Winning streak highlighted by no-hitter keeps Grafton baseball team in battle for North Shore runner-up honors

You can officially count the Grafton Black Hawks among the North Shore Conference’s baseball elite.

Although the Black Hawks will fall short of a championship, they started this week with a strong shot at runner-up honors in one of the state’s top summer leagues.

A five-game wining streak, highlighted by Nate Koehler’s no-hitter against Germantown on July 2, improved Grafton to 11-5 in NSC play, good for a share of second place with Homestead.


Both teams trailed Whitefish Bay (14-3), which has clinched the crown.


“We’re on a really good roll,” said Grafton coach Brian Durst, whose team downed Germantown, 7-1, on July 3 for its ninth win in the last 11 games.


“We’re getting great pitching, hitting and defense.”


The Black Hawks wasted no time handling Germantown for the second time in as many days.


Grafton pitcher Adam Lukas threw 4-2/3 innings of no-hit ball, flirting with a gem to match Koehler’s effort.


Lukas walked four but struck out three and had errorless defense behind him. By the time he gave way to reliever Jonathan Dobberfuhl in the sixth, the Black Hawks owned a 6-0 lead.


A three-run first inning got Grafton rolling, with Bryan Sternig and Nate Lukas singling home runs and Adam Lukas adding a sacrifice fly.


After Nate Lukas’ RBI single in the second inning made it 4-0, the Black Hawks tacked on two runs in the fifth. This time, Nate Lukas had an RBI double and scored on a single by his brother Adam.


For good measure, Brad Parsons stole home in the sixth. He doubled, moved to third base on a groundout and scored when Sternig was caught in a rundown between first and second.

High-scoring forward who led Grafton attack receives spot on conference 2nd team

After playing in the shadow of standout teammates the past two years, Grafton’s Zoie Bauer was poised for a breakout season in 2014.

The senior forward came through in solid fashion, emerging as the Black Hawks’ top offensive weapon and earning All-North Shore Conference recognition in the process.


“Zoie was our go-to player. Everything we tried to create offensively went through her,” Grafton coach Don Arnold said.


“She stepped up in a big way and became a real leader for us.”


Bauer, who received All-NSC second-team honors in a perennially tough league, led the Hawks with 21 goals and eight assists.


A four-year letterwinner, Bauer took her role as captain to heart in helping Grafton reach the WIAA Division 3 sectional finals. She had six goals in four playoff games for the 10-9-4 Hawks, who were 2-5 in the conference but went 5-2-1 in their last eight games overall.


Bauer was the only local player named to the top two teams in the coaches’ all-conference voting.


Receiving honorable mention were Grafton’s Sarah Coeur (defender) and Megan Otto (goalkeeper) and Port Washington’s Bridget Faldet (defender) and Allison Lessila (goalkeeper).

Port throttles East, 9-1, one day after shutout loss to West in conference play

One day after being shut down by one West Bend baseball foe, the Port Washington Pirates had their way with another last week.

Blending solid pitching and defense with steady scoring, coach Ryan Finnerty’s team bounced West Bend East, 9-1, on July 2.

Sophomore Kale Knaub pitched a complete game for the North Shore Conference win, giving the host Pirates a lift after they struggled in a loss to West Bend West.

Knaub scattered seven hits, struck out four and walked three. He didn’t allow a run until the seventh inning as Port improved its NSC record to 6-10.

“Kale pitched a gem, one of the best games I’ve seen this season,” Finnerty said.

“He threw strikes, and we made all the plays behind him.”

Knaub received plenty of offensive support as the Pirates scored in five of the first six innings against three pitchers. They grabbed a 2-0 lead in the first inning, made it 3-0 in the third and turned the game into a rout with a three-run fourth.
