Senczyszyn’s wins lead way as swim team secures 2nd in North Shore meet

A familiar challenge faced the Grafton girls’ swimming and diving team when it hosted the North Shore Conference meet last week.

And once again, the Black Hawks rose to the occasion to stake their claim among the area’s top squads.

Despite being overmatched in numbers, Grafton made the most of its talent to secure second place in the overall standings after Saturday’s swimming competition.

Perennial power Cedarburg dominated the meet, piling up 437 points in a successful defense of its team title. The Hawks had a firm grip on the runner-up spot with 342 points, 18 more than third-place Whitefish Bay.

CG-B football finds little room to run in first-round loss to Kenosha St. Joseph

Cut off the fuel, and you’ll stop the engine.

The Kenosha St. Joseph football team took the strategy to heart when it bottled up Cedar Grove-Belgium’s top rusher in a WIAA Division 5 playoff opener last Friday.

Limiting halfback Alex Giles to 70 yards on 25 carries, the Lancers secured a 21-0 win over a foe they struggled with last year.

“Kenosha St. Joseph won by beating us up front,” Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Chris Zablocki said.

“They were big, and we knew we would have a challenge. When they put 10 people in the box to stop Alex, there wasn’t any room for him to run.”

Fifth-seeded St. Joseph (7-2), which had been gashed for 322 rushing yards by Giles in a pair of losses to the Rockets last year, wasn’t about to be manhandled this time. In controlling the line, the Lancers allowed only 168 total yards, forced Cedar Grove-Belgium to the air and scooped up five turnovers.

Although the Rockets had several chances to connect with the pass, their timing was off. Quarterback Drew Emperley went 6-for-14 for 54 yards and threw two interceptions.

Trailing, 7-0, fourth-seeded Cedar Grove-Belgium saw its best scoring chance dashed when Emperley just missed on a pass to tight end Brady Myhre that could have tied it up.

“We were a bit off in our passing game all night,” Zablocki said. “They forced us to pass, but we weren’t able to make enough plays.”

Although St. Joseph didn’t generate a high-powered offense, it put up enough points to slowly take charge.

Running back Chris Madden rushed for a game-high 169 yards on 25 carries, and quarterback Justin Williams added 104 yards and two touchdowns on 15 attempts.

CG-Belgium girls edge Random to win 2nd straight team berth in Division 2

The Cedar Grove-Belgium girls’ cross-country team has booked another trip to the biggest meet of the season.

Led by Tammi Del Ponte, the Rockets earned a spot in the WIAA Division 3 state final for the second straight year by winning a sectional meet at Sheboygan Lutheran High School last Saturday.

Del Ponte, a senior, finished third in a field of 103 runners with a 4,000-meter time of 15 minutes, 57 seconds.

Cedar Grove-Belgium scored 67 points, eight fewer than runner-up Random Lake, the other state-qualifying team.

The previous week, the Rockets also edged Random Lake to win the Central Lakeshore Conference, 42-49.


“The girls had a goal in mind, to run a solid race, and they did a great job of taking our race plan and executing it,” Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Les Paul said.
