The Warhawks are peaking at just the right time, as they turned in a season best 18-hole score of 308 in taking third in the North Shore Conference 18-hole finale on May 22 at Washington County.

In doing so, senior Phillip Johnson earned first-team All-NSC honors.

It was an effort reminiscent of last year's school record 302 that won the 18-hole NSC finale for Germantown.

"We just happen to play well at this time of year," said coach Gary Anderson. "We had the attitude that though we were not in the hunt for the overall conference title, we might as well just go win the meet."

Defending state and conference champion Cedarburg won the meet with a 300 score, while Homestead, which has been ranked first in many state polls this season, was second with a 305.

The Warhawks took part in WIAA regional play that was held May 27 at Ozaukee Country Club. Both Cedarburg and Homestead will be at the meet. It is a very difficult regional with other area powers Hamilton and Arrowhead also taking part.

Qualifiers from there will advance to the sectional tournament at Fire Ridge on Wednesday, June 4.

Johnson carded a 75 to lead Germantown in the conference meet, while getting help from Chris Thompson (76), Nick Drahus (76), and Kevin Brown (81). Logan Sterns came in with an 89. Both Drahus and Thompson were honorable mention all-conference.

Anderson praised Johnson for his solid season and noted that he has been as consistent as anyone in the conference.

"This was a good move by us leading right into (WIAA) regional," he said. "The conditions were ideal."


The Indians kept their hopes of a repeat Greater Metro Conference title alive with a 1-0 victory over Brookfield Central on May 20.

The third-ranked in state Falls squad then followed that with a 3-0 nonconference win over Racine Horlick, on May 22.

The Indians entered a busy last week of the regular season at 16-2 overall and 5-1 in the GMC. If Falls beats Hamilton on Tuesday, May 27, and Brookfield East upsets DSHA, Falls and DSHA will tie for the GMC crown.

Falls will host Franklin on Thursday, May 29, and New Berlin Eisenhower, on Saturday, May 31, in its final regular season games.

Rachel Clayton scored a goal in the 38th minute with help from Kylie Sprecher to win the Central game. Jen Eberhardy had two goals and Alex Graeber the third in the victory over Horlick.


Samantha Madrzak won the pole vault to lead the Indians to a sixth-place finish in the Greater Metro Conference outdoor meet on May 20.

Falls will now send qualifiers to the WIAA sectional meet at Sussex Hamilton at 3:30 p.m. Friday, May 30. The top three finishers in each event plus all those efforts that are in the top eight of all sectionals statewide, will advance to the state meet in La Crosse, June 6 and 7. Madrzak is a 2013 state qualifier.

The Indians scored 52-1/2 points for their spot in the GMC outdoor as Brookfield East won with 180-1/2. Madrzak cleared 11 feet even for her victory, winning by a foot. Hannah Matthiesen in the discus (95-2) and Ashley Buddenhagen in the high jump (5-0) both earned seconds.

Other good efforts for the Indians included the following: 100-meter dash—Anaya Hunter, sixth (13.34 seconds). 100 high hurdles—Savvanah Callen, sixth (16.59). Pole vault—Caroline Hanson, fifth (8-6).


The Warhawks, who had clinched their fourth straight North Shore Conference title on May 19 with a doubleheader sweep of Port Washington, saw their 51-game league win streak come to an end with a 4-1 defeat at archrival Homestead, on May 21.

"Only three hits, you're not going to do much with that," said co-coach Amy Barbiaux.

The Warhawks (12-1 in North Shore play and 14-8 overall) earned the second seed in their own WIAA sectional bracket and will play the winner of Nicolet and Cedarburg in a regional final at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 29. If they win, they will advance to host a sectional semifinal on Tuesday, June 3, with a good possibility that they could be playing Homestead again.

The sectional final is at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 5, at Germantown. Brookfield Central is the sectional top seed and Germantown has qualified for state the last two seasons.

