A young hockey player from Port Washington has joined the ranks of national champions this spring.

Sloan Sullivan, a sophomore at Shattuck-St. Mary’s School in Faribault, Minn., helped lead her girls’ 16-and-under  team to first place at the USA Hockey National Championships in San Jose, Calif., on April 8.


A starting defenseman, Sullivan co-captained a squad that rallied to defeat defending champion Assabet Valley (Mass.), 4-3, in the Tier-I title game. On the way to the final, Shattuck-St. Mary’s outscored its opponents, 23-1, in pool play and won two elimination games.


Shattuck-St. Mary’s trailed, 3-2, in the title game before scoring two third-period goals.


Sullivan, who attended kindergarten through eighth grade in the Port Washington-Saukville School District, started playing hockey at age 9. She has played on AAA girls’ teams during the regular season and in summer leagues and was chosen to attend national camps.

If there was ever a time for coach Scott Soerens to be thankful for a deep pitching staff, this spring is it.

His Cedar Grove-Belgium softball team can hand the ball to three strong-armed girls. With makeup games filling up the Rockets’ schedule, that’s a gift.

Kasie Feind, Mandi Race and Hannah Dirkse have shared pitching duties so far.


“I’m trying to divide them up a little bit with this many games. I don’t want anybody getting too beat up,” Soerens said.


Last week, the Rockets went 4-2 in six games. They capped the week with an 11-9 home loss to Sheboygan Lutheran/Kohler in a Central Lakeshore Conference contest Friday.


Feind pitched the first four innings, and Race worked the final three.


The previous day, Cedar Grove-Belgium swept Stockbridge in a doubleheader, 11-7 and 19-7.


In the first game, Feind pitched two innings and Dirkse four. In the second game, Race went four innings and Dirkse two.


“Hannah Dirkse picking up six innings on Thursday was huge,” Soerens said.

The Grafton High School softball team rode the strong arm of pitcher Amanda Hunt and made the most of its scoring chances Monday.

Despite managing just four hits, the Black Hawks downed host Port Washington, 5-1, in a North Shore Conference game.

Grafton jumped ahead early and built a 3-0 lead by scoring single runs in the second, third and fourth innings.

After Port scored in the fourth inning, the Hawks added two insurance runs in the fifth.

Hunt, a junior, went the distance for the win. She struck out 12 batters and walked one.

The loss went to Maggie Schmit, who pitched the first five innings. She struck out two and walked six.

The only batter with more than one hit was Grafton’s Jackie Corner, who went 2-for-3 with an RBI.
