Herb named state's top golfer

Emmet Herb has joked he’s 130 pounds — “dripping wet.”

But one of the smallest golfers in the state was also the best in 2016.

On Tuesday, the Golf Coaches Association of Wisconsin named Herb the boys state Player of the Year. Herb, who won the WIAA Division 1 individual state title earlier this month, was also named first-team all-state.

In addition, Middleton senior Joey Levin was named second-team all-state, while senior Brady Thomas was named honorable-mention all-state.

“That was pretty neat to hear,” Middleton coach Tom Cabalka said. “I was hoping he would be first team and I was fairly confident in that. But this was a great surprise. He was our little big man.”

Herb shot a remarkable 6-under-par at the state tournament and won that event by seven strokes. Herb’s 138 total was the third lowest in any division since the state tournament moved to University Ridge Golf Course in 1994.

Baseball Cards fall at state

GRAND CHUTE — It took Middleton’s baseball team exactly six minutes to discover that Tuesday just might not their day.

On only the eighth pitch of the game from Cardinals starter Alec Morrison, Green Bay Preble third baseman Ryan Dougherty sent a shot back up the middle. The ball struck Morrison in the right forehead, sent him to the ground and immediately ended his day.

While Morrison was eventually OK, the Cardinals weren’t.

Middleton managed just four hits, couldn’t overcome the loss of their ace and dropped a WIAA Division 1 quarterfinal game to Green Bay Preble, 4-2, at Fox Cities Stadium.

Middleton finished the year 22-6, while Preble improved to 24-5.

“That was a tough one to handle,” Schmitt said of Morrison’s injury. “Morry is kind of our heart and soul in the middle of the lineup and our No. 1 (pitcher).

Herb storms to state golf title

Madison — One of many things that makes Emmet Herb one of the state’s elite golfers is his temperament.

It doesn’t seem to matter if Herb goes low — or high — his facial expressions, body language and mood rarely change.

But Tuesday evening, the typically calm and collected Herb turned to mush. Then again, he is human.

Herb walked off the 18th green at University Ridge Golf Course as the WIAA Division 1 state champion. He was soon doused with water by his teammates. And when Herb saw his fellow seniors, the finality of it all set in and the tears began to flow.

“I just kind of realized that this was the end,” Herb said. “There’s a lot of memories with these guys.”

None better that the ones Herb made Monday and Tuesday.

Herb shot 6-under-par, 138, in the two-day tournament. Not only did Herb win the state title by seven shots, he posted the third-lowest score in state history.

MHS golfers headed back to state

Five days before the biggest golfing day of the year, Brady Thomas sat outside Pleasant View and said something that eventually looked prophetic.

“Survive and advance,” Thomas said. “That’s all we want to do. Survive and advance.”

It wasn’t easy, but that’s exactly what Middleton’s boys golf team did at the WIAA Division 1 Onalaska Sectional last Wednesday.

The Cardinals sat in fifth place halfway through the round, a nightmarish landing spot considering only the top two teams reach the state tournament.

But Middleton, ranked No. 2 in the state, picked it up on the back nine, jumped up to second place and earned a trip back to state.

Madison Memorial shot a 312 and won the eight-team sectional. Middleton was second at 314, while Oregon (323), Reedsburg (326) and Waunakee (329) rounded out the top five.
