The dunk tank funds are helping go toward new scoreboards for two fields.
A dunk tank at Brookfield East on Tuesday served as part of a fundraiser toward new scoreboards at the football and soccer fields. Teacher Noah Kaufman — dressed in tie and vest — agreed to sit in and was generous with his time under water.
The longtime supporter of Brookfield East athletics was honored Tuesday, and his family was on hand for the event.
Brookfield East “superfan” Santo Mirasola, who passed away on March 12 at age 77, was honored Tuesday night by the high school’s athletic department. Mirasola had attended almost 400 events at the school over the last decade, and with his wife Pat was a supervisor for soccer, football, basketball, volleyball, track and field and wrestling, said athletic director Cale Vogel. During halftime of the Brookfield Central-Brookfield East girls soccer game, Vogel presented a plaque to the family that will hang at the entrance to the soccer field.

Brookfield Central senior Sarah Fotsch did work on both ends of the pitch in the intracity girls soccer matchup on Tuesday.
If her play hadn’t said enough, the smile across Sarah Fotsch’s face did. “I’ve been waiting four years to beat East,” said the Brookfield Central senior. Fotsch scored what would prove to be the game-winning goal and anchored the Lancers’ defense in a 2-0 shutout of the Spartans on Tuesday at Brookfield East. Central (7-1-2 overall, 2-1-1 in the Greater Metro Conference) had not topped their crosstown rivals during Fotsch’s high school career but won convincingly Tuesday. Fotsch and fellow defender Josie Nordling scored on headers and East (5-4-0, 3-1-0 Greater Metro) never put Central goalkeeper Rachel Oleson under any duress. “Overall, I didn’t think we defended well,” said East coach Matt Schroeder. “We weren’t able to match their …
