounded to beat
ninth-ranked Deion Copley
of New Boston Huron, 6-4,
and then pinned eighth-
ranked Cody Cousins of
Vicksburg in 4:29. Gregory
then dropped a 6-1 decision
to fifth-ranked Diallo
Matsimela of Dearborn
Heights Annapolis, and then
scored a 10-2 major decision
over Desloover in the fifth-
place match.
Foster, who was ranked
fourth, was pinned in 5:51 in
his opening bout by sixth-
* Onaway junior Joe 'Choo-Choo' Traynham captured the D-4
state wrestling title at 112 pounds at The Palace.

LaJoie Takes State
Continued...
By Mike Dunn
CENTRAL LAKE – Give
Bellaire credit. The Eagles
faced the very tough task of
outscoring a young-but-
savvy St. Mary girls basket-
ball squad on Friday, Feb. 28,
in the Class D district title
game at Central Lake.
The two state-ranked
teams faced off twice during
the regular season in Ski
Valley games, with each tak-
ing a win. The much-antici-
pated rubber match between
the Eagles and Snowbirds
would be played at a neutral
location with the district title
on the line and the opportu-
nity to keep the season alive
and advance to the regional
tournament at Buckley.
The resilient Eagles found
a way to beat stubborn St.
Mary a second time, earning
a well-deserved 44-32 deci-
sion.
The path to victory was
paved through intense, in-
your-defense against St.
Mary’s explosive senior
guard Kari Borowiak. The
Eagles haunted, hounded
and harassed Kari all night
long, not allowing her an
inch of free space. It was a
testimony to Kari’s lethal effi-
ciency from the floor and her
impact on her team that
Bellaire devoted so much of
its energy in keeping her
from getting open looks at
the basket.
The tactic was effective as
the Eagles were able to limit
the prolific scoring senior to
just four points. The last time
Kari was contained that
effectively was in last year’s
Class D quarterfinal loss to
Climax-Scotts.
The painful loss notwith-
standing, the St. Mary girls of
coach Dan Smith still com-
pleted another incredible
season with an outstanding
19-3 record. The Snowbirds
won the Ski Valley title out-
right this year.
The Snowbirds wanted
badly to make another long
playoff run in the final year
for Borowiak and fellow
hardworking senior Caylee
Lawnichak but it didn’t hap-
pen because of Bellaire.
Long-armed sophomore
center Bekah Myler, who
teamed with Borowiak to
form a potent inside-out
punch the past two seasons,
put 21 points on the board to
lead the Snowbirds.
McKenna Roberts and
Borowiak each scored four
and freshman Gabby Schultz
scored three.
Hard-nosed sophomore
Georgi Nowicki was unable
to play because of an injury
sustained in the victory over
Central Lake and McKenna
started in her place. Roberts
battled hard under the
boards, grabbing 11 a game-
high 11 rebounds.
Senior Madalyn Balon
scored 20 to pace Bellaire,
which went into the regional
tournament with a 19-3
record.
Bellaire led 17-16 at the
half and 28-25 going into the
fourth quarter.
Borowiak, who will contin-
ue her career on the hard-
wood at Concordia
University of Ann Arbor
starting next year, departs as
one of the top players ever to
come through the storied St.
Mary program. She has her
sneakers all over the
Snowbird record book in
terms of scoring but she was
much more than just a scor-
er.
Kari was a complete player,
the kind who made everyone
around her better. She con-
tributed in game after game
as a defender, a ball handler,
a passer and a rebounder.
She averaged more than 19
points a game in her senior
season and leaves school as
the second all-time leading
scorer with 1,438 points.
Bellaire proves its mettle with hard-fought victory
over talented St. Mary; Borowiak ends stellar prep
hardwood career

Lapeer West, then came back
to beat Gavin Miedema of
Hudsonville Unity Christian,

McCrate of Tecumseh in 45
seconds.
Foster then lost to
Desloover, 4-2, and defeated
Cousins on a pin in 3:21 in
the seventh-place match.
Both Foster and Gregory
are sophomores. Gregory fin-
ished the year 49-4, while
Foster went 43-8.
Seth Lashuay dropped a
10-6 decision to eventual
runner-up seventh-ranked
Patrick Blommel of
Stevensville Lakeshore in his
opening bout, then rebound-
ed with a 7-5 win over third-
ranked Nick Dunlap of
Marysville. Lashuay then
dropped a 12-0 major deci-
sion to 10th-ranked Jon
Wellman of New Boston
Huron, ending his senior sea-
son at 40-10.
Heinz, a junior, lost 9-2 to
eventual runner-up Collin
Lieber of Croswell-Lexington
in his opening match, then
was eliminated by 10th-
ranked Noah Hall of Niles on
a 2-1 decision. Heinz finished
37-16.

