Chicks that Kick s1101617026Members of the Grafton High School girls’ soccer team and their backers have again pitched in to help fight breast cancer. The Black Hawks, who hosted their annual Chicks That Kick to Cure game, presented a check in October for $1,640 to Team Phoenix, an organization that provides breast-cancer survivors with physical and psychological assistance. The team sold fan T-shirts, bracelets and baked goods and held a Miracle Minute collection drive and also received contributions from Silk Screen Specialists, Lakeshore Veterinary Specialists, Stefanie Johnson, the Grafton Booster Club and Grafton High School administration. Shown with their gift are (front row, from left) Jaden Autey, Brianna Rap, Natalie Cherella, Hailey Zwicker, Hailey Block, (back row) Karsen Wise, Mackenzie Schultz, Ava Pedersen, Faith Kettenhoven, Gretchen Geiser, Judy Tjoe, Tina Arnold, coach Don Arnold and Corbin Woessner. Joining the squad in the fundraising efforts was the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh women’s socceer team, which includes two former Grafton High School players. The Oshkosh team hosted a “Play for a Cause” fundraising game and contributed $3,304 to Team Phoenix.                                                                       Photo by Sam Arendt

Valders no match for CG-Belgium in Level 3 playoff game

Whether or not the cliche rings true and defense wins a championship for the Cedar Grove-Belgium football team this year remains to be seen, but there was no doubting its playmaking prowess in a WIAA Division 5 Level 3 game last Friday.
Every time Valders threatened to score, the Rockets came up big. Using a combination of sacks, fumbles, interceptions and tackles for loss, Cedar Grove-Belgium preserved Valders’ goose egg.
WADE SACK 11 9 17 4CThrow in a highlight-reel, Barry Sanders-esque play from a sophomore to go with a fourth-and-14 touchdown catch, and the Rockets won their final home game of the season, 28-0 — leaving them one victory from a state final in Madison.
The top-seeded Rockets earned three home playoff games, provided they kept winning, before this week’s contest at a neutral site in West Bend. That element wasn’t lost on the players.

Hughes, Clark made second team in North Shore Conference that includes some of the state’s best

In one of the most brutal soccer conferences in the state — Whitefish Bay just won its third straight state title — Port Washington had three standout players earn All-North Shore Conference honors, and Grafton had one.
Port junior midfielder Ben Hughes and senior goalie River Clark made the second team, and senior defender Josh Holtebeck earned honorable mention.
Grafton senior midfielder Brian Holdmann earned honorable mention.
Port coach Sean O’Brien said it was an impressive honor for Hughes.
“That’s a tough category. I think there was about 25 guys nominated. For him to get a second team with the depth of the conference this year, was remarkable and deserving,” he said.
PW G SOCCER (CR) s2101017147Hughes scored 10 goals and had seven assists, being part of more than half of the team’s scoring.
“A lot of our stuff went through Ben,” O’Brien said. “He’s a pretty dynamic player, good at reading the game.”
Hughes was a captain this season and was already chosen to the same leadership post next year.
“The guys look up to him and respect him as a player and as a student-athlete, too. People forget he’s a junior. He’s going to be a key one coming back,” O’Brien said.
Clark has been stuck on second team behind Whitefish Bay superstar Elian Haddock, whom O’Brien said is being considered for the U.S. national team, the past couple of seasons.
