Victories from senior sprinter, 1,600 team highlight strong performance by boys’ track team at West Relays

A pair of championship performances set the pace for the Grafton boys’ track and field team at the annual Madison West Relays last Saturday.

Senior Zach DeBuhr led the Black Hawks in individual events with a first-place finish in the 200-meter dash (23.17 seconds).

Grafton’s other victory came from the 1,600 relay of Sam Miller, Joe Docter, Patrick Tobianski and Erick Huertas (3:35.63).

“It was nice to see us to do well in a meet like this,” Grafton coach Kevin Kriegel said. “The competition was quite good, with a number of big, strong teams.”

The Black Hawks finished with 39 points, good for sixth place among 21 teams that scored in the Class B portion of the meet at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

La Crosse Logan won the team title with 69 points. Rounding out the top five were East Troy (60.25), Monroe (57.5), West Bend West (42) and Merrill (39.5).

Taking second for Grafton was the 400 relay of Nic Fullington, Willie McElligott, Huertas and DeBuhr (45.54). The Hawks were edged by Monona Grove (45.46).

The Hawks’ other scoring finishes were a fourth by Miller in the 400 dash (53.62), fifth by the 3,2000 relay of Jamie Haessly, Docter, Alec Weinhold and Tobianski (8:45.25) and seventh by Jacob Woolf in the 3,200 run (10:44.16).

Grafton lost potential points due to disqualifications in the 800 relay and the high jump. The relay of Jack Howman, McElligott, Huertas and DeBuhr had the fastest time in the race but was disqualified for a late exchange.

With talent, experience and a record turnout, CG-B softball team is set to shine this spring

The Cedar Grove-Belgium High School softball program already hit a new high in 2013, and the season hasn’t even started.

Twenty-seven girls came out for the sport this spring, allowing the school to field varsity and junior-varsity teams for the first time.

Just three years ago, the Rockets had only 12 players.

“It just continues to get bigger. That’s a good thing,” Rockets coach Scott Soerens said.

Now in his fourth year, Soerens has led an entire class through the program, developing continuity.

This year, the Rockets have six returning starters, including three players who will share pitching duties — juniors Kasie Feind and Hannah Dirkse and sophomore Mandy Race.

“It’s a good thing to have. It makes for all the more competition in practice. Nice luxury,” Soerens said.


Feind earned All-Central Lakeshore Conference first-team honors last year as a utility player, and Race received honorable mention as an outfielder.

Kaylee Juhasz, one of three seniors entering their fourth varsity seasons, will be the Rockets’ starting catcher.

Senior-led girls’ team has skill, depth as it prepares for Central Lakeshore title chase

There is no shortage of skill and high expectations for the Cedar Grove-Belgium girls’ soccer team this spring.

Coming off of a 19-5-1 overall record and a 12-2, second-place finish in the Central Lakeshore Conference, the Rockets have plenty of veteran talent in their bid for another title shot.

Leading the pack are seven seniors, including three who received all-conference first-team honors last year: forward Halie Schieffer, midfielder Briana Weyker and goalkeeper Alyssa Schmitt.

Schieffer scored 25 goals and had 19 assists for the Rockets, who trailed only Howards Grove in the CLC standings.

Weyker had 16 goals and five assists and helped spark her team’s transition game.

Schmitt anchored a defense that posted 12 shutouts.

Cedar Grove-Belgium’s other top players include seniors Alex Buechler, Caitlin Hausner, Brooke Koepsell and Alyssa Sauer, junior Abby Vrubley and sophomore Ashli von Heimburg.
