Golfing trio aims for fantastic finish

Andy Bernard, the insecure, quirky salesman from “The Office” once said, “I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good old days before you’ve actually left them.”

Emmet Herb, Joey Levin and Brady Thomas — three senior standouts for Middleton’s boys golf team — seem wise beyond their years and fully understand this premise.

Sitting at a table overlooking beautiful Pleasant View Golf Course last week, the trio fondly recalls golfing together as juniors, nearly a decade ago. They all agree that when one has a girl problem, it becomes a team effort to solve the puzzle.

And they good-naturedly needle Herb for having one of the state’s most passionate and proud mothers in Annie.

“Four years with these guys. I mean, for me, that’s been awesome,” Levin said. “I’m just trying to take in every moment because every moment could be our last.”

And perhaps their best.

Thomas, MHS golfers tearing it up

They call it the ‘Old Man’ trophy.

It features an elderly gentleman, leaning on his golf club, and it’s perched atop a trophy that goes to the winner of the Morgan Stanley Shootout.

More often than not, that ‘Old Man’ trophy has been housed in Middleton, and this year was no different.

The Cardinals fired a two-day total of 600 and won the Shootout that was held last Wednesday and Thursday at University Ridge Golf Course. Madison Edgewood was an extremely distant second with 626 at the 12-team tournament.

‘This is probably one of the best tournaments to win,” Middleton senior Brady Thomas said. “It’s at the state venue and it’s against some of the top teams in the area, so we all want to beat each other.”

Middleton has now won this event 14 of 25 years, and the Cardinals’ score of 600 was the third-lowest in tournament history.

Softball Cards closing strong

The WIAA Division 1 softball seeding meetings are on May 18.

So every game — and every win — from here on out is vital for Middleton.

The Cardinals took a big step in the right direction last week, winning four of five games. Middleton improved to 13-6 overall and 9-5 in the Big Eight Conference.

With 14 teams in its sectional, Middleton will be hoping for a top-four seed, which would give the Cardinals two home games.

“There are a lot of good teams in the sectional again this year, and if you aren’t playing well you certainly can get beat,” Middleton coach Perry Hibner said. “We want to make sure we are playing our best softball of the season over these next few weeks.”

Baseball Cards enter critical stretch

There’s a logjam at the top.

And Middleton’s baseball team hopes to emerge from the gridlock unscathed.

With two weeks remaining, Middleton, Sun Prairie and Janesville Craig are tied for the Big Eight Conference lead with 10-2 records. Middleton travels to Sun Prairie Thursday at 5 p.m. in a game certain to start separating the leaders.

Middleton held a one-game lead in the conference at the beginning of last week. But in between a pair of wins, the Cardinals dropped a game to Verona, which created the three-way tie atop the conference.

Sikhism Thrives in the City of Middleton

Every Sunday morning, a stream of local Sikhs flows into the gurudwara on Century Avenue.

Out of the damp spring air they enter a tall, spacious building filled with the warm aromas of sweet and savory foods and spiced tea. The melodic songs that are a central part of their worship greet their ears. Their eyes are met by generations of people - some who came to Wisconsin from India, some who were born here - who all sit on the floor, regardless of economic or social rank, as equals, to worship a universal and unifying God.

It is a crossroads of poetry, culture and faith.

Upstairs, Paramjit Singh, the temple’s priest, sits on an altar behind the Sri Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh holy book. The hymns and poems within it, which are meant to be sung - by themselves or accompanied by the rhythmic thumping of drums and the bellowing of a harmonium – fill an upstairs sanctuary decorated by a dazzling array of colors.

Golfers surge to No. 1

HARTLAND — It doesn’t seem to matter what course you put Middleton’s boys golf team on these days.

It doesn’t matter what city you drop these Cardinals in.

The results have been the same — and they’ve been downright spectacular.

Middleton won three major invitationals in the past week and also won a Big Eight Conference triangular.

The Cardinals notched arguably their biggest win of the season Tuesday, when they finished first at The Legends Club Invitational held at The Legend at Bristlecone.

Middleton shot a 304 team score and edged defending state champion Hartland Arrowhead, which shot 307. Marquette was third at 313, while Madison Edgewood (319) and Green Bay Notre Dame (324) rounded out the top five at the 18-team event.

The big week helped Middleton jump to No. 1 in the latest Golf Coaches Association of Wisconsin poll.
