Junior gives Grafton two wins in NSC meet dominated by Cedarburg

For the most part, suspense was short-lived at the North Shore Conference girls’ swimming and diving meet last Saturday.

As expected, defending champion Cedarburg had no trouble capturing another crown, piling up 533 points as it dominated a seven-team field at the Port Washington-Saukville School District Aquatic Center.

Not only did the Bulldogs sail past runner-up Homestead, which had 366.5 points, they won seven of 12 events and set six pool records.

Nicolet was third with 356 points, followed by Germantown (330), Grafton (293), Whitefish Bay (258.5) and Port Washington (68).

The predictability of excellence wasn’t limited to Cedarburg, either. Grafton’s Autumn Haebig lived up to her status as one of the area’s premier swimmers by winning two individual events in the NSC final for the third straight year.

The junior placed first in the 500-yard freestyle (5 minutes, 8.07 seconds) and 100 backstroke (a pool-record 57.89).

Haebig also helped Grafton secure a pair of second-place relay finishes. Those came from the 200 medley team of Haebig, Emma O’Brien, Natalie Keshemberg and Mallory Fox (1:53.01) and the 400 freestyle team of Fox, Keshemberg, O’Brien and Haebig (3:41.44).

In the medley relay, the Hawks were  edged by Cedarburg, which won in 1:52.72.

“In a meet like this, it all comes down to numbers,” said Grafton coach John Douglass, whose team didn’t have the depth to stay in the overall title chase.

“I can stack my top three or four swimmers up against anyone else’s, but a team like Cedarburg has 30 kids. We have 12.”

Fox, a junior, had the Hawks’ two other second-place finishes, in the 50 freestyle (24.97) and 100 freestyle (54.07).

First-half deficit too much for CG-Belgium in loss to Shoreland Lutheran that dashes WIAA playoff hopes

The family that is Cedar Grove-Belgium High School football walked off its home field in sobs after exchanging hugs last Friday, indicative of the way the season came to a close.

The Rockets had scoring opportunities deep in opposing territory and could have turned a rough first half into a victory, but it was Shoreland Lutheran that made more plays and prevailed, 21-14, in a WIAA Division 5 second-round game.

Cedar Grove-Belgium fell behind, 21-0, by halftime and the statistics weren’t even that close.

Lutheran ran 40 plays to the Rockets’ 22, never punted, racked up 200 yards rushing and dominated time of possession, 17:30 to 6:30.

Then came the third quarter. Top-seeded Cedar Grove-Belgium took the kickoff, drove for a touchdown, forced a punt and drove and scored again.

Game on.

“We just played our hearts out,” junior wide receiver and cornerback Reid Hilbelink said as tears rolled down his cheeks. “We knew it could be our last half.”

Three fourth downs and two more key plays, one eerily similar to a famous play in a Super Bowl, defined the night.

With less than five minutes left, the Rockets drove to the Lutheran 1-yard line and were on the doorstep of a 21-21 tie. But running back Adam Gonwa was hit and fumbled, and the Pacers recovered.

Ison leads CG-Belgium in Division 2 final; other local boys, girls cap strong seasons 

The Cedar Grove-Belgium boys’ cross-country team came from nowhere to crack the top 10, and Random Lake/Ozaukee’s Elise Large picked a perfect time to run a personal best in the girls’ race at the WIAA Division 2 state meet last Saturday.

Led by Ian Ison’s 21st-place run, the Rockets scored 240 points in the 16-team boys’ field.

Ison, a junior, posted a time of 17 minutes, 12.35 seconds among 150 runners on a muddy, 5,000-meter race at The Ridges Golf Course in Wisconsin Rapids.

Sophomore Stephen Lavey was close behind in 17:13.48, good for 22nd place among runners on complete teams.

Cedar Grove-Belgium’s other scoring finishers were senior Peter Merritt in 38th (17:33.69), sophomore Eric Isken in 72nd (18:23.79) and freshman Bryce Ketterhagen in 87th (18:45.49).

Also for the Rockets, sophomore Russell McConnohie was 90th (18:59.58) and freshman Quinn Hoopman was 102nd (19:27.67). 

Pewaukee won the team championship with 85 points, edging runner-up Wisconsin Lutheran (102), which fell short in a bid for three straight titles.

“It was a great meet,” Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Les Paul said.
