Pitching wildness by Stockbridge/Hilbert makes things easy for CG-Belgium

The Cedar Grove-Belgium softball team walked its way to victory against Stockbridge/Hilbert on Monday.

The Rockets won, 20-5, in a Big East Conference game shortened to five innings by the 10-run mercy rule.

CGB SOFTBALLCedar Grove-Belgium’s offense took advantage of a combined 18 walks from three pitchers in four innings and didn’t bat in the fifth after maintaining a double-digit lead.

Allie DeRuyter had two hits, including a bases-clearing double.

“I told them to be aggressive,” Rockets coach Scott Soerens said of his offense. “Their pitchers were hittable whether they were strikes or not.”

Anna Thiele pitched four innings, allowing two hits and striking out two. She didn’t walk anyone.

Megan Gonwa finished up pitching duties in the fifth.

The Rockets scored eight runs in the third inning and nine runs in the fourth.

Both offenses woke up in the seventh inning of a Big East contest last Friday as the score heading into the final frame was 7-6 in favor of the Zephyrs.

The Rockets were missing three starters, — Thiele and Gonwa, their top two pitchers — and first baseman Anna Sauer, all due to confirmation.

After scoring nine runs in the seventh, pitcher Maria Dries got tired and made some mistakes, Soerens said. Errors behind her didn’t help, he added.

Clutch pitching, hitting send Grafton softball team past Nicolet in shutout win that maintains hold on first

Just past the halfway point of the North Shore Conference season, Grafton’s softball team has yet to be beaten.

The Black Hawks got off to a slow start on Monday at home against Nicolet, but held the Knights scoreless on a no-out, bases-loaded jam and plated seven runs in the third inning on the way to an 11-0 victory in five innings.

AMANDA PARSONThat improved the Hawks to 8-0 in the NSC, ahead of runner-up Germantown (6-1) and third-place Port Washington (6-2).

Although the final score looked dominant, Monday’s contest hung in the balance for nearly three innings.

In the top of the third, pitcher Ally Parsons allowed three straight hits to start the inning, putting the Knights in prime position to score.

But consecutive grounders to third and second led to force plays at home. After a several-pitch at-bat including a host of foul balls, Parsons forced a grounder to short, and the Hawks got out of the jam unscathed.

They followed by scoring seven runs in their half of the inning and blowing the game open.

Port, Grafton boys make most of chances at North Shore relays

BOYS RELAYSThe Port Washington boys’ track and field team was missing two of its top performers for the North Shore Conference relays in Cedarburg on May 5, leaving the door open for others to step up.

“Josh Holtebeck became the ultimate utility man, running two hurdle races which are not his normal events. In addtion to the hurdles, he did the triple jump and the pole vault,” Port coach Mark Pasten said.

The Pirates finished fifth in the meet with 40.5 points. Homestead won with 111.5 points, edging Whitefish Bay’s 108.

Grafton scored 30 points and came in last of eight teams.

The Pirates were without Deron Spicer, who had the flu, and Nick Landowski, who had an injured shoulder.

“Nolan Fullington went from being listed in one sprint relay to having to replace Spicer in two additional sprint relays, and he never hesitated when asked to fill in,” Pasten said.
