Doring’s first-ever homer win over stubborn Port helps Grafton softball team surge to regional championship

Grafton’s offense didn’t explode like it has several other times this season, but Chloe Doring did.
The senior smashed her first-ever home run in varsity softball last Friday in the top-seeded Black Hawks’ 7-0 victory over Port Washington in a WIAA Division 2 regional final.
Doring’s destruction led off the bottom of the fourth inning. She clobbered a fly to right field and kept running, per coach Ken Hunt’s instructions.
“It kind of, like, shocked me. I hit it and then I just felt like it was a normal hit,” Doring said.
“I was running, I saw (coach) going to third. I was, like, OK, and I saw him keep going to home and I was, like, all right, and I just went for it.”

The Grafton girls’ soccer team took it on the chin again last week from a top North Shore Conference team, but this time it was different.
soccerHost Whitefish Bay knocked off the Black Hawks, 5-1, on May 23, just as Cedarburg did the previous week.
But against Bay, Grafton gave an improved effort.
“The girls played hard the entire game, which was a little bit different from the Cedarburg game,” Grafton coach Don Arnold said.
“I’m pleased with our effort. It’s a good thing. You never stop fighting regardless of what the score was.”
It was 3-0 at halftime after Taylor Kerwin scored two goals of her hat trick in the game.
Sophomore midfielder Hailey Block got Grafton on the board in the 61st minute with an unassisted goal.
Rain and wind made playing conditions awful, Arnold noted.
On May 25, Grafton bounced back at home and ended the regular season with a 3-0 nonconference win over Sheboygan Falls.
