Deep, talented Random Lake team flexes its wrestling muscles in impressive Central Lakeshore Conference win over Ozaukee


Just how intense was the high school wrestling meet between Ozaukee and Random Lake last week?

Three weight classes had 2011 state qualifiers squaring off — and each squad may have at least that many heading back to Madison this year.

In a rematch of longtime rivals Jan. 19, the Rams dominated host Ozaukee, 43-17, likely on their way to another Central Lakeshore Conference title.

“We got handled. Random Lake is tough. They’re legit,” Ozaukee coach Luke Gundrum said.NATHAN SLEIK-VIDMAR of Port Washington drove Cedarburg’s Max Stankey to the mat on the way to a 10-2 victory Jan. 19. Port won the North Shore Conference meet, 61-14. Photo by Sam Arendt

The Warriors managed five match wins, the most convincing of which was Kevin Beckmann’s 16-1 technical fall over Tony Sanfelippo at 152 pounds.

Ozaukee’s other wins included Logan Smith (126) over Trent Gottsacker, 5-4; Ethan Brouillette (138) over Brady Schmidt, 6-5; Alex Thill (160) over Andrew Gatz, 6-4; and Dan Zimmer (182) over Jake Schwan, 15-12, in double overtime in the final match of the night.

“Alex gritted out a double-overtime match. It kind of ended on an OK note,” Gundrum said.

After strong start, Port boys hang on to edge Cedarburg for NSC win that snaps five-game skid


Cedarburg’s Dave Shepard launched a desperation three-pointer that fell short at the buzzer, and the Port Washington boys’ basketball team breathed a collective sigh of relief.

“We just needed a win,” Port coach John Bunyan said after seeing the host Pirates hold off Cedarburg, 40-38, in a ragged North Shore Conference game last Friday.

“Offensively, we missed a lot of shots and had some scoring lulls. But we also played some tough defense, which helped us win it.”

Port, which evened its NSC record at 3-3 and won for the first time since Dec. 16, couldn’t get its offense on track but never trailed. The Pirates led by as many as 11 points — at 21-10 late in the first half — only to have Cedarburg (1-5) hang around long enough to make things interesting.

Shepard, a senior forward, carried most of the offensive load for the Bulldogs. He scored eight of his team-high 19 points in the third quarter when Cedarburg cut a 21-12 halftime deficit to 28-24.

The Pirates pulled away again in the final period and owned a 38-33 lead when Zach Hauser made two free throws with 1:17 to play. However, Shepard drilled a three-pointer to lead another rally that pulled Cedarburg within 39-38 with 12 seconds left.

After Joey Burbach made one of two foul shots to give Port a 40-38 edge, Cedarburg had to go the length of the court with eight seconds to play. Port used two quick fouls to force the  Bulldogs to inbound the ball twice more before Shepard’s 28-foot shot at the horn came up well short.

The Pirates could have won the game more easily if they had gotten in sync offensively. Missed layups and turnovers helped fuel Cedarburg comebacks. Shepard was the only player to score in double figures for the Bulldogs, but they also got two key second-half baskets from Stephen Sakmar, who finished with eight points.

Burbach helped Port survive with a 17-point effort that included a trio of three-point baskets and six points in the final period.

Senior’s strong all-around game gives Grafton girls much-need lift in NSC win


Hannah Eichler was due for a breakout night.

And the Grafton girls’ basketball team was more than happy to have the senior guard hit her stride last Friday with a strong all-around performance that sparked a much-needed win over Milwaukee Lutheran.HALEY ORLOWSKI dribbled past a Milwaukee Lutheran defender in the Grafton girls’ 66-28 win last Friday.

In addition to scoring a game-high 17 points, Eichler had nine rebounds, five steals and four assists as the Black Hawks pounded out a 66-38 victory.

“We’ve just been waiting for Hannah to take over a game this season,” said Grafton coach Bob Maronde, whose team improved to 4-2 in North Shore Conference play.

“She’s done it in spurts, but this was the first time she had a really complete game. It was good to see.”

Eichler’s hustle at both ends of the court helped key a comeback for the Hawks, who trailed, 12-11, after one quarter before taking control.

“We were real tentative on offense early in the game,” Maronde said. “We were coming off a tough game earlier in the week (a loss to Hartford), and our confidence was a little bit shaken.
