After solid performance in season-opening victory, Port ends first baseball week with three ragged defeats

After opening the season with a solid road win May 23, the Port Washington High School baseball team ran into a learning curve and lost their next three games last weekend.

Most recently, the Pirates had a tough time on a long road trip, dropping both ends of an error-filled doubleheader against Pewaukee at the Metrodome in Minneapolis. After losing the opener, 7-2, Port fell, 17-6.

“It was a lot of fun getting to play in the Metrodome, but we didn’t play sharp baseball,” Pirates coach Nicholas Wycklendt said.

“We had way too many errors and walks. We learned about what we have to work on to become a better team.”

In the first game, Port trailed by only 3-1 after three innings but gave up four runs in the bottom of the fourth. Although both teams had five hits, the Pirates committed six errors, including four in the fourth. Only one Pewaukee run in the game was earned.

There’s nothing like going into the playoffs on a roll. Just ask the Grafton girls’ soccer team.

After losing to top-ranked Cedarburg, 3-1, on May 13, the Black Hawks have bounced back by wrapping up the regular season with four consecutive shutout wins, including a 4-0 victory at University School last Friday.

“We definitely are playing some very good soccer right now,” said Grafton coach Don Arnold, whose team improved its overall record to 9-4-1 entering WIAA Division 2 tournament play this week.

“We’ve been really steady on defense and are moving the ball on offense and creating a lot of scoring opportunities.”

In Friday’s nonconference match, the Hawks handled a quick, aggressive foe by scoring twice in each half.
