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.”

Soccer champion Ozaukee lands three players on all-league first team that also includes two CG-B standouts

The Ozaukee girls’ soccer team used a pretty straightforward recipe for success this season:

Spread equal parts talent, poise and leadership across the field, add an ample dose of determination, and you’ll put yourself in line for championship honors.

For the Warriors, that line led to conference, regional, sectional and state titles, as well as postseason awards.

Central Lakeshore Conference coaches acknowledged Ozaukee’s approach by naming midfielder Katie Bares, forward Natalie Clark and defender Mickey Burns to the first team in this year’s all-league voting.

Bares and Clark were unanimous choices for the squad, whose members also include Cedar Grove-Belgium’s Halie Schieffer and Briana Weyker.

Bares, a senior, led Ozaukee with 77 points (26 goals and 25 assists) on the way to her fourth first-team selection. She capped her career with two goals and an assist when the Warriors defeated Prairie School, 3-1, to win the WIAA Division 3 state title.

Tough-minded approach earns second-team soccer recognition for Grafton trio, Port Washington’s Faldet

When it comes to hard work, the top players on this year’s Grafton girls’ soccer team played second fiddle to no one.

Seniors Angie Mann and Alyssa Arnold and freshman Maria Salm all emerged as blue-collar leaders for the Black Hawks, who scrapped their way to fourth place in the perennially tough North Shore Conference.

Fittingly, the three caught the eye of coaches, who accorded them second-team honors in All-NSC voting.

Earning the same recognition for her determined play was Port Washington junior Bridget Faldet.

“We had a solid season,” said Grafton coach Don Arnold, whose team posted a 4-3 record in league play and was 12-5-1 overall.
