Shorewood schools are widely known for their strong focus on the arts, and with that has emerged the perception that it isn't a "sports district." But, is that a false perception, given recent success by several teams?
The Shorewood School District is widely known for its strong focus on the arts, with celebrated theater, band, orchestra and choral programs, churning out right-brained graduates. With that, some argue the district's sports programs have suffered over the years as a result. A perception has emerged that Shorewood isn’t a "sports district," and doesn’t put an emphasis on athletics, high school track coach and Lake Bluff physical education teacher Dominic Newman said. “I feel that Shorewood is not recognized as a sports district,” Newman said. "That's a perception that every coach is trying to change." But athletics in the district seem to be on the verge of a revival. Shorewood High School was ranked third in the Wisconsin Sports Network …

The Pewaukee Pirates out shot Shorewood in a penalty shootout round, following two scoreless overtime periods.
The Greyhounds' state tournament dreams were dashed by Pewaukee Saturday, after the two played to a draw and entered a penalty shootout round. The two met in the WIAA Division 2 boys soccer sectional finals in Whitewater. After two scoreless halves, the teams played two overtime periods in which neither was able to sneak a goal in. In a penalty shootout round, Pewaukee out shot the Greyhounds 4-2, to move on to the state tournament. "If we could have had five more minutes on the field, instead of a shootout, I think it would have been a different outcome," head coach Aron Gentry said. However, Gentry said the 15-2-3 Greyhounds had one the best season's Shorewood has experienced in quite a while. Last season the team went 8-8-3. "It was a …
