Will the Sabers Savor a Trip to State? A Preview of Boys Sectional Five

Franklin, Kenosha Bradford, Kenosha Tremper, Muskego, New Berlin United, South Milwaukee

New Berlin United defeated Franklin in three on its way to the state championship.

  • Franklin The Sabers field a very strong team with much experience. Seniors John Jablonowski and Riley Stone were first-team Southeast all-conference last season. Jablonowski was also honorable mention all-state. Senior Nick Romanowski and junior Steven Fons were honorable mention.
  • Kenosha Bradford Seniors Dustin Day and Kris Sexton were honorable mention Southeast all-conference last season.
  • Kenosha Tremper Returning starters include senior middle Brian Quinn, who was honorable mention Southeast all-conference last season, as well as junior setter Adam Landgraf, junior outside Jay Trimmer and junior opposite Isaac Quinn. For more details about the team, be sure to check out their website.
  • Muskego Senior Sam Benson was second-team Southeast all-conference in 2009 and senior Taylor Nordstrom was honorable mention.
  • New Berlin United They graduated Jeremy Dejno and several other high-profile seniors, but they return some big middles from the state championship team. Junior middle Nick Olson had 159 kills last season and senior middle Mike Beeler had 146 kills. Both Olson and junior outside Matt Nieberle was on the West Allis Lightning 16 team that won a national title in Austin last month.
  • South Milwaukee We've got nothing. Can anyone provide insight on this team? Thanks in advance.

Franklin over New Berlin United in five and the fifth will go 19-17.

Tomorrow: Boys Sectional Six
