Brookfield Central's girls golf coach Brian Scrobel and girls tennis coach Dave Steinbach pretty much block off the first two weeks of the month of October. Why? Because the Lady Lancers are heading to state once again this year.
You see, this is the 13th straight season the girls have gone to state for tennis and 7th in a row for the golfers.
Despite the fact the Wauwatosa East (3-4) and West (0-7) football teams have a combined record of 3-11 with two games left to play, it's not the fault of the squad's respective junior quarterbacks that the locals are struggling.
On the contrary.
Brookfield Central couldn't have drawn a nicer script for the final game of the football season.
Many people figured the Lancers chances of winning the title were slim and none when they dominated Marquette, but made five turnovers and lost, 10-6, a few weeks back. That left The Hilltoppers and West Allis Hale on top of the pack.
