After the boys and girls cross country teams finished first and second at the Midwest Classic Conference Meet, respectively, both teams continued their success at Sectionals.

Both the boys and girls teams earned a second place team finish at Sectionals, punching their tickets to the Division 3 team State meet. This is the first time a BA cross country team has qualified for the team State meet since 2015. This year is just the second time in school history that both the boys and girls teams have qualified for team State.

Freshman Rose Erlinder led the way for the girls team at Sectionals, finishing fourth out of 86 runners. Senior Nathaniel Osborne won the boys race at Sectionals, beating 108 runners.

The State meet will take place Saturday, October 30, at Ridges Golf Course in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin. The BA boys will begin their run at 1:10 pm while the girls will start their race at 3:05 pm. Both the boys and girls teams will race against 15 other schools at the team State meet.

Brookfield Academy lost on Friday, October 22, in the WIAA playoffs to Mayville, 49-13. BA struggled with the strength, size, and depth of Mayville.  

BA finished the season with an overall record of 7-4. 

A special thanks to our seniors: Jonah Jensen, Laith Ali, Daniel Li, Henry Vaughn, and Ethan Bayerlein.

The five seniors received Team Academic All-State honors by maintaining an average cumulative GPA above 3.33. The BA football seniors averaged a 3.65 GPA.

-Coach Jon Kahle

The boys varsity soccer team finished its season with a record of 4-12-1. Although more wins were anticipated, the boys played a very demanding schedule.

While many starters over the course of the season had to miss games due to injury or illness, it gave opportunities for other players to get time on the field and gain valuable experience. After being shorthanded or coming off a tough loss, the boys continued to work hard and improve each practice. Several players who started with the JV team came up and made a huge impact, playing against top competition.
The efforts given by our three senior captains: Ian Smith, Ryan Campbell and Cazzy Major, will not be forgotten.

Smith and Campbell were second team all-conference selections. Major was a first team all-conference selection and was named co-offensive Player of the Year.

Other honors include Carlos Castro-Lopez receiving a first team selection, and honorable mention was given to Kamron Kaiser.

There was much to be pleased about this season and to celebrate, while there is also so much to look forward to for next year. All seven seniors will be missed!

Thank you parents and fans for all of your support throughout the season! A special thanks to assistant and goalies coach, Corey Rogers, and to Beth Major for being our team parent. Her time setting up team dinners, Senior Night, and all the communication throughout the season was very much appreciated!

The 5th/6th grade volleyball team had two matches on Saturday, October 23. 

The team avenged an early season loss by defeating Milwaukee Montessori. The team played St. Sebastian in its second match of the day and lost in a close contest. BA won the first set, St. Sebastian won the second set, and St. Sebastian was able to win the deciding set by a narrow four points.   

Ella Posnik and Grace Mila were awarded co-MVPs while Maria Simic won the Merit award!

-Coach Tracy Albers

The 7th/8th grade volleyball team continues to make strides toward success, and it’s evident how far the girls have come since the beginning of the season.

The team was disappointed to lose its match against St. Sebastian and to have the tournament at St. Mary Hales Corners canceled, but the girls continue to work hard!

Congratulations to Jordyn Holcomb for winning the MVP award and Shivi Shah for winning the Merit award.

On Saturday, October 23, the JR Knights football team finished its season with a rematch against a tough opponent, the Nicolet JR Knights. The JR Knights were defeated by a final score of 45-6. The boys fought hard until the end, and the refs were very complimentary of the team's sportsmanship. The players improved in all facets of the game throughout the season and had many exciting plays. The Merit award winner is Tate Nowacki and team MVP is Kolbe Jensen. Congratulations to the entire team on a great season! Special thanks to coaches Jeff Jurgens, Pete Cobb, Aaron Johnson, and Russ Kashian and to all of the parents for their support!

Saturday brought on a new challenge for the 7th/8th grade JR Knights when they traveled to Cudahy for the last game of the season. BA started off quickly, and Noah Thompson had a tremendous takeaway with an interception in the first few minutes of the game. The JR Knights started the second quarter off with a long touchdown run by Mason Dorn, but St. Francis/Cudahy countered with their own long touchdown run.

Although BA was down 13-7 at the half, the JR Knights tied it up in the fourth quarter after another touchdown by Mason Dorn. Unfortunately, the Knights’ inability to finish their opportunities hurt them as two touchdowns were called back due to penalties. Garrett Priebe had several big tackles. Working as a team and playing solid defense kept the boys in the game right up to the end. A strong defensive effort from St. Francis/Cudahy and some wasted scoring opportunities on offense left the JR Knights on the short end, losing 20-13. Even though the result was not what the team wanted, the JR Knights didn’t back down.
