The meet was canceled when a scrawled bomb threat cleared Homestead High School on the afternoon of April 6.

The threat later proved to be a hoax, which ruined a lot of work by coaches, volunteers, athletes and others as no other date was available to make up the meet. Please see column at


The Bulldogs opened their season with victories of 10-0 over Beaver Dam on April 6 and 6-4 over Kenosha Tremper on April 1.

Against Beaver Dam, sophomore forward Selena Esten tallied three goals and junior midfielder Mari Rigert and senior defender Izzy Gemignani each had two goals.

In the Tremper game, Esten put in four goals.

Other key players include junior goalkeeper Elaina LaMacchia, senior midfielder Angela LaMacchia, senior defender Makenna Race, senior forward Alyssa Krieg and junior forward Kassidy Lange.

"We have 15 returning players," coach Robert Williams said. "If we can buy into the system and become a team, we should have success. There are some things we need to work on, but with the way the girls have responded so far, I don't have any worries that those things won't get rectified."


The Black Hawks improved to 2-0 on the young season with a 5-0 triumph over Nicolet on April 4.

Goals were scored by Laura Stockhausen, Malaya Sperber, Gretchen Geiser, Hailey Block and Kate Sewart, with assists from Sperber and Alyssa Jobe.

Goalkeeper Corbin Woessner made two saves.


The short-handed Highlanders turned in a solid 18-hole score of 350 in earning 15th out of 26 in the Washgington County Invitational on April 8.

They will be led by returning senior state placewinner Rob Morway. Other veterans include seniors Max Pasher (individual WIAA regional champ in 2016), Dawson Dahlberg, Joe Lappin, Tommy Lamers, and Marcel McWilliams. Another who will help out is sophomore Ben Elchert.

"We have good numbers and a strong senior class," said veteran coach Steve O'Brien. "We'll need that because conference looks really good this year. I think any one of four teams could win it."

Last season, the Highlanders finished second in the North Shore to Cedarburg and also narrowly lost out on a state team tournament berth by one shot at the WIAA sectional meet

Elchert led the way at Washington County with an 18-hole score of 79 as Dahlberg came in with an 85 and Charlie Langhoff and Michael Kennedy each carded 93s. Marquette won with a score of 300.
