Three's company at MHS

The Lemirande sisters felt things slipping away.

Middleton’s girls basketball team was playing Janesville Craig in the 2015 WIAA Division 1 sectional finals. And with the Cardinals in a 48-39 hole early in the fourth quarter, Alyssa Lemirande looked at her sister Bria, then took her tongue and touched it to her nose.

Perhaps the only other person to notice that day was Carlee Lemirande — the third of the Lemirande triplets. But when Alyssa gave the signal, it was “go time.”

“We had a signal to each other that year where if the team was doing bad, we just needed to pick it up and get things done,” Bria Lemirande said. “And so we made up a signal to touch our tongue to our nose.

“And when we made that signal to each other it meant we had to do something. Just get the game moving.”

Maybe it was the signal. Maybe talent simply ruled the day.

Sun Prairie slips past Middleton

SUN PRAIRIE — Kevin Bavery didn’t want to hear about the Big Eight Conference boys basketball race. Bavery didn’t care about postseason seeds.

Middleton’s boys basketball had just watched his team drop a 71-69 decision to Sun Prairie last Friday. And all Bavery cared about was getting his suddenly slumping group back on track.

“I could give a rats (tail) about seeds,” Bavery said. “I don’t care if we’re (seeded) 1 or 18. We just need to be playing our best basketball at tournament time.”

Right now, that certainly not the case.

Middleton dropped its second straight game and suffered its third loss in five outings. Middleton’s four losses have been by a total of 12 points, with its largest defeat being four points

Meet the District 7 City Council Candidates

One thing is certain: The City of Middleton’s seventh aldermanic district will have a new representative on the common council in 2017.

Whether it is John Orlikowski or Dan Ramsey II, both of whom are running for the seat being vacated by mayoral candidate and current District 7 alderman Hans Hilbert, will be up to voters when they head to the polls on April 4.

After their candidacies became official, both Orlikowski and Ramsey II recently took some time to tell the Times-Tribune who they are and why they are running for a seat on the council. While plenty more information about them – and about the contested mayoral race between Hilbert and current District 2 alderman Gurdip Brar – will ensue in the coming months, this provides an early opportunity to get to know the council candidates before they, or their supporters, knock on your door to ask for your vote.

Middleton rebounds, tops Arrowhead

MILWAUKEE — C.J. Fermanich was part of just three regular season losses over the last two years as a Middleton football player.

Each time, though, Fermanich had to wait seven days before getting a chance at redemption.

“Yeah, that’s a long time,” Fermanich said.

Basketball season provides an opportunity to get back on the horse much faster. And that’s just what Fermanich and his Middleton teammates did last weekend.

The Cardinals suffered an 85-81 loss to Big Eight Conference foe Beloit Memorial last Friday. Just 24 hours later, though, the Cardinals erased some of that disappointment with an impressive 85-78 win over Hartland Arrowhead at the Al McGuire Center on the Marquette campus.

Middleton improved to 9-2 overall and is now tied for first place in the league with Madison Memorial at 6-2. Arrowhead, one of the more physically talented teams Middleton will see this year, fell to 7-4.

Lemirande steals the show

FRANKLIN — Bria Lemirande wasn’t familiar with the name Christine Rathke before last Thursday. Now, the two will be forever connected — and that’s a good thing for Lemirande.

Rathke, a former standout at Franklin High School and Southeast Missouri State, was killed by a drunk driver in 2003. Since 2008, the folks at Franklin have held a holiday basketball tournament in Rathke’s honor.

After each tournament concludes, the finest player is given the Christine Rathke Award. On Thursday, that award went to Lemirande, a senior point guard at Middleton High School.

In the championship game of the three-day tournament, Lemirande put on a show. Lemirande scored 30 points — the second-highest total of her sensational Middleton career — and lifted the Cardinals to a 78-71 overtime win over upstart Oshkosh Lourdes.
