The Wisconsin Masonic Soccer All-Star Games are headed to UW-Whitewater this summer.
The 21st annual games, featuring the state's top senior prep players, are scheduled for July 28 at Fiskum Field. The girls game kicks off at 11 a.m., followed by the boys game at 1 p.m. Tickets are $10 and are good for both matches.
Last year, the games were at Middleton High School after a three-year run at Marian College in Fond du Lac. Previous sites for the matches include the University of Wisconsin's McClimon Complex, West Bend High School, the Bavarian Inn in Glendale, Neenah High School and Carthage College in Kenosha.
Coaches can nominate players for the boys game until Sunday and girls players until April 30.
- Southern Door recently canceled its girls soccer season because of a lack of players. Athletic director Joey Charles told the Door County Advocate that just 10 players had committed to playing for the Eagles, who had a 13-player roster last spring. The school postponed its first few scheduled matches in hopes of bolstering the roster, but when that didn't happen, Charles said the only choice was to cancel the season. He told the newspaper that the Brussels school, which has an enrollment of 406 according to the WIAA, hopes to field a team in 2013.
- There aren't any state teams in the national rankings this week. Milwaukee DSHA (2-0-0) is fifth and Mequon Homestead (4-0-0) is eighth in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America Region IV poll, while ESPNHS ranks DSHA, Homestead and Brookfield Central (4-0-0) as the top three teams in Wisconsin.
