Senior’s record-setting swim wins set the pace for GHS at Small School Invite

A middle-of-the-pack team finish didn’t reflect several outstanding performances by the Grafton boys’ swimming and diving squad at the Small School State Invitational in
Shorewood last Saturday.

Although the Black Hawks had to settle for seventh place in the overall standings, they received a pair of wins from senior Al Nennig and two seconds in relay races.

Nennig raced to first in the 200-yard individual medley (1 minute, 56.26 seconds) and 100 backstroke (52.04). Both times broke his own team records.

Grafton got runner-up finishes from the 200 medley team of Bailey Bodart, Nennig, Kieran Paddock and Ben Gosselin (1:43.8) and the 200 freestyle team of Gosselin, Paddock,
Brad Kempka and Nennig (1:30.98).

“We did pretty well. I knew that we would be up against some strong competition,” said Grafton coach Mark Minz, whose squad was seventh with 183 points in an 18-team field.

“Al had a great day, and all our relays swam well.”

Scrappy Pirates slowed by inconsistent play in loss to hard-nosed Highlanders

Backing down was not a problem for the Port Washington boys’ basketball team last Friday night.

Matching up with a bigger, more athletic opponent was another matter.

Although the host Pirates did their best to stay in contention, they couldn’t overcome a slow start against a talented Homestead team, which pounded out a 68-49 win in a North Shore Conference game.

“We wanted to come out and match Homestead’s intensity and execute offensively,” Port coach Brian Hebein said.

“We never backed down, but we had some breakdowns that hurt us.”

Port, which was handed a 74-42 loss at Homestead in December, showed more fight in the rematch. However, the Pirates couldn’t climb out of a 13-6 hole at the end of the first quarter.

When the Ozaukee girls’ basketball team traveled to Sheboygan Christian last Friday, most Central Lakeshore Conference fans probably thought the visiting Warriors were heavy favorites.

However, the host Eagles put up a strong fight before Ozaukee eked out a 34-33 victory.

“This was a very competitive and exciting game,” Warriors coach Lee LeMahieu said. “Both teams played hard and played well defensively.

“We didn’t shoot well but managed to escape with the win.”

The game was close throughout as the Warriors struggled on offense.

Ozaukee led, 7-6, after one quarter and held a 15-12 edge at halftime. Christian fought back to tie the score in the third quarter, which ended in a 27-27 deadlock.
