Justin Peters was one of the main reasons for the Grafton boys basketball team's competitive season in 2016-17.
The senior averaged 13.6 points, 2.4 assists and one steal per game in earning all-North Shore Conference first-team honors and helping the Black Hawks to records of 8-6 in the North Shore and 13-11 overall.
Another key player was senior Tanner Autey, who averaged 10.9 points per game and led the Hawks in assists with 3.4 per contest. Senior Logan Hilgart averaged 8.2 points and paced Grafton in rebounding with 4.8 per game.
Autey and Hilgart were both named honorable-mention all-conference for their efforts.
Senior Ryan Stachurski scored 7.2 points per outing and enjoyed some big games this season as well.
Grafton loses virtually all of its varsity roster in Autey, Stachurski, Peters, Hilgart, Sam Huibregtse, Jason Patt, Jacob Wilkin, Andy Papcke, Ryan Melotik, Quinton Riddle, Jack Birch, Billy Buschman and Darrian Langerman. The lone returnee is Ayden Edmundson.
The Pirates were led by sophomore point guard Adam Baierl with 12.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.1 steals per contest.
Senior Jack Larson averaged 11 points per game, and freshman Evan Lilly was at 9.5 per outing and led the team in 3-point field goals with 44.
All three made honorable-mention all-conference in the North Shore this season.
Senior Oliver Giersch and junior Jordan Gardipee both averaged about 6 points for the Pirates, who were 5-18 overall and 1-13 in the conference.
Port loses Giersch, Larson, Matt Haggenjos and Cam Karnitz.
