(May 26) The City of Whitewater
continues clean-up efforts after last Wednesday's storm.
Due to the large amount of debris from fallen trees and
limbs, two crews from the Streets/Parks/Forestry Division of the Department of
Public Works (DPW) have been out each day to collect brush throughout the City.
As of this afternoon, crews made a full run through of the City for curbside
pick-up of their brush. Another curbside pick-up will take place on Tuesday and
citizens will not need to call for brush clean-up next week.
all available crew members have been working on the curbside collection, the
city has been unable to clear all the debris from all municipal parks. Due to
the amount of debris left to clean, the parks may not be up to their normal
standard. City crews remind citizens to be careful when walking within the
parks and watch for branches and debris.
City staff would like to
extend a special thank you to all community members for their involvement in
clean-up efforts on their own property and in their respective neighborhoods.
The City would also like to thank the public for their patience as crews
continue to work on clean-up.
City offices and services will be closed
Monday, May 29, in observance of Memorial Day. Services will resume Tuesday May
(May 26) WIAA East Troy Sectional
Track and Field

- and enjoying it. Picture courtesy of Bob Mischka - for extensive picture
Coach John Houwers: The Whippets had a good night in East
Troy this evening, qualifying 9 to the state meet in LaCrosse next weekend. The
meet started with the field events at 3:30.
First to compete was
Cassidy Laue and Miranda Reynolds in the high jump. Cassidy had 2 very nice
attempts at opening height, but missed all three and took a no height. While it
was disappointing today, she was the only freshman to make it to Sectionals in
the high jump. Miranda Reynolds was able to clear 4-8, 5-0, and 5-2 without a
miss. She missed her first attempt at 5-3, but cleared on her second jump to
secure her first trip to state.
Sashi Popke was next to compete, going
in the pole vault. His best coming into the competition was 11-6. He was able
to get some good work on a bigger pole the last two days, and it paid off. He
was able to clear 12-3 on the new pole and ended up finishing 4th and
qualifying for state. This was a huge accomplishment for the sophomore,
especially since he only began vaulting about 6 weeks ago.
Rasmussen was next as he was in the second flight of the triple jump. It would
seemed to be his strongest event, but Logan found himself in a dog fight to
qualify. At one point in the competition, 4 jumpers were within 3/4 of an inch
each other, with only 3 of them set to advance. Logan cleared things up a bit
on his final jump when he went 43-6 to win the competition.
4x800 relay got the running events started at 4:15. The ladies ran a very good
time and won the first heat. Ali Ketterhagen had a season best split of 2:39.6
to set the stage. Jenna Lee, Allisan Barrett and Hailey Prager all ran splits
between 2:44 and 2:46 to finish 15 seconds better than their seed time. It was
good enough to finish 10th.
The boys 4x800 relay had high hopes. They
came in seeded 2nd, and expecting to advance. Like any good Sectional race,
they found themselves in a dogfight. Jacob Korf set the stage. He was in 6th
coming down the home stretch, but passed a number of teams in the last 100m.
Mike Mattingly took a good exchange and took the lead at the start of the
second leg. He was passed by Ripon and handed off to Connor Laue in 2nd. Connor
took off determined to keep up with Ripon. He may have gotten out a little too
hard and fell a couple spots. That said, his aggressiveness brought him his
best split of the season. Matt Mattingly had to keep the team in the top 4 to
qualify. He was able to finish strong like he always seems to and finished with
a 2:01 split and a 2nd place finish. Their time of 8:14.05 was a season best by
The 4x200 relays were next. The girls team of Morgan Radaj,
Abby Grosinske, Rebekah Schumacher and Hailey Murphy ran a great race, but
ended up just 0.34 out of qualifying with a 1:48.73 and finished 5th.
The boys team of Juan Cuellar, Sashi Popke, Seth Heine, and Tyler Sheffield ran
a season best time of 1:34.24 to win their heat and finish 7th overall.
Seven of the 8 athletes that ran come back next year, so both teams are
excited for next year already, looking for a little redemption.
