CG-B, Ozaukee standouts advance to state with strong finishes in sectional meets


The Cedar Grove-Belgium track and field teams got several personal-best performances in WIAA sectional competition last week but qualified only one athlete for the Division 2 state meet.

Zacke Lyons advanced to this weekend’s competition in La Crosse with strong finishes in two events at the Freedom Sectional on May 26.

The senior placed third in the long jump (20 feet, 4 inches) and triple jump (46-6-3/4).

“Zacke has been very consistent all year and jumped well but knows he didn’t get his best stuff out even yet,” Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Les Paul said.

“We have high hopes for a podium place in the triple jump at La Crosse.”

The Cedar Grove-Belgium boys placed 23rd out of 29 teams with 12 points from Lyons’ two finishes.

In the girls’ portion of the meet, the Rockets scored seven points, good for 25th out of 32 teams.

The girls’ best finish came from freshman Molly Ison, who took fifth in the 400-meter dash (1 minute, 0.55 seconds).

Junior Kiera Depies was seventh in the 3,200 run (a team-record 11:57.4), and the 1,600 relay of senior Jackie Bruggink, Ison and seniors Erika Meinen and Marina Paul was eighth (4:18.47).

“Kiera Depies ran good, focusing on the 3,200, but again the competition was really fast,” Paul said.

“We had a good season and surely got faster, stronger towards the end.”

Paul said he was sad to say goodbye to his teams’ seniors, including standouts such as Joel Merritt, Tyler Garcia and Kyle Droppers for the boys and Marina Paul, Bruggink, Carina Deppiesse, Erika Meinen and Laura Lamers for the girls.

Stahl shines on way to Div. 3 state meet

In Division 3, Ozaukee had one athlete advance to the state level. Junior Noah Stahl won the high jump by clearing a personal-best 6-3 at the Princeton Sectional on May 26.

“Eclipsing that 6-foot mark in regionals was a psychological turning point for Noah,” Ozaukee coach Christopher Weavers said.

Weavers said Stahl has benefited from working with Aaron Brown, an Ozaukee graduate who has competed in the high jump at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.

“Aaron Brown has brought improved technique and consistency to Noah’s jumps,” Weavers said.

The Ozaukee boys scored 13 points in the meet, good for 21st place. In addition to Stahl’s win, the Warriors’ points came on a sixth-place finish from the 800 relay team of junior Devon Linzenmeyer, senior Jason Gensrick and sophomores Hunter
Hess and Steve Street (1:36.25).

The Ozaukee girls failed to score. Their best finishes were 10th-place efforts from Natalie Clark in the high jump (4-6) and the 1,600 relay of Lisa Wojciechowski, Sarah Brown, Bailey Johnson and Aman Gill (4:32.06).

The state meet will be held Friday and Saturday in Memorial Stadium at UW-La Crosse. Division 2 and 3 competition begins at 9:30 a.m. both days.

Grafton, Port athletes equal to challenge as they soar into Div. 1 finals


After spending much of the season chasing opponents in the team standings, the Grafton Black Hawks stood tall last week in the pursuit of berths to the WIAA Division 1 State Track and Field Meet.

Coach Kevin Kriegel watched his boys’ and girls’ squads each turn in five state-qualifying performances at the Homestead Sectional on May 26, giving Grafton its largest coed contingent at the state finals in recent memory.

Junior Jason Zahn led the Grafton boys by advancing in the discus (with a first-place throw of 170 feet, 10 inches) and the shot put (second, 51-3-3/4). Also qualifying were sprinters Marcus Hill and Justin Tomashek, both in the 400 dash and as members of the 1,600 relay team.

Hill, a sophomore, won the dash (49.92), and Tomashek, a senior, was second (50.65). They were joined on a third-place 1,600 relay (3:24.85) by freshman Erick Huertas and senior Stefan Lundgren.

Setting the pace for the state-bound Grafton girls are sophomores Cathy Brunette and Sara Grange.

