Go Rockets! Softball Regional Final, Track Sectional Today

Softball, track and more … our Rockets are really taking off.

From the South Milwaukee School District …


The Rockets take on Oak Creek today at 4:30pm at Oak Creek East Middle School in the WIAA Regional Final. The Rockets advanced to the game by virtue of their 6-0 WIAA Regional Semifinal win on Wednesday v. Racine Park. A special note is included down below about Senior Abby Mahsem who was not only named the Journal Sentinel Softball Player of the Week, she was also selected as a Senior All-Star and will be playing in the Dells on June 16th in the Wisconsin Fastpitch Softball Coaches Association Senior All-Star Game! Congratulations Abby and GO ROCKETS!


PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Abby Mahsem, South Milwaukee. The Rockets senior pitcher/shortstop played a large role in the team’s strong finish to the regular season.

She tossed a complete game with five strikeouts and scored two runs as South Milwaukee (15-7) beat Greenfield, 3-1, May 18 to hand the Hawks their first loss of the season. The next day she pitched two innings of relief and went 2 for 3 with three runs in an 8-6 victory over Cudahy. On Wednesday she struck out 10 in a 4-3 victory over Greendale.

Entering the Rockets’ game with Oak Creek on Friday, Mahsem led South Milwaukee with a .533 batting average and 34 RBI and shared the team lead with six home runs.
