Grafton boys hold their own in 1,600, 3,200 races among international elite

Setting foot on a big stage did little to intimidate five members of the Grafton boys’ track and field team last weekend.

Instead, the Black Hawks embraced their opportunity and posted season-best times in a pair of races at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia.


Competing against elite high school runners from throughout North America and the Caribbean, Grafton got solid  efforts from the 1,600-meter relay of Matt Salm, Sam Miller, Patrick Tobianski and Erick Huertas and the 3,200 relay of Salm, Tobianski, Alec Weinhold and Huertas.


The 1,600 relay raced to second place in an 11-team heat in 3 minutes, 23.21 seconds. A team from Amherst, Mass., was first in 3:23.14.


In the 3,200 race, the Hawks’ 8:01.32 clocking was good for fifth in a 17-team heat. The winning time by a Blacksburg, Va., team was 7:49.89.


Huertas ran the fastest legs for Grafton, anchoring the 1,600 team in 49.06 and the 3,200 team in 1:55.65.


Although neither team was fast enough to advance, the boys received medals commemorating their participation in America’s oldest and largest track and field meet.


In the overall standings, Grafton placed 41st out of 525 teams in the 1,600 and 31st among 71 teams in the 3,200.  


“It was a great trip, well worth it,” said Grafton coach Kevin Kriegel, who accompanied the runners along with sprints coach Mike Maney.


“The guys ran really well. It was something they will always remember.”


Last weekend marked the first time since 2005 that the Hawks participated in the Penn Relays, which are held at Franklin Field. Grafton was the only Wisconsin high school with athletes in this year’s meet.


In addition to having to achieve qualifying times, athletes are responsible for their own transportation, lodging, meals and other expenses on the four-day, three-night venture.

The boys had eight first-place finishes and topped a four-team field with 96 points.

Heavy workload doesn’t keep Ozaukee soccer team from taking tournament title

A heavy workload failed to keep the Ozaukee girls’ soccer team from a well-earned payoff last Saturday.

Despite playing their fourth game in five days, the Warriors emerged with top honors in a four-team tournament at Port Washington.


After battling the host Pirates to a 1-1 tie through regulation and two overtime periods, Ozaukee emerged with a 4-2 win on penalty kicks.


“I’m proud of the effort we showed,” Warriors coach Eric Liebergen said.


“I’m sure we had tired legs, but no one complained.”


Port grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first half when Sarah Spaeth scored off a pass from Maria Ehrlich.


In the 65th minute, Ozaukee drew even with a goal by Bridget Hoffmann.


In the tie-breaker, the Warriors converted all four of their shots, with Lizzie Janke, Haley Gabriel, Kaylee Klopp and Bridget Hoffmann finding the net.


Port got scores from Allison Lessila and Breanna Schnell but had one shot hit the post and another stopped by Klopp from her keeper position.


“I thought we did a good job against Ozaukee,” Pirates coach Mike Bultman said.

Perennial softball power’s fast start put hit on Grafton; Port loses twice in NSC play

A perennially tough softball team got the best of the Grafton Black Hawks in nonconference play last week.

Oakfield, which is consistently among the state’s small-school powers, jumped ahead early and cruised past host Grafton, 11-2, on April 24.


“We knew Oakfield would be very good. They’re always near the top in the state,” Hawks coach Ken Hunt said.


Oakfield grabbed a 2-0 lead in the third inning and broke the game open with a six-run third.


After Grafton pulled within 8-2 in its half of the third, the Oaks responded with two runs in the fourth and another run in the seventh.


Each team finished with five hits. Samm Maglio led the Hawks with a 2-for-4 effort.


Teammate Kate Lennon was 1-for-3 with a run-scoring double.


Freshman pitcher Ally Parsons took the loss. She worked the first four innings, striking out one and walking 10.
