Four wins by as many individuals help carry Ozaukee boys to team title at Kohler invitational

A balanced scoring attack led the Ozaukee boys’ track and field team to top honors at the Glenn Funk Invitational in Kohler last Friday.

Bolstered by four first-place finishes, the Warriors scored 122 points, 20 more than runner-up Living Word Lutheran in the six-team standings.

One of Ozaukee’s standouts was senior Elijah Mabry, who won the triple jump with a leap of 37 feet, 11 inches, and placed second in the 100-meter dash (11.25 seconds) and high jump (5-9).

The Warriors’ Gavin Dorler won the high jump (5-9 with fewer misses) and was second in the long jump (18-5-1/2) and fourth in the 100 dash (11.54).

Teammate Keegan Richards won the shot put (40-8-1/2) and was second in the discus (137-11).

Ozaukee’s other win came from Bradd Lemke in the 800 run (2:12.75). He was also third in the 1,600 run (5:07.28).

The Warriors’ other scoring finishes included seconds by Mac Stahl in the 400 dash (56.62) and triple jump (35-6); thirds by Joe Ceranski in the 400 dash (57.19) and the 400 relay of Zach Vogt, Joey Janik, Stahl and Nick Marz (49.94); a fifth by Vogt in the 200 dash (25.5); and sixth by Adam Vang in the 300 hurdles (1:00.16).

Fielding problems dash Port’s hope for upset road victory over Germantown

Shaky defense sealed the fate of the Port Washington softball team against the North Shore Conference’s top squad April 30.

Committing six errors, the Pirates were handed a 10-3 road loss by first-place Germantown.

“Our defense hurt us. We dropped some easy pop-ups,” said Port coach Bob Snook, whose team fell to 3-4 in league play.

“Those are plays we have to make.”

Trailing, 3-0, the Pirates scored once in the third inning.

After Germantown stretched its lead to 7-1, Port responded with two runs in the fifth. However, the Warhawks sealed the outcome with a three-run sixth.

The Pirates finished with six hits, including a 3-for-4 effort by Amanda Kaiser, who drove in a run. Teammate Maggie Schmit had a double.

After being handed tough losses in a pair of North Shore Conference meets last week, the Grafton boys’ tennis team entered Saturday’s Trojan/Spartan Invitational in Wauwatosa hoping for better things.

Although the Black Hawks didn’t come home with a championship, they found a bit of consolation with three fifth-place performances.

“We needed to have a positive finish to the week, and we got that,” Grafton coach Nick Kassens said.

“We had some nice wins in really tough matches.”

Sam Bucheger placed fifth for the Hawks at No. 1 singles, as did the No. 1 doubles team of Ben Bauman and Andrew Mosin and the No. 2 duo of Tommy Makela and Connor Neeck.

Bucheger, a junior, lost his first match, 6-4, 6-4 to Cedarburg’s Tommy Willer, but bounced back to win twice. He defeated a Muskego opponent, 6-4, 6-4, and a Franklin foe, 6-4, 4-6, 11-9.

After a 6-0, 6-3 loss to Greendale, Bauman and Mosin rebounded with two wins: 6-3, 6-3 over Wauwatosa West and 6-4, 3-6, 10-3 over Muskego.

Makela and Neeck opened with a 6-1, 7-5 loss Franklin but posted comeback wins of 1-6, 6-2, 10-3 against Muskego and 5-7, 6-0, 10-8 against Cedarburg.
