Land O' Lakes playoffs, prep sports beginning

Published on: 8/14/2010

It's supposed to be my slow time, but someone forgot to tell me.

I've been busy with non-preps the past few weeks with the Brookfield Blue Sox and Bulldogs clinching playoff positions for this weekend's playoffs.

The second-seeded Bulldogs receive a bye and don't have to play Saturday and the fourth-seeded Sox play the fifth-seeded Sussex Cardinals at 1 p.m. The top-seeded West Bend Seven-Up host the lowest seeded winner of Saturday's games, while the Bulldogs host the higher of the two seeds. Brookfield's games are at beautiful McCoy Field.

The other Saturday first-round games have No. 6-seeded Pewaukee at No. 3-seeded Oconomowoc. If the seeds hold up - the Blue Sox will travel to West Bend and Oconomowoc will travel to play the Bulldogs.


Our prep football preview section is going to be in the Aug. 26 issue, so I've been traveling around talking to Tom Swittel of Brookfield East and Jamie Meulemans of Brookfield Central, both in their first year at their current schools, and Matt Good of Wauwatosa West, now in his third season. Tosa East coach coach Jake Wolter and I will meet up on Tuesday.

High school soccer, golf and tennis are all starting or have started already, so look for previews in the upcoming issues.

Be a hit and have a ball.