The name of the game in
March is survive and
advance. The Mio boys' bas-
ketball team did just that
Monday night with its 71-50
win over Whittemore-
Prescott in the class 'C' dis-
trict at Oscoda, but that
doesn't mean Mio head
coach Dennis Kann was
happy with how the night
went.
“I thought we played poor-
ly,” Kann said after the game.
“We missed a lot of opportu-
nities in transition and some
second chance points on
rebounds that we normally
don't miss.”
The Thunderbolts had
topped W-P 61-29 back in
their first meeting on Jan. 23,
so Monday night's contest
came as a bit of a surprise as
the Cardinals (7-11) hung
around within striking dis-
tance most of the night.
“Just to be in the game in
the second half against them
and only down 11, was
great,” W-P head coach
Reuben Edwards said. “The
guys have come a long way,
the first game against them it
was over in the first half.”
Bryce DaGrammont had a
pair of early fast break bas-
kets to give the Thunderbolts
a 5-0 lead but baskets by W-
P's Jose Rodriguez and Jens
Gillings kept the Cardinals
within 7-4.
Ben Lubitz added two free
throws and Micah Thomey
drilled a three pointer to
make it 12-4, though Gillings
sank a turn-around jumper
and drove to the lane for
another basket on W-P's next
trip to close the gap to 12-8.
DaGrammont and Bryson
Devers made a combined
four free throws in the final
minute of the first quarter,
but in between those Gillings
hit a 16-footer from the right
side of the court to help W-P
stay within 16-10 after one.
“Whittemore played hard
and physical,” Kann said.
“We have to score some more
baskets than we did in the
first quarter. We had some
fast break opportunities and
we didn't capitalize on any of
them.”
Mio started the second
quarter on a 12-2 run, started
by a basket by Lubitz and
capped off by a three-pointer
by Josh Fox that made it 28-
12.
Rodriguez did his best to
keep W-P in the game, hitting
a two pointer to end the run
at 28-14 and later hit a three
that made it 32-17.
Charles Auten sank a three
for Mio though, putting it
ahead 37-19 late in the half,
Aaron Georgieff made two
free throws and
DaGrammont had a put-
back at the buzzer to give the
Bolts a 41-24 cushion at the
half.
Mio took a 48-31 lead on a
Lubitz three pointer in the
third quarter and led by as
much as 53-35 until the
Cards closed the third on a 7-
3 run to make it 56-42 enter-
ing the fourth.
W-P twice got to within 11
points in the fourth quarter,
the first on a Rodriguez three
pointer that made it 56-45
and a second time on two
free throws by Gillings that
made it 58-47. On W-P's next
possession, Rodriguez had a
three rim out that would
have brought the Cards with-
in eight.
“Rodriguez and Gillings
made big shots all night,”
Edwards said. “They carried
the load for us all season and
did a good job of it.
Rodriguez did a good job on
Lubitz on defense and then
he had to come down and
produce on the offensive
end, and that's tough. Those
two have been here and
played so hard, they're such
great kids and had great
careers here. I'm definitely
going to miss them.”
After Rodriguez's miss,
Mio began to pull away, get-
ting a free throw by Lubitz to
make it 59-47, with Lubitz
adding a lay-in off a pass
from Devers to make it 61-47
and Devers added two chari-
ty shots to make it 63-47.
“They were physical, Mio is
just a good team and made
plays more than we did,”
Edwards said. “I told the guys
to keep their heads up, they
did a very good job.”
Gillings hit two free throws
for the Cards and Chase
Ostrander split a pair of char-
ity shots for W-P but it wasn't
enough to make a run on
Mio, as three free throws by
Georgieff, a three by Auten
and and a final fast break
basket by Georgieff closed
out the game at 71-50.
“For sure, the win feels
good,” Kann said. “It's always
good to have a win, especial-
ly in districts. We hadn't
played in a week because of
snow days so I know we'd be
a little rusty, we just looked a
little lethargic.”
The Thunderbolts were led
by Thomey with 22 points, six
rebounds, six assists and six
steals, Lubitz had 15 points
and six rebounds, Georgieff
had nine points, 14 rebounds
and four steals, Dagrammont
had eight points and three
boards, Devers put in seven
points along with two steals
and two assists, Auten scored
six, Fox had three points and
Trenton Vaughn had one
point and two rebounds.
Mio (17-2) played in the
district semi-finals on
Wednesday against host
Oscoda with a chance to play
in Friday's final against the
winner of Houghton Lake or
Alcona. Friday's winner will
play in the Traverse City St.
Francis regional on Monday.
“We beat Oscoda twice this
year but it's districts so
they'll be up for us,” Kann
said. “If we play like we did
tonight it will be a ball game.”

LINCOLN – The Mio girls
put up a tough fight in their
Class C district semifinal
clash with Houghton Lake
on Wednesday, Feb. 26, but
in the end the Bobcats were
able to hold on for a 49-41
victory.
Mio ended its season with
a 9-10 record.
The Thunderbolts trailed
16-6 at halftime but
trimmed the Houghton Lake
lead to just five points, 36-
31, heading into the fourth
quarter. The long-range mis-
siles of Jordyn Smith, Carah
Curtis and Jalen DeFlorio
fueled the comeback.
DeFlorio penetrated
through the paint and kissed
one off the glass early in the
fourth quarter to trim the
lead to a single point, 36-35,
but that was as close as the
Thunderbolts would get in
this one. Houghton Lake
pulled away over the final
four minutes of the contest,
sinking a high percentage of
free throws to keep Mio at
bay.
DeFlorio capped her out-
standing prep hardwood
career for the Bolts with a
fine showing, tickling the
twine for 19 points. Shelby
Booth struck for six points
and Leslie Asman launched
five through the iron.
Hailee Akin and Sarah
Garrett each tallied 16 for
Houghton Lake.

WATERFORD – Gaylord
senior Alysha Sobeck and
Petoskey senior Riley
Calabrese both competed in
the Div. 2 individual singles
state meet held Saturday at
the Century Lanes in
Waterford.
Sobeck and Calabrese both
fared well. Alysha finished in
13th place overall in the girls’
competition and Riley fin-
ished in 14th place overall in
the boys’ meet. They both
advanced to the prestigious
Round of 16 Tournament to
decide the individual state
champion.
Alysha, remaining cool
and calm in spite of the high-
stake atmosphere, amassed a
six-game total of 1,140 pins
for a healthy average score of
190 to earn her 13th-plce fin-
ish. She hit high scores of
213, 204 and 202.
In the Round of 16, she was
paired with unstoppable
Lauren McKowen of
Tecumseh, who not only
edged Alysha in their head-
to-head showing but went on
to capture the D-2 individual
state title.
“Cool Hand” Calabrese
represented the Northmen
very well, knocking down
1,216 pins in six games for an
eye-popping average score of
203. His high scores were
236, 225 and 216. Riley’s rolls
were good for 14th place
against the best D-2 bowlers
in the state.
Calabrese was paired with
Jared Edgarton of Richland
Gull Lake and was eliminated
in the first round.

