Fullington-led Grafton boys race to five first-place finishes during impressive Madison West Relays show

Championships became second nature to the Grafton boys’ track and field team last Saturday.

Led by a pair of individual wins by Nic Fullington, the Black Hawks raced to five first-place finishes in the annual Madison West Relays at the Camp Randall Sports Center.

Fullington, a junior, dominated the Class B field in the sprints. He won the 55-meter dash (6.67 seconds) and 200 dash (23.42).

“Nic had a great meet,” said Grafton coach Kevin Kriegel, who noted that Fullington set a team indoor record in the 55 dash.

“The big thing for him was that he saw his potential last year, being part of our relays and going to state with all the guys. He’s seen what track can do for him.”

Grafton’s other firsts came from senior Joe Docter in the 400 dash (53.08), senior Alec Weinhold in the 3,200 run (9:49.49) and the 1,600 relay of Joe Fugate, Docter, Ryan Melotik and Sam Miller (3:35.4).

The Hawks’ other scoring finishes were a third by the 800 relay of Fugate, Miller, Melotik and Fullington (1:36.87) and fifth by Miller in the 55 dash (6.81).

The 800 relay won its heat on the way to the final.

Softball team rallies for 12 runs in 6th to get past CG-Belgium in wild game

“Never say die” took on new meaning for the Port Washington High School softball team Monday.

Rallying for 12 runs in the sixth inning, the host Pirates pulled out a 16-10 win over Cedar Grove-Belgium in the season opener for both squads.

Port trailed, 9-4, entering the bottom of the sixth but used a combination of hits, walks and Cedar Grove-Belgium errors to surge ahead.

The Rockets got their final run in the seventh.

The Pirates finished with 14 hits, led by Amanda Kaiser’s 3-for-4 effort. Kate Snook was 2-for-4, and Haley Erlandson had a triple and two RBI.

Snook pitched a complete game for the win, striking out 13 and walking four.

Cedar Grove-Belgium had 10 hits, including two each by Mandi Race and Megan Gonwa.

Pirates’ Kortes to take aim at national bowling honors PDF Print E-mail

Port Washington will have a bowler going after national honors this summer.

Peter Kortes, a senior at Port Washington High School, earned a spot in national competition by winning a qualifying tournament in Fond du Lac on March 15.

Kortes topped a field of 30 male bowlers in the under-20 age group with the highest three-game average.

His first trip to the nationals comes on the heels of a fifth-place finish in boys singles at the Wisconsin High School Bowling Club State Championships in Madison on March 8.

After reaching the final round, Kortes was edged, 257-254, by Kyle Zagar of Kenosha.

Although Kortes didn’t qualify for nationals at the state tournament, he made the cut with his March 15 victory. His reward will be joining 1,000 other bowlers in his age group from throughout the country at the Junior Gold Championships that will be held in July in Dupage County, Ill.

“You’ll have to average 220 to win it,” said Kortes, who averages 210 in league play.

“My goal is to make the top 64. That will probably take a 210 average.”
