Four individual champions help Pirates slip past Cedarburg to win 12th consecutive league team title

That Port Washington won its 12th straight team championship in North Shore Conference wrestling last Saturday was no great surprise.

The Pirates’ slim margin of victory in the eight-team tournament at Homestead High School was a bit eye-opening, though.

“It was definitely tight all day,” said Port coach Angelo LaRosa, whose squad scored 201.5 points to slip past second-place Cedarburg (195).

“We were without several guys and needed every point we got. Everyone else had to step up.”

Port had four individual championships, with freshman Manny Rosado (106 pounds) and seniors Nate Schnell (145), Josh Meins (170) and Tyler Brown (182)
taking top honors.

However, injuries robbed the Pirates of standouts Zach Smith (120), Eli Rosado (138), Brandon Fleischman (152) and Quentin Lueck (160) and forced
LaRosa to juggle his lineup.

Nennig, teammates set three records as Hawks grab 3rd at conference meet

Mark Minz was an especially happy swimming coach last Saturday at Whitefish Bay High School.

After seeing his Grafton boys’ team turn in three record-setting performances  on the way to third place in a talent-laden North Shore Conference meet, it’s easy to see why.

“I was very pleased. The guys rose to the occasion and performed very well,” said Minz, whose squad scored 317 points to edge fourth-place Whitefish Bay (308) in the seven-team standings.

“It was an excellent meet for us.”

As expected, powerhouse Cedarburg cruised to the team title, piling up 537 points. Homestead was a distance second with 325 points.

Rounding out the standings were fifth-place Nicolet (302 points), Port Washington (122) and Milwaukee Lutheran (113).

Late scoring drought, defensive breakdowns sting GHS boys in loss to Nicolet

The road through the North Shore Conference continues to be a tough trek for the Grafton boys’ basketball team.

Although the Black Hawks have shown improvement this season, they stumbled again on the way to a pair of defeats last week.

On Friday, Grafton saw a fourth-quarter drought take its toll in a 66-48 home loss to Nicolet.

The Hawks held a 29-28 lead at halftime and trailed by only 48-44 entering the final period. However, Nicolet pulled away by outscoring them, 18-4, the rest of the way.

“If we could play a 24 or 25-minute game, we would be great,” said Grafton coach Bob Maronde, whose team was handed its fourth straight loss and fell to 3-9 in NSC play and 5-13 overall.
