Winless weekend trip to Mukwonago leaves Port boys searching for answers

A trip to Mukwonago left the Port Washington boys’ soccer team searching for answers last weekend.

Despite staying close to each of three opponents in a two-day tournament, the Pirates came home winless, including being handed a 2-0 loss by Thomas More in the seventh-place game Saturday afternoon.

“We didn’t play very well at all,” said Port coach Mike Bultman, whose team fell to 0-3-1 after opening the season with a tie earlier in the week.

“We played very flat in the first game (a 2-1 loss to Burlington), played much better in the second game (a 1-0 loss to Madison East) and made a lot of mistakes in the last game.

“We have a lot of things to work on.”

In the opening round against Burlington on Friday, the Pirates came out tentative and paid the price.

Burlington took a 1-0 lead when it scored off a free kick in the 20th minute.

Cross-country team starts year with strength in numbers; Dieringer will lead Ozaukee

The Cedar Grove-Belgium girls’ cross-country team is entering the 2012 season loaded with talent.

Seniors Tammi Del Ponte, Chloe Paul and Maria Schueller have all returned, along with juniors Molly Ison, Jericho Duenk and Kiran Seghal and sophomores Lily Paul and Kelly Brochtrup.

Coach Les Paul, who guided the Rockets to the Central Lakeshore Conference title and fouirth place in the WIAA Division 3 state meet, said he expects Del Ponte to give the team strong leadership.

That will be crucial with the loss of Kiera Depies, the squad’s top runner last year, to graduation.

“Tammi is the hardest-working athlete you can want. She had a very good spring track season and a great summer training season,” the coach said.

“We are aiming for a very strong individual effort for her.”

Dozens of intrepid athletes tackled the elements and a challenging course during the third annual City of Seven Hills Triathlon in Port Washington last Saturday morning.

Fischer, who was the top finisher among males ages 30 to 39, posted a time of 1 hour, 3 minutes, 52 seconds, including transition periods between events.

Close behind in a three-way fight for the title were runner-up Eagan Norman of Port Washington and third-place finisher Michael Denzien of Fredonia.

Norman, who placed third overall last year, was clocked at 1:04:31. Denzien finished in 1:04:33.

The top female finisher was Sheboygan resident Khara Schelach (1:08:49).

The winning relay was Team Strohl, consisting of Pam Strohl and Nicole Nelson, both of Port Washington. Their collaborative time was 1:17:047.

A total of 47 people participated in this year’s event, which was organized by the city’s Parks and Recreation Department.
