With a win over Wauwatosa West Thursday night, the only thing that stands between the Blue Dukes and a trip to the state tournament is a sectional finals game against New Berlin Eisenhower on Saturday.
The Whitefish Bay girls basketball team looked strong in its win over Wauwatosa West Thursday night, and now the Blue Dukes are just one win away from the state tournament. The Blue Dukes came out strong right out of the gate with a score of 20-6 after the first quarter. The scoring was a little more balanced through the remaining three quarters, leaving the Blue Dukes with a 54-37 win to advance to the final round of sectionals Saturday. Maya Jones led scoring for the Blue Dukes with 15 points. Elisabeth Johnston, Lindsey Agnew and Ava Stock scored 12 points a piece. Now, the Dukes tip off against New Berlin Eisenhower (25-0) at 1 p.m. Saturday at Waukesha South. The winner of that game goes to the Division 2 state tournament. Last year…

Patten scores 32 points to lead the team past Wisconsin Lutheran in sectional final game.
After watching Wisconsin Lutheran turn a 16-point deficit into a three-point lead in overtime, senior center Jamie Schneck admitted to having a bit of a flashback to 2010 when Whitefish Bay suffered a 17-point defeat to Catholic Memorial in the sectional final. And there was very little Schneck could do about it, since he had fouled out earlier in the overtime period. But in the end, his teammates had his back. Senior forward Ron Patten hit a driving, twisting shot in the lane with 25 seconds left to lead Whitefish Bay to a 51-50 overtime victory over Wisconsin Lutheran in the WIAA Division 2 Sectional Final Saturday afternoon at Marquette University's Al McGuire. “We didn’t want to go out like that again,” Schneck said. “What we wanted …

Those who stayed for the varsity game were treated to less tension.
