Championship effort by No. 1 duo helps Grafton tennis squad secure 2nd place at Delavan-Darien Invite

A championship performance at No. 1 doubles kept the Grafton boys’ tennis team near the top of the Delavan-Darien Invitational last Saturday.

Senior Scotty Tyler and junior Jake Willms led the Black Hawks by winning all three of their matches in straight sets, including a 6-3, 6-1 victory over Kettle Moraine’s Greg Jasinski and Jess Kim in the final.


On the way to the title match, Tyler and Willms opened with a 6-4, 6-3 win over a Racine Case duo and defeated Kenosha Bradford’s Evan Winter and Alex Van Hoof, 6-1, 6-1.


The doubles crown helped Grafton score 24 points, good for second place in the seven-team standings. Kettle Moraine won the title with 35 points.


Rounding out the field was third-place Racine St. Catherine’s with 20 points, followed by Milwaukee School of Languages (16), Bradford (11.5), Racine Case (7.5) and Delavan-Darien (6.5).


“We were happy to get the tournament in,” said Grafton coach Nick Kassens, who noted play was delayed in the morning due to ice on the courts.

After repeated postponements due to inclement weather, the Ozaukee girls’ soccer team finally took the field for its first Central Lakeshore Conference match April 16.

The host Warriors made the most of  the opportunity by blanking Sheboygan Lutheran/Kohler, 7-0.

Senior Katie Bares led the way with two goals and an assist, and five of her teammates each scored once.

“It was a very good start to our conference play,” Ozaukee coach Eric  Liebergen said.

“We found scoring threats from several different players and did a nice job of sharing the ball.”

Bares gave the Warriors all the offense they needed when she scored in the third minute with an assist from Ashley Preisler.

Emily Janke and Lizzie Janke added goals at four and 34 minutes, respectively, allowing Ozaukee to take a 3-0 lead into halftime.

The game turned into a romp with second-half goals by Bares, Kaylee Klopp, Natalie Clark and Micaela Burns in the 55th through 69th minutes. Clark’s score was assisted by Bares.

In addition to praising his team’s well-balanced offense, Liebergen was impressed with its defensive effort.

Shutout loss to Germantown dampens season debut for Grafton girls’ soccer team

The net was an elusive place for the Grafton girls’ soccer team when it finally had a chance to open the season Monday.

Struggling to get its offense on track, the Black Hawks were blanked, 2-0, by Germantown in a North Shore Conference match played at Whitefish Bay High School.


“We got to get on the field, that was the big thing,” said Grafton coach Don Arnold, whose team made its 2013 debut after having its first three games postponed due to inclement weather.


“It would have been better to come away with a win, but we can’t make any excuses. We didn’t play well. You could tell we didn’t have any rhythm going.”


The game was originally scheduled at Germantown on Tuesday, April 16, but was moved to Bay because of unplayable conditions. Bay has an artificial-turf field.  


The Black Hawks faced a tough challenge against a foe that finished second in the conference last year. Playing its third game of the season, Germantown (2-0-1) allowed only four shots.


Staunch defense became the order of the day for both teams, who had to play most of the night in steady rain.
