Boys basketball team has high hopes

Tyree Eady, Middleton’s all-time leading scorer, has taken his immense skills to North Dakota State.

Storm Murphy, the Cardinals’ all-time leader in assists and a 1,000-point scorer himself, is now playing collegiately at Wofford.

Most programs take a dramatic nosedive after losing two Division 1 athletes. But Middleton is expecting to be one of the area’s surprise teams this winter.

The Cardinals have a handful of solid returnees and a group of talented newcomers ready to make their mark. And when Middleton opens its season Nov. 30 against Madison Memorial, it’s optimistic big things await.

“Our depth, physical strength and skill development from the end of last season until now has been very good,” Middleton coach Kevin Bavery said. “We have a good inside-outside mix and overall team size and length. This also has the potential to be one of the best shooting teams we’ve had.”

Hockey Cards thinking big

It’s been almost four full years now since the ultra-successful Libert brothers — Steve and Tony — resigned as Middleton’s hockey coaches.

In their 21 years together, the Liberts took a program from ground zero to great heights, including three trips to the state tournament.

Today, the Cardinals are still looking to recapture some of that magic.

Steffon Walby, who took over as Middleton’s coach in Jan., 2014, has compiled a stellar 65-21-3 record in his three-plus years as the Cardinals’ boss (.747 winning percentage). But despite some stellar regular seasons, Middleton has failed to reach the state tournament under Walby.

Middleton began its new season last Saturday with a 2-1 over Oregon. And Walby and the Cardinals are hopeful this is the year they can make it to the state tournament.

Girls basketball team hopes to reload

Jeff Kind has never shied away from a challenge.

It’s one of the big reasons Middleton’s girls basketball coach ranks eighth in state history in career victories with a 563-249 record (.693).

It’s also a big reason the Cardinals have become one of the state’s elite programs, reaching the WIAA Division 1 state tournament seven times since 2008 and nine times this century.

But Kind and his Cardinals have an awfully big challenge this year.

Middleton must replace four starters — triplets Bria, Alyssa and Carlee Lemirande, along with Alexis Thomas — that accounted for more than 60.0% of the Cardinals’ points last season. That quartet also helped Middleton go 86-17 and win three Big Eight Conference titles over the last four years.

When Middleton begins its season Friday with a home game against Madison Memorial, it will have several new — albeit gifted — players in its lineup.

Girls swimmers cruise to state title

After completing a thoroughly dominant season, Middleton’s girls swimming and diving team found itself in the unfamiliar role of underdog heading into Saturday’s WIAA Division 1 state swimming and diving championship.

According to a pre-race “mock meet” based on seedings from sectionals, Middleton was tabbed to finish second at the state meet, something that didn’t sit well with the Cardinals.

“Going into this year we did read articles about how we weren’t supposed to win and how we were seeded second by eight points,” sophomore Gabriela Pierobon Mays said. “I think that’s when we turned around and we were like, ‘All right, we’re the underdogs now and we love being underdogs.’ ”

Motivated by that slight, the Cardinals dominated the state meet from start to finish as they rolled to their second consecutive state championship at the UW Natatorium.

Middleton won the meet’s opening swim event, the 200-yard medley relay, and never looked back.

Boys spikers fall in state quarters

MILWAUKEE — Middleton’s boys volleyball team set a goal of "Play on Saturday" for the 2017 season. 

And though the Cardinals came up a match short of reaching that plateau last Friday at the WIAA boys state volleyball tournament, the crop of departing seniors vow to do what they can to help next year's team attain that elusive level.

“What coach said after the match is our seniors from last year, there were four of them in the crowd (Friday),” said senior libero and captain Thomas Robson, a four-year varsity player. “The seniors will be on the underclassmen. We've built that kind of program and we're always going to help each other get to the next level. That's what these seniors will do.”
