Long-distance talent to set pace for Port boys’ track team that may be thin in other areas

When it comes to the numbers game, the Port Washington boys’ track and field team should be more than able to hold its own this season.

With nearly 70 athletes out for the sport, Pirates coach Mark Pasten has plenty of choices as he and his staff fill out the lineup.

But just how far varsity talent will take Port in the North Shore Conference and beyond is another question.

“Our numbers are good, and we have 14 returning letterwinners, which is probably more than we did last year,” Pasten said.

“We don’t have a ton of depth, but we should be able to fill most of the events.”

Grafton forward lands on first team; coaches give kudos to Burbach, Keshemberg

It wasn’t difficult for coaches to decide what boys’ basketball program would receive the lion’s share of the awards in this season’s All-North Shore Conference voting.

Germantown, which dominated league and nonconference foes on the way to its second straight WIAA Division 1 state title, had three players named to the All-NSC first team.

Leading the way for the undefeated Warhawks was senior center Luke Fischer, a 7-foot University of Indiana recruit who led the league in scoring and was chosen conference Player of the Year.

Among local teams, Grafton and Port Washington received recognition in the balloting.

Representing Grafton are forward Scott Tyler, a first-team selection, and guard Caleb Keshemberg, who earned honorable mention. For Port Washington, guard Joey Burbach was named to the second team for the second straight season.

Grafton boys’ frenzied postseason run ends in grip of hard-pressing, hot-shooting Pulaski basketball team

One step away from booking its first trip to a WIAA state tournament in 19 years, the Grafton boys’ basketball team stumbled a bit last Saturday afternoon.

It wasn’t a matter of the Black Hawks stumbling on their own, though.


It took Pulaski, a formidable foe armed with harassing defense and a sharp-shooting star, to end Grafton’s improbable postseason run.


“We had trouble handling their defense. We were a little short at the guard position,” said Hawks coach Bob Maronde, whose team bowed, 53-37, in a Division 2 sectional title game at Fond du Lac High School.


“Pulaski shot the ball very well and put us in a hole early. It was tough to come back against a team that played that well.”


The top-seeded Red Raiders, fresh off a sectional-semifinal win over Seymour, wasted no time turning up the heat on fifth-seeded Grafton in the battle for a state berth.


After Scott Tyler’s three-pointer gave the Hawks a 3-0 lead, Pulaski went on an 11-0 run and never looked back. Senior forward Cody Wichmann scored seven of his game-high 29 points during the surge, which was sparked by a 1-3-1 half-court trap that forced four Grafton turnovers in the first period.


The Hawks stayed within striking distance in the second quarter, cutting the deficit to 17-11 on a pair of Tyler free throws with four minutes left.
