Middleton's Kollasch steps down

Ben Kollasch has had ties to the Middleton soccer program for more than three decades now.

Kollasch watched his four older brothers — Bob, Mike, Tom and Tony — come through the program. Kollasch was later a standout player himself, helping the 1994 Cardinals go 24-1-3 and jump as high as No. 13 in the national rankings.

Kollasch began coaching at MHS in 1996, has been the Cardinals’ head coach since 2013 and has always considered Middleton soccer his second family.

But now, Kollasch has decided to pay more attention to his first family.

Kollasch announced recently that he’s stepping down as the Cardinals’ head coach to spend more time with his own family.

Several MHS football players named all-Big 8

Middleton’s football team enjoyed a terrific season under first-year coach Jason Pertzborn.

The Cardinals went 8-3 overall, finished in a tie for second in the Big Eight Conference and defeated Madison La Follette in the first round of the playoffs.

So, it was no surprise that the talented Cardinals landed 16 spots on the all-Big Eight Conference team.

Senior running back Kallion Buckner and senior offensive lineman Clay Craker were both named first-team all-Big Eight and earned honorable mention all-state honors from the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association. Senior tight end Sam Engler, senior defensive linemen Billy Johnson and Jake Wuebben, and senior linebacker Jake Pavelski all received first-team all-conference honors, as well. Wuebben was also named first-team all-conference as a punter.