Meanwhile, Logan was back at the jumps, this time going in the long
jump. It was looking like he was going to be bumping up against his open 400m
race, so he moved to the front of his flight to get his jumps in before
running. His series was excellent, going 21-7, 21-4, and finally 22-4. His jump
of 22-4 is the third best in WHS history and allowed him the luxury of watching
all the other jumpers try to beat him while not needing to jump again. That
jump is the best jump in Division 2 heading into the state meet. Logan got to
ride the positive mojo into his 400m race. He was in the 1st heat and knew he
would have to throw down a good time if he wanted a third event. He did just
that, going 51.50. It was just enough, edging out a runner in the 2nd heat by
0.02 s for the final qualifying spot in the 400m dash. Unfortunately, that
would be the last of the state qualifiers.
The girls 4x100m relay was
looking for a little redemption after the 4x200. Unfortunately they found the
same fate. They ran a great race in heat 1, going 51.76. That was only good
enough for 5th again, just .05 out of 4th. Morgan Wiedenhoeft, Grosinske,
Radaj, and Reynolds had smooth handoffs, but it wasn't to be. The two near
missed will sting for a while and provide motivation to work hard and get
faster for next season.
Jacob Korf got a chance for an individual race,
going after it in the 800m run. He gave himself a chance, going out on the back
end of the lead group. The others proved to have a little more as he dropped
off in the second lap, going 2:06.94.
The girls 4x400m relay team of
Hailey Murphy, Abby Grosinsle, Ali Ketterhagen and Rebekah Schumacher ran a
season best of 4:17.76, good enough for 7th. Murphy and Ketterhagen both had
their season best splits, while Schumacher and Grosinske matched their best
The boys 4x400m relay fell to the same fate as the girls. A 6th
place finish was the best they could do. It was a more physical race through
the exchanges and even at times on the backstretch than they were used to. But
their 3:32.05 was where they had been most of the season.
As a whole,
almost everyone that competed performed at their best. They really peaked at
the right time. It's always hard to see your season come to a close, but it's a
little easier when you do so with your best performance of the year.
Dalton Chenoweth and Daniel Soto will join the other qualifiers, ready
to step in on the 4x800 relay should they be needed. All 9 WHS athletes will
head to LaCrosse next Thursday night, and compete on Friday morning. The long
jump is the only event that will be competed on Saturday. It will be a busy
weekend for the seniors, as they will get home to walk across the graduation
stage on Sunday. What a great way to end their high school careers."
(May 26) The Rock Valley Conference
tournament began this week with the Whippets winning three games defeating
Clinton 10 - Edgerton 4-2 and East Troy 3-0 placing Whitewater in to fifth
place for the 2017 RVC standings.

the visiting Cougars after a weather related delay. Amanda Kraayvanger (1),
Brittney Piper (1), Milena Maroske (3), Meikayla Korf (3), Jenna Prah (1) and
Brianna Zimdars (1) all scored in the sixty minute contest.
advanced to play Edgerton with the win over Clinton. In yet another soggy
contest on Tuesday, the Whippets were tied with Edgerton 1-1, Milena Maroske
earned the first half goal on a direct kick in to the upper ninety. Late in the
second Amanda Kraayvanger scored three times, one assisted by Milena Maroske,
the other by Meikayla Korf, to extend the lead to three. Edgerton scored once
more, but the ardent defense of Whitewater held the lead. Whitewater would now
face East Troy on Thursday.
JV traveled to Edgerton, played an exciting
game, but was unable to bring home the win, falling to the Tide 1-3.
Thursday's weather was beautiful, low seventies and sunshine for the
start of the game against the Trojans. The Whippets were flat in the first
half, playing East Troy to a 0-0 halftime score. Fortunately, the Whippets woke
up in the second half to produce coordinated team effort, solid defense, strong
midfield play and distribution led to three goals to finish off the Trojans.
Brittney Piper (2) and Amanda Kraayvanger (1) found the back of the net.
The Whippets will begin WIAA regional play on Thursday, traveling to
Delavan Darien for a 7:00PM contest.
