First-year coach has team banking on speed, versatility in face of height shortage

What it lacks in height, the Port Washington boys’ basketball team may be able to make up for with quickness and hustle this season.

At least that’s the hope of Brian Hebein, who enters his first year as the Pirates’ varsity coach.

“We don’t have anyone over 6-foot-4, but we have a lot of versatility with guys who can play multiple positions,” said Hebein, who has succeeded John Bunyan at the helm.

“We also have good team speed. Our players should be able to push the ball, get up the floor and get good quality shots.”

With six players from last season’s team — including standouts Kyle Ris-meyer and Sawyer Mosley — lost to graduation, Port has some voids to fill.

However, the Pirates won’t be without offensive firepower, especially with the return of swing player Joey Burbach. The 6-4 senior averaged a team-best 16.7 points per game on the way to All-North Shore Conference second-team honors last season.

Grafton girls shine with sectional show that qualifies 11 individual finishes, 3 relays for state; Port advances 3 divers

Anyone doubting that the Grafton girls’ swimming and diving team can hold its own against the state’s best should have been at Plymouth High School last weekend.

Besides nearly defeating defending state champion Shorewood in a WIAA Division 2 sectional meet, the Black Hawks ensured themselves of ample representation in this week’s state competition.

Grafton scored 353 points, just nine behind first-place Shorewood, in the 13-team sectional field.

In the process, the Hawks had 11 individual performances and all three of their relays qualify for the state meet in Madison.

“We did well. I was kind of hoping for a certain number of qualifiers, and we did better than that,” Grafton coach John Douglass said.

“It was a great meet for us. The ultimate goal was not getting points or placing, but getting through as many kids as possible.”

CG-Belgium running back another unanimous choice in all-league coaches’ vote; Street tops Ozaukee standouts

After rushing for 2,614 yards and scoring 40 touchdowns last season, Alex Giles was expected to pile up big numbers again this year.

The Cedar Grove-Belgium senior didn’t disappoint, again emerging as one of the area’s top running backs.

Although Giles couldn’t match the totals he compiled as the leader of a team that made a deep run in the 2011 WIAA playoffs, he still left his mark. With 1,615 yards on the ground and 21 touchdowns, Giles was an easy unanimous first-team choice in All-Central Lakeshore Conference voting.

“What Alex did is a testament to his hard work and dedication to our football program,” said Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Chris Zablocki, whose team won its second straight CLC title.
