The University School girls soccer team went 2-1 in the Badger Tournament in Lake Geneva Saturday.
Sometimes teams need a wake-up call. The University School girls’ soccer team needed one early Saturday morning in the first game of the Badger Tournament at Lake Geneva Badger High School. After the Wildcats fell behind 4-0 in the first half of their game against Waukesha South, their head coach Jason Rienzi abruptly woke his slumbering players with his halftime talk. “I didn’t want to be negative, but I had to tell them I thought they were playing like garbage,” he said, “I had to wake ‘em up.” The USM players responded to their coach's message.

Wildcats' offense went cold Thursday, forcing a loss at home against Brookfield.
The University School girls’ lacrosse team lost to the Brookfield Co-op 9-6 at USM on Thursday. An injury early in the game to one of USM’s top scorers, Kelly Brethauer, hurt the Wildcats offensive output. “We lost Kelly early in the game due to an injury and that hurt us offensively," head coach Sam Adey said. "I think it took us a bit to find our rhythm in the offense, and we just couldn't finish on our shots effectively.” USM scored on only six of its 18 shots. It remained a close game throughout thanks to USM’s defensive efforts. Adey attested, “Our defense played outstanding, and Ivy McKee had 12 saves.” The game seesawed early. Brookfield’s Morgan Hollowell scored the first goal just 1:08 into the game. USM’s Victoria Edmonds tied …
