Five notable performances by area high school athletes over the past week and five events to watch for over the next seven days:
- The Naramore brothers, Brodhead/Juda football—Dalton and Nick Naramore put the Cardinals on their backs and potentially carried them to a playoff berth Friday. Dalton rushed for 170 yards and a touchdown, and Nick rushed for 140 yards and three scores in Brodhead/Juda’s 40-19 win at Big Foot.
- Holly Murphy, Badger/Williams Bay girls golf—The Lake Geneva Badger senior ran away with the title at the WIAA Division 1 Kettle Moraine Sectional. Murphy used a blistering 32 on the front nine at Legend at Bristlecone to shoot a 2-under 69. She was 11 strokes clear of the field and qualified individually to this week’s state tournament.
- Tyler Harrington, Clinton football—Harrington rushed 15 times for 115 yards and the game-winning touchdown in overtime for the Cougars. Harrington took a handoff on the first play of overtime and went 25 yards for a score, and Clinton’s defense recovered a fumble to end the game with a 12-6 victory.
- Parker volleyball seniors—Carlie Curtis, Tina Shelton, Rachel Van Beek, Shay Riley and Lexi Walters celebrated Senior Night on Thursday by sweeping Madison Memorial to all but wrap up a third-place finish in the Big Eight.
