Bolstered by junior’s four touchdown passes, Ozaukee steamrolls Washington, 65-38

A breakout game by quarterback Jacob Wolff helped spark the Ozaukee High School football team to a 65-38 win over Milwaukee Washington in a nonconference battle last Friday.

Wolff, a junior, completed six of eight passes for a career-high 228 yards and four touchdowns as the host Warriors exploded for 50 first-half points.


“Jake is really turning into a good quarterback. He had a nice week and some really nice passes,” Ozaukee coach Jim Lippe said.


“We did a good job executing our offense. We scored on our first eight possessions, including all seven in the first half.


“(Assistant coach) Rick Hughes did a good job calling the game.”


A high-scoring first quarter provided a sign of things to come, with Ozaukee putting up three touchdowns and Washington getting two.


Four of the Warriors’ first five scores came on pass plays of 30 or more yards


Wolff threw three touchdown strikes to wide receiver Collin Stageman, a junior who finished the night with 141 yards on just four catches.


After Wolff and Stageman combined on scoring tosses of 44 and 54 yards, Cole Large’s 4-yard touchdown run put Ozaukee ahead, 20-14.

Gutsy effort keeps Port in fight with powerhouse Homestead until 2nd half

A 23-point loss in a football showdown with a defending champion usually isn’t anything to write home about.

But for Port Washington coach John Bunyan, last Friday’s battle with perennial powerhouse Homestead was defined by more than the final score.


Things like toughness, focus and resilience earned the host Pirates kudos despite a 44-21 defeat in their North Shore Conference opener against the WIAA Division 2 state champion.


“I was extremely proud of the effort our kids gave,” said Bunyan, whose team stunned the Highlanders by overcoming an early deficit to take a 14-13 lead into halftime.


“We went into the game confident. We knew we were going to have to score some points and play strong defense to have a chance.


“We weren’t outworked. We ran our offense and got a lead. But we got worn down a little in the second half and made some mistakes.”


Homestead, a juggernaut that has lost only one conference game since 2002, appeared to be on its way to another easy win Friday when it raced to a 13-0 lead early in the second quarter.

Lineup changes allow Grafton to show versatility in easy NSC swim victory

A shuffled lineup didn’t keep the Grafton girls’ swimming and diving team from cruising to a North Shore Conference road win last week.

Despite using swimmers in events they usually don’t enter, the Black Hawks sailed past Nicolet, 122-64, on Sept. 3.


“I tried to give the girls a chance to see what they could do in different events,” Grafton coach John Douglass said.


“It was an opportunity for us to find our depth and see who can do what.”  


The Hawks’ success included 1-2 finishes in a pair of events.


In the 200-yard freestyle, Sam Senczyszyn had a winning time of 1 minute, 52.26 seconds, and Autumn Haebig was second at 1:53.12.


“I believe those are the top two times in the state in that event this season,” Douglass said.


Gabby Kraus won the diving with 201.25 points, and Paige Schommer was second with 192.7. Both scores were personal bests for six-dive competitions.


Grafton’s other swimming wins included Senczyszyn in the 100 breaststroke (1:04.06), Emma O’Brien in the 200 individual medley (2:20.86), Natalie Keshemberg in the 50 freestyle (25.26), Stephanie Haebig in the 100 backstroke (1:02.81) and Autumn Haebig in the 500 freestyle (5:05.98).
