  • New club aims to develop players’ skills at early age

With the name I AM Volleyball Club, there’s no mistaking the mission of one of Ozaukee County’s newest sports organizations.

Founded in 2012, the club provides volleyball instruction and competition for players in third through seventh grades.

Having already established a Select program for girls with advanced skills, club directors Todd Lyon and Jarrod Luedtke are taking the next step — offering a grass-roots program that introduces boys as well as girls to the sport.

“We saw the need for a junior-level program that would get kids interested in volleyball and develop their skills,” Lyon said.

“Our goal is to create a sustainable program for third through seventh-graders that’s instruction-based, is fun and gives kids a chance to learn in game settings.”

Lyon and Luedtke both played volleyball in high school and college and coach local girls’ teams. Lyon is the junior-varsity coach at Port Washington High School, and Luedtke runs the varsity program at Grafton High School.

Although there are camps and other off-season training options for area players, the I AM Volleyball Club is trying to fill a void, Lyon noted.

Nonconference foes left the Grafton girls’ basketball team with a mixed bag of results last weekend.

Slowed by a rocky third quarter, the Black Hawks were handed a 52-41 road loss by Marshall on Saturday afternoon.

The previous night, they had little trouble scoring a home win over Cudahy.

“We’ve been playing pretty well, but we seem to have one bad quarter that hurts us,” Grafton coach Steve Reinhardt said.

“In the Marshall game, the third quarter was the one that hurt.”

Despite having its two top players — junior forward Amanda Hunt and senior guard Haley Orlowski — on the bench with foul trouble, Grafton stayed in contention throughout the first half. The Hawks trailed, 25-23, at intermission.
