CG-Belgium senior caps prep wrestling career with consolation medal in Div. 2 individual state tournament

Cedar Grove-Belgium senior Abel Brockman won the final match of his high school wrestling career and came back from Madison with some hardware to show for it.sports1

Brockman placed fifth in the 120-pound weight class of the WIAA Division 2 individual state tournament last week.

“It was a big goal of his to get on the awards stand. He wrestled well,” Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Trevor Peterson said.

Brockman (39-8) beat River Valley’s Caleb Radtke (34-12) on a 6-4 decision in the fifth-place match final Saturday at the Kohl Center.

Brockman gave up two takedowns in the one-minute first period and then turned it around.

“After that, it was a pretty controlled match,” Peterson said.

Senior point guard Tanner Autey answered the call, hitting eight of nine free throws down the stretch to help seal a 59-50 victory in the Hawks’ regular-season finale.

Seven-point lead at intermission fades as Grafton girls fall in season-ending defeat

Playing one good half of basketball plagued the Grafton girls’ team lately, and last Friday at Slinger it ended their season.

The Black Hawks squandered a seven-point halftime lead as the host Owls cranked up the intensity in the second 18 minutes to secure a 42-30 win in a WIAA Division 2 regional semifinal.

Senior forward Chloe Doring, who stepped up her offensive game late in the season, led the Hawks with 12 points.
