South’s swim team won an invitational for the first time since 2013 by claiming the seven-school Port Washington Invite on Dec. 18.

Although South did not win any events, one of the highlights came in the 50-yard freestyle.

Aidan Crimmins finished runner-up in a time of 24.33 seconds and third went to teammate Tyler Weser (25.21).

“We won with depth,” coach Peter Toutenhoofd said. “It was an awesome group effort.”


North defeats South

The Golden Raiders overcame their only loss of the season (at Green Bay Notre Dame) by beating the visiting Redwings, 88-63, on Dec. 18.

Max Tutas scored 34 points and Luke Schmidt added 25 for North, which used a 48-31 second half to pull away.

“Max and Luke were huge for us throughout the game,” coach Eric Worth said. “Both guys did a nice job creating turnovers, which led to some easy buckets for us. I liked our intensity throughout and thought our guys came ready to play.

“Overall, I’m very pleased with the way we played and I’m excited about our group.”

North’s next game is against Plymouth on Wednesday as part of the Raider Shootout.

Redwings also rebound

South overcame the loss to North by beating New Holstein on Dec. 20 and Mishicot the following day. The Redwings, who are off until Jan. 4, already have four wins after having a total of one last season.


That winning feeling

After a 1-8 start, Sheboygan won back-to-back games for the first time Dec. 17 and 21.

In a 7-1 win against Appleton last Tuesday, Zach Tuzinkewich scored twice and six others also got a goal. Will Kapic had one to go with three assists, and goalie Zane Vande Hay made 25 saves.

Vande Hay stopped all 24 shots in a 4-0 win over Cedarburg on Dec. 17.
