Sports Updates

Last week started with a Freshman Reserve game against Marquette on Monday. The Freshman team is hitting their stride late in the season and had another exciting win with a score of 49-36. What a great way to start the week!

Thursday saw JV in action away against Slinger with JV2 at home also against Slinger. JV2 was successful with a 35-15 win. JV unfortunately fell by a score of 21-35

Friday night was the Highlanders' last regular conference game away at Slinger. It was an exciting game to say the least. The weather was wet and the Owls were there to play. The Highlanders had a few misses in the air and two blown defensive plays to go into halftime down 6-14. The boys came out in the second half more determined than ever to right the ship and got to work. Some incredible plays later, including a 65 yard fake punt, they were in the lead by 1. Perseverance would be the theme as they held off Slinger's late run. Mother Nature and Hartford also helped step in and handed Whitefish Bay their first loss which gives our Mighty Highlanders a share of the North Shore Conference extending our streak to 17 years!!

Playoff's begin on Friday, October 20th with a game against Milwaukee Washington at HOME!! We hope to see everyone in attendance and be sure to stop by the Booster Tailgate and get your bowl of chili.

Girls Tennis:

Girls Golf:
Isabelle Maleki and Hallie Kent competed in the Girls State Golf Tournament at University Ridge Golf Course this past Monday and Tuesday. Hallie finished T10 and Isabelle finished 14th. Though Monday's scores were higher than both girls would've liked, they both bounced back on Tuesday and finished their last state tournament with really solid rounds of golf...both shooting 76. Congratulations Isabelle and Hallie! And good luck in your college golf careers!!
Girls Cross Country:
Girls Volleyball:
This past Tuesday, the girls varsity team went to Slinger for their last conference match of the season. The Highlanders came out strong, winning the first set 25-23. Then it was a back and forth battle, with Slinger winning the 2nd 11-25, Homestead took the 3rd 25-17, Slinger won the 4th 16-25. In a VERY controversial call to end the match, Homestead lost in the 5th set 13-15. The team finished off the week at the Arrowhead Varsity Invitational, Volley for the Cure, to benefit breast cancer research. The Highlanders finished the tournament 2-2, with losses to host Arrowhead and Kettle Moraine, and victories in the matches versus Slinger and Manitowoc. Regional playoffs start Thursday at 7pm. Homestead plays away at Kettle Moraine in Wales. Good luck girls!

Also, congratulations go out to the JV team for winning the NSC JV Tournament. Congratulations ladies.

Boys Volleyball:
The Homestead Fieldhouse was a buzz with the action of senior night as the Highlander’s hosted conference rival Cedarburg Bulldogs and celebrated Parent Night as well. The lengthy battle waged in the first set made the unedited manuscript of War & Peace look like Cliff Notes. With poetic symmetry, the seniors fought the good fight that sadly fell just short at an epic tally of 39-41. Seniors Stevie, Sam, Jack ,Tommy, and Chris, showed experience and veteran leadership and led the Highlander’s to victory in the 2nd set with sophomore Thomas Ochalek making an exciting game winning service ace. The Seniors led the team back again in the fourth for another win; but, a nail-bitter in the 5th set regrettably yielded a tough loss. Sam Looft’s 19 kills &11 blocks with Stevie Bresser's 41 kills powered Homestead's effort on Wednesday night. 

This past week the JV Boys had a game on Monday, Oct 9 against Hamilton Sussex Varsity team. The boys lost all three games but bravely fought and gained some great experience with receiving wicked jump serves. Most noteworthy was a POWER block from Antony Rainchik and strong back row support from Taylor Silverstein. On Wednesday, Oct 11, the boys celebrated Parent Night with a rare first game win over rival Cedarburg Bulldogs with a score of 25-19. Thank you to the enthusiastic cheering section including the JV Girls Volleyball team and friends. Highlights included epic blocks from Robbie Stegeman and Dylan Bradley. Logan Mandlman’s ace serve kicked off a rally followed by Harrison Prellwitz’s kill after a perfect set from Sam Barron. Ben Tucker and Heath Joubert delivered strong outside hits and tips, however the Highlanders dropped the last two games 24-26 and 15-25. 

All teams play away at Hartford Union on Wednesday Oct 18 with JV/JV2 at 5PM and Varsity at 6:30PM. Friday Oct 20, JV/JV2 will be competing at the conference tournament hosted by Hartford Union at 4PM. Saturday Oct 21 Homestead will be hosting a Varsity Invitational starting at 8:30AM. 
Boys Soccer:

The Homestead boys varsity soccer team had mixed results this week with a win over Slinger (8-3) and a loss against Wauwatosa East (4-2). The Slinger game started out as a challenge with unrelenting rain which made it an equalizer going into halftime 2-2. Jordan Gomez scored the first to goals with assists from Jackson Bogli and Luca DeMartino. Coming out of halftime, the Highlanders quickly rallied within a span of 3 minutes to score goals from Max Kelly, Jackson Bogli, and Jeff Skow. All the Highlanders got into the action with Drew Braaten scoring off an assist from Josh Teplin. Yezen Said provided offense scoring a penalty kick. And the final goal came off of an assist from Stefan Grbic to fellow Highlander Chris Tiako. The Homestead boys soccer team traveled to Wauwatosa East for another rainy game. The Highlanders found themselves down 3-0 in the early part of the first half. However, the Homestead boys rallied with 2 goals from Colin Satchie assisted from Luca DeMartino going into halftime. The conditions proved to be too much as Tosa East scored two more goals. The game was ended early due to rain/lightening around the 75 th minutes. The Homestead JV boys team also followed the varsity boys with a win over Slinger and a loss with Tosa East.
State tournament starts this week for the Varsity boys soccer team. They are seeded #7 and will host a home game this Thursday night against Manitowoc Lincoln at 7pm . Come cheer on the boys to a victory!
