From dual-meet results and Saturday’s conference tournament in Cedarburg, there was no doubt that Slinger had the best wrestling team in the North Shore this season.
Port Washington made sure there was as little debate about second place.
The Pirates scored 157 points to take runner-up honors, ahead of third-place West Bend East’s 144 but well behind champion Slinger’s 228.
Port’s Blake Peiffer (106 pounds) and Lukas Burke (170) each won their second individual conference titles.
Grafton wrestlers Ellis Pfleger (132) and Nick Rapp (160) rolled to their first conference titles after both taking second last year. Teammate Alec Davis (195) came in second.
Grafton, which had only eight wrestlers, placed sixth with 100 points. Four Black Hawks placed in the top four in their weight classes and three made the finals.
TRISTAN GRISWOLD s1020318291 4C“We had a pretty good day. Our conference is much tougher now,” Grafton coach Mike Dodge said.
Port coach Angelo LaRosa said, came back to place in the top two.
“For a little bit we were in fourth. We kind of circled the wagons,” he said.
Peiffer won his semifinal match with a 21-7 technical fall over Cael Pionkowski of West Bend East, and in the final won by a 19-3 technical fall early in the third period over Slinger’s Carter Ziebell.
“Blake just dominated,” LaRosa said. “That was maybe the best he’s looked all year from how he’s moving.”
Burke pinned Cooper O’Keefe of Cedarburg in 1 minute, 22 seconds and in the final scored a 3-1 decision over Jason Dicesare of West Bend West.
“That was a pretty solid kid in the finals. Lukas was in control the whole time,” LaRosa said.

In the second half, the Rockets found their groove a little bit.
“They battled and found ways to the basket,” Ketterhagen said.
The Purple Raiders made 21 of 28 free throws, as the Rockets were forced to foul to try to get back into the game.

CG-Belgium wrestlers get five runner-up finishes on way to 3rd place in conference tournament

Cedar Grove-Belgium struggled to get its wrestling lineup in the optimum weight classes at last Saturday’s Big East Conference tournament, and that weighed heavily on the results.
The Rockets ended up taking third place with 192.5 points. Random Lake won the title with 233 points, and Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah/Howards Grove was second with 206.5.
Host Ozaukee scored 46.5 points to take seventh out of eight teams.
“Stuff didn’t go our way from the get-go,” Rockets coach Trevor Peterson said.
“We struggled to get guys into weights a little bit. With what we were having to do, we knew those weren’t going to be quite the draws we wanted.”
CAEL LARGE s1020318456Five Rockets took second place, and Peterson said all of their losses in the finals came against tough opponents.
At 152 pounds, Bryce Morgan had Random Lake’s Aiden Vandenbush score a reversal with 30 seconds left in the match and lost, 2-0.
