Grafton secures 2nd at conference meet controlled by Cedarburg’s big numbers

The numbers game did the Grafton girls’ swimming and diving team no favors in the North Shore Conference meet at Homestead High School last weekend.

Despite turning in another in a long line of  solid performances this season, the Black Hawks didn’t have enough depth to stay with Cedarburg in a race for the championship.


“When you can have 36 entries in a meet like this, that’s what happens. Cedarburg fills them, and we only had 27,” said Grafton coach John Douglass, whose team placed second with 395 points.


“That’s how the meet is scored. We don’t have enough people to stay with Cedarburg in this format.”


The Bulldogs scored 442 points to repeat as champions.


Homestead was a distant third with 301 points, followed by Germantown (289), Nicolet (253), Whitefish Bay (222), Port Washington (110) and Milwaukee Lutheran (68).


Three individual wins helped the Hawks secure runner-up honors in the NSC final for the second straight year.


Junior Sam Senczyszyn placed first in the 50-yard freestyle (23.5 seconds), as did sophomore Natalie Keshemberg in the 100 backstroke (59.88) and freshman Autumn Haebig in the 500 freestyle (5:08.6).

Quick-strike foe leaves Ozaukee football team playing from behind early in Division 6 playoff defeat

The Ozaukee High School football season came to a crashing halt at Titan Stadium in Oshkosh last Friday night.

Falling behind early and unable to muster any sustained offense, the Warriors fell to Lourdes Academy, 39-6, in a second-round game of the WIAA Division 6 playoffs.


“We could never get our offense on track,” Ozaukee coach Jim Lippe said.


“Lourdes is pretty big and pretty fast. We struggled moving the ball on them.


“They are a really good team and really well coached. Some of it had to do with our youth, but we won’t use that as an excuse.”


Ozaukee, which set a team scoring record this season with 340 points in 11 games, was held to single digits for the first time since last fall.


The Warriors managed only 191 yards of total offense and trailed, 33-0, before they got on the board with a third-quarter touchdown.


Lourdes didn’t need long to take control of a game that improved its season record to 10-1.


Less than two minutes after receiving the opening kickoff, the Knights jumped ahead on a 57-yard touchdown run by Tony O’Krueg-Wright. Quarterback Charlie Noone connected with Michael Godfrey on a two-point conversion pass to make it 8-0.

Port boys live up to top billing on way to sectional crown, berth in Div. 1 final

Living up to expectations was not a problem for the Port Washington boys’ cross-country team last Saturday.

In fact, it was all in a day’s work for the Pirates, who raced to a WIAA Division 1 sectional title and a berth in this week’s state run with an impressive showing at Tendick Park in Saukville.

Placing all of its scoring finishers in the top 17 of a 76-runner field, Port scored just 49 points, well ahead of runner-up Germantown’s 80 points.

In the process, the Pirates earned their first full-team trip to state since 2010, when they finished third in the Division 2 final.


“Things went about as we hoped,” Port coach Mark Pasten said. “The guys executed their plan to perfection.”


That plan, Pasten said, was to go out fast as a group, set a winning pace early and keep the pressure on other teams.


Eagan Norman led a tight pack finish by the Pirates with a 5,000-meter time of 16 minutes, 45 seconds, good for fifth place. Right on his heels was fellow junior Nick Michalowski in sixth (16:46).


Seniors Billy Ernest (16:59) and Taylor Godersky (17:00) placed 10th and 11th, respectively, and junior Tom Knowski was 17th (a personal-best 17:25).


Rounding out the Pirates’ finishers were junior Lucas Bischoff in 19th (17:29) and senior Mason Purtell in 29th (17:45).


Norman and Michalowski ran well but “could have competed a little harder,” Pasten said.


“But that’s OK because our goal is to run the hardest next week,” he added.
