The Grafton High School softball team rode the strong arm of pitcher Amanda Hunt and made the most of its scoring chances Monday.

Despite managing just four hits, the Black Hawks downed host Port Washington, 5-1, in a North Shore Conference game.

Grafton jumped ahead early and built a 3-0 lead by scoring single runs in the second, third and fourth innings.

After Port scored in the fourth inning, the Hawks added two insurance runs in the fifth.

Hunt, a junior, went the distance for the win. She struck out 12 batters and walked one.

The loss went to Maggie Schmit, who pitched the first five innings. She struck out two and walked six.

The only batter with more than one hit was Grafton’s Jackie Corner, who went 2-for-3 with an RBI.

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.
