(August 31) Maj. Gen. Marcia Anderson, the Army's first female African-American Major General, gave an address as part of the UWW's annual Women in Higher Education Leadership event. General Anderson covered her journey from her childhood in Beloit and East St. Louis MO. She noted that When I tell people I am from East St. Louis, its to suggest to them that Im lucky I even made it out. But what I say to that is it makes you more determined to take that stereotype and turn it on its head. She followed with many interesting comments on her progress to the position in the military and her civilian position as a lawyer. She is currently on leave from the United States Courts, where she serves as the Clerk of Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Wisconsin, located in Madison. For more on Major General Anderson check out the story by Amy Smith, staff writer, Daily Jefferson County Union.

October is the perfect time for some "spirits" and fun.

Parking Lot "G" behind the Chamber office at 6:45pm for Randy's Restaurant
where refreshments and a little home brew will be served along with a

tales of the past; maybe you'll see a "spirit" from yesterday. The tour will
end with refreshments at Second Salem.
(August 30) The Whitewater boys soccer team (1-1-1), hosted Sugar River Thursday evening, in a non-conference match and winning 2-0. Coming off a big win at McFarland earlier in the week, the team was ready. Both teams played solid throughout most of the first half with each having several scoring opportunities. Finally in the 40th minute of the first half, Mark Cuevas was able to take a loose ball in the Sugar River penalty box and put it past their keeper, Cullen Penny. The second half played much like the first with both teams battling in the midfield for control. In the 67th minute, Jake Walton, on an assist by Mark Cuevas, was able to find the back of the net, which made it 2-0, Whitewater. Coach Menager was very pleased with how his team communicated and controlled the pace of play. Once again, the defense was solid with notable play by Daniel Falcon, Keegan Stoneworth, and Chamath Gunawardena. Jimmy Cushman recorded his first shutout in goal with 4 saves. Bryce Parish also got some time in the net and recorded 2 saves. Whitewater is now 1-1-0 in conference and 2-1-1 overall. The Junior varsity continues to play well with a 2-2 tie against a strong Sugar River JV squad. The next varsity match will be Friday, August 30th, at home against Delavan, with a 6:45 pm start. (Rich Gunter)
Jake Walton kicks the second goal of the game.
The Whitewater Boys
soccer team (2-1-1),hosted the undefeated Delavan Comets Friday night.
Delavan played a very fast paced game, which eventually wore down the Whippet
defense. Whitewater unfortunately lost 3 defensive starters to injury mid-way
through the first half which impacted the half. The key to Delavan's attack
were Juan J. Rocha and Tigrio Huerta who accounted for all 6 Comet goals in the
match. Whitewater had several chances during the match, but was kept out of the
goal with good goalkeeping by Juan L. Rocha. The match was shortened with 10
minutes left in the second half due to lightning, with the Comets winning 6-0.
Coach Menager commented that he was not disappointed with the overall play of
his varsity squad, but acknowledged that Delavan was a very good team and this
was a learning game for the Whippets. Jimmy Cushman was in net for Whitewater
for the first half and 3 saves on 7 shots taken. Freshman Bryce Parrish minded
the net in the second half and 2 saves on 4 shots.

Girls' Conference Relay Team

(August 28) Whippets Girls' Freshman Volleyball Team participated in a Wawautosa Tournament over the weekend. The Whippets Girls' Freshman Volleyball Team came out strong against South Milwaukee. Everyone was working together and the team was in synchronization. They beat South Milwaukee in two games. The first set against Wawautosa West went to the Whippets where they came out energized and played well together. The second set went to Wawautosa West who came out strong and outplayed the Whippets. The third set to fifteen went to the Whippets where they came energized and ready to play. The game was very well played and the girls were very well focused. The third game was against Arrowhead and didn't go the Whippets' way. Arrowhead came out extremely strong with full blocks and intense hits. The Whippets lost both games to a strong Arrowhead team. The fourth game was in the playoff part of the tournament with single elimination. The Whippets faced Brookfield East. The Whippets tried their best to get the serve receive passes so the setter could get a good set off of them, but the jump serves got the best of the passes. Brookfield East was a very strong team and the Whippets just fell short in both games ending the tournament for them. (Stephanie Trannel Freshman Coach)
