The ninth annual David Trophy presentations and breakfast will be held Saturday, Feb. 18, starting at 7:30 a.m. at Calvary Community Church.
The purpose of the event is to recognize and encourage honorable character traits in young men from area high school programs and to demonstrate support for the influence of coaches in the lives of maturing young athletes.
Head football coaches from Badger, Big Foot, Delavan-Darien and Elkhorn high schools selected one player from their teams.
The coaches and winners for 2016 are: Badger, coach Matt Hensler and nominee Mason DuMez, quarterback, defensive back and punter; Big Foot, coach Greg Enz, nominee Beau Cary, tight end and defensive end; DDHS, coach Bret St. Arnauld, nominee Ryan Gengler, running back and linebacker; and Elkhorn, coach Tom Lee, nominee Ryan Shilts, running back and defensive back.
Those who wish to attend or want more information should call 262-245-6294. The church is at the corner of Wisconsin Highway 50 and Harris Road in Williams Bay.
Stateline area athletes and teams turned in another banner calendar year in 2016. Here is a look at many of those performances in CSI Media’s annual Year in Review series.
This article focuses on boys and men’s sports. Girls and women’s sports ran last Sunday and can be found at CommunityShoppers.com.
Comets reach the top
Delavan-Darien won the Division 3 state soccer crown Nov. 5, while Southern Lakes rival Elkhorn reached the D-2 title match.
Mike Marse’s Comets walked off with the trophy for a second time in three seasons, defeating Mount Horeb for a second time -- the Vikings won the 2015 title.
DDHS busted loose from a 1-0 first-period lead en route to a 5-1 triumph over Seymour in the semifinals at Uihlein Soccer Park in Milwaukee. Goalie Ricardo Huerta finished with only one save as the Comets outshot the Thunder by a 28-3 margin with five players registering goals.
In the finals showdown, Delavan-Darien opened the scoring with tallies from Julien Riviere and Gerardo Rodriguez in the first 12:27 and held off Mount Horeb the rest of the way for the school’s third trophy in eight appearances while finishing 26-1-2.
The Elks made their second trip and recorded the school’s first state tourney win to reach the championship match for the first time. They fell to Whitefish Bay, 4-0, which notched its second straight title and sixth overall.
Elkhorn wound up 20-4-3, defeating New Richmond, 2-1, in the semis behind Sid Babu’s 16th and 17th goals of the year, including the game winner at 70:11 to overcome a 1-0 deficit.
Demons knock off champs
Burlington eliminated defending champion Janesville Craig in the quarterfinals of the WIAA Division 1 state baseball tournament, using that momentum to carry it to the trophy at Fox Cities Stadium in Grand Chute.
The Demons made their third state appearance a memorable one, and they started it in the second inning of their opener against the Cougars, who had scored three runs on four hits and an error in the first inning. Burlington responded with four runs in the next two innings en route to a 5-3 victory behind standout pitcher Jacob Lindemann, a Wichita State recruit who could get drafted in June 2017.
Burlington then disposed of Green Bay Preble, 9-0, and rallied past Arrowhead after the latter had jumped to a 4-0 cushion after the first inning. The Demons scored twice in the sixth and tacked on four more runs in the seventh inning for the 6-4 win and a 25-5 finish.
Two qualify for football semis
The Badger and Clinton football teams reached the state playoff semifinals in divisions 1 and 5, respectively.
Matt Hensler’s Badgers qualified for the WIAA playoffs for an 11th straight time, advancing to Level 4 for a third time in five years.
Second-seeded Badger disposed of three Big Eight foes by a combined 80-28 before running into Franklin. The Sabers posted a 35-14 victory before grabbing a 14-0 halftime advantage against powerful Kimberly, which ripped off 29 unanswered points to win its fourth consecutive crown.
Badger has accumulated a 10-5 postseason record over the last five years.
Clinton cemented its fourth straight and eighth overall playoff trip, earning three of the school’s four all-time postseason wins.
The Cougars rattled off victories against playoff veterans Marshall (13 trips), Arcadia (23) and Lancaster (26, with seven state titles). Clinton’s season ended, 42-35, at the hands of Cedar Grove-Belgium, which then lost the title game to Amherst, 38-35.
Jeff Spiwak’s Cougars ended 11-2.
Whitewater High School senior Benny Liang finished third in the 100-yard butterfly at the WIAA state Division 2 swimming meet in Madison, cutting nearly 1:40 off his seed time, finishing in 52.28 seconds.
