The Cedar Grove-Belgium volleyball team got its twin towers back, and the Rockets finished 4-3 in the High School Showdown at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh last weekend.sports3

After returning from an injury two weeks ago, senior Ellie Kaat was back in form for the Rockets. She was named to the all-tournament team.

“The team played great together. We were playing with a new lineup again and they are starting to click,” Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Tabitha Weavers said.

“The team worked hard while Ellie was gone. Liz Bruggink played so well, and still does, but without the team around her, there would be nothing.”

The Rockets also got a solid performance from Ashley Voskuil, their other 6-foot player. “With Ellie and Ashley back, we are a bigger presence and more aggressive at the net,” Weavers said.

Ozaukee football team rebounds from tough loss to pummel Mishicot, 48-0

It was no sweat for the Ozaukee High School football team last Friday.

Rebounding from a tough nonconference loss to perennial power St. Mary’s Springs, the Warriors rolled to a 48-0 win over visiting Mishicot in a Big East Conference game.sports1

“I was proud of the way the team played coming off a hard, physical game against Springs,” Ozaukee coach Jim Lippe said.

“It was a good team effort, a nice come-back win.”

The Warriors, who improved to 3-0 in the conference and 3-1 overall, dominated all aspects of the game from the start and scored twice in three of the four quarters.

Senior quarterback Joe Lippe finished the night with a 154.4 passer rating, completing eight of 11 attempts for 164 yards and three touchdowns. Each scoring strike came in the first half, when the Warriors built a 29-0 lead.

Lippe got the scoring started when he connected with Jared Zausch on a 35-yard touchdown pass early in the opening quarter. Garrett Hoffmann added the first of his four extra points in the game.

After Jake Yanke gave the Warriors a 1-yard scoring run, they added two touchdown passes in the second period.

Lippe found Jared Henderson open for a 9-yard touchdown toss and added a 36-yard scoring pass to Zausch with 3:21 left in the half.

In the third quarter, Zach Penkwitz found the end zone on a 40-yard run.

“Zach is really starting to run the ball well for us,” coach Lippe said. “We need to find a way to get him the ball more.”

In the fourth quarter, the Warriors got a 9-yard touchdown run from Keigan Schmit and a 4-yard scoring run by Blake West. After the final touchdown, the Warriors took a knee rather than attempt a conversion.

“The offensive line controlled the line of scrimmage, and we were able to run the ball effectively,” coach Lippe said.

“Keigan Schmit had a good game running the ball.”

Schmit finished with a game-high 118 rushing yards on 12 carries.

 Zausch led the Warriors’ receiving corps with four catches for 90 yards.

Coach Lippe also singled out his team’s defensive effort, which limited Mishicot to 144 total yards.

“Our defense, led by Anthony Rauch, effectively shut down Mishicot’s run and their pass,” Lippe added.

Rauch had eight tackles, including three for losses, and Ben Berweger had seven tackles.

The Warriors had six quarterback sacks, led by Ridge Wood with two for minus-14 yards.

CG-Belgium football team shows its versatility in passing, running to road win over Howards Grove

The Howards Grove football team figured out how to slow Cedar Grove-Belgium receiver Reid Hilbelink, and the Tigers limited star quarterback Josh Weiss to a season-low in touchdown passes last Friday.

Granted, it took three defenders to hold Hilbelink in check, yet he still scored twice and now is tied for the state lead in touchdown catches with nine.

Weiss managed only four touchdown passes, tying his season low, but he still has a state-leading 18 for the season.

More importantly, the Rockets cruised to a 44-0 road win in a Big East Conference game, an indication of just how explosive their offense has been.

Adding to the fun, special teams scored on a 77-yard kickoff return, and the Rockets’ defense collected a safety.

With the win, Cedar Grove-Belgium improved to 2-1 in league play and 3-1 overall.

Weiss completed 10 of 13 passes for  235 yards. Hilbelink had two catches for 50 yards.

“Pretty much the same old Josh again,” Rockets coach Dan Schreurs said.
