Grafton soccer team blanks two more foes on way to sectional level

When the Grafton Black Hawks take the field for a WIAA Division 2 sectional semifinal soccer game this Thursday in Pewaukee, they will have no shortage of confidence.

All the Hawks have done in winning their last 10 games is outscore their opponents, 58-2. It’s an eye-opening streak  with eight shutouts, including a pair in home regional play last week.

In a regional final Oct. 11, Grafton blanked Milwaukee Lutheran, 4-0. That win came after the Hawks trounced Milwaukee Messmer, 11-0, in an Oct. 9 semifinal game called after one half.

“We got on this run when our players started to believe in themselves,” said Hawks coach Don Arnold, whose fourth-seeded team will take a 15-6-1 record into its match against top-seeded Pewaukee (16-2-3).

Grafton girls’ swim team splashes to runner-up honors at prestigious Small School State Invite; Port finishes 13th

There’s little doubt the Grafton girls’ swimming and diving team can hold its own in tough competition, especially after a strong showing at the Small Schools State Invitational in Shorewood last Saturday.

Bolstered by eight top-three finishes, the Black Hawks grabbed runner-up honors in the 16-team meet, which included many of the state’s best Division 2 squads.

Grafton scored 255 points, trailing only the host Greyhounds, who had 302. McFarland was a distant third with 217 points, and New Berlin Eisenhower (216), Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol (215) and Whitefish Bay (212) rounded out the top six.

Among other local teams, Port Washington placed 13th with 56 points.

“I was very pleased with the way it worked out,” said Hawks coach John Douglass. “We’ve been waiting for this meet for a long time.”

Second taste of victory even sweeter for Grafton in 49-12 homecoming romp

The worm has officially turned for the Grafton High School football team.

After finding themselves on the short end of lopsided scores with regularity the past few seasons, the Black Hawks returned the favor for the second time in three weeks last Friday.

Controlling the line of scrimmage and scoring with methodical proficiency, Grafton pummeled Milwaukee Lutheran, 49-12, in an eye-opening homecoming win.

“It was nice. We executed our triple option really well,” said Hawks coach Ben Chossek, whose team improved to 2-4 in North Shore Conference play.

“It was an excellent all-around effort on offense and defense.”

Grafton, which snapped a 26-game losing streak on Sept. 21, doubled its win total for the previous three seasons. This  time, the Hawks left no doubt about their superiority.

Grafton’s seven-touchdown performance included two scores in each of the first three quarters. The Hawks had little need for the pass, piling up 359 rushing yards on 61 attempts.

Balance was a key to the ground attack.
