Titles from Blake Peiffer, Lukas Burke and Tristan Griswold helped the Port Washington wrestling team claim the North Shore Conference crown on Feb. 3 at Whitefish Bay High School.

The Pirates tallied 249½ points to beat Germantown's 217 points and win the eight-team meet. Germantown had also given Port its toughest battle en route to the NSC dual-meet crown at 7-0.

Peiffer, who was coming off a knee injury, captured the 106-pound crown with a pin of Jake Roden of Cedarburg at 1 minute, 22 seconds in his title match. Peiffer had earlier won by a pin after receiving a first-round bye.

Burke won at 182 pounds with an 8-5 decision over Collin Shea of Nicolet. Burke had posted two earlier pins.

Griswold prevailed at 195 pounds with a 12-6 decision over Alec Davis of Grafton. Griswold, who finished 10-0 in the North Shore, had notched a second-round pin after taking a bye.

Port collected four second places: Oliver Rosado at 120 pounds, Brett Grisar at 138, Anthony Masters at 145 and Sal Gauthier at 152.

The Pirates also had four third places: Tanner Meinel (126), Preston Makoutz (132), Michael Murphy (160) and Aaron Steffen (220).

Fourth places went to Chad Spaeth (113) and Josh Holtebeck (170), and heavyweight Cody Lewis came in fifth.

Port will next wrestle in a WIAA Division 1 regional meet at 9:15 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 11, at Cedarburg. The top four competitors in each weight class will advance to a sectional meet on Saturday, Feb. 18, at Slinger.
