Port wrestlers dig down to beat North Shore foes on back-to-back nights

It wasn’t easy, but the Port Washington wrestling team made the most of a back-to-back North Shore Conference challenge at home last week.

One day after defeating Homestead in a dual meet, the Pirates downed Grafton, 46-18, on Jan. 16.

Port was aided by five forfeits from Grafton, which was only able to fill eight weight classes. However, the Pirates also got pins from Jordan Clark (160 pounds) and Brandon Moeller (138) and a major decision from Quentin Lueck (152).

Clark defeated Jacob Eichhorn in 54 seconds, and Moeller needed 3:20 to pin Gary Ross. Lueck scored a 12-2 major decision over Tommy Makela.

Besides receiving one forfeit, Grafton won four of the seven matches that were wrestled.

At 195 pounds, the Hawks’ Ian Olivas defeated Cullen Bauer-Trottier, 8-4, in double overtime.

At 113, Arturo Duran downed Port’s Preston Makoutz, 10-4.

Grafton’s Liam Pfleger edged Bryce Moeller, 9-8, at 132.

At 145, the Hawks’ Kevin Taylor defeated Brannon Bauer, 5-2.

Port coach Angelo LaRosa was pleased with his team’s effort and impressed with the Hawks’ determination.

“Grafton’s kids wrestled hard. They made us work,” he said.

Hawks coach Mike Dodge was proud of his squad’s performance.

“Port is a great team, and we wrestled them well,” he said. “I was extremely impressed with all of the guys who wrestled.

“Since our first meet, we knew that winning any dual meet with our lack of wrestlers was going to be tough. Our goal of winning the majority of matches wrestled per dual has kept us focused on getting better in practice.”

Duo continue to lead team by posting top swim finishes at Manitowoc Invitational

Familiar leaders set the pace for the Port Washington boys’ swimming team at the Manitowoc Invitational last Saturday.

Junior J.B. Nosko had the Pirates’ top individual finish with a second-place time of 5 minutes, 28.15 seconds in the 500-yard freestyle.

Teammate Diego Anderson, a senior, nearly matched that effort by placing third in the 100 butterfly (1:01.97).

Both had personal-best times and received medals, which were awarded to the top six finishers in each event at the eight-team meet.

“Both of them swam well,” said Port coach Melissa Hoogester, whose squad placed sixth with 173 points.

“Diego kind of surprised me by doing so well in the butterfly, but he’s been consistently dropping his times, just like J.B. has.”

Port’s other individual scoring finishes were a seventh by Nosko in the 100 backstroke (1:06.4), eighth by Callum Toal in the 100 breaststroke (1:12.79), 10th by Daniel Gardner in the breaststroke (1:15.13), 11th by Toal in the 200 freestyle (2:09.44), 12th by Anderson in the 200 freestyle (2:10.82), 13ths by Ian Tyree in the 100 freestyle (1:00.89) and 500 freestyle (6:13.21), 14ths by Gardner in the butterfly (1:10.16) and Charles DeMerit in the 100 freestyle (1:01.14), 15th by Max Noll in the 100 backstroke (1:14.3) and a 16th by DeMerit in the 50 freestyle (26.69).

The Pirates’ top relay finish was a sixth by the 200 medley team of Nosko, Toal, Anderson and Nelson Benning (1:54.57).

Warriors can’t find winning touch in CLC home losses to Elkhart Lake, CG-Belgium

Close home games did the Ozaukee girls’ basketball team no favors in Central Lakeshore Conference play last week.

After losing by eight points to Cedar Grove-Belgium on Jan. 14, the Warriors came up short in an even tighter contest last Friday when they fell to Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah, 44-42.

In the latter game, Ozaukee trailed, 40-29, after three quarters before launching a furious fourth-period rally that wasn’t quite enough.

“The girls fought hard to come back,” Warriors coach Emily Wesley said.

“Down 11 at the beginning of the fourth quarter, they could have just rolled over. We just came up short.”

The Warriors, who slipped to 2-5 in CLC play, got a season-high 15 points from senior guard Lizzie Janke. Her total included four three-point baskets.

Teammate Jessika Dieringer added 13 points, but only two other Ozaukee players had more than one.

Elkhart Lake (3-3) had a balanced offense with scoring from seven players. Rachael Flora led the way with 14 points, and Emily Holzmann added 10.

The Warriors could have won the game on free throws but made only 11 of 19 attempts.

The Resorters were even worse at the line with a 2-for-9 effort.

After taking a 21-20 lead into halftime, Elkhart Lake pulled away with a 19-9 run in the third quarter.

Ozaukee’s defense turned up the heat in the fourth period, holding the Resorters to just four points. Dieringer’s aggressive offensive play also helped spark the rally.
