The Hustlin' Hawks posted a couple of big victories last week, including a 6-2 Woodland Conference decision over New Berlin Eisenhower on Friday.

Greenfield tallied four runs in the sixth inning to break a 2-2 tie with the Lions, the Woodland West Division leader.

Randi Fennig doubled and drove in two runs for the Hawks, while Kristin Kaifesh went 2-for-2 with a triple. Bella Matthias notched the complete-game victory, striking out six.

Greenfield also played a thrilling two-day series with rival Whitnall, winning the second, 8-7, May 14 after losing the first, 6-5, May 13.

In the victory, Matthias went 3-for-4 with three runs batted in, Kayla Culbertson 2-for-4 with an RBI and Fennig 2-for-3.

In the defeat, Culbertson drove in two runs and Nicollette Curtis, Fennig and Kaylan Biersack each had two hits.

Greenfield finished 9-3 in the Woodland East Division, trailing South Milwaukee, 10-2, and Whitnall, 8-2, which has a makeup doubleheader with Cudahy left to play.

The Hawks dropped a 9-4 decision to Oak Creek on May 16, their second loss to the Knights this season. Culbertson belted a home run and had two hits.

Greenfield opened WIAA Division 1 regional play Tuesday against Milwaukee Ronald Reagan. A victory would place the Hawks in a regional title game today, likely at 4:30 p.m. at Muskego.

The winner advances to sectional play Tuesday.


The Falcons came in third in the combined Woodland Conference mega-mini meet, which concluded with 18 holes at the Washington County Golf Course on May 15.

Whitnall shot 342 over those 18 holes for a total of 507, which placed behind only Greendale (463) and Pewaukee (495) in the 12-team tournament.

Clayton Anderson fired a 79 May 15 to finish sixth individually at 118, and teammate Mitch Molbeck carded an 80 to take seventh with 119.

John Caron recorded 84, Phil Schram 99 and Brett Abramczyk 101 to round out Whitnall's scoring.


Even though the Falcons saw their WIAA Division 2 tournament hopes end with a 6-4 regional loss to New Berlin West on May 16, the season is not yet over.

They still have a shot at sharing the Woodland Conference East Division crown with South Milwaukee if they sweep a makeup doubleheader at Cudahy at 4 p.m. Friday.

Whitnall came into this week at 8-2 in the division, trailing the Rockets, 10-2.

Against New Berlin West in the regional, Renee Caron belted a home run and drove in two runs, while Katie Rosenwald and Amanda Rosenwald both brought in one run.

Carly Wagner, Sydney Opdahl and Liz Thon each had two hits.

The Falcons split a pair with Greenfield last week, winning 6-5 May 13 and losing 8-7 May 14.

In the victory, Kim Robinson, Katie Rosenwald and Thon all drove in runs and Liz Menden had two hits.

In the defeat, Thon and Menden each collected three hits, with Thon driving in a run.


Justin Cancilla paced the Hustlin' Hawks with an 89 in the 18-hole finale of the Woodland Conference mega-mini tournament May 15 at the Washington County Golf Course.

Cancilla finished 21st individually in the conference with a total of 128.

Trevor Holmes posted his best round of the season with a 93, while Alec Piekarski shot 95 and Jaron Litza 98.

The Hawks totaled 375 shots over the 18 holes for a total of 558, which put them 11th.


Katie Schauer and Ashley Markowiak tallied in the second half to lead the Falcons past Waterford 2-1 Friday night.

"That was a much-needed win," head coach Robert Antholine said. "It has been a while since we played with this kind of intensity and energy. We may be slowly coming back from a month of injuries."

The Falcons lost to New Berlin West, 5-0, May 14 and to Pius XI, 4-0, May 16 to slip to 4-6 in the Woodland Conference and 5-12 overall.


Although the Huskies topped their season average with a 346 in the 18-hole Greater Metro Conference Tournament at Morningstar Golf Course on May 15, it did not help them move up in the standings.

They still wound up seventh in the meet and in the powerful GMC.

"We are in a conference with three of the top seven teams in the state," head coach Dan Mroczenski said.

John Zilles shot an 81 to miss third-team all-conference by two strokes. Danny Lemanske fired an 84, Arthur Arena 90, Derrick Oleson 91 and Taylor Manz 93.
