Former assistant Miazga inherits talent-filled roster as head of Grafton girls’ team

It’s not unusual for teams to face a learning curve when they change coaches.sports3

But Tom Miazga’s arrival as the new sideline leader of the Grafton girls’ swimming and diving squad shouldn’t create big waves.

Miazga is a familiar face to many of the Black Hawks, having served as one of their assistant coaches for three seasons before spending last year as head coach of the Shorewood High School girls’ and boys’ swim teams.

“I think it’s going to be a great situation,” said Miazga, who succeeds John Douglass at the Grafton helm.

“You never know for sure what to expect with the start of the new season, but I’ve had a strong relationship here in the past. That’s a real positive.”

Douglass, who cited family commitments in stepping down after last season, helped establish Grafton as one of the state’s premier high school swim programs. The Hawks finished third in last season’s WIAA Division 2 state meet, capping a four-year run that included team championships in 2013 and 2014 and a third-place performance in 2012.

Fredonia man takes passion for disc courses to the professional level — and cashes in nicely

T.J. Mages of Fredonia recently experienced the highs and lows of golf all within a few minutes.sports1

Standing several feet away from the basket on his third shot in the Riverside Summer Open disc golf tournament in West Bend on July 30, Mages was in position to win.

If he made the shot and parred the last three holes, he was likely to take home the tournament’s top prize.

His disc “caught an air bounce,” hit the top of the basket and rolled down hill. He had to lay up and take a four.

Minutes later on the final hole, Mages took a chance and fired a straight shot into the basket for a birdie to win the tournament.

“It was a good feeling,” he said.

Mages took home $215“for something I like to do.”

But disc golf is more than a hobby for Mages. He turned pro in 1998 and has won nearly $2,000 in his career.

A sport that at first glance looks like people just playing Frisbee is a greater challenge with parallels to what Mages calls “ball golf,” which he also enjoys.

“It’s the same mentality as addressing a golf ball. It’s 10% physical and 90% mental,” he said.