Brunette placed second in the high jump (5-3) and 100 hurdles (15.46), and Grange was second in the 200 dash (25.66) and third in the 100 dash (12.48).

Both of Grange’s times set team records.

The duo also joined juniors Emily Schreiner and Carrie Herian on a qualifying 400 relay team that took second (49.99).

The top three finishers in each sectional event qualified for the state meet along with the additional finishes that rank among the eight best in all sectionals.

“It was a great meet for us, very exciting to see,” Kriegel said. “All of them stepped up and did what they needed to get through to state.”

Port Washington will also be well-represented in the Division 1 state meet, which will be held Friday and Saturday, June 3 and 4, at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.

Qualifying for the Port boys at the Oshkosh West Sectional were senior Joe McIlree in the 400 dash (first, 51.34) and the 3,200 relay team of McIlree, Augie Yates, Justin Fote and Jared Sandlin (third, 8:05.53).

The Pirates had three girls advance, all with third-place finishes — senior Payton Greisch in the 400 dash (59.92), senior Marly Trier in the discus (120-6) and sophomore Bianca Benkley in the 1,600 run (5:17.78).

Greisch qualified for state for the third time in her specialty. Trier advanced for the second time in the discus, and Benkley returns to state after qualifying in the 3,200 run last year.

Port girls’ coach Joe Adamak was pleased with his team’s sectional performance, noting that the meet “was arguably one of the toughest in the state.”

“The girls who got through did very well. Their experience at state should help them,” he said.

Among all Port qualifiers, Trier may have the best shot at earning a state medal. She’s seeded fifth in her event, highest among the Pirates. Benkley is seeded 14th, and Greisch 15th.

“It’s tough when you’ve got that many people ahead of you,” Adamak said.

Port boys’ coach Mark Pasten was impressed by his state qualifiers, noting McIlree ran a personal-best time in the 400 dash and the relay team recovered from a slow start “by really picking it up at the end” for a season-best time.

“It was a tough sectional field with a lot of good teams,” Pasten said.

The Pirate boys had strong shots at state berths in three other events but came up short, Pasten noted. He singled out the 1,600 relay of Boomer Scheel, Fote, Sandlin and McIlree (fourth, 3:30.27), Zach Hauser in the discus (sixth, 139-4) and Sandlin
in the 800 run (eighth, 2:45.51).

Sandlin entered the meet as the top seed in the 800 run but was tripped by another runner at the 500-meter mark and fell.

The Port girls scored 35 points, good for ninth place in a 17-team field. Kimberly was first with 127 points, and Neenah was second with 120.

In the boys’ portion of the meet, the Pirates took 12th with 31 points. Kimberly won the title with 117 points, and runner-up West Bend West had 77.

Zahn and Brunette are both making return trips to state, having qualified in the discus and 100 hurdles, respectively, last year.

Zahn will be among the favorites in the discus, coming in as the No. 4 seed. He is ranked 20th in the shot put.

In the 400 dash, Hill is seeded sixth, and Tomashek is 15th.

The Grafton boys’ 1,600 relay is ranked ninth.

For the Grafton girls, the 400 relay is seeded fifth. Brunette is ranked eighth in the 100 hurdles and 11th in the high jump, but she has cleared 5-6 this season in the latter event — a height that would put her in strong medal contention.

Grange is seeded ninth in both dashes.

“We’re going up there to do something, not just to get there,” Kriegel said. “We have some good chances to get medals.”

The Grafton boys placed sixth in the sectional meet with 46 points. Arrowhead won the team title with 149 points, and Homestead was second with 129.

Among the girls, Grafton was seventh with 51 points. Arrowhead took first with 158 points, and Whitefish Bay was a distant second with 73.

Division 1 competition in the state meet at Memorial Stadium will begin at 4:30 p.m. Friday and resume at 9:30 a.m. Saturday.