GAYLORD – Gaylord was
definitely the underdog play-
ing at home against talented
Big North Conference rival
Traverse City West on
Monday in the Class A dis-
trict tournament opener. The
Blue Devils certainly didn’t
play like it, though, giving the
stunned Titans a fierce fight
for 32 minutes.
Gaylord, which came into
the game with a 3-17 log,
used a relentless defense and
timely shooting to build a 30-
21 halftime lead over the
stunned Titans, who had
beaten Gaylord twice during
the regular season.
The determined Titans ral-
lied behind a blanketing full-
court press and the locked-in
long-range missiles of Tristan
Roman in the third quarter,
however, to come from
behind and take a lead they
would not relinquish on the
way to a hard-fought 63-51
victory.
With the win, West (10-10)
advanced to the district
semifinals against Sault Ste.
Marie. Gaylord closed out a
tough season with a 3-18
record.
Junior wing Collin Watters
poured in 15 points to pace
the Blue Devils’ balanced
scoring charts and he pulled
down eight rebounds. Zach
Pasternak, one of Gaylord’s
three seniors, produced 13
points from the backcourt
with his usual blue-collar
effort, and versatile junior
guard Steven Fitzek fired in
10 points to go with eight
boards and three assists.
Gaylord coach Tim
O’Rourke also noted the
physical presence of super-
tough sophomore Josh
DeGraw inside.
Alex Scott tallied 27 to lead
the Titans and Roman rocked
the iron to score 14.
Those who played their
final game for Gaylord
included the hardworking
reserves Leland Huey and Ty
Coonrod along with the
twine-finding Pasternak.
Those on the varsity
returning for the Blue Devils
include juniors Marcus
O’Rourke, Sam Rinke, Blayne
Baker, Watters and Fitzek
along with sophomores
Michael Dipzinski, Jake
Freeman, Jack Korte and
DeGraw.

CHARLEVOIX – The
Johannesburg-Lewiston girls
of coach Heather Huff saw a
productive season come to
an early end in the playoffs
on Wednesday, Feb. 26, in a
54-45 defeat to a very good
Elk Rapids team in the Class
C district semifinals at
Charlevoix.
The up-tempo, high-
octane Cardinals, a top-tier
program year after year
under Huff’s tutelage, fin-
ished the 2013-14 season
with a 15-5 record.
The Cardinals took a 39-37
lead into the fourth quarter
of the semifinal clash but
went cold from the floor
could not contain the Elks’
late surge.
Maddie Showerman
capped her fine sophomore
campaign, her second as a
varsity starter, with another
good showing, pouring in a
team-high 16 points. She also
showed up big defensively,
earning six steals.
Steady senior wing
Brittany Cherwinski churned
the nets for nine points in the
final game of her notable
four-year varsity career.
Rachel Hintz hit for 25
points and pulled down 17
rebounds with a dominating
performance for the Elks and
Bridget Hintz scored 13.
Elk Rapids, which
improved to 15-7, went on to
face Charlevoix in the district
finals and dropped a 66-61
decision to the Rayders, who
advanced to the Class C
regional tournament at
Sanford Meridian and a
semifinal clash against
McBain played on Tuesday,
March 4.
Seven J-L seniors played
their last game for the
Cardinals and were members
of the varsity during a time
when the team fared quite
well.
Along with Cherwinski,
those who wore the Cardinal
basketball uniform for the
final time included Hailey
Weaver, Julia Nieman,
Shannon Kievit, McKenzie
Mathewson, Sydney
McKenney and Abbie May.

GAYLORD – The Gaylord JV
girls basketball team of
coach Shelly Curtis had
another outstanding season,
posting a sparkling10-2 mark
in the rugged Big North and
going 17-3 all-around.
The young Blue Devils had
lots of dramatic finishes
along the way, coming from
behind several times to claim
wins, such as the games with
Alpena and T.C. West where
the girls were down 12 points
and rallied in the fourth
quarter to win each time.
There was also the “Delaney
Victory Dance” game against
the Sault where Gaylord
came from behind literally in
the final second.
“We had some very close
games this year,” Curtis said.
“We almost always found a
way to come back and win
and that says a lot about the
character of the girls. These
girls play with a ton of heart
and showed a great desire to
succeed on the court.”
Coach Curtis brought up
two freshmen to the team
this year, Casey Korte and
Adrienne Edwards, and they
were both starters and
impact players. Casey had
the “C-Ko” flowing from the
floor game after game as she
ultimately led the Blue Devils
in scoring. She was more
than a one-dimensional
player, though. She was also
the team’s leading rebounder
and she covered the floor like
a fresh coat of wax defensive-
ly, leading the team in steals.
“Casey is one of the most
athletic kids I've ever
coached,” Shelly reported.
Adrienne was the starting
point guard and an efficient,
effective floor general. She
also covered opposing ball
handlers like a second coat of
skin.
“Adrienne can handle the
ball, make smart decisions,
and shoot the three quite
well,” Shelly said. “She’s also
my best defender. If we ever
needed to shut someone
down, we put Adrienne on
her.”
Sophomore team captain
Mallory Marshall was anoth-
er starter, not just a solid,
productive player but also a
great leader and role model.
“You can always count on
Mallory to come up with
some huge plays at the end of
the game to assure us a victo-
ry; she was also one of my
top scorers,” Shelly said.
Super hustler Delaney
Eckstein was also a team cap-
tain and a starter. Delaney
delivered in the clutch, too,
making the amazing game-
winning basket in one of
Gaylord’s most sensational
wins this season against the
Sault.
“Delaney’s such a hustler
and she's really has devel-
oped her shot,” Shelly said.
“She scored the winning
bucket against the Sault with
1 second remaining on the
clock for the win!”
Maddie Sides, another key
starter and clutch player for
the young Blue Devils of
coach Curtis, displayed a
“nice touch” around the bas-
ket and exhibited a good bas-
ketball IQ, playing very smart
defense.
Brianna Hartley, who
shared a starting spot, was a
physical force inside for the
young Blue Devils. The long-
armed sophomore did a
great job this year rebound-
ing and executing some of
her post moves, Shelly
reported.
Ariveara Piehl provided
quality minutes off the
bench. One highlight this
season was her high-point
game against Cadillac when
she put 10 on the board.
Ariveara is also “really tough
under the basket,” Shelly
said.
Arica Alread gave Gaylord
tons of energy off the bench,
always playing with the
throttle thrust to full speed
ahead.
“Arica is always hustling
and plays great defense,”
Shelly reported. “She's such
an athletic kid and really
developed her ball-handling
skills.”
Hardworking Shelby
Curtiss really came along this
year, improving in every facet
of the game while finding
ways to contribute to the
success of the team in prac-
tice sessions and during the
games, providing great min-
utes on the court.
Brice Hervela started late
with the team this year com-
ing off an injury but she
always brought the juice with
her to the floor, playing with
plenty of energy. She was also
an encouragement to the
team and always had a smile
on her face!
“It was such a pleasure
coaching these girls,” Curtis
said. “It was so thrilling to
win so many close games and
the bond that it created with
the girls was awesome to see.
“I'm so proud of this team
and what they've accom-
plished, especially being at
the top of the big North
Conference. I’m very much
looking forward to seeing
what they will accomplish at
the varsity level.”
Young Blue Devils of Shelly
Curtis won Big North
Conference title and finished
with sparkling 17-3 record

