With small roster, Pirates will depend on endurance, hustle to be competitive

Numbers will not be on the side of the Port Washington girls’ basketball team this season.

Hustle and endurance will have to be.

With only eight players expected to start the season on the varsity roster, third-year coach Brian Johnson knows his Pirates face a sizeable depth challenge.

“It’s definitely tough but not something we can’t deal with,” Johnson said. “Right now, we’re just taking what’s available.”

Port, which went 6-18 overall and 3-11 in the North Shore Conference last season, will need a productive youth movement to be competitive.

The Pirates’ top players are three seniors who were regular contributors last season — Mikayla Hilton, Kayla McIlree and Stephanie Volesky.

Fast start, medley-relay title propel girls’ team to 3rd place in Division 2 state swimming, diving meet

A fast start wasn’t enough for the Grafton girls’ swimming and diving team to grab top honors in the WIAA state meet in Madison last weekend, but did help the Black Hawks reaffirm their place among the Division 2 elite.

After racing to an early lead, Grafton saw the advantage fade but still emerged with third-place honors in a 38-team field at the University of Wisconsin Natatorium.

Sparked by a record-setting victory in the 200-yard medley relay, the Hawks scored 193 points, well ahead of fourth-place Fort Atkinson’s 133.5.

Shorewood won its sixth state team title and its first since 2003 with 255 points, and Milton was second with 217.

Among other local teams, Port Washington had 18 points, good for a share of 30th place with Catholic Memorial.

“Shorewood was the class of the state in Division 2 this year. I always thought first place would come down to them and Milton,” Grafton coach John Douglass said.

“But I was very pleased with our performance. Heading into the meet, we had us scoring 190 to 230 points, so we were right there.”

The Hawks’ best event finish came in the meet’s first race. The medley team of junior Stephanie Haebig, sophomores Sam Senczyszyn and Rachel Hauer and freshman Natalie Keshemberg combined for a winning time of 1 minute, 48.47 seconds that broke the team record.

The victory, which was good for 40 points, followed a strong Grafton showing in diving. Sophomore Gabby Kraus finished third with 373.85 points, and junior Paige Schommer was sixth (350.25).

Schommer placed 11th at the meet last year, and Kraus was making her first state appearance.

With four of last season’s top players gone, OHS boys rely heavily on Street, Susen

When the Ozaukee High School boys’ basketball team took the court Tuesday, Nov. 13, for its season opener against Milwaukee Messmer, it did so without one of its best-ever players in Eric Hartnett.

In addition to being the Warriors’ all-time scoring leader, Hartnett was among their top career rebounders.

Ozaukee coach Isaiah Ketterhagen knows all too well that the graduation of Hartnett —along with teammates Patrick Kroening, Doug Grimm and Justin St. Peter — leaves big shoes to fill.

“In Eric, we lost a reliable double-double performer every night, and we lost height,” Ketterhagen said.

“In Patrick, Doug and Justin, we lost outside scoring, strong guard play, athleticism and numbers.”

Even so, Ketterhagen has proven talent back to lead the Warriors this season, albeit without depth. As of last week, they had just eight players on their varsity roster, including three sophomores “by necessity,” he said.

Leading Ozaukee’s six letterwinners is senior Steve Street, a 6 foot-6 forward.
