It’s a big night for Gracyalnys, winning Cougars

Print Article

CLINTON, Wis. — Caleb Gracyalny helped his father John pick up his first career coaching win Tuesday against Big Foot.

Gracyalny, a junior, hit a contested, step-back trey with 39 seconds to go to tie the Chiefs, and Zach Krause hit a shot with .7 seconds left to secure a 63-61 win over the Chiefs.

John Gracyalny was coaching the Cougars for the first time as the interim head man after 14-year veteran coach Denny Morris resigned in December.

Big Foot held a seven-point lead with three minutes to play but couldn’t hold off Clinton’s late charge.

Fittingly, Gracyalny (five three-pointers) and Krause tied for team-high honors in scoring with 17 points each.

Beau Cary put in 27 points, while Logan Eischeid finished with 16 and Jackson Enz added 10.

The Cougars will be back in action Friday when they host Brodhead.

• PALMYRA-EAGLE 64, PARKVIEW 57: The Panthers, trailing 26-24 at halftime, controlled play in the second half to defeat the host Vikings Tuesday night.

Palmyra-Eagles was led by Morgan Carpenter, who scored 13, and Simon Carpenter, who scored all 11 of his points in the second half.

Parkview was led by Justin Bach’s 16 points, while Riley Carroll added 12.

• GIRLS BASKETBALL: BRODHEAD 49, TURNER 45: The Cardinals built a 27-15 halftime lead and withstood a late Turner charge to defeat the visiting Trojans.

Erin Nyhus led a balanced Brodhead scoring attack with 13 points. Five other Cardinals finished the game with at least four points, while Catherin Hazeltine had nine.

Turner was balanced as well, with Kenzie Krizmanich and Carson Nitz each scoring 12 while Makenna Lauterbach added 10.

• PARKVIEW 62, PALMYRA-EAGLE 41: The Vikings picked up a home win Tuesday night, using balanced scoring to gain their first Rock Valley Conference win of the season.

Kristine Mumm scored 12 points and Alex Thole put in 10 to lead Parkview. The Vikings led 32-24 at halftime before limiting the Panthers to 17 second-half points.
