Determined Grafton boys ride big 2nd quarter to hard-fought win over Port in North Shore showdown

Fortunately for the Grafton boys’ basketball team, games are longer than one quarter.

Coach Bob Maronde’s squad found itself down early at home in a showdown with North Shore Conference rival Port Washington last Friday.

But teamwork and determination helped Grafton overcome the deficit and score a 55-44 victory.

“I was extremely pleased with the way my team played,” Maronde said.

“It seemed like the first time this season, we played together like a team. Port hit some shots early and we missed some shots, putting us down, 9-2, but I wasn't
worried.

“I could tell the guys knew what we had to do, and they did it.”

Port coach Brian Hebein called the showdown “an extremely physical contest on both sides.”

“It was a classic Port-Grafton game where everyone was diving for loose balls.”

Port started the game poised and took an 11-6 lead into the second quarter.

Grafton girls use tough defense to take control in impressive NSC victory

The girls’ teams from Grafton and Port Washington may have been billed as the open act for a coed basketball doubleheader last Friday, but host Grafton showed it
was intent on being the headliner.

The result was a 46-21 win for the Black Hawks.

“Nothing we do comes easy,” said Grafton coach Steve Reinhardt, whose team rolled to its third consecutive win.

“We played great team defense in the first three quarters, and that took the wind out of Port.”

Grafton played a steady game from the start, taking an 11-5 lead by the end of the first quarter.

The Hawks continued to play dogged defense the rest of the half and held a 20-7 lead at intermission.

Even with injuries, illness, Port wrestling team sticks it to Germantown in NSC meet

Once the Port Washington High School wrestling team gets healthy, look out.

Despite having to battle through an illness-ridden season, the Pirates have their sights set on another North Shore Conference title.

On Jan. 10, Port dismantled Germantown, 57-21, for an impressive home victory.

“A lot of guys are wrestling really well right now. Some guys that aren’t in the varsity lineup stepped up,” Pirates coach Angelo LaRosa said.

Germantown was expected to be one of Port’s toughest challenges in its quest to win a 12th straight NSC team title.

The Pirates got pins from Nick Michalowski (106 pounds), Manny Rosado (113), John Wick (120), Noah Rosado (126), Brandon Moeller (138), Quinten Lueck (160), Josh Meins (170) and Tyler Brown (182).

Meins, a senior, was honored at the meet for earning his 100th career victory at the Cheesehead Invitational the previous week.
