With Michalowski out front, Port boys race to 3rd straight NSC cross-country title

Team titles have not come easily this fall for the Port Washington boys’ cross-country team.

But the Pirates made sure their first championship of season was one for the record books last Saturday when they raced to their third straight North Shore Conference crown.


Sparked by Nick Michalowski’s winning effort on a 5,000-meter course at Concordia University Wisconsin in Mequon, Port scored 48 points, well ahead of runner-up Whitefish Bay’s 72.


Germantown was third with 86 points, followed by Grafton (103), Cedarburg (110), Homestead (127), Nicolet (139) and Milwaukee Lutheran (214).


Michalowski, a senior, led a 58-runner field with a school-record time of 15 minutes, 53.69 seconds, breaking the previous mark set by Jason Marhal in 2012.


“Nick really looked dominant against a really good field,” said Pirates coach Mark Pasten, whose team became Port’s first to win three consecutive league titles in the sport.


“He took the lead after the first mile and never let up.”


Michalowski finished well ahead of Cedarburg junior Jack O’Neil, who was second in 16:12.27.


In addition to Michalowski’s victory, the Pirates used their depth and pack running to take control.

Responding to what coach Chris Zablocki called a “devastating” loss to Ozaukee the previous week, the Cedar Grove-Belgium football team wrapped up the regular season by blowing past Kohler/Sheboygan Lutheran/Christian, 49-21, in Central Lakeshore Conference play last Friday.

The Rockets, who improved to 7-2 overall, ran the ball with ease and piled up 395 yards on 47 carries, including 209 yards by Aaron Chier.


The senior tailback finished the regular season with 1,412 rushing yards, fourth-best among the state’s Division 5 players. His 26 touchdowns led the division and tied for third among all divisions.


Zablocki credited his offensive line for helping spur the offense.


“We got off the ball tremendously well Friday,” he said.


Zablocki said a steady wind forced both teams to ignore the passing game, as evidenced by the five total completions for both sides.


Chier was more than up to the challenge, getting the scoring started with a 34-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

Grafton soccer team clears first playoff hurdle by securing regional title with pair of shutout wins

When you’re a No. 1 seed playing at home against two underdogs, a soccer team is expected to take care of business.

For the Grafton Black Hawks, that business meant posting a pair of shutouts on the way to a WIAA Division 3 regional title.


Coach Don Arnold’s squad had little trouble living up to the advance billing when it blanked fourth-seeded Brown Deer, 4-0, in the championship game Oct. 16, two days after routing Kewaskum, 10-0.


“We knew we were the better team on paper, but you never know what’s going to happen in the playoffs,” Arnold said.


“We came out and played good soccer. It was a nice way to start the tournament.”


The Hawks, who will host second-seeded Milwaukee Lutheran in a sectional semifinal at 7 p.m. this Thursday, were never in trouble in their regional matches.


However, Brown Deer made things interesting by keeping Grafton off the board for the first 33 minutes.


At 33:06, Ben Lorge put the Hawks ahead for good when he scored with an assist from Andrew Hafemann.


With seconds left in the half, Jake Demerath made it 2-0 with an assist from Logan Block.


“Brown Deer played a little offsides trap, and we had to adjust to it,” Arnold said. “But we were able to create quite a few scoring opportunities.”


In the second period, Grafton wasted little time finding the net. Ben Bauman set up a Demerath goal at 48:16 to make it 3-0.