(May 26) WHS Baseball Regional win
over East Troy
Jason Curtis Picture courtesy of Bob Mischka - for
extensive picture gallery
Whitewater Whippets Baseball team (17-6) got off to a
slow start in their first playoff game against 6th seed East Troy but battled
back for the 7-2 win. Jason Curtis picked up the win as he went 6 innings
giving up 2 hits and 2 unearned runs. Bryce Parrish then shut the door in the
7th striking out the side. Jason Curtis also led the offense with 3 hits and
Cooper Pease had 2 RBI's as the Whippets were held without a hit until the
bottom of the 4th and found themselves down 2-0. An East Troy error followed by
a walk started a 4 run rally that would give the Whippets the lead for good.
East Troy managed just two runners on base after the 2nd inning. Next up, the
Whippets travel to the 2 seed Racine Lutheran/Prairie School on Tuesday May
30th, 5:00PM at Horlick Field, Racine.
(March 26)Boys' Tennis sectional
meet at East Troy - Wednesday
Mitchell Dalzin and Justin Brantmeier, WHS #1 Doubles
team, qualified for the State Tournament Picture courtesy of Bob Mischka -
for extensive picture gallery
Coach Jordan Dittmer: "Johaly Xochipa: Joahly had
qualified for Sectionals at the #4 singles spot and had 2 matches. He lost his
first match to Ripon 6-4, 6-1. He then bounced back in the next match though,
beating St. Mary's Catholic in 3 sets with a score of 6-7, 6-4, 6-1. This
earned Johaly a 3rd place finish. He utilized the lob shot very effectively
today and did a great job of coming into the net and hitting some crisp
volleys. He has come a long way over the course of the season and finished on a
very high note.
Mitchell Dalzin and Justin Brantmeier: Our #1 doubles
team was the highlight of the day. They upset the top-seeded Wayland Academy in
their first match. Wayland Academy was 18-0 coming into the day so this was
very exciting for our boys. We played our best match of the season in the 7-5,
6-1 victory. They did an excellent job of being aggressive at the net and mixed
up their formations well to keep Wayland on edge. They did end up losing the
final two matches of the day, but that 1st match was the big one. By winning
that first match, they qualified for the WIAA State Tournament. I believe this
is the first time that Whitewater has sent a doubles team to the state
tournament. I, along with the other coaches (Sander Hansen and Brenna Pamperin)
have enjoyed our first year of coaching and are glad the season is continuing
for us. We are very proud of the way our guys played today. Go Whippets!"

Golf Team competed in the WIAA Regional Tournament held at The Broadlands and

Senior captain, Jake Walton, fired a season low 85 to
qualify for the Sectional Tournament held next Tuesday at Racine Country Club.
The team shot a 357 to turn in their lowest round of the year. Billie Jo Parker
and Josiah Swaffer narrowly missed qualifying with rounds of 86 and 87
respectively. Whitney Treder shot a 99 and Johnathan Swaffer a 101 to round out
the Whippet scoring. Walton was able to break through to Sectionals after
missing out by one stroke the two previous seasons. According to Coach Wiegman,
"Jake is playing his best golf at exactly the time you want to be peaking as an
athlete. To be honest, I'm not surprised. Jake has worked his butt off for this
opportunity. We're looking forward to the challenge next Tuesday in

(May 18) The City of Whitewater was
hit just before 7 p.m. Wednesday night with strong winds and heavy rain. The
initial storm lasted under thirty minutes but the destruction left behind will
take crews the next few days to restore.
Wed night, the sight of downed trees and branches were
visible throughout the city (200 block Cottage Street)
"It's amazing to see how much damage a storm can make in
such a short time," says Kristin Mickelson, Whitewater PR & Communications
Manager. " Thankfully no one was injured and we are on the road to recovery due
to the quick response of our city staff and community members."
Whitewater Police, Fire Department and City crew members assessed the
areas needing immediate attention and were in place minutes after the storm
ended. They began barricading streets, sidewalks and public access areas
clearing large branches and trees that had fallen into the streets along with
poles, electrical wires and other debris.
