Coach Judy Harms
"Whippet Girls' Basketball Team came to play, jumping out to a 26-2 first
quarter performance to extend their winning streak to 8-0. Myriama Smith-Traore
led the girls with 17, 10 in the first quarter. Sarah Schumacher followed suit
with 16 for the night. Both played quite an impressive game, dominating the
paint, but what was even more impressive was how scrappy and intense the girls
played all night long as a team. Stepping up with intensity has been a big team
goal the last two games, and it certainly showed. We need to continue that
performance and mentality the entire season now.
Whippets will travel to
McFarland this Friday to finish out for the holiday break. We hope to see a
good number of graduates at the girls alumni game on Saturday, December 27th.
The girls game will be at noon."

and had some nice performances by the student-athletes.
Coming away with a
championship included Irving Sedano, who avenged a loss to the Janesville Craig
athlete on Tuesday this time winning 5-2. John Saylor finished the day 5-0 with
some dominating wins and a couple very nicely wrestled matches in the 3rd
period. Our third champion was James Ehlen who also had a very nice day going
5-0. James has had some tough competition up to this point. He wrestled very
sound matches to have his best showing of the year thus far. Also medaling for
the Whippets included Daniel Soto (2nd) and Tommy DuVal (3rd) Daniel had a 6
man bracket that was wrestled as a round robin and finished 4-1, dropping his
opening match but then did a great job having a short memory and pinned his
next four opponents, 3 of which in the first period. Tommy DuVal also was in 6
man bracket and wrestled in a round robin. Tommy was 3-2 on the day losing two
close matches but had a couple of pins to secure the bronze medal.
coaching staff would like to thank the wrestlers for an outstanding job setting
up the 4 mats and taking them down when it was all over. Also a thank you goes
out to the parents who provided lunch for the workers, officials and coaches.
As always it was excellent. Finally thank you to the parents who provided their
support in the concession stand throughout the day.
