CMH Golfer sinks a Hole-In-One

According to Golf Digest, the odds of an amatuer golfer getting a hole-in-one are greater than 12,000 to 1. 

Well, thanks to CMH junior, Lauren Klubertanz, most of us can rest assured that we are among the other 11,999.

From today's Waukesha Freeman -

At yesterday's conclusion of the Classic 8 mega-mini tournament, held at the Legends of Brandybook, Lauren hit the rare, golfers dream of a hole-in-one.  This would help her to a fourth place finish in the tournament.

CMH Boys Soccer supports Leukemia Research

Catholic Memorial High School Varsity Boys Soccer Team
Champions Leukemia Research in Memory of Coach’s Nephew

Waukesha, Wisc. – The 8th Annual Sam Beres Soccer Tournament will take place on Labor Day weekend, August31-September 1, 2012, at the home field that CMH shares with Waukesha South High School located at 401 E. Roberta Ave., Waukesha. Proceeds will be donated to the Medical College of Wisconsin for leukemia research. Donations of new or gently used soccer gear for children in Guatemala are also being accepted as part of Futbol por Guatemateos.

The tournament is held in memory of Sam Beres who lost his battle with leukemia in April 2000 at age 6.  Sam Beres was the nephew of Catholic Memorial's (CMH) varsity soccer coach and alumnus, John Bisswurm ’77, and brother of CMH JV soccer coach and alumnus, Jordan Beres ‘09.  Bisswurm, CMH coaching for his 33rd year also heads the family business, International Concrete Products in Germantown, Wisc.

"On behalf of the entire Bisswurm family I am very grateful and proud of the charitable work done by the students and families of the CMH  boys soccer program for two causes that have deeply impacted my life," said John Bisswurm.

In addition to raising money for leukemia, the CMH boys’ soccer team is collecting new or gently used soccer gear for children in Guatemala. This past summer the former CMH JV boys’ soccer uniforms were given to children in Guatemala as part of Futbol por Guatemateos. Donations will be accepted at the tournament. 

The alumni soccer game will follow the championship match. All former players, no matter the age, are encouraged to participate.

Walk-A-Thon is Coming!!!!

We've had the Olympics...
We are in the homestretch to the playoffs...
The Packers are in pre-season...

But the real contest has only just begun...

For the second year in a row, for the CMH Walk-A-Thon, it is

Team Hartmann
Team Hall

Dr. Hall, our CMH principal, was a bit of an upstart last year and gave me a run for the money. But age, wisdom and a network of great team members like you won the day. 

The time has arrived again for all of us to join together to Support CMH, fend off Team Hall, and make a statement!  It will be an example of your enthusiasm and leadership which will impact all of our CMH students and faculty.

Both Dr. Hall and I have set very ambitious goals this year,

I know that, with you help, we will reach that goal long before Team Hall chooses new fashionable uniform socks and shoelaces for the Walk-A-Thon.  I am also confident that all of you will come together with me to exceed that goal for the sake of CMH!

The CMH Walk-A-Thon is the largest annual fundraising effort by students and faculty.  This year, they have chosen a great theme - Walking Together for a Common Cause!

So please, make your pledge of support today for Team Hartmann and the 2012 CMH Walk-A-Thon - Walking Together for a Common Cause.

It's Back to School!

 Yes, today was the first day of the 2012-2013 school year.  Part of the "festivities" is Picture Day.

 Students traveled by class to a variety of stations to learn things necessary for the coming school year.  Here Mr. Plechaty reviews with the Senior Class the new CMH Honor Code and the Honor Code Oath that each student will take at mass later in the day.

 Julie Lindahl, CMH grad and Director of Admissions, talks to the Juniors about Walk-A-Thon 2012.

As is appropriate, the day ended with an all school mass, held at St. Mary's parish.  As is the Catholic tradition, the community celebrated the readings and prayers from the "Mass of the Holy Spirit."  This continues a five hundred year old tradition of Catholic institutes of learning beginning the year asking the intercession of Holy Spirit, source of wisdom.

We are all looking forward to another great year!

Andy Stasik, Top Golfer

Hi Fr. Paul

 So here's the info from the summer for Andy and his golf.

Andy mainly focused on the Milwaukee County Par 3 Golf Tournaments in the summer and played in 6 of the 8 events. He finished in 1st once, 2nd twice, 3rd once and 5th place twice in which he qualified to play in the final Invitational tournament at Lincoln Park on August 6th.  Andy finished tied for 1st with 4 other kids, but lost in the sudden death play-off. But to us it was not a loss... Because after the play-off for 1st place was decided – they had a scorecard play-off to determine the rest of the places and it was based on how well you did on the tougher holes on the course and Andy ended up getting 3rd place and a trophy.  Along with getting enough points to make him the 2012 Player of the Year in the Par 3 Tournaments.   

So despite all his physical limitations he had a great summer of golf and defeated the odds.    Thanks much.

See you soon 
Linda Stasik
