Athletics and Activities
Oriole Boys Win!
Exhaling occurred on both sides of the court as the buzzer went off  Friday night to close the West Bend East-Hartford Union North Shore Conference contest.  Visiting Hartford coach Kevin McKenna's was a sigh of relief after Jacob Pepin caught a nearly full court baseball pass near his own basket, pump faked once, then dribbled  out toward the middle of the court to end the Orioles' 53-51 road win.  Host coach Kevin Fueger's sigh was one of - consternation, perhaps frustration. His Suns (2-2, 2-1 NSC) scrambled back from a 15-point deficit (3924) with 10:50 remaining in the contest only to come up one basket short. East's surge included netting six points in a 29 second span. Ben Seaman stole an inbounds pass and laid it in for a 51-47 score. After Jadon Melvin sank a pair of foul shots, Dylan Polster's putback cut the deficit to four again at 53-49. Keghan Tighe's steal led to a Joey Michels layup with nine seconds remaining, and East immediately put on its final full-court press. But Hartford senior forward Josh Much found a clean inbounds pass, and the ball was lofted toward Pepin. The Orioles guard caught it, then maintained control to close the game out.

Oriole Girls Hold on for a Win
Hartford Union's girls withstood the drought.  After a basket on their first possession, the Orioles went cold. But it didn't seem to affect them in a 47-34 victory against West Bend East during a North Shore Conference game Friday "That's been the run of our season," Hartford Union  coach Christian Schnell said. "We go through our droughts, and we just need someone to get some more scores."  Maddy Sieczkowski made a 3-pointer to give the Orioles (2-4, 2-2 NSC) a quick 3-0 lead. For the next seven minutes, Hartford did not score.  East (3-4, 0-4 NSC) took advantage and scored 11 points. With a Katelyn Matenaer driving layup, the Suns lead 11-3 with  10:40  left until halftime.  "West Bend East kept it dirty. They were mucking things up," Schnell said of the Suns' defense.  Click  here to read the full article.

Boys Swim Black Hawk Invite
After a fun and fast day of racing, the Hartford-Slinger Oriowls took 5th at the Black Hawk Invite, a jump of 4 places over last year's finish.  Considering we were the smallest team on deck, that is quite an achievement. Bringing home 6 individual medals and 2 sets of relay medals helped that happen. With the wins over the last two weeks, our team is looking strong and fast for the season.  In highlight, Santiago started the meet off with a 1st in 200 Free, leading the pack throughout the event.  An hour later, he took 1st in the 500 Free, taking an early lead in the 2nd 50, never looking back. He was 3 seconds faster than his closest competitor from Verona.  Jordan moved up from his seeding in both the 50 and 100 free to earn a 6th place medal in both.
Cory kept pace with the pack and had enough reserve to pull ahead for a 3rd place finish in the 100 Fly 58.11 - a personal best.  After helping the Oriowls fast four (Cory, Jeromy, Jordan, Santo) to a 3rd place finish in the 200 Free Relay, Jeromy kicked his way to a 4th place and best time in the 100 Back (1:01.64). An event later, he helped Santo, Jordan, and Cory wrap up the meet with a 3rd place finish in the 400 Free Relay, close on the tails of Verona and Stevens Point.  Outside of the medal range, we earned points from Jeromy and Cory with 7th and 10th in 200 IM, the 200 Free B Relay (Bobby, Tate, Robbie, Quinn), Logan in 100 Back, Quinn in 100 Breast, and the 400 Free B Relay (Logan, Bobby, Tate, Alex).

Orioles Soar Past Owls
Slinger was in rare territory against Hartford Union.  Since the rivals joined the same conference before the 2006-07 season, neither team scored as many points in a victory against the other as Hartford did Tuesday The Orioles, who were swept by Slinger last season, came away with a 68-60 road win during a North Shore Conference game. It was the second game of a boys-girls doubleheader.  "We gave up 68 points," Slinger coach Al Schieve said. "We haven't given up more than 52 all year. So we weren't good defensively from the start."  The most points scored in the rivalry before Tuesday was by Slinger, a 67-55 victory during the 2010-11 season.  On Tuesday, Hartford struck first with a Drew Egan 3-pointer a minute and a half into the game. The Orioles kept the lead for most of the first half.  Hartford pushed the advantage to 8-4 on a Jaden Melvin 3-pointer. Caleb Much scored his only points of the game with a 3 and gave the Orioles a 14-8 edge.    Click    here  to read full article.

HUHS-Slinger - West Bend meet results
At the end of an intense meet, Hartford-Slinger lost to West Bend 80-90. Our boys swam their hearts out, winning 7 of 11 events, but we couldn't quite match West Bend's depth.

We started the night with 1st & 3rd in the 200 Medley Relay (Jeromy, Santiago, Cory, Jordan and Evan, Quinn, Logan, Zach) and 1st in 200 Free (Santiago Cloud). Although West Bend's Bryan Fitzgerald took first in 200 IM with a new pool record, Jeromy and Logan brought in 2nd & 3rd. Jordan touched out Jackson Raad by .02 for the win in 50 Free and Cory followed that with 1st in 100 Fly and Logan's 3rd. Jeromy and Jordan swept 1st and 2nd in 100 Free, with another close touch out (.04) of Raad. Then Santiago kept close pace with Fitzgerald in 500 Free, coming in 2nd place. Cory swam his season best 100 Back, taking 2nd place, and Quinn battled it out in 100 Breast to take 1st. We wrapped up the night with a win in 400 Free Relay, but came just a few places short of winning the meet.

The Oriowls should walk tall after what they did tonight. They gave it everything they had and earned West Bend's respect.
