Ozaukee’s Kraus named Central Lakeshore’s top wrestler after breakout year

A breakout season for Ozaukee wrestler Colton Kraus has culminated in the highest honor his league gives.

The 113-pound junior was named Central Lakeshore Conference Wrestler of the Year after posting a runner-up finish at the WIAA
Division 3 state individual tournament.

Although Random Lake captured more collective honors by winning the conference and advancing to state team competition, no other wrestler was even in the individual conversation among conference coaches, said Ozaukee coach Luke Gundrum.

Kraus had the highest state finish among any Central Lakeshore wrestler and earned Ozaukee’s first Wrestler of the Year award
since the conference began the honor four years ago.

“It was pretty unanimous,” Gundrum said. “Who ended up finishing the year highest at the state tournament has a lot to do with that.”

It didn’t hurt that Kraus went 39-8 during the season and won conference, regional and sectional titles. He was undefeated in the CLC, shut out both of his sectional opponents (8-0 and 11-0) and won both of his regional matches by pin.

At state, Kraus won a 10-8 battle against Clear Lake’s Cody Shafer (39-10) and scored a 10-1 major decision over Cadott’s Sean
Sonnentag (40-8) to reach the first-place final.

Long-distance talent to set pace for Port boys’ track team that may be thin in other areas

When it comes to the numbers game, the Port Washington boys’ track and field team should be more than able to hold its own this season.

With nearly 70 athletes out for the sport, Pirates coach Mark Pasten has plenty of choices as he and his staff fill out the lineup.

But just how far varsity talent will take Port in the North Shore Conference and beyond is another question.

“Our numbers are good, and we have 14 returning letterwinners, which is probably more than we did last year,” Pasten said.

“We don’t have a ton of depth, but we should be able to fill most of the events.”

Grafton forward lands on first team; coaches give kudos to Burbach, Keshemberg

It wasn’t difficult for coaches to decide what boys’ basketball program would receive the lion’s share of the awards in this season’s All-North Shore Conference voting.

Germantown, which dominated league and nonconference foes on the way to its second straight WIAA Division 1 state title, had three players named to the All-NSC first team.

Leading the way for the undefeated Warhawks was senior center Luke Fischer, a 7-foot University of Indiana recruit who led the league in scoring and was chosen conference Player of the Year.

Among local teams, Grafton and Port Washington received recognition in the balloting.

Representing Grafton are forward Scott Tyler, a first-team selection, and guard Caleb Keshemberg, who earned honorable mention. For Port Washington, guard Joey Burbach was named to the second team for the second straight season.