Homestead scored twice in the first inning and never trailed as pitcher Allie Beckers allowed only three Warhawks hits.


The Indians finished a 14-0 Greater Metro Conference run and a 22-4 regular season record by beating nonconference opponent Arrowhead, 7-6, on May 21 and beating GMC foe Wauwatosa East, 11-0, on May 22.

Falls, which made WIAA state semifinals last season, earned the top seed in the Oconomowoc sectional. It will have a first-round bye and host the winner of Wauwatosa East and West Allis Hale in a regional final on Thursday, May 29, at Falls High School.

If they win, they will host a WIAA sectional semifinal on Tuesday, June 3, with the sectional final at Oconomowoc on Thursday, June 5.

A seven-run first did the trick against Tosa East as Peyton Brokiewicz had two hits and two RBIs while Claire Mohrfeld had two hits and two runs scored. Kelly Berglund had eight strikeouts against just one walk.

Falls almost fainted against Arrowhead, taking a 6-0 lead against the Warhawks into the bottom of the sixth before watching the Warhawks score six runs to tie the score. The Indians rallied to win the game in the top of the eighth.

Brokiewicz had three hits with two RBIs while Justine Ertl had two runs scored and three RBIs and Stephanie Cole two hits. Angelica Labermeier pitched well.


It wasn't the best day for the Warhawks as they settled for fifth in the North Shore Conference Outdoor on May 20.

"It was a rough day, the kids thought they'd do much better," said coach Greg Siegert.

Germantown will now send qualifiers to the WIAA sectional meet at Sussex Hamilton on Friday, May 30, in hopes of advancing athletes to the state meet in La Crosse, June 6 and 7.

Best finishes for the Warhawks included seconds from Michael Cooney in the shot put (46 feet-9 1/2 inches), Cole Karcz in the discus (145-10), and Nick Holcomb in the long jump (21-3) and triple jump (43-6 1/4).

Other good finishes included the following: 800—Preston Yahr, fifth (2:01.86); Nick Foti, sixth (2:03.1). 1,600—Trevor Becker, fourth (4:30.32). 300 intermediate hurdles—Jacob DeBonis, fourth (41.26). 4x200 relay—Clay Knapp, Quintin Fliss, Connor Schulz and Austin Mozdzen, third (1;32.37). 4x800 relay—Brett Dzik, Nick Montag, Cory Rhind and Lucas Sbragia, third (8:28.33). Shot put—Karcz, fifth (43-0). Discus—Alex Schlee, sixth (134-9). Pole vault—Dante Beal, fifth (12-0). Triple jump—Pratcher, fourth (42-6 1/2).


Fourth singles player Matt Dreier took third place in the Greater Metro Conference championships last week as the Indians took sixth place in the final league standings.

Dreier defeated a Tosa East opponent 6-0, 7-6, in his quarterfinal match before falling to eventual class champion Robert Krill of league champion Brookfield East by a 6-0, 6-0 count. But then Dreier bounced back to beat a Brookfield Central opponent, 6-4, 0-6, 6-1, in the third-place match.

Dreier was the only Indians competitor to win a match in the tough league competition.

Falls took part in WIAA sub-sectional competition at Brookfield East on Tuesday, May 27.


Davis Narey narrowly missed out on earning third-team All-Greater Metro Conference honors as the Indians took fifth in the final league standings and in the 18-hole league finale at Morning Star on May 22.

Falls turned in an 18-hole score of 353 at Morning Star as Brookfield Central won the 18-hole finale with a 305 and nipped Marquette (311 at Morning Star) by a half-point in the final league standings.

Alex Peterson led the Indians with an 82, while Narey, who missed out on all-conference honors by one place, came in with an 86 and Austin Fuiten carded an 89.

The Indians took part in WIAA regional play on Tuesday, May 27, at Wanaki. The first four teams and top four individuals not on those teams advanced to the sectional tournament on Tuesday, June 3, at Edgewood Golf Course in Big Bend.
