Five notable performances from area high school athletes over the past week, and five area events to watch for over the next seven days:
Claudia Seeman, Milton girls golf—The Red Hawks junior may have saved her most consistent play for the right time—the postseason. Seeman shot 76 to win the Badger South Conference individual title at The Oaks on Monday. On Wednesday, she was second with a 76 at Janesville’s Riverside Golf Course as Milton won the WIAA Division 1 Parker Regional.
Vince and Luke Umnus, Elkhorn boys soccer—The twin senior brothers each scored a goal to help the Elks win a battle of ranked opponents Thursday. Vince scored in the 40th minute to give Elkhorn—ranked sixth in Division 2—the lead, and Luke gave the team insurance with a tally in the 84th on the way to a 2-0 victory over No. 8 Union Grove.
Jaden Johnson and Devin Jorgenson, Edgerton football—Johnson and Jorgenson continue to run over, around and through Rock Valley opponents. In Friday’s victory at East Troy, Johnson, the quarterback, rushed 31 times for 271 yards and three touchdowns. Jorgenson, a running back, carried 28 times for 208 yards and four scores.
Bryan Bloomquist, Janesville Craig boys cross country—Bloomquist, coming off a top-five finish at the Midwest Invitational last weekend, won the Night Fall Classic in Wisconsin Dells on Friday, turning in a time of 15:36.15. Both the Cougars boys and girls teams won the event.
Kampbell Hehr, Big Foot volleyball—The senior helped the Chiefs win one Rock Valley match and nearly pull an upset in another. Hehr had 18 kills in a sweep of Beloit Turner on Tuesday night. She had 14 kills, 24 assists and three aces Thursday, when the Chiefs took second-place McFarland to five sets.
WHAT TO WATCH FOR
Sectional golf, Tuesday and Wednesday—Lake Geneva Badger hosts a Division 1 sectional Wednesday and will likely be the favorite, though it was Milton that captured the regional title. Parker and Craig will also compete there and will be looking for an upset. Edgerton competes Tuesday in the Edgewood Sectional.
Janesville Craig at Middleton, volleyball, 6:30 p.m., Tuesday—The Cougars have a chance to pull into a tie for third place, at worst, with a victory in this volleyball match. Middleton’s lone Big Eight loss is to Verona, though a date with Sun Prairie still looms.
Badger at Elkhorn, football, 7 p.m., Friday—The winner of this one gets to 4-4 and has a chance to clinch a playoff spot in the final week of the season. The loser will likely be left out of the postseason picture.
Milton at Oregon, boys soccer, 7 p.m., Tuesday—The two Badger South rivals square off with the visiting Red Hawks hoping to play spoiler. They sit at 3-1-1 in the league standings, so a victory would tie them with the Panthers, who are 4-0-1.
Girls tennis subsectionals and sectionals—The tennis players’ road to state will be traveled quickly this week, with subsectionals Monday and Tuesday and sectionals Wednesday and Thursday.
