For the 1st time in the 14 year history of FLASH, 3 FLASH freshmen have been named to the "All-FLASH" team in the same season. Since the inception of FLASH in 2005, there had only been 3 freshmen ever named to the "All-FLASH" team but this season, there were several players who deserved consideration and Sam Groblewski, Alex Brion and Noah Ferguson were selected as a result of their outstanding performances during the 2018 FLASH season. Groblewski dished out 134 assists which is the most ever by a FLASH freshmen and the 4th most by any FLASH player in a single season. His 5.2 assist per game average made him only the 2nd player in 14 years/23 seasons of FLASH to average 5 or more assists per game. Sam made everyone around him better which is what all good point guards do and between his assists and his own scoring, he accounted for approximately 1/3 of the FLASH offense in 2018. Brion led the team in scoring with 382 points and a 13.2 point per game average--most ever by a FLASH freshman. His 382 points are the 9th most in single season by any FLASH player and his 62 "3's" made him only the 3rd player in FLASH history to hit 60 or more "3's" in a season. He also scored in double figures 22 times (6th most in FLASH history). Ferguson scored 319 points (17th in FLASH history) and scored in double figures 19 times (8th in FLASH history) but also made his mark as a rebounder--possibly the best offensive rebounder to have played for FLASH. Congratulations to Sam, Alex and Noah on their well deserved recognition.

FLASH senior Nathan Schaefer and his Whitnall teammates played at conference leading Brown Deer on 2/4. Having played Brown Deer very tough back in November when Schaefer scored 25 points, he was the obvious focus of the Brown Deer defense. Whitnall played very well in the 1st half and led 29-27 at halftime as Schaefer scored 12 points. On the opening possession of the 3rd quarter, Schaefer's drive to the basket was clearly a goaltend violation that was amazingly missed by the officials and that play triggered a 15-0 run by Brown Deer and Whitnall trailed 47-35 at the end of the quarter. Schaefer led a spirited comeback by scoring 7 points in the first 3 minutes of the 4th quarter but the comeback fell just short as Whitnall lost 58-56.

Beres, who started at point guard for the MUHS varsity as a sophomore before his season was cut short by illness, returned this year as a junior in the same role and was one of the team's most consistent peformers. Beres, who has also been a 3 year starter for FLASH, has the rare ability to both play with tremendous intensity but yet at the same time can be a calming influence on the court when it is most needed. Beres led the Hilltoppers in both assists and steals and was fourth on the team in scoring. Congratulations Tom on a great season and accomplishment.

FLASH junior Tom Beres came up big in the 4th quarter against Sussex Hamilton on 1/24 to help Marquette High to a much needed 60-49 win. Marquette, with a young roster, had struggled out of the gate this season and entered the game with an uncharacteristic 2-9 record while Hamilton came in at 7-7. Beres, who started out the game with a quick assist, followed by a steal and basket, helped get Marquette out to an early lead. The Hilltoppers maintained their lead all game long and with about 5 minutes to play had built a 12 point lead against the visiting Chargers. Despite having most of the 4th quarter yet to play, Hamilton went to a strategy of immediately fouling and sending the Hilltoppers to the FT line. Unfortunately, several front end misses allowed Hamilton to get the ball back and score quickly, cutting into the Marquette lead. With 2 minutes left to play, the Marquette lead had been reduced to 5. Beres, who finished the game with 13 points, was 9-12 from the free throw line and went 7-8 in the 4th quarter, including 6-6 in the final 2 minutes. Great job Tom.

(posted 7-24-10) Post Season Accolades...."Mueller and Holschuh recognized by Wissports.net"
FLASH players AJ Mueller and Robert Holschuh have both been recognized by Wissports.net as being among the top 50 players in Wisconsin for the graduating class of 2013. Each year, wissports .net selects what it considers to be the top players in each graduating class and lists them on its website both for recognition and recruiting purposes. Wissports .net is widely respected throughout the state for its coverage of both high school and club sports and inclusion on their player lists is considered quite an honor. Players can gain recognition as a result of both their high school basketball and club basketball seasons. As players move through their high school programs and perform at a level that creates recognition, they can make a name for themselves. However, being freshman this past year, much of the recognition for this group would come from either an outstanding freshman year on the varsity level at their respective high schools or from performing at a high level in big tournaments at the club level. For both Mueller, ranked #17, and Holschuh, much of their recognition came from their outstanding performances in the Hugh Roberts Classic in Wisconsin Dells in May. CONGRATULATIONS to both AJ and Robert for their well deserved recognition.
