Grafton High School scored 115 points and Port Washington had 82.5 against larger schools in the North Shore Conference swim and dive meet last weekend at Whitefish Bay and Nicolet.

Whitefish Bay won with 497 points. Cedarburg had 452 and Homestead had 426.5.

Port got 33 points from three divers. Nate Kasdorf took second with 421.9 points. Dagan Daniels was eighth with 352.1 and Mason Deheck last of 12 with 238.2.

Diving coach Dennis Hubert said Kasdorf’s scores have improved each meet and Daniels added some new dives that are starting to pay off.

Grafton got 23 points on dives. Ben Nisowoner battled illness to post a personal-best 406.45 points, good for third, and Caden Starr was 10th with 289.5 points.

Michael O’Connor had Grafton’s best swim results. He was fourth in the 50-yard freestyle in  23.31 seconds and fifth in the 100 freestyle in 51.24 seconds. He dropped his times in both.

“He seems to rise to the occasion. The bigger the meet, the better he does,” coach Mark Minz said.

The 400 freestyle relay team of Jackson King, Todd O’Connor, Andrew Slagter and Michael O’Connor was 10th in 3 minutes, 47.44 seconds.

The 200 freestyle relay team of Lance Greicar, Ian Konzen, Braedyn King and Michael O’Connor was 11th in 1:44.02.

The 200 medley relay team of Gabriel Mietowski, Slagter, Jackson King and Todd O’Connor was 12th in 2:00.37.

Slagter was 12th in the 200 individual medley in 2:23.91.

Port’s best swim event was the 400 freestyle relay. The team of Shane McConahy, Nick Hadacek, Joe Huebner and Alex Sharbuno was ninth in 3:44.58.

The 200 freestyle relay team of the same four was 10th in a personal record 1:39.31.

Sharbuno was 11th in the 100 freestyle in a personal record 54.33 seconds and 13th in the 50 freestyle in 24.49 seconds.

McConahy was 12th in the 100 freestyle in 54.46 seconds.

Port and Grafton return to Plymouth for a Division 2 sectional meet, the same place they had the Small School State meet earlier this month. Minz said the familiarity will be an advantage.

“We know what the pool is like. We know what to expect,” he said.
