Losing two of final three league games doesn’t keep CG-Belgium from winning 3rd straight CLC baseball title

A shaky end to the regular season didn’t prevent the Cedar Grove-Belgium baseball team from winning its third straight Central Lakeshore Conference title last week.

Although the Rockets lost two of three games, they secured at least a share of the league crown by defeating Oostburg on July 3.

Sandwiched around the victory were losses to Sheboygan Lutheran/Kohler on July 1 and Ozaukee last Friday.

The week left Cedar Grove-Belgium with a 13-5 conference record, just ahead of runner-up Lutheran/Kohler (12-5). However, Lutheran/Kohler still had a chance to grab a share of the CLC title by winning a makeup game against Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah on July 8.

A 9-8 loss at Ozaukee prevented the Rockets from clinching an outright championship.

Cedar Grove-Belgium trailed, 9-1, after six innings but made things interesting by scoring seven runs — all with two outs — in the seventh.

In the final inning, Cedar Grove-Belgium sent 12 batters to the plate against Ozaukee starter Jeremy Wichmann and reliever Lee Wysocki. Four hits, three walks and an error pulled the Rockets within a run before Wysocki was able to get the final out (see related story).

Ozaukee won the season series against the Rockets, 2-1. Each game was a nail-biter, with Cedar Grove-Belgium losing the first meeting, 6-5, and winning the second, 7-5.

CG-Belgium 4, Oostburg 1

Grafton baseball team overpowers West Bend East to earn share of 6th in NSC

After an up-and-down regular season, the Grafton High School baseball team was itching for an ego boost before entering the WIAA tournament this week.

A 6-1 win over West Bend East in the Black Hawks’ North Shore Conference finale last Friday turned the trick nicely.


“Our guys did a great job,” said Grafton coach Brian Durst, whose squad took charge with a combination of timely hits, steady defense and sharp pitching by  Nate Lukas.


“It was Senior Night, and we were up for the game. It was definitely good to get a win like this, especially heading into the playoffs.”


Lukas, a junior left-hander, kept East in check with a three-hit, complete-game effort. He struck out two and walked one, with his only mistake coming on a solo homer to Eric Bould in the second inning.


Bould’s blast briefly tied the game at 1-1, but Grafton responded with five unanswered runs.

In the Hawks’ third inning, Brett Rasmussen led off with a triple and scored on a one-out single by Choo Weisflog. After Weisflog advanced to second base on a wild pitch, he came home on Beau Benzschawel’s single to give Grafton a 3-1 lead.

The Hawks tacked on a run in the fifth when Benzschawel walked, reached second base on a walk to Lukas and scored on a Tim Grams’ single.

In the sixth, Benzschawel capped a big night by cracking a two-run homer after Weisflog drew a two-out walk.
