MHS has won the prestigious WSN Cup for the first time.
The Cardinals won the large school division. MHS finished third, behind Hartland Arrowhead and Sun Prairie, in 2017-18. MHS finished second to Hartland Arrowhead in the WSN Cup the previous four years.
The WSN Cup is an award that honors schools that provide and achieve success in many of the WIAA-sponsored sports. It has been awarded since the 2007-2008 school year.
MHS finished with 762.36 points. Sun Prairie was second with 748 points. Muskego finished third, followed by Hartland Arrowhead and Kimberly. Hartland Arrowhead had won the previous 11 WSN Cups in the large school division.
MHS scored at least 200 points in the fall, spring and winter. The Cardinals won the WIAA Division 1 state championship in girls swimming and diving. They also had runner-up finishes in boys cross country, girls golf, boys swimming and diving, girls basketball and boys golf. The boys lacrosse team also finished second in state, although because that isn't a WIAA-sanctioned sport it wasn't counted in the final results.
"This is such a team effort,'' MHS athletic director Bob Joers said. "To be the best athletic program in the state is truly amazing and it's a credit to our students, coaching staff and everyone else involved in the program.''
