  • Tautges Named Outstanding Educator

    Physics Teacher Mr. Tony Tautges has been selected for the University of Chicago’s Outstanding Educator Award. Each year, the University invites entering first-year students to nominate an educator who has influenced them, challenged them, or helped them along the path toward intellectual growth. The University receives hundreds of letters back from students inspired by teachers who have changed the course of their lives, who taught them to reimagine texts, to delve deeper into problem-solving, and to think beyond the borders of the classroom in the pursuit of their own education. Mr. Tautges was nominated for this honor by his former student, Jonathan Caldwell.

    Pair Qualifies for State CC Meet

    Racing with intensity and pure grit, the Whippet boys and girls took to the trails at Cam-Rock Park in Cambridge for the Sectional CC Meet on Saturday, October 22. Having superb races were junior Allisan Barrret and sophomore Nicole Tomomitsu, earning a trip to state! The top two teams at the sectional earn a trip to state along with the top five individuals not on those qualifying teams. Allisan Barrett was the 4th fastest of the individual qualifiers racing to a 6th place finish in 19:13. Nicole Tomomitsu was poised early and stayed committed to the goal of also qualifying for state by running a ferocious last half of her race to dust the runners around her and take 7th overall and the 5th and final individual qualifying spot in a huge PR of 19:17. These two earned state meet experience last year as members of the 7th place team, but this is the first time they both made it as individual qualifiers. Also running a PR were freshmen Abby Grosinske and Hailey Prager. Hailey fought her way to a finishing time of 22:27. Abby was able to modify a few things in her training that allowed her to run a huge personal best of 23:08. Seniors Rebekah Schumacher and Sophie Elworthy finished their careers placing 62nd and 89th. Maribel Alvarez raced her way to 90th overall to round out the 7 competing Whippets. The team finished in 6th place overall, arguably their best team race of the season. The boys were once again led by junior Jacob Korf. He placed 12th in 16:55. Overall the boys finished in 7th place. Allisan and Nicole will run in the WIAA D2 Girls race at 2:25 on Saturday, October 29th, in Wisconsin Rapids, at the Ridges Golf Course.
