The Upper School girls soccer team began its season this past week by dropping two matches to Waukesha North, 3-0, on April 3 at home and at Racine St. Catherine's, 2-1, on April 5.
At halftime, the team's impressive defense held Waukesha North to a scoreless tie. However, during the game, three players suffered injuries, minimizing BA's already limited roster. Despite these circumstances, sophomore Sarah Morris showed great determination throughout the whole game, playing a lot of unexpected minutes. Senior Ana Bayerlein played an outstanding game, making 18 crucial saves and only allowing three goals.
Two days later the Blue Knights were physically outmatched in the first half and were down 2-0 by halftime. But they shut out the Angels in the second half as senior Liz Collins scored in the 75th minute with an assist from senior Eimile Pesch.
The Blue Knights will play again at BA against The Prairie School at 4:30 p.m. April 13.

The Blue Knights have continued to stay hot going 4-0 this week, defeating rival Lake Country Lutheran on April 3 and 4 and Madison Memorial on April 7.
The Blue Knights four-hit Lake Country Lutheran (6-0) in the first game at the Fields of Freedom. The game on April 4 at Lake Country Lutheran was a little different story, winning, 3-2, in extra innings. Tyler Frohwirth and Nate Stolte were phenomenal against Lake Country Lutheran, both refusing to give up any earned runs in the series.
The April 7 doubleheader saw Brookfield Academy dominate a solid Division 1 team, beating Madison Memorial 16-9 in the first game, and 11-3 in the second. Jake Kolasinski started the first game on the right foot, but ran into trouble in the fourth inning and was relieved by ace pitcher Tyler Frohwirth to get them out of the jam. The second game was started by Zach Kolasinski, giving a solid performance of three runs in six innings pitched.
