Senior leads way with two top-four finishes in Plymouth; Grafton bows to Germantown despite winning nine events

Sasha Ottesen continued her leadership role for the Port Washington girls’ swimming team last Saturday.

The senior posted a pair of top-four finishes to pace the Pirates at the annual Plymouth Invitational.

Ottesen placed third in the 100-yard breaststroke (1 minute, 13.93 seconds) and fourth in the 50 freestyle (27.62), giving Port 31 of its 50 points.

“Sasha had an excellent meet. She was just off the school record in the breaststroke,” Pirates coach Melissa Hoogester said.

The previous Saturday, Ottesen broke her own team mark in the breaststroke with a 1:13.28 effort at the Pirate Invitational.

In Plymouth, Port didn’t have the depth to stay with the rest of the eight-team field. Plymouth won the championship with 491 points, well ahead of runner-up Kiel/Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah’s 373.

Oregon/Belleville was third with 310 points.

Weiss, Hilbelink ride cousin connection in lopsided CG-Belgium victory over Reedsville

The precision of Cedar Grove-Belgium quarterback Josh Weiss and his first cousin, receiver Reid Hilbelink, reached a new level last Friday.sports1

Already putting up numbers this season more akin to a video game than actual football, Weiss went a perfect 8-for-8 for 287 yards and five touchdowns as the host Rockets obliterated Reedsville, 50-0, in a Big East Conference game.

Three of Weiss’ scoring passes were caught by Hilbelink for 187 yards.

One week after being triple-teamed and limited to two catches for 50 yards, Hilbelink said, “We took what they gave us.”

Unlike Howards Grove, Reedsville did not triple-team Hilbelink. By the time he caught the ball, he was sprinting so far from defenders it didn’t look like the Panthers covered him at all.

Weiss put three bombs on the money from  55, 58 and 74 yards to his favorite target.

“It’s a blast,” Weiss said. “With his speed, we didn’t think the corner could hang with him.”

Hilbelink said you can’t outrun Weiss’ arm. “It’s always fun. I know he’s going to put it where he needs to,” he said.

The pair’s uncle, Rockets head coach Dan Schreurs, said he is running out of accolades for his three-year starting field general and top wideout.

“I’m speechless when it comes to him and comes to Reid,” he said.

The senior scored all of host Port’s points in the 12-team meet, which was dominated by teams with depth and talent.

The Pirates were 12th with 22 points.

In relay races, Port’s top effort was a 19th-place finish by the 200 freestyle team of Elaina Wichmann, Allison Schmutzler, Olyvia Marinez and Ottesen (2:05.46).

West Bend West won the team championship with 460 points, well ahead of runner-up Oak Creek’s 364. Kohler/Sheboygan Lutheran/Sheboygan Falls was third with 331 points.

Jenna Silvestri of Kohler/Lutheran/Falls was a double winner, placing first in the 200 individual medley (2:13.2) and 100 breaststroke (1:09.01).
