from today's Waukesha Freeman --
Crusaders Win While Dodging Bullets
by Tony Mooren, Freeman Correspondent
Editorial comment: OK, they did say that we won, but if you read the article you would hardly even know that we were on the field, or you'd think that the Crusader work on defense really shouldn't be counted as decisive. As in any sport, defense can be the difference maker. We had it, and when the time came (for at least one game-winning point), they did not. Enough said.

Volleyball's Kelli Browning Named MVC Freshman of the Week
ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- Creighton Volleyball’s Kelli Browning [CMH '11] has been named the initial Missouri Valley Conference Freshman of the Week, league officials announced today.
A Waukesha, Wis., product, Browning averaged 1.58 kills and 1.08 blocks per set while hitting .241 in three matches last weekend at the Texas A&M Invitational.
She opened her career with six blocks and 11 kills in a five-set win over UTSA. The six blocks were the most in a debut in school history, while her 11 kills rank second-highest and were the most in a debut by any Bluejay since 1994.
After three kills and two blocks at Texas A&M in a loss on Friday, she closed her week with five kills and five blocks in a rematch with the Aggies on Saturday.
She is the first Creighton Volleyball student-athlete honored after the first week of the season since Korie Lebeda claimed MVC Player of the Week accolades on Aug. 28, 2006.
Browning and her teammates will head to Manhattan, Kan., on Tuesday to take on Kansas State. The contest can be heard locally on KKAR (1290 AM), with first serve at 7 pm.

99% OF CATHOLIC MEMORIAL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TAKE ACT AND BEAT STATE AND LOCAL RESULTS
Catholic Memorial High School (CMH) class of 2011 once again out- paced their state and local peers on the ACT, earning a composite score of 24.6 of 36 versus the state-wide average of 22.2. With 99% of its students taking the ACT it boasts a five-year average composite of 24.8. A collegeprep school with the International Baccalaureate Program, Catholic Memorial, does not impose a selective admission process.
Detailed results from the 205 member class of 2011 are stellar
- 80% of the test takers averaged 27.2. CMH students exceed by 15% the segmented ACT College Readiness benchmark scores for Math, Science, English, and Reading.
- Earned $13.6 million in college scholarship awards from selective colleges and community
Catholic Memorial principal, Bob Hall, expects exceptional results because, “With increasingly robust learning support services, we prepare every student for success in high school and in college. We meet the needs of the valedictorian and the student who struggles for a variety of reasons. This year students returned to a redesigned Academic Resource Center and we welcomed an exceptional educator and alumna, Sue Exner Ruf ’69, to our team. It’s exciting that Sue chose to cap her career at CMH after 37 years serving the Waukesha Public Schools."
Hall concluded, “Every one of the 2011 Catholic Memorial High School graduates is to be commended for their academic success and their growth through extracurricular participation. At CMH the winning combination of family, faculty, and faith is what contributes to this outstandingly high ACT composite score and to all other measures of success.”

First, there is the Freeman coverage of the CMH victory in the Boys Soccer, Waukesha Classic. Given that the game ended in a tie even after overtime, the decision in a shoot-out made CMH goalkeeper Ryan Zingsheim the center of attention and worthy of the shout-out.
Second, right after being named a J-S "Player to Watch", CMH senior, Aaron Horvat is featured in today's Waukesha Freeman "Prep Profile" column.
Break-out quote: "Playing here [at CMH] has been unbelievable" Horvat said. "It's unbelievable playing four years under John Bisswurm, because he is an unbelievable coach."
Aly Dawson, jr., OH, Catholic Memorial: The Marquette recruit earned playing time in the area's most talented lineup last season and finished with 218 kills and 25 blocks.
Amanda Hansen, sr., MH, Catholic Memorial: At 6-3 the Seton Hall recruit casts an imposing figure in the middle for the Crusaders. Posted 68½ blocks last season and received honorable mention on the all-state team.

Joining me in this celebration were four fine young priests who are involved at CMH in various ways. From left to right - Fr. Kevin Barnekow, the newly ordained associate pastor at St. William Parish who looks forward to being chaplain to the basketball teams; Fr. Phil Bogacki, associate pastor of St. John Vianney Parish, a new member of the CMH Board of Directors who will also be working with our CMH Pro-Life Club; Fr. Erich Weiss, associate pastor of Jerome Parish and chaplain to the hockey teams; and Fr. Sean O'Connell, associate pastor of St. Dominic who was the first associate to start working as our football chaplain two years ago.
The readings for the mass were Ezekiel 36:24-28; Ephesians 4:1-6; and Luke 4:16-22. My homily centered the community becoming one in Christ as each member grows in Faith, Maturity, Humility, Leadership and Caritas in Omnibus. An audio version of the homily should be online in a day or so.
...as I once again appear on the Relevant Radio network, during the Morning Air program segment called "Ask Father." I will be on tomorrow from 7 - 8am.

Each of these men offer time to CMH in a variety of ways. Fr. Sean is starting his third season as chaplain to the foot ball team. Fr. Phil joined the CMH Board of Directors this past summer and will work with the CMH Pro-Life Club this year. Fr. Kevin, who was just ordained to the priesthood in May, is looking forward to offering chaplaincy work with our varsity basketball teams.
Along with these three priests, some other priests who offer time to CMH include:
Fr. Erich Weiss, associate pastor of St. Jerome's Parish in Oconomowoc, is chaplain to the CMH hockey program.
Fr. T. J. Uhen, an Opus Dei priest from the Layton Study Center in Brookfield, comes to CMH every Thursday to hear confessions of students.
Fr. John Yockey, pastor at St. Jerome's in Oconomowoc, has served for many years on the Board of CMH.
Fr. Curt Frederick, pastor of St. William's, and Fr. Ken Omernick, pastor of St. Charles in Hartland, are the other pirest members of the CMH Board.

A choir of upper class students, faculty and staff brought music to the celebration under the guidance of CMH music director, Mr. Peter Lange.
In my homily, I spoke of the history and traditions of CMH and how they continue to be guiding forces in every community member's daily life. The scriptures of the day reminded us of the two great commandments, at CMH we make these real in our motto, Caritas in Omnibus.
After mass, new students broke up into groups with peer mentors (upper classmen who will work with new students for the first months of school) to walk through their schedules and the details of everyday life.
Dear friends: be prudent and wise, build your lives upon the firm foundation which is Christ. This wisdom and prudence will guide your steps, nothing will make you fear and peace will reign in your hearts. Then you will be blessed and happy and your happiness will influence others.
