Milton High School hopes to make its third appearance in the WIAA girls state golf team tournament in four years after falling short of making the Division 1 field last fall.

The Red Hawks and other Stateline area squads hit the postseason trail starting Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 1 and Oct. 2.

The other 11 regional events are scheduled Oct. 1, while the Milton Regional will be Oct. 2 at the Red Hawks’ home layout, Oak Ridge Golf Course.

Senior Maddie McCue and junior CheyAnn Knudsen qualified as individuals in 2013, shooting two-day totals of 158 and 162, and hope to carry sixth-ranked Milton back to Madison’s University Ridge again as a team.

The Red Hawks finished only one stroke behind mighty Edgewood in the Badger Conference meet to end the regular season. Milton placed second in 2011 and fourth in 2012 at state, and freshman Mia Seeman and sophomore Leah Foster will be counted on to help them make a return visit.

The regional field also features honorable mention Janesville Parker, Janesville Craig, Beloit Memorial, Badger and Elkhorn.

Parker, behind senior standout Kailey McDade, also should contend for a spot in the sectional that the Vikings will host at Riverside Golf Course the following week.

Meanwhile, Edgerton and Beloit Turner will participate in the Edgewood Regional in Division 2 competition at Yahara Hills. The Crusaders have won three straight and 10 of the 11 Division 2 championships ever held, not to mention the last two single-class tourneys in 2001-’02.

The top teams and individual advancers from that event will play at Trapper’s Turn in the Wisconsin Dells Sectional.

Chandler latest Kayser to star for Elkhorn soccer

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Chandler Kayser hasn’t needed to look far for quality role models. His father, Quentin “BZ” Kayser, is the head boys soccer coach at Elkhorn Area High School. His brother, Jordan, was the Southern Lakes Conference’s top performer in 2011 and played at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.

Janesville prep rivals become college teammates

JANESVILLE MESSENGER -- Austin Schleisner and Decker Thompson used to be cross-town football rivals in Janesville, the former at Craig and the latter at Parker.

Read the current edition here:

Now they’re college teammates at Ripon College, defensive starters and juniors majoring in business management.

LAKE GENEVA -- Some leaders are easy to spot, while others prefer to avoid the spotlight. Alex Martinez falls into the latter category.

However, the Badger High School senior takes that role seriously, and his cross-country teammates tend to follow.

JANESVILLE -- Speed, quickness, versatility and athleticism. That’s why they call them skill positions. And Janesville Craig’s offense features plenty of them to torment Big Eight Conference opponents this season.

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Shaving seconds off times becomes painstakingly more difficult in high school swimming. But Kaarin Quaerna has accomplished it her first three years with Badger’s co-op team.

Read the current edition here:

And if she does it again during this year’s postseason, she could be standing at or near the top of the podium at UW-Madison’s Natatorium in mid-November.

JANESVILLE MESSENGER -- McKenzie Bertagnoli knows she needs to fill two vital roles this season as one of only three seniors on the Janesville Craig volleyball team.

Read the current edition here:

This is her fourth year on the varsity, so she will need to continue producing on the court for the Cougars to remain competitive after finishing in fifth place in the Big Eight Conference with a 5-4 dual match record.

WALWORTH COUNTY TODAY -- Coaches say that handling success oftentimes is tougher than swallowing losing. Apparently Lance Leipold has patented the elixir he’s been selling to his University of Wisconsin-Whitewater football team.

Read the current edition here:

Leipold’s Warhawks have won NCAA Division III national championships in five of his seven seasons since replacing Hall of Famer Bob Berezowitz, putting them second only to the dynasty of Mount Union (Ohio), which has earned 11 trophies.

STATELINE NEWS -- Seth Duerr knows he can’t sugarcoat many of the numbers: Beloit College’s football team struggled mightily in 2013, posting 1-8 and 1-9 records in the Midwest Conference and overall, respectively.

Read the current edition here:

And that starts with rejuvenating a porous defense, which is the first-year Buccaneer coach’s specialty. Duerr was a first-team linebacker all four years at the College of Wooster (Ohio) and then served as defensive coordinator at his alma mater for seven years and two more at Tiffin University.

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Mary Dodge’s volleyball career has ballooned so much that she already has committed to play at the University of Wisconsin, and she’s just starting her junior season at East Troy High School.

Read the current edition here:

But that’s appropriate, because it started with her mom, Linda, and balloons -- literally.
