With most of last year’s starters back, Grafton set to step up in North Shore

When the Grafton Black Hawks open the 2014 baseball season against Shorewood this Friday, they’ll take the field without several familiar faces.

Gone will be standouts such as Alex Nennig and Brett Rasmussen, who have graduated, and Beau Benzschawel, who will forego his senior season to focus on training as a scholarship football player at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.


But those losses don’t mean the Hawks will be scrapping for talent this year. Their roster is loaded with varsity veterans, led by two senior co-captains coming off All-North Shore Conference honors in 2013.


Nate Lukas, whose pitching and hitting talent earned him first-team recognition as a utility player, will cap his prep career before heading to Truman State University in Missouri on a baseball scholarship.


Lukas batted .432 in NSC games and drove in 17 runs. As a pitcher, the left-hander worked a league-high 57 innings and had a 3-5 record and 2.70 earned-run average.


Infielder Choo Weisflog received All-NSC first-team accolades for the second straight season. He batted .415 in league play, scored 23 runs and had a .477 slugging percentage.


Lukas and Weisflog were also given honorable mention in all-state voting.


“We have big expectations with both of those players back,” said Brian Durst, who enters his 14th year as Grafton’s head coach.


“They’ve both proven themselves as great players and leaders, and we just want them to come back and have solid seasons again.”


The Hawks have plenty of additional talent in their bid to improve on a sixth-place, 8-10 record in the NSC last year.

Prolific scoring was the order of the day for the Port Washington boys’ track and field squad at the Bulldog True Team Invitational in Cedarburg on May 15.

Led by a pair of first-place finishes, the Pirates scored 844.5 points, good for third  out of seven teams.

The wins came from junior Zach Peer in the pole vault (12 feet) and senior Darius Will in the triple jump (a personal-best 43-0).

In other individual events, Port got second-place finishes from Josh Reisimer in the discus (145-0) and Marty Franzkowiak in the 200-meter dash (23.47 seconds) and thirds from Will in the long jump (19-6) and Quentin Lueck in the 100 hurdles (16.79).

In relay races, the Pirates got thirds from the 3,200 team of Brandon Moeller, Nick Gaulke, Eli Olson and Mason Purtell (8:51.96); the 800 team of Moeller, Mitchell Deniswicz, Jordan Clark and Jake Mueller (1:37.84); and the 1,600 team of Moeller, Olson, Will and Mueller (3:37.59).

Germantown piled up 1,333.5 points to win the team title at the meet, which featured an unusual scoring system. Points were awarded for every place finish in individual events and the top seven in relay events.

Cedarburg was second with 1,045 points.

“We used the meet as a tuneup for the upcoming conference meet and had a lot of athletes competing in some off events,” Port coach Mark Pasten said.

Pasten singled out Franzkowiak in the 200 dash, where “he looked really strong in the last 100 meters,” and Lueck’s determination in a hurdles race “run into a strong head wind.”

Ozaukee baseball team ready to improve in CLC with lineup of seasoned players

Youth was served on last year’s Ozaukee High School baseball team, and a solid payoff could be right around the corner this season.

After going 11-7 in the Central Lakeshore Conference without a senior player, coach Bob Kiefer believes the Warriors have enough veteran talent to make a serious run at the league title.

“We have a lot of returning players who have played varsity ball for three years. They’re not intimidated about playing at that level,” Kiefer said.

Ozaukee has five players back who received recognition in the coaches’ All-CLC voting last year, led by Jeremy Wichmann. The junior batted .482 in conference games on his way to first-team honors as an infielder and also received votes as a pitcher.

The Warriors’ other top players include seniors Lee Wysocki (outfield/pitcher), Joe Schauer (pitcher/outfield/first base) and Zac Beck (catcher) and junior Mitch McConnell (third base).

Wysocki (.327) and Beck (.333) were All-CLC second-team honorees, and Schauer (.250) and McConnell (.333) received honorable mention.

Ozaukee is also counting on steady play from juniors Jake Woolf (shortstop), Jared Bares (outfield/infielder) and Aaron Susen (outfield) and sophomore Mike Richter (outfield), as well as contributions from freshmen Jared Zausch (first base/pitcher) and Garrett Hoffmann (utility/pitcher).

“I really like this group of kids,” Kiefer said. “We don’t have a lot of depth, so we need to stay healthy, but there is a lot of talent.”