Wed. night burning electrical wires visible within
branches. (200 block Cottage Street)
The communications center received hundreds of calls in a
very short time frame and officers responded to over 80 calls for service. Many
homes and businesses within the city experienced power outages and some are
still currently waiting for electricity to be restored. WE Energies has been
diligently working to fix the problems around town, including the school
district that closed schools today due to the power outage.
worked late into the night to clear as many streets as possible. Officers and
staff stayed on site until after the second storm ended just after 11 p.m.
Crews continued to work this morning clearing brush and debris for safety of
the residents. Most damage is in the downtown and residential areas that have
many older trees and bushes. Some damage was a result of fallen trees near or
on parts of homes and vehicles.
The City posted images of the damage on
their website and Facebook page, reminding people to be cautious of the wires
and debris. Many concerned friends and family used these outlets to verify if
their loved ones were okay, share additional information and pictures and
asking where they can go to help.
Thursday afternoon tree branches clear cut around
electrical lines with both sides of street as well as limbs from Wed. night
storm filling the terraces throughout the city. (200 block of Cottage Street)
"In the short time I have worked for the city, I have
been amazed at the camaraderie and dedication the citizens of Whitewater have
for the town and each other," says Mickelson. "Minutes after the first storm, I
saw neighbors with chain saws and garbage bags helping one another remove
branches and debris from their yards, fences and homes. No questions asked,
just coming to the aid of their neighbors. What an amazing thing to witness."
Director of Emergency Management with the Walworth County, Lt. John
Ennis reminds citizens, they are generally safest in their homes or in shelters
during storms. Though it may be tempting to travel through town during or after
a storm, it is suggested to stay indoors to allow first responders and
maintenance crews to handle their jobs and keep streets clear of additional
City staff and crews will be continuing to clean up debris
within the city well into next week. Although every situation is different,
Whitewater staff is prepared to spring into action when necessary to get the
job done and ensure the safety of their community is top priority.
(May 18) Whitewater Offers
Memory Screenings as Part of Their Dementia-Friendly
Forgetting where you set your keys or mistaking someone
for another person is not abnormal behavior in our fast paced lives. However,
continued forgetfulness or confusion on a frequent basis could be early signs
of dementia. Whitewater is now offering memory screenings as an option to help
detect early signs of memory problems.
A memory screening is a simple
health assessment consisting of a series of questions and tasks designed to
gauge memory, language and thinking skills. This ten minute assessment is a
face-to-face meeting with no preparation required, is confidential and is
strongly encouraged for anyone with concerns of memory loss.
screenings are a significant first step towards discovering memory problems but
not many people know about the screenings or where to have them done. This is
where two local healthcare professionals stepped in to bring this service to
Pat Metz, a retired RN and Judy Kaspar, a retired clinical
social worker, knew they could help. Both women became certified memory
screeners through the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA) to provide this
meaningful and free health service in Whitewater.
"Early detection is
important in two ways," says Metz. "It allows for a better chance that medical
interventions or clinical trials may slow the progression of symptoms. It can
also afford an individual the opportunity to participate in long term care,
legal and financial planning discussions with their families, and obtain social
Metz also says some memory problems can be caused by
vitamin deficiencies including thyroid problems, infections or dehydration but
can be readily treated. That is where the screenings come into play.
The Whitewater Dementia-Friendly Community Initiative (DFCI) is
designed to educate the community about Dementia and how anyone can help those
who suffer from this disease. Metz and Kasper are able to use their
professional skills and passion to help people learn about Alzheimer's early
detection screenings and early treatment. They encourage others to participate
"[DFCI] is a group of other healthcare professionals and
dedicated volunteers working toward educating the community and, hopefully,
eliminating the stigma of dementia," says Kaspar.
The first screenings are available Wednesday, June 7th at the Starin
Park Community Center. Call (262) 473-0535 to make an appointment. Bonnie
Beam-Stratz, of the Alzheimer's Association of SE Wisconsin, will present on
The Basics of Memory Loss and Alzheimer's disease at 2:00 p.m. and this is open
to the public. If you are interested in being part of the Whitewater
DFCI, contact Deb Weberpal at (262)473-0535.
