Boys Tennis Team Wins

First Team State Championship in Program History

On June 11, the Brookfield Academy boys tennis team found itself in its third consecutive state championship. The two previous trips did not end in a title, but the third time was a charm. Brookfield Academy avenged its 2021 loss to Catholic Memorial by defeating the Crusaders four matches to three in the 2022 WIAA Team State Championship. Congratulations to now BA alumnus Pranav Gogineni '22 (pictured holding the trophy) on being the lone senior in the Blue Knights lineup.

We were deeply saddened by the passing of Daniel Perelman '21. Daniel attended the Academy from first grade through his graduation with the Class of 2021. Dr. Davis, Head of the Upper School, spoke for all who knew Daniel when he said, “Daniel was an insatiable student. He loved academic challenges and routinely took our most difficult courses and excelled. He was also well-liked, a true gentleman, courteous, and caring in his interactions with others.”


Daniel’s family and the Chabad Jewish Center of Waukesha County have set up a memorial drive called "Deeds for Daniel". They are asking the community to pledge to do as many good deeds as possible in his honor. To add a good deed, click here.

Keep Daniel and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