AUBURN HILLS – There
was a train wreck in the 112-
pound weight division of the
Division 4 state wrestling
finals held over the weekend
at The Palace of Auburn Hills.
The engineer was Onaway
junior Joe “Choo-Choo”
Traynham. The remarkably,
tough, resilient Cardinal
grappler went into the state
tournament with the best
overall record of all the 112
combatants in the state meet
and proved his success on
the mats was no fluke as he
flattened his first two oppo-
nents with early pins, earned
a thrilling 10-7 decision over
Tyler Roberts of Hudson in
the semifinals in what would
be his toughest match, and
then powered his way to a 16-
4 major decision over junior
Roddy Hamdan of Hudson in
the state championship
match.
Traynham finished his his-
tory-making season with an
outstanding 43-4 record.
Two other area grapplers
also achieved All-State hon-
ors in the D-4 state meet held
on Thursday through
Saturday at The Palace.
Traynham’s sophomore
teammate Isaac “Ice Man”
Nave took fifth place at 119
pounds and Mio junior
Patrick Stephens took sixth
place at 103 pounds.
Onaway senior Casey
Watson, the C.W. Slammer,
came within one victory of
earning All-State honors at
189 pounds but lost a razor-
thin decision to Carl Morgan
of Hart, who finished in sixth
place.
Seniors Michael “Man
Plow” Meadows (130) and
Keegan Richardson (285) of
Mancelona and senior
Colton McGregor (215) of
Mio also came within one
victory of achieving All-State.
Sophomore Scott Blamer
(152) of Mio battled valiantly
while losing two tough
matches.
Traynham, who also
earned district and regional
titles en route to the state
meet, took care of business in
a big way at The Palace. He
pinned Maher Ramirez of
Bangor in 2:44 in the first-
round match before employ-
ing the J-Tray takedown
maneuver to take out Marcus
Richardson of Addison in just
19 seconds in the quarterfi-
nals.
In the semifinal clash with
Roberts of Hudson,
Traynham used a third-peri-
od reversal and takedown to
help secure the hard-fought
10-7 decision win. In the
finals against Hamdan of
Hudson, the tenacious
Traynham was a takedown
machine, putting his oppo-
nent on the mat early and
often en route to winning the
state title.
Nave (20-8) won his first
two matches in the 119
weight class and went 3-2 on
the day. In the bout to settle
who would finish in fifth
place, the Ice Man rallied to
out-duel rugged Jason
Richardson of Addison by a
9-7 count.
Stephens (43-8) advanced
to the 103 semifinals with a
razor-thin 1-0 decision over
rugged Mason Rife of
Webberville in a fiercely con-
tested match and a second-
period pin over Frankie
Najera of Adrian-Madison.
He lost a decision to Corey
Agens of Hesperia, who
would finish as runner-up. In
the battle for fifth place,
Stephens lost a close deci-
sion to Connor Krupp of New
Lothrup.
Watson (25-6) lost his
matches to fifth-place finish-
er Cody Mikel of Schoolcraft
and Morgan of Hart, who
came in sixth.
Meadows (46-8) rebound-
ed from his narrow opening-
round loss to Kahle Scheenks
of Bronson to defeat Robert
Standick of Sand Creek and
move to within one win of
assuring an All-State finish.
In the blood match, though,
Meadows lost a very close
decision to familiar foe
Matthew Elliott of Forest
Area.
Richardson (23-9) started
things off with a hard-fought
5-3 decision over Logan
Kennedy of Decatur, who
would battle back through
the consolation round to fin-
ish in seventh place. Keegan
battled gamely in defeats to
sixth-place finisher Tom
Devos of Kent City in the
quarterfinals and fourth-
place finisher Cory
Ketterheinrich of Niles
Brandywine.
McGregor (27-17) earned
an upset win over highly
regarded Michael Shaver of
Mayville in the opening
round, putting Shaver to the
mat in the first period. Mac
eventually lost to fifth-place
finisher Weston DeHaven of
Watervliet and eighth-place
finisher Adam Lammers of
Springport.
Blamer (35-18) gained
invaluable experience at
state as a sophomore. In his
opening bout, he extended
highly regarded Ali Rashad of
Highland Park Renaissance
Academy before losing a
decision. Rashad went to fin-
ish as runner-up at 152. In his
second bout, Blamer lost to
senior Andrew Grady of
Springport, who finished in
eighth place.

