A career-best performance by Emma Yanke wasn’t enough to carry the Ozaukee girls’ basketball team to an upset win last Friday night.

Yanke, a junior guard, scored a game-high 15 points, but the host Warriors couldn’t overcome a first-half deficit in a 49-43 loss to Sheboygan Christian.

Ozaukee held an 11-9 lead after one quarter, but Christian used a 17-6 run in the second period to take control.

The Eagles, who improved to 4-0 in Central Lakeshore Conference play, stretched their 26-17 halftime lead to 40-29 after three quarters.

Although Ozaukee pared the margin in the final period, it wasn’t able to make a serious comeback.

Yanke’s output included four three-point baskets. The Warriors (0-3) also got nine points from Lizzie Janke and seven from Jessika Dieringer.

Christian was led by Carissa Wisse’s 15 points.

Oostburg 46, Ozaukee 32

Unfilled weights leave Grafton wrestling team on short end at duals tourney

Forfeits got the best of the Grafton wrestling team at the Hartford Duals last Saturday.

Unable to fill as many as five weight classes, the Black Hawks lost all five of their dual meets in the annual tournament.


Even so, Grafton had several solid individual performances. Leading the way with 5-0 match records were seniors Alex Marshall (220 pounds) and Jason Gustafson (145).


Gary Ross (138), Arturo Duran (106) and Ian Olivas (195) each went 4-1 for Grafton, which also got a 3-2 effort from Liam Pfleger (132).


In their closest call, the Hawks lost to Germantown, 40-39, in what both teams counted as a North Shore Conference meet.


Grafton won seven of the nine matches wrestled but couldn’t overcome 30 forfeited points.


Scoring pins for the Hawks were Brendan Fugate (120), Ross, Gustafson, Jacob Eichhorn (160), Olivas and Marshall. Winning by decision was Tommy Makela (152).


Marshall had the fastest win with a 48-second fall.


Hawks coach Mike Dodge called the meet “a great performance to finish off a solid day of wrestling.”

Fourth-quarter comeback lifts CG-Belgium boys past errant-shooting Ozaukee in Central Lakeshore battle 

Opportunity knocked in the fourth quarter last Friday at Ozaukee High School, but only one boys’ basketball team answered.

Pulling away down the stretch, Cedar Grove-Belgium rallied for a 53-47 win in a hard-fought Central Lakeshore Conference game.

Ozaukee grabbed a four-point lead in the first quarter and maintained a 37-36 edge entering the final period.

However, the Rockets surged ahead for good with a 17-10 scoring edge the rest of the way.

Free throws were again a problem for Ozaukee, which went 2-for-9 at the line in the fourth quarter and was 6-for-18 for the game.

“Their missed free throws definitely helped us,” Rockets coach Jim Meinen said.

“With about six minutes left, we also turned up our defensive pressure and forced some turnovers.”

Balanced offense helped Cedar Grove-Belgium take control. Spencer Bares scored a game-high 17 points for the Rockets, and Adam Chier and R.J. Lemmermann had 15 and 10, respectively.

Bares, a senior, had a trio of three-point baskets.

Lemmermann, a 6-foot-7 junior, also grabbed 18 rebounds.

Cedar Grove-Belgium improved to 2-1 in CLC play and 2-2 overall. Ozaukee fell to 1-2 in the conference and 1-4 overall after winning its season opener.
