The University School varsity football team defeated Racine St. Catherine’s, 30–28, in a Level 2 game of the WIAA Division 3 state tournament playoffs on Thursday, Nov. 19 at Westosha Central High School in Salem. With the win, the team was named regional champions in their final game of the season. The WIAA did not hold a state championship for football this year, with approximately one-third of teams in the state moving football to an alternate spring season next year, so a regional championship became the ultimate goal for teams.
The Wildcats had won by forfeit over Kettle Moraine Lutheran in a Level 1 game of the WIAA Division 3 state tournament playoffs scheduled to be played on Friday, Nov. 13 at USM.
The team ended the season at 4–1 and finished at 2–1 in the Metro Classic Conference.
