Freeman's State Golf Preview

from today's Waukesha Freeman -

Memorial chasing another title   
Central’s Wajda seeking first crown

WAUKESHA – One team is after a repeat, while one individual is chasing redemption.

The Catholic Memorial High School boys golf team posted a 297 on the second day to win last year’s WIAA Division 2 state championship.

Brookfield Central senior Eddie Wajda had a more difficult fate, falling to a tie for second place after leading the first-round of the Division 1 individual competition.

Both will have their chances at state titles Monday and Tuesday at the WIAA state golf tournament at University Ridge in Madison.

CMH is among the eight teams competing in Division 2 after winning the Classic 8 Conference, regional and sectional titles in recent weeks.

Wajda is in a similar position. He won the Greater Metro Conference Player of the Year award, and won a regional and sectional title in helping the Lancers get back to state as a team.

Catholic Memorial has seniors Conor Farrell, Dylan Allen and Joel Stanislawski leading the charge. Farrell and Allen tied for second at the New Holstein Sectional earlier this week. Allen won the Classic 8 tournament, while sophomore Mike Immekus, Allen and Stanislawski were first-team allleague selections.

Junior Tyler King and Farrell were second-team All-Classic 8 selections.

Wajda’s entire team will compete Monday and Tuesday after Central finished second in its sectional. Sophomore Sean Yun was fifth in the sectional, and senior Matt Maus was 10th.

Kettle Moraine senior Dylan Patscot, the Classic 8 Player of the Year, is an individual qualifier along
with Mukwonago junior Brad Leitermann, New Berlin West senior Andrew Knoll, Muskego junior Kyle Warkoczenoski and Arrowhead senior Kyle Tanriverdi.

Marquette is the state’s top-ranked team, and the Hilltoppers won their own sectional by shooting 304. Homestead was second in the sectional at 307, as the sectional featured five scores under 320.
