The fourth-ranked Warhawks are trying to punch through the glass ceiling that is top-ranked Marquette, but they're having a hard time breaking through it with more than a few tough losses to the Hilltoppers this season.

They suffered another one on Oct. 8, when they fell, 26-24, 28-26, in the semifinals of the Whitefish Bay Invite.

"Another tournament, another Marquette battle," said coach Brian Rushmer. "We feel like we had an opportunity in both sets. A handful of chances that we need to do a little bit better of a job of executing what we want. Given that the boys had the distraction of homecoming that night, I still think it was a good showing for us. One more tournament left with one more possible chance to play Marquette prior to a postseason (WIAA) battle."

The Warhawks had a critical North Shore Conference dual with rival Nicolet on Oct. 10. It would go a long ways toward Germantown defending its league title.

In the Bay tourney, Germantown finished second in its pool, beating Westosha Central and Racine Park but falling to Tosa East. In the championship playoffs, they defeated Kenosha Tremper (25-20, 25-21) before falling to Marquette. Marquette beat Middleton in three sets to win the event.


The Indians continued their recent series of strong finishes when they earned third of 16 in the Wisconsin Lutheran Invitational at McCarty Park in West Allis on Oct. 7.

Falls will look to compete well in the Greater Metro Conference meet at Washington Park in Milwaukee on Saturday, Oct. 15.

In the Lutheran meet, the Indians used a strong effort from their first four to score 115 points for their spot. Kettle Moraine won with 45, and Lutheran was second with second.

The 2015 WIAA state meet qualifier sophomore Kylee Wunschel led the way in second on the 5,000-meter course in 19:15, trailing only Lutheran senior Audrey Janik (18:25). She got help from Emma Weber in fifth (19:48), Eileen Tocco in seventh (20:01), Amber Kivisto in 14th (20:34) and Allison Schultz in 87th (22:35), Also running was Brynn Wozniak in 93rd (23:04).


Sophomore Kirsten Leonardi competed at the Hartford Sectional on Oct. 4 and tied for 34th with a 99.

"She was very disappointed," HHS coach Randy Howard said. "Her chipping and putting let her down. She was attempting to become the first Hamilton girl to qualify for the state tournament since our program began 15 years ago."


The fourth-ranked Indians continued their high-level of play by cruising to a 25-13, 25-19, 25-17 Greater Metro Conference dual-meet victory over Brookfield Central on Oct. 4.

The Indians, who finished out their GMC season on Oct. 11 against West Allis Central, will likely enter the Greater Metro Conference tournament on Saturday, Oct. 15, at Brookfield East with a 5-2 record. East will likely be the favorite, but Falls can secure some great momentum heading into the following week's WIAA tournament series.

Falls will likely host a GMC quarterfinal match Thursday, Oct. 13.

In the win over Central, Falls got 10 kills from Mackenzie Robertson, 24 assists from McKenna Micech, three blocks from Rachel Murphy and five digs from Cami Stigler.


It was a good week for the Warhawks, as they downed Port Washington, 1-0, in a North Shore Conference match on Oct. 4 and then turned around and beat a good Franklin side, 3-0, in a nonconference tilt.

Nuelk finished with an 18-11 record, and Murtos was 19-7.


The Warhawks stayed competitive in the powerhouse Westosha Central Invite on Oct. 8, playing state-ranked teams all day.

They went 1-3 on the day, including a tough loss to likely new D1 state top-ranked team Appleton North.

"Then we beat Burlington in two, lost to CMH (Catholic Memorial) in three and then finished by losing to Tremper in three," said coach Ted Gollakner.  "I believe that we are on a nice roll heading into the playoffs.

"This is all due to the play of senior Kailynn Mongan. At 5-3, she has switched from a second-team all conference libero to be our setter. She had amazing stats from this weekend against four very good teams."

North was ranked second heading into Westosha and Burlington 15th, while Memorial was ranked third in D2.

Mongan had nine aces, 10 kills, 75 assists and 21 digs. Other top performers included Krista Meyer with 15 kills and 14 blocks and Amber Bischel with 49 digs.
