There will be two big Greater Metro Conference games coming up this Friday - one on the boys side and one on the girls.
5th-ranked Divine Savior Holy Angels (6-0, 9-1) and 7th-rated Brookfield Central (6-0, 11-1) meet in Brookfield at 7:30 p.m. Friday night. Last year Central won the title, beating the Dashers on the road (45-38) and then DSHA beat Central at home in the season finale after the Lady Lancers won the title (42-29).
These two games will probably decide the title, barring injury, illness or something unforeseen. Check out my matchup story in this Thursday's BrookfieldNOW paper and web site.
On the boys end, Wauwatosa East (5-0, 9-2) travels to Sussex Hamilton (5-0, 7-2) to face the Chargers in the battle for first. The Red Raiders won twice last year at Sussex (84-67) and at home (91-59), so I'm curious to see how far the Chargers have come this season. It will be fun to see what the Tosa East defense can do against Kameron Cerroni (22.2) and Brett Meinecke (17.8) the top scoring duo in the GMC.
Brookfield Central (3-2, 6-4), which lacks the super athlete like Cory Degner this year, takes on Marquette (4-1, 8-2-1) and Garrett Maloney (13.0). The game is huge for the Lancers, who have lost four of five games.
Wauwatosa West (5-0) has to beat Brown Deer (2-3) on the road Friday and not make it a 'trap game' before the game with New Berlin Eisenhower (5-0) on Jan. 23.
Congratulations to Tosa East senior Glen Kendl, who needs one win to become Tosa's all-time victory leader. Going into Wednesday's match with Greendale, the 285-pound Kendl shares the lead with Nick Morin, who set the mark last year, with 115 wins. Kendl is 23-0. Two weeks ago, Zach Sines became Brookfield East's all-time win leader.
The Brookfield East/Central co-op gymnastics team keeps getting outstanding performances out of junior Katelyn Malcore, one of the area's top performers.
Here's a get well wish for Central sophomore Elizabeth Tzortzos, who did a release move off the bars and peeled off and hurt her back in a recent meet against Menomonee Falls/Germantown. She will be out about a week. Liz is Central's No. 2 performer.
Be a hit and have a ball until next time!