However, his biggest splash again occurred in his specialty event, the 100-yard breaststroke, where he capped off his prep career with his second consecutive D-2 gold medal.
In 2015, Liang entered the competitions with the ninth-best time. He shaved nearly four seconds off that to finish in 59.07 in earning the title. He also swam a leg as the Whippets’ 200 relay team won gold.
In February 2016, Liang, now at Wabash College in Indiana, also saved his best for last, taking a strong lead through the first 50 yards and hanging on, this time clocking a 58.64 to claim the top spot.
Central reaches finale
The Catholic Central boys basketball team advanced to the Division 5 state championship contest, falling to McDonell Central, 63-41.
However, many wouldn’t have predicted the Hilltoppers to get that far, especially when they were sitting at 6-7 overall and saddled with a four-game losing skid on Jan. 23.
But Central went on a seven-game winning streak and entered the postseason having won eight of its last 10. The Hilltoppers then won two regional contests by a combined nine points and two sectional outings by a 17-point margin to reach Madison.
Central got a free throw apiece from Ben Heiligenthal and Frank Koehnke in the final minute for a 37-35 win over Barneveld to reach the finale. Heiligenthal registered 14 points, but the Hilltoppers were no match for McDonell, finishing 19-10 overall.
Grappling with medals
Several area wrestlers made their presence felt at the Kohl Center.
Milton’s Billy Pitzner won the 170-pound title in Division 1 as a junior, posting a 6-4 victory and handing Sawyer Massie of Hudson, a senior, his first loss of the year in the title showdown. Pitzner finished 49-4 after recording two major decisions and a pin en route to his crown.
Elkhorn’s Benji Peak finished third at 113 pounds in D-1. The sophomore registered a 10-1 win and followed it with a pin to reach the semifinals, where he fell, 6-5, to the eventual runner-up. However, Peak rallied for two more decisions to finish 33-4.
Freshman Jackson Hauri of Parkview captured fifth at 106 pounds in D-3, He lost his opener, 9-6, to fall into the wrestlebacks, where he won two of three matches to finish 44-5.
Janesville Parker junior Logan Murdy ended in sixth place at 195 in D-1. He won his opener but lost to eventual unbeaten champion Jacob Raschka of Pewaukee. Murdy then won two matches before losing his final two outings, including an 11-10 decision to settle for sixth.
Circling the track
Craig’s Deon Newson placed fifth in the 300 hurdles (38.83) and ran the second leg in the Cougars’ all-senior foursome that placed sixth in the 400 relay, clocking a 42.73 along with Aristide Serrano, Hozai Ceballos and Peter Larson. The latter also took seventh in the 100 in 11.39.
Beloit Memorial junior Tavien Payton went 22-3 to grab sixth place in the long jump.
In D-2, Evansville senior Noah Schiller ran a 1:56.11 to finish fifth in the 800. East Troy junior Billy Dominski also placed fifth, blazing a 15.26 in the 100 hurdles. Dominski also finished third in the 300 hurdles (39.41), one spot behind Big Foot sophomore Jackson Enz (38.87).
Meanwhile, East Troy senior Jake Wendt captured seventh in the shot put (52-61/4).
Parkview senior Hunter Marshall was a top competitor in Division 3, taking seventh in the 200 (23.30).
Warhawks shine again
UW-Whitewater didn’t quite duplicate most recent history, but Warhawk teams continued to make their presence felt on a national stage.
The football team reached the national quarterfinals, qualifying for the postseason for the 11th time in the last 12 years.
Their campaign ended against John Carroll, 31-14, with a 17-0 third quarter deficit the difference.
UW-W’s soccer team advanced to the second round of the NCAA playoffs, as did the basketball squad. UW-W’s track team was fifth nationally in the outdoor championships.
The UW-W baseball team lost both of its World Series games by a combined three runs. It was the school’s sixth appearance since 2004.
Two in a row
Harrison Hearne’s Hononegah tennis program earned its second league and sectional titles in a row, its only such accomplishments in history.
The Indians’ sectional efforts featured their excellent doubles tandems. Brandon Kim and Hsing-Hao Louh defeated teammates in fellow junior Josh Euhus and sophomore Parker Hearne in the final.
That bodes well for another strong Hononegah run in 2017.
Bucs reach NCAAs
Beloit College’s baseball team shared the North Division title and qualified for the NCAA Division III Midwest Regional tournament after winning its second MWC championship and first since 2009.
