St. Catherine's High School Buy tickets online for St. Catherine's High School Football (0-0 Metro Classic Conference, 1-0 Overall) Friday night the Angels football team began their season in spectacular fashion as they were able to defeat cross town rival Racine Lutheran 36-6. The Angels were able to get on the scoreboard early and often as they scored all 36 of their points in the first half. Lamont Hamilton led the offensive attack as he hauled in 4 catches for 144 yards and 3 touchdowns. Two of those touchdowns came on passes from Mariano Talamantanez as the pair would hook up on touchdowns of 8 yards and 58 yards. Hamilton’s 3rd touchdown came from Eddie Vinson on a 42 yard touchdown. Talamantez ended the game going 5-9 with 121 yards passing and 2 touchdowns. Isaiah Taylor led the ground attack as he rushed for 49 yards on 7 carries and a touchdown. Isaac Cantu led the team on the defensive side of the ball as he had 2 interceptions and a fumble recovery that he returned for a touchdown.

Girls Tennis (0-0 Metro Classic Conference, 0-4 Overall) Wednesday the St. Catherine’s/Lutheran girls tennis team kicked off their season as they headed to Greenfield High School to face off in two matches against Cudahy/St. Francis and Whitnall. The team performed extremely well for their first matches of the year but unfortunately fell to Cudahy/St. Francis 4-3 and Whitnall 5-1. Nylah Kraus was the high performer of the day as she won both of her matches. In her first match against Cudahy/St. Francis she won 6-3, 4-6, 10-7 and in her second match against Whitnall she won 6-3, 6-4. Also earning victories on the day were the doubles teams of Elana Gaither/Isabella Lillo (6-0, 6-2 vs. Cudahy/St. Francis) and Liliana Hoffman/Michelle Perez (6-2, 3-6, 10-8 vs. Cudahy/St. Francis). Thursday the St. Catherine’s/Lutheran tennis team was back at it as they traveled to South MIlwaukee to again face off in two matches. The team again performed extremely well and improved their game from the day before but unfortunately fell to Grafton 5-2 and 4-3 to South Milwaukee. The doubles teams of Isabella Lillo/Elana Gaither and Liliana Hoffman/Dayjia Brown-Fraizer were the high performers of the day as they were both able to win their matches against Grafton and South Milwaukee. Against Grafton Lillo/Gaither won 6-2, 6-2 and Hoffman/Brown-Frazier won in 3 sets. Against South Milwaukee Lillo/Gaither won 6-1, 6-2 and Hoffman/Brown-Fraizer won 6-1, 7-4. Claire Mathew was also able to come away with a victory against South Milwaukee as she defeated her opponent 6-0, 6-0.

Girls Golf Thursday Anna Tiedeman was the lone St. Catherine’s/Lutheran golfer to be represented at the Slinger Owl invitational at Washington County Golf Course. Playing the same course for the 2nd time in the past week proved to be extremely beneficial to Anna as she improved her score by 10 strokes and improved in all facets of her game.