CADILLAC – They
scrapped and clawed and
scrapped and clawed some
more.
But in the end, a very good
Cadillac team, foul trouble
and illness simply proved too
much for the Cheboygan
High School girls basketball
team to overcome.
The Chiefs fell to the
Vikings, 53-39, last Friday in
a Class B district champi-
onship game, ending the
Chiefs’ season at 14-9.
While disappointed in the
outcome, Cheboygan coach
Jason Purcell can look ahead
to what could be a very
promising 2014-15 season
when four starters will
return.
“Especially when you con-
sider this team started the
year 0-3,” said Purcell, who
completed his 17th season in
charge of the program. “It
took a great deal of compo-
sure on their part and a posi-
tive attitude on their part to
battle back from that and
have a very, very good sea-
son. Our outlook for next
season is huge.
“In 2004, that was the year
before we went to the (state)
Final Four for the first time,
we had one senior and we got
beat by Houghton Lake in a
district final in our own gym.
“Those (returning) girls
rallied around that loss and
they got to work as soon as
softball and track were done
and they worked their tails
off that summer.
“You come back with a
group of seniors who have a
sense of urgency that hey, It’s
now or never. We’re very
much looking forward to
next year and looking for-
ward to getting in the gym
and working with this group
in the offseason.”
It was the first district
championship in 12 years for
Cadillac, which advanced to
the regional at Gaylord where
it was scheduled to play
Menominee in a semifinal
game on Tuesday. The
Vikings also claimed the Big
North Conference title this
season, their first in a dozen
years.
Sparta and Manistee com-
prise the other half of the
regional bracket. The final is
scheduled for Thursday.
The Chiefs played without
a backup point guard in their
district final against the
Vikings, while starting signal-
caller Bridget Blaskowski
played the entire week of the
district tournament – a 51-37
win over Roscommon and a
60-37 victory over Grayling
earned the Chiefs a date with
Cadillac in the final -- with an
illness.
Finding themselves in a 9-
0 hole to start the game,
Cheboygan twice battled
back to cut its deficit to one,
the second time at 17-16.
But Cadillac closed the half
with a 6-0 run and then
Blaskowski picked up her
fourth foul early in the third
quarter.
“Not to say that was every-
thing because we certainly
could have played better,”
Purcell said. “We felt the key
going into the game was that
we had to handle Cadillac’s
press.
“We missed seven 2-foot-
ers and dropped four other
(passes) that would have
been layup opportunities as
well. From our perspective
that was huge. You’ve got no
ability to make a run when
you do that, when you’re
missing those puppies.
“But you’ve obviously got
to tip your hat to Cadillac.”
Carolyn Clark led the
Chiefs with seven points.
Just one starter, Mariah
Kane, graduates and starters
Autumn Hudak, Macey
Charboneu, Blaskowski and
Brooke Hancock return next
season.
Four of five starters will return for Chiefs

TRAVERSE CITY — The
Petoskey boys saw their sea-
son end in a heartbreaking
fashion on Monday in the
Class A district tournament
opener at Traverse City
Central. The host Trojans
prevailed by a single point,
50-49, to advance to the dis-
trict semifinals and bring an
abrupt end to Petoskey’s sea-
son.
Petoskey, which had beat-
en Central twice during the
regular season, held the early
lead but could not contain
the Trojans’ furious second-
half comeback. The
Northmen closed out the
campaign with a 14-7 record.
Central (7-14) advanced to
face high-powered Alpena
(19-1) in the next round on
Wednesday, March 5.
The good news for the
Northmen of coach Dennis
Starkey is that they’re still
quite young with their best
days ahead. Even with the
disappointing upset loss in
the district opener, the boys
gained a great deal of valu-
able experience this season
and will be poised to pick up
where they left off when
practice starts again next fall.
Petoskey held a 49-47 lead
with 41 seconds remaining in
regulation Monday after
strong-armed senior Joe
LeBlanc made a trip to the
charity stripe.
The Trojans staged an
improbable rally, however,
when Max Knoblock hit one
free throw to make it a 49-48
game and then Austin
Podsaid drained two free
throws to put Central ahead
50-49 with less than 10 sec-
onds to go.
Petoskey had two chances
with the game clock winding
down to either draw a foul or
score what would have been
a game-winning basket but
the Trojans were up to the
task defensively.
Evan Whitmore waxed the
nets for a game-high 17
points to lead Petoskey in the
contest and LeBlanc put 16
on the board. Sweet-shooting
sophomore guard Aron Lee,
one of several promising
underclassmen returning for
Petoskey, launched eight
through the iron. Sophomore
Jason Bur scored four.
Rangy Central center
Jackson Schraymeyer paced
the victors with 11 points and
Knoblock added 10.
The three blue-collar sen-
iors who played their final
game for Petoskey on
Monday were Shea
Whitmore, Joe Crittenden
and LeBlanc.

GRAYLING - The Grayling
girl’s varsity basketball team
seemed poised for a possible
upset of Cheboygan in its dis-
trict tournament matchup
Wednesday, Feb. 26. But, the
Lady Vikes struggled in the
second half and fell, 60-37.
Cheboygan (13-8 overall)
could only managed a two-
point lead, 28-26, over
Grayling (5-15 overall) at
halftime, giving the Lady
Vikes hope of advancing in
district tournament play.
But, the Chiefs more than
made up for it in the second
half, dominating the Lady
Vikes, 13-7, in the third quar-
ter and 19-4 in the final stan-
za. That allowed Cheboygan
to move on, while it spelled
the end of the 2013-14 season
for Grayling.
Despite the loss, Samantha
Denno had a solid game for
the Lady Vikings with team-
high 12 points, 7 rebounds
and 5 steals. Cierra Prosser
also had a good all-round
performance against the
Chiefs with 10 points, 5
rebounds, 4 assists and 1
steal.
Other contributors for the
Lady Vikes were: Erica Umlor
with 8 points, 2 rebounds, 3
assists and 2 steals; Makayla
Cragg with 3 points, 9
rebounds, 1 assist and 1
blocked shot; Brittney
Nielson with 2 points, 4
rebounds and 1 assist; Emma
Prosser with 2 points and 1
rebound; Courtney Hatfield
with 5 assists and 1 steal; and
Rachel Money with 1
rebound, 2 assists and 1 steal.

