    football team stunned by inspired Oak Creek, 26-0

    While on the phone with a skeptical radio reporter after his team's surprisingly impressive 26-0 win over visiting Menomonee Falls in the season opener Aug. 21, Oak Creek football coach Mike Bartholomew could only laugh and say: And that much his young Knights proved, as despite the loss of 30-plus seniors from a Southeast Conference co-championship squad of a year ago and despite four turnovers against Falls, they had the lead from the opening drive and never gave Falls a real opportunity to get into the game. "I think I said that I really liked the vibe on this team," Bartholomew later extrapolated.

    Oak Creek tennis team wins South Milwaukee Invite

    Last year, with a rain-date scheduling conflict forcing them to withdraw after completing only part of the tournament, the Oak Creek girls tennis team didn't know whether it could win the 16-school South Milwaukee/Oak Creek Dual Meet Invite. This year, the Knights were able to stick around for the entirety of the event and prove their mettle, winning four matches and claiming the championship in the two-day meet held Aug. 19 and 20. "We had to go to Madison last year; we had another commitment," said veteran coach Don Tellefsen.

    While on the phone with a somewhat skeptical radio reporter after his team's surprisingly impressive 26-0 win over visiting Menomonee Falls in the season opener on Aug. 21, Oak Creek football coach Mike Bartholomew could only laugh and say, "I said we'd be inexperienced, I didn't say we weren't any good."

    Friends and neighbors, rivals and competitors, the players who took part in the powerhouse rivalry between the Franklin and and Greendale football teams the last three years will be rehashing and embellishing the highs and lows of these contests for decades to come at picnics, taverns and family reunions. Only the 28 seniors on this year's Franklin group will have an emphatic last word at all those gatherings, as the Sabers ended a two-game skid against the Panthers Thursday night with an impressive 37-0 rout of their hosts.

    volleyball team opens season with win over Nicolet

    After winning the school's first state girls volleyball title in 2013, Menomonee Falls slid under the radar last season following big graduation losses. Now working with what he calls "his deepest squad ever", Indian coach J.C. Bruns said he likes the idea of his Indians laying low and out of sight for the time being in 2015 too as they prepare to make a run back towards elite status.
