Port overtakes Saints for runner-up position in Northern Division

The Cedarburg Mercs had already sewed up the Land O’ Lakes Northern Division title, but there was a battle to the finish line for second place during the last week of the regular season.

When the diamond dust had settled Sunday, it was the Port Washington Lakers who surged into the runner-up spot with a pair of hard-fought victories.


Port ended the season with a record of 11-7


The Saukville Saints, however, fell into a two-way tie for third place in the standings with three disappointing losses. They ended up with a regular season record of 10-8.


Port Washington 12, Grafton 6


A six-run fifth inning gave the host Lakers the lead for good in their final regular season game Sunday. The game was rescheduled from Wednesday.


In that pivotal fifth inning, Port’s Mick Borchardt doubled home the lead run. Ed Kozlowski and Kyle Kichura added run-scoring singles.


After spotting Port a 3-0 lead in the first, the Express scored five times in the top of the third inning to take a 5-3 lead.


Key hits in Grafton’s big inning were Joey Thome’s two-run triple and Brian Hirschinger’s RBI three-bagger.


Chris Laurishke collected four hits for Port, with Kichura and Kozlowski adding three each.


Grafton’s top hitter was Mike Pruefer with three hits.

Coaches group singles out Sternig, Lukas for recognition in annual all-state accolades

Two Grafton players have joined the state’s elite in high school baseball this summer.

The Black Hawks’ Bryan Sternig and Nate Lukas received recognition in the 2014 all-state selections by the Wisconsin Baseball Coaches Association.

Sternig, a junior, was one of three outfielders named to the first team, and Lukas, a senior, was chosen as a second-team infielder.

Sternig excelled at the plate and in center field for a squad that went 19-7 overall and shared third place in the North Shore Conference.

He set numerous single-season Grafton records, including a .512 batting average, 44 hits and 31 runs.

Sternig had a .779 slugging average with 14 doubles, three triples and a homer, and drove in 32 runs. He stole 13 bases in 14 attempts.

Sternig played errorless defense and had 54 putouts and two assists.

For his all-around contributions, he re-ceived Grafton’s Silver Slugger and Gold Glove awards.

Despite favorable weather, late surge in registration, largest catches in three species smaller than last year

Fishing has been down on Lake Michigan this year thanks to the long winter and subsequent cold water temperatures, but that didn’t stop anglers from reeling in some big fish during the Port Washington Lions Club’s annual fish derby last weekend.

“The numbers were down quite a bit this year, but we were extremely happy with the weather Saturday and Sunday,” derby organizer Dave Mueller said.


Mueller said the derby had about 65 registrations Thursday, but jumped significantly after fishermen heard reports of a 32-pound brown trout that was reeled in earlier in the week.


“We always have a lot of guys register on Friday, but this year a lot of it can be attributed to the big fish that was caught,” Mueller said. “Guys wanted their shot at a record.”


Alas, the largest brown trout was down significantly from last year, at 13.6 pounds. It was caught by Laura Olund of
Menomonee Falls. Last year’s winner was 18.2 pounds.

“The four biggest browns we got were from one boat,” Mueller said. “From what I heard, they were near the southern part of the county line.”


There were also a slight decrease in the size of the winning chinook and coho salmon compared to last year.
