It was a day of domination for the Waterford High School girls cross country team at the Southern Lakes Conference Relays.
The Union Grove boys made it a county sweep in the annual meet.
The Wolverines won by more than four minutes in the girls’ race, while the Broncos had a margin of just under eight minutes for their victory in the boys race at Lutherdale Bible Camp in Elkhorn.
Waterford’s 1-2 punch of junior Kelsey Radobicky and senior Jayda Obluck continue to be a force to be reckoned with. Radobicky won the junior/senior race and was first overall in 20:18.39 — almost a minute ahead of second-place finisher Heaven Anderson of Westosha Central (21:14.15) — and Obluck was fourth in 22:18.97.
“Kelsey and Jayda continue to be a strong 1-2 punch for us and our newcomers did a great job of coming in and rounding the rest of our team off,” Waterford coach Nate Schreiber said.
The Wolverines’ top five runners were rounded out by freshmen Lucy Younk and Kyra Schuerman, with Younk finishing third in the freshman/sophomore race in 22:48.61 and Schuerman finishing fourth in 23:04.00, and senior Julia Schroeder, who was ninth in the junior/senior race in 23:40.23. Waterford’s total time was 1:52:10.22, well ahead of runner-up Lake Geneva Badger (1:56:13.18).
“The freshmen raced like they’ve been there before,” Schreiber said. “They’re very poised and competitive and with our group being as competitive as it is, I don’t even know who our top five runners will be by October.”
The Union Grove girls finished third (1:58:22.92) and were led by freshman Riley Kayler, who was second in the freshman/sophomore race in 22:30.06. The Broncos also got top-10 finishes in the junior/senior race from senior Riley Calouette (seventh in 22:44.19) and junior Karly Martinez (eighth in 22:57.98).
The Burlington girls were seventh (2:08:28.33) and had a top-10 finish in the freshman/sophomore race by sophomore Marlee Nichols (10th in 23:41.68).
The Union Grove boys dominated the junior/senior race with four top-10 finishes to win the title in 1:32:50.96, just ahead of Badger (1:32:58.56).
Broncos senior Kevin Hall was first overall and won the junior/senior race in 17:42.16, and was followed by junior teammate Marcus Johnson, who was second (fourth overall among boys) in 18:07.31. Junior Hunter Reich was fourth (sixth overall) in 18:14.44 and senior Tommy Bretl was eighth in 18:36.88.
Burlington finished fifth (1:38:29.26) and was led by senior Kodi Krueger, seventh in the junior/senior race (18:36.60).
Waterford was sixth (1:39:59.73) and was led by junior Connor Warnke, who was 13th in the junior/senior race (19:14.19).
CATHOLIC CENTRAL: The Lady Toppers finished third of seven teams with 101 points and had two top-10 finishes at the Whitnall Invitational at Hales Corners Park.
Sophomore Morgan Ramsey was eighth in 22:09.27 and sophomore Bernadette Frisch was ninth in 22:11.26.
The boys finished ninth of 12 teams with 199 points and had a top-10 finish by senior Sam Henderson, who was ninth in 18:24.62.
UNION GROVE 9, BURLINGTON 0: The Broncos opened Southern Lakes Conference play in dominating fashion as they shut out the Demons at Burlington.
Union Grove (3-2-2, 1-0 SLC) got on the board early and often off the foot of Logan Farrington, who opened the scoring in the second minute and added four more goals before the end of the half to give the Broncos a 5-0 lead.
Jackson Barber added two goals in the second half and Sawyer Richardson and Jacob Howard had one each.
“I am pleased with how the boys played, despite some sloppy play in the first half,” Union Grove coach Sean Jung said. “I give Burlington a lot of credit — they played hard tonight and challenged us despite what the score was.”
Mitchell Curtin earned his first shutout of the season, making two saves.
WATERFORD 12, WILMOT 0: The Wolverines started off their Southern Lakes Conference schedule with a rout Thursday at Waterford.

WHITEFISH BAY 3, CASE 1: The Eagles could not overcome a slow start in a nonconference match at Whitefish Bay.
Case (3-2-3) had a few sloppy plays in the first half, coach Gregg Anderle said, which led to them trailing 3-0 at the half.
Mati Degefa scored for Case in the 72nd minute to avert the shutout.
Chase Werner made eight saves in goal.
BURLINGTON 3, UNION GROVE 0: The Demons struggled early, coach Mike Jones said, but overcame their early difficulties and adjusted to the Broncos’ defense at the net Thursday to win a Southern Lakes Conference match 25-17, 25-22, 25-19 at Burlington.
Burlington (10-4-2, 2-0 SLC) had some communication issues early on and Union Grove blocked well at the net, but the Demons’ offense and solid serving kept them on the attack, Jones said.
Sam Lois led the offense with 15 kills and David Paul had 37 assists along with three aces. Tyler Duesing had 10 digs and Wyatt Kurth and Michael McGinley each had two blocks.

St. Catherine’s/Lutheran (1-3, 0-2 SLC) was a little shell-shocked by the much improved Falcons, coach Kara Avery said, and it cost them in the first two sets.
The Angels won the third set, but with just seven players available, fatigue set in during the last set.
Evan Schuster had 11 kills, Jared Sandkuhler had four blocks, Dylan Kaisler had 25 assists and Tye Ojala had 10 digs.

“We didn’t strike the ball particularly well today, but the girls did a good job around the greens,” Union Grove coach Eric Swanson said. “This was our third event away from home this week (with two more to go), so I think they handled some fatigue pretty well.”
