Norman’s victory leads Port boys to 2nd straight NSC cross-country crown

After winning the 2012 North Shore Conference championship by five points, the Port Washington boys’ cross-country team took aim at a more decisive
statement in its title defense last Saturday.

It all came together for the Pirates, who cruised to a second straight league crown with just 34 points at Tendick Park in Saukville.

All five of Port’s scoring finishers placed in the top 13 of a 61-runner field — a pace that left Grafton a distant second with 66 points.

Eagan Norman led the Pirates with a winning time of 16 minutes, 34 seconds on the 5,000-meter course.

Close behind were teammates Nick Michalowski in third (16:46), Billy Ernest in seventh (16:50), Taylor Godersky in 10th (17:01) and Lucas Bischoff in 13th (17:16).

“I thought the guys competed really well,” Port boys’ coach Mark Pasten said.

Weisflog’s big night leads veteran standouts in 62-7 win over Milwaukee Lutheran

If you’re going to celebrate Senior Night, you might as well go all out.

Fittingly, players taking their final bows for the Grafton High School football team last Friday night fueled most of the revelry in a season-ending thumping of Milwaukee Lutheran.

Led by quarterback Choo Weisflog, the Black Hawks got seven touchdowns from seniors on the way to a 62-7 win in North Shore Conference play.

Weisflog ran for a game-high 163 yards and two touchdown on just six carries, as well as throwing three scoring passes — to fellow seniors Alex Gall, Beau Benzschawel and Michael Nielsen.

For good measures, seniors Alex Teich and Brad Hanney had touchdown runs, as Grafton finished with a 3-4 league record.

Brothers lead way as Ozaukee throttles Howards Grove

When the Ozaukee Warriors held their homecoming football game last Friday, it was the Stageman family’s time to shine.

Brothers Collin and Cody Stageman combined their talents to lead Ozaukee to a 49-7 rout of Howards Grove in Central Lakeshore Conference play.

Collin, a junior, scored five touchdowns, including several on blocks by Cody, a senior lineman who also sparked the Warriors’ defense.

“We played a nice game,” Ozaukee coach Jim Lippe said. “The offensive line stepped up and had one of its best games of season.”

Ozaukee’s lead rusher, Nick Wojciechowski, was sidelined with a sprained ankle. But on this night, the Warriors didn’t need him because of Collin Stageman.

He rushed for 171 yards on just eight carries, including scoring bursts of 61, 55 and 44 yards, and added touchdowns on a 40-yard reception and 30-yard interception return.

He averaged a remarkable 21.4 yards per carry.

“Collin filled in nicely, as did Kevin Beckmann,” Lippe said of his backfield duo.

“Collin had a heck of a game on both sides of the game. On one play where he had a touchdown, his brother Cody had a great block to spring him, which is pretty awesome.

“Cody also had a heck of a game. He is playing like a four-year starter should and is having a great senior season.”