Lady Vikes second-half struggles
result in district loss, 60-37

GAYLORD – The Gaylord
hockey team saw its 2013-14
season come to an end on
Thursday, Feb. 27, with a 10-2
defeat at the hands of high-
powered Cadillac in a
Division 3 pre-regional play-
off clash.
Cam Laug scored his sec-
ond goal of the season in the
first period and “Gatlin Gun”
Garrett Richardson recorded
his team-leading 17th goal in
the third period to account
for the Blue Devil scoring.
Gaylord displayed plenty
of heart, as it has all season,
but could not match the
depth or speed of the Vikings,
who continued a relentless
assault on the Blue Devil goal
throughout the mercy-short-
ened contest. Cadillac had 45
shots on net compared to
just 10 for Gaylord. In the
second period and the abbre-
viated third period, the visit-
ing Vikings really put the
pressure on, out-shooting
the Blue Devils by an amaz-
ing 32-4.
Five of Cadillac’s 10 goals
came on power plays.
Gaylord trailed just 2-1
after the first period but
things fell apart in the second
period when the Vikings
scored five times to go on top
7-1. When Cadillac’s Blake
Ford olit the scoring lamp in
the first minute of the third
period, the lead ballooned to
8-1 and the Vikings were
within one goal of enforcing
the mercy rule.
Richardson showed plenty
of grit and resilience at that
point, making a mid-ice steal
and converting it into an
unassisted goal to trim the
lead to 8-2 at the 6:01 mark. It
would be the final goal of the
season for the Blue Devils.
The Vikings would not be
denied on this night, howev-
er, scoring twice more in the
next three-and-a-half min-
utes to end the game at the
9:25 mark. Pat Briggs had a
hat trick for the visitors.
Jordan Adlam and Keenan
Kolarik each scored two.
Jack Ryan and Derek Adair
assisted on Laug’s goal.
Richardson completed a
stellar season for Gaylord
with 17 goals and nine assists
for 26 points. Jackon Deans
was the second leading scor-
er with 11 goals and eight
assists for 19 points.
Gaylord ended with a 1-21-
1 record.

CADILLAC — Cheboygan
faced the tall challenge of
traveling south to Cadillac on
Monday to take on a very tal-
ented Viking squad in a Class
B district opener. The young,
energetic Chiefs stayed right
with the home team through
the first half and much of the
third quarter before Cadillac
started to pull away.
Cadillac (14-6) earned a
66-48 decision to keep its
season alive and advance to
the semifinals at
Roscommon. Cheboygan
saw a promising season end
with a respectable 11-8
record. The Chiefs’ record is
even more impressive con-
sidering there were only two
seniors on the roster.
The game was tie at 30 at
the half and the Chiefs trailed
by just two points, 35-33,
midway through the third
quarter. Cadillac’s silky-
smooth senior guard Jalen
Brooks began to percolate at
that point, though, enabling
the Vikings to gradually gain
more ground on the score-
board.
By the end of the third
quarter, Cheboygan trailed
49-36 and the Chiefs were in
full comeback mode.
Derek Sturvist drained the
twine for a team-high 13
points for Cheboygan and
seniors Ben Pearson and
Luke Harrington each put 11
on the board in their final
game in a Chiefs’ uniform.
Pearson also pulled down six
rebounds. Zack Socha struck
for seven points and Tanner
Carr canned five.
Justin Liptak tallied 20 to
pace the Vikings. The ubiqui-
tous Brooks very nearly had a
triple-triple, generating 11
points, 10 boards and eight
assists.