The Bucs lost both postseason contests to finish 27-14, which tied for the second-most wins in school history.
Dave DeGeorge was named the league’s top coach, while senior pitcher Ryan Kaveney and junior infielders Mike Gulve and Kam Sallee made the North’s first team.
The journey to the Wisconsin state girls basketball tournament began in earnest with opening games scattered throughout the Stateline this past week.
Here is a roundup of area teams for the 2016-’17 season.
The Comets shared second place with Badger last year with a 9-5 conference mark, three games behind Union Grove and Wilmot. That was a tremendous jump after getting skunked in league play a year earlier.
Delavan-Darien must play without second teamer Jennah Speth, who registered a team-high 13.4 ppg. But it will soldier on in trying to improve on its 13-10 overall record with sophomore standout Katharina Lopez (12.8) and senior Kenna Timmerman (9.8).
Junior Jaida Speth (5.7) and senior Alex Gonzalez (3.1) must take on much bigger roles because Lopez will miss considerable time with an ACL injury.
The Badgers must make up for the loss of Samantha Tisa, who was third in the SLC in scoring at 13.7 and second in rebounds at 7.8, earning a spot on the league’s first team.
Senior Jenn Freeman (11.2) is back after making the second unit, while junior Courtney Oomens (8.1) garnered honorable mention status, and big things are expected from both as Badger tries to better its 12-11 finish.
Juniors Chloe Kleeman (6.2), Marissa Nurnberg (5.1) and Madison Smid (4.2) also possess plenty of experience and will be counted on heavily.
The once-proud program and perennial contender has fallen on hard times, winning fewer games each of the last four seasons since posting a 9-5 conference record in 2011-’12.
And the Elks likely will struggle again after going winless last winter (0-14, 0-23).
Elkhorn also faces life without top performer Megan Skoczylas, who earned honorable mention.
Top returnees include junior Olivia May (3.7) and sophomores Riley Rand (6.3) and Payton Christensen (5.3).
The Demons finished 8-6 in SLC competition and 12-12 overall and should contend for an upper-division spot behind junior star Jessa Burling, who topped the conference in scoring (15.0) and rebounding (8.4). Those efforts placed her on the league’s first team.
Also back is senior Megan Wallace, who averaged 11.2 ppg and earned honorable mention laurels.
This experienced bunch also returns seniors Ashlyn Barry, Mackenzie Zwiebel and Adeline Jachim, who all chipped in from 4.5 to 6 ppg.
Rock Valley North
The 2014-’15 Division 3 state champions fell in the regional finals last year, finishing 22-2 after dominating league action again with a 16-0 mark, six games ahead of McFarland.
Judy Harms’ Whippets should contend for the trophy again behind returning senior first-team choices Myriama Smith-Traore and Rebekah Schumacher. Smith-Traore, the All-Walworth County and conference Player of the Year, averaged 17.4 points, 15.1 rebounds and 5.5 blocked shots and will want to go out on a high note before taking her talents to Marquette University after being the only unanimous Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association D-3 All-State team selection.
Schumacher chipped in 13.6 ppg, led the conference in assists (4.7) and added 4.5 steals. She has committed to NCAA Division II program Quincy University.
And don’t forget honorable mention selections Allison Heckert (9.3) and Ali Ketterhagen, both juniors.
Whitewater is chasing its fourth consecutive North crown and has not lost a league contest since falling to McFarland on Dec. 10, 2013, a string of 40 straight wins.
The Trojans arguably have the league’s biggest hole to fill, losing scoring champion and first teamer Katrina Santos (17.8), who finished second in rebounding (12.6) to Smith-Traore.
Jeff Brown’s returning contingent will include honorable mention choices in senior Maddie Rosin (6.5) and sophomore Mackenzie Lindow (6.1), along with soph Erin Rice (6.9).
East Troy suffered its third consecutive losing campaign after making back-to-back D-2 state tournament appearances, finishing 5-11 in league contests and 9-14 overall.
Rock Valley South
Big Foot is gearing up to eliminate Brodhead’s six-year stranglehold of the league’s top spot, which the rivals shared last winter.
The Chiefs boast a strong lineup despite the loss of leading scorer Morgan Courier, who averaged 13.6 ppg while making the South first team.
That unit also included Courtney Schoenbeck, who scored at an 11.0 clip as a sophomore as Big Foot finished 14-2 in conference competition and 19-5 overall.
