Whitnall's Sam Mentkowski and Patrick Wyrowski and Greenfield's Nathan Getzin look to extend their playing careers at the next level.
Three local football players — two from Whitnall and one from Greenfield — plan to play at the college level next fall. Whitnall's Sam Mentkowski, one of the top wide receivers in the state in terms of production, plans to play for the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, a program that played in the NCAA Division III semifinals in December. Mentkowski hauled in 72 passes for 1,008 yards and 12 touchdowns in nine games for the Falcons. Nathan Getzin, a mammoth interior offensive lineman for the Hustlin' Hawks, will play at Trinity International University in Illinois. The 6-4, 317-pound Greenfield senior was a first-team all-woodland Conference offensive guard and center for the Hawks last fall after playing tight end in 2011, when he was an …

Despite losing in the regular season finale to New Berlin West, Whitnall held onto to a share of the Woodland East in what turned out to be a three-way tie.
Well, it’s not exactly like the Whitnall Falcons drew it up, but when you wait 12 years for a conference title, you’ll take a piece of the crown any way you can get it. Even if you lose in wild, wild fashion. And even if you have to share the title with three other teams. Both happened to the Falcons on Friday. Whitnall finished the regular season 5-3 after a 56-42 shootout loss to New Berlin West on Friday, but thanks to Greendale’s 42-0 win over visiting Brown Deer, Whitnall remained tied atop the Woodland Conference East Division standings along with Brown Deer. Meanwhile, the South Milwaukee Rockets defeated New Berlin Eisenhower, 21-16, Friday to work their way into a three-way tie with Brown Deer and Whitnall. It’s the Rockets first …

Most high school football teams learned their playoff fates Friday, but a few teams are still fighting for a postseason berth when the regular season ends this weekend.
With just one week remaining in the regular season, almost every high school football team in the Milwaukee Patch area knows its postseason fate. Almost every team. Muskego, Racine Horlick, Greendale, Martin Luther and Brookfield Academy all can lock up playoff berths with victories Friday, but losses would either eliminate them from contention or significantly hurt their chances. In the third edition of Patch’s Postseason Possibilities, we take another look at each high school team in the Milwaukee Patch area and break down its playoff chances. Records and scenarios are updated as of Oct. 7. Look for an update to include next weekend’s games by noon Oct. 15. (To get in, a team needs four or more league wins.) In for sure Waukesha West (3-…

Whitnall sneaked out a win over Cudahy on Friday. Meanwhile, Greenfield was shut out by Brown Deer and had its postseason hopes dashed.
A failed two-point conversion late in the fourth quarter helped Whitnall seal a share of its first Woodland Conference title since 2000 on Friday. The Falcons rebounded from a 34-13 loss the previous week to Brown Deer to beat Cudahy, 22-22, at Falcon Field in the annual homecoming game. The win was huge for several reasons. First, is guaranteed the Falcons will be playing in the WIAA postseason after wrapping up the regular season at New Berlin West on Oct. 12. Whitnall improved to 5-2 in league games, assuring themselves a spot in the playoff field. In addition, the victory moved Whitnall to 4-1 in Woodland East games, tying them with Brown Deer atop the final division standings. In the win over Cudahy, Whitnall quarterback Zach Sutton …

Chrissy Zamora, a Greenfield High School graduate, will be in the homecoming parade and flip the coin before the varsity football game Friday.
Chrissy Zamora, the recently crowned Miss Wisconsin USA and 2005 Greenfield High School graduate, will participate in school's homecoming parade Friday and has been asked to do the coin flip at the start of the high school’s game against Brown Deer. "This weekend is going to be so much fun," Zamora said on her Miss Wisconsin USA Facebook page. Zamora, of Milwaukee, was crowned Miss Wisconsin USA 2013 on Sunday, Sept. 16, at the Fond du Lac Performing Arts Center. Her first appearance as Miss Wisconsin was at the 40th Annual Warrens Cranberry Festival on Sunday where she and Miss Wisconsin Teen USA Kate Redeker of Sheboygan participated in the parade and handed out some of the awards to parade entrants. As Miss Wisconsin USA, Zamora will …

Find out which Patch-area teams are in, out or fighting for the playoff lives.
Hey, high school football fans, want to know if your favorite team will be playing in this year’s WIAA postseason? Want to know what they need to get in? Well, welcome to the second edition of Patch’s Postseason Possibilities, where we take a look at each high school team in the Milwaukee Patch area and breakdown its playoff chances. Records and scenarios are updated as of 11 a.m. Oct. 1. Look for an update to include this weekend’s game by noon Oct. 8. (To get in, a team needs four or more league wins.) In for sure Waukesha West (3-3, 3-2): Even after losing to Catholic Memorial, 17-0, Friday, we won’t move the Wolverines out of this category, only because they finish against winless Waukesha North on Oct. 12. But with Arrowhead on the …

Patch user Amy Otto submitted nearly three dozen photos from Friday's Greenfield-South Milwaukee game. Check them out!
Both teams suffered losses on Friday, hurting the Falcons' chances at winning the league title and the Hawks' chances at earning a playoff berth.
The Whitnall and Greenfield football teams came into Friday night with two very different, but distinct goals. Neither of them were able to accomplish them. The Whitnall Falcons (4-2, 3-1), in search of their first conference title since 2000, were unable to secure at least a share of the crown when they lost at Brown Deer, 34-13. With one Woodland East Division game remaining, the Falcons are now tied for first with Brown Deer and South Milwaukee. Greenfield, meanwhile, in need of two wins in its final three games in order to qualify for the WIAA postseason, suffered a 14-7 loss to South Milwaukee on Friday. That leaves the Hawks (2-4, 2-2) desperate for victories against both Brown Deer next Friday and Wauwatosa West on Oct. 12.
