The Menomonee Falls Phoenix have been selected as the Week 3 WSN Team of the Week following a statewide vote on WSN. The team took down Catholic Memorial in a battle of top-ranked squads. The Phoenix were chosen from a strong group of nominees in Week 3. A total of 11,301 votes were cast, as Menomonee Falls' 4,439 votes edged Ellsworth's 4,394 votes.
Menomonee Falls was scheduled to play Sussex Hamilton, but late in the week, it was determined that matchup would not occur. Falls was able to quickly secure a marquee matchup with Catholic Memorial, setting the stage for a #1 versus #1 showdown. Division 2 top-ranked Menomonee Falls controlled things throughout in a 34-7 victory, despite getting out-gained 279-203. The defense recorded three interceptions while holding CMH quarterbacks to 13-of-38 passing. Falls' own quarterback, senior Nate McLean, was outstanding, completing seven-of-14 passes for 112 yards and a score. Tyler Olejniczak ground out 70 yards on the ground, scoring three times.
Remember folks, the only way your favorite team can be named WSN Team of the Week is to vote and share the word. Look for the Week 4 nominees to be posted Monday afternoon.
