With so many activity and athletic groups available at South Milwaukee High School, we have many students involved. We feel it is important that groups and teams or individual students who achieve on a high level are recognized for those efforts. This page is dedicated to that purpose. So, check back periodically to see what's new. We will try to update you on activities and athletics news throughout each of the seasons (fall, winter, spring, summer). As new updates are available, we will archive past reports, so parents and students can still find the information at a later date. Archived reports will be available throughout the current school year.

South Milwaukee Girls Track won their 4th Woodland Conference Relays Championship in a row (all 4 since we moved back to the Woodland Conference in 2009). In honor of that, the Journal Sentinel picked Coach Stan Druckrey's team as their team of the week!
TEAM OF THE WEEK: South Milwaukee. The Rockets didn't play second fiddle this time. After a second-place finish at the Woodland Conference indoor last month, South Milwaukee won the conference relays with 108 points. The team got a state-best performance from senior Micaela Creighton in the long jump (18-6). It also won the long jump, triple jump and 400 relays with the 400 relay of sophomore Chenoa Stuhr and seniors Amber Roepke, Micaela Creighton and Alyx Birmingham winning in 51.21, which ranked 13th on the state honor roll Monday. The Rockets also got a big day from its young distance crew, which took third in the 3,200, 6,400 and distance medley despite having no upperclassmen on the teams (Bristine Fowler, Capri Fowler, Rebecca Heller, Sam Meszaros, and Karina Popek)
Woodland Conference Outdoor at Brown Deer, 3 p.m. Monday: South Milwaukee and New Berlin West are the teams to beat.
