Break in weather gives CB-Belgium boys chance to shine in home victory; girls take 3rd in their test

The Cedar Grove-Belgium boys’ track and field team isn’t at full strength yet, but you couldn’t tell from the outcome of its first outdoor meet of the season April 4.

The Rockets placed first in a home quadrangular meet, edging Sheboygan Lutheran, 81-79, in a battle for the top spot.

Random Lake was third with 55.5 point, and Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah had 17.5.

Cedar Grove-Belgium won eight events and had five second-place finishes.

“The boys had solid day in winning,  which was a surprise,” Rockets coach Les Paul said. “We still don’t have our full complement of people in events yet.”

Individual winners for the host team were Aaron Chier in the 100-meter dash (11.2 seconds), Adam Chier in the shot put (38 feet, 9 inches), Arjun Sehgal in the  400 dash (57.9), Derek Arndt in the 300 hurdles (50.6), Alex Giles in the 200 dash (24.5), Logan Peterson in the triple jump (40-3) and Joe Oelhafen in the high jump (4-10).

Cedar Grove-Belgium’s other win came from the 800 relay team of Brent Brochtrup, Aaron Chier, Giles and Peterson (1:40).

“Alex Giles and Aaron Chier looked real solid in their events this early,” Paul said.

Spring-vacation trip gives Grafton softball team no wins but plenty of diamond time

It’s not often that a winless three-game road trip provides much in the way of positives.

But victories aside, the Grafton High School softball team had a chance last week to open the season and enjoy spring vacation at the same time.


“We got a little better as the week went on,” Grafton coach Ken Hunt said after his squad played a trio of nonconference games in Foley, Ala.


After starting the season with a 10-8 loss to Foley on April 4, the Black Hawks fell twice April 5 — a 10-1 loss to Louisville Assumption (Ky.) and a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Gulf Shores (Ala.).


“At least we were able to get on the field. That was the big thing,” said Hunt, who noted that most area softball teams have been relegated to indoor practices because of Wisconsin’s uncooperative spring weather.


“We didn’t play that well, but the teams down there are in mid-season. If we played them 10 times later in the season, I think we would win most of the games.”


Against Foley, Grafton got off a great start and built an 8-0 lead by the third inning.

Victories from senior sprinter, 1,600 team highlight strong performance by boys’ track team at West Relays

A pair of championship performances set the pace for the Grafton boys’ track and field team at the annual Madison West Relays last Saturday.

Senior Zach DeBuhr led the Black Hawks in individual events with a first-place finish in the 200-meter dash (23.17 seconds).

Grafton’s other victory came from the 1,600 relay of Sam Miller, Joe Docter, Patrick Tobianski and Erick Huertas (3:35.63).

“It was nice to see us to do well in a meet like this,” Grafton coach Kevin Kriegel said. “The competition was quite good, with a number of big, strong teams.”

The Black Hawks finished with 39 points, good for sixth place among 21 teams that scored in the Class B portion of the meet at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

La Crosse Logan won the team title with 69 points. Rounding out the top five were East Troy (60.25), Monroe (57.5), West Bend West (42) and Merrill (39.5).

Taking second for Grafton was the 400 relay of Nic Fullington, Willie McElligott, Huertas and DeBuhr (45.54). The Hawks were edged by Monona Grove (45.46).

The Hawks’ other scoring finishes were a fourth by Miller in the 400 dash (53.62), fifth by the 3,2000 relay of Jamie Haessly, Docter, Alec Weinhold and Tobianski (8:45.25) and seventh by Jacob Woolf in the 3,200 run (10:44.16).

Grafton lost potential points due to disqualifications in the 800 relay and the high jump. The relay of Jack Howman, McElligott, Huertas and DeBuhr had the fastest time in the race but was disqualified for a late exchange.
