Musical Stars Shine at Tommy Awards

The 2015 Tommy Awards celebrate excellence in musical theater and feature performances and production numbers from award-winning high school musical casts, leads and supporting performers. The annual event was held at Madison’s Overture Center on June 7, 2015. Whitewater High School had two students selected to perform at the Overture Center. Sally Kate Hixson received The Spirit Award and performed with other Spirit Award winners. Josh Pelayo received an Outstanding Lead Performer for his performance in the Drowsy Chaperone. Josh performed with an ensemble cast that featured other winners in the same category. The 2015 Tommy Awards are part of WPT’s multiyear Young Performers Initiative, which celebrates Wisconsin’s young artists and those who inspire them. The Tommy Awards are named in honor of local musical theater hero Tom Wopat, a critically acclaimed and Tony Award-nominated singer and actor from Lodi. 

 

Staff Members Say Farewell

Whitewater High School is saying goodbye to three staff members as the school year comes to a close. Ms. Libby Dahlinger will be heading to Oshkosh West for a mathematics teaching position that takes her closer to home. Ms. Elizabeth Balge will be leaving us for a French job in Illinois near where her fiancé lives, and Ms. Petra Vande Zande is leaving teaching to pursue an advanced degree in Biology at the University of Michigan. We thank them for their service and wish them all the best!

Three Compete at State

The 2015 track and field season came to an end at the State Meet on the UW-LaCrosse track. The weekend started out with Keagen Stonewerth competing in the pole vault. Keagen jumped well, clearing 13' 9" in the vault. Stonewerth made the podium with a 4th place finish. Sarah Ziolkowski toed the line Friday morning for her race in the 1600m. She was in contention for a medal in the top six before eventually fading to a 9th place finish overall with a time of 5:17.99. Kailey Reynolds had a busy day on Friday with prelims in the 100m and 200m, as well as the long jump competition. Kailey placed third in her heat prelims for the 100m, and then she jumped 16' 8.5" in prelims for the long jump to advance to the finals in both events. She finished 13th overall in the 200m. She returned for finals of the long jump, going 16' 11" in finals. That was good enough to place 8th overall. Saturday brought the finals of the 100m dash. She had a much better start on day two and finished 4th to make the awards stand. Whether it was coming in at 6:30 in the morning to lift weights all year long or logging over 200 miles running in the summer and countless more in sub-zero temperatures during the winter, Keagen, Sarah, and Kailey all put in the time and effort to have their chance to be the best.
