Girls Lose a Heartbreaker in Regional Sem-Finals
  
Friday night the Girls headed to Cedarburg to take on their arch rivals the Bulldogs in the Regional Semi-finals. Playing in front of their largest crowd of the season, Cedarburg jumped out to a 12-point lead at halftime against the struggling Highlanders. But the second half was a completely different story as Homestead’s pressure defense completely shut down Bulldog star Claire Diener and forced more than a dozen turnovers allowing the Highlanders to battle back to take the lead with 4 minutes to go. As both teams traded baskets down the stretch, it was Homestead that found itself in the driver’s seat with less than a minute to go. But 5 straight missed free throws down the stretch by the Highlanders, allowed the Bulldogs to stay in the game until Cedarburg Sophmore Ella Rolison got lose under the basket for an easy layup with 2.5 seconds to play to take a one-point lead. Coach Wolf was able to draw up a play for one final shot, which Freshman Kaitlyn Odem drained from beyond the arc, but unfortunately she didn’t get the shot off before the buzzer. Sophmore Delaney Buzzell led the Highlanders with a double double (13 points and 13 rebounds). Lexi Buzzell had 9 points followed by Katelyn Odem with 7, Daja Young with 6, Eva Brandenburg with 6 and Zoe Mueller with 5. The girls gave a valiant effort, finishing off their season 11-11 overall and tied for 5th in the Northshore Conference at 10-8. Thank you coaches, players and parents for a memorable season.
Girls Gymnastics
The Homestead Gymnastics team competed in the North Shore Conference on Friday, February 12th at Hartford Union High School. The lady highlanders showed true grit and determination at the meet with many season high scores, new skills and solid routines. 

For the JV team on beam, Hannah Peterson had a terrific routine that earned her a 3rd place podium finish! (Even with a fall). Ellie Stern did an outstanding dive cartwheel within her routine and her dismount was a solid stick. The JV team has a lot to be proud of on floor as well. Mia Goebel and Ari Halaska had great routines that really showed off their handwork this season. The team cheered on Ari in her last floor routine as a senior and she did an amazing job!! In addition, Peyton Berryman stepped up to the plate and performed beautifully after Valerie Tzuzhilkov was injured on beam.  On vault, A’mya Walker and Ellie Stern had their best vault score thus far this season! On bars, Lauren VanVooren showed outstanding form and had one of her best routines this season. Congrats Lauren on your awesome switch kip!

For the Varsity team, Valerie Tzuzhilkov and Lucy Gonzalez both performed their new advanced high superior skills: a full twisting dismount and both girls stuck it beautifully. Maggie Pokorny had an exquisite beam routine that earned her her highest score this season and the North Shore Conference beam championship with a 9.475!! On floor, Eve Marks, Gonzalez, and Pokorny received full bonus points on their routines! Mark’s advanced high superior skill was perfectly executed and was amazing! The vault seemed to pose some obstacles for the Highlanders but they were able to finish the rotation strong and Hannah Peterson had a her personal record on vault with an 8.300. On bars, the final event of the night, the team rallied and showed great enthusiasm. Berryman pushed through and finished strong with her routine despite some setbacks at previous meets. Mia Wang had a fantastic routine with beautiful form and Pokorny anchored the event with a strong second place conference finish even after an injury on the vault. This is definitely a team that preservers and rises to the challenges in front of them.

In the end, both Varsity and JV walked away with fourth place finishes out of the eight conference teams competing (136.0750 (V) 113.6500 (JV). Maggie Pokorny took second place for the North Shore Conference all around with a 36.675. Congratulations girls on a terrific season. Good luck as the Varsity team competes this Saturday, February 20th at Sectionals.

Boys Basketball
Varsity -

Tuesday was the last regular season home game for the season and it was an evening to celebrate our seniors! Prior to the game, seniors Thomas Burns, Keelen Allen, and team manager, Joey Naum were celebrated. Lighthearted "roasts" were given by Evan Endres and Sam Lococo for Thomas and Keelen and Thomas Burns for Joey. Parents of the seniors were also honored for their dedication and support to their children and the boys basketball program. You will all be missed! 

The final game against Slinger proved to be a proper send off for the seniors as the Highlanders came out on top, 66-45. Three players were in double figures in scoring with Adam Riese leading the way with 19 followed by Solomon Garrison (16) , and Tim Franks (13). Other scorers were Evan Endres (6), Thomas Burns and Keelen Allen (4), Sam Lococo and Aiden Reis (2). Keelen Allen also pulled down 9 of the team's rebounds. Great way to send off the seniors boys!

The other two games this week were against Nicolet on Thursday to end the regular season North Shore Conference play and a showcase tournament game vs. Ashwaubenon on Saturday. Unfortunately, Nicolet got the best of Homestead, winning the contest 64-53. Keelen Allen lead all scorers with 16 followed by Adam Riese (13), Evan Endres (9), Solomon Garrison and Tim Franks (both 6), and Sam Lococo (3). 

The Ashwaubenon game was a heartbreaking loss in overtime 82-72. After going down early in the first half, Homestead turned it around and was up 2 at the halftime break. Coming out from the halftime break, the Highlanders took complete control of the game, going up by as many as 9 points, but in the last 2 minutes of the game, Ashwaubenon found their 3 point range and missed free throws by Homestead ended in a tie of 66 at the end of regulation. In overtime, turnovers, missed shots, and missed free throws again plagued the Highlanders. Ashwaubenon continued the hit their shots and Homestead could not recover. Four players were in double figures in scoring with Evan Endres leading the way with 20 followed by Tim Franks (18), Adam Riese (13), and Solomon Garrison (11). Keelen Allen nearly had another double-double, falling just one point short with 9 points and 10 rebounds. Allen also added 3 assists and 2 steals to his line. 

This week, the Highlanders enter playoffs with a game at Menomonee Falls on Friday at 7pm. GOOD LUCK BOYS!!
