Large leads five Ozaukee wrestlers to Div. 3 state meet in group that also includes Cedar Grove-Belgium pair

Cole Large already holds most of the Ozaukee High School wrestling records.

Now, he’s going to see if he can make some noise at the WIAA state individual tournament for a fourth time.

The 132-pound senior will be accompanied to this week’s Division 3 meet in Madison by three teammates making their second state trips — seniors Kevin Beckmann (160), Colton Kraus (126) and Taz Gottsacker (170) — and a first-timer, junior Daniel Watry (106).

Also reaching the state level in the same division are two Cedar Grove-Belgium wrestlers, senior Greg Wenzel (182) and sophomore Isaac Brockman (120).

The Madison-bound wrestlers all advanced by turning in top-three finishes at the Cedar Grove-Belgium Sectional last Saturday.

Large will try to better his career-best fourth-place finish in last year’s state meet.

Four Port wrestlers book return trips to Div. 1 state tournament with strong sectional performances

Four Port Washington wrestlers weren’t about to let their seasons end at the Sheboygan South Sectional last Saturday.

Instead, they showed their mettle by posting three championships and a runner-up finish and earned their second career trips to this week’s WIAA state individual tournament in Madison.

Seniors Noah Rosado (113 pounds), Quentin Lueck (145) and Andy Fidler (285) won titles, and junior Zach Smith joined the qualifiers by placing second at 120.

“Four guys got through. That’s really good,” Port coach Angelo LaRosa said.

“They all have a chance to do very well at state.”

Each of the sectional champs continued late-season surges by dominating their weight classes.

Rosado, who improved to 37-4, scored a 16-0 technical fall over Kaukauna’s Ian Gioacchini in the title match. On the way to the final, Rosado pinned Fond du Lac’s Colin Athanasiou in 47 seconds and then pinned
Kimberly’s Jordan Weinzetl in 5:46.

“Noah is wrestling the best of his career right now,” said LaRosa, who noted that Rosado scored his third win over Gioacchini (37-11) in four meetings this season.

Young Grafton boys’ team caps season with four top-10 finishes at state swim meet

For a team in rebuilding mode, the Grafton boys’ swimming and diving squad handled itself quite well at the biggest meet of the season last Friday.

With all four of their qualifiers turning in top-10 performances at the WIAA Division 2 state finals in Madison, the Black Hawks scored 48 points, good for 17th place in a 34-team field.


Sophomore Bailey Bodart led the way with a second-place effort in the 50-yard freestyle (21.87 seconds), and freshman Jack Senczyszyn was seventh in the 100 breaststroke (1:02.16).


Grafton’s other scoring came from its two senior divers. Killian Mielotz placed seventh with 313.65 points, and Zach Greenwood was 10th with 237.45.


“We did all right. I was pleased with that kind of finish after we lost so much talent from last year to graduation,” Grafton coach Mark Minz said.


“It was a really nice way to end the season.”


Last season, the Hawks’ senior-heavy team had 10 individual finishes and three relays qualify for the state level, where they placed sixth with 156 points. A repeat effort was not in the cards, but Grafton still cashed in with a
blend of young and veteran talent.


One year after swimming on a state-qualifying medley relay, Bodart showed his sprinting skill by trailing only Madison Edgewood’s Zack Parkin (20.92) out of 16 entrants in the 50 freestyle.


“Bailey had a solid second. He would have liked a faster time, but he still held it under 22 (seconds),” Minz said.
