Students: As you start to attend home and away sporting events, it is important to remember that you are representing your school and community. Good sportsmanship is expected. Please cheer positively for Germantown and not against the opposing team, coaches, or officials. Profane, racial, sexist, or ethnic comments or other intimidating actions directed at officials, student-athletes, coaches, or team representatives will not be tolerated and are grounds for removal from the site of competition. Your help is appreciated.
Additionally, if you plan to attend Friday's away varsity football game at Menomonee Falls, let's aim to help the Salvation Army gather non-perishable food items to bolster their food pantries. There will be donation barrels at the entrance of the game.
The Band is hard at work at the first home varsity football game! Well done to all members!

Freshman Star Pope brought home a consolation medal, juniors and #3 doubles partners Maddie Schmit and Gwen Clay brought home 3rd place medals, Sammy Neinas at #1 singles also brought home a 3rd place medal, and Lyla Becker brought home the gold at #2 singles. The girls faced lineup changes, weather, and so much more, but they played their hearts out.
The boys' cross country team kicked off their competition season with The Brookfield Central Lancer Challenge held at Mitchell Park in Brookfield on Thursday, August 26th. Eleven teams competed in the meet which was run as a grade-level challenge, giving athletes the opportunity to showcase their abilities against other athletes their age. Medalists placing in the top 10 among others in their grade included freshmen Jack Wanezek and Cooper Walsh, sophomores Will Cascio and Eric Olson, junior Dillon Walker, and seniors Cooper Feltz and Gavin Sadowski.
On Friday, September 3, the team will compete at Greenfield Park in The West Allis Hale Leighton Betz Cross Country Invitational with the freshmen boys competing at 3:50, the junior varsity boys at 5:05, and the varsity boys at 6:10. The varsity roster for the first varsity race of the season will consist of Dillon Walker, Gavin Sadowski, Will Cascio, Cooper Feltz, Kobe Chapman, Ross Gaskill, Eric Olson, and Joey Knopp. Go Warhawks!
Although the girls' cross country team had only two races, they were tallied separately by each grade level. Because this was a developmental meet, no team scores were kept; at the remaining meets, there will be team scores for varsity and JV.
Sophomore Angela Zheng took more than a minute off of her PR from last season... WAY TO GO Angela! Senior Khushi Tanna is FIVE SECONDS OFF OF HER PR... 20 minutes is going down this year!

The team has 4 athletes who have already made the Top 20+ list — Claire Reedy (22:11), Keira Lorbecki (23:39), Grace Pedersen (24:33), and Angela Zheng (24:44); all have all run a 5K race under 25:00!
Keep up the great work!
