(Sep. 19) Whitewater Tennis - The Whippets wrapped up their conference dual season with a 2-5 loss to Big Foot/Williams Bay.

Hannah Delaney

Picture courtesy of Bob Mischka - for extensive picture gallery

Coach Tim Nelson: "The match was filled with tie-breakers and could have gone either way.

We were in a position to win this match, but we just couldn't pull out enough of the tie-breakers. I am pleased that we have progressed to the point that we are putting ourselves in this position; now we just need the experience to know how to win these. This is a match that we could have won 4-3, but we also could have lost 0-7.

Big Foot's 1 singles and 1 doubles are just very good. They are at the top of the conference. I was very pleased with my 2 singles and 2 doubles. They both lost set tie-breakers that can really make it tough to come back and then have to win a third set tie-breaker to win the match, but they both pulled it off.

Kaitlyn Partoll had the closest match of the night. She played one of her best sets of the year in the opening set and then struggled a little in the second. She came back and played some nice points in the tie-breaker, but also had a few points that we will use as teaching points for the future. She fought hard though before falling 14-12.

Whitewater will take part in the Rock Valley Conference Tournament on Thursday beginning at 3pm with action taking place at both UW-Whitewater courts and Whitewater High School."

The City of Whitewater gained its Wisconsin Bird City designation in 2014. The Whitewater Urban Forestry Commission (UFC) is responsible for implementing and fulfilling the requirements to maintain this designation. Bird City Wisconsin mobilizes citizens and public officials who already know that birds are more than beautiful - they are significant. A Bird City is a community whose government educates its citizens about birds while implementing sound conservation practices. Whitewater is one of them! Bird City Wisconsin encourages its communities to address the decline of urban birds like the Chimney Swift and Purple Martin, species that have declined in Wisconsin by 32.3% and 92.7%, respectively, over the last 40 years. They support our community in our efforts to protect and manage green space, build and erect nesting structures, landscape with native plants, reduce threats like collisions, and generally make urban areas friendlier for breeding, wintering, and migrating birds.
