Strong show at annual invitational boosts Grafton with key meets coming up

Four first-place finishes kept the Grafton boys’ track and field squad in the running for top team honors at its annual Black Hawk Invitational last Friday.

Powered by three wins in races and another in the discus, the host Black Hawks scored 109.5 points.

Grafton trailed only Ashwaubenon, which won the championship with 181 points. Whitefish Bay was third with 100.5 points.

The Hawks’ wins came from Spencer Ortyn in the 400-meter dash (54.19 seconds), Alec Weinhold in the 1,500 run (4:14.86), Max Jensen in the 3,200 run (10:19.19) and Nick Franzen in the discus (133 feet, 6 inches).

Grafton got second-place finishes from Isaiah West in the shot put (42-8), Despot Gligorevic in the discus (129-10) and the 400 relay of Joe Fugate, Sam Miller, Max Lerret and Nic Fullington (45.18).

“It was our best meet of the year as far as team finishes go,” said Grafton coach Kevin Kriegel, whose girls’ squad placed third in its portion of the meet.

“We had a number of good performances with first, second and third places. It’s good momentum for us for the end of the season with conference, regionals and hopefully sectionals.”

The Hawks’ other top-four efforts included thirds by Fullington in the 100 dash (11.24), Gordy Thompson in the 3,200 run (10:41.79), Gligorevic in the shot put (39-1-1/4), the 1,600 relay of Fullington, Ryan Melotik, Weinhold and Miller (3:29.65) and the 3,200 relay of Thompson, Noah Vaculik, Connor Amundson and Jensen (8:58.62) and fourths by Melotik in the triple jump (37-5) and the 800 relay of Lerret, Derek Zehetner, Melotik and Joe Docter (1:37.56).

Rounding out the team standings were St. Francis in fourth place with 58 points, followed by Milwaukee Morse/Marshall (48), Milwaukee Messmer (28), Milwaukee Madison (11) and Milwaukee Washington (4).

Janke, Bares lead way as Warriors stretch win streak in pursuit of conference title

The Central Lakeshore Conference title beat continued last week for the Ozaukee girls’ soccer team.

With a 4-1 road win over Cedar Grove-Belgium on May 14, the Warriors improved to 9-1 in CLC play, good for a share of first place with Howards Grove.

Emily Janke and Brooke Bares each had two goals for Ozaukee, which scored its eighth straight win in the conference and 10th consecutive victory overall.

The Warriors held a 1-0 lead until the 43rd minute, when A.J. Caldwell scored with an assist from Brooke Morales to pull Cedar Grove-Belgium even.

However, Ozaukee took control with three unanswered goals.

Emma Yanke was credited with an assist for the Warriors, and goalkeeper Autumn Smith had six saves.

“Our defense did a solid job in the second half of limiting clean looks to our goal,” said Ozaukee coach Eric Liebergen, whose team improved to 12-2-1 overall.
