(May22) WHS lost to
Delavan in the second round of the WIAA Tournament, 11-10, in 9 innings.
Coach Nelson - "You hate to end the season any other way than
with a win, but that doesn't happen very often, if it has to end this is the
way to do it, fighting hard all the way. We were down from the word go but
never gave up. Tying the game up in the top of the 7th after being down by 4
showed a lot. I have said it several times this year but that kind of stuff
really shows how this team has grown. Kacie Snyder had a great night at the
plate with 4 hits as did Stephanie Nelson who only had 1 hit, but was on base 5
times. Stephanie also did a nice job on the mound tonight as she came in and
kept us in the ballgame giving us the opportunity to make the comeback. Kelsey
Hintz played 3rd for us tonight and played some great defense. Not a win, but
it showed what my seniors have done throughout their career. Their freshmen
year the team won 1 game, this year we advanced to the second round of the
playoffs and finished the season with 8 wins. The underclassman had a great
group to learn from and I see them continuing to improve throughout their
careers as well."

The girls 4x8 ran very well, including an excellent lead off leg from
Dani Dolan. She ran a season best split and really set us up to finish strong.
Sarah Ziolkowski ran a season best split on the second leg as well. Jacquelyn
Caldwell and Amanda Herold rounded out the relay. That's a relay we haven't run
much this season, so I am really excited to see how well they can do on
Thursday. Jacquelyn Caldwell also had her best vault of the season, clearing
For the boys, Brad Stoll and Sung-Min Kang both qualified in the
shot put. They have been strong for us all season, so it's great to see both

hurdles. Jack will try to earn a repeat trip to state in the 110 hurdles, while
Joe will try to make it in the 300 hurdles."

Asst Coach McCrea "On Friday, May 17th the Whippets
hosted and defeated Edgerton on a first half penalty kick by Holly Hough. At
the ten minute mark of the first half Whitewater was in Edgeton's penalty box
when Melanie Martinez was fouled and the Whippet's awarded a penalty kick that
Hough drove into the goal. The remainder of the game was a defensive match for
the tired Whippets after playing 100 minutes the previous night against
Edgerton. Whitewater is now 7-5-1 overall and in the RVC. Up next, the Whippets
host McFarland on Tuesday, May 21st at 4:45 and 6:45."
Asst Coach McCrea "Whippets tie Evansville 2-2 On
Thursday, May 16th the Whippets traveled to Evansville and played the Blue
Devils to a 2-2 tie. Whitewater was up 1-0 at halftime on a goal by Aly Quass.
In the second half the Blue Devils tied the game. Quass scored her second goal
of the night to put Whitewater up 2-1, but Evansville matched the goal to even
the contest for the remainder of regulation play. The opponents then played two
ten minutes overtime periods where neither team found the back of the net. JV
lost to the host Blue Devils 3-0. Whitewater's overall and RVC record going in
to Friday's match against Edgerton is 6-5-1."
(May 17) Baseball -
Edgerton beat the Whippets on Thursday night, 7-3. Next is a noon game
on Saturday, May 18, at Beloit Turner.
Coach Lauersdorf - "The final line ended up being
Edgerton with 13 hits and Whitewater with 6. We came out firing, but couldn't
hang on to the lead, ending up on the losing side of a 7-3 ballgame against
Edgerton who is fighting for the conference title with Jefferson. After
Edgerton scored to take a 1-0 lead in the top of the 3rd, we came back to take
the lead with 3 runs of our own. I felt we had an opportunity to break the game
open in that inning. We just missed a couple of opportunities in that inning
and later on in the 6th, failing to execute with runners in scoring position
with less than two outs. I felt that Danny battled against a good hitting team.
Some of their hits were soft ground balls or loopers that were just out of our
reach. There were some nice plays in the game. Jake Riemer made a diving catch
in the top of the 7th with two outs to save a run. Ryan Perez threw a runner
out from right field at third base trying to go 1st to third. That probably
saved a run."
(May 17) Boys' Tennis
Team - 5th in Rock Valley Conference
Coach Paul - "The Boys
Tennis team participated in RVC tournament Thursday afternoon. We had a
positive day. We lost all of our first round matches, but came back and got
four wins in the back draw. At 3 singles (Chamath Gunawardena) we got a second
win and ultimately a 5th place finish. We went into this tournament with one
goal: reduce unforced errors. I thought, for the most part, our guys achieved
that goal. As a result we found ourselves in closer matches. I think our guys
felt the difference. We still have a lot of room for growth in that area, but
it was nice to see progress."

(May 17) Softball -
Whippets 19 Clinton 2.
Coach Nelson - "The Whippets opened
Regional play with a very good ballgame from the start. After shutting down the
Cougars in the first, Kacy Snyder's speed forced an error followed by great
bunt by Steph Nelson and right away the Whippets had a runner on 3rd and then
the hits started coming. While everyone hit the ball well, Gina Hollingshead
had a great night going 4 x 4. The bottom of the order came through tonight as
well, led by Emilie Kachel who was 2 x 2 with a walk. Every starter had at
least one hit and the defense played well throughout. Clinton did put one
little rally together in the 3rd with 2 outs, but the girls came back right
away and put another run on the board. Scoring every inning didn't give Clinton
a chance. Steph Nelson again put no free runners on so the Cougars were going
to have to earn everything they got. On Tuesday the Whippets move on to the
second round and head to Delavan to face the #2 seeded Comets."

(May 19) The Monday
Morning Hangover #326B by Dick Enstad summarized the UWW Baseball weekend
"The Division III baseball regional at Prucha/Miller in
Whitewater started out with a bang as #6 seed St. Scholastica of Duluth
surprised the #1 St. Thomas Tommies 1-0.
The evening game found the
UW-W Warhawks edging out Case Western Reserve of Cleveland 2-0. The CWRU
Spartans turned out to be one of the surprises of the tournament.
between times UW- Stevens Point triumphed over Benedictine (IL) 6-5 in 10
This set the stage for a Whitewater - Stevens Point
confrontation the following evening. The two teams avoided meeting in the WIAC
tournament a week ago, won by Point. The Warhawks had won 3 or 4 when they met
during the regular season. Things again looked good for UW-W as they took a 5-2
lead into the 8th inning. But the Pointers tallied once in the 8th and twice in
the 9th to force extra innings. Two more runs in the 10th were enough to seal
the win. Whitewater tallied once in the bottom of the 10th but left the tying
run on third before falling 7-6.
Friday they fell victim to another
familiar foe, losing to St. Scholastica 3-2, also in 10 innings They had swept
a doubleheader from the Saints earlier in the month. This then was an
elimination game for the 'Hawks.
Stevens Point earned a trip to the
DIII World Series in Appleton by defeating Case Western Reserve 1-0 on
Saturday. They went 4-0 in the regional and will face Manchester (IN) on Friday
at Fox Cities Stadium."
