Malik Tiedt, Burlington
The Burlington High School boys volleyball team had a pair of strong showings last week, thanks in large part to Malik Tiedt.
The junior outside hitter had a pair of strong performances to help the Demons beat Wilmot 3-1 in a Southern Lakes Conference match and to help them tie for fifth in the 24-team Racine Invitational.
Against Wilmot, Tiedt had 16 kills. In the Racine Invitational, Tiedt had 38 kills for Burlington (7-4-1), which beat Kenosha Indian trail and lost to Milwaukee Pius XI in the final round.
Abby Koenen, Burlington
Senior outside hitter Abby Koenen helped the Burlington High School girls volleyball team validate its No. 9 ranking in the WVCA Division 1 state poll, winning the Gold Bracket of the West Allis Hale Invitational Saturday and beating Racine County rival Union Grove Thursday.
Koenen had 17 kills in the Demons’ 3-1 victory over the Broncos, then picked it up a notch in the Hale Invitational with 33 kills and a .373 hitting percentage. The Demons beat host Hale 25-16, 25-18 in the final.
Waterford boys cross country
The Wolverines will be a force in cross country this season and showed what they can do when everyone is on the same page.
Waterford had all five of its runners finish in the top 10, all in a span of 47 seconds, at the Southern Lakes Conference Relays Thursday at Fox River Park. The Wolverines had a final combined time of 1:28.35, just 31 seconds better than Lake Geneva Badger (1:29.06).
Senior Josh Butscher finished second in the boys junior-senior race in 17:10 to lead Waterford.
