Brookfield East girls track coach Jeff Ferguson mentioned it the other day - "There seems to be a renaissance going on in track in Brookfield."
The Brookfield Central girls are the defending state champ and they won the GMC Indoor Championships by 70.5 points, beating out Brookfield East, who finished second over Menomonee Falls by 45 points.
The boys weren't left out either, as Brookfield East won the boys indoor and Brookfield Central, led by their talented throwers, finished fourth.
The week before in Wauwatosa, The Trojan girls won their 13th straight Woodland Conference title and the boys won their first title in four years. This past week Tosa East's girls finished fourth behind Hannah Weinberg-Kinsey's great performance, scoring 30 of her team's 74 points.
Give Kathy and Dave Weinberg-Kinsey some credit for their daughter Hannah's big day in the Greater Metro Conference Indoor Championships on April 8. After finishing her field events - she set a GMC and school record by winning the high jump (5 feet, 5 inches) and taking third in the long jump (15-9 1/2) - Hannah saw that her shoe was ripped and she had two races to run.
So mom and dad came to the rescue and raced to the local shoe store and returned in time to finish second in the 400-meter dash and third in the 200.
Enjoy spring break.
Be a hit and have a ball!
