Grafton baseball team overpowers West Bend East to earn share of 6th in NSC

After an up-and-down regular season, the Grafton High School baseball team was itching for an ego boost before entering the WIAA tournament this week.

A 6-1 win over West Bend East in the Black Hawks’ North Shore Conference finale last Friday turned the trick nicely.


“Our guys did a great job,” said Grafton coach Brian Durst, whose squad took charge with a combination of timely hits, steady defense and sharp pitching by  Nate Lukas.


“It was Senior Night, and we were up for the game. It was definitely good to get a win like this, especially heading into the playoffs.”


Lukas, a junior left-hander, kept East in check with a three-hit, complete-game effort. He struck out two and walked one, with his only mistake coming on a solo homer to Eric Bould in the second inning.


Bould’s blast briefly tied the game at 1-1, but Grafton responded with five unanswered runs.

In the Hawks’ third inning, Brett Rasmussen led off with a triple and scored on a one-out single by Choo Weisflog. After Weisflog advanced to second base on a wild pitch, he came home on Beau Benzschawel’s single to give Grafton a 3-1 lead.

The Hawks tacked on a run in the fifth when Benzschawel walked, reached second base on a walk to Lukas and scored on a Tim Grams’ single.

In the sixth, Benzschawel capped a big night by cracking a two-run homer after Weisflog drew a two-out walk.

Late rally in tournament allows Port baseball team to end nine-game losing steak

Three weeks of frustration ended for the Port Washington High School baseball team last Saturday.

Although the Pirates were blanked by Wauwatosa West, 6-0, in the championship contest of a wooden-bat tournament hosted in Waukesha, they managed to snap a nine-game losing streak with a semifinal victory.


Port rallied to defeat Waukesha South, 11-8, in the opener of the four-team competition at Waukesha West High School.


The Pirates trailed, 8-7, and were down to their last out in the seventh inning when they launched the decisive comeback.


Pinch hitter Aiden Wojciehowski got things started with a single. After Mitch Schmit singled, Alec Huebner’s RBI double tied the score.


Kiley Prellwitz followed with a two-run single, and Mitch Bartlein’s RBI base hit made it 11-8.


“It was  a great comeback by our kids,” Port coach Nicholas Wycklendt said. “They were really hungry for a win, and they never gave up.”
