Former Port standout Dieringer pins down collegiate, international wrestling honors

With only one year of collegiate wrestling under his belt, Alex Dieringer has just begun to grapple with the learning curve that confronts young athletes.

But the former Port Washington High School standout has already taken giant steps — all the way into an international spotlight.


After going 35-3, winning a conference title and placing third in the NCAA tournament as a redshirt freshman at Oklahoma State University in March, Dieringer stayed on a roll this summer.


As a member of Team USA, he placed second in the 74-kilogram (163-pound) weight class at the Junior World Freestyle Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria in August.

Pirates’ fourth-quarter woes help Cedarburg pull away for North Shore Conference win

A fourth-quarter bugaboo took its toll again on the Port Washington football team.

As was the case in a recent loss to top-ranked Homestead, the Pirates stayed with favored Cedarburg last Friday night before fading to a 34-20 defeat in North Shore Conference play.

Trailing by only 17-14, Port had a chance to pull even when it drove to the Bulldogs’ 15 late in the third quarter. But after Jake Krapfl’s 32-yard field-goal attempt sailed wide left, Cedarburg took charge for good.

The Bulldogs mounted an 80-yard, 10-play march, capped by Jonathan Stiever’s 14-yard touchdown catch. The scoring strike from quarterback Mike Mojica was the only pass of the drive and put Cedarburg up, 24-14.


After intercepting passes on Port’s next two possessions, Cedarburg ended the suspense by tacking on a field goal by Trevor Tegtmeier and a 25-yard touchdown run by Hudson Walton.


“We just ran out of gas in the fourth quarter. It’s something we’ve got to figure out,” said Port coach John Bunyan, whose team has struggled with a lack of depth against two-platoon foes.
