CG-Belgium’s Chier and Paul, Grafton boys’ relay race to top honors in season debuts at Nelson-Daniels Classic

The Cedar Grove-Belgium and Grafton track and field squads weren’t serious threats to win team championships when they opened the season at the Nelson-Daniels Classic in Whitewater last Friday, but individual titles in the Small Schools Division were certainly within reach.
Senior sprinter Aaron Chier got the job done for Cedar Grove-Belgium, racing to top honors in the 55-meter dash in 6.64 seconds.


Close behind was Grafton’s Nic Fullington with a third-place time of 6.71.


Grafton’s best finish came in the 1,600 relay, where the Black Hawks raced to first in 3:34.95.


The Hawks did most of their scoring on the track, collecting 39 points on the way to sixth place in the 23-team standings.


Grafton’s other top-10 finishes were thirds by Sam Miller in the 400 dash (52.65), Jonathan Lindeman in the pole vault (11 feet, 6 inches) and the 800 relay (1:38.41); a fourth by Alec Weinhold in the 1,600 run (4:40.63); and sixth by Max Jensen in the 3,200 run (10:29.1).


Cedar Grove-Belgium was 11th in the meet with 14 points.


Besides Chier’s win, the Rockets’ top-10 performances were a sixth by the 1,600 relay (3:49.47), eighth by Ian Ison in the 1,600 run (4:51.25) and ninths by Peter Merritt in the 800 run (2:14.08) and the 3,200 relay (9:14.48).


Pewaukee won the Small Schools Division boys’ team title with 80 points, well ahead of runner-up Monona Grove’s 48.

Former Port High standout wins another college wrestling crown at Oklahoma State

Former Port Washington High School standout Alex Dieringer has joined the ranks of national wrestling champions for the second straight year.

The Oklahoma State junior capped his junior season by winning the 165-pound weight class at the NCAA Division I wrestling finals in St. Louis last Saturday.

Dieringer cruised to the crown, scoring a 14-7 victory over Taylor Walsh of Indiana in the title match. He finished the season 33-0, capturing his 100th career win on the way to the top.

“I felt good,” said Dieringer, who won the 157-pound championship last season. “I wrestled smart, hitting moves I don’t usually hit.

“I stuck to my game plan pretty well: attack.”

On the way to the title match, the top-seeded Dieringer won four preliminary matches, including two pins, an 18-6 decision in the quarterfinals and a 6-1 win over Ohio State’s Bo Jordan in the semifinals.

Dieringer, a three-time All-American, has won 49 straight matches dating back to January 2014. He earned high praise from his coach John Smith, whose team placed seventh in the NCAA championships.

“From the standpoint of just dominance, he’s up there,” Smith said.

“If you look at his overall record this year and his number of major decisions, tech falls, pins, I’m not sure anybody equals it.”

Dieringer is a 2011 graduate of Port Washington High School, where he won three WIAA state titles in four seasons.

He is the son of former Port Washington residents Dave and Cindy Dieringer.

Senior pole vaulter leads Pirates in season opener; Kautz wins 3,200 run for Port girls at Raider Invitational

Zach Peer gave the Port Washington boys’ track and field team a major lift in its season opener last Saturday.

Not only did the senior equal his personal best by clearing 12 feet in the pole vault, that mark was good for first place in the Performance Running Outfitters Invitational at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside in Kenosha.

Peer topped a field of 16 vaulters, including two others who matched his height but had more misses, to give the Pirates their best individual performance of the day.

“It was a great start for Zach,” said Port coach Mark Pasten, whose squad finished eighth in the 17-team meet. “He looked good.”

The Pirates scored 36 points, just 12 fewer than runner-up Muskego in the meet. Wisconsin Lutheran won the team title easily with 149 points.

In addition to Peer’s performance, Port got a second-place finish from Nick Michalowski in the 1,600-meter run. The senior’s time of 4 minutes, 34.86 seconds trailed only Brookfield Central’s John Dusing (4:29.9) in a 30-runner field.

“Nick had a seed time of 4:35, so he was right on that,” Pasten said. “He was only seven seconds off his personal record outdoors.”

The Pirates’ other individual scoring finishes were a fourth by Jake Krapfl in the 55 hurdles (8.24), sixths by Eagan Norman in the 800 run (2:08.18) and Krapfl in the long jump (19-5-1/4), sevenths by Alec Masters in the 55 dash (a personal-best 6.95) and 200 dash (24.76) and eighth by Michalowski in the 800 run (2:08.87).

In relay races, Port got a seventh from the 3,200 team of T.J. Kasdorf, Nick Bath, James Keene and Tom Knowski (9:32.35).
