STATELINE NEWS -- Brea Edwards has enjoyed the spotlight during most of her athletic career. However, the stage will be much bigger and brighter the next two years.

The 2011 Hononegah High School graduate recently began workouts at her new collegiate basketball home, Middle Tennessee State University, located in Murfreesboro, Tennessee southeast of Nashville.

WHITEWATER -- Paul Foster enjoyed a small bite of college football as a freshman in 2013, getting into UW-Whitewater’s season opener.

However, the Janesville Craig alumnus and 6-foot-2, 220-pound linebacker is enjoying the entire smorgasbord this fall for the defending NCAA Division III national champions.

“It’s a lot more fun when you’re playing,” Foster said. “There’s more stress and pressure (to perform), but it’s all worth it when you’re out there. It’s about proving something to yourself and to your coaches.”

No. 1 Warhawks to be featured on ESPN’s ‘GameDay’

WHITEWATER -- The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater football team and the city of Whitewater will be in the spotlight Saturday on ESPN’s “College GameDay,” a weekly national college football show that averages over 1 million viewers per episode between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m.

The segment, which was compiled Tuesday and Wednesday on campus and around the city, is tentatively scheduled to air at about 9 a.m. senior national columnist Gene Wojciechowski spoke with UW-Whitewater head coach Lance Leipold, senior defensive back Brady Grayvold and Athletic Director Amy Edmonds for the piece. ESPN’s crew also collected video footage from the campus and community.

Leipold posted his 100th career victory last Saturday in his 106th game to become the fastest head coach in NCAA history to reach triple digits in wins. His achievement received national attention after the game and will be covered later this week in Sports Illustrated and by the Associated Press.

The No. 1 Warhawks, 3-0 in Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Association play and 6-0 overall, host UW-Oshkosh at 1 p.m. for its homecoming game.

Most of the 224 qualifying teams in seven divisions kick off the 2014 WIAA state football playoffs Friday across the Badger State, including all of the Stateline area participants.

Here is the schedule and a few notes about all of the opening-round matchups.

Division 1

• Janesville Craig (6-2) earned a sixth seed and a long bus ride to the southern shore of Lake Winnebago, where the Cougars face third-seeded Fond du Lac (8-1), which finished second to Oshkosh North in the Wisconsin Valley Association South. The Cougars are making their first postseason trip since 2008 and 12th overall, while the Cardinals qualified for a second straight year and 13th in school history.

East Troy and Burlington know about expectations and the pressure that goes with them, and the top two girls volleyball teams in the Stateline area are ready for the challenges again.

WIAA postseason competitions begin for Divisions 2-4 on Tuesday, Oct. 21, and Division 1 squads join the fray Thursday, Oct. 23.

Coach Jeremy Weis’ defending D-2 champion Trojans aren’t as mighty as the contingent that registered a 44-0 mark last year, which included victories over numerous D-1 powers.

High school football playoff fever begins

The 39th rendition of the WIAA football playoffs begins with Level 1 contests Friday and Saturday, Oct. 24 and Oct. 25.

And the Stateline area will be well represented, especially in the four largest divisions. First-round pairings were scheduled to be announced this Saturday afternoon (Oct. 18).

Here is a look at the area qualifiers.

Postseason to begin in golf, tennis and soccer

Fans know that when the leaves start turning, postseason action isn’t far behind for high school fall sports teams.

WIAA girls golf playoff competition kicked off with regional tournaments Wednesday and Thursday (Milton).

Sectional golf events will be this coming Monday through Wednesday.

Milton High School hopes to make its third appearance in the WIAA girls state golf team tournament in four years after falling short of making the Division 1 field last fall.

The Red Hawks and other Stateline area squads hit the postseason trail starting Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 1 and Oct. 2.

The other 11 regional events are scheduled Oct. 1, while the Milton Regional will be Oct. 2 at the Red Hawks’ home layout, Oak Ridge Golf Course.

Senior Maddie McCue and junior CheyAnn Knudsen qualified as individuals in 2013, shooting two-day totals of 158 and 162, and hope to carry sixth-ranked Milton back to Madison’s University Ridge again as a team.

The Red Hawks finished only one stroke behind mighty Edgewood in the Badger Conference meet to end the regular season. Milton placed second in 2011 and fourth in 2012 at state, and freshman Mia Seeman and sophomore Leah Foster will be counted on to help them make a return visit.

The regional field also features honorable mention Janesville Parker, Janesville Craig, Beloit Memorial, Badger and Elkhorn.

Parker, behind senior standout Kailey McDade, also should contend for a spot in the sectional that the Vikings will host at Riverside Golf Course the following week.

Meanwhile, Edgerton and Beloit Turner will participate in the Edgewood Regional in Division 2 competition at Yahara Hills. The Crusaders have won three straight and 10 of the 11 Division 2 championships ever held, not to mention the last two single-class tourneys in 2001-’02.

The top teams and individual advancers from that event will play at Trapper’s Turn in the Wisconsin Dells Sectional.
