Girls soccer team remain undefeated in Woodland Conference play, after playing to a tie against New Berlin Eisenhower.
Here is a roundup of Shorewood High School sports courtesy of Athletic Director Bill Haury: Girl’s Softball – Monday, the teams played only the second game of the season, the first conference game against a very strong Whitnall team. While the game ended in five innings with Whitnall winning 14-1, an important statistic was that the Shorewood girls had no errors. The Whitnall team generated its own offense off strong hitting. There were no big innings for the Falcons, as they had to produce each run with hitting and not off Shorewood mistakes. Meredith Behm gave the team its lone run as she went 1-2 with a double that scored the Shorewood run. Cindy Schuelke pitched two innings and Celeste Carroll pitched three.

With Shorewood High School Athletic Director Bill Haury, who many credit with turning around a struggling sports program in the district, set to retire at the end of the school year, boosters are concerned about attracting the right candidate.
Many who are active in Shorewood High School athletics — coaches, boosters — credit Athletic Director Bill Haury with turning around a struggling sports program in the district. After seven years at the helm, programs like the girls basketball team, which lost 45 games in a row over four seasons, have finally realized success under Haury. "I've coached boys basketball for 30 years, in the city conference, and I've seen a lot of ADs," boys basketball head coach Phil Jones said. "And I'd have to say Bill is the best that I've seen." But Haury is set to retire at the end of the school year, leaving coaches and boosters with concerns over who will take over as director of athletics and vigilant about attracting and hiring an experienced, …

After 25 years in Shorewood schools, Bill Haury is retiring. The School Board will consider his retirement request Tuesday night.
When school lets out for summer break, Bill Haury will say goodbye for good after 25 years in the Shorewood School District.

The board will consider his retirement request during a regular meeting slated for Tuesday night. Haury's time of service …

A 49-6 loss to Milwaukee Riverside Friday night didn't diminish the significance of Messmer/Shorewood's first playoff appearance since 1981.
The Messmer/Shorewood football team fell 49-6 to Milwaukee Riverside Friday night at Pulaski Stadium in WIAA regional round playoff action. Riverside jumped out to an early lead with two first quarter touchdowns and didn't let up, scoring 35 first half points. Messwood was able to avoid the shutout with Taylor Dennis connecting with Jonathan Carson for a 15-yard touchdown pass with less than a minute left in the game. However, the result of Friday night’s game didn’t diminish what Messwood’s playoff berth meant to the fans, coaches and players. Shorewood had to make a court challenge to a WIAA rule that labeled them ineligible for the playoffs.
