Anna Reisinger concluded her season with an appearance in the WIAA Division 1 state tournament on Oct. 10 and 11 at University Ridge in Verona.

With the overall round nearly complete, the senior stood in a tie for 64th place with scores of 104 and 94 for a two-day total of 198 strokes.

She advanced to state by finishing in a tie for fifth with an 82 at a sectional meet on Oct. 4 at the Hartford Golf Club. She was first among the individual qualifiers at the sectional.

That followed a stretch of 85, 81 and 83 in her previous three rounds.

"What an amazing stretch of golf," coach Curtis Bentley said.

Reisinger's effort helped the Bulldogs finish fourth in the sectional with 364 shots, trailing state qualifiers Arrowhead (309) and Kettle Moraine (347), as well as Oshkosh West (349). Arrowhead went on to claim the state team championship.

Lauren Janza shot 90 to tie for 17th place, Annika Jahr 93 to tie for 23rd, Maddy Wilke 99 to tie for 34th and Olivia Janza 107 for 41st place.


Abeba Sullivan won the individual race in 19 minutes, 25 seconds at the Port Washington Invitational on Oct. 6 at Tendick Park.

"The boys did a great job of pack running," coach Mark Pasten said. "The six boys who ran on varsity stayed together in a pack for the first mile and one-quarter of the 3.1-mile race. At that point, the top runners were given the task of catching as many of the runners in front as possible. They did a great job of executing the race plan and were able to reel in most of the field."
