Soccer champion Ozaukee lands three players on all-league first team that also includes two CG-B standouts

The Ozaukee girls’ soccer team used a pretty straightforward recipe for success this season:

Spread equal parts talent, poise and leadership across the field, add an ample dose of determination, and you’ll put yourself in line for championship honors.

For the Warriors, that line led to conference, regional, sectional and state titles, as well as postseason awards.

Central Lakeshore Conference coaches acknowledged Ozaukee’s approach by naming midfielder Katie Bares, forward Natalie Clark and defender Mickey Burns to the first team in this year’s all-league voting.

Bares and Clark were unanimous choices for the squad, whose members also include Cedar Grove-Belgium’s Halie Schieffer and Briana Weyker.

Bares, a senior, led Ozaukee with 77 points (26 goals and 25 assists) on the way to her fourth first-team selection. She capped her career with two goals and an assist when the Warriors defeated Prairie School, 3-1, to win the WIAA Division 3 state title.

Tough-minded approach earns second-team soccer recognition for Grafton trio, Port Washington’s Faldet

When it comes to hard work, the top players on this year’s Grafton girls’ soccer team played second fiddle to no one.

Seniors Angie Mann and Alyssa Arnold and freshman Maria Salm all emerged as blue-collar leaders for the Black Hawks, who scrapped their way to fourth place in the perennially tough North Shore Conference.

Fittingly, the three caught the eye of coaches, who accorded them second-team honors in All-NSC voting.

Earning the same recognition for her determined play was Port Washington junior Bridget Faldet.

“We had a solid season,” said Grafton coach Don Arnold, whose team posted a 4-3 record in league play and was 12-5-1 overall.

Slow starts fail to keep CG-Belgium from zeroing in another CLC baseball crown

The Cedar Grove-Belgium baseball team won its 10th straight game Monday and sat alone atop the Central Lakeshore Conference standings.

But Rockets coach Mike Ruppel didn’t want to talk about that.

Despite losing six of last year’s players to graduation, most of them all-conference players, Cedar Grove-Belgium improved its record to 11-2 and remained in the driver’s seat to win its third consecutive league title.

Ruppel didn’t want to talk about that, either.

He’s more worried about just getting better.

“We’re a young team, so it’s all about improvement,” he said.

The Rockets’ improvement plans stayed on course Monday when they rallied for a 12-7 road win over Random Lake.

After falling behind, 7-1, Cedar Grove-Belgium scored three runs in the sixth inning and six runs in the seventh to secure the victory.

Shaky defense cost the Rockets, whose three errors in the first inning gave Random Lake five runs. But the Rockets’ bats came alive as the game wore on.
