Brookfield Central's Girls Soccer Team Wins State!

The Brookfield Central Girls Soccer team was crowned WIAA Division 1 State Champions after an impressive 3-0 victory over Bay Point on Saturday, June 17 at Uihlein Soccer Park. The team, led by Coach Daniel Makal, finished 15-2-2 for the overall season.

The team started the season ranked number one in its division and won the Greater Metro Conference (GMC) Title with a conference record of 6-0-1. A rigorous post-season required the defeat of two high-ranking teams in the sectional semifinals and finals, which led to a shutout victory over Oconomowoc in the state semi-finals by a score of 4-0.

This is the team's fifth state championship in school history and first since 2005. Congratulations, ladies!
