Senior girl, junior boy continue winning ways for Grafton track and field team at Arrowhead invitational

Familiar talent propelled the Grafton track and field teams in the annual Myrhum Invitational at Arrowhead High School last Friday.

Led by a pair of individual wins from senior Sara Grange, the Grafton girls raced to sixth place out of 19 teams.

Grange won in the 100-meter dash (12.64 seconds) and high jump (5 feet).

The Lady Hawks also got a victory in the 800 relay of Anya Dillahunt, Alina Dillahunt, Katelyn Gallun and Grange (1:46.36).

Rounding out Grafton’s scoring efforts were a third in the 1,600 relay of Gallun, Anya Dillahunt, Alina Dillahunt and Grange (4:05.06), fifth from Ashley Tanski in the discus (99-2) and an
eighth-place tie from Anya Dillahunt in the 100 dash (13.29).

The Lady Hawks finished with 40.5 points. Arrowhead won the team title with 133.5.

“Sara had an amazing meet against some of the biggest schools in the state,” Grafton coach Kevin Kriegel said.

“It was a great performance. I can’t say enough about her.”

In the boys’ portion of the meet, Grafton got 30 of its 38 points from sprinters Erick Huertas and Zach DeBuhr.

Port soccer team fails to find net but shows improvement in three-game stretch that includes a tie

It’s not often that a soccer team can fail to score in three straight games and still have a sense of accomplishment.

Although his squad had to settle for two North Shore Conference losses and a nonconference tie last week, Port coach Mike Bultman isn’t complaining.


“We played some good soccer. We lost to two teams that are just better than we are at this point, and had a tie in another game we could have won,” he said.


“It really wasn’t a bad week.”


Port capped the week by battling host Oostburg to a 0-0 tie in a nonleague match Friday.


The Pirates played well defensively but were unable to take advantage of several good scoring chances, according to Bultman.


“I don’t think Oostburg had many dangerous opportunities on goal against us,” he said of the 100-minute standoff, which included two 10-minute overtimes.


“Offensively, we had plenty of opportunities to win but couldn’t convert. That’s something we have to keep working on.

Battles with Homestead, Central leave Grafton with pair of rough softball losses

The weekend was no friend to the Grafton High School softball team.

After winning their first three games last week, the Black Hawks were handed a pair of close losses Saturday.

Grafton was edged by Homestead, 3-2, in a North Shore Conference makeup game before falling to Brookfield Central, 4-1, in nonconference play.

The Homestead tussle was especially tough because it dropped the Hawks to 5-3 in NSC play and seriously damaged their title hopes.

“It was a rough day. We were a little short-handed,” Grafton coach Ken Hunt said.

“The loss to Homestead kind of put the conference (title) out of reach for us.”
