West Allis swimming
Kayla Martin broke two team records in three days for the West Allis Wave.
In a 119-66 Greater Metro Conference loss to visiting Brookfield East, she set a new mark while winning the 100-yard breaststroke in 1 minute, 16.02. Martin also won the 200 freestyle in 2:10.06, her team's only other swimming victory at the dual.
Martin then broke the 200 free mark at Central's own eight-team South Side Sprints on Saturday, taking third in 2:08.56.
Martin won the 50 breaststroke (34.96) and teamed with Anastasiya Dyedkova, Stephanie Nimmer and Rachel Schumitsch for second in the 200 free relay (1:50.88) as West Allis took third of eight teams.
Diver Kristin Provencher, who was second on Saturday, set a team mark with 198.15 points against Brookfield East.
The Falcons were edged in a battle for second place by New Berlin Eisenhower at the Woodland Conference Tournament Sept. 29 and 30.
Whitnall made it to the finals twice and lost two third-place matches en route to 28 points. Greendale dominated with 56 and Eisenhower was runner-up with 32.
The Falcons' Lauryn Jashinski was seeded second at third singles and made it to the finals, where she lost to Greendale's Meghan McCormick, 6-2, 6-3. Whitnall's second doubles team of Kristin Kowalewski and Lindsay Kartye also lost in the finals.
Whitnall's Allison Barnhardt survived a difficult first-round, three-set match with St. Thomas More's Annie Voltner and eventually placed fourth at first singles, as did the Falcons' third doubles team of Allie Anderson and Samantha Zacher.
Katie Schahczinski reached the finals of the Woodland Conference Tournament but, like everyone else, was turned back by a Greendale foe.
Schahczinski, the Hustlin' Hawks' first singles player, won a pair of matches in straight sets after receiving a first-round bye as the tournament's second seed. But in the finals, she fell to Greendale's Lauren Piotrowski, 6-1, 6-2.
Greendale won all seven flights after going undefeated in the league dual season.
Also for Greenfield, fourth singles player Brittany Robakowski won her third-place match, 6-0, 6-4, over Shorewood's Elana Lambert, and the fourth doubles team of Kayla Derrick and Scotti Tuttle placed fifth.
