The state high school soccer tournaments will remain at Uihlein Soccer Park in Milwaukee for the foreseeable future.

The WIAA Board of Control on Friday approved a five-year extension to the organization's agreement to play the annual tournaments at the facility on Milwaukee's north side, a deal that now runs through the 2019-20 school year.

Uihlein has played host to the tournaments since the 2003-04 school year, when the events left Madison following a 15-year run at Breese Stevens Field.

All 12 state matches under the current set-up – semifinals and finals in four divisions – are played on the FieldTurf at Time Warner Cable Stadium.
Breese Stevens Field also has a synthetic playing surface, recently added during the latest stage of an extensive renovation project at the stadium that opened in 1925.

  • Host and eighth-seeded Madison East doubled up No. 9 seed Lake Geneva Badger 4-2 on a rainy Monday night in the first of 128 WIAA regional semifinals – all the other matches are scheduled for Tuesday as the postseason begins in earnest. Higher-seeded teams went 4-2-0 in Saturday's division 3 and 4 regional quarterfinals.
  • Three teams head into the postseason still unbeaten this year: Sheboygan North (17-0-3) and archrivals Madison West (15-0-5) and Madison Memorial (11-0-7), who are seeded first and second in the WIAA Division 1 Kettle Moraine sectional.
  • Milwaukee Marquette (17-1-2) remained fourth in the Top Drawer Soccer Great Lakes Region rankings, and the Hilltoppers continue to lead Brookfield East (14-2-4) and Whitefish Bay (17-1-2) in the website's Wisconsin rankings. This week's TDS Fab 50 will be released Tuesday, as will the National Soccer Coaches Association of America Top 25 and regional polls.
