Baseball Defeats Palmyra

The Whippet Baseball Team topped Palmyra-Eagle last night by a score of 9 to 5. Whitewater took advantage of 7 Palmyra walks with some timely hits by Julian Sonn, Tyler Hill, Scott Gorsuch, and Bailey Meyer. Whitewater pitchers struggled themselves at times to locate in a tight strike zone giving up 8 walks but battled through to get the win. Scott Gorsuch gave up only 1 earned run over 4 innings, while striking out 7 to earn the win. Tyler Hill came in and pitched the remaining 3 innings, striking out 4, to secure it for the Whippets. Whitewater hosts East Troy on Saturday at 2 p.m. in a Rock Valley Conference double header.

Softball Scores a Victory Over Palmyra

The Whippet Girls’ Softball Team defeated Palmyra-Eagle 5-4 on Tuesday night. Coach Dowden remarked, “It was nice to see our defense play so well.  Several times Palmyra-Eagle got players on base, and we were able to keep them from scoring.  Schumacher pitched well knowing she had some good gloves behind her in the field. Great catches were turned in by Tuinstra in left, Babcock in center, and Hixson against the first base fence in the 7th.  Our bats came alive in the sixth inning.  We scored five runs but could have had more if it wasn't for three line drives getting caught to dampen big innings.  We are coming around nicely; now we need to show what we can do against a tough team like Edgerton.”

Stonewerth Matches School Record

The track and field teams traveled to East Troy on Tuesday to take on the Trojans.  The boys came away with a 75-71 victory, while the girls fell 95-51.  The highlight of the night was Keagen Stonewerth matching the school record in the pole vault with a jump of 13-9.  Xhonatan Shahollari had a nice day in the triple jump, winning the event with a jump of 36-9.5. Other event winners for the boys were James Ehlen, Brett Harms, Brad Stoll, and Joe Bullis.  The 4x1, 4x4, and 4x8 relays were also all victorious.  On the girls’ side, it was great to see Sarah Ziolkowski get back on the track.  She competed for the first time this season, coming off an injury, and was a member of the winning 4x8 relay team.  Dani Dolan joined her on that relay and also won the 400 and 200.  Lindsay Chase took the shot put, and Liz Mielke took the 800m.  Kelly O'Hara ran a great 100m race, getting beat at the finish by only 0.1 second.  Saturday is the Randy Lyon Memorial held at WHS, honoring former Whippet Randy Lyon.  The meet begins at 10 am.


Spanish Club Holds Chocolate Tasting Event

Spanish Club students gathered for a Chocolate tasting event. Students tasted chocolate ranging from 90% cocoa or cacao (name for the bean from which chocolate is derived) to 31% cacao. We also tried chocolate varieties that were made with coconut, chili peppers, salted caramel, and sea salt. Finally we enjoyed some milk chocolate and some white chocolate with strawberries. We learned that even white chocolate is made from cocoa butter, a byproduct extracted from the cocoa bean. Voted as favorites were dark chocolate with salted caramel and milk chocolate with salted caramel.
