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.

The overall school district takes second place among 33 K-12 school districts.
Whitefish Bay has received a lot of great press in the last year, with Money Magazine and Business Journals listing the village as among the top communities to live. This week, Whitefish Bay High School was splashed across the front page of Milwaukee magazine, with a photo of the students decked out in their Blue Dukes spirit gear. The magazine has already been mailed to subscribers and will hit newsstands March 19. The cover story declared Whitefish Bay as the top-scoring high school in the five-county Milwaukee area. The rankings were based on ACT, WKCE and Advanced Placement test results. The school's average ACT score of 26.6, the highest score among Wisconsin public schools last year, didn't hurt. Nor did the innovative engineering …

Senior Maggie Anderson took second in the individual competition Friday night.
The Whitefish Bay gymnastics team was behind on points and a repeat state title looked unlikely when senior Maggie Anderson found herself unable to vault. During her practice runs, Anderson, the team's top gymnast, would make it halfway down the runway and then stop without ever reaching the vault. But, with a pep talk from coach Mary Liniewski, Anderson stuck a 9.2 to deliver the team's second state title in a row at the WIAA state meet in Wisconsin Rapids Saturday. The third title is just as sweet for Anderson, who is going on to UW-Stout in the fall, where she will continue with gymnastics. She said she couldn't be more proud of her teammates. "I'm really excited," she said. "I don't even think it has hit me yet." The team won the …
