Programmers Place Second at MSOE

Sixteen current and former AP Computer Science students competed at the Milwaukee School of Engineering Opportunity Conference on Friday, November 21. The competition was their largest ever with 37 teams competing from 11 high schools in southeast Wisconsin and Illinois. Students worked for 2.5 hours in teams of four to create solutions for 9 programming problems of varying difficulty. Problems were worth either 10, 20, or 40 points. Incorrect solutions submitted to the judges were penalized three points, but teams could then resubmit a different solution for partial credit. No team solved all 9 problems correctly. The Whitewater team of Gabe Heller, Wentao Guo, Chamath Gunawardena, and Leif Sahyun solved seven problems correctly and placed second overall. The Whitewater team of Mitch Dalzin, Devin Samaranayake, Zach Brantmeier, and Nick Kuzoff solved five of the problems correctly and finished tied for fifth overall.

Fall Musical Opens Thursday

Take in a hot performance of the Whitewater High School Players production of “The Drowsy Chaperone,” November 20-22, at 7:30 pm, in the WHS Auditorium. “The Drowsy Chaperone” is a silly, stylized parody of American musical comedies of the 1920s, completely original and not based on a movie or book. The play is filled with hummable tunes like “Toledo Surprise” that will be stuck in your head as you walk – or maybe dance – out the door. To chase his blues away, a modern day musical theatre addict known simply as "Man in Chair" drops the needle on his favorite LP — the 1928 musical comedy “The Drowsy Chaperone” – and the uproariously funny musical magically bursts to life on stage, telling the tale of a pampered Broadway starlet who wants to give up show business to get married, her producer who sets out to sabotage the nuptials, her chaperone, the debonair groom, the dizzy chorus girl, the Latin lover and a pair of gangsters who double as pastry chefs. Reserved seat tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for senior citizens and students and are on sale now at the WHS Box Office or by calling 262-472-8178 to reserve your seats.
