A strong Homestead team was too much for the Port Washington gymnastics squad in a North Shore Conference dual meet on Jan. 9.

Winning every event, Homestead soared to a 136.605-114.425 victory.
Port was led by sophomore Dani O’Donnell, who placed second in the all-around with 30.55 points and was third in vault (8.25).

Teammate Kaylyn Garant was third in all-around (29.85).

The Pirates’ other event leaders were O’Donnell in uneven bars (7.525), Garant on balance beam (8.0) and Kristen Smith in floor exercise (7.925).

Port coach K.C. Didier singled out two of her gymnasts for posting season-best personal scores: Grant in floor exercise (7.6) and Smith in vault (7.35).

This week, the Pirates were scheduled to host Grafton/Cedarburg in another conference meet at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday and will participate in the Highlander Invitational at Homestead at 10 a.m. Saturday.

Sophomore’s 2nd-place finish at 285 pounds leads CG-Belgium on home mats

Sophomore Daniel Gjertson led the Cedar Grove-Belgium wrestling team at its own Rocket Scramble last Saturday, nearly winning a championship in the process.

Gjertson placed second in the 285-pound weight class by winning three of four matches, and the host Rockets finished seventh out of 13 teams with 541 points.

Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Trevor Peterson attributed Gjertson’s success to off-season training.

“He gained quite a bit of weight from last year, and he’s wrestling pretty tough,” Peterson said.

Sheboygan South won the team title with 692 points, and Oostburg was second with 674.

Rounding out the top six teams were Southern Door (654), Kenosha Christian Life (647), Valders (594) and Shiocton (560).

After receiving a first-round bye, Gjertson (17-8) pinned Deerfield’s Deviveh Pope in 2 minutes, 45 seconds, and Oostburg’s Jesse Rogers in 3:47.

Gjertson then lost to Markesan’s Matt Stensrud, 9-5, before pinning Valders’ Dustin Bergen in 4:33.

The Rockets got a third-place finish from sophomore Isaac Brockman (120 pounds) and fourths from freshman Abel Brockman (106) and senior Devon Villareal (138).

Competition in the tournament was tough, especially for Rockets who qualified for the gold division, where they faced top-seeded wrestlers.
