    Girls Soccer beats out Oregon to win back-to-back state title

    October 2, 2018

    After winning the WIAA Division I State Championship in the year of 2017, many were shocked to hear that the Brookfield Central Girls Soccer program (BCGS) would be competing in Division II the following year. Not only did this bring a new target on the team’s back, but the girls had to play against an entirely new group of high schools. Current...

    Students immerse in French culture for school trip

    Wheels roll against cobblestone as students drag their luggage down the streets of Paris, ready to begin their two week stay in France. Among this group are fourteen BC girls. Some, like Sukna Sawah (‘19), are looking forward to the “best two weeks ever.” Others, like Libby Gantz (‘20), are expecting an experience of a whole different culture...

    Taylor Canitz ('19) and Amy Keane ('19) look out over a view of the Mediterranean Sea while on a boat ride in Cassis. This marked the second of three consecutive beach days after the family stay, the first being at the Pont du Gard. The students enjoyed fourty-five minutes out at sea. Those brave enough to sit at the rail were sprayed with cold, Mediterranean water during the rockier portions of the ride.

    September 24, 2018

    Every year, the Lancerettes biggest goal of the summer season is to qualify for Disney! A lot of people don’t realize that we dance almost year round since we start practice in June. We practice Monday through Thursday, from 8-11. It takes so much work to create our routines, and it certainly isn’t as easy as it looks when they’re done. This season...

    Memories made in China; student loses hat to Great Wall

    Hot. Humid. Amazing. Nervous. Exciting. These are the words students used to describe their expectations going into the 2018 Chinese trip. And these — the Great Wall of China, exploring the cities, monuments, historical landmarks, food — were what they were looking forward to. The students spent around a week in China, starting off in Beijing for...

    Hannah Thomas (‘20) and Maggie Conlon (‘20) teach a little girl how to pose with the two finger peace sign. Qiu Qiu, the little girl pictured, posed with other BC students as well. Interactions with people in China was a plus during the trip.

    Girls lacrosse might be new to Brookfield Central, but it certainly isn’t new to the players. These girls have been participating in the lacrosse program through the city’s Parks and Recreation department for a few years now, and have finally had their sport integrated into the Elmbrook School District. The girls teams are a culmination of both...

    This year’s Boys Varsity Tennis has been on a great path to a spectacular season. The team started their season in April, and even though they have had a rough start due to the snowy weather, they have been able to pull off amazing wins versus tough competition like Slinger High School (4-3), Kenosha Tremper High School (6-1), Waukesha South High...
