CG-Belgium forward, Ozaukee goalkeeper named to all-conference first team

There was just no quit in John Schmidt.

Although the Cedar Grove-Belgium senior wasn’t the high-profile leader of a championship boys’ soccer team this season, he still emerged as one of the Central Lakeshore Conference’s top players.

Schmidt, a forward, led the Rockets in scoring on his way to All-CLC first-team honors in a vote of coaches.

He finished with 17 goals and four assists for a team that went 5-7 in league play and 7-14-2 overall.

Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Elias Garza described Schmidt, one of the Rockets’ captains, as “a quiet leader who was great at possessing the ball, whether facing the goal or with his back to it.

CG-Belgium girls’ team lives up to reputation by racing to 3rd in Div. 3 meet

Although it was the biggest challenge of the season, the Rockets treated it like any other meet.

In the process, they ran faster than they ever have.

Members of the Cedar Grove-Belgium girls’ cross-country team averaged a 4,000-meter time of 16 minutes, 17 seconds at last Saturday’s WIAA Division 3 state meet, an all-time best for a program that has established itself as one of the finest in Wisconsin.

The Rockets scored 123 points, good for third place out of 16 teams. They trailed only champion Spring Valley (108 points) and Darlington (110).

“They worked all season long for this day. We planned out the workouts, we planned out the meets, we visualized running really good races, and it turned out great,” Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Les Paul said.

“We knew going in that there would be no more than a dozen points or so between the top three teams. Third place was a great finish.”

As she has throughout the season, senior Tammi Del Ponte led the Rockets in a 150-runner field at Ridges Golf Course in Wisconsin Rapids. She placed 10th among runners on complete teams and 16th overall with a personal-best time of 15:39.31.

Cedar Grove-Belgium’s other scoring finishes were sophomore Lily Paul in 13th (22nd overall) at 15:51.83, junior Molly Ison in 16th (30th) at 16:00.43, junior Jericho Duenk in 37th (67th) at 16:53.1 and senior Chloe Paul in 47th (80th) at 17:00.81.

Also for the Rockets, senior Maria Schueller finished 68th (108th) in 17:32.01 and junior Kiran Sehgal was 107th (147th) in 18:59.58.

Ladysmith’s Andrea Ostenso won the race in 14:34.59.

Practice mishap ends year for former Port star, who now faces long road to recovery

It only took a split second, on a move he has made countless times, for Josh Gasser to have his basketball season cut short.

Driving to the basket during practice at the Kohl Center last Saturday morning, the University of Wisconsin-Madison guard went up for a layup and felt a pop in his left knee. He knew something was seriously wrong.

“It all went so fast, I’m not sure what happened. I planted my leg to take a shot, and I think I stepped on someone’s foot,” said Gasser, who was tended to quickly by trainers and soon got the news no player wants to hear.

Medical tests confirmed the former Port Washington High School standout had a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the knee, as well as damage to the lateral collateral ligament, which was torn from a bone. The diagnosis means he will miss the 2012-13 season.

“At this point, I’m trying to go with the flow. There’s nothing else I can do,”  Gasser said.
