There was no shortage of strong individual performances on the track and in the field for the Cedar Grove-Belgium Rockets at the annual Viking Invitational in Valders on April 17.

Grafton boys to challenge international elite in return to prestigious track meet

Nine years after a group of Grafton boys shined in the spotlight at America’s oldest and largest track and field meet, their school is off to the races again.

Grafton High School will have five boys vying for honors this week at the Penn Relays, a showcase event that attracts more than 15,000 athletes from throughout North America and abroad.

Representing the Black Hawks at Franklin Field in Philadelphia on Friday and Saturday will be the 1,600-meter relay of Matt Salm, Sam Miller, Patrick Tobianski and Erick Huertas and the 3,200 relay of Salm, Tobianski, Alec Weinhold and Huertas.

All are seniors except Miller and Weinhold, who are juniors.

“I’m excited, and the guys are, too,” said Grafton head coach Kevin Kriegel, who will accompany the five runners along with sprints coach Mike Maney.

“It’s a trip we haven’t made for a long time, and it should be a great time.”

Grafton, which will be the only Wisconsin high school in the meet, made the most of its previous appearance at the Penn Relays, which have been held annually since 1895.

Soccer team surges past Christian to kick off stretch of six games in as many days

The Cedar Grove-Belgium girls’ soccer team began a brutal week with a 4-1 win at Sheboygan Christian in Central Lakeshore Conference play Monday.

The match, which had been rescheduled from earlier this month due to poor field conditions, was the first of six games for the Rockets in a six-day stretch.

Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Elias Garza said the game was ragged, but he was happy to get the victory.

Haleigh Bares put the Rockets ahead for good with an early goal assisted by Autumn Beutel.

A.J. Caldwell scored with an assist from Kelsey Doucette to double the lead before Christian pulled within 2-1 late in the first half.

“At halftime, we talked about cleaning things up defensively, staying connected and doing a better job of capitalizing on the opportunities that were being presented to us,” Garza said.

In the second half, Ashli von Heimburg scored on a direct kick, and Doucette capped the scoring with an assist from Caldwell.

The Rockets improved to 3-1 overall, including a 3-0 record in CLC play. Christian fell to 0-2 in the conference.

“It wasn’t the prettiest soccer, but the team managed to get the W,” Garza said.

“Despite the struggles, we acquired a positive Central Lakeshore Conference result. Our team will learn from this, build off of it and focus on our next opponent.”
