HAMILTON GIRLS TRACK
At the Wisconsin State Indoor Track and Field Championships on April 8 at UW-Whitewater, Hamilton's 4x400 relay team came away with the best results possible. The team of Morgan Price, Taylor Fuerstenberg, Megan Jansett and Bianca Stubler won the title with a time of 4:03.28.
"We targeted this meet as a meet that we wanted to do really well in," coach Ben Nysse said. "Now with spring break and a couple other things, we're probably not going to show our best groups really until May."
The 4x200 relay team of Stubler, Elizabeth Behrndt, Jansett and Price finished second with a time of 1:46.46. Rachel Seraphine came in sixth in the pole vault with a height of 10-6.
Rachel Jeffers took 12th in the 1,600 (5:25.68) and Rachel Passow placed 20th in the 800 (2:29.89).
The Chargers came in sixth (21 points) out of 45 teams.

The Warhawks held their own and better in the Wisconsin Dells Tournament this past weekend at the Woodside Sports Complex.
They defeated fifth-ranked Muskego, 2-1, on April 7 and then came back on April 8 to tie ninth-ranked Madison West, 2-2.
Against Muskego, the first goal came from Hannah Schaetzel, which was assisted by Courtney Hoppe and Haley Gruener. Megan French scored the second goal from 20 yards out on an unassisted shot. The girls battled hard this game and were able to create many opportunities on the offensive side of the ball, said coach Paul Sikinger.
Against West, Gruener scored first in the game on a well-placed shot from 18 yards out.
"This was a frustrating game because we were dangerous offensively but could not finish the opportunities," said Sikinger. "We had two defensive errors that let Madison West take a 2-1 lead. Megan French found the back of the net to tie the game at 2-2 on a great individual effort in the box."
Sikinger said that Courtney Hoppe was dangerous the whole game and created many opportunities for the Warhawks to take the lead. She had a shot from 25 yards out that hit the crossbar with 10 minutes left in the game.
The Warhawks, 1-1-2 overall, lost a tough 1-0 decision to defending state division 2 champion Homestead on April 5.

The Chargers improved to 2-0-1 with a 13-0 victory over West Allis Central on April 5. On April 7, Hamilton tied Hartford, 1-1.
Against Central, Maddie Fahey led with four goals and an assist. Isabel Downs, Cayla Provan, and Allie Eichmann scored two goals each. Celia Janowski, Lindsay Macaluso, and Maddie Adams added one goal each.
"The weather wasn't that great that day," coach Chris Zuzick said. "It's just one of the early challenges of playing spring soccer in Wisconsin, but we came away with a victory. We had no problems with finishing. Obviously, we spread the scoring around."
The win improved Hamilton's Greater Metro Conference record to 2-0.
In the Hartford game, Provan found Fahey, who put the ball in the back of the net in the fifth minute.
"That was a game where our goal was to score in the first 10 minutes and we did," Zuzick said.
Hartford tied it at 1-1 in the first half.
"From that point forward, we probably possessed the ball 80 percent of the time and took 14 shots on goal," Zuzick said. "We struggled a little bit with our finishing and our first touch. We had opportunities to win the game but we just did not have that level of detail you need to have to put the game in the back of the net."
Hamilton keeper Meghan Cannestra had four saves in the game.
On April 6, Hamilton defeated Greater Metro Conference rival Brookfield East in six innings, 13-3. HHS outhit East, 15-9.
"We had a great team effort," Hamilton coach Tom Schlueter said. "We were really good defensively. Brookfield East played a short game with a lot of bunting and slapping. Our team, especially our infield, did a great job of defending the bunting game. We had a few key bunts ourselves on offense. I suppose with all the rain and indoor practice, we were ready for that type of game."
HHS took a 2-0 lead after the first inning, but East went up 3-2 midway through the third. In the bottom half of the inning, the Chargers scored eight runs.
Morgan Dercola, Madison Earing, and McKenna Walczak had three hits each for Hamilton. Earing led with three RBIs.
Taylor Earing, Keri Bohlmann, Dercola and Maddy Sprinkel registered two RBIs each. Taylor Hibickie and Walczak had one RBI each.
Bohlmann struck out three batters and gave up three walks in six innings of work on the mound.

HHS opened the season with a 355 at the Washington County Invite on April 8.
"First time out is always the unknown," Hamilton coach Dan Heckman said. "We had a windy day but beautiful weather in terms of the temperature but quite a breeze. It was the first time our kids have played 18 holes. We were respectable but we've still got a lot of room for improvement."
Jared Christensen had the team's low score of 82 and was followed by Cooper Vance's 88. Rob Weber shot a 92, Dominic Pino carded a 93 and Bennett DeGeorge rounded out the scoring with a 101.
"Jared shot a solid 82 but all five golfers left a ton of shots out on the course," Heckman said. "We need to really tighten up our short game and get that going."
