GREENFIELD GIRLS SOCCER
A 4-0 triumph over Cudahy/St. Francis on June 7 gave the Hustlin' Hawks a WIAA Division 1 regional championship and a spot in the sectional tournament this week.
Greenfield, which improved to 7-11 on the season, will next take on top seed Muskego (15-7-3) at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 12, at the Warriors' home field in a sectional semifinal game.
Muskego, which finished 3-4 in the rugged Classic 8 Conference, advanced with a pair of 10-0 romps over two Milwaukee City Conference foes last week.
The winner on June 12 will play either Racine Horlick or Kenosha Tremper at 1 p.m. Saturday, June 14, at Kenosha Indian Trail for the sectional championship and a trip to next week's state tournament at Uihlein Park in Milwaukee.
The Hawks beat Cudahy/St. Francis for the second time this season on June 7 to advance to the sectional.
They opened the regional by blanking Milwaukee Hamilton 10-0 on June 5. Names of the goal scorers were unavailable for both games.
WEST ALLIS BOYS TENNIS
Enrico Arduini, an Italian foreign exchange student, went 1-1 at last weekend's WIAA Division 1 State Individual Tournament in Madison.
Arduini, who finished 14-4 on the season, won his opener on June 5 with a 6-4, 6-0 decision over David Sinense of Marquette. Sinense finished at 7-4.
He then lost 6-0, 3-6, 6-0, to Alex Rokosz, also of Marquette, on June 6. Rokosz lost in his next round and wound up 14-13.
Arduini was a bright spot in the season for West Allis, which struggled once again in the powerful Greater Metro Conference.
CENTRAL GIRLS SOCCER
The Bulldogs fell to top seed Kettle Moraine 10-0 in a WIAA Division 1 regional contest on June 5, but before that, they posted two impressive victories last week.
They blanked Beloit Memorial 3-0 in a non-conference game on June 3 behind two goals from Erminia Garcia and one by Rachel Sura.
"The girls played probably the best game I have seen during my tenure as head coach," coach Shondell Hernandez said. "They played their first mistake-free game. Garcia scored two goals off counter-attacks and Sura scored one of the best free kicks I have ever seen, shooting from 25 yards out on the left side of the field and putting it into the upper right corner."
Sophomore goalkeeper Karina Chavez posted 12 saves on the evening, including what Hernandez called a game-changing double save early in the first half.
Central also downed Milwaukee Riverside 7-1 on June 2 as Garcia collected five goals, Sura one and Maddy Unger the final tally.
"The girls played well," the coach said. "They moved the ball well and maintained focus throughout the game. Riverside put in a nice floater to put the game at 2-1, but in the end, the Central girls were very hungry for a win."
On June 5, the Bulldogs fell victim to a talented Kettle Moraine squad.
"When the first three goals were perfectly placed in the upper corner," Hernandez said, "I knew it was going to be a long night. My girls fought hard and never gave up."
Central finished the 2014 season at 5-14-1, including a 2-1 decision over WIAA Division 1 sectional qualifier Greenfield early in the campaign.
HALE BOYS GOLF
Derrick Oleson fired a 93 and Andrew Riedel a 108 in a WIAA Division 1 sectional meet at Edgewood Golf Course on June 3.
Oleson wound up in 37th place and Riedel 48th in the sectional. Both are juniors.
"Both felt they should have played better and are excited about next year already," head coach Dan Mroczenski said. "This is the second year in a row that Derrick made it to sectionals."
The Huskies had no seniors this season, so everyone will be back in 2015.
"Our goal will be to make it to sectionals as a team," Mroczenski said. "One sophomore and two freshmen also played a number of varsity matches, so there will be some good competition for who will be playing next year."
GREENFIELD BOYS GOLF
Junior Ben Wachniak carded an 86 in a WIAA Division 1 sectional meet at Brightondale Links on June 4.
That did not advance him to this week's state meet at University Ridge.
Wachniak recorded the low average for the Hustlin' Hawks this season with 43.5 strokes per round.
The Hawks will lose seniors Kyle Holmes and Mark Lyman but will return most of their 2014 squad.
WHITNALL GIRLS SOCCER
The season ended for the Falcons with a 4-0 loss to Pius XI in a WIAA Division 2 regional game on June 5.
"We fell behind 3-0 in the first half and then played better, but it was too late," head coach Robert Antholine said. "It was the same problem of not being able to score."
Backup goalkeeper Zora Marinkovich played well, making six saves to keep her team in the game.
Whitnall finished 8-8-2 overall and 4-5-2 in the Woodland Conference.
"None of that is too bad, considering the injuries we had this year," said Antholine, whose team lost top goaltender Ann Marie Bay and a number of other key players to injuries and struggled to maintain consistency as a result.
HALE GIRLS SOCCER
Goaltender Sam Held made eight saves but that was not enough to keep the Huskies from a 10-0 loss to powerful Mukwonago in a WIAA Division 1 regional contest on June 5.
Hale was outscored 7-0 in the first half by the Indians, who compete in the rugged Classic 8 Conference.
The Huskies ended a disappointing season at 3-15-1.
