Arrowhead Prepares for Homecoming Match-up vs. CMH


In the 2014 high school varsity football season, when the Warhawks matched up against the Crusaders, the game ended with a 24-14 victory at Catholic Memorial.

Last year, Arrowhead also lost to Mukwonago during the night of Hawkfest on September 9, 2014.

This year, Hawkfest is on September 25th–the same day as the homecoming game–and it’s a rematch between AHS and CMH at Taraska Stadium at 7:00 pm.

The football game against Catholic Memorial is the fourth time Arrowhead has faced a top five team so far in 2015. They have beaten #1 Homestead, #3 Waukesha West and #4 Mukwonago.

At home on August 20th, Arrowhead defeated Homestead, 28-14.

Two weeks ago, Arrowhead played at home and defeated Waukesha West in a blowout, 35-7.

Arrowhead then come back against Mukwonago, with two late touchdowns on September 18th, to win 24-13.

Aaron Custer, a junior who plays left-tackle on the team says they’ve had a tough schedule.

“The coaches are very honest about who we are playing against, but we are just doing what we always do. We are practicing hard, we are doing little things right, we got


to make sure our form is perfect, and you just got to out work them. That’s the main thing. It is just the matter of wearing them down,” Custer says.

Since last week’s win at Mukwonago, the AHS football team has been practicing for their match-up with Catholic Memorial.

“Well, they are in our conference, it’s a big game. They are a pretty physical team,” junior right-tackle Alex Nannetti said. “We are preparing for their defensive schemes. We are worrying about ourselves more and how we are going to play against them.”

“The fans will play a part on how we play,” Nannetti says, “Their energy will help us be more focused on our goal.”

Since being under the coaching of Greg Malling, Arrowhead has been to state every year since 2012 and have won two out of the last three state championships. Alex Nannetti believes coach Malling is a great coach.

“Coach Malling really cares about his players and is a great coach. He wants to do well under the lights and is just a great coach overall.”
