Mistake-marred loss to Howards Grove continues skid that reaches six games


This week’s holiday break may be just what the doctor ordered for the Port Washington girls’ basketball team.

At least coach Brian Johnson hopes so.PORT WASHINGTON’S Caity Tydrick dribbled past Alexis Lindstrom of Howards Grove during a nonconference game last week.

After watching the Lady Pirates struggle to their sixth straight defeat Dec. 22 — a 49-35 loss to Howards Grove — Johnson was frank about his team’s shortcomings.

“We’re not playing with focus. We’re not getting into any flow in the game,” he said.

“It comes down to pulling together and playing as a team. It has to get better.”

In the Pirates’ defense, getting better was a tall task against undefeated Howards Grove, a Central Lakeshore Conference power. The Tigers, who are among the state’s top Division 4 teams, arrived for the nonconference game armed with a spirited fan following and added incentive.

Howards Grove guard Alexis Lindstrom started the night needing seven points to reach the 1,000-point career mark. The senior accomplished that goal with a pair of free throws in the closing seconds of the first half — setting off a celebration and giving the Tigers a 26-17 lead at intermission.

One of the few highlights for Port was a brief third-quarter rally. After falling behind, 28-17, the Pirates scored seven straight points — including five by center Nicole Ziehm — and pulled within 28-24 with four minutes left.

However, the Tigers regained control by ending the quarter with a 10-4 run and were never seriously threatened again.

Strong backcourt play throughout the game fueled the Tigers, who got 36 points from guards Karyssa Gallenberger (13), Lindstrom (12) and Brianna Morgan (11).  

Howards Grove, which improved to 7-0, stayed in control by regularly drawing contact from a Port defense that was often a step slow and out of position. The Pirates were whistled for 24 fouls, leading to a 17-for-27 effort at the line by the Tigers.

Junior standout lowers own school backstroke mark, but team can’t match West Bend depth in dual meet


Rising to the occasion has hardly ever been a problem for Grafton High School swimmer Al Nennig — and last week was no exception.

The junior continued his annual assault on excellence with a record-setting performance in a home meet against the West Bend co-op team Dec. 20.

Nennig won two individual races, including the 100-yard backstroke with a school-record time of 52.96 seconds. That effort broke the previous mark of 53.59 he set last season.JUSTIN HILGART of Grafton churned through the water during the 100-yard butterfly race against West Bend last week.                          Photo by Sam Arendt

Nennig’s other solo victory came in the 200 individual medley (2:03.17). His success was part of six first-place finishes by the Black Hawks, who matched West Bend in event wins but didn’t have the depth to avoid a 109-76 defeat.

“Al’s set some high goals for himself again this year,” Grafton coach Mark Minz said. “He’s got a lot of the school records already, and he wants to set a few more.”

Nennig remained unbeaten in individual races this season. Besides owning the backstroke mark, he holds school records in the 50 freestyle, 100 freestyle and 100 breaststroke and as a member of the 200 and 400 freestyle teams.

Matching Nennig’s scoring production in the meet was teammate Brad Kempka, a junior who won the 200 freestyle (1:58.35) and 500 freestyle (5:43.82).

The Hawks’ other wins came from the 200 medley relay team of Kempka, Nennig, Ben Stewart and Kieran Paddock (1:48.67) and 400 freestyle team of Ben Helm, Ben Gosselin, Nennig and Kempka (3:31.91).

Championship by undefeated sophomore leads local wrestlers in weekend tournaments

The Ozaukee High School wrestling squad was short-handed due to injuries, and the tournament had a goofy format.

But the Warriors still finished in the top half of the 17-team Willard Schmidt Scramble in Green Bay last Saturday.OZAUKEE’S ETHAN BROUILLETTE turned Donnell Rash of Milwaukee Riverside/Shorewood upside down during their 138-pound match in a nonconference meet last week.

Leading the Ozaukee charge was sophomore Cole Large, who remained undefeated on his way to the title at 106 pounds.

Large improved his record to 17-0 with a 5-0 win over Chilton’s Dillon Koenigs in the first-place final. It was the first loss of the season for Koenigs (11-1).

“That was against a good kid,” Ozaukee coach Luke Gundrum said of Large’s title clincher.

On his way to the final, Large received a first-round bye and won three matches, including a semifinal pin of Sturgeon Bay’s Kolt Knutson in 1 minute, 52 seconds.

The Warriors scored 286 points to finish in the middle of the team standings. Stevens Point took top honors with 468.5 points, and Lomira was second with 443.

Ozaukee’s other place finishes were a third by Logan Smith (132), fourths by Taz Gottsacker (126) and Ben Brouillette (220), a fifth by Ethan Brouillette 9(138), sixths by Colton Kraus (113) and Leo Fechter (285), a seventh by Mike Burmesch (120) and an eighth by Dann Zimmer (195).

Smith, a junior, improved his season record to 14-3.

After a first-round bye, he won twice before losing to Lakeland’s Jordan Goessl, 9-2, in the semifinals. In the third-place final, Smith pinned Stevens Point’s Tyler Kiefer in 5:49.

Gottsacker (10-7) won two matches before losing in the semifinals and being pinned by Chilton’s Nic Adkins in the third-place match.

Ben Brouillette received two byes before winning by pin. He was then pinned twice, including a loss to Green Bay West/Southwest’s Steven Fishler in the third-place final.

The tournament’s format produced some strange finishes. Pools were determined before the wrestlers took the mats rather than after the first two matches, as in most tournaments.

As a result, Ethan Brouillette could do no better than fifth despite going 4-1.

Even so, Gundrum said the tournament was a worthwhile experience for his team.

“It was a pretty good day with good matches,” he said. “It’s good competition.”

Ozaukee was without several wrestlers, including junior Ian Hughes, a state qualifier last season who was sidelined Saturday due to an injury.

“That’s a big deal. We’ve got to get those guys back in,” Gundrum said. “The kids that did compete Saturday are looking pretty good.”

Ozaukee 45, Riverside/Shorewood 36
