Marksmanship, teamwork carry CG-Belgium 8th-grade squad to top honors in Ohio

The five-member squad from Cedar Grove-Belgium schools recently won a national title in the Intermediate Eighth Grade Division of the Scholastic Clay Target Program in Marengo, Ohio.

Members included Tony Ogren, Jake Weyker, Nolan VanEss, Josh Nett and Matt Anderson.

“We’ve got a very solid five kids, which helps you win the team event. They’re very consistent,” coach Dan Nett said.

The team tournament spanned two days of an eight-day competition that attracted shooters from fifth grade through college.

Each team member shoots at 100 clay targets each day, divided up into rounds of 25. One round consists of shooters firing at five targets at each of five stations.

State champion Menomonee Falls’ late rally leaves Grafton baseball team with another season-ending loss

No one would blame the Grafton Black Hawks if they prefer not facing Menomonee Falls on the baseball diamond for a while.sports1

For the third straight year Monday, the teams tangled in the WIAA playoffs, and the Hawks were handed a season-ending loss.

This time, Falls prevailed with a 2-1, walk-off win in a pitcher-dominated sectional semifinal at Germantown that could have easily gone the other way.

“It’s frustrating, but we gave Falls a great game,” Grafton coach Brian Durst said.

“We had our chances, but we just didn’t hit the ball well. We couldn’t get anything going offensively, which was the big story for us.”

Shaky defense at inopportune times also cost the Hawks, including on the final play.

The game was knotted at 1-1 when Falls mounted the decisive rally in the bottom of the seventh inning.
