Huertas’ sprint victories, 1,600 relay title help Grafton boys leave their marks in state track and field record book

With three first-place state medals in his possession, Erick Huertas became a master of understatement.

“I had a pretty good meet,” the Grafton High School senior said following his eye-opening work at the rain-delayed WIAA Division 2 track and field finals in La Crosse last weekend.


“I felt pretty confident going into the competition, and things worked out very well.”


Living up to expectations, Huertas raced to championships in the 200 and 400-meter dashes and anchored the Black Hawks’ first-place 1,600 relay.


Huertas breezed to his second straight state title in the 400, breaking the tape in 48.43 seconds after setting a Division 2 record of 47.86 in the preliminaries. Last year, he won the Division 1 crown in the same event.


Things didn’t come as easily in the 200, though.


Huertas was pressed by Cedar Grove-Belgium’s Aaron Chier in a photo finish that judges had to review for several minutes before determining the winner.


The title went to Huertas in 22.085 seconds, just .002 ahead of Chier.


“I was very surprised,” Huertas said of the eye-lash victory. “It was a very stressful couple of minutes, but I was happy to get the win.”


Chier, a junior, had an outstanding sprinting season but wasn’t expected to press Huertas, who came into the meet as the top seed in both the 200 and 400.


“We really didn’t know who won,” Grafton coach Kevin Kriegel said of the duel.

Oostburg ousts Rockets on penalty kicks after teams battle to 1-1 tie in regional

A longtime rival put an end to the Cedar Grove-Belgium girls’ soccer season last Saturday.

After splitting two Central Lakeshore Conference games with the Rockets, Oostburg had the final word with a shootout victory in a WIAA Division 4 regional title game in Cedar Grove.


The teams battled to a 1-1 tie through regulation and two 10-minute overtimes, sending the match to penalty kicks.


The Lady Dutch prevailed by converting three shots to the Rockets’ two.


After Ashli von Heimburg and Brooke Keller each made their attempts, Oostburg goalkeeper Leah Ebbers stopped the Rockets’ final attempt.


The game mirrored Cedar Grove-Belgium’s tournament finale last year, when it was also ousted in a regional-final shootout against Oostburg.


The Rockets (13-8-3) grabbed an early lead Saturday when von Heimburg scored  an unassisted goal in the seventh minute.


Oostburg tied the game with an unassisted goal by Krystle Van Deursen in the 32nd minute.  


“It was a tremendous final game for this young group of girls,” Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Elias Garza.

Ozaukee girls dig down for comeback win that sends them into Div. 4 sectionals

Clutch play in pressure situations carried the Ozaukee girls’ soccer team to a WIAA Division 3 state title last season.

Although the Warriors are making this year’s postseason run in Division 4, their flair for the dramatic continued in another big game Saturday.


This time, host Ozaukee rallied to edge Hustisford, 2-1, in double overtime and secure a regional championship.


Halee VandeBoom capped the comeback in the 92nd minute, slipping through the defense to score off a long pass from Kait Paetzke.


“We got down a goal early in a tight, physical game and put ourselves in position where we had to fight back,” Warriors coach Eric Liebergen said.


Third-seeded Hustisford grabbed the advantage in the 12th minute. Kristen Margelofsky made it 1-0 on a header off a cross from Brianna Jochem.


The Falcons (16-4-1) maintained the lead until early in the second half. In the process, they withstood several attacks by second-seeded Ozaukee, including a shot that deflected off the post.


But in the 44th minute, the Warriors (17-4-3) made another run and drew a foul in the penalty area.


Lizzie Janke converted the penalty kick to tie the game.
