SportsEdge: The Week in Prep Sports
Brookfield Central Skins Game is played in shirts ... and hats and gloves and parkas and ...
SportsEdge sent intrepid videographer AJ Randall to the sloppy, cold and wet Wanaki Golf Course last week as the 22-team Brookfield Central Skins Game went off as planned. It's our Game of the Week. For the Lightning Round from a week thinned out by weather and spring break, check out Nicolet soccer, Tosa West soccer and softball and North Shore Conference golf at The Bog.
The state girls soccer poll is lopsided, and the field tips heavily toward the North Shore Conference. Five of the conference's eight teams — half the top 10 — is from the NSC. Homestead, which just beat No. 1 Brookfield Central last week, is No. 4 pending that result. Then comes Cedarburg (No. 6), Whitefish Bay (7), Grafton (9) and Nicolet, which just slipped into the poll and thumped Brown Deer 7-0 on Wednesday. That game is part of the Lightning Round.
Conference play is slim this week, but Whitefish Bay goes to the Tournament of Champions in Burlington, IA this weekend with many of the top teams in the Midwest.
The Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association announced rosters for their All-Star Games on June 17. The Division 1 North team features three players from state champion Nicolet — Alex Cohen, Gabby Bronson and Ashley Greene — and Hamilton star Courtney Lemon. On the South team is Valerierose Agnello from Brookfield Central.
