Young CG-B softball team still striving for consistency after dividing league twin bill

Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Scott Soerens’ softball team is doing what youth often does: blowing hot and cold.

The Rockets went 2-2 in Central Lakeshore Conference play last week, looking sharp at times and struggling on occasion.

Last Friday, the Rockets split a home doubleheader with Howards Grove, scoring a 3-2 win before losing, 13-8.

Earlier in the week, Cedar Grove-Belgium lost to Random Lake on April 16 and defeated Oostburg on April 14.

“I think it kind of shows the youth of this team,” said Soerens, whose squad started this week with a 2-3 league record.

“We had three freshmen and two sophomores starting, and most of our seniors haven’t had a whole lot of experience starting.

“Focus is something they talked about. Sometimes if you sit back on your heels too much, a play gets by you that shouldn’t.”

A clutch win in the final match lifted the Port Washington boys’ tennis team to a 4-3 victory over Howards Grove in a nonconference meet Monday.

Port also got a 6-1, 6-0 win from the No. 2 duo of Jack Larson and Charles Schlessinger.

In singles, the Pirates got wins from Jimmy Clarke at No. 2 and Ethan Hoag at No. 4.

Clarke prevailed in a 6-4, 7-5 battle with Keegan Rhynns.

Strong individual performances put CG-Belgium boys, girls among top three teams at Oostburg Invite

Strong individual performances carried the Cedar Grove-Belgium boys’ and girls’ track and field teams to third-place honors at the Oostburg Invitational last Friday.

Sparked by Aaron Chier’s two sprint victories, the boys scored 74 points, good for a share of third with Kewaskum in the 12-team meet.

Chier, a senior, won the 100-meter dash in 11.77 seconds and the 200 dash in 22.97.

He also ran the second leg of a first-place 400 relay (46.47) that also included Derek Arndt, Taylor Heiden and Reid Hilbelink.

Kiel won the boys’ team championship with 151 points, well ahead of runner-up St. Mary’s Springs’ 96.

Ozaukee was ninth with 29 points.

Cedar Grove-Belgium also got a first from sophomore Ian Ison in the 1,600 run (4:48.66).

Rounding out the Rockets’ top-four finishes were a second by Stephen Lavey in the 3,200 run (10:44.67); thirds by Heiden in the 100 dash (12.29) and the 3,200 relay of Ethan Brochtrup, Lavey, Ison and Peter Merritt (9:08.24); and fourth by Merritt in the 800 run (2:11.01).

“We are a little out of practice, but the relays had solid performances after being put together outside for the first time,” Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Les Paul said.

“Overall, it was a good first outdoor meet. There were a lot of times we can use to plan for the end of the season.”

The Ozaukee boys were led by third-place finishes by Elijah Mabry in the high jump (5 feet, 6 inches) and Keegan Richards in the discus (130-9).
