Down-to-the-wire win over top-seeded Clinton sends CG-Belgium football team to first state final since 2008

Cedar Grove-Belgium players struggled to describe their feelings minutes after winning their first game of the football season on turf last Friday, another nail-biter in true Rockets’ fashion.sports1

A 42-35 victory over Clinton in a WIAA Division 5 Level 4 contest at Slinger earned coach Dan Schreurs’ squad a second turf contest — this time a state title game at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison.

“I don’t even know,” quarterback Josh Weiss, now the most prolific single-season touchdown passer in state history, said of his emotions.

“One of the greatest feelings I’ve ever had. Just glory to God. It’s incredible.”

As he has been throughout the season, Weiss was at the center of the Rockets’ come-from-behind win. The senior completed 32 of 52 passes for 365 yards and four touchdowns and had a 1-yard scoring run in the fourth quarter that put his team ahead to stay.

With the victory, Cedar Grove-Belgium improved to 12-1 and advances to a state final for the first time since 2008. On Thursday, Nov. 17, the Rockets will face Amherst (12-1) for the Division 5 crown at 4 p.m.

Richards-powered team sets sights on winning record with nearly everyone back in fold 

The returning players on this season’s Ozaukee High School girls’ basketball team are a year older, but they’re still young.

The Warriors lost only one player, guard Brooke Bares, to graduation. Although her absence leaves a hole in the starting lineup, second-year head coach Tim Wolff has several proven performers to pick up the slack.

Defending Div. 5 champion brings rich playoff tradition into Thursday state final against upstart Cedar Grove-Belgium

The challenge of knocking off a defending state champion awaits the Cedar Grove-Belgium football team in a WIAA Division 5 final at 4 p.m. Thursday at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison.

Confronting the Rockets will be Amherst, appearing in its fourth title game in five years.

Cedar Grove-Belgium returns to a state final for the first time since 2008, when head coach Dan Schreurs was overseeing the school’s junior-varsity team and coaching the Rockets’ running backs. Now in his second year at the varsity helm, he has been with their program for 17 years.
