  • Girls' Track Team Wins Triple, High, and Long Jumps

    The Whippet Track and Field Teams were at the Fort Invite on Friday night. On a relatively cold and wet night, the teams competed hard and had some nice performances. The highlight of the evening was once again Logan Rasmussen. Logan won all three events he was in, taking the triple jump, 400m dash, and anchoring a come from behind victory for the 4x400m relay. His fellow relay members, Matt and Mike Mattingly and Juan Cuellar, ran great legs to put them in position for Logan to finish things off. The girls had a number of good performances as well, winning 4 events. Allisan Barrett ran a steady race in the 3200m, in typical Ali fashion. She started out letting the field go out strong, but quickly settled into her pace. She gradually picked off every runner and ended up leading the second half of the race. The field events were strong for the ladies as well. The trio of Ali Ketterhagen, Miranda Reynolds, and Brianna Tillett each won a jumping event, taking the triple, high, and long jumps respectively. Ali continues to improve as the season progresses, with a season best for the 3rd meet in a row, going 33 feet. Miranda won the high jump with an excellent jump at 5'2", but wasn't able to quite repeat it at 5'4". Brianna was the only girl to jump over 15', going 15'5". Other highlights included and great boys’ 4x800m relay from Jacob Korf, Mike and Matt Mattingly, and Connor Laue, Hailey Prager with a lifetime best in the 800m, Sophie Elworthy with another PR in the shot, and Cassidy Laue making finals in the 200m. Morgan Weidenhoeft had a great meet, taking second in the 100m dash, just .02 seconds out of first, and running well on both the 4x1 and 4x2 relays. The North Divisional meet is next on Tuesday at Jefferson.

  • CNC Boot Camp Offers Free Training Opportunity and Paid Internship

    Two Whitewater High School students, Logan Henry and Devon Fleming, have successfully participated in the Walworth County High School CNC Boot Camp program, which is a partnership between the Walworth County Job Center and Gateway Technical College. After the 28-week Boot Camp portion was completed, Logan and Devon began a mentorship program at Basin Precision Machining in Whitewater. The pair, along with fellow WHS student Logan Robb, work daily shifts at Basin. The high school Boot Camp is modeled after the very successful adult CNC Boot Camp that runs in Racine. The high school students follow the same curriculum as the adults, however they receive 28 weeks to complete their training while the adults get 14 weeks. Students earn certificates for their training in safety, as well as for course completion. All the boot camps are a free training opportunity – zero cost to the student or their family! Boot Camp students learn more than just CNC operation skills. The boot camp is run as though it is a job, and students learn Workplace Excellence skills alongside their classroom education. These soft skills are transferable to any job they pursue. The High School CNC Boot Camp allows students to start a career in the field of manufacturing which offers high demand jobs and competitive pay. All Boot Camp students earn credits towards their high school graduation as well as 16 credits towards college. Currently, the boot camp students are completing their paid work experiences at Basin. The students benefit from the mentors, who help them sharpen their newly learned CNC skills in a real world setting while being paid. The company in turn benefits by gaining well trained CNC operators to fill valuable positions. Through the Boot Camp and their work experience at Basin, the students have learned basic machine controls, offsetting program procedures, loading and unloading parts, deburring, inspection techniques, cross training on assembly, general housekeeping, and how to work on a team. “The boot camp is a really great opportunity that students should take advantage of. Not only do you learn about CNC machining, but you also gain job skills and work ethic,” said Devon. Students entering their senior year who are interested in taking advantage of taking the 2017 High School CNC Boot Camp should contact their high school guidance counselor or the Walworth County Job Center for more information.