GAYLORD – The Gaylord
Gators’ swim season official-
ly ended on Sunday, March 2,
with the State Qualifiers
competing at Saginaw Valley
State University.
The Gators compete in
state-wide league called the
Michigan Team Swim
League. There are hundreds
of teams throughout the
state with thousands of
young swimmers competing.
In order to compete in the
State Finals, swimmers must
achieve minimum times in
the events in which they
swim. Only about 10% of
league participants do well
enough during the regular
season to move on to
"States.”
Whether the young swim-
mers finish first or last, mere-
ly qualifying for this meet
places him or her in the 90th
percentile of all league swim-
mers in the state. It is a huge
accomplishment just to be
there. This being said, our
Gators were represented by
10 of our finest young swim-
mers.
Leading the girls team
again were the "Daughters of
Dolphins" Grace Warmbier
and Danielle Hope. Grace,
who is just 11 years old, had a
third, a fourth and fifth place
finishes in her individual
events while anchoring the
13-14 Freestyle Relay team to
a fourth-place finish.
Ashlynn Mullenberg,
Cameron Martella and Maizy
James were relay teammates
with Grace.
Danielle placed third and
fifth in her individual events
and helped the Relay Team of
Cameron Martella (again)
and sisters Katie and Allie
Rutkowski take fourth place
while setting a new Gator
record in the 200 yard med-
ley.
Matthew (Man Shark)
Makarewicz paced the boys
with two fourth-place times
and a second, knocking off
more than 4 seconds from his
previous best time in the 200
Individual Medley.
Colin Colberg took a solid
third in the 50-yard freestyle
while his brother Braedon
finished 13th, just a couple
seconds behind. Other state
qualifiers in the 90th per-
centile were Fayth Sanom in
two events, Zack Lauster in
the 50-yard freestyle and
Katie Rutkowski did well in
three individual events.
The Gators team is capably
coached by Leanne
Westerman and Jeremy
Amante.
GRAYLING - The Grayling
boy’s basketball team just
narrowly missed ending its
regular season with a win,
instead falling to visiting
Standish-Sterling by just a
basket, 79-77, in a non-con-
ference clash Thursday, Feb.
27.
The Vikings (11-9 overall)
trailed, 38-34, at halftime
and were still behind, 58-52,
entering the final eight min-
utes. But, Grayling contin-
ued to fight and nearly ral-
lied for the win by outgun-
ning the Panthers, 25-21, in
the fourth quarter.
"I was very proud of the
way that our kids fought
their way back into this
game after being down 71-
59 with 3:50 left in the
game," said Grayling head
coach Rich Moffit. "We had
a chance to win the game at
the end.
"The game had tourna-
ment intensity in it and this
should be a good game for
us going into district play
next week."
Justice Junttila led a quar-
tet of Vikings in double fig-
ures with 24 points, 14
rebounds and 3 steals. Tyler
McClanahan also nearly
had a double-double in 19
points, 2 rebounds, 9 steals
and 3 assists.
Carson Burmeister
chipped in 12 points, 3
rebounds, 1 steal and 1
assist in the loss, while Jake
Swander tallied 10 points, 4
rebounds and 4 assists on
the night.
Other contributors for
Grayling included: Michael
Branch with 6 points, 7
rebounds, 3 steals and 1
assist; Geoff Wilson with 2
points, 3 rebounds and 1
assist; Emmett Helsel with 2
points and 3 rebounds;
Scott Wakeley with 2 points;
Scout Tobin with 2 steals, 3
assists and 1 blocked shot;
Matt Burrell with 3
rebounds and 1 steal; and
Zane Pittman with 2
rebounds and 1 steal.
With the regular season
completed, the Vikings were
set to clash with Ogemaw
Heights in the opening
game of district tournament
action for the two teams
Wednesday, March 5. Tipoff
is set for 7 p.m.
"We improved a ton over
the course of the last week
of the season," Moffit
added. "We are starting a
new season with the tour-
ney coming and I am excit-
ed to see if we can defend
our fourth district title in a
row.
Grayling 62
Gaylord 45
A solid first half allowed
the host Vikings to cruise to
a 62-45 win over neighbor-
ing rival Gaylord on
Tuesday, Feb. 25.
Grayling dominated the
action in the non-confer-
ence hoops contest, out-
gunning the visiting Blue
Devils, 18-8, in the first
quarter and building a 39-23
advantage by intermission.
"I was very pleased with
our defensive intensity in
this game," Moffit said. "We
forced 39 turnovers - 22 in
the first half- and our energy
was top notch at the defen-
sive end of the court.
"Offensively, we moved
the ball well in transition
and scored some easy bas-
kets as a result," he added.
The second half was far
more even, with Grayling
putting up 23 points and
Gaylord hitting for 22
points.
Junttila paced the victori-
ous Vikings with 14 points, 8
rebounds and 1 steal.
McClanahan was the only
other Grayling cager to hit
for double figures with 12
points, 1 rebound, 5 steals
and 5 assists against the
Blue Devils.
Also contributing for the
Vikes were: Branch with 8
points, 7 rebounds, 1 steal
and 1 assist; Swander with 7
points, 2 rebounds, 1 steal
and 1 assist; Wakeley with 7
points, 2 rebounds and 1
steal; Tobin with 4 points, 1
steal, 1 assist and 1 blocked

MANCELONA – The
Charlevoix Rayders turned
up the defensive pressure on
Class “C” district tournament
host Mancelona in a first-
round matchup Monday,
March 3, and eventually bat-
tled its way to a 60-49 win
over the Ironmen.
The two hoops teams bat-
tled to a stalemate in the first
half, including the first quar-
ter that ended in an 11-11 tie
and game still knotted at
halftime, 25-25.
But, the Rayders (7-14
overall) used a 14-0 run early
in the third quarter to break
the game open and earn the
chance to advance in district
tournament action.
Charlevoix was slated to play
East Jordan in battle of Lake
Michigan Conference rivals
in the district semi-finals
Wednesday, March 5.
“I thought we played well
in the first half,” said
Mancelona head coach Rick
Duerksen. “In the third quar-
ter, they came at us with a
full-court press and we didn’t
respond well.
“They kind of wore us
down,” Duerksen added. “We
struggled getting the ball up
the court and into our
offense.”
While the Ironmen (15-5
overall) tried to prepare for
the Rayders’ press, Duerksen
said it was something his
players just didn’t see much
of during the regular season
or while battling for the Ski
Valley Conference crown.
“They do a good job with
it,” Duerksen said. “But, we
don’t get a lot of that kind of
press in the Ski Valley
Conference.”
Brandon Dingman led
Mancelona with 20 points
and 4 rebounds. Justin Spires
was the only other Ironmen
in double figures with 10
points, 4 rebounds and 1
steal.
Other contributors for the
Ironmen included: Logan
Borst with 5 rebounds and 1
steal; Jake Winstead with 3
assists and 1 steal; and
Griffin Borst with 2 assists
and 1 steal.
Mancelona 48
Johannesburg-Lewiston 32
The Ironmen ended their
regular season on a high note
Thursday, Feb. 27, beating
host Johannesburg-
Lewiston, 48-32.
Mancelona dominated the
game from the opening tip,
leading 12-1 at the end of the
first quarter and 19-5 at the
half.
“It was a game we were in
control of,” Duerksen said.
“They’re a younger team.”
It also helped that the
Ironmen were able to handle
the Cardinals’ triangle-and-
two defense.
“We did a nice job of
breaking it down and scor-
ing,” Duerksen added.
Dingman just missed a
double-double, tallying a
team-high 29 points, 9
rebounds and 1 steal in the
victory.
Also contributing in the
win were: Manson Munsell
and Trevor Straight-Caper
both with 4 points; Griffin
Borst with 3 points, 5
rebounds and 1 steal; Spires
with 3 points; and Logan
Borst with 5 assists and 2
steals.
Bellaire 53
Mancelona 42
The Ironmen felt short of
capturing at least a share of
the SVC title, falling to
Bellaire, 53-42, on Tuesday,
Feb. 25.
Mancelona (13-3 confer-
ence) needed to win the
rematch to hand Bellaire a
second conference loss.
And, early on, it seemed
like the Ironmen might do
just that while battling to a
12-9 lead at the end of the
opening stanza. However,
Bellaire rallied in the second
quarter to take a 26-23 lead at
halftime.
Bellaire went ahead for
good by dominating the third
period, 13-3. Still, Duerksen
said he felt his team had a
chance to win the game.
“We had a nice little rally
late and got it down to three
points,” he said. “But, then
we had to foul and their kids
hit their free throws.
“They’re a good basketball
team because they don’t
make many mistakes.”
Dingman tallied 16 points,
4 rebounds, 2 assists and 1
steal in the loss. Griffin Borst
also hit for double figures,
chipping in 15 points, 2
rebounds and 1 steal.
Other contributors for
Mancelona included: Chris
Schepperly with 4 points and
4 rebounds; Logan Borst with
4 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists
and 1 steal; and Spires with 3
rebounds.

