The Port Washington boys’ tennis team had one player advance to the third round of the North Shore Conference tournament last week.

At No. 1 singles, Port’s Aaron Montreal lost to Homestead’s Michael Morway, 6-2, 6-0 in the first round and defeated Jack Miller of West Bend West, 6-4, 4-6, 11-0, in the second.

In the third round, Montreal lost to West Bend East’s Michael Seaman, 6-1, 6-0.

“Aaron showed how perseverance and motivation allowed him to stay focused to beat West Bend West in a close third-set tie-breaker to continue on day three,” Port coach Melonie Zielinski said.

“Aaron fought against strong winds but fell to West Bend East.”

At No. 4 singles, the Pirates’ Isaac Welton made it to the second round.

In the first round, Welton beat Mike Willms of Grafton, 6-1, 6-1. In the second round, he lost to Slinger’s Jamie Melius, 6-0, 6-0.

Port placed sixth as a team.

In the Pirates’ other first-round conference matches, No. 2 singles player Kyle Zacher lost to Jack Mundinger of West Bend West, 6-0, 6-0. At No. 3 singles, Jake Schmit lost to George Seaman, 6-2, 6-0.

At No. 1 doubles, Thomas Garant and Neil Schlessinger of Port lost to Josiah Tamsen and Jarrett Desautel of Grafton, 6-3, 6-0.

At No. 2, Grafton’s Carter Day and Matt Fischer defeated the Pirates’ Matt Huebner and Skylar Shafer, 6-1, 6-0.

At No. 3, Ryan Jaques and Spencer Krumhus of Slinger beat Port’s Cale Theis and Bryce Bertler, 6-2, 3-6, 10-0.

In the Kohler quadrangular tournament last Friday and Saturday, Port went 0-3. The Pirates lost to Catholic Memorial, 7-0; Regis, 5-2; and Kohler, 6-1.

Against Regis, Port got wins at No. 1 singles from Montreal, who beat Nati Raehl, 6-3, 6-0; and at No. 4 singles from Welton, who beat Keaton Comero, 3-6, 7-6 (4), 10-3.

“He used powerful serves to ace his opponents and short angles to win the match,” Zielinski said of Welton.

Against Kohler, Schmit rallied to beat George Palof, 0-6, 7-5, 12-10, at No. 3 singles. “He was able to use key placement shots to finish out multiple points of 60 ball rallies,” Zielinski said.

This week, Port was scheduled to play in a WIAA subsectional Monday but the meet was postponed to Tuesday due to rain.
