Wauwatosa West has chosen not to renew the contract of boys basketball coach Mike Landisch, despite the Trojans' improving record over his four seasons.
Four-time state tennis champion Andrew Paley, a member of the Nicolet High School Hall of Fame, joins University School as the girls tennis coach.
Nicolet High School does a marvelous job of summarizing all its sports news in a weekly article. Here's the latest entry.
From JSOnline comes a profile in Menomonee Falls shortstop Hailey Mohrfeld, the reigning Player of the Year in the Greater Metro Conference.
Brookfield Central remains atop the state girls soccer rankings; Menomonee Falls is invading the space normally reserved for traditional heavyweights and is at No. 4 with a 6-0-0 mark. Four of the 10 teams in the Division 1 poll are in the North Shore Conference and three more are from the Greater Metro Conference. And don't forget about Brookfield Academy, which moved into fourth in the Division 3 poll at 7-1-1.
Brookfield East's Katie Tolan is fifth on the state honor roll for the 400 meters at 59.68, though not a lot of outdoor times have been posted. Hamilton's girls posted the second-best 400 relay time so far at last week's Mukonwago Invite.
Among boys, James Stecker of Whitefish Bay ran 10.93 in the 100 meters at the Spartan Invitational last week and is third on the state honor roll. Teammates Davonte Johnson and Brandon Threats have the two fastest outdoor 200 times in the state so far, as reported to WisSports.net.
