The Whitefish Bay sports boosters are leading the way with an app that will allow fans to share photos, read sports news and find information for upcoming events.
Listen up, Duke diehards. There's now a way to stay connected with Whitefish Bay sports no matter where you are with a new Duke Pride mobile app. Lora Brewster, the social media and public relations chair for Duke Pride athletic boosters, has noticed many of her real estate customers conduct their transactions through apps and text messages. She hopes the Duke Pride app will similarly bring Duke Pride spirit to more students and alumni, resulting in more fundraising dollars and stronger community spirit.

"It has all of the athletic news in one place, at your fingertips." The…

The five guys who block for Whitefish Bay's high-scoring offense aren't used to getting recognition, but that doesn't mean linemen aren't people, too.
Rashadeem Gray of Whitefish Bay has 1,359 rushing yards, 22 touchdowns and a really cool nickname, “Rah-Rah.” The five offensive linemen who block for him don’t get the stats, but they have given themselves a nickname — “The Basement Bunch,” according to right guard Bobby Linneman, because they are the foundation for the offense. Gray, Linneman and the Blue Dukes (9-1) visit Brookfield East (10-0) on Friday in a WIAA Division 2, Level 3 playoff contest. The five players who toil on the offensive line for haven’t gotten the recognition that skill players such as Gray and Grant Menard do, but that changes today.

About three years ago, Paul Sandvick decided coaching his kids and going to their sports games wasn't enough. The local dentist decided to start WFB Hoops, the high school basketball program's first booster club, and he also volunteered to make free mouthguards for the boys and girls basketball teams. He has since opened the doors to his office on Port Washington Road to all of the school's football players, rugby players and hockey players. While other dentists might charge $50 for mouthguards, Sandvick doesn't seem too concerned by the cost. As a dentist who cares about Whitefish Bay athletics, he says he's just doing what he can to give back to the community. "For me, sports has been such a huge part of my life — I still play basketball…

By reconfiguring the pool, Whitefish Bay swimmers will now launch from new starting blocks in a deeper area of the pool and turn around at a new moveable wall. The change also allows more meets to be held at home.
A new, moveable wall installed in the high school pool this week will allow the high school swim team to once again host swim meets. Due to new safety regulations that prohibit swimmers from launching from the pool deck in water less than 4-feet deep, high school swimmers will now launch from starting blocks in a deeper area of the pool and swim perpendicular to the previous racing lanes. Because of the longer pool length, the end of the standard 25-yard swimming lane will now be defined by a moveable wall, better known as a bulkhead, that was installed Tuesday near the south end of the pool. The bulkhead is expected to be anchored to the pool wall prior to the girls' next home meet on Tuesday. Now, Whitefish Bay swimmers will be launching…