Payton Courier also is back for her junior campaign after averaging 10 ppg and making the league’s second team.
Rick Schoenbeck’s squad also features honorable mention seniors Brooke Wellhausen (5.6) and Olivia Briggs (8.8).
Dustin Burg takes over from B.J. Mertens, whose Panthers finished in the conference basement at 1-15 and 3-20.
The Panthers had not defeated a Rock Valley opponent since February 2013, also against Parkview, when they upended the Vikings late last season.
Palmyra-Eagle hopes to improve its perch in the standings behind senior Sarah Seiden and junior Lauren Stefanczyk, who both earned honorable mention laurels.
Seiden led the team at 10.4 ppg, while Stefanczyk was right there at 10.1.
The Bulldogs took their lumps during a 5-11 showing in the conference, but they finished 10-13 overall.
They could move up a notch or two behind the likes of senior Lauren Higgins and juniors Leslie Olson and Bella DeNotto, who all earned honorable mention accolades.
Olson led the offense with 8.3 ppg, while Higgins was second at 7.2 and DeNotto third with 6.1. Higgins topped the team in rebounding at seven per game.
Indian Trails Blue
The Eagles went unbeaten in league action and finished 11-12 overall.
Faith Christian returns a formidable lineup despite losing Sabrina Johnson. Sophomore Zoe Vyskocil joined Johnson on the league’s first team, while senior Moriah Skrede and junior Gretal Botsch earned spots on the second unit and senior Hailey Vyskocil was an honorable mention pick.
Jerod Boyd takes the coaching reins from Suzy Bittmann after Central failed to win a conference outing while compiling a 6-17 overall finish.
Not much is expected of the Hilltoppers this season, although they return senior and honorable mention selection Bridget Bittmann (8.4).
They must replace leading scorer Laura Klein, who pumped in 10.7 ppg.
Sophomores Elizabeth (5.6) and Emma Klein (6.2) will attempt to pick up the slack.
Kerry Storbakken’s Cougars fell one game short of a third consecutive 20-victory season, finishing 19-7, including a 14-4 mark and third-place showing in league play.
Craig must replace one of the program’s top players for a second straight year, losing conference scoring leader and first teamer Delaney Schoenenberger a season after Alison Hughes graduated.
Annie Schumacher (13.0) and Kamryn Brittingham (8.4) also are gone. However, the Cougars’ lineup still features Ali Carlson, who made the third team after averaging 8.8 ppg, and fellow senior Sam Pierson (5.1).
The Vikings’ 9-9 record placed them fifth in the always-tough league race. That helped them finish 14-10 overall, losing four contests by four or less points during Jennah Hartwig’s first year after replacing Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Famer Tom Klawitter.
Parker also must replace its best player in league first team choice Bree Porter, who topped the team at 15.4 ppg, reaching double digits in 22 of 24 outings.
While Porter has taken her skills to NCAA Division II school Hillsdale (Mich.), the Vikings’ fortunes will hinge a lot on senior Julia Hartwig. She led the Big Eight in rebounding (11.0) and averaged 15.3 ppg.
Also back are senior Kameron Blaser (5.6), sophomore Brooke Graesslin (4.0), junior Jacy Benway (3.7) and senior Sydni Brewster (3.1).
The Purple Knights have not won a league game since December 2013, a string of 49 straight losses against rivals.
Teshonna Bennett’s first Memorial squad never tasted victory last year, something the program hasn’t done since the season opener in 2014-’15.
This year’s chances for improvement will depend on players such as senior Sydnee Marshall (4.4) and juniors Aniah Williams (11.1) and Nadiya Connor (5.8).
Full-page commemorative posters will be included in the Nov. 13, 2016 Walworth County Sunday, honoring the Comets and Elks trips to the WIAA state soccer tournament.
State tournament action for girls golf and girls individual tennis are already in the books for the 2016-’17 school year.

League coaches and athletic communications personnel have anointed the Warhawks league favorite again after they finished 6-1 last year and a game behind UW-Oshkosh in their first year under coach Kevin Bullis.
Baseball players know the odds are overwhelmingly against them. But that doesn’t matter when the dream is all about reaching The Show -- the major leagues.
That goal remains within the realm of possibility for 2012 Delavan-Darien High School graduate Bryce Skelton.
Three days after getting his degree in May from Lakeland College in Sheboygan, he joined the Roswell Invaders, a New Mexico franchise in the Pecos League, which also features teams from Colorado, Arizona, Texas and Kansas.
