Fourth-year talent abounds for Nennig-led Hawks as they fight for honors in North Shore Conference, beyond

Seniority will be the name of the game for Grafton boys’ swimming and diving this season.

One year after entering pool wars with a junior-laden lineup, the Black Hawks find themselves loaded with fourth-year talent.

“About half of our roster is seniors. It’s nice to have that kind of leadership,” said Mark Minz, who’s in his 11th season as Grafton’s head coach.

“We’ve got a lot of experience and talent with this group.”

Topping the Hawks’ skills list is senior Al Nennig. A three-year state qualifier, he shined in last season’s WIAA Division 2 finals by winning the 50-yard freestyle, taking second in the 100 breaststroke and contributing to top-eight finishes in 200 and 400 freestyle relays.

Nennig holds all but three Grafton records in individual races and is a member of both of its fastest freestyle relays.

The Ozaukee girls’ basketball team scored a split decision in its first two games of the season last week.

After posting a hard-fought win over Mayville in nonconference play, the Warriors were edged by Howards Grove, 44-38, in their Central Lakeshore Conference opener Nov. 29.

When Howards Grove came to town, Ozaukee probably felt like it was playing in the land of the giants.

The Tigers’ starting lineup features 6-foot Hayley Rickmeier and 5-10 Brittany Wehrmann, who combined for 28 points.

Ozaukee’s tallest starter is 5-7 center Emily Thome.

“Howards Grove controlled the boards with their height advantage,” Ozaukee coach Lee LeMahieu said. “But defensively, we forced 27 turnovers and had 18 steals.”

Senior’s strong all-around game leads Ozaukee boys to easy win over Christian

A huge all-around game by Steve Street propelled the Ozaukee boys’ basketball team to a big comeback win over Sheboygan Christian in the Central Lakeshore Conference opener for both squads Nov. 20.

Street, a senior center, had a double-double with 20 points and 14 rebounds and added seven blocks, five steals and three assists as the host Warriors scored a 52-35 win.

“Steve had a heck of a game. He affected all facets of the game with his length and athleticism,” said Ozaukee coach Isaiah Ketterhagen, whose team improved to 2-0 overall.

Despite Street’s strong effort, the Warriors got off to a slow start.

“We struggled in the first half, and Christian did a nice job of taking advantage of our mistakes and forcing us into mistakes,” Ketterhagen said.


The Warriors trailed, 11-8, at the end of the first quarter. A 10-6 scoring edge in the second period gave Ozaukee an 18-17 lead at halftime.

In the third quarter, the Warriors took charge by outscoring the Eagles, 13-2. Street had eight points during the run.

“I was disappointed with our first-half defense, and we talked about executing at halftime,” Ketterhagen said.
