Kelshawn Johnson's only peer on the West Allis Central record board has been himself.

When the Bulldogs took fourth place at the Hale Invite on May 12, Johnson won the 110-meter hurdles and broke his own school record with a time of 14.24, with brother Kelvon following shortly thereafter at 14.45.

The brothers switched places in the 300 hurdles, with Kelvon winning (40.21) and Kelshawn in second (40.24). Kelshawn then won the triple jump with a 42-4.

The two teamed with Xavier Mullins and Jeff Leflore to win the 4x100-meter relay in 44.04 seconds. Leflore also won the discus (147-1), and Darius Adkins delivered his best toss of the season in winning the shot put (46-5 1/4).

The Weightmans' Relay of Leflore, Adkins, Prentiss Johnson and Julien Rivera also won in 51.94.

Hale took third on the girls side and fourth on the boys side at the same meet.

Winners included HaLena Lassiter in the girls shot put (33-6 1/2) and discus (104-7), Thomas Hines in the boys long jump (22-8), Marshall Rushton in the boys 800 (1:59.87), and Sammy Miller in the boys high jump (6-2).

The Whitnall girls track and field took second at the Hale Invite, and the boys placed sixth.

Bridget Finn won the 1,100-meter steeplechase, an event held annually at Hale but usually at no other point during the year. Her time was 4:02.03, just ahead of teammate Katie Klages (4:14.08).

Austin Marshall won the boys pole vault (12-6).

After a 12-0 loss to Wauwatosa East on May 9, West Allis Central bounced back in a close 3-2 loss to SWCHA. Jackie Molina stole the opening kickoff and scored just 21 seconds into the game, and she took another shot that led to a rebound played into the net by Carla Ferreira for a 2-1 lead. SWCHA was able to score the winning goal on a breakaway in the second half.

Greenfield defeated South Milwaukee on May 11, 5-1. Ashley Meinholz netted a hat trick, and junior Sabrija Pantich scored twice.

Whitnall went scoreless in two matches, falling to Greendale, 5-0, and New Berlin Eisenhower, 1-0.


Greenfield’s hold on first place in the Woodland Conference East Division became more tenuous with a 6-2 loss to Whitnall on May 11, cutting Greenfield’s lead over the Falcons to one game.

Haley Wynn went 3 for 4 for Whitnall and got the win with seven strikeouts in four innings. Sierra Grubor and Abby Cunningham each drove in two runs for the winning Falcons.

The rest of the Woodland week was smooth sailing for the Hustlin’ Hawks, with wins over Shorewood, South Milwaukee and Greendale by a combined score of 26-0. Pitcher Alyssa Vilkoski allowed seven hits over two of those wins and struck out 24. Paige Kowaleski got the win against Shorewood, and Taylor Johnson finished 3 for 3 with four RBIs.

Olivia Kelly, who sustained a knee injury in the fall that required surgery, made her season debut against South Milwaukee.

The Hawks (16-3) were limited to two hits in a 12-0 loss to nonconference foe Oak Creek on May 8. It’s a notable score in that Greenfield and Oak Creek will both be jockeying for a spot in the state tournament as members of the same Division 1 sectional.

Whitnall (18-4) won six of seven games in a remarkably busy week, finishing with two wins in three tries in a Saturday tournament at the YMCA at Pabst Farms in Oconomowoc.

Haley Wynn homered twice and finished with four RBIs against Homestead in a 15-4 victory; Abby Cunningham also homered. The Falcons closed with a 5-4 win over Arrowhead.

The rest of the week included four Woodland Conference wins. Mackenzie Sutton homered, posted three hits and six RBIs in a 9-3 win over New Berlin Eisenhower. Whitnall downed South Milwaukee, 10-0, and crushed Pewaukee, 20-0.

West Allis Hale (12-4) incurred its first Greater Metro Conference losses last week, starting with a May 8 battle between two undefeated teams in league play. Menomonee Falls got the best of Hale, 10-0.

The Huskies bounced back to down Brookfield Central, 11-2, before falling again to Falls on May 10, 5-1. Hale finished the week by downing Wauwatosa East, 12-5, and Divine Savior Holy Angels, 11-1.

Catherine Gerschwiler homered and finished with four RBIs against Central, and she had the lone RBI in two games against Falls.

Against DSHA, Jilie Palesse drove in three runs.
