Junior’s 2nd-place finish leads feisty Ozaukee effort at state wrestling tournament

Entering last week’s WIAA Division 3 state individual tournament, Ozaukee junior Colton Kraus said that if he wrestled his best, he could do pretty well.

He just didn’t know he’d place second in the 113-pound weight class.

After a first-round bye, Kraus won twice to reach the title match Saturday at the Kohl Center, where he couldn’t quite overcome an undefeated foe.

For Ozaukee senior Ethan Brouillette, just wrestling at all after a shoulder injury sidelined him most of the season was an accomplishment. Throw in a fourth-place finish at 152 pounds — his best in four trips to state — and he’s an inspiration that left his coach in awe.

Junior’s perseverance helps him secure 6th place in his first state tournament

Quentin Lueck isn’t the biggest, strongest member of the Port Washington High School wrestling team, nor did he have the best record among the Pirates this season.

But the junior showed that he has as much mat mettle as anyone when he earned a medal at last week’s WIAA Division 1 state individual tournament in Madison.

After a tough first-round loss in the 152-pound weight class, Lueck won two of his next four matches to place sixth at the Kohl Center.

In the fifth-place final, he was edged by Oconomowoc’s Logan Ballering, 7-5.

Nennig caps record-setting career with two Div. 2 state-meet victories for senior-led Grafton boys’ team

What can a swimmer who holds virtually every record at his high school do to punctuate his career?

If you’re Grafton’s Al Nennig, you make sure to come home from your final meet as a double state champion.

“It was a great day. Everything went really well,” said Nennig, who capped his senior season by winning the 50-yard freestyle and 100 backstroke in the WIAA Division 2 finals at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Natatorium last Friday.

“This year was really special for the team and me. We had a great group of guys who worked hard all season.”

Nennig successfully defended his state title in 50 freestyle with a winning time 21.08 seconds. The time, the fourth-fastest in Division 2 state-meet history, was well ahead of runner-up Lew Hollman of Fort Atkinson (21.76) and lowered Nennig’s own school mark.

In the backstroke, Nennig was clocked in 52.65, holding off a serious challenge from Shawano’s Zach Soper, a sophomore who took second in 52.77.

“He’s a great sophomore. He really pushed me,” Nennig said of Soper. “By then, my legs were a little tired after swimming in the (200-freestyle) relay.”

Although Nennig’s gold-medal day stole the show, it wasn’t the Black Hawks’ lone bright spot. He was joined by three fellow seniors on a pair of relays that turned in top-three finishes.

The 200 freestyle team of Nennig, Brad Kempka, Kieran Paddock and Ben Gosselin placed second (1:27.82), narrowly losing to Monona Grove (1:27.28). In the 400 freestyle, the team of Gosselin, Paddock, Nennig and Kempka was third (3:18.94).
