Mrs. Jessie Dugan will be our new English teacher (replacing Barry DeKemper).

In addition, you will find Mrs. De Anda Levine in a new location as she moves into the Student Services Office (taking over for the retired Dianne Butt). Gina Foucault will be returning to serve as Attendance and Discipline Secretary (in the position vacated by De Anda Levine). You’ll also see another familiar face in the building as Mr. Rob Bughman is coming out of retirement to work as a half-time special education teacher.
  • Coach Seibold Returns for Alumni Meet

    Saturday was a great day for Whippet Nation. Coach Dirk Seibold was honored in the 15th running of the Whitewater Cross Country Alumni meet. The turnout was tremendous and there wasn’t a person that didn’t share a smile, a hand shake, or hug with Coach Seibold. Beyond all the championships and success that his era of coaching produced, it was the deep relationships, lasting memories, and positive mentoring that was so highly regarded by his athletes. Coach Seibold was for the athletes each and every day of his career. He led by example and coached every athlete to the finish line no matter what number or level of race they competed in. Coach Seibold is the reason why Whitewater Cross Country is a household name to those that know running. The race itself was a great battle between the Whippet Alums and the current Whippet runners. On both sides, the alumni proved to have too much experience and took home both victories with the alumni women and men scoring a 23-32 victory over the more youthful legs of the Whippet runners. Top runners in the race were junior Allisan Barrett and Nicole Tomomitsu finishing 2nd and 5th but the top alumni women of Liz Mielke (1st), Teresa Stanley (3rd) and Jen Taylor (4th) were too much up front and helped secure the victory. On the men’s side, the Whippets ran well together having a nice pack but lacked the upfront power the alumni possessed. Brett Harms was victorious again, followed by Joel Tortomasi (3rd) and Dennis Bauer in 4th. Coach Seibold’s impact is simply immeasurable; the number of people that took time out of their busy adult lives was a great indication of the fact that he is truly one of a kind. Alumni from near and far (California and Georgia!) came to make this a special day. In addition to the alumni, I’d like to thank the parents that helped the event run smoothly, all the alumni and families of these alums for attending, Ken from Rocky's for his help with lunch as well as community members that came to show their praise to Coach Seibold.

    Swimmers Launch Season with SLC Relays

    The Whitewater High School Girls’ Swim Team finished in 5th place at the SLC Conference Relays Meet on Thursday, August 25th. Senior/Captain Meghan Kehoe did an amazing job singing the National Anthem. Our relay teams were ready to go with a nice mix of veterans and new swimmers. Our only freshman swimming this meet, Lexi Hackney, had an outstanding meet proving that she will be earning points for the Whippets this year. Sophomore addition, Brianna Zimdars, earned her way on to four relays and ended the night with 2 medals. We also had a few girls from last year earn their first chance at swimming the Conference Relay Meet; congrats to Emma Kaja, Lizbeth Rodriguez, and Dalia Velazquez. Relays finishing in the top 3 of each event earn medals. Earning medals for the Whippets were the 1000 Freestyle Relay team of Brianna Zimdars, Madeline Kuhl, Anna Yeazel, and Grace Fanshaw with a strong 2nd place finish (11:15.26). These same girls swam the 4x100 Individual Medley Relay that finished in 3rd place (4:40.24).

    Soccer Opens Play at Elkhorn

    The Whitewater Boys’ Soccer team started their season at Division 2 Elkhorn on Tuesday night. The Whippet players were ready for action right from the starting whistle and maintained an even attack while shutting down the Elkhorn offense who had the advantage of a stiff wind at their back. Brian Reyes scored a header off a beautiful, long-ball cross from Thomas McManaway in the 32nd minute to put the Whippets in the lead. The team held the shut-out and went into half-time with a 1-0 lead. Coming out of the first half we knew Elkhorn would ratchet up their play to try to pull the game back. Unlucky for us, they were able to find the goal only 32 seconds into the second half. Five minutes later they found the back of the net again and continued to apply pressure. We held Elkhorn scoreless for the next 20 minutes with exceptional work from our defenders and goal-keeper. Elkhorn went up 3-1 with 20 minutes to go, and we started to run out of steam. The final score was 5-1 with Elkhorn scoring 2 goals in the last 5 minutes of the game. While we were working towards a better outcome than the final score showed, there were many positive takeaways with great play from both starters and subs.  The team will regroup, work on a few items and get ready for our next game, away at Division 1 Janesville-Craig, on Thursday night. 
  • Tennis Travels to Altoona

    The Whippet Girls’ Tennis Team finished a very busy week with a trip to Altoona/Eau Claire for matches on Thursday and Friday. Weather was involved both days shortening things on Thursday and then delaying things and keeping things from being completed on Friday. This kept the Whippets from getting everything in, but the team was able to finish several individual matches. Due to the fact that all matches weren’t able to be completed there was no way to determine an overall Invite champion. Teams that competed over the two days were Altoona, East Troy, Chippewa Falls, Bloomer, Baldwin-Woodville, New Richmond and Whitewater. With twelve girls to occupy ten spots, the girls played in different positions and with different partners throughout the trip. Every player on the team won at least one match over the two days. Picking up three wins a piece were Milena Maroske, Whitney Treder, Ali Ketterhagen, and Sydney Treder. Odessa Sonn and Sophie Olson each won two matches. Whitewater returns to action Tuesday morning with a dual meet at 9am in Whitewater against Columbus High School.
