HS: Marquette (WI) adds to storied legacy

Article Written by Sheldon Shealer
Published: November 10, 2020

Detroit Catholic Central (Mich.), Dodge City and Milwaukee Marquette (Wis.) boys completed undefeated seasons with state title victories on Saturday.

Marquette, which is poised for a FAB 50 Top 5 finish, defeated Hudson in the morning state semifinal and Arrowhead in the evening state final on Saturday, both by 3-0 margins. To take it a step further, Charlie Holton, Niguel Gonzalez and Valentin Sandoval scored in that order for Marquette in both matches. Marquette joined the WIAA in 2000 and now has won 15 state titles in 19 state tournament appearances.

Jack Leuker converted a pair of penalty kicks, the second coming with nine seconds left in the second overtime session, as Detroit Catholic Central edged Traverse City West, 2-1 in the Michigan Division I final Saturday. Traverse City West has finished as state runner-up in back-to-back seasons.

Alan Lopez scored twice, Erik Martinez netted a goal and Carlos Sanchez made a game-altering save that led to the shutout as Dodge City posted its second perfect season in four years (21-0 in 2016).
