Fall prep sports have officially begun this week. My goodness, what happened to summer? (My wife said it was two days last week).
On Monday of this week, the high school linksters and kickers could officially work as a team.
That means Jon Mroz (Brookfield Central), Herbie Dundun (Brookfield East), Mike Parulski (Wauwatosa West) and new head coach Eric Dale (Wauwatosa East) will be getting ready for the soccer season. Dale replaced long-time Tosa East coach Bob Prange, who wanted to spend more time with his young family.
On the golf course, Chris Minchk (Brook East), Brian Scrobel (Brook Central) and Sarah Sallman (Tosa East/West) all will have their teams swinging away on the links.
Football, swimming/diving and tennis got underway Tuesday, so veteran coaches Doug Lange (Central) and Tom Swittel (T.East) will be getting their teams ready, while second-year coaches Sal Logue (B.East) and Matt Good (T. West) will be looking for a better season the second time around.
Glen Slonac (T.East), Zervas Kosta (T.West), Dave Steinbach (Central) and Linda Lied (East) are back on the tennis courts, while Mike Rose (B.East), Bill Twitchell (Central) and Russ Weigel (T.East) return to the swimming pool while veteran swim coach Dale Schrank takes over at Tosa West.
Boys and girls cross country and girls volleyball is set for next week and boys volleyball is the last to start on Aug. 24.
