The Grafton High School baseball team may not have come out on top Monday, but coach Brian Durst found encouragement in giving the state’s best team a run for its money.
The Black Hawks grabbed a two-run lead at home over West Bend West before the undefeated Spartans came back to claim their 12th North Shore Conference victory, 4-2.
“It was a really well-played high school baseball game, a great game for the fans to watch and also a great game for both teams to be in,” Durst said.
“West hasn’t had many challenge them this year.”
Grafton’s Haden Fisk was back from injury and threw four shutout innings, including stranding a runner at third base and two more after the leadoff hitter reached.

Zack Merkle walked and Lucas Gosewehr followed with an RBI double to left. John Kluck walked to load the bases, and Drew Donahue hit an RBI sac fly.
The Spartans then got their bats going, tying the game in the top of the fifth.

League soccer coaches reward CG-Belgium duo by naming them to first team

Jessica Rose and Haleigh Bares served as leaders for Cedar Grove-Belgium High School’s soccer team all year, and they fittingly led the Rockets’ post-season honors.
Both were chosen to the Big East All-Conference first team. Haven Minick earned honorable mention.
Rose, a junior team captain, scored 23 goals and had 18 assists.
“Jessica would often stay late after practice to put the extra work in. Hence the improved play, offensive influence and output this year,” coach Elias Garza said.
orange chick“She’s a pacey, dynamic player who could hold the ball and play with her back to the goal, finish with either foot, attack balls out of the air or put the opponent under difficulty with her speed. Going from honorable mention last year as a sophomore to first-team all-conference player as a junior speaks volumes about the body of work for Jessica this year.”
Bares scored 18 goals and had 20 assists in her senior season. Garza said she is an all-around player with no weaknesses.
“Haleigh patrolled and controlled the center of the pitch for us. She played both sides of the ball aggressively, skillfully and with great soccer I.Q. Whether dropping into the holding mid or pushing into the attacking center-mid position, Haleigh’s impact on the team play was monumental,” he said.
