Nicolet High School wrestlers lost their first home conference dual against Port Washington Thursday at Nicolet. Inexperience was the main factor in the 60-3 defeat to the perennial North Shore conference powers. Senior Jon McKay had the lone victory in the tilt for Nicolet but he felt that the team battled well with such a tough opponent and would have a good shot at beating the Pirates in the conference tournament in February.

Dave and Cindy Dieringer prepare to send son, Alex, off to Oklahoma State for the start of his collegiate wrestling career.
Alex Dieringer, who graduated from Port High this year, will head to Oklahoma State this week to start his collegiate wrestling career on a full-ride athletic scholarship. Dieringer was heavily recruited during high school as he was ranked the number one 145-pounder in the nation. He will "red-shirt" his first year and hopes to concentrate on his studies as he practices with the team. Dieringer started wrestling in second grade and soon found a combination of hard work and natural talent that propelled him to many national championships, three high school state crowns and many others honors during his career. Dieringer's older brother Andy, and younger brothers Tyler and Jordon, have all wrestled since a young age and have enjoyed very …

Port Washington decimated the field in Saturday's wrestling tournament in Germantown. Nicolet's McKay wins at 215 and Henry Dixon grabs Whitefish Bay title at 189.
If there was a victory lane at the Germantown High School gym, it would have been snarled in a traffic jam consisting only of Port Washington wrestlers on Saturday at the North Shore Conference wrestling tournament. The Pirates won eight weight classes and finished second in three others to pile up 284 points, ahead of rival Germantwon (252.5). Nicolet's John McKay won the 215-pound class as the Knights finished sixth with 101.5 points. Senior Alex Dieringer was, not surprisingly, the Pirates' most dominating wrestler. He won state titles at 103 pounds as a freshman and 140 last year. In the NSC meet, he competed at 152 and hardly broke a sweat. After a bye in the first round, Dieringer pinned Brendan Hanrahan from Whitefish Bay in 21 …

The Pirates have won both the dual title and conference title the past 10 years. The Pirates were mechanical and made few mistakes on Tuesday, recording three pins in less than a minute. “We’ve been practicing hard and that can be taxing,” said Pirates coach Angelo LaRosa, who is in his fifth year with Port Washington. “This is the time we’ve got to look towards regionals, and we’ve got to peak for that.” The first match of the evening featured Tyler Griswold at 215 pounds. Griswold took down his opponent, got two points on a reversal before pinning him …
