Krause-led Hawks handle Port, storm in wrapping up their first North Shore crown

It was a bit anticlimactic due to the weather, but the Grafton Black Hawks welcomed their first North Shore Conference softball title in any way, shape or form.

KIRSTEN KRAUSE s2051517001 4C

For four innings on Monday, that meant another dominant performance at the plate and in the field.

The Hawks clobbered host Port Washington, 11-0, before lightning put the game on hold. A rainstorm soon followed, and the game was called even though the five innings weren’t played.

Grafton’s players took cover in the team bus during the storm. A big cheer filled the vehicle when coach Ken Hunt told his team the game was over and the Hawks had won the conference outright.

“They were pretty happy once I told them on the bus,” Hunt said. “They knew going into this game that we had at least a share of it locked up.”
