The girls' varsity basketball team is having a wonderful season, rarely losing any games and posting a 21-3 overall record. The boys' team, however, is facing a rebuild, according to their coach Mr. Grimm. I had the chance to sit down and talk to Mr. Grimm where he told me that the boys learned a lot of lessons this year yet the coaches are still looking for consistency. Mr. Grimm explained to me that Slinger has a young team compared to the other teams they play against, and while other teams have multiple seniors starting the game Slinger has one senior starting.


The boys’ team overall record is 5-17 and their conference record is 3-15. The team won a big victory early on in the season against Whitefish Bay, which was a big highlight to the season. They’ve also had close games against West Bend East, Cedarburg, West Bend West, and Hartford.


This Thursday, February 28th, the Lady Owls face Beaver Dam in playoff competition.  Good luck everyone!

Good afternoon(if it’s not afternoon for you, it’s afternoon for somebody elsewhere) Slinger High. Today I will discuss the concluding results of this years Slinger Cross Country, lead by Mr. Strand.


As of the result of the Cross Country for Males, they had multiple invitational wins involving our home meet known as the Owl Invitational. Slinger Boys Cross Country earned third in conference, with 5 selected runners for all-conference. The all conference runners included: Cael Grotenhuis, Noah Jagielski, Aaron Simays, Tyler Ott, and Evan Sievers. The boys also placed first at the Sectional Championship in Manitowoc. Last but not least, they placed 11th at State with the best team finish in school history.


As of the result for the Cross Country for the girls, they won the Owl Invitational  as well. Of the many runners, two were selected for the all conference team: Makaila Groves and Paige Fassbender. The Girls also took third at sectionals and the top two teams made it to State. They were defeated by West Bend West by 5 more points. Makaila Groves was the sole member of the girls team to qualify for State, and was observed to be the “Lord of Haste” from Washington County in the State meet.


This concludes 2018’s Cross Country results for Slinger. Have yourself a stellar day.

Girls Golf began to close with the North Shore Conference for both the JV and Varsity teams on September 17th and 18th. Slinger placed 3rd in the JV Conference even though all team members had began golfing only 14 months before. This is only the second year of Girls Golf at Slinger High School so this was a great accomplishment. One of the golfers placed individually as well. There was also a scramble a couple days later for golfers at Hartford which was the last time playing. The banquet for the team took place at the Mineshaft on October 11th where the girls had one last get together.
