Attendees at the Pirates vs. Black Hawks game at Port Washington High School on Friday night set aside rivalries in order to remember deceased Grafton player.
In its first game since the death of teammate Josh Davis-Joiner, the Grafton boys basketball team was met on Friday with support rather than the typical rivalry that fills the Port Washington High School gymnasium when the two teams meet. In memory of the 17-year-old Grafton High School senior, who died during basketball practice Jan. 16, the Port Washington audience showed up dressed in the competitor's color: orange. "We've been really pleased with how Port Washington supported us during that game," Grafton High School Principal Ken McCormick said.

Not since 2002 has a Port Washington High School athlete received the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association 1st-team All-State honors, but Zach Hauser has earned it.
Port Washington High School senior Zach Hauser almost didn’t play football. In fact, if it weren’t for Tania Switon, his mother, he probably wouldn’t have. He began in fifth grade, and nearly refused to stick it out — fearing he might hurt someone. He pleaded with his mother after practice one day to let him quit. “The motto always was, if you start something – you finish it,” she said. “If you feel the same way after the season you can stop.” A few games into that fifth grade season, Hauser sprung into action.
