The Indians finished third in the Watertown Invitational on Sept. 15.
Falls, which swept Wauwatosa East in three Sept. 11, took its 3-0 Greater Metro Conference record into a critical GMC dual Sept. 18 against powerful Divine Savior Holy Angels (see MenomoneeFallsNOW.com for details).
"We'll be in the little Dasher Dome; it ought to be interesting," Indians coach J.C. Bruns said.
The West Bend Sprawl will be held this Friday and Saturday.
At Watertown, the Indians lost a three-game match to eventual champion Neenah in the semifinals for their only loss of the day. Bruns said the team played well the first game but then got caught up in too many mistakes in losing the next two.
Falls beat WIAA sectional rival Watertown twice, which is key to later tournament play, Bruns said.
All-stater Simone Lee led the way for the Indians.
"She was on fire all day," Bruns said, "especially in the Neenah match. We are developing other hitters in progression, but we do know who feeds us."

After a critical North Shore Conference win over Milwaukee Lutheran on Sept. 11, the Warhawks took fifth in the New Berlin West tournament Sept. 14 and 15.
The Warhawks fell to conference foe Nicolet, 4 to 1, in a Sept. 14 quarterfinal with the lone goal scored by Preston Yahr (assist Nate Bronikowski).
They bounced back Sept. 15 to pound South Milwaukee, 4-1, with Dan Hougard scoring all four of the Warhawks' goals (two assists by Paul Ciszewski and others by Nate Bronikowski and Steve Thom).
The fifth-place match was a physical affair with the Warhawks beating Wauwatosa East, 2-1, on goals by Austin Klopatek (assist by Ciszewski) and Collin French (assist by Hougard). This despite playing the final 12 minutes a man down as one of the Warhawks defenders received a second yellow card.
The 1-0 victory over Lutheran was huge as the Red Knights were coming into the game off a victory over Whitefish Bay the week before.
Germantown played a solid game, controlling the tempo, while winning on a goal by Ciszewski in the 46th minute.
Tom Beine, Hougard and Ciszewski did an outstanding job in controlling the offensive half of the field for the Warhawks.
Germantown put 10 shots on goal while on the defensive side Nate Bronikowski, Zack Knudson, JP Rodriguez and Jacob Agbius limited the Red Knights to only three shots on goal, all of which were saved by senior goalkeeper Brandon Wein.
Germantown's overall record stands at 10-3, including 3-1 in NSC play.

Sophomore Megan Paule finished her 2012 season by finishing fifth overall at the Angel Invite held at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside on Sept. 15.
Paule finished with a time of 15 minutes, 32 seconds on the 4,000-meter course as the Indians struggled to a 15th-place finish out of 33 teams.
"We had too many distractions, scheduling situations and not enough positive energy this week," Indians coach Paul Schramka said. "I did not do a very good job this week preparing the ladies. I have to do a better job preparing them."
Captain Jamie Ertl (17:12) and sophomore Juliette Schefelker (also 17:12) finished as the top three runners.
"There was an awful lot of pressure on Ertl, who usually is our number five, to push to be our number two on Saturday, but I thought she stepped up again to fill a void," Schramka said.
Others praised for their efforts included varsity newcomer Megan Rohde and freshman Maddie Thomas, who led the junior varsity. Falls will be at the Muskego Invitational on Saturday.
Germantown girls cross country
The Germantown varsity girls were seventh and the junior varsity fourth in the Waukesha South Invitational on Sept. 15.
"We have been struggling with illness and nagging injuries and were missing several key components for both races," coach Nancy Pietrowiak said. "Right now there is no star runner as in past years, but the girls are working together to pack well and improve as a team."
"The Minooka Park course is a challenging one, with long up and down stretches, a great course for the runners, but with limited access for spectators and encouragement. This meet pushes the runners to utilize their mental strength to push through the tough sections."
Leading the way for the varsity were freshman Brianna Klopfer in 17 minutes, 17 seconds (27th place), Andrea Brown (17:28-31st), Jennifer Ellis (17:35-34th), Emily Baus (18:01-48th), Hannah Knapp (18:08-51st), Kimmie Karin (18:11-52nd) and Paige Kutzora (18:18-54th).
