Grafton baseball team wastes no time impressing by scoring shutout wins over first two opponents

How do you make a good impression on the opening weekend of the baseball season?

If you’re the Grafton Black Hawks, you waste no time putting away a pair of nonconference foes with a steady dose of timely hitting, stingy pitching and steady defense.

The combination added up to a pair of 10-0 victories, including a five-inning home win over Shorewood on Friday and a six-inning win at Sheboygan Falls on Saturday.

“It was a great way to start the season,” Grafton coach Brian Durst said. “We got two wins, and we had the chance to use a lot of guys and give some of them their first varsity experience.”

The Hawks struck quickly against Shorewood, scoring eight runs in the first inning on just four hits. The Greyhounds helped out by committing three errors and issuing two walks, as Grafton sent 11 batters to the plate.

After a bases-loaded walk brought in one run, a dropped fly ball made it 3-0. Adam Lukas followed with a two-run double and scored on a single by Will Birch to make it 6-0.

Bryan Sternig capped the surge by tripling in a run and scoring on an errant throw on the same play.

“It was nice to see us come out strong,” Durst said. “The big first inning set the tone for the game.”

Grafton drops overmatched foe to advance to next round in WIAA softball tournament

For some fans, Grafton’s 30-0 win over Brown Deer in a WIAA softball playoff game May 22 was an eye-opening trouncing.

But for Grafton coach Ken Hunt, the regional quarterfinal victory was simply the first step in what he hoped would be a long run in the Division 3 tournament.

“It was a win. By the third inning, I was using all my JV and reserve players,” Hunt said.

“We didn’t steal bases or try to run up the score.”

Host Grafton ended the suspense quickly against an overmatched foe that went 0-19 this season.

The Black Hawks (12-6) scored 11 times in the first inning and added seven, five and seven runs in the next three frames, respectively.

Grafton outhit the Falcons, 14-3.

Ally Parsons led the Hawks by going 4-for-4 with a triple, two doubles and six RBI.

Nicole Auchter was 2-for-2 with two RBI, and Danielle Koziczkowski was 1-for-2 and scored three runs.

This week, Grafton advanced into a regional semifinal at 5 p.m. Wednesday against host Kewaskum.

Wednesday’s winner will play for the regional championship Thursday against the winner of a game between Port Washington and top-seeded Mayville.

The title contest will be on the home field of the highest-seeded team.

A tough road loss dampened the Ozaukee soccer team’s hope for a Central Lakeshore Conference championship May 22.

After taking a 2-1 lead against Oostburg in a battle of title contenders, the Warriors saw the lead fade into a 3-2 defeat.


Cheyenne Thien sparked a late rally by the home team by providing the tying goal in the 64th minute and adding the winning score in the closing minutes.


Oostburg improved its CLC record to 8-3-1, while Ozaukee fell to 9-3. Starting this week, both teams trail first-place Cedar Grove-Belgium (9-2-1) and runner-up Howards Grove (8-2-1).


Warriors coach Eric Liebergen called the loss a “disappointing result for us, with our chances for the conference title lessened.”


“We need to play with more urgency and protect our leads,“ he said. “Our defense is better than what we played.”


Ozaukee scored first when Emily Janke raced past the Lady Dutch defense and found the net in the eighth minute.


“It was a great hustle goal,” Liebergen said.


Oostburg answered two minutes later when Sam Richter scored on a follow-up shot off a free kick. Janke put the Warriors up, 2-1, in the 56th minute, setting the stage for Thien’s heroics.


Liebergen singled out the work of goalkeeper Kaylee Klopp.