Ten Gators compete in state finals
By Mike Dunn
WOLVERINE – Another
productive season for the
Onaway girls basketball
team came to an end on
Friday, Feb. 28, in the Class D
district finals at Wolverine.
The Cardinals, after defeat-
ing the host Wildcats by a 60-
31 margin in the semifinals,
faced powerful Posen in the
championship game and
lost 62-36.
It was the fifth consecutive
district title for Posen, which
advanced to the Class D
regional tournament at
Pellston.
The Onaway girls of coach
Marty Mix saw their season
end with an 11-11 mark. The
season was not without its
highlights, however, both
individually and collectively.
Lexi Szymoniak had a
whale of a season for the
Cardinals, generating one
double-double after another
with her strong play in the
paint and her accurate arc
from the perimeter.
Lexi fittingly earned her
final double-double in
Onaway’s final victory over
Wolverine, generating 13
points and 12 boards with
another dominating per-
formance. Erika Price, who
has also had a solid season
for the Mix’s Cardinals, also
showed up strong in the con-
test. Price was right with her
shots from the floor, earning
a game-high 21 points.

Energy Saving
Tips: Heat
Preservation
Compliments of
Ed Wohlfiel
Most homeowners aren’t aware that there are
dozens of ways their homes are leaking air. Air
leaks can drastically affect the home’s heating and
cooling system, forcing it to run more often than
it would if these leaks were plugged. By not
addressing and repairing these leaks, you can
realistically expect to pay higher utility bills all
year long.
But why shell out the money if you don’t have
to? As you’ll see, these problems are so easy to fix
that any do-it-yourselfer can finish the job over
the course of a weekend. In this article, we’ll
point out several ways your home might be leak-
ing air and how to fix them so you can preserve
the heat this winter.
Tools and Materials
Measuring tape
Utility knife
Duct tape
Foam insulation strips
Silicone caulk
Spray foam insulation
Water heater blanket insulation
Fiberglass pipe wrap
Electrical outlet insulators
Pipe sleeve insulation
Foil-backed bubble wrap
Safety Tip
Some of these jobs may place you in dusty or
dirty areas of the home or in areas where you will
come into contact with fiberglass insulation.
Always wear eye goggles, a quality air mask and
work gloves when in these areas. Also, if you are
working with fiberglass insulation, wearing long
pants and a long-sleeved shirt is recommended.
Step 1: Seal Outlet Boxes on Outside Walls
Receptacle and switch boxes that are installed
on outside walls have gaps which allow the heat
in your home to pass right through. Remove the
cover plates and slip a pre-cut electrical outlet
foam insulator over the receptacle or switch and
then re-install the cover plate. This will help seal
the box off and prevent air from escaping.
For even greater heat-loss prevention, fill in the
hole where the wires enter the outlet box with sil-
icone caulk before installing the insulator.
Step 2: Insulate Ventilation Ducts
If you have ventilation ducts in your attic, they
may be leaking air which will cause them to form
condensation. To prevent this, wrap the ventila-
tion ducts with thin batts of fiberglass insulation.
Step 3: Check Windows for Drafts
Leaky windows are perhaps the most common
culprit in the fight for heat preservation. Check
your windows for any drafty spots. If you find
your windows are drafty, remove the casing and
fill in all of the gaps with pieces of fiberglass insu-
lation. For very thin gaps, push the insulation in
the gap using a paint stirrer or some other thin,
long tool.
Step 4: Check the Pipes
Check your plumbing and gas lines for gaps,
especially where they are run through walls. Take
a can of spray foam insulation and fill in these
gaps. Be careful you don’t over-spray an area,
however; as this insulation expands tremendous-
ly.
Step 5: Insulate the Water Heater
If your water heater sits in a colder part of the
house, like the basement, the surrounding chilly
air could be sucking the heat out of the tank. To
maximize the tank’s heat preservation, you
should install a water heater insulation blanket
over it. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions
when installing the blanket kit in order to ensure
the best results.
Step 6: Wrap Exposed Pipes
Copper plumbing pipes can freeze easily in the
winter and sweat notoriously in the summer. To
help prevent this, wrap every inch of exposed
pipe with either pre-formed foam pipe sleeves or
pipe wrap insulation. Secure the insulation with
duct tape to prevent it from falling off.
Step 7: Seal and Wrap Duct-work
If you have exposed duct-work in your base-
ment or attic, wrap the ducts with paper-backed
insulation or foil-backed bubble wrap. Use spray
foam insulation to seal around the ducts wherev-
er they pass through ceilings, walls and the roof.
